Kenny Britt will be suspended one game by the NFL, a much lighter punishment than people expected. We break down the fantasy implications.

UPDATE: (7:10 ET) PFT reports that Britt will not appeal his suspension.

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean is reporting that Tennesse Titans WR Kenny Britt will be suspended one game by the NFL for offseason conduct. Britt was arrested for a DUI in July, his eighth arrest since entering the NFL. He is also recovering from a torn ACL that ended his 2011 season after just three games.

Analysis: Britt probably got off light here, given Roger Goodell's reputation, but Titans fans and fantasy owners won't be complaining. With or without a suspension, his Week 1 status was uncertain anyway due to three knee surgeries over the past month, so the league essentially gave him a free week off to rehab. Britt is one of the top fantasy receivers in the league and has been a huge bargain in most drafts. If you haven't held your draft yet, buy low before his stock shoots back up.
