Kenny Britt dealing with knee soreness, still a risky pick in fantasy

Kenny Britt has knee soreness yet again. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kenny Britt is dealing with knee soreness in his left knee. He missed some time last year after soreness in his right knee stemming from his ACL surgery back in 2011.

It's been a bumpy ride for Britt since tearing his ACL back in Week 3 of the 2011 season. Sadly, he was fantasy football's top receiver in the first two weeks of the season that year and he's been unable to get right since. Britt caught 45 balls for 589 yards and four scores last season.

Fantasy impact: Here we go again. Britt's injury concerns have caused him to slide in drafts and it seems more than justified with news like this. He just can't seem to stay healthy and despite his ability to stretch the field while mixing in some shorter possession-type routes, he's too much of a risk to consider as a WR2 in standard formats. He might be worth a pick later in drafts, though.
