NEW ORLEANS, LA – NOVEMBER 27: Kenny Britt /

WR Kenny Britt

Projected rank (Via Yahoo! Fantasy): 105

The highest ranked player on this list, Kenny Britt, begins his Browns career after coming off his first 1,000-yard season with the Los Angeles Rams last year. Cleveland does have good news though. Britt is used to playing in environments with less-than-ideal quarterback situations.

In 2016, Britt found success with quarterbacks Case Keenum and Jared Goff throwing him the ball, so it’s not crazy to think that he’ll succeed in the Browns’ uncertain offense.

Along with his first 1,000-yard season, Britt also set a career-high with 68 receptions, a good sign for his owners in PPR (point-per-reception) formats. He should also see plenty of opportunities to eclipse his five touchdown performance last year.

Entering his age-29 season, Britt might top his 2016 campaign with an even better performance this season. Of course there’s also second-year wideout Corey Coleman, but Britt appears to be the clear cut WR1 in Cleveland.

Both of these receivers will have fantasy value in all types of leagues, and Coleman probably has the edge in dynasty formats due to his age. However in any standard league, Britt should be the higher-scoring option.
