    why do you think a lot of the winning lineups had him

  • tprokopenko

    Lions pass defense is horrific. I didn’t go with Britt myself, as I went with either Lance Kendricks at min price (which paid off) or Tavon Austin (did not pay off) in most my lineups.

    EDIT: Disregard. I somehow misread Stills as Britt haha
    EDIT2: Re-regard (?), I guess my response is relevant again.

  • bighop04

    Because they didnt?

  • bighop04

    Wow I love how the guy ahead of me knew you meant Kenny Britt, I honestly thought you meant Stills

  • Nelson01

    yea sorry britt

  • xandamere

    Because a lot of people were talking about Tavon Austin as a good tournament play. Britt was an interesting pivot from Austin at a very similar (slightly lower) price. He’d seen at least 6 targets per game in every game except 1 this season and was averaging over 15 yards per catch – he’s a pretty nice deep threat, was seeing volume, up against an atrocious pass defense in a game in which his team was projected to be behind, and would be super low owned with everyone gravitating to Austin.

    pivoting from Tavon was a good idea but most people were either all in on Tavon or laughed it off without mentioning a pivot. Never saw the name Britt come up in a weekends worth of watching conversations

    Had 2 different gpps pairing keenum with Austin because matchup was great. Man, things would have been a lot better if I went Britt. Figured Austin was the better match up to avoid their best corner, Slay, since he lines up all over.

    I’m curious how Britt ended up in some lineups too. I think it’s a given for the guys putting in hundreds of lineups. Lawn darts exist. What had me puzzled was a guy in our league had him. Pretty risky in a single entry contest. His reasoning was “Had to fill the roster and I took a shot.” Almost paid off.

  • njsum

    He was a good enough play considering his price to use in a small percentage of your tourney lineups if you had happened to notice some of the facts @xandamere had mentioned regarding opponent and role in the offense.

  • boosted23

    I think he was just a good pivot with all the tavon talk. Wish I had thought of it lol

  • Inujv87

    I played Britt and he was a target for me during the week. The reason was that at $3700 he needed 14.8 to 4x. He had been consistently been around 11 and hadn’t scored a TD all year even though he’s been decently involved. So with TD positive regression and DET being a bad defense I liked his chances to score this game and keep up his consistency while giving me salary cap relief. Now no one could’ve predicted he would’ve gone that crazy but that was my logic to playing him in tourneys this week with his low ownership since everyone was overlooking him this week.

  • netjunkie

    I heard Kenny Britt mentioned in several different videos for Rotogrinders this past week. Unfortunately, I only played him in 2 of my lineups.

  • DailyLoser

    Yea I also saw Britt mentioned in the daily NFL thread a few times. Whenever you are facing the Lions D…there is going to be a decent amount of exposure to the 1/2/3 receiver for the opposing team.

    Wasn’t expected to draw shadow coverage from Slay, terrible lions pass D, 6 inches taller than the corner he would be lining up against often, has been getting a decent share of targets and deep balls, was due for positive TD regression

    Nah, it’s more than just people putting in 100s of lineups that use him. I had 2 cash lineups and 5 GPPs. I had him in one originally but decided to take him out for Austin(huge mistake obv) Still cashed but it was a $100 loss from Austin to Britt. That game had potential with 2 terrible pass defenses(main CB for LA out) but I didn’t have the exposure I prob should’ve.

  • zpa1989

    wasn’t britt covered by darius slay? its pretty impressive a below average WR with a below average QB can put up those type of numbers against an elite nfl corner. i went tavon myself, more targets, more upside, and no slay. had the stones to use keenum tho. check it out, tough beat here

  • NESBears120

    Because Rg lineup builder put him in the lineup i liked best

  • lineupofpeace

    I actually had him in my initial lineup i put together on Tuesday, but then came to my senses and was like nah can’t play Kenny Britt

    Oh well.

  • DomTwan

    If I had rostered Kenny Britt instead of Tavon Austin I would be a millionaire.

    I knew that the Lions pass defense was bad but I went all in on Tavon Austin simply because I’m “too legit to Britt.”

    Hindsight on Britt is pretty clear. I just can’t bring myself to play players I think are bad. But the reasoning is logical. Bad defense. The Rams aren’t going to get shut down. Most people thought due to targets, matchup etc that Tavon was the play. Tavon was super popular even amongst the sharp guys in the $333 Wildcat on DK. If not Tavon, then people thought Gurley. It ended up being Britt

  • MrMadness001

    It was a good spot but I didn’t even give him a thought. Of course he falls into one of those man how did I miss that categories now after the fact. I can’t see people having Britt as a guy you would have wanted a ton of exposure to. So I assume the rosters that had him either used him as a value play in 1 of many LU’s they built.

    Or they only had a few LU’s and they got a random dart throw right. I know people like to say luck has nothing to do with DFS but I don’t 100% agree with that sentiment. If you played Britt and Tate in the same lineup yesterday you definitely had some luck on your side.

  • theoddsmaker

    Variance, randomness, standard error, etc.

    No matter how you slice it you can not predict randomness no matter how hard you try. For starters, any player that lines up for most of his teams snaps will see targets and will be susceptible to the random laws of the universe. The only thing to take away from the big Britt game is to have a better understanding of this. If you played this game out 10,000 times the “average” of all games Britt would have about 3.8 rec and 56 yards on average scoring a TD in about 30-35% of the contests. You might even find a handful of games within that simulation where he did even better then the game he actually had.

    ^ that’s honestly the best possible way to be thinking about the nature of sports projections and results in my opinion

  • Tammy409

    Haven’t read other responses, but where a sub DK’S WR needed, I put him in all LU’s as he was getting balls and he was only one who avgd. big ypcatch. John Brown I don’t trust, others discussed were buoyed bu TD’s. etc.

    This I saw as possible. Jay Ajai? Not so much…
