Britt signed a two-year contract worth up about $14 million Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Britt's deal includes $4.3 million of guaranteed money, likely keeping him with the Rams for at least the next two seasons. He led the Rams with 748 receiving yards and finishing second in receptions (48). His output on a one-year deal has awarded him a second, more lucrative contract. He will head into 2015 with more stable footing, but will need to get acquainted with a new quarterback, as the Rams dealt Sam Bradford for Nick Foles in the offseason. However, Bradford missed most of last season, leaving Austin Davis and Shaun Hill to take the duties under center. If Foles can come anywhere close to replicating his production with the Eagles over the past two seasons, it could result in better numbers for Britt in 2015.

Britt has signed a two-year deal with the Rams, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Britt was the most solid receiver for St. Louis last season, with nearly 50 receptions and 750 yards. He should also have a more reliable quarterback in Nick Foles this year as well, which could lead to an even better fantasy year for Britt.

Britt finished the season with 48 receptions for 748 yards and three touchdowns.

For a $1.4 million deal in the offseason, the Rams received a pretty good year out of Britt, leading the team in receiving yards by more than 140 yards. Most importantly, he stayed out of trouble off the field, remained healthy and became a leader in the locker room. He also didn't lose a fumble, and if he can get a stable quarterback situation next year, could continue to get back to the potential he had when drafted in the first round back in 2009.

Britt was targeted a team-high 11 times in Sunday's 37-27 loss to the Giants, racking up nine catches for 103 yards.

Britt surpassed 70 receiving yards in a game for just the second time all season. He's been inconsistent all season and will likely have a tough time approaching this type of production next week against Seattle.

Britt caught 5-of-9 targets for 65 yards in Thursday's 12-6 loss to the Cardinals.

Britt topped seven targets for the first time this season, and he hit the 60-yard mark for just the fourth time. While he and Stedman Bailey are getting approximately the same number of looks, Bailey is the better option for the final two weeks of the season, though still a very risky play.

Britt caught two passes on five targets for 52 yards during Sunday's 24-0 win over Washington.

After his big four-catch, 128-yard, one-touchdown performance in Week 11 against the Broncos, Britt has caught only five passes on 12 targets for 102 yards and no scores in his last three games combined. On the plus side, he's got a Week 15 matchup against a Cardinals defense that is allowing the sixth-most passing yards per game this season, though they held Britt to only 31 yards back in Week 10.

Britt (back) had one catch on one target for 13 yards Sunday against the Raiders.

After catching four passes on seven targets for 128 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Broncos, Britt has caught three passes on seven targets for 50 yards in his last two games combined. Not coincidentally, fellow wideout Stedman Bailey has posted the two best games of his career during that span, catching 12 passes on 15 targets for 189 yards and a touchdown. While Britt has the weapons to make a fantasy impact any week, he's just too inconsistent to rely upon in most fantasy formats.

Britt (back) is listed as active for Sunday's game against Oakland, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Britt's yardage output has been sporadic this season, but he has scored twice in his last four games and is averaging six targets over his last three outings, so he has a chance to provide his owners with some production Sunday against the 1-10 Raiders.

Britt (back) is probable for Sunday's game against Oakland.

Britt practiced fully Thursday and Friday after missing Wednesday's practice, so his health isn't in any question. Britt is the clear leader at receiver for the Rams at the moment, but the weak volume of the St. Louis passing game leaves him a hit-or-miss fantasy prospect in most formats.

Britt (back) practiced fully Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Britt manages nearly five targets per game, no matter who is under center, and his output during the past five contests (13 receptions for 280 yards and two touchdowns) has certainly been of use in certain formats. However, his Week 13 opponent, the Raiders, have been stingy against wide receivers over the last four games, allowing 9.5 YPC and three touchdown catches to the position.
