Coach Rex Ryan implied that Harvin (thigh) will be involved in only limited play sets this week, reports. Said Ryan, "I think that’s realistic. It’s awful hard to come in and, ‘Oh by the way here’s the offense. Learn it in a week.’ I don’t know if that’s realistic. But we’ll have some plays for him and get him back there to return a kick and things like that.”

Percy Harvin: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

The Seahawks agreed to trade Harvin (thigh) to the Jets on Friday in exchange for a conditional draft pick, FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

It's a surprising development, but one that would make sense for one or both teams depending on the compensation involved. Harvin only played 59.5 percent of Seattle's snaps this year -- nearly 30 percent less than both Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse -- and Harvin doesn't have the blocking skills a run-heavy offense like Seattle's would ideally feature at receiver. If the Seahawks look to replace Harvin's speed on offense, they might look to rookie second-round pick Paul Richardson. While the inconsistent Jets offense isn't an ideal setting for Harvin's fantasy value, he might see an increase in his play count, which will hopefully offset any efficiency decreases. Harvin's arrival should allow the Jets to generate more yardage and points if used properly.
Harvin did not practice Thursday due to a thigh injury, the Seahawks' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Harvin missed practice Wednesday as well, but that absence was not listed as injury-related. The fact that Thursday's missed practice was attributed to his thigh injury is obviously more concerning, though there is still a chance that Seattle is simply giving him some extra rest as they did last week. Friday's final injury designations should provide some more information about Harvin's status for Week 7.

Harvin (thigh) is probable for Sunday's game against Dallas, Sports Radio KJR's Curtis Crabtree reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Harvin didn't practice Thursday, but rest evidently had something to do with that. One could argue that Harvin is due for some good luck after having three touchdowns called back against Washington on Monday, and Russell Wilson's high passing efficiency in home games gives reason to hope for a nice game from Harvin. He's averaging just 6.1 yards per target and has received just 22 targets through four games, however, so he seems a bit like a boom-or-bust sort of player for the time being.
Harvin (thigh) did not practice Thursday, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Harvin's addition to the injury report clouds his Week 6 status, though the extent of the thigh issue is uncertain. Regardless, it intensifies the frustration of his fantasy owners, after Harvin had three touchdowns wiped out by penalty last week. We'll revisit his status after Friday's practice, but if Harvin is unable to go, Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kerse would likely serve as the top targets against Dallas.
Harvin caught 4-of-5 targets for 27 yards, while adding seven yards on two carries, in Monday's 27-17 win over the Redskins. He had three potential touchdowns nullified by penalties.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

Harvin, who is coming off hip surgery, will start the season on the Seahawks' PUP list. While the move does not come accompanied by a timetable for Harvin's return, the designation does leave open the possibility that Harvin could contribute to the Seattle offense at some point during the coming season. In any case, he is officially ruled out for the team's first six games.


Dogged by character concerns and migraine headaches in years past, Harvin turned in the best fantasy season of his career in 2011, playing all 16 games and amassing 967 receiving yards, 345 rushing yards and nine total touchdowns (if you include kick returns). In terms of efficiency, Harvin dropped to a career-low 7.9 YPT, but we wouldn’t make much of that as he was paired with a washed-up Donovan McNabb and rookie Christian Ponder. Ponder should improve with a full training camp as a starter, and Harvin returns as his clear No. 1 target in the passing game. In fact, coach Leslie Frazier wants to get Harvin on the field for more than the 59 percent of snaps he’s seen the last two years. But Harvin will have to prove he can stay healthy and focused with an increased workload. At 5-11, 195, Harvin’s not big, but he’s fast, extremely quick in open space and tough to bring down. Harvin’s also got great hands – just seven drops over the last two seasons combined. Harvin doesn’t run a lot of downfield routes – usually catching short balls and creating his own opportunities after the catch – and he doesn’t see a lot of work in the red zone (just nine targets). But that could change this year if Ponder takes the next step with Harvin as his lead dog in the receiving corps. Even if it doesn’t, don’t forget to give Harvin a nice boost on account of his rushing stats. Harvin had arthroscopic surgery in late April to repair damage to the AC joint in his shoulder, but is expected to be 100 percent healthy well before the start of training camp.


Were it not for the recurring migraine headaches, Harvin would profile as a top-15 receiver. Despite playing with a diminished Brett Favre, Tarvaris Jackson and Joe Webb, Harvin had 868 receiving yards and 107 yards on the ground. He scored six touchdowns from scrimmage and another on a kick return – all in 14 games. At 5-11, 195, Harvin isn't big, but he's a tremendous athlete, incredibly elusive in the open field, has great hands (only four drops) and is capable of breaking tackles. In fact, Harvin was second in the league with 459 yards after the catch on just 109 targets. With Sidney Rice and Tavaris Jackson off to Seattle, Harvin becomes the team's No. 1 wideout with Donovan McNabb as his new quarterback. Interestingly, Harvin catches mostly short balls and does most of the work on his own after the catch, which isn't exactly how McNabb likes to play. In addition, there's the issue of the migraines that cost him two games last year and constantly render him a game-time decision, something that's hard on fantasy owners from a planning standpoint. It's impossible to say whether the condition will improve or get worse, but it's plagued him for years – even in college – and is simply part of his risk profile.


Of all the Vikings receivers, Harvin is probably the least reliant on Brett Favre’s return to retain his 2009 value. Harvin had an outstanding rookie year, averaging 8.7 yards per target and hauling in 66 percent of the passes thrown his way. He also managed three receptions of 40-plus on just 91 targets and led all wide receivers with 25 broken tackles — (Wes Welker was a distant second with 16). At 5-11, 202 (after putting on some muscle this offseason), Harvin’s greatest assets are his electrifying quickness and deep speed. He’s incredibly elusive in the open field, and can change directions on a dime. While Brett Favre threw the ball to everyone in the red zone, Sidney Rice and Visante Shiancoe were his first looks there, so a more run-first offense around the goal line in Favre’s absence would hurt Harvin least. Moreover, Harvin can “create his own shot” so to speak, so his explosiveness doesn’t depend on a premier assist man. Harvin also adds value as a runner out of the backfield — last year he had 15 carries for 135 yards, a rare bonus from a wide-receiver. One concern is Harvin’s propensity to suffer severe migraine headaches. The migraines cost him one game last season, and despite working out and staying in great shape, they’ve been plaguing him this offseason as well.


Here's your Blue Plate Special boom-or-bust pick. For those willing to overlook his perceived character flaws and propensity to get dinged up, there's an exciting playmaker with game-breaking potential. If all goes well, the Vikings have added a player with a Steve Smith (CAR) ceiling, but it may be a while before that's something fantasy owners can count on, so draft him for his floor, which is more in line with Devin Hester, the receiver.
