Percy Harvin was at the center of the game plan for the Jets this Sunday. He caught 3 passes for 22 yards, ran 4 times for 28 yards, and returned 6 kicks for a 24.0 yard average. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Harvin saw 44 snaps in his first game as a Jet, a large number considering his lack of familiarity with the offense. The Jets fluctuating quarterback position will likely limit Harvin but his role as a runner and returner make him worth a roster spot.

Head Coach Rex Ryan stated that Percy Harvin will return kicks for the Jets going forward. When asked if Harvin could return punts, special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey did not rule the possibility out, stating that “I don’t have reservations about any of his skill sets. (Source: The New York Times)

Fantasy Impact: This would enhance Harvin's value in return bonus leagues, but curiously Harvin has not returned a punt yet in the NFL. Harvin is a WR3 with a possibility for advancement in New York, and is a player to keep an eye on as fantasy trade deadlines approach.

By Tom Woods, Jets Correspondent, Fri, Oct 24th 11:08am EDT

Percy Harvin’s role with the New York Jets on Sunday is shrouded in mystery. The newly acquired wide receiver could play a few snaps on offense. Or, a lot. He might play in the slot, on the outside running deep patterns or come out of the backfield. Or, all three. “He’s just getting himself sort of integrated right now, so we’ll see,” offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Thursday. “Let’s get to game day here. We’ve got another day and a half here. We’ll see exactly how he can integrate himself for us.” (Source: CBS New York)

Fantasy Impact: Although Harvin could be used a lot by New York on Sunday, it is probably best to err on the side of caution with the former Seahawks wide receiver. We are yet to see if he will settle into the new offensive system, and his definitive role in the team is still unknown. It would be wise to hold on to Harvin, but play it safe and see what you've got this week.

The Seahawks have unexpectedly traded WR Percy Harvin to the New York Jets for a conditional 2015 draft choice. The deal is being finalized at the time of this update. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: On a scale of 1 to Trent Richardson, this trade is Richardsonian on how out of left field it was. This puts Harvin's fantasy value into a state of flux, as his QB situation has been massively downgraded. In an unfortunate quirk, Harvin will now have 3 byes this season: Week 4 (with SEA), this week (the Jets played Thu night) and during the Jets regular bye (Week 11). Harvin is a WR3 going forward in standard/PPR leagues, un-startable in daily leagues, and has been downgraded in dynasty formats.

By Brian Tesch, Jets Correspondent, Fri, Oct 17th 1:12pm EDT

When asked about Percy Harvin, Offensive Coordinator Darrell Bevell stated "Well, we know he's got speed and we know he can go down the field with speed, he's got great quickness so we can use him in that. The test always is, is to make sure some of those guys get the ball in their hands." (Source: The Associated Press)

Fantasy Impact: Bevell was Harvin's coordinator in Minnesota for his first two seasons, so this remark rates pretty high on the coach-speak scale. Harvin currently leads the Seahawks in targets, but they are only coming at a depth of 1.1 yards down-field. 241 of Harvin's 303 career catches have come on throws of 10 yards or less, and 115 of those 241 have come on throws behind the line of scrimmage. Harvin could either make or break you in daily formats, and is a high end WR3/low end WR2 in standard leagues.

By Brian Tesch, Jets Correspondent, Tue, Oct 14th 9:54am EDT

Percy Harvin had a Week 6 to forget, as he posted a negative yardage total.

Fantasy Impact: Harvin however did have an impressive 46 yard kick-return, but otherwise was shut out. After a big first 2 weeks Harvin has fantasy managers wondering what happened, as he's posted 2 sub-40 yard performances in a row. Harvin has been used strictly as a gadget player, and has little value in fantasy unless he's either being used down-field, or receiving a ton of volume. Harvin is dropping in to WR3 territory, and is a dicey play in daily leagues.

ProFootballTalk.com reported WR Percy Harvin missed Thursday's practice, and was listed on the injury report for the first time this season with a thigh injury. (Source: ProFootballTalk.com)

Fantasy Impact: Harvin owners should be cautious with this news coming so late in the week. Continue to monitor Harvin's status up until game time Sunday afternoon. Doug Baldwin could be a deep sleeper should Harvin be inactive.

By Alex Christian, Jets Correspondent, Tue, Oct 7th 11:10am EDT

WR Percy Harvin had three touchdowns called back due to penalties in last night's 27-17 victory over the Redskins. He finished the night with 4 catches on 5 targets for 27 yards, and added 2 rushes for 7 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Owners of the WR had to think "what if" last night. However, Harvin's usage rate saw an increase with the absence of TE Zach Miller. Harvin's good health, added with his rapport with Russell Wilson should lead to many more multiple touchdown games. Let's hope this time they actually count.

By Michael White, Jets Correspondent, Wed, Oct 1st 2:42pm EDT

The Redskins have allowed 9 passing TDs in their last 4 home games and have been significantly better against the run than they have against the pass during the first quarter of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Although Harvin has been slightly disappointing to this point, owners should feel optimistic that they should receive some return on their investment this week. Washington has been one of the friendliest fantasy defenses through the air this season and has allowed the 7th most points to WRs so far. With a current position rank of a borderline WR3, FantasyPros consensus rankings place him as the #20 WR this week and he should be in most starting lineups. This is an important matchup for Harvin owners hoping they'll be able to trust the dynamic receiver against sub-par defenses, as the Seahawks' schedule opens up with multiple juicy matchups over the next couple of months.

The Redskins have allowed 9 passing TDs in their last 4 home games and has fared considerably better against the run than they have against the pass so far this season.

Fantasy Impact: Although Harvin has been slightly disappointing to this point, owners should feel optimistic that they should receive some return on their investment this week. Washington has been one of the friendliest fantasy defenses through the air this season and has allowed the 7th most points to WRs so far. With a current position rank of a borderline WR3, FantasyPros consensus rankings place him as the #20 WR this week and he should be in most starting lineups.

Washington has allowed 9 passing TDs in their last 4 home games and has fared much better against the run than they have against the pass through the first 4 weeks of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Although Harvin has been slightly disappointing so far this season, owners should be rewarded Monday night as the Seahawks face one of the friendliest fantasy defenses to QBs and WRs. Washington has allowed the second most fantasy points to WRs this year. With a position rank of a borderline WR3, FantasyPros consensus rankings put Harvin as the #20 wideout this week and he should be in most lineups. This matchup is likely to determine how much owners will be able to trust Harvin going forward, as the Seahawks schedule opens up with multiple juicy matchups throughout the next couple of months.

By Michael White, Jets Correspondent, Mon, Sep 22nd 11:58am EDT

Harvin finished with 7 receptions on 9 targets for only 42 yards in a 26-20 overtime win against Denver.

Fantasy Impact: After being teased in week one with a heavy workload, Harvin owners probably need to lower expectations after a second straight sub-par performance. Although he is a threat to score at any time and is one of the most explosive players in the league, his value to the Seattle offense greatly exceeds his value to fantasy owners. On numerous occasions he was used as a decoy as the Seahawks ran misdirection to the opposite side of where Harvin was moving in motion. He opens up the field for everyone else, but that doesn't help his owners. Until he starts making plays downfield, he is much more valuable in PPR formats and looks to be a borderline WR2 in standard formats so far.

Percy Harvin's day was highlighted by a 51 yard touchdown scamper (that should have been disallowed, as Harvin clearly stepped out of bounds) on a 1st quarter fly sweep. Percy gaveth, and he also tooketh away, as he fumbled a kick return, which led to a San Diego touchdown. On the day, Harvin totaled 50 yards on 2 rushes and 1 catch. (Source: The Seattle Times)

Fantasy Impact: It was a bizzare day for Harvin, as he burst out early, and then fizzled late (his second rush was stuffed for a 6 yard loss). In fact, Harvin was only used on 25 of 40 offensive snaps, less than Jermaine Kearse and Doug Baldwin. While his fantasy day was saved by the rushing touchdown, this was a game to forget for Harvin.

By Michael White, Jets Correspondent, Fri, Sep 5th 12:45am EDT

The Seahawks unleashed their new toy Thursday night as Seattle routed the Packers 36-16. Harvin was targeted 7 times for 7 catches and 59 yards and was handed the ball on the jet sweep and out of the backfield, receiving 4 carries for 41 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Harvin owners should have a big smile on their face after seeing how often the Seahawks got the ball into his hands. After unveiling the Jet sweep in the Super Bowl, it looks like it is here to stay. Interestingly, Harvin also shifted to the backfield out of an empty set more than once and received a carry on the run option. It certainly looks as though Harvin may have a chance to dominate PPR leagues the same way he did as a Viking. Another performance like this and Harvin owners may just have a must start WR on their roster that could end up as one of the best values in the league given were he was drafted.

After missing the final preseason game and some additional days to attend to a pesonal matter, Percy Harvin rejoined the team. (Source: The Tacoma News Tribune)

Fantasy Impact: This will not affect Harvin's role as a #1 WR and Kickoff Returner for the Seahawks when the take on the Packers Thursday. If you play in a league with a risk averse bunch, Harvin is going to be a great value. Harvin is being drafted as a WR2, but offers the upside of a low-end WR1. If Harvin can stay healthy in 2014, this is going to be the last year you can get him at this discounted price.

By Brian Tesch, Jets Correspondent, Sat, Aug 23rd 1:05am EDT

Percy Harvin took the first kick return for 46 yards, and caught all three of his targets, turning them into 46 yards.

Fantasy Impact: It looks as if Harvin will be Seattle's primary Kick Returner in 2014. On nearly all of his touches, Harvin forced missed tackles with his otherworldly agility. It seems the hip and head injuries that kept Harvin off the field during 2013 have had no lasting effects on Harvin, as he looks spry and slippery in 2014. While he wont get enough volume to be a week-to-week stud, expect some explosive games from Harvin this year, if he can stay healthy.

By Brian Tesch, Jets Correspondent, Wed, Aug 20th 1:20pm EDT

In the Seahawks 41-14 Week 2 win over the Chargers, Percy Harvin was targeted on 5 of Russell Wilson's 13 attempts. (Source: Fieldgulls.com)

Fantasy Impact: Harvin turned those 5 targets into 4 catches for 31 yards. Most of the targets were short passes, as his longest catch was for 11 yards. Harvin ran crisp routes and looked agile, displaying impressive timing with Russell Wilson. Harvin's presence on the field caused the Chargers to shade a safety Harvin's way, allowing TE Zach Miller to get wide open for a 37 yard gain. Harvin offers low-end WR1 upside in all leagues, and could be a bonafied WR1 in PPR formats, but he carries with him a monumental injury risk. If Harvin performs like he did against the Chargers for 16 games, you'll be crazy like a fox for drafting him.

By Brian Tesch, Jets Correspondent, Thu, Aug 14th 1:15pm EDT

When asked about Percy Harvin, Quarterback Russell Wilson stated “To have Percy for an entire training camp has really helped a lot,” Wilson said. “Our connection, as you guys probably saw today, we made a lot of plays doing a lot of great things, same with the other receivers too, as well. Our receiver position is looking very, very good right now, catching the ball extremely well. So to have Percy out there and his explosiveness, his tough mentality is great.” (Source: The Seattle Times)

Fantasy Impact: Remember that Harvin went down with a hip injury very early during training camp in 2013, and was only active for 1 game prior to the post-season. Wilson and Harvin have not had nearly enough time to develop a connection, and Harvin's return to health can only help their chemistry. It seems the Seahawks have decided to limit Harvin's snaps in the preseason, so we wont see this improved chemistry until week 1 at the earliest. Harvin is an intriguing option for fantasy owners who embrace risk.

By Jordan Coover, Jets Correspondent, Thu, Aug 14th 2:51am EDT

"The most impressive aspect about Harvin is that he participated – fully and impressively – from the first practice on July 25 to the 13th practice on Wednesday." (seahawks.com) (Source: seahawks.com)

Fantasy Impact: As training camp ended today Percy Harvin was the unanimous selection for Seahawks camp MVP. This bodes well for the Seattle Seahawks, and fantasy owners alike. Currently he is being ranked on average as the 23rd wide receiver by fantasy experts this season. (fantasypros.com) If he truly is as healthy as he looks this year, you could be getting a top-10 wide receiver talent at a very discounted price. The injury history will scare most people away and I am here to tell you that this is the year you buy into Percy Harvin. The Seahawks know that Harvin might possibly be the most talented player on their entire roster, and they will find creative ways to get the ball into his hands. On three offensive touches in the Super Bowl he had 50 total yards. Then there was his 87-yard kick return touchdown where he just outran the whole Broncos return team. Those are the type of results you get when Harvin touches the ball. Draft him this year with high confidence and you could be riding him to a fantasy championship.

Fantasy Impact: Harvin had an adverse reaction to having his heel stepped on, and was only out for a couple of minutes.Needless to say, anytime the historically injury-prone Harvin leaves the field, fantasy owners hold their collective breath.

By Brian Tesch, Jets Correspondent, Sun, Aug 10th 6:03pm EDT

According to official snap count reports, Percy Harvin was only on the field for one offensive snap, and did not return kicks in the opening preseason game against the Broncos. (Source: The Seattle Times)

Fantasy Impact: it looks like the Seahawks understand the duality of Harvin: as he has truly unique ability, and a lengthy injury history. Harvin is currently being drafted as a low end WR2, just low enough to potentially deliver huge value, but just high enough to be a huge risk. Look for Harvin to continue to be a polarizing player in fantasy drafts.

By Jordan Melchiorre, Jets Correspondent, Sat, Aug 9th 8:49am EDT

Danny Kelly, editor-in-chief and lead writer at FieldGulls.com, said that Percy Harvin's 'been electrifying and has made a big play just about everyday at camp". (Source: SB Nation Mile High Report)

Fantasy Impact: Percy Harvin's combination of speed and vision make him borderline unstoppable when he can stay healthy, as he was in 2011. Harvin had 1312 total yards from scrimmage that year, on 87 receptions and 52 rushing attempts. That means he was good for over 9 yards a touch, which doesn't include the 520 yards he gained on return yards. The news that he is showing signs of his freakish potential is great news for owners and makes him well worth the health risk.

By Michael White, Jets Correspondent, Wed, Jul 30th 7:37pm EDT

The Seahawks unleashed Percy Harvin in a new way during Super Bowl 48, introducing the world to their version of the fly sweep. Multiple local beat writers have already taken note of it's effectiveness so far during camp. (Source: SeattleTimes.com)

Fantasy Impact: After compiling over 1800 rushing yards in his 3 year career as a Florida Gator, Harvin averaged nearly 3 carries a game during his last 3 years with the Vikings. Alongside plays like bubble and smoke screens, owners should see Harvin touch the ball quite frequently in 2014. Seattle barely got a chance to pull it's new Ferrari out of the garage last season, so fantasy owners should expect them to take it out often and open it up full throttle this time around. The risk-averse may shy away, but savvy owners that realize Harvin's nearly unlimited potential should benefit greatly from taking him earlier than his current ADP as a low end WR2 would suggest, and should be rewarded for their foresight.

By Brian Tesch, Jets Correspondent, Sat, Jul 26th 2:20pm EDT

Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports that WR Percy Harvin is "in the mix" for punt return duties. (Source: The Seattle Times)

Fantasy Impact: While Harvin has proven himself to be a dynamo of a kick-returner, he has not fielded a punt return in a game since high-school. While no one doubts Harvin's electricity in the open field would generate some highlight-reel returns, fantasy owners are better off having the majority of Harvin's touches come on offense. If Harvin were to win the job it would be a mixed blessing, while the potential exists for an additional return touchdown or two; return duties would put the historically brittle Harvin on the field in situations where he is more likely to be injured than produce fantasy points. While those in return yardage leagues need to monitor this situation because of the possibility for even more scoring from Harvin, standard league drafters should hope that someone else steps in and takes the job.

Having missed all but 68 plays for the defending World Champions last season, Percy Harvin told ESPN 710 Seattle that he is fully healthy and ready for a big year on day one of Seahawks training camp. (Source: ESPN 710 Seattle)

Fantasy Impact: Anyone that watched the Super Bowl knows how explosive Percy Harvin can be. The fact that he is now healthy, along with the development of Russell Wilson, the addition of more offensive weapons, and the evolution of Darell Bevell's playbook, should have fantasy owners drooling over the prospects of drafting one of the truly great playmakers in the NFL. Considering how many inventive ways the Seahawks will be able to use Harvin's unique skillset, his current ADP as the 22nd receiver coming off the board seems like a steal. Draft him as a WR2 and you may very well be rewarded with WR1 production.
