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.
