New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, but barring a setback, he's expected to play in Week 16 against the New England Patriots. Harvin suffered a third-degree ankle sprain just two weeks ago, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Harvin was limited to a special teams role last week.
Huddle Up: Harvin had a season-best 6-124-1 performance in his last healthy outing in Week 14 and his presence is key for the Jets and prevents the Patriots from focusing on WR Eric Decker.

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 11, but is catching passes from a JUGS machine.
Huddle Up: Following his best outing of the season (6-124-1), Harvin has yet to practice this week and remains a longshot to play Sunday in Tennessee.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Percy Harvin has been diagnosed with a low-ankle sprain. Head coach Rex Ryan said it is not looking good for Harvin to play in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Tough timing for Harvin and the Jets as the WR is coming off his best fantasy day (6-124-1) of the season.

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) injured his left ankle late in the game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Dec. 7, and he may be out for the remainder of the season pending further tests. Harvin, who left the stadium on crutches, caught six passes for 124 yards against the Vikings.
Huddle Up: Harvin hurt? In other breaking news, taxes are high and the sun came up in the east this morning. Percy was going off against his former team prior to the injury, but it should come as no shock that with high volume usage comes the propensity for the hard-playing yet extremely brittle Harvin to suffer yet another injury.

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin played 44 of 84 snaps in his debut with the team in Week 8, lining up in the backfield and running some deep routes. The Jets are making it a point to immediately get the ball into his hands.
Huddle Up: The Jets won't wait to get Harvin involved. Their season is in shambles and they don't have many playmakers on offense. Expect Harvin to be a big part of the Jets offense going forward.

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin is onto his third NFL team, and he looks for more success than with the Seattle Seahawks. In Minnesota, he averaged 7.3 targets per game with 61.2 receiving yards per game and 34.2 yards per game after the catch (YAC). He ranked sixth in YAC. In Seattle, he managed just 4.5 targets per game, with only 25.0 receiving yards per game, 17.0 yards per catch and he ranked 99th in the league in YAC.
Huddle Up: Multiple reports are now surfacing that suggest Harvin's "anger management issues" led to his trade to the Jets. Only time will tell if being shipped off to his third team will result in any personal growth in that area. Maybe playing under a Rex Ryan regime will help, maybe not. At a minimum his talent on the field should be a benefit to QB Geno Smith and the Jets offense.

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin was traded by the Seattle Seahawks in part because he had anger issues while with the Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Reports say Seattle had been trying to trade Harvin for weeks now. It's a stunning turnaround for a player the Seahawks gave up first, third and seventh round picks to acquire. Seattle will save over $6 million in cap space this year by trading Harvin.

The New York Jets acquired WR Percy Harvin from the Seattle Seahawks on Friday, Oct. 17, for a conditional draft pick.
Huddle Up: A stunning deal of sorts -- especially coming on a Friday 2 days before Seattle plays in St. Louis. Harvin has struggled as a receiver this season with 22 catches for 133 yards and no TDs this , but his 11-92-1 rushing numbers have bumped up his fantasy bottom line. He might get more work on the playmaker-needy Jets, but certainly his new surrounding cast is a downgrade. Meanwhile, it is a loss for the Seattle offense, which will now rely more on WRs Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, Ricardo Lockette and TEs Zach Miller and Luke Willson.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (thigh) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 16, but he did not mention an injury when he spoke with reporters in the locker room.
Huddle Up: Red flags are flying in the Pacific Northwest with Harvin missing his second straight practice. See if he's able to get on the field in the always important Friday workout.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin had three touchdowns called back because of penalties Monday, Oct. 6. He finished the game with four catches for 27 yards and two carries for seven yards.
Huddle Up: Absolutely crushing night for Harvin's fantasy owners who were left with all of 3.4 points in standard-scoring formats. Chalk it up as excessive punishment from the fantasy gods, who more than made up for Harvin's 51-yard Week 2 scoring run in San Diego that shouldn't have counted with officials missing the WR stepping out of bounds en route to the end zone.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin caught seven passes for 59 yards and also carried the ball four times for 41 rushing yards, and he returned three kickoffs for a total of 60 yards. 'They can't stop him,' said LB Bobby Wagner. 'They can't tackle him. He's too fast to catch him. He's just a great player when he's healthy.'
Huddle Up: The only thing Harvin didn't do was find a way into the end zone, but his all-around performance reiterated that he's a must-fantasy start when he's expected to start. Period.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin said he feels as well as he has since his college days. 'I definitely feel a lot better,' Harvin said. 'I've got a lot more motion than I'm used to having. I can do a lot more cuts and just a lot of different motions that I wasn't able to do before.'
Huddle Up: We've seen, albeit briefly, what a healthy Harvin can do. If he's able to stay on the field for a full 16 games he'll outperform whatever his draft position is; the question is, how can a guy who plays as hard as he does with the injury track record he has manage to avoid injury?

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (undisclosed) returned to practice after leaving for an undisclosed injury Tuesday, Aug. 12.
Huddle Up: Sounds like all is OK with Harvin getting right back into action but keep an eye out for any updates.

Posted: 7/15/2014 3:07am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin is penciled in to return kickoffs.
Huddle Up: Additional value for Harvin in leagues that reward return yards and touchdowns--at least for the six to eight games Harvin actually makes it to the field.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin is happy to be taking part in voluntary workouts after missing most of last season recovering from hip surgery. Being able to take part in offseason activities is allowing Harvin to become fully integrated in the team's offense.
Huddle Up: Harvin definitely still has the all-around skills to contribute in a variety of ways, but will the recency of his lasting 2013 impression (his impressive Super Bowl showing) cause him to be over-drafted in a number of leagues?

Posted: 6/4/2014 12:48am et
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is impressed with the speed of the team's receiving corps, especially thanks to the addition of WR Paul Richardson, who the team drafted this year. "Yeah, our receivers right now are as fast as it gets. You've got Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse is extremely fast too. Then you add Paul Richardson who you saw today went for that deep, deep ball that I threw to him. He's looking exceptional as well. So I think our receiver group is probably one of the faster in the league right now, based on who we have."
Huddle Up: No one is questioning the Seattle wideouts' play-making ability -- particularly if Harvin regains his health -- but will the 'Hawks throw enough to flush out the fantasy numbers after ranking second-to-last in the league this past season with 420 passing attempts and 26th overall with 3,236 yards? Even if they do, will the WRs all canniabalize off each other, keeping everyone's fantasy prospects down across the board? Bottom line: There are definitely some big unknowns to handicap when assessing the Seattle passing game.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin is fine after dealing with a concussion, and is going to be used all over the field in the Super Bowl.
Huddle Up: It's taken until the final game of the season, but it looks like we might finally a healthy dose of Harvin, who likely will return kicks, catch passes and even take a few handoffs on rushing plays.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Monday, Jan. 27, that WR Percy Harvin (concussion) had another good day during the team's walkthrough, and he is on course to play and be a full-go in Super Bowl XLVIII against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Feb. 2.
Huddle Up: A healthy Harvin gives the Seattle passing game another element, one certainly more dynamic than Russell Wilson's current crop of receivers.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin has passed his concussion tests and has been cleared to play in Super Bowl XLVIII.
Huddle Up: As expected, Harvin has received the green light, and now it's the Broncos' concern on what to expect from the multi-talented wideout, who has had only 6 total touches (4 receptions, 1 rush, 1 kickoff return) in 2 games with the 'Hawks this season.

Posted: 1/23/2014 1:46pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (concussion) still must be cleared to play in Super Bowl XLVIII, but head coach Pete Carroll is optimistic and said that Harvin 'should be fine' against the Denver Broncos. He practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 22.
Huddle Up: Harvin will have had 3 weeks to recover by the time Super Sunday rolls around, and his presence will be a major wild card for the Broncos' D and special teams to deal with as Harvin simply hasn't played enough this season for the opposition to get a game-plan gauge on him.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (concussion) is not participating in practice Thursday, Jan. 16.
Huddle Up: Harvin is making his way through the league's concussion protocol, and he has to be considered a longshot to play Sunday at this point.

Posted: 1/14/2014 1:23pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Monday, Jan. 13, that WR Percy Harvin (concussion, hip) made it through the NFC Divisional game against the New Orleans Saints fine, as far as his hip is concerned. 'Way ahead of the game on that,' Carroll said. The concussion Harvin suffered during the game is the issue now.
Huddle Up: As if Harvin needed more hurdles to clear, now comes the concussion protocol this week and there will be no shortcuts permitted with the league monitoring these situations closer than ever.

Posted: 1/12/2014 12:35pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin will have to go through the concussion protocol before being cleared to play further in the postseason.
Huddle Up: It was a rough return for Harvin,who was involved early (3-21 receiving, 1-9 rushing) in Saturday's divisional-round win over the New Orleans Saints before leaving with a concussion. Going forward, you know the drill as the WR will have clear the league-mandated hurdles.

Posted: 1/9/2014 12:48pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 8, increasing the chances that he'll play in the divisional round against the New Orleans Saints this weekend. It's the first time he's been a full participant in practice this year.
Huddle Up: Keep tabs on how Harvin follows up on Thursday and Friday, but at this point, expect him to at least have a limited kick return/wide receiver role Saturday against the Saints.

Posted: 1/4/2014 10:41pm et
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) participated fully in practice Friday, Jan. 3, except for the two-minute drill. He reportedly looked good, and is considered day to day heading into next week.
Huddle Up: Getting Harvin back would be a huge bonus for the Seahawks, who have done just fine without him but would become multifaceted offensively if he's able to play. That he went full a week early has to be considered a positive sign for his availability in the Seahawks' playoff opener next week.

The Seattle Seahawks won't put WR Percy Harvin (hip) on the season-ending Injured Reserve after he had an encouraging workout Monday, Dec. 30, according to sources. The sources said Harvin looked 'amazing' during the throwing session with QB Russell Wilson, and the team thinks Harvin could play when the team has its first playoff game Jan. 11. Harvin is expected to rejoin practice with the team Thursday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Go ahead and stash Harvin at the end of your playoff fantasy roster. Hope it works out better than it did for those who stashed Harvin at the end of their regular season fantasy roster.

Posted: 12/31/2013 11:27am et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) will participate in practice this week.
Huddle Up: Harvin has teased us before, but at least the Seahawks are saying there's a chance he could play this postseason.

Posted: 12/24/2013 10:54pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) might not play again until next season. Carroll said there is a chance Harvin is placed on the Injured Reserve.
Huddle Up: That certainly would be no surprise after the WR has been unable to practice or play since his limited work in Week 11.

Posted: 12/23/2013 3:46pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said there is no update on WR Percy Harvin (hip), and the team does not know if he will be able to practice Wednesday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like Harvin will be back this week, but there is a long shot. We're not sure you should trust him even if he does play.
