Percy Harvin | WR | New York Jets
Posted: 10/18/2014 9:20am et
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?

Posted: 8/12/2014 4:24pm et
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.

Posted: 6/12/2014 11:29pm et
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.

Posted: 1/28/2014 3:10am et
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.

Posted: 1/23/2014 11:54pm et
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.

Posted: 1/16/2014 6:09pm et
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.

Posted: 12/18/2013 10:54pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Harvin is done for the regular season and has no fantasy value until 2014.

Posted: 12/18/2013 11:34am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) is expected to be out until at least the playoffs.
Huddle Up: Harvin made a cameo appearance against his former team a couple weeks back, but if he makes an impact with the Seahawks at all this year it will have to come in the postseason.

Posted: 12/17/2013 10:24pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the team will re-evaluate WR Percy Harvin (hip) heading into the team's Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: Hopefully by now you're not counting on any meaningful production out of Harvin for the remainder of the regular season.

Posted: 12/13/2013 8:11pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and has been ruled out for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Harvin is likely done for 2013 and now only has fantasy relevance in dynasty leagues.

Posted: 12/11/2013 10:13pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Harvin is likely out for the remainder of the regular season and off the fantasy radar until 2014.

Posted: 12/10/2013 12:10am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) is listed as day-to-day. 'We'll find out Wednesday if he can go,' head coach Pete Carroll said on Harvin.
Huddle Up: Harvin has missed the last 2 games after his hip flared up, and he remains a risky fantasy proposition at best.

Posted: 12/6/2013 4:10pm et
The Seattle Seahawks officially ruled WR Percy Harvin (hip) out for Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers. Harvin did some running drills before practice earlier this week but hasn't practiced since Week 12.
Huddle Up: Be very wary of having Harvin available the rest of the regular season after it was revealed that he underwent a "little" procedure on his surgically repaired hip last week.

Posted: 12/4/2013 10:14pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Harvin could miss the remainder of the regular season. Owners who stashed Harvin shouldn't expect him to contribute during fantasy playoffs.

Posted: 12/4/2013 12:16am et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) 'had a little procedure last week' after his hip injury flared up. He was inactive for Seattle's Monday night win over the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: This "little" procedure should be considered a big deal by Harvin's fantasy owners as it raises some serious questions about the WR's availability for the remainder of the regular season.

Posted: 12/2/2013 8:16pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) is active Monday, Dec. 2 for the team's game against the New Orleans Saints. The Seahawks are waiting to see how Harvin responds to cortisone injections. Holding him out for the remainder of the regular season is a real option, hoping to get him healthy for the playoffs.
Huddle Up: There was always a risk, of course, in relying on a player coming off surgery in the same season, but this nonetheless throws an untimely curveball at fantasy GMs who were banking on having Harvin available for the fantasy playoffs. The WR's availability looks like a week-to-week proposition, but at 10-1 entering Monday night's game, the Seahawks obviously are focusing on the long term, rather than the short term.

Posted: 12/2/2013 2:31pm et
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) doesn't expect to play in the team's Week 13 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Dec. 2, after receiving a cortisone injection in his surgically repaired hip over the weekend.
Huddle Up: In case you were hoping he would go tonight, here is an update. Again, this doesn't bode well for next week and beyond either, but keep an eye on Harvin's hip this week.

Posted: 12/2/2013 12:25pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) received a cortisone injection in his surgically repaired hip over the weekend.
Huddle Up: This does not bode well for him the rest of the way.

Posted: 11/30/2013 7:42pm et
Updating an earlier report, Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) has been downgraded to doubtful for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Harvin suffered a setback to his hip injury and almost certainly won't play on Monday night against the Saints. His availability for fantasy playoffs could now be in jeopardy.

Posted: 11/25/2013 2:08pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he expects WR Percy Harvin (hip) to fully participate in practice this week.
Huddle Up: This is excellent news if you have been holding onto him all this time. He should get into your lineup.

Posted: 11/18/2013 8:16pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) will not be limited in the offense moving forward and will be used as a kick returner.
Huddle Up: Harvin got a taste of action Sunday and now with the Hawks' Week 12 bye, he has 15 days to prep for Seattle's next contest -- a crucial Week 13 Monday Night Football showdown against the Saints.

Posted: 11/15/2013 9:03pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) practiced Friday, Nov. 15, and expects to play in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. 'I definitely think I'm ready to play,' Harvin said. 'I still have a lot of work to do, but it was great to be out there with my teammates running plays and going to the huddle. Hopefully everything goes well (Saturday) and I can look forward to the game.' He is officially listed as probable, but head coach Pete Carroll said a final decision will be made on Harvin Saturday, Nov. 16. Carroll is unlikely to use Harvin for kickoffs if he plays.
Huddle Up: Harvin will likely be on a snap count, so even though he has a great match-up against Minnesota, owners should probably leave Harvin on the bench until he has a game under his belt.

Posted: 11/15/2013 12:00am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 14, for the first time since having hip surgery Aug. 1. It's looking more likely that he'll make his season debut in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings, his former team. 'He's in and out of his breaks really quickly,' QB Russell Wilson said. 'He's just a great football player. You want to give him the ball as much as you can. On our offense, we have so many guys that we can use. You add Percy into the mix and he brings a whole other explosive mentality to our football team.'
Huddle Up: Again, Harvin may play, but don't expect a lot of PT right out of the gate. It wouldn't be a total shocker, though, if the Hawks try to get him a TD against his ex-team.

Posted: 11/11/2013 8:11pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll isn't ready to declare WR Percy Harvin (hip) a go for Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. 'He's going after it this week and we'll see how far we can take it,' Carroll said of Harvin. 'We'll call this Phase 3. We also have a chance to have all three (starting offensive linemen) back and Percy just adds to it.' Carroll said Harvin must practice every day this week in order to suit up this weekend.
Huddle Up: Being activated was only one step for Harvin, and his fantasy owners anxious to get him in the lineup will have to monitor practice reports coming out of the Northwest this week. Even if he does play Sunday, though, expect a limited role for the wideout right out of the gate.

Posted: 11/11/2013 5:39pm et
The Seattle Seahawks have activated WR Percy Harvin (hip) from the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: Don't get too excited—he could be limited in his first game action of the season—but he does have a nice matchup, and it's against the Vikings to boot. Revenge is a dish best served in Week 11 of the 2013 season?

Posted: 11/6/2013 5:00pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) had a great workout Wednesday, Nov. 6, but he won't practice with the team. Head coach Pete Carroll said Harvin is in Phase 2 of his rehab.
Huddle Up: It seems Harvin might not be back just yet. Monitor his status throughout the week.

Posted: 11/1/2013 8:29pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) underwent an MRI this week but it did not show any problems. Carroll said Harvin was sore from the practices last week.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks are still hoping Harvin can return in the next couple of weeks. Fantasy owners should hang onto him for the stretch run.

Posted: 11/1/2013 1:55pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that WR Percy Harvin (hip) will not play in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 'Percy won't play this week,' Carroll said. 'He's getting close, but not close enough.' The team has two weeks to activate Harvin from the Physically Unable to Perform list. WR Jermaine Kearse will start this weekend.
Huddle Up: At 7-1, the Seahawks have no need to rush Harvin back into actio. Meanwhile, his fantasy owners have waited this long, so what's another week or 2?

Posted: 10/29/2013 7:39pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll labeled WR Percy Harvin (hip) 'day-to-day,' and the team is unsure if he can make his debut in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: With Sidney Rice reportedly out for the season with a torn ACL, the 'Hawks could use Harvin more than ever. The rehabbing wideout, however, had a minor setback this past week when his surgically-repaired hip flared up in workouts, but indications still point toward a return in the next week or so.

Posted: 10/26/2013 5:05pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) won't play in Week 8.
Huddle Up: There were reports that Harvin could return this week but that would have been a best-case scenario. Still, it's looking like Harvin will back in the Seahawks' lineup some time in the next couple of weeks.
