Buffalo Bills WR Percy Harvin said his best football hasn't been played yet. "The world has yet to see me really explode like I'm about to [in Buffalo]," said Harvin, who added that he was excited to come to the Bills because of head coach Rex Ryan and Harvin's counterparts. "Coming here was so important to me. When I look at the running game and I looked at Sammy Watkins on the other side, me on the other side with Robert Woods, it spelled nothing but success for me."
Huddle Up: Harvin undoubtedly adds punch to the Bills' offense, but don't go expecting huge fantasy numbers as he only averaged 6.4 touches per game in eight contests with Ryan and the Jets last season and now joins a Buffalo team with more weapons/mouths to feed.

Free-agent WR Percy Harvin's (Jets) deal with the Buffalo Bills isn't done, and the San Francisco 49ers could be making a play for him, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Niners have added FA wideout Torrey Smith but could use another WR as the depth chart thins out quickly behind Smith and fellow projected starter Anquan Boldin.

Free-agent WR Percy Harvin (Jets) has agreed to terms with the Buffalo Bills on a one-year deal, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: The multi-dimensional Harvin looks as if he's found his fourth NFL home in the last four seasons, following coach Rex Ryan to Buffalo where he'll pair up with second-year receiver Sammy Watkins and newly acquired RB LeSean McCoy to give the Bills' offense some play-making punch. Harvin had a combined 51 catches for 483 yards and a TD and 33 rushes for 202 yards and another score with the Jets and Seahawks this past season.

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin was officially released Tuesday, March 10. The Seattle Seahawks received a sixth-round pick from the Jets as a result. The Jets would've had to surrender a fourth-round pick if they had kept Harvin on the roster until March 19. The Jets saved $10.5 million on the salary cap by releasing Harvin.
Huddle Up: So the N.Y. Jet chapter is officially closed on Harvin, who contributed 29 receptions and 22 rushes for 460 yards and one TD in eight games last season. It remains up in the air as to where the multi-dimensional Harvin's fourth NFL stop might be, and one possible rumored destination is New England. Stay tuned ...

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin may make perfect sense for the Oakland Raiders, with Harvin expected to be released by the Jets. Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave maximized Harvin's talent with the Minnesota Vikings in 2012.
Huddle Up: The talent-deficient Raiders are seemingly rumored to be in play for most every big-name free agent, but the Harvin-Musgrave connection does make more sense than most of the proposed hook-ups. Harvin had 29 receptions and 22 rushes for 460 total yards and a TD in his eight-game coffee break with the Jets this past season, and he would certainly find the opportunities to be just as plentiful in Oakland.

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin is expected to be cut by March 19, in the opinion of ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini. Harvin has a $10.5 million cap number for 2015, and the team would owe the Seattle Seahawks a fourth-round pick if he's on the roster after that date.
Huddle Up: Eventually, no matter how talented you are, if you're a locker room headache you run out of chances. So far Harvin has burned through three teams; looks like we'll get to find out if a fourth team is the charm.

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ribs) said he is confident he will be able to play in the team's Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: The Jets offense is closing out a miserable season against the Dolphins. Harvin will be a WR3/Flex option if he suits up this week.

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle, ribs) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: That's two straight missed days for Harvin, whose status remains very much in doubt for Week 17.

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ribs) has not been ruled out for Week 17, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan did say that if he was a betting man, he'd probably look for another option.
Huddle Up: Unless you're truly desperate, it's best to look elsewhere for Week 17 WR help.

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 participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Harvin was able to get back on the field after sitting out Wednesday, but his status for Sunday is still yet to be determined.

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.
