Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin ruled out for Week 14
Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers. He didn't practice all week and has no timetable for return. Harvin might not play the rest of the season and is certainly droppable in redraft fantasy leagues.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin remains out
Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) has missed the 1st 2 days of practice this week after sitting out the Monday night win over New Orleans. At this point, we'll be surprised to see him play this week. As we've said before, Seattle has every reason to baby him until the playoffs -- especially after the win over the Saints basically locked up the NFC's top seed. Don't expect to wring any fantasy value from Harvin this season.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin had a "little procedure"
Seahawks HC Pete Carroll revealed that WR Percy Harvin "had a little procedure" on his bum hip last week. It's unclear if he's referring to the previously reported cortisone injection or some type of cleanup surgery. Carroll added that Harvin "should see some work" in Thursday's practice. Still, he seems like a long shot to play Week 14 -- and no better than 50-50 to contribute to your fantasy football team at all this season.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin inactive
As expected, Seahawks WR Percy Harvin is inactive for tonight's game against the Saints. His hip flared up (again) over the weekend and required a cortisone shot. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Seattle is now considering holding Harvin out for the rest of the regular season. Fantasy owners can't be counting on a 2013 impact at this point. Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse will serve as Seattle's top 3 WRs tonight.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin needed injection for hip
Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo reports that Seahawks WR Percy Harvin needed a cortisone injection for his surgically repaired hip over the weekend. The hip has now acted up twice since Harvin returned to the practice field. The 1st issue occurred in October. Harvin needed to have the hip drained then, according to Garafolo. It seems to us that he's trying to return too soon from a serious injury. Harvin is extremely doubtful to play against the Saints tonight. Consider him questionable beyond that. The odds of him being a reliable fantasy option before the end of the season are looking slim.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin likely out Monday night
The Seahawks have downgraded WR Percy Harvin (hip) to doubtful for Monday night's clash with the Saints after he missed practice Saturday. "We don't see any big issue, structurally," Seahawks HC Pete
Carroll said Saturday, per ESPN.com. "It's just [the way his hip is] responding from
the load of the game [against Minnesota on Nov. 17]. He had 16 active
plays in there, so it wasn't very much. He's just sore. So we don't want to push it. It's not worth it." This is precisely why you should not get excited about Harvin in fantasy this year. The Seahawks have gone 10-1 without him to this point and thus have little reason to push his repaired hip. They'll have even less reason if they beat the Saints on Monday to take control of the home-field pursuit. Harvin's absence will leave a few targets for WR Golden Tate, WR Doug Baldwin and the TEs to divvy up.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin still limited Wednesday
Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) remained limited in Wednesday's practice. He'll play against the Saints on Monday night, but HC Pete Carroll admitted that Harvin still isn't at 100%. The team is "in a mode now to manage and take care" of Harvin, per Carroll. Don't expect more than a handful of touches for Harvin on Monday night, but he's capable of turning any of those into a big play. It makes him a risk/reward WR3 in fantasy.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin sits out Tuesday practice
The Seahawks held WR Percy Harvin out of practice Tuesday, though they failed to clarify why. “We held him out and rehabbed him [Tuesday],” HC Pete Carroll said, per ESPN.com. “We’ll keep working through it, but he’s day-to-day right now.” Harvin, of course, just returned from surgery for a torn hip labrum. So we have to assume this is part of the maintenance for that. Let it remind you that this guy's just back from a significant injury. He carries undeniable upside, but there's also risk that Harvin will remain limited in performance and/or playing time through the regular season. Seattle has jumped to a 10-1 start without him and needs Harvin primarily for the playoffs. We'll keep an eye on his status through the rest of the practice week.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRCarroll on Harvin: "He's back"
Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said that WR Percy Harvin will be in the "full rotation" going forward. "He's back," Carroll added. Harvin played just 16 snaps in his 2013 debut on Sunday but now has the Week 12 bye to get more comfortable in the offense. We're keeping fantasy expectations in check because Seattle will continue to be a run-first offense. But Harvin's upside will make him a weekly fantasy starter down the stretch.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin played 16 snaps in Seahawks debut
WR Percy Harvin played 16 offensive snaps in his Seahawks debut. HC Pete Carroll said Harvin was on a 20-snap limit. He finished with just 1 catch, although it was an impressive 1-hander for 17 yards. Harvin also returned a kickoff for 58 yards. He looked healthy to us and should be ready for a bigger role after the Week 12 bye. Harvin will be a high-upside WR3 for Week 13's game against the Saints.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin active
Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) is officially active for today's game against the Vikings. His role will be limited, but ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Harvin will play "meaningful" snaps. He's a risk/reward WR3 in a plus matchup.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin to play 10-15 snaps
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) will play 10-15 snaps in his 2013 debut against the Vikings today. Seattle has played it safe with its big offseason acquisition all year, and that won't change today. We'd expect Harvin to be the primary read on a bunch of his snaps, so he could still catch 4 or 5 balls. And he's capable of turning any catch into a big play. But the limited snap count leaves him as an extremely risky fantasy option.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin probable for Week 11
Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) practiced all week -- including full workouts on Thursday and Friday -- and is listed as probable for Week 11. He's fully expected to make his Seahawks debut on Sunday against the Vikings. Harvin will likely be on a snap count, though, leaving him as a risk/reward WR3.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin puts in full practice Thursday
Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) put in a full practice on Thursday. It means he responded well to Wednesday's limited workout. Perhaps Harvin won't be as limited against the Vikings this weekend as we originally thought. He remains a risky fantasy play in his Seahawks debut, but there's certainly WR3 appeal.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin returns to practice
Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) will practice on Wednesday. He’s expected to be active this weekend against his old team, although he won’t play a full complement of snaps. HC Pete Carroll also hinted that Harvin will see time in the return game at some point this season. He’s not a viable Week 11 play, but he has a chance to be a fantasy difference-maker down the stretch. Just keep in mind that he’ll go on a Week 12 bye.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRSeahawks activate Harvin
As expected, the Seahawks have activated WR Percy Harvin. They needed to do so by Tuesday for him to be eligible to play in Week 11. The move doesn't necessarily mean Harvin will play, but he's widely expected to take the field for Sunday's meeting with the Vikings. The Seahawks say they won't overuse him right away. Unlike the 3-6 Giants, they have little reason to press a returning star too hard. Look for Seattle to try to ensure Harvin remains healthy and ready for the playoffs. That could limit his fantasy upside the rest of the way. Harvin's return can only help the fantasy value of QB Russell Wilson.
Percy HarvinSEA -WRHarvin expected to play Week 11
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it'd be an "upset" if WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not make his season debut against the Vikings next week. Of course, that's barring a setback, which Harvin already experienced a couple weeks ago. We'll track his status over the next week, but Harvin figures to be on a snap count if he plays in Week 11. Seattle then gets a Week 12 bye. Harvin could be a full-go for a Week 13 showdown against the Saints.
