Bills insider Vic Carucci does not expect WR Percy Harvin to have a "major role" in the offense this season.  "Harvin needed plenty of detailed instruction on how to run routes during the offseason," Carucci adds. "He made progress, but needs to make more."  Carucci believes Harvin will slot in as the #3 WR behind Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods, serving a "gadget-type" role.  That gig would make Harvin tough to rely on in fantasy lineups.

Percy Harvin is working to become a more well-rounded WR with the Bills.  "Aside from the first two years I got in the league I’ve been just a gadget guy,” he said. “I’ve been dying to just sit down with that one coach who will tell me what I’m doing wrong and what I need to do. Every day [WRs coach Sanjay Lal] is coming to me with different techniques I can use. I think this year a lot of people are going to see the end result of it.”  Harvin worked with Lal with the Jets last year, tallying a 29-350-1 line in 8 games.  The continuity is good, but Buffalo's QB issues and run-heavy offense will cap Harvin's fantasy upside this year.  That being said, he's a fine pick at his current 12th-round ADP.

The Bills have signed WR Percy Harvin to a 1-year deal.  It's another intriguing addition to the Bills offense, but not a good landing spot for Harvin's fantasy value.  Buffalo figures to be 1 of the run-heaviest offenses in the league and still has a giant question mark at QB.  Plus, OC Greg Roman has no history of deploying a gadget-type WR like Harvin.  

Update: Jason La Canfora reports that Harvin actually inked a 3-year deal that the team can void after the 1st year.  It's an even more puzzling move for Harvin -- and worse news for his long-term fantasy outlook.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets have released WR Percy Harvin. That's not a surprising move now that the team has 2 other high-priced receivers on the roster in Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall. Assuming he signs elsewhere, the new team would mark Harvin's 4th in 4 seasons. That's not a good sign for his locker-room impact, because the talent has always been there. A healthy Harvin will always present fantasy intrigue, however, so we'll be quite interested to see where he lands this time.

Jets WR Percy Harvin (ribs) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Dolphins. He put in a limited practice on Friday, which gives him a shot to play. If active, Harvin will be a low-end WR3. He caught just 1 ball against Miami a few weeks ago but ran 6 times for 27 yards.

Jets HC Rex Ryan admits that he's not "optimistic" about WR Percy Harvin (ribs) playing in Sunday's finale against the Dolphins.  Harvin didn't practice on Tuesday and "can't do a whole lot," according to Ryan.  Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley will serve as New York's top 2 WRs this weekend.

Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Titans. He couldn’t run as of Wednesday, so it’s tough to believe he’s anywhere close to 100% now. Harvin is a risky WR3 for Week 15.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) will play against the Titans today.  He's made an impressive recovery after being on crutches after last weekend's game and being unable to run on Wednesday.  It's still unclear how big a role Harvin will play or how effective he'll be, so he's a risky fantasy play.  But he's also coming off his best game as a Jet and gets a lifeless Titans defense.  It makes Harvin a risk/reward WR3.

Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Titans. He returned to a limited practice on Friday and said afterward that he’s “ready to roll.” But HC Rex Ryan remained non-committal on Harvin’s availability. We probably won’t know his official status before 3 pm ET on Sunday. And considering the injury and his shaky QB play, Harvin will be a risky WR3 if active.

Jets HC Rex Ryan admits that it'd be a "stretch" for WR Percy Harvin to play against the Titans this weekend.  Harvin sprained his ankle last Sunday and was unable to practice on Wednesday.  For what it's worth, Harvin believes he'll be able to play this weekend, but players are usually overly optimistic.  Harvin is still dealing with swelling and has yet to resume running.  Consider him doubtful for Week 15.

Jets WR Percy Harvin has been diagnosed with a low-ankle sprain.  It's better than a high sprain and gives Harvin a shot to play again this season.  He posted a season-best 6-124-1 line against the Vikings on Sunday but will still be tough to trust in fantasy lineups.  Harvin seems doubtful to play in this weekend's plus matchup against the Titans.

Jets insider Rich Cimini hears that WR Percy Harvin's ankle injury could cost him the rest of the season.  He was on crutches after the game and is scheduled for additional testing tomorrow.  "I can't talk too much about the injury other than it will be evaluated here in a little bit," Harvin said.  Check back tomorrow for an update.

Jets WR Percy Harvin injured his ankle late in Sunday's game against the Vikings and will not return.  He was having his best game in a long while, racking up 127 total yards and a score.  We should get an update on his status later today or tomorrow.

Jets HC Rex Ryan admitted that WR Percy Harvin will play a "small role on offense" against the Bills this weekend.  He'll have had just 9 days to study the playbook.  Look for Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley to lead Jets WRs in snaps, with Harvin playing in certain packages.  He can't be trusted in Week 8 fantasy lineups.  Ryan added that Harvin will return kickoffs and "maybe" punts.
