Bills WR Percy Harvin (migraines) is inactive for today’s game against the Jaguars. With Robert Woods also out, Marquise Goodwin and Justin Hunter figure to join Sammy Watkins as Buffalo’s top 3 WRs.
Bills WR Percy Harvin dealt with migraines this week and is not expected to play against the Jaguars, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Harvin has a lengthy history of migraines, missing time with them in both 2009 and 2010. With WR Roberts Woods (knee) also out, Buffalo is down to WRs Sammy Watkins, Marquise Goodwin and Justin Hunter.
Bills OC Anthony Lynn said Thursday that WR Percy Harvin will start this weekend's game against the Bengals. That says more about the state of Buffalo's WR corps than Harvin's fantasy value. Lynn added that Harvin will remain on a snap count after joining the team just a few weeks ago. He's just a fantasy flier for Week 11.
The Bills expect WR Percy Harvin to get on the field Monday night against the Seahawks, despite the fact that he hasn't played since Week 5 of last season and just came out of retirement this week. "I feel good about Percy," HC Rex Ryan said, per ESPN.com. "I didn't say we'll play him 50 snaps, but I will play him... I think we can play him some, I do. He looks good out there. The conditioning part of it and doing the football-specific things are obviously not to where he would be if he was here the whole time, but I think he can help us." You obviously shouldn't be looking to Harvin for fantasy value this week, and we'd bet against him helping rosters the rest of the way this year. But he'll certainly be interesting to watch. Perhaps he can at least help QB Tyrod Taylor by adding some playmaking ability at receiver.
The Bills have signed WR Percy Harvin, according to his agent. Harvin "retired" back in April, but Buffalo probably offered him enough money to coax him off his couch. He played 5 games for the Bills last season, catching 19 balls for 218 yards and 1 TD and rushing 5 times for 31 more yards. Harvin is still only 28 and can be an asset when he's on the field. But he simply hasn't been able to stay on the field, playing 16 games in just 1 of 7 seasons. We'll keep an eye on his role, but Harvin is only worth adding in fantasy leagues of 14+ teams.
