Percy Harvin had a kickoff return for a touchdown during Sunday's game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions. We break down the fantasy implications.

Percy Harvin had just 34 total yards, rushing and receiving, during Sunday's game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions. He was able to make his mark on the game with special teams, however, by returning the opening kickoff 105 yards for a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Harvin had three receptions for 22 yards off six targets, and 12 yards rushing off three carries. He was still an important part of the Vikings' gameplan, but the offense was sluggish as a whole and there weren't a ton of total snaps to work with. He should still be considered a good WR1/WR2 option going forward, especially considering all of the different ways he can potentially contribute fantasy value.
