Percy Harvin marked inactive by Vikings: Fantasy implications

Stephen Brashear

Percy Harvin is inactive for Sunday's game between the Vikings and the Lions. We break down the fantasy implications.

Percy Harvin is inactive for Sunday's game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions. Harvin suffered a serious ankle injury during last week's game against the Seattle Seahawks, and was unable to practice this past week.

Harvin's long-term status is unclear. He will be able to rest during next week's bye before the Vikings take on the Chicago Bears in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: No surprise here. Harvin was sidelined throughout the week and was spotted with a severe limp in the Vikings' locker room. Hopefully you were able to find a suitable replacement when the writing was on the wall earlier in the week.

Jerome Simpson and Michael Jenkins should see extra targets with Harvin out. The Lions' secondary has been surprisingly strong this season, but either wideout (Simpson especially) could be worth a look if you're desperate for a body.
