Percy Harvin injury update: 'Could barely jog' on Thursday, fantasy value in doubt again

Jeff Gross

Will Minnesota's top passing weapon miss a third straight game? We break down the fantasy implications.

Vikings receiver Percy Harvin 'could barely jog today and wasn't practicing during time open to media' according to Kevin Seifert of ESPN. Minnesota's leading receiver (by nearly double any other player on the team) has missed the last two games after suffering an ankle injury in Week 9 and is questionable to start on Sunday against the Packers.

Harvin has 62 catches for 677 yards and three touchdowns in nine games. He has also rushed for 96 yards and a touchdown, while returning 16 kickoffs for 574 yards and another touchdown.

Fantasy Take: This does not seem like the week that Harvin will return. This does not bode well for Christian Ponder and there is no receiver in Minnesota that will come close to replacing him.

Cecil Shorts in Jacksonville and Ryan Broyles in Detroit are popular pickups at the moment.
