Percy Harvin Injury Update: What does I.R. mean for his fantasy value next year?

Stephen Brashear

Percy Harvin was placed on Injured Reserve. Should you target him in drafts next year?

Minnesota WR Percy Harvin was placed on Injured Reserve on Wednesday. His season is over.

Harvin was fantastic this year before the injury and will finish with 62 catches for 677 receiving yards and three TDs. He added 96 rushing yards and ran in a score.

Fantasy Impact: Harvin's ankle is sprained in multiple areas and the tears in his ankle are serious enough to move one of the league's most talented players to I.R. The Minnesota offense has relied heavily on Adrian Peterson and they're likely going to be a run-first, run-second offense. Jairus Wright and Kyle Rudolph should see more targets, but don't have enough consistency to be worthy of a start in most formats.

As for Percy next year, he has been very durable to this point besides his much-chronicled migraines. We wouldn't expect his ankle to be a problem by next year and we'll be targeting him early next year -- especially in PPR leagues.
