Percy Harvin resumes running, giving slight boost to fantasy value

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Harvin is showing more signs of progress in his recovery from hip surgery.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin resumed running prior to the team's Week 5 game, according to Liz Matthews of ESPN.

Harvin suffered a hip injury that required surgery during the preseason and is expected to be out until late in the season. The new of Harvin running is the first reported update since the end of September, when he was reportedly ahead of schedule.

Matthews says the Seahawks will know more about his progress when he returns to Seattle this week.

Fantasy spin: Percy Harvin has potential to be a dominant fantasy option in the Seahawks' offense once he's fully healthy. Harvin isn't likely to return before Thanksgiving, but the progress is promising.

Harvin is still only worth using a roster spot on in deeper leagues and dynasty leagues, though. It's unclear what his role will be immediately upon his return. The Seahawks have no need to rush him back into action.
