Harvin missed most of the season after undergoing hip surgery in training camp. He resumed practicing three weeks ago, but the Seahawks weren't ready to declare him ready yet. They were required to activate him this week, or else he would revert to the injured reserve list. Seattle traded a first-round pick to acquire Harvin from the Vikings in the offseason.
Fantasy impact: Fantasy owners who stashed him for weeks should finally get their patience rewarded, but don't expect immediate production. The Seahawks are expected to keep his snaps limited this week as he works his way back into game action. After that, though, look for them to unleash one of the league's most deadly weapons as they pursue home field advantage. Harvin could be a huge difference maker in fantasy playoff races.
