Percy Harvin to miss rest of regular season, can be cut in fantasy leagues

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Seawhawks wide receiver is dealing with ongoing soreness. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin (hip) is considered week-to-week, according to a report by Mike Florio of NBC Sports. It's likely that Harvin won't return before the end of the regular season.

Fantasy Impact: Any injury affecting the legs can keep a football player out a long time. Hip injuries can be particularly difficult to deal with.

It shouldn't come as a complete surprise that Harvin is out. The Seahawks have their playoff spot locked up and don't need to risk him getting hurt any further. They have ambitions of winning the Super Bowl after all.

Still, the situation with Harvin has to disgruntle fantasy owners. He was drafted in the middle or later rounds of many leagues with the understanding that he'd be back around Week 11 or 12 and be strong for the fantasy postseason. Although he did return in Week 11 Harvin has missed the team's last three games.

Teammates Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin are the players to own for those that need to replace Harvin in the final two weeks of the fantasy season.
