What should fantasy owners expect from Percy Harvin going forward?

Steve Dykes

Percy Harvin's hip injury is still giving him fits and there's a chance the Seahawks shut him down until the playoffs. We break down the fantasy implications.

Fantasy owners have been patiently waiting for the return of Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin. They got a tantalizing glimpse when he made his season debut in Week 11. Playing on a limited snap count, Harvin caught one pass for 17 yards. The Seahawks were expected to expand his role after the Week 12 bye, giving forward-thinking owners an electric playmaker for the fantasy playoffs.

Unfortunately, the opposite happened. Harvin suffered a setback on his surgically repaired hip and did not practice at all before being ruled out for Monday night's game against the SaintsNow comes word from Ian Rapoport that the Seahawks could shut him down until the playoffs. They gave him cortisone injections and are waiting to see how his hip responds.

Fantasy impact: The Seahawks are expected to make a decision sometime Tuesday. It sounds like a day-to-day situation, but fantasy owners can't afford to wait that long with championships on the line. We should know more about his Week 14 status when the team starts practicing.

Even if he comes back in the regular season, there's no guarantee he will be playing regular snaps. If you're in a deep league and can afford the roster stash, it might be worth it, but it's probably time for 10- and 12- team leagues to move on. Harvin's first season in Seattle has been a complete non-starter.
