Percy Harvin targeting Week 7, serves as a nice fantasy stash

Percy Harvin tweeted that he's hoping to be back for Week 7. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin tweeted that he hopes to be back for Week 7. He had hip surgery back on August 1 and has no timetable for his return.

Harvin was one of the best receivers last year and of his 677 receiving yards last year, 509 of them came after the catch. That YAC total accounted for the eighth-most in the NFL, despite playing in just nine games. He does have some injury concerns and nothing is official from the team.

Fantasy impact: The Seahawks picked up Harvin in a trade this season and he's going to add a nice complement to their already efficient offense. Russell Wilson led starting quarterbacks in yards per attempt last year and Harvin's YAC is only going to help his cause. Of course, the Hawks have bigger fish to fry in the postseason, so they're going to handle their prized receiver with kid gloves. If you can spare room on your roster, he's a nice player to stash.
