Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin has emerged as one of the top skill position players in the NFL this year, but a hamstring injury also emerged this week for the multi-talented wideout. Harvin was limited on Thursday practices as coach Leslie Frazier works to get him at full strength for the 4-1 Vikings matchup against the Redskins on Sunday. Fantasy owners will want to check on his practice status on Friday to see if he gets a full days work in. Harvin has 407 yards receiving, 62 yards rushing, and two touchdowns.
Fantasy Take: It's hard to argue that Harvin isn't one of the top ten most valuable players on offense in the NFL right now, excluding quarterbacks. And even then you could make an argument as he also has 345 punt return yards and a touchdown on the year. He's looking like perhaps a better version of the 2011 Darren Sproles, however we'd all love to see him put up a few more scores. He could do that this week, Washington is the 28th ranked scoring defense.
