Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin will be used similarly to how he was used by the Minnesota Vikings, in a variety of ways. He'll likely line up in the slot as his regular position, but he'll also be utilized outside and could see handoff and kickoff returns. "I'll be moving around - pretty much all around," said the 5-foot-11, 184-pound Harvin. "There'll be a little bit of running back coming up. But right now, we're just trying to get the foundation set, just running the base plays, and we'll see where it goes from there."
Fantasy Tip: Harvin was a very productive receiver for the Vikings when he was healthy, and he was especially valuable in PPR leagues. He could produce WR1 value in those leagues in a much improved Seahawks offense, and his versatility as a running back makes him that much more intriguing as a receiver.

Mon, 11 Mar 2013 10:07:22 -0700
The Seattle Seahawks have agreed on a trade with the Minnesota Vikings that would send WR Percy Harvin to the Seahawks for draft picks. Harvin will have to pass a physical to complete the trade.
Fantasy Tip: Harvin's move to the Seahawks should be fairly smooth because he has played in offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell's system before. His fantasy value probably will not change that much with the move. He should still be viewed as a solid No. 2 wide receiver but still is an injury risk. He likely will be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

The Minnesota Vikings have said they are not interested in trading WR Percy Harvin; however, that may not stop the New England Patriots from placing a phone call. Head coach Bill Belichick has been intrigued with Harvin since his college days at Florida. Harvin even felt the Patriots would draft him. "I'm real familiar with (Belichick)," Harvin said. "He came down a bunch of times to talk to me, talk to the (Gators) team, talk to (quarterback Tim) Tebow. I've heard a lot of things (about the 2009 draft). I think if Minnesota had passed, they would have taken me."
Sat, 16 Feb 2013 09:13:32 -0800
If the Denver Broncos decide to make a big splash in the offseason, the wide receiver position is where the team could spend significant money.

A Minnesota Vikings team source said WR Percy Harvin is worth investing in long-term despite some of his baggage. "He is a star athlete who is a great player," the source said. "Is he a volatile guy?

Wed, 13 Feb 2013 08:46:38 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Percy Harvin is not planning to hold out at this point, according to a team source.

"However, when you are under contract the team controls the situation, not the player. I hope he doesn't think a tactic like that would work if that's what he's thinking."

Minnesota Vikings WR Percy Harvin is expected to sit out offseason workouts and training camp if he does not get a new contract this offseason. He is scheduled to make $2.9 million next season but it is not known what he would be looking for in a new contract.
Fantasy Tip: This is a story to monitor this offseason because there are several scenarios that could occur. Harvin could sign an extension with the Vikings, be traded to another team or hold out possibly into the regular season if he does not get a new deal. Harvin should be viewed as a No. 2 wide receiver entering next season with the talent to be a No. 1 WR, but his value would suffer heavy damage if a holdout continues into the regular season.
Sun, 10 Feb 2013 13:26:26 -0800

Sat, 09 Feb 2013 04:13:31 -0800
Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman provided non-answers Friday, Feb. 8, when asked about the future of WR Percy Harvin with the team.

But right now, where we're at, Percy Harvin is a member of this football team and he is a very good football player. We don't like to get rid of good football players." When asked if he wants Harvin on the 2013 team, Spielman said, "We love Percy Harvin as a football player. Everybody sees what he does for our football team."
Tue, 05 Feb 2013 11:32:25 -0800

Sat, 12 Jan 2013 11:34:21 -0800
The Minnesota Vikings could look to trade WR Percy Harvin this offseason if they are not able to sign him to a contract extension. The team probably would receive a draft pick or draft picks in the second and third rounds because a team likely would not give up a first-round draft choice since they would have to sign Harvin to a lucrative contract extension.
Thu, 10 Jan 2013 12:27:11 -0800
Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said the team has no issue with Percy Harvin. "No," Spielman said. "Percy comes to work every day. Everybody sees what Percy puts on the field. He plays the game as hard or harder than anyone else in the NFL, the effort that he puts up out there. So, we have no issues with Percy Harvin." Spielman said Harvin was not suspended for conduct detrimental to the team.
Fantasy Tip: This is good news in that it appears Percy Harvin only has to worry about getting past an ankle injury that put him on Injured Reserve in December. Still, monitor Harvin through the offseason, and be prepared to adjust your draft board if questions about his health, or conduct, linger.

The Minnesota Vikings placed WR Percy Harvin (ankle) on the Injured Reserve Wednesday, Dec. 5.
Fantasy Tip: Jerome Simpson and Jarius Wright figure to benefit the most in the passing game, although Christian Ponder's struggles don't make them a lock to produce fantasy-helpful numbers in Harvin's absence - see their Week 13 output.
