Harvin has only been relegated to practicing duties, but that could change in Week 10.
The narrative with Harvin remains the same: if he is healthy, he will produce monster numbers. But that has remained a very big "if."
Through the nine games he played with the Vikings last season, Harvin gathered 773 combined rushing and receiving yards with five touchdowns (one via kickoff return). He touched the ball 84 total times on the ground and through the air in those contests, with six being the lowest number of touches he received in any single game.
That is fantasy football gold.
This offseason, Harvin signed a six-year, $67 million dollar contract with the Seahawks after Minnesota traded him to Seattle for draft picks, including a 2013 first-rounder. But the former Florida Gator suffered a hip injury shortly after signing with his new team, which sidelined him for the Seahawks' first nine games.
However, Harvin could potentially play in this week's matchup against the Falcons.
While the prospect of him playing remains unlikely, it's very encouraging to hear that that it is within the realm of possibility. Upon his return, Harvin's lightning speed could bolster a passing game that ranks 21st in the NFL.
If Harvin doesn't return this week, expect him to see the field within the next two weeks. Regardless, he should be picked up off waivers right away, given that he's only owned in 38.7 percent of ESPN leagues.
Harvin has the explosiveness to change a game's complexion with a single touch. He has the same ability in fantasy football.
