Week 6- Percy Harvin vs Washington Pass Defense. Yea, this could get ugly.
Week 5- Harvin is elite, and should remain a WR1 in the foreseeable future.
Week 4- The Vikings try to get the ball into Harvins’ hands any way they can, and that makes him as consistent as any Wide Receiver. He always has the potential for a huge game, and probably not too many duds. That makes him a clear WR1 from this point foward, and of course keep him in your fantasy lineups.
Week 3- Percy Harvin is an absolute stud, but he’s going against the extremely tough 49ers Defense in week 3. He typically will be much higher than this, but he will likely have trouble getting much going. He’s still a high-end WR2, but he’s not going to get his typical WR1 ranking in this week.
Week 1- The Jacksonville secondary isn’t as bad as you might think. Harvin is ranked highly because I consider him a legit WR1 for the season. He will get you plenty of receiving yards being the #1 target on the vikings passing offense and even throw in a few rushing yards. Due to a pretty tough matchup, he’s more of a WR2 for week 1.
Percy Harvin is a big time threat for the Minnesota Vikings. Harvin rushed the ball 52 times in 2011 for a total of 345 yards, and we expect that number to remain about the same in 2012 as the Vikings proceed cautiously with their star running back Adrian Peterson. As a receiver Harvin nearly got to 1,000 yards last season with 967, and another year with Christian Ponder should only improve their chemistry. Harvin represents a tremendous value in drafts, as many owners are targeting him outside their top 30 WR, and we have him finishing in the top 10 as the Vikings get their offense moving with more momentum behind their second year QB.
