|Draft: 2009 Round 1 (22)
Ht: 5’11” Wt: 184 DOB: 1988-05-28 Age: 28
|It was a tale of two seasons for Harvin in 2011, as he entered his 3rd year in the league. Expected to be a major component of the Vikings offense, the 2009 first round pick was marginally productive but hardly the explosive player that Minnesota needed him to be early in the season. Over his first seven games, Harvin accumulated 442 total yards (a respectable 63.1 per game) but failed to find the end zone. Afterwards, Harvin turned on the jets, finding the end zone eight times over the Vikings final nine games and notching 867 total yards, while averaging a nifty 15.0 FPts/G. What happened? Well, this one’s not rocket science, folks. Adrian Peterson missed four of the Vikings final nine games and part of another one, allowing Harvin to become the focal point of the team’s offense. Peterson returns from a torn ACL suffered in Week 16 and that will likely result in plenty of touches for Harvin, especially early in 2012. Will he get enough touches to top the 1,312 total yards and eight touchdowns he put up in 2011? Ask the Vikings. While they added little to one of the league’s worst group of wide receivers in the off-season, they also had Harvin sitting on the bench plenty in 2011 in an attempt to keep him fresh for returning kicks. We’ll take the gamble. Expect Harvin to be a mid-tier WR1 in 2012.

Percy Harvin dealing with migraines

FF Today's Take: With Percy Harvin (migraines) and Robert Woods (knee) expected to miss this week's game, Watkins will be in the starting lineup and play as much as his foot will let him. He's a risky start but could help owners is a bind at the wide receiver position.

WR has been with the team only since Nov. 1

FF Today's Take: It seems highly unlikely Harvin is in good enough shape yet to play a full complement of snaps, although the Bills' methodical offense will help him in that regard. Harvin was used as a decoy in his 21 snaps in Week 9, so it is a good bet he'll see his first touch of 2016 this week versus the Bengals. Still, Harvin is a relative long-shot to make a difference in fantasy this year, especially if Sammy Watkins can return at some point.

WR emerges from retirement to ink one-year, $1.5M deal
|Sports agent Greg Barnett on Twitter: "My client Percy Harvin has come out of retirement to sign with the Buffalo Bills for the remainder of the season!" (Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Wow. If this were 2011, the Bills would be looking stacked with LeSean McCoy, Reggie Bush and now Harvin, who will be getting around $1 million prorated. Harvin finished 2015 on IR and mulled a comeback before retiring. He's 28 years old and hasn't been fantasy relevant in years, so he's probably left on the waiver wire until he gets in some games and we see what he can do.
