News: Coach Rex Ryan implied that Harvin (thigh) will be involved in only limited play sets this week, reports. Said Ryan, "I think that's realistic. It's awful hard to come in and, ‘Oh by the way here's the offense. Learn it in a week.' I don't know if that's realistic. But we'll have some plays for him and get him back there to return a kick and things like that." Impact: While we doubt Ryan would tell the Buffalo media, "Oh yeah, we're going to put him in on every third down and we've already installed a couple of trick plays, and please feel free to pass it along to your side ..." we can't imagine Harvin will be out there in a new offense nearly as much as Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley to start things off. Harvin has the skill set to make a decent fantasy day in just one play, but with Geno Smith as his quarterback instead of Russell Wilson, and while learning a new offense, Harvin seems like a risky play until he gets used to things in his new setting.(RotoWire, )

News: New York Jets general manager John Idzik says the trade for Harvin could turn out to be a "potential coup" for the team. Impact: Harvin, practicing with the Jets for the first time Monday, gives New York versatility and game-breaking skills. But he's also a player who is injury prone and has had some questions about his character. Idzik says he had thorough discussions with Seattle general manager John Schneider about Harvin before deciding it was "prudent" to make the deal. Idzik says the move was to help the 1-6 Jets improve - not a result of public pressure or criticism. (STATS, 5:22pm)

News: The Seahawks agreed to trade Harvin (thigh) to the Jets on Friday in exchange for a conditional draft pick, FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports. Impact: It's a surprising development, but one that would make sense for one or both teams depending on the compensation involved. Harvin only played 59.5 percent of Seattle's snaps this year -- nearly 30 percent less than both Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse -- and Harvin doesn't have the blocking skills a run-heavy offense like Seattle's would ideally feature at receiver. If the Seahawks look to replace Harvin's speed on offense, they might look to rookie second-round pick Paul Richardson. While the inconsistent Jets offense isn't an ideal setting for Harvin's fantasy value, he might see an increase in his play count, which will hopefully offset any efficiency decreases. Harvin's arrival should allow the Jets to generate more yardage and points if used properly.(RotoWire, )

News: Harvin did not practice Thursday due to a thigh injury, the Seahawks' official site reports. Impact: Harvin missed practice Wednesday as well, but that absence was not listed as injury-related. The fact that Thursday's missed practice was attributed to his thigh injury is obviously more concerning, though there is still a chance that Seattle is simply giving him some extra rest as they did last week. Friday's final injury designations should provide some more information about Harvin's status for Week 7.(RotoWire, )

News: Harvin (non-injury) didn't practice Wednesday. Impact: Harvin has cobbled together three consecutive subpar outings, during which he contributed 14 catches (on 18 targets) for 69 yards and five rushes for six yards. Of course, his Week 5 performance at Washington could have turned if one of his three (repeat, three) touchdowns hadn't been overturned by penalty. In any case, expect him to return to practice before long.(RotoWire, )

News: Harvin (thigh) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Impact: Harvin's thigh is not a concern, so he should be safe to deploy Sunday against the Cowboys' average pass defense.(RotoWire, )
Oct 12, 2014
News: Harvin (thigh) had three receptions on four targets for zero yards in Sunday's loss to Dallas. He also ran the ball three times for negative one yard. Impact: The Cowboys played a great game on both sides of the ball, as Russell Wilson and company struggled to get much going. Still, Harvin's lack of production has been a disturbing trend all season. He did have the misfortune of having three touchdowns called back last Monday, but otherwise, he hasn't busted out, not topping more than 60 receiving yards in any of Seattle's five games this season. We'd like to think the speedy Harvin is too explosive to be held down for much longer and that it's just a matter of when, not if, the breakout happens.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Oct 10, 2014
News: Harvin (thigh) is probable for Sunday's game against Dallas, Sports Radio KJR's Curtis Crabtree reports. Impact: Harvin didn't practice Thursday, but rest evidently had something to do with that. One could argue that Harvin is due for some good luck after having three touchdowns called back against Washington on Monday, and Russell Wilson's high passing efficiency in home games gives reason to hope for a nice game from Harvin. He's averaging just 6.1 yards per target and has received just 22 targets through four games, however, so he seems a bit like a boom-or-bust sort of player for the time being.(RotoWire, )

News: Harvin (thigh) did not practice Thursday, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Impact: Harvin's addition to the injury report clouds his Week 6 status, though the extent of the thigh issue is uncertain. Regardless, it intensifies the frustration of his fantasy owners, after Harvin had three touchdowns wiped out by penalty last week. We'll revisit his status after Friday's practice, but if Harvin is unable to go, Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kerse would likely serve as the top targets against Dallas.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Oct 7, 2014
News: Harvin had four catches for 27 yards and two carries for seven yards Monday. He did not score a touchdown. Impact: Harvin's quiet fantasy night Monday was very nearly a monster performance. Harvin reached the endzone three times, only to have each touchdown nullified by a Seattle penalty. He has only one touchdown and 226 total yards through four games, but as evident by Monday's showing, he is still very much a part of Seattle's offense.(STATS, 4:17pm)
