Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin has been downgraded because of a hamstring injury. After being a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, he did not practice Thurday. Earlier reports suggested that Harvin was only being some additional rest coming off of a short week. In his last four contests, Harvin caught 29 passes for 368 yards and four total scores (three receiving, one rushing).
In PPR formats, Harvin has been exceptional. This injury will ripple throughout all formats though as Harvin has been a Top 3 WR thus far. He leads the league with 60 receptions and the former Florida Gator is fifth in receiving yards (667). If a team's leading receiver goes down, it positively impacts the No. 2 WR, but since Harvin is more of a scat-back that turns short passes into longer gains, look for TE Kyle Rudolph to see more targets next week as opposed to Jerome Simpson . For now though, Harvin is still listed as questionable and will presumably be a game-time decision.
