Seahawks WR Percy Harvin's hip surgery went 'very well'

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll talked about Percy Harvin @Percy_Harvin today after the wide receiver underwent his hip surgery earlier Thursday. Via Adam Caplan, Carroll said "with all of the information that we got," he doesn't think Harvin will miss the entire season. But as to when Harvin will play again, no one knows that right now.
"What we have heard so far is that the surgery went very well, and that there's a long rehab process coming up," Carroll said. "He's going to be in New York for a couple of weeks to start off the rehab, and we'll get him back here in due time. We don't have any dates or timelines, but we're going to be very optimistic and hope that he gets back as soon as possible, and we're glad that we got him fixed up and he'll be ready to go."

Fantasy Analysis:

The early indication is that the Seahawks hope to have Harvin back by late November or early December. Ben Standig gave his view on the Seahawks' offense minus Harvin when news that he needed surgery broke on Tuesday. I'll just add my two cents: I do believe Golden Tate @ShowtimeTate gains the most fantasy value, and he moves into the WR3 range in drafts. Russell Wilson @DangeRussWilson is now left with basically the same receiving crew he had last season. He was extremely good then, but Harvin really factored into his value this preseason. I thought he was a top-five QB. Now, he needs to be drafted in the lower third of the QB1 range. He is still a very solid fantasy player; It's just difficult to imagine a repeat from Wilson with another year of Sidney Rice, Doug Baldwin, Zach Miller, etc.

Russell Wilson will still be a top 7 fantasy QB. I disagree with his value decreasing as much as Adam proclaims. He was still the top fantasy QB in the last 9 games of 2012 and a year under his belt along with Tate being in his 3rd year will only improve his numbers. Percy will be an added bonus late in the season and could put Wilson owners in a great position for the playoffs. I have him behind only Brees, Rodgers, Manning, and Brady. He is equal to guys like Romo, Ryan, and RGIII.

Glad to see this positive article, those looking for where production will go - don't hesitate to grab Golden Tate. Tate is impressive and has been dominating camp early. I would also be sure that Lynch doesn't fall too far in any of my leagues if I were you.

Anything Seahawks should be a solid pick. I would watch their WRs in preseason to get any idea of who will become second fiddle to Tate and Rice. I like Chris Harper, but they also have Stephan Williams so you never know. SEA should throw the ball more than last year. The one concern I have with drafting Russell is that he plays ARI in fantasy playoffs. They have been a tough defense to pass on of late (see Brady 2012, see Russ 2012).
