Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll talked about 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."
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 gains the most fantasy value, and he moves into the WR3 range in drafts. Russell Wilson 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.
