Seahawks will give WR Percy Harvin more snaps after Week 12 bye

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told reporters wide receiver Percy Harvin @Percy_Harvin will have his snap count limit removed after their Week 12 bye. Harvin caught one pass (just one target) for 17 yards in his return last week.The former Minnesota Vikings' receiver said he felt sore after last week's game in which he played 19-of-52 offensive snaps. He is also scheduled to be the team's primary kick returner.

Fantasy Analysis:

Harvin can be as explosive as they come, but he probably won't be back to his old self until the postseason. Not the fantasy postseason, the actual NFL playoffs. Even if it is sooner than that, everybody knew the risk of holding him for this long or wasting a roster spot for him. For a power running team that still utilizes a traditional power formation on many downs (two RBs, one TE, two WRs), the Seahawks will have to get creative to keep him on the field. For those who need to make a push for the playoffs, you might be better off looking elsewhere for points.

This is your advice on Harvin after watching that game and with these comments from Carroll? Harvin will guaranteed 10 touches a game minimum, start with confidence people...especially in PPR leagues

You left out his 58 yd kickoff return.

I agree with dolo, Harvin is still getting the rust off but given 14 more days to recover and get reps in with Wilson, I think Harvin will be a top 15 receiver from week 13 throughout the FANTASY playoffs. If Carroll has the confidence to immediately say the snap count is off, they have to be feeling pretty good with where Harvin is at. - Mac

Do you think he will be frequently returning kicks/punts?

Clearly the author did not watch the game. Most explosive player on the field.

You have to keep in mind that these "so called" journalists are basically arm chair quarterbacks like the rest of us. We could build our own fantasy football website and do as good a job so these yeahoos! Hardin is going to be a stud the last 3-4 weeks of the season!!
