Seahawks WR Percy Harvin 'should be fine' for Super Bowl XLVIII

According to John Boyle of the Everett Herald, Pete Carroll said wide receiver Percy Harvin @Percy_Harvin (concussion) "should be fine" for the Seahawks matchup with the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII. Harvin had spent the majoirty of this season coming back from a hip injury prior to the team's divisional round game against New Orleans, and was in the lineup. However, after logging three catches for 21 yards and gaining nine yards on one carry, Harvin was forced from that game late in the first half with a concussion.

The concussion kept him out of the NFC Championship with San Francisco, but it appears he will be available for kick returns and will play primarily in 3 wide receiver sets.

Fantasy Analysis:

Harvin's talent is world-class. It's just been so long since we've really gotten to see it. His presence will give the Seahawks a vertical threat that could test Denver's shaky secondary. If you're in a playoff league and had the kahunas to draft Harvin, maybe he'll produce and win you some cheese!!

Our hope is simple... that he can come out of the Super Bowl healthy and remain as such heading into the 2014 season. If Harvin can avoid the "injury prone" label and play a full season next year, he's a potential Top 10-15 wide receiver.
