Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin said Friday that's it's been a while since he has been fully healthy. He certainly wasn't at this time last year. In July 2013, Harvin was days away from undergoing hip surgery that would cost him nearly all season.
This year, Harvin is feeling "immensely good," and you get the sense that he is almost giddy about the upcoming season.
"I don't know if any football player can say they're fully healthy playing football, but this is the best I've felt in a long, long time," Harvin said. "I'm just going to keep building, building, building and I'm looking forward to the season."
Prior to the hip problems, Harvin was being drafted as a low-end WR1. Now, after a lost year and his second consecutive year with a major injury, Harvin is closer to the low-end WR2 range. The Seahawks' ultra-conservative offense is another mark against him in fantasy.
There's no denying Harvin's elite speed and quickness in the open field. You just wonder if he's in an offense that can fully exploit his talents. And, yes, if he can make it through 16 games. Harvin is a risk/reward pick to say the least.
