Seahawks WR Percy Harvin won't 'necessarily' get 1,000 yards this season

As hard as I think it is to believe, the Seahawks haven't had a 1,000-yard receiver since Bobby Engram in 2007. But surely that will change with Percy Harvin @Percy_Harvin, a man that the Seahawks traded three draft picks and invested $25.5 million in guaranteed money in to bring to their side. Right? Danny O'Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle writes that's "not necessarily" true.
"Seattle's offense will be built around the run," O'Neil wrote. "Coach Pete Carroll hasn't wavered from that mandate since he was introduced as the Seahawks coach ... ."

Fantasy Analysis:

The Seahawks ran a league-high 536 times last year. The Patriots ran 523 times; that didn't really hurt Wes Welker. The Texans ran 508 times; that didn't really hurt Andre Johnson. The 49ers ran 492 times; that didn't really hurt Michael Crabtree. All of those WRs topped 1,000 yards -- a number that 20 players surpassed last season. Harvin recorded 677 receiving yards in nine games last year in an offense that was all about Adrian Peterson.
But 1,000 yards isn't the issue here. This is more about the frequency with which Seattle runs and will continue to run the ball negatively affecting Harvin's overall numbers. I don't buy it. He is the Seahawks' clear No. 1 WR, and he is going to get a boatload of targets this season. The Seahawks will see to that so they can get the most for their dollar. Harvin is a low-end WR1.

Dude, you just said Terrell Owens was a 1,000 YD receiver for the Seahawks. He was a cowboy.
