2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Jul-14-2014 by Brad Kruse
Percy Harvin is electric. His speed is game-changing. He contributes in so many facets of the game: out of the backfield, the slot or lined up on the outside, kick returns, punt returns or put him in motion to create mismatches. If he can stay healthy (even in this run-dominated offense), he'll garner 100 targets or more. He can also run the ball a couple of times a game on a reverse or a sweep of some kind. He'll participate in the return game and that could net you a bonus touchdown as well. The only thing that's held him back in his pro career has been health, whether it was migraines or last year's complications after hip surgery. Prior to coming to Seattle, he averaged 15.4 fantasy points per game. Over the last four years, that output projects to between WR10 to 15. Harvin comes at a discount due to his health issues, but could be a strong value in drafts.
Editor's note: For those stuck on Harvin's injury concerns, you've probably forgotten all the things the former Gators receiver can do with the ball in his hands. There's a reason he housed a kick return in the Super Bowl. He is a playmaker, simple as that.
Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice has decided to retire, a source has told Pro Football Talk. The source adds that Rice's history of concussion is the foremost reason why he will call it a career at 27.
Rice was a fantasy star with Brett Favre and the Vikings in 2009. He caught 83 passes for 1,312 and eight touchdowns. But he missed 25 games over the following four seasons, and he suffered a concussion in 2010 and 2011. Rice also missed significant time after hip surgery in 2010 and tore an ACL last year.
Outside of 2009, Rice's best season was 2012: 50 catches for 748 yards and seven scores.
Rice was hardly a lock to make the Seahawks' roster, and this sounds like a smart decision given his lengthy medical chart. The team will move forward with Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin, and Jermaine Kearse as its top three wideouts.

2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
|4.03||FFToolbox - Scott Atkins - I was all set to take my RB2 Lamar Miller but all the other owners forgot to draft Percy Harvin! Yes there will be an adjustment period between he and Russell Wilson, but it shouldn't take long for Percy to be one of the top weapons on the field.|
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
|3.01||FFToolbox - Most would grab a second back here and in hindsight, maybe that was the right call, but Harvin is an explosive player who should be featured in the passing game.|
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
|2.05||FFToolbox -Emil - Was hoping Demaryius Thomas would "fall" to me. I worry about Harvin's injury-prone nature.|
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
|4.03||FootballDiehards - The plan in Seattle is to use Harvin as the same kind of multi-purpose threat he was in Minnesota. The difference? Adrian Peterson notwithstanding, the Seahawks have a much better cast surrounding Harvin. It could make him even more effective than we saw last season.|
