Percy Harvin is penciled in as the Seahawks' kickoff returner.
Harvin won't be a volume receiver in the Seahawks' run-first scheme and committee-style passing attack. So unleashing his unique running skills as a returner (28.1 yard average, five touchdowns on 115 career kickoff returns) makes plenty of sense. The problem for non-return-yardage fantasy owners is that Harvin will be exposing his fragile body to hits on plays we won't even be getting points for. He's a dicey WR2/3 fantasy pick.

Percy Harvin won't participate in three straight days of practices during training camp.

Harvin is completely healthy and says he feels the best he has since high school. But the Seahawks know he's a fragile piece that has participated in three of his teams' last 25 games. They'll wisely aim for preservation during camp and then unleash Harvin as a dynamic YAC player in the regular season.

Speaking after Tuesday's OTA session, Percy Harvin said "this is probably the best I've felt since before college."

Harvin walked a fine line of health his first three NFL seasons before combining to miss 22 games the past two. Banged up throughout Seattle's postseason run, Harvin played only 29 snaps in Super Bowl 48. He's still just 26 though, and is perhaps the league's most lethal player with the ball in his hands. There's plenty of risk/reward appeal here in fantasy circles.

Percy Harvin played on just 29-of-61 offensive snaps in Sunday's Super Bowl 48 win.

The Seahawks gave up the No. 25 overall pick in the 2013 draft to acquire Harvin and then handed him a $67 million contract that included $25.5 million guaranteed. He ended up playing just 68 snaps all year, yet Seattle still won the Super Bowl with Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin as their primary wideouts. Harvin looked like he was completely over his hip issue Sunday night, rushing two times for 45 yards and taking a kickoff 87 yards for a score. Expect him to lead Seattle's wideouts in snaps next season. Harvin remains among the most uniquely productive players in the league with the ball in his hands.

Percy Harvin turned three offensive touches into 50 total yards and returned a kickoff for a touchdown in Super Bowl 48.

On Seattle's second offensive play, Harvin ripped off 30 yards on a jet sweep, confirming his trademark explosiveness is still all there despite this being just his third appearance out of his last possible 25 games. He tacked on five yards on a second-drive screen, and 15 more on another jet sweep late in the first quarter. Harvin opened the second half with an 87-yard kickoff return touchdown to put the game on ice. Still just 25 years old, Harvin will be a classic boom-bust fantasy pick in 2014 with big injury red flags but WR1 talent on a run-first team. He has true difference-making ability on both offense and special teams.

Percy Harvin (concussion) is listed as probable for the Super Bowl.

Harvin is expected to be involved in the majority of Seattle's receiving packages and in the return game. Doug Baldwin (hip) is also listed as probable and will play in all three-wide sets.
Jan 31 - 7:30 PM

Percy Harvin (concussion) and Doug Baldwin (hip) are practicing in full for Super Bowl XLVIII.

Both will be a full go for the big game.
Jan 30 - 7:03 PM

Matt Prater recorded touchbacks on 33-of-55 kickoffs (60 percent) in road games this season.

Prater doesn't just have a big leg in the thin air of Mile High. He's going to try to take Percy Harvin out of the return game in Sunday's Super Bowl by booting the ball through the end zone, although the typically swirling winds inside MetLife stadium will have something to say about it. Harvin has returned one kick this season, and he took it for 58 yards.
Jan 30 - 8:44 AM

Percy Harvin (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday.

As expected. Harvin was a full participant last week and will be all systems go for Super Bowl Sunday against the Broncos. The Seahawks should have their full complement of pass catchers at or near 100 percent for the first time all season. Doug Baldwin (hip) was also a full participant on Wednesday.
Jan 29 - 6:25 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said Percy Harvin (hip, concussion) "had another great day [Tuesday] and a great week last week."

Carroll reiterated the obvious by saying Harvin is part of the game plan. The ex-Viking has played on just 39 snaps so far this season, but he's going to be involved in the majority of receiving packages as well as the return game come Sunday. During the Divisional Round win, Harvin saw four targets on just 19 snaps before getting knocked out by a concussion. Our Mike Clay has conservatively projected Harvin for four catches, 49 yards and 0.4 touchdowns against the Broncos.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters Friday that Percy Harvin (concussion) looked "100 percent" in practice this week, and will play in Super Bowl 48 "with no limitations."

The Seahawks utilized Harvin like a starter in his Divisional round appearance against the Saints, before a hit knocked him out of the game. Look for him to play plenty in two-wide sets and virtually all three- and four-receiver packages. Harvin should also return kickoffs. Seattle's wide receiver corps caught criticism for being "mediocre" during the season, but it's shaping up to be impressive on paper in the Super Bowl with Harvin and Golden Tate in the starting lineup, Doug Baldwin in the No. 3 receiver role, and jump-ball specialist Jermaine Kearse providing situational depth.

Percy Harvin told reporters Thursday that his hip is feeling "pretty good."

Harvin said he got the surgically repaired hip "tuned up" on Wednesday with stretching and treatments. Medically cleared from the concussion that sidelined him for Seattle's Divisional round win over San Francisco, Harvin will be all systems go for Super Bowl 48.
Jan 23 - 6:55 PM

Percy Harvin (concussion, hip) practiced again on Thursday.

Barring a setback, Harvin appears ready to rock for Super Bowl XLVIII. It's possible he won't even be listed on next week's injury report. The Seahawks need Harvin to provide a spark for an offense that's been borderline dysfunctional in the postseason.
Jan 23 - 5:12 PM

Updating a previous item, Percy Harvin (concussion, hip) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

The only thing that can stop Harvin from playing in the Super Bowl is a recurrence of symptoms or a flareup with his hip. Don't expect either one to happen with the game still 10 days away. Although Harvin has only played 39 snaps as a Seahawk, he's going to be a major factor in both the passing and return game.
Jan 23 - 9:21 AM

Percy Harvin (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday.

"He looks fine," OC Darrell Bevell said. "We'll evaluate him through today and see what kind of progress he can make. We'd love to have him. We're ready. If he's in there, you've seen what he can do." Harvin is fully expected to return for the Super Bowl and play in two- and three-wide sets two Sundays from now.
