Percy Harvin Playing Part-Time Role | FF Brainwave Report
Percy Harvin Playing Part-Time Role
After breaking down Percy Harvin’s snaps from week two, Vikings beat-writer Tom Pelissero could hardly believe that Percy Harvin was only on the field for 30 of the teams 68 offensive snaps.
Fantasy Outlook: Today, Coach Leslie Frazier basically said that he plans to keep using Harvin in a part time role, for reason I still don’t understand. Whatever is going on, either the coaches are concerned about Harvin begin over-worked or he’s not doing the little things well enough. Look to Harvin as a fringe WR-3 play this week against the Lions.

Stafford Yet To Be Sacked
The Lions may not have the greatest offensive line in football but they’ve yet to allow a sack on quarterback Matthew Stafford this season.
Fantasy Outlook: As long as Stafford can stay healthy he’s a legit starting quarterback in fantasy football and has a chance to finish as one of the top five at his position this year. That’s saying allot as the quarterback competition is better than ever before, but the Lions are set to be one of the highest scoring teams in the league. Hopefully the Lions o-line can continue to keep defenders off Stafford’s back.

Kenny Britt Re-Injures Hamstring
During Wednesday’s practice Titans’ receiver Kenny Britt re-aggravated his hamstring that has given him problems dating back to last year.
Fantasy Outlook: Let’s hope Britt has a chance to play this week, as he said he shut things down as soon as he felt something, but this hamstring is probably a bigger concern for fantasy owners than his off the field issues, in recent years. If Britt is out, Nate Washington becomes a legit WR-3 option against the Broncos, but I wouldn’t get carried away with thoughts of a big week as Washington isn’t close to the same talent as Britt.
