Now it gets interesting. Harvin is obviously this high on potential alone. After all, since entering the league, Harvin has finished 25th, 20th, seventh and 43rd. Whether it’s migraines (apparently a non-issue now), other injuries or QB play, Harvin has failed to impress in three of his four seasons. Yet, here we are excited again, and here I am ranking him seventh overall. Through the first eight weeks in 2012, Harvin was one of fantasy’s best WRs, averaging 12.3 FPPG (standard). Project that over 16 games, and you have 196 FP and fantasy’s sixth ranked WR. The question is whether you want to carry that risk on your team, or pass on Harvin for a WR with more stability. Few receivers have the upside of Harvin, especially in an offense with Marshawn Lynch and Russell Wilson, but no other receiver in the Top 25, let alone Top 10, matches his risk level.
