Harvin followed coach Rex Ryan to Buffalo and may continue there as Ryan's kick returner.

Summary

Percy Harvin is now the fourth team of his career. He burned his bridges at Minnesota and Seattle, and the Jets decided to move in another direction. The Bills say they intend to use him as more than just a slot receiver. That could give him a lot of opportunities for targets and he might even end up starting over Robert Woods. There are a pair of downsides in being with the Bills though. First, neither Matt Cassel nor EJ Manuel are inspiring choices and their limitations (especially Manuel's) should limit his production. Secondly, new head coach Rex Ryan, knowing his quarterback situation is wonky, wants to run the ball and has said the team might even 'run it fifty times if (they) can.' Even if fifty is pure hyperbole, they intend to run the ball a ton. That too will limit Harvin's upside. (May 16)

Latest News

Bills | Percy Harvin to work at CB (Fri Jul 31, 10:01 PM) - Buffalo Bills WR Percy Harvin has asked head coach Rex Ryan to play cornerback, and Ryan said he is open to the idea and will let Harvin line up at cornerback from 'time to time' as an experiment.

Our View: Usually it's the other way around. Harvin won't have a huge role on a run-heavy offense in Buffalo. By lining up at corner, Harvin will see the field more.

Bills | Percy Harvin struggling with routes (Sat Jul 25, 09:17 PM) - Buffalo Bills WR Percy Harvin required detailed instruction on how to run routes during OTAs, and Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News believes Harvin will open the year as the No. 3 receiver behind WR Sammy Watkins and WR Robert Woods.

Our View: We're not shocked. Harvin lacks discipline to his game. Yes, he's electric and explosive with the ball in his hands, but being a great pro goes far beyond that. We'll see if Harvin can improve during camp, but we have our reservations. In a run-heavy offense, fantasy owners shouldn't be adding Harvin to the wish list during their drafts.
