Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 5 vs TEN (4 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Harvin received the most targets on the team (with four) but did not manage to haul any of them in. However, this was not for lack of trying. Harvin was open three times, once for a deep ball and twice for short routes, but bad Taylor passes and an offensive penalty prevented any chance of a completion. Harvin also received a carry that went nowhere.
2015 Week 4 vs NYG (8 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)
Bequeathed eight targets, Harvin ended the game with only three receptions. However, Harvin played well on two plays that won't show up on the stat sheet. On one deep route, Harvin beat his defender and was away clean but for a badly thrown ball by Tyrod Taylor. Earlier in the game on another deep route, Harvin adjusted to woefully under-thrown ball. The Giants were called for defensive pass interference, something that would not have happened if Harvin hadn't been aware of the ball's location.
2015 Week 3 vs MIA (8 / 7 / 66 / 0 rec, 2 / 16 / 0 rush)
Rex Ryan sure knows how he wants to use Harvin. The majority of Harvin's targets were within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage, taking place in the flat. He did run a deep route well and beat the defender but Taylor overthrew the ball. Harvin was also used for two end-arounds. In an offense that seems destined to rely on short passes and running in space, Harvin is a good fit.
2015 Week 2 vs NE (5 / 4 / 47 / 0 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)
Harvin has really been living up to his reputation in his time with the Bills. He used his top-end speed to beat Patriot defenders, drawing a DPI that lead to a Bills TD the next play. Harvin was also utilized in short routes and end-arounds that give him the ball in space. Sometimes it even worked. Harvin did fumble once but a combination of the awareness of Sammy Watkins and the out-of-bounds chalk kept the ball with the Bills.
2015 Week 1 vs IND (5 / 5 / 79 / 1 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
Harvin did Harvin things. The Bills ran a reverse with him, he caught passes in the flat, and his TD was one of those traditional "run fast and straight" routes that Harvin is so fond of running. With Taylor's big arm and lack of many other receiving weapons, Harvin could be seeing a lot of touches in this upgraded Bills offense.
Latest NewsBills | Percy Harvin blanked in win (Sun Oct 11, 08:16 PM) - Buffalo Bills WR Percy Harvin was targeted four times in the Week 5 game against the Tennessee Titans, but he had no receptions. He also ran once for minus-1 yard. Our View: Harvin's fantasy value has shriveled up since Sammy Watkins went out two weeks ago. He's barely rosterable right now.
link to story Bills | Charles Clay, Percy Harvin will play (Fri Oct 9, 06:00 PM) - Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (calf) and WR Percy Harvin (hip) are both listed as probable for Week 5 against the Tennessee Titans. Clay was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 9, while Harvin was a full participant. Our View: Against the Titans on Sunday, we think Clay could finish the day as a top-5 fantasy tight end. There's no Sammy Watkins in this game, and that could lead to more targets for Clay. Harvin could see better coverage without Watkins on the field. He's a WR3/flex play in Week 5.
Bills | Percy Harvin limited (Thu Oct 8, 06:13 PM) - Buffalo Bills WR Percy Harvin (hip) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 8. Our View: If Sammy Watkins can play against the Titans, then we feel better about Harvin's fantasy upside. Stay tuned for Friday's practice report.
Bills | Percy Harvin not on the field (Wed Oct 7, 05:02 PM) - Buffalo Bills WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7. Our View: After a few weeks where Buffalo quarterback Tyrod Taylor looked for Harvin often, many owners thought his production was on an upswing. Instead he got eight targets but could only catch three of them against a usually porous Giants secondary. We think he does better this week, but only so much so keep him as a nice WR4 play and that's it.
link to story Bills | Buffalo wideouts do very little in loss (Sun Oct 4, 11:16 PM) - Buffalo Bills WR Chris Hogan was the best of the team's wideouts in Week 4 against the New York Giants, finishing with five receptions for 43 yards. WR Robert Woods pulled down three balls for 33 yards on five targets, and WR Percy Harvin had three grabs for 26 yards on eight targets. link to story More News
