NFL fantasy football: Percy Harvin placed on IR

The season is over for Percy Harvin. The Minnesota Vikings dynamic wide receiver hasn’t played since spraining his ankle in a Week 9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. Since then, the Vikings have used a collection of receivers —  including Jarius WrightJerome Simpson and Michael Jenkins — with average success, at best.

It’s a big blow because Harvin had played so well this season, scoring double-digit fantasy points in six of the eight full games he played this season. But since his injury, the only Viking with any fantasy value is Adrian Peterson and possibly Kyle Rudolph. Considering how poorly Christian Ponder has played for the bulk of the season, it’s hard to point to any other Minnesota skill player worth chasing.
