Percy Harvin caught three passes on nine targets for 22 yards and carried the ball four times for 28 yards in a loss to the Bills on Sunday.

While Harvin only received seven touches, he was targeted nine times in the passing game alone. The Jets are going to make a very conscious effort to get Harvin the football, and that bodes well for his fantasy owners. With all that being said, Harvin needs to stay healthy for his fantasy owners so that he can produce.

Percy Harvin figures prominently in the game plan Sunday even though he's had only four practices. The plan is to give him at least six to eight touches, feeding him the ball in a variety of ways. 

Harvin has been a playmaker since joining the league, so no matter how the Jets get him the ball fantasy owners have to be pleased hearing this type of news. Although six to eight touches may not sound like much, all it takes is one big play to make him worth a start knowing the all around ability he displays.

Percy Harvin practiced at the “X” spot this week, which is where he wants to be.

This will be the first week in which Harvin will suit up as a member of the Jets after being dealt from the Seahawks earlier in the month. Although it is hard to trust Geno Smith at this point in the season, there is a good chance he is utilized better in New York than in Seattle so expect more fantasy production moving forward.

Coach Rex Ryan says Percy Harvin will only have a small role in the Jets' offense on Sunday against the Bills.

Harvin has been practicing with the team since the weekend and is in the process of learning the playbook. The Jets will use him as a return man for both punts and kickoffs and will slowly incorporate him into the offensive gameplan once he has the playbook under control. Of course, this could also be a ploy by Ryan with the hopes of taking the Bills off guard. If you're looking for a potential WR3, then it wouldn't hurt to give Harvin a shot, but just keep your expectations in check for at least this first game.

Coach Rex Ryan says Jets will "strongly" consider using Percy Harvin as a punt returner too.

Per Rich Cimini on Twitter, "Percy Harvin will return kickoffs, maybe punts, will have small role on offense" according to coach Rex Ryan. You can not expect Percy Harvin to play 50 snaps in a game.

Update: Percy Harvin will make his Jets debut next Sunday, he spent Saturday meeting with OC Marty Mornhinweg and WR coach Sanjay Lal, going over playbook.

With the Jets having played Thursday night, Harvin is afforded some extra opportunity to prepare with the team and coaches. It should be a nice debut game against Buffalo as the Bills pass defense ranks 17th in the league, gives up an average of 269 yards per game through the air and have allowed 11 passing touchdowns this season.

Seahawks asked the Browns about a Jordan Cameron for Percy Harvin swap before he was traded to the Jets.

We're going to continue to hear more "this team was going to trade this guy for Harvin," at least until he plays his first game as a Jet. None of i means anything as it is all speculation and what a team asked for isn't necessarily the player offered or discusses. The deal is done and "what may have been" means nothing.

NFL Media's Michael Robinson said he helped break up a fight between Percy Harvin and Golden Tate the night before the Seahawks' Super Bowl victory last season.

Outside of a kickoff return for a touchdown in the Seahawks blowout victory over the Broncos in last year's Super Bowl, Harvin failed to score a receiving touchdown in any of his six regular season games. It is now appearing that maybe trading him to the Jets was to improve conditions in the locker room, but either way he should find more opportunities to be a fantasy contributor now with the Jets.

Percy Harvin reportedly 'body slammed' Golden Tate, and had issues with several teammates in Seattle.

More details have recently been coming out about Harvin's anger issues and behavioral problems. He's gotten into multiple fights with teammates, gave Tate a black eye before the Super Bowl, and apparently checked himself out of last week's game early. This, in addition to the obvious poor fit in Seattle's offensive scheme, is a key reason why the Seahawks shipped him off to New York. Harvin has a world of talent, but he's not going to get anywhere if he can't control his actions. Hopefully the very mature Rex Ryan (yeah, right) can figure Harvin out and get help him to focus on football.

Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports that he Buccaneers, Browns and Bengals were all interested in trading for Percy Harvin.

Not a huge surprise that the Bucs and Browns wanted an upgrade at wide receiver, but the Bengals are a novel entry on the list. Harvin went to a team that prolly will not use his skill set to the fullest, but where he will get the opportunity to shine and possibly save Rex Ryan's job.
