WR Percy Harvin Will Handle Kickoff Returns

1500 AM ESPN Twin Cities - [Full Article]

With Darius Reynaud off to New York, Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin will return to his kickoff return role and also could factor down on the line on punt returns, although Bernard Berrian and Greg Camarillo are expected to handle those duties in Thursday's opener at New Orleans.

Harvin missed most of camp and played in only one preseason game while grieving the death of a grandmother and battling migraine headaches. He continued to express optimism on Sunday that the team and doctors have gotten the migraine situation under control by limiting his stress and examining his diet, down to certain types of salt in the foods he eats.

"I ran all the plays with the ones (Sunday)," Harvin said. "Feel good. I work on my own sometimes as far as conditioning-wise. So, I feel great flying around (Sunday), and we'll see."

Fantasy Impact: 

In leagues that factor in returns (either with yardage or touchdowns or both), Harvin is a player you want to have. Of course, he's probably someone you wouldn't mind having in pretty much any format. He should be considered a risky pick, but one with lots of upside.
