Harvin will not see the field much Sunday except on Special Teams.
Harvin will not see the field much Sunday except on Special Teams.

The trade that shocked the world last week truly won’t have much of an impact on the 2014 NFL season.  Midseason trades in football just simply do not work in the short term.  With offenses so complex, the new player is coming in attempting to learn the playbook and terminology in such a limited amount of time.  It is unrealistic to expect a player like Percy Harvin to step into the Jets offense and make an impact right away, especially on your fantasy team. 

An example to look at is Trent Richardson last year being traded to the Colts.  At times last season, Richardson looked lost in the Colts offensive system and said in the offseason he really did not know what to do on 50% of Indianapolis’ plays.  Harvin will be used very little in the Jets offense his first few games.  I would not be surprised if Percy only played in 10-15 snaps in his first game as a Jet.  Coach Rex Ryan said Harvin will be used as a returner, but beyond a return for a touchdown he offers zero fantasy value in week eight.

The best thing that you can do if you are a Percy Harvin owner would be to trade him for anything you can, heck a half a cheese sandwich carries more value to me than Harvin does.  The time to do it is now because as soon as Harvin gets little playing time in front of your league mates his value will decrease exponentially.
