Well, well.

Look who just became a WR1.

Sidney goes to SEA and the Vikes sign McNabb. Not that McNabb is a great option, but it makes the QB situation in Minny a lot less worrisome from a fantasy standpoint.

ADP according to MFL is about 62...WR24. Where do you project him now?

I don't think Harvin is anywhere near a WR1 for me. I guess if I'm doing a redraft, I'd be ok with him as my WR2, but not really comfortable. I would want another season with him as my WR3 to see how he plays without Rice around for a full season and all the double coverages going his way. He's much more useful with a guy like Rice around IMO.

WR1 for the Vikings. Not necessarily a fantasy WR1.

Well,

Things change now with Michael Jenkins getting the 4 yr. contract now too. So i know Jenkins isnt the greatest, but does that mean percy harvin keeps his slot position or not?

My understanding is that the new Vikings offense will be similar to the Philly offense used in the McNabb/Westy days (hence one of the reasons McNabb was a good fit). I imagine they will lineup Hank Baskett and Todd Pinkston on the outside (or any blokes they want) and leave Percy in that multi-threat role.

I think anyone other than AP on the Vikes is going to disappoint for fantasy leaguers. McNabb and Harvin will have their games, but neither will probably play more than 12 games and neither is going to show any consistency. The Vikings lost a lot of close heartbreaking games last year, but that was because of their defense. Their offense was bad and should be worse (at least in the passing game) this year. I predict they will have difficulty finding the endzone - Longwell will be a busy man.

If they attempt that sort of short-pass-heavy with their current personnel, I can't see it working that well overall. Harvin could be useful in that kind of scenario, but the only other really dangerous player they have is Peterson, and he's not really known as a receiving threat.

There are reports Peterson will be more involved on the receiving end.

I like Harvin this year, I feel like he is the go to receiver with Rice leaving and McNabb can definitely sling him the ball. Donovan will have at least one receiver on Minnesota that is going to put up numbers, in the past hes had Owens, Jackson, Moss, I think a line similar to Santana's last year is reasonable.
