I'd do it definitely. I have Harvin and he'll always give you a solid 8-10 points and will eventually break out for a big performance. He's a very consistent fantasy starter because he gets tons of touches whether he catches passes or is in the backfield. I'd do that in a heartbeat and you got pretty solid RB's already.

Agree with this, especially if you're in WR-WR-WR-RB-RB starting format.

If you have a flex spot rather than 3rd RB, it's a little closer call because you have Britt as your 3rd RB. Even then, though, Harvin is very consistent and is a focal point of the offense who will get touches even against (especially against) a good pass rush. Hard for defenses to keep him from getting points weekly. With Matthews, Rice, and Ridley you still have 3 solid RBs. You hate to give up your exceptional 4 RB core if you don't have to, but with Marshall/Bryant/Britt you have 3 good WRs but none with the kind of consistency Harvin gives you.

I tend to shy away from WRs as a flex spot unless a team has unbelievable depth at WR, but Harvin might be an exception to that. He's one of the few WRs that will get touches and get you points as consistently as an RB will.

Do it for sure, Harvin is a top 10 WR and is Mr. Consistency which always helps. Pull the trigger!

Yeah it's a RB-RB-WR-WR-Flex setup so I was thinking I'd plug Harvin into Dez spot and have Dez, Ridley, Leshoure (just picked him up), and Britt as flex plays/bye replacements/or trade bait. I'm going to have a hell of a time choosing each week but I guess it could be worse.

This trade easily favors you. Morris is OK for now, maybe a top 20 back, but he will begin to lose carries when Helu and Royster get healthy and we may even have a Ryan Grant sighting. This is Mike Shanahan we are talking about, he is the most unpredictable coach. Morris is not a super talented back, he gets most of his value from volume. Harvin is a top 10 WR, who is being de-valued because he doesn't have a TD yet. This trade is an absolute steal.
