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.
