I prey on guys like you in my leagues...last year I traded FOR Marvin after 4 sub-par weeks (1-4) and rode him to the championship
The guy who gave him up is scarred for life.
So, you traded for him after his best game of the season, then he proceeded to rack up only 5 games over 100 rec. yds, and only 4 games where he scored a TD - out of 12 chances. Yeah, Im pretty sure you may have had other guys you rode to the championship to get you there.
Im certainly not writing off Harrison as a top WR - but he isnt the #2 WR where 95% of fantasy owners had him ranked prior to this season. The theory that he has become more of a possession WR becomes more obvious after every game. 10 receptions is great - but a 9.8 ypc is more telling. In game one he had 7 rec. - not too shabby, but he only gained 44 yds - for those keeping track - thats a ypc under 6.5. This is not a one game theory fellas - it dates back to last yr with the emergence of younger downfield threats.
