Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman's seven touchdowns last season all came from more than 20 yards out, including five from 40-plus yards, and Adam Teicher of ESPN believes Hardman will have to make an impact with big plays again in 2020 after WR Demarcus Robinson re-signed and WR Sammy Watkins restructured his deal to remain with the team.
Huddle Up: Kansas City's offense should afford Hardman with plenty of chances to use his speed to make explosive plays again in 2020, but he is still unlikely to see enough targets to be a weekly fantasy starter. Hardman's all-or-nothing impact makes him best suited for DFS contests and best-ball formats.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (back) practiced in full once again Thursday, Jan. 23.
Huddle Up: That's two straight full practices for Hardman more than a week away from Super Bowl LIV Sunday, Feb. 2. He'll be on the field and is a high-risk, high-upside fantasy option due to his big-play potential.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (glute) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Hardman hasn't been nearly as involved since Tyreek Hill rejoined the lineup. He has seen more than two targets in a game just once since Week 6, and he can't be trusted to start outside of very deep leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman had one reception for 48 yards and a touchdown against the New England Patriots in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Hardman only has 24 receptions this season, but six of them have gone for TDs. His speed is a real difference maker, and you can imagine what a receiving corps that features him and Tyreek Hill will do in the future. That give Hardman ample value in keeper leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman posted two grabs for 13 yards on four targets in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Hardman and Sammy Watkins finished as the top two receivers with Tyreek Hill leaving early, but they weren't able to step up and fill the void. Hardman is worth a look as a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams in Week 13 after the team's bye.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman caught his only target for a 63-yard touchdown in a 35-32 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Hardman is up to five touchdowns on the year, but he is completely dependent on big plays to generate his production. He is an all-or-nothing fantasy option, best suited for DFS contests.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman caught two passes for 55 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: It was another week of Hardman turning minimal opportunities into viable production, which included his fourth touchdown of the season and second straight game with a score. The rookie is worth owning and could be used as a volatile flex option.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman caught two passes for 28 yards and a touchdown against the Denver Broncos in Week 7.
Huddle Up: While 28 yards and two catches aren't great, Hardman did tally his third touchdown of 2019. Unlike frontline starters Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, who are sure to see plenty of targets with Matt Moore under center, Hardman's role sans Patrick Mahomes is unclear. There's obviously no reason to do anything now, but the severity of Mahomes' injury could severely impact the rookie's fortunes going forward.
