Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman had one catch for six yards on Thursday, Sept. 10, against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: There are only so many balls to go around, and the only sure things in KC's passing attack are Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, whereas the likes of Hardman, Sammy Watkins and Demarcus Robinson are likely to ebb and flow. That level of uncertainty makes Hardman a tough sell to roll the dice on in a weekly fantasy lineup, even though his talent and the offensive upside suggest he's worth owning.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman posted five touchdowns of at least 25 yards last season, which was tied for most in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Hardman will not be a starter for the Chiefs this upcoming season but will see a solid amount of targets because of his big play ability. He is part of one of the top offenses in the NFL and could be a late round option in fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman had six receiving touchdowns from the slot in 2019 which tied for the most in the league, according to Pro Football Focus data.
Huddle Up: Hrdman had a big-play rookie season, finishing with 26 receptions for 538 yards and six TDs while adding 17 yards and a TD on four rushing attempts. He should be more involved in Year 2, but he's nothing more than a WR5 flier right now in the majority of redraft leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman is expected to be used less in the return game this season as he becomes more involved in the offense, but special teams coordinator Dave Stoub still values his potential contributions as a returner. 'I'm not sure about Hardman. I don't want to lose him. I think he's just scratched the surface as a returner,' Stoub said.
Huddle Up: Hardman averaged 9.3 yards per return on 18 punt returns along with 26.1 yards on 27 kick returns as a rookie. He returned one kickoff for a touchdown. He also averaged 20.7 yards per receptions on just 26 receptions, racking up 538 yards and six touchdowns. WR Sammy Watkins was retained this offseason and WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce will remain the top two options in the passing game, but Hardman is a viable late-round target with a high ceiling, despite uncertain usage.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman averaged 11.5 yards after the catch per reception in 2019 - the highest average for any player with at least 25 catches.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman led all receivers with a 146.6 passer rating when targeted in 2019, finishing with six touchdowns and 20.7 yards per reception on 41 targets.

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.

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.
