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.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman finished with four receptions for 45 yards on four targets in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Hardman has two or more grabs in each of his past five starts, including four or more in back-to-back outings. That's fine as a WR5 in PPR fantasy leagues, but as long as Tyreek Hill is healthy and available, Hardman's ceiling is rather limited. The Chiefs travel to meet the Denver Broncos in Week 7 on Thursday.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman had four receptions for 79 yards during the team's Week 5 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Hardman had a solid game and continues to be involved in the offense. The question, of course, is what his role will look like whenever Tyreek Hill returns to action, which could be as soon as Week 6. Monitor Hill and Sammy Watkins, who hurt his hamstring Sunday night, leading up next Sunday before deciding what to do with Hardman.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman managed two grabs for just nine yards in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions. He was targeted five times, and he also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: The rookie out of Georgia has at least two grabs in each of his past three games, and he had 158 receiving yards in the pats two outings with a score in each. For those who plucked him from the waiver wire, this was disappointing. Don't give up on him, however. He is worth a look as a WR4 or flex fantasy option with some upside, at least until Tyreek Hill is healthy enough to return.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman registered two receptions for 97 yards in Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens, including an 83-yard touchdown. He also rushed once for seven yards.
Huddle Up: Hardman has picked up his play over the past two games with Tyreek Hill sidelined by injury. He and Demarcus Robinson have been explosive as Patrick Mahomes and the passing attack just keep on rolling. Hardman will be a popular pick off the waiver wire in most fantasy formats heading into Week 4 against the Detroit Lions.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman hauled in four of his six targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Hardman was blanked in his NFL debut last week, but he was anything but invisible in his second game as a pro. His 42-yard touchdown came on 3rd-and-20 and could have had a much bigger day had a 72-yard catch not been negated by a penalty. While no single player is going to step in and replace the production of the injured Tyreek Hill, Week 2 was a pretty clear indication the rookie is worth starting in fantasy during his absence.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman caught three of his four targets for 40 yards in a 27-17 preseason loss to the San Francisco 49ers Saturday, Aug. 24.
