Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman caught five passes for 55 yards in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens. He was targeted eight times.
Huddle Up: With Tyreek Hill in Baltimore's crosshairs, Hardman matched Travis Kelce for the team high in targets with eight. His five receptions were second on the team and his 55 yards were third, but fellow tertiary options Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson got the touchdowns. While it's still very much a two-man game for Kansas City's pass attack, Hardman is the "next man up" that can carry value in the right matchup or if either were to miss time.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman posted three receptions for 19 yards on his three targets in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Hardman was drafted as a WR4 or flex fantasy option, so this was a bit of a disappointing start. He'll look to rebound in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens on the road.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (oblique) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 10, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Hardman is entering the season as the No. 2 receiver for the Chiefs and should see a handful of targets each game. He could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues, but most fantasy players likely have better options available.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (oblique) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: Hardman will be receiving a bigger role this season and has big-play ability because of his speed. He could be a possible flex option in some leagues but can also be benched if better options are available.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (oblique) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 8.
Huddle Up: Hardman is expected to take over as the No. 2 receiver for the Chiefs this season. He likely will see a handful of targets this week against the Cleveland Browns but may not be a starting option in many fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman caught four of his eight targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in a 17-10 preseason win over the Arizona Cardinals Friday, Aug. 20.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs are hoping Hardman can step up and be a reliable weapon behind Tyreek Hill and and Travis Kelce in the passing attack. His big-play speed is undeniable, but it remains to be seen if he can become a consistent week-to-week fantasy starter. The upside makes him worth a look in the middle rounds.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman said he hopes to be an every down receiver for the Chiefs this season.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs lost Sammy Watkins during the offseason, so Hardman has a chance to be the No. 2 receiver for Kansas City in 2021. He has posted decent numbers over the last few seasons but likely would improve on those numbers with a bigger role. He could be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver depending on his role.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman had 15 more receptions on 21 additional targets in 2020 compared to his rookie season, finishing with 22 more receiving yards and a 13.7 drop rate.
Huddle Up: The increased role in the passing attack didn't translate to production on the field, and the drop rate certainly didn't help. Hardman's role should continue to increase in 2021, but there is no guarantee he will be more than a big play-dependent WR5.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman's role could expand in 2021 with WRs Demarcus Robinson and Sammy Watkins potential unrestricted free agents. He was targeted six times in the Super Bowl, but he only caught two of the passes for four yards.
Huddle Up: KC is interesting in keeping Watkins, but he has proven to be extremely brittle. Hardman looks like a WR5 flyer right now, but that could enhance if his role does.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman caught three passes for 24 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 16. He was targeted six times during the game.
Huddle Up: Hardman may be more involved in the passing game next week if Sammy Watkins is held out or if the Chiefs decide to rest their starters. He can be a flex option if he receives a bigger role.
