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'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 (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.
