Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman secured nine of his 12 targets for 76 yards in Week 5 versus the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: The nine catches are a career high for Hardman, while his 12 targets were also a personal best and only six fewer than he saw in the first four games of the season combined. Buffalo's strategy of playing both of its safeties deeper than usual forced Kansas City to take small chunks, and the Chiefs proved to be incapable of setting for what the Bills were giving them. Hardman is probably worth picking up in deeper leagues, but it is quite possible he won't have more than two or three fantasy relevant games the rest of the season.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman had two receptions for 16 yards and he added two runs for 25 yards in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Hardman can be an explosive player, but he just doesn't get enough touches to warrant fantasy usage outside of deeper leagues at the moment. It might take an absence from Tyreek Hill before Hardman has a real meaningful role. The Chiefs host the Buffalo Bills in Week 5.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Hardman has been productive at times this season and should see a handful of targets against the Philadelphia Eagles. He could be a possible flex option in some deeper leagues but is a must-start option.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (hip) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 30.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (hip) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Hardman reached the end zone for the first time last week but still has not posted more than 55 yards in any game. Fantasy players should be able to find better options and can keep Hardman on the bench.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman posted three receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers while adding one run for two yards.
Huddle Up: Hardman has registered at least three receptions in each of his three games, but he has managed just 107 total receiving yards and the one score. He is worth scooping up as a reserve in most fantasy leagues of 12 or fewer teams, while using him as a WR5 or flex fantasy option in deeper leagues. The Chiefs travel to meet the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4.

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.
