Draft note
by John Paulsen
Hardman finished the season as the No. 59 receiver, but most of his production came in the six games that Tyreek Hill either missed or played very few snaps. He averaged 1.2 receptions for 28 yards and 0.40 touchdowns (on 1.4 targets per game) in the 10 games that Hill played full snaps. He added a total of four catches for 29 yards on six targets in three postseason games. The Chiefs restructured Sammy Watkins’ deal so they didn’t have to cut him and they also re-signed Demarcus Robinson, who played 70% of the snaps last season. Hardman is going to have to leapfrog Watkins and/or Robinson on the depth chart in order to become a consistent fantasy threat this season.

KC WR Mecole Hardman - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Mecole Hardman showed promise in 2019, finishing with 538 yards and six touchdowns. He averaged an insane 20.7 yards per catch, proving he’s a valuable deep threat for Kansas City and the strong-armed Patrick Mahomes. Receivers typically break out in their second or third year, so there’s optimism we could see Hardman improve in 2020.

Fantasy Downside
There was hope the Chiefs would let Sammy Watkins walk, which would have freed up playing time for Hardman. Instead, Watkins is back and the Chiefs also signed Demarcus Robinson. Playing time was tough for Hardman last season as he only played above 40% of the offensive snaps once from Week 8 to Week 17. Hardman was also incredibly unreliant last season, finishing four games with no receptions at all.

2020 Bottom Line
Unless there’s an injury to a Chiefs receiver, it’s difficult to see Hardman getting enough playing time to be a reliable option. Kansas City might use him sparingly on deep throws, but those are impossible to predict. In fact, in four of the six games where Hardman caught a touchdown last season, he had two or fewer receptions. He’s a boom-or-bust player on a week-to-week basis unless there’s a change in the roster.
