Draft note
by John Paulsen
Hardman enters his third season coming off a disappointing 2020 where he posted 41-560-4 on 62 targets. But there’s still reason for hope. He still plays with Patrick Mahomes and the departure of Sammy Watkins should open up snaps. Watkins’ absence didn’t really help Hardman over the past two seasons–his numbers were about the same with Watkins out–but Hardman’s yards per route run (one of my favorite stats to identify under-the-radar receiving talent) was significantly better than Demarcus Robinson’s in both 2019 and 2020. He should play well ahead of Robinson, though the same was said last season and it just didn’t happen. Byron Pringle is also apparently a thing now after seeing plenty of targets in OTAs.

KC WR Mecole Hardman - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 @ Baltimore Ravens

Mecole Hardman had a pretty rough Week 1, finishing 3-19 on three targets. He continues to show that outside of the Big 3 in Kansas City (Mahomes/Hill/Kelce), there aren't many other reliable options in this offense. Hardman played a nice 69% of the offensive snaps in Week 1, which tied his season-high in 2020. But 19 yards just isn't going to cut it. We're expecting a better performance from Hardman in Week 2 against the Ravens, but he's only in WR4 to WR5 territory. After all, this is a receiver who has finished below 30 receiving yards in eight straight games dating back to last year.
