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.
