Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman has seen a decrease in snaps over the last couple of weeks, and fantasy managers should stay wary of the speedy receiver in a tough matchup versus the Denver Broncos in Week 13. Hardman entered the year as the No. 2 receiver, but has seen his snaps taken away by Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson over recent weeks. Things won't get easier against a Denver defense that is allowing 157 yards per game to wide receivers. A boom-or-bust option on a weekly basis, fantasy managers should look elsewhere, even in the deepest of leagues for Week 13.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman has been an inconsistent play for managers this season and will look to turn that around in a potential high-scoring affair versus the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11. The speedy wide receiver will face a Cowboys defense that has allowed 12 catches for 178 yards and a touchdown per game, but will be behind tight end Travis Kelce and wide receiver Tyreek Hill for touches. He will also have to compete with Demarcus Robinson, Byron Pringle and Josh Gordon. Although he has remained the No. 2 receiver and has big play potential, Hardman has just been too shaky to recommend outside of the deepest of leagues at the moment.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman has been a solid contributor to his real-life team, but a shaky play in the fantasy community this season. The speedy playmaker has solidified himself as the No. 2 receiver in the Chiefs offense this year and has collected 38 receptions for 372 yards and one touchdown through nine weeks. Things won't get easier in Week 10 versus a Las Vegas Raiders defense that has allowed just 121 yards per game to the wide receiver position and four touchdowns on the season. With wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce entrenched as the top options in the offense and quarterback Patrick Mahomes having his own struggles, Hardman should remain avoided on Sunday. Moving forward, Hardman should be considered a WR4 in the deepest of leagues with boom or bust potential on a weekly basis.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman has been putting together a nice effort in his first season as the Chiefs No. 3 pass-catcher. The speedy wide receiver has 35 receptions for 352 yards and a touchdown and has become the top option behind wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce for quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Despite putting together a solid season, Hardman remains a boom-or-bust option in most matchups and will face a Green Bay Packers defense in Week 9 that has allowed 151 yards and one touchdown to opposing receivers this season. Hardman's shakiness on a week-to-week basis makes him a WR3/flex option, at best, in deeper leagues for Week 9.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman put together another solid performance in a Week 8 victory versus the New York Giants. The speedy reception had the longest reception of the game with a 24-yard shovel pass in the fourth quarter and would finish with five receptions for 63 yards on seven targets. After taking over the No. 2 receiver spot this offseason with Sammy Watkins moving onto the Baltimore Ravens, Hardman has been a productive piece of the offense for the Chiefs with his speed and ability to find open space. He won't be the most consistent receiver on a weekly basis, but he has put up respectable numbers to be considered a WR3/flex option in 10-team leagues. Moving forward, Hardman should have some opportunities to make some big plays in an expected shootout against the Green Bay Packers in Week 9.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman has been having a solid season as the team's No. 2 wide receiver this year and will draw a favorable matchup versus the New York Giants in Week 8. Hardman has caught 30 balls for 289 yards and one touchdown for the season, and despite putting together respectable numbers, his yards per catch is a career-low at 9.6. Despite that, Hardman has been the top option behind wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce this year. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been struggling this season, and combined with Kelce's and Hill's involvement, Hardman has made for a shaky play on a week-to-week basis. In Week 8, Hardman gets to face a Giants defense that has been allowing 156 yards a game and has given up eight touchdowns to wide receivers this year. Fantasy managers seeking help at the wide receiver position should consider Hardman as a WR3/4 in deeper leagues in Week 8.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman has quietly carved out a nice role as the No. 2 wide receiver for the team and faces a juicy matchup in Week 7 versus the Tennessee Titans. The speedster will face a Titans pass defense that is allowing 236 yards per game to wide receivers this season and that should allow Hardman to have plenty of opportunities to make an impact on Sunday. For the season, Hardman has been serviceable with 26 catches for 261 yards and a touchdown. Star wide receiver Tyreek Hill (quad) has missed practice all week and if he were to miss Sunday's contest, Hardman's stock would rise significantly. Even with Hill on the field, Hardman should be considered a WR3 with upside in Week 7.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman is coming off of his best game of the season with nine catches for 76 yards in Week 5 versus the Buffalo Bills and he will look to keep the momentum going versus the Washington Football Team in Week 6. The speedy wide receiver has been more valuable to his real team versus fantasy managers, but No. 1 wide receiver Tyreek Hill (quad) is dealing with a quad injury and is currently listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt. The Washington Football Team has allowed an average 205 yards per game to opposing pass catchers and has allowed seven touchdowns on the season. Hardman could have some sneaky flex appeal in Week 6 and could have increased value if Hill is forced to miss Week 6.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman caught 9-of-12 targets for 76 yards in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He led the team in receiving yards and was second in the team targets behind fellow wideout Tyreek Hill (13). Hill is currently dealing with an unspecified knee injury, and the severity of his issue is unknown at this time. Hardman could see an expanded role and uptick in target share if Hill were to miss any games. The 23-year-old has now hauled in 22-of-30 targets for 199 yards and a touchdown over five games in 2021. Hardman is a boom-or-or-bust flex against the Washington Football Team in Week 5.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman had another underwhelming performance in a Week 4 victory versus the Philadelphia Eagles. The speedster gained 25 yards on two rushes and caught two of his targets for 16 yards. Hardman is the Chiefs No. 2 wide receiver, but is behind wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce for targets. He also has Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson to compete with for playing time and Josh Gordon is on his way to potentially steal touches and playing time from him. It's never a bad idea to own stock in the Chiefs high-scoring offense, but Hardman remains a shaky flex in 10-12 team leagues moving forward. Moving forward, Hardman will draw a tough test against the Buffalo Bills in Week 5.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman will draw a tough matchup in Week 4 versus the Philadelphia Eagles. The speedy receiver picked up his first touchdown of the season in Week 3 versus the Los Angeles Chargers, but has been just average throughout the first three weeks of the season with 11 catches for 107 yards and a touchdown. The Eagles secondary has held opposing wide receivers to 98 yards per game and the Chiefs will remain focused on getting wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce the ball. It's always smart to roster offensive players in a powerful offense like the Chiefs, but Hardman remains a shaky play in most weeks. In addition to Hill and Kelce, Hardman is also sharing the field with Byron Pringle, Demarcus Robinson and newly signed Josh Gordon. He should be considered a WR4 in Week 4.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman caught three of his four targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in a Week 3 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. He also rushed the ball one time for two yards. The touchdown was his first of the season and it came on an eight-yard catch. Hardman has been operating as the No. 2 wide receiver for the Chiefs, but he remains behind wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce for targets. He also has wide receivers Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson to compete with for targets. Hardman continues to be a shaky option for managers in deeper leagues with his inconsistency, but any part of the Chiefs offense is worth rostering. Hardman will draw a favorable matchup against a weak Philadelphia Eagles secondary in Week 4 and can be looked at as a WR4/flex option in deeper leagues for that contest.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman caught five of his eight targets for 55 yards in a Week 2 loss versus the Baltimore Ravens. The speedy wide receiver continues to operate as the No. 2 receiver in one of the top offenses in the league and has now caught 11 balls for 74 yards with no touchdowns over his first two games. The Chiefs operate in a pass heavy offense and that's to Hardman's advantage, but he has to compete wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce for targets. The former Georgia Bulldog is the Chiefs No. 2 wide receiver and should be rostered in most formats, but managers should treat him as a shaky option on a weekly basis. Hardman will look to build off of his nice performance with a date against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 3.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman was quiet in Week 1, but he will look for more action in Week 2 versus the Baltimore Ravens. The speedy wide receiver managed to catch all three of his targets in Week 1, but only managed 19 yards. Hardman is behind wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce for targets in the one of the leagues best offenses, but he will face a Ravens secondary that is banged up this weekend. The Ravens are without cornerback Marcus Peters (knee) and fellow cornerback Jimmy Smith (ankle) is dealing with an ankle injury and missed Week 1. Despite that, Hardman remains hard to trust with his inconsistency and is a shaky option most weeks. The former Georgia Bulldog should be considered a WR3/flex in deeper leagues with a favorable matchup and the hope is that he can come through with a big play or two on Sunday.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman had a quiet Week 1 versus the Cleveland Browns. The speedy receiver was only targeted three times and hauled in all those targets for 19 yards. Hardman won the No. 2 job over Demarcus Robinson and Byron Pringle and is expected to fill the void of Sammy Watkins this year. Throughout his career, Hardman has shown flashes, but not consistency. As part of an explosive and high scoring offense, Hardman remains worth rostering, but he is best served as a flex option in deeper leagues and is also matchup dependent. Hardman still has to compete with wide receiver Tyreek Hill, tight end Travis Kelce and running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire for touches and remains a shaky play in most weeks. Hardman will square off against a banged up Baltimore Ravens defense in Week 2 and remains a risky option.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman (oblique) practiced fully on Thursday. He was a limited participant on Wednesday due to an oblique ailment but could logged a full practice Thursday. Barring a setback, the 23-year-old is all systems go for the regular-season opener against the Cleveland Browns. Sammy Watkins signed with Baltimore Ravens during the offseason, opening up the Chiefs WR2 spot in 2021. Hardman is starting alongside undisputed WR1 Tyreek Hill and has the opportunity to carve out a vital role in an explosive Chiefs offense. Hardman is a boom or bust WR4 in Week 1.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman (oblique) was listed as a limited practice participant on Wednesday. Hardman managed to avoid injuries in training camp and the preseason and even played in a full 16 games in his first two NFL seasons, so it would be a shame if he weren't available for the season-opener this Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. If Hardman can practice in full on either Thursday or Friday, he should be good to go. The 23-year-old speedster can make big plays with the best of them, but the problem is he's on a team full of weapons that can do the same. He's expected to replace Sammy Watkins in 2021, but drops and silly mistakes have plagued his ability to stay consistent early in his career. The upside is clear, but will Hardman play enough to be a trusted weekly starting option in fantasy? Until he establishes himself as a more consistent target, Hardman will be a boom/bust WR4/flex.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman will enter training camp as the second receiver on the depth chart behind Tyreek Hill, and Hardman is in a position to have a breakout season. He's expected to have the role previously held by Sammy Watkins, but it's possible that Byron Pringle or Demarcus Robinson could push him during camp. Hardman has plenty of talent as the team's second-fastest player, and he impressed during spring practices. The timing and chemistry between Hardman and quarterback Patrick Mahomes will be a big subplot for the Chiefs offense this summer. While Hardman will need to improve against man coverage, he's absolutely worth taking a chance on at his current ADP in one of the best offenses in the NFL.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman has the best opportunity to be this offense's breakout player of the year in 2021. Through minicamp, Hardman showed that he has made sizable improvements, whether it's his route-running, his consistency catching the ball or his overall demeanor when on the practice field. "I think he's hungrier than he's ever been," safety Tyrann Mathieu said of Hardman. Hardman hasn't established himself as a viable fantasy weapon yet in KC's offense, but his speed and explosiveness are impressive, and he should have more opportunities this year with Sammy Watkins gone. He caught 41 passes for 560 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games (eight starts) in 2020 and has 10 total touchdowns in his two seasons with the Chiefs. You likely won't have to spend much to get him, and he could be in for a breakout season.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman had himself a day versus the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game. Hardman had a rough start to the contest by dropping a punt that would lead to a Bills touchdown, but salvaged his day by catching two of his three targets for a 3-Yard touchdown and four total yards on the evening. He also picked up 50 yards on his lone carry. Hardman is an exciting player, but remains a shaky play for managers with the Chiefs having so many options on offense. Wide receiver Sammy Watkins (calf) also sat out this contest and his return would factor into Hardman's snap count. Hardman is always capable of breaking a big play and he will look to do that versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl 55.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman has gone without finding the end zone over his past four games, also failing to haul in more than three receptions in any of those contests. Now, he's set to face a Dolphins Defense in Week 14 that has vaulted themselves to the top of the heap across the league, making Hardman a tremendously risky fantasy asset despite his role in arguably the most explosive offense in the NFL. Not known for receiving a plethora of targets, Hardman is the traditional boom or bust selection, especially when facing Miami. That leads to him likely having a bit more appeal in DFS, although deep season-long fantasy managers could justify rolling the dice as two of his touchdown receptions this year have come against Baltimore and New England, two of the premier fantasy secondaries.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins (hamstring) will remain sidelined for Sunday's game versus the Raiders, this time due to a hamstring ailment, but the Chiefs will get back Mecole Hardman (COVID-19) off of the COVID-19/reserve list. Watkins has been sidelined since Week 5, having fallen firmly off the fantasy radar due to the length of his absence. With Watkins still out of the equation, Hardman should gain some considerable single-game DFS appeal, along with deep season-long consideration due to his big play ability in the vaunted Kansas City offense. Watkins' next chance at taking the field comes in Week 12 against Tampa Bay, a matchup that would likely keep him on the outside looking in of season-long roster consideration.
The Kansas City Chiefs placed wide receiver Mecole Hardman on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday. It's unclear if Harman actually tested positive for the virus or if he was deemed a high-risk close contact to someone else that did. The good news for the Chiefs and Hardman is that Kansas City is on their bye this week and won't play again until Week 11 against the Raiders. There's a good chance that he'll be able to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols by then. However, it's also likely that receiver Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is able to return after the bye, further clouding Hardman's role in a KC offense that has plenty of weapons. The 22-year-old second-year wideout is a boom/bust WR4/flex in deeper leagues with 25 catches for 395 yards and three touchdowns through nine games.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman caught seven of his nine targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the New York Jets. Hardman had a career day and saw an uptick in snaps with Sammy Watkins (hamstring) remaining sidelined. Watkins has a chance to return in Week 9 and that would limit Hardman's value. Even if Watkins is out, Hardman still has plenty of teammates to compete with for targets and that makes him a boom or bust player on a weekly basis. Hardman should be viewed as a WR4/WR5 option in weekly leagues. Hardman will face off against the Panthers in Week 9.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman only received one target on Monday and recorded zero yards against the Buffalo Bills. Hardman is a weekly boom or bust candidate and he had some potential in Week 6 with Sammy Watkins (hamstring) sidelined, but it was Demarcus Robinson who took advantage on Monday. Due to inconsistent performances, Hardman is only WR4/WR5 with upside most weeks. Hardman will look to pick up some stats against the Denver Broncos in a Week 7 matchup.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
