2019 Fantasy Outlook
With Tyreek Hill's playing status up in the air earlier this offseason, the Chiefs used the 56th overall pick to nab a player with similar physical specs. At 5-11, 183, and running a blistering 4.33 40, Hardman's one of the fastest receivers in the rookie class and should immediately find himself as the team's new field stretcher, an especially valuable role given Patrick Mahomes' other-worldly arm. Hardman was a five-star athlete coming out of high school, starting his career at cornerback before switching to receiver. He might be a little raw, but he didn't turn 21 until March and has plenty of room to grow as a player. With Hill now in line to be on the field to start the season and Sammy Watkins still around, Hardman's initial path to steady work is not clear, especially with Travis Kelce being among the league's most targeted tight ends. Of course there isn't really any established depth behind Hill and Watkins, and it's notable that Watkins has an extensive injury history. Read Past Outlooks

Slow day despite added snaps
WRKansas City Chiefs
November 19, 2019
Hardman collected two of his four targets for 13 yards Monday against the Chargers.
ANALYSIS
Hardman saw a bump in his snap count following Tyreek Hill's (hamstring) injury, but it didn't raise his fantasy value much on the night. A significant workload increase could be on tap again following the bye if Hill sits following the bye week, potentially positioning Hardman for fantasy relevance in some formats versus a subpar Raiders pass defense.
