Mecole Hardman News
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.
It's fair to say the Chiefs never actually wanted Mecole Hardman. He was a panic draft pick after a concerning recording leaked shortly before the 2019 NFL draft of Tyreek Hill, putting Hill's 2019 season in jeopardy. Miraculously, Hill escaped...
