Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman is inactive for Saturday’s matchup with the Raiders. Out since Week 9, Hardman should return for the postseason.

Chiefs WR Skyy Moore (hand) did not practice on Thursday and has been ruled out for Week 18 vs. the Raiders. Fellow WR Mecole Hardman (pelvis) logged back-to-back days of limited practice and carries a questionable designation for the contest. Fantasy managers would be wise to keep an eye on the status of Hardman as it relates to WR Kadarius Toney. The Raiders are the 12th-best matchup for opposing WRs in adjusted fantasy points allowed this season. This contest would be a potentially strong spot for Toney as a deep flex consideration/DFS play. Be sure to keep an eye on this one before kickoff on Saturday.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) has been activated from IR, putting him in line to play in Saturday's regular-season finale vs. the Raiders. Hardman has been out since Week 9. He'd be a flier in Week 18 fantasy lineups but is certainly in play for NFL Playoffs fantasy contests.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) suffered a setback in Wednesday's practice and won't play vs. the Broncos this weekend, HC Andy Reid said. "I'm not that worried about it," Reid added, which presumably means Hardman should at least be ready for the playoffs. JuJu Smith-Schuster remains the only reliable fantasy play in Kansas City's WR corps.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Wednesday that he expects WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) to return for this weekend's game vs. the Broncos, barring a setback. Hardman has been out since Week 9. He was emerging as a significant piece of the offense before going down, averaging 5.5 targets, 4.3 catches, 57 yards and .75 TDs over his last 4 games. It's unclear how big a role he'll play in his first game back, though, leaving him as a shaky Week 17 fantasy play.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid suggested Thursday that WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) won't be ready to play vs. the Seahawks this weekend. "I'm not sure he's where he need to be," Reid said. We'll see if Hardman can make it back for Week 17. JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Justin Watson have been running as Kansas City's top 3 WRs lately.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) has a “good chance” of being available for Week 16 vs. the Seahawks according to Chiefs HC Andy Reid. Hardman has not played since being placed on IR following Week 9 vs. the Titans. The game against the Seahawks is on Saturday, so today’s news will provide some important clarity on this front.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) was not activated and won't play vs. the Texans today. Hardman got back on the practice field this week and is on track to return for this coming Saturday's game vs. the Seahawks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) was designated to return from IR and practiced this week. But HC Andy Reid said Friday that he’s “leaning away” from playing Hardman vs. the Texans this weekend. There’s certainly no reason for Kansas City to push Hardman back for this one.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) has been designated to return from IR. He'll be back at practice today, and we'll see if he's able to play vs. the Texans on Sunday. Hardman racked up 17 catches on 22 targets for 226 yards and 3 TDs in his last 4 games before landing on IR.

Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) is out for Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers. No surprise after he sustained his 4th documented concussion last week. We'll see if Smith-Schuster can get cleared for Week 12. With WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen, illness) on IR, Kansas City is down to WRs Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kadarius Toney, Justin Watson and Skyy Moore. See where they sit in the Week 11 WR Rankings.

The Chiefs placed WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) on IR. We still don't have any details on his injury, but he's out at least the next 4 games. Hardman is droppable in most fantasy leagues. His absence opens up opportunity for WR Kadarius Toney -- although it's worth noting that WR Justin Watson ran more routes than Toney last week. Toney should be owned in all fantasy leagues at this point, but Watson is also worth stashing in deeper setups.

Chiefs WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (illness) and Mecole Hardman (abdomen, illness) missed Wednesday's practice. Valdes-Scantling should be fine for Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers, but Smith-Schuster and Hardman are iffy. Their absences would likely mean a significant role for WR Kadarius Toney.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. He's operated as Kansas City's #3 WR all year, averaging 4.3 targets per game (10% share). Hardman's absence leaves WRs Kadarius Toney, Skyy Moore and Justin Watson behind JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. We're expecting a committee to replace Hardman, leaving Toney, Moore and Watson as low-floor fantasy plays. But Toney is our preference if choosing between them. Hardman has played 49% of his snaps in the slot this season. Toney was in the slot for 4 of his 9 snaps last week. Moore has played 39% of his snaps in the slot this season; Watson 40%.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. HC Andy Reid described Hardman's issue as "soreness," but it certainly seems like he's in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars. His absence would leave #3 WR duties to some combination of Kadarius Toney, Skyy Moore and Justin Watson.
