View WR Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Hardman set career highs in his 3rd NFL season last year with 83 targets, 59 catches and 693 yards.
  • He was still basically useless in fantasy football.
    • Hardman finished 47th among WRs in PPR points and 53rd in non-PPR.
    • He finished as a top 30 PPR WR in only 2 of 17 weeks. He finished 50th or worse in 10 weeks.
  • Hardman earned a personal-best 70.4 Pro Football Focus receiving grade last year. That ranked 51st among 90 qualifying WRs.
  • His 1.64 yards per route run ranked 46th among those 90 qualifiers.
  • Hardman’s role diminished from the 1st half to 2nd half of last season.
    • He averaged 5.9 targets over his first 9 games, playing between 49% and 78% of Kansas City’s offensive snaps in all 9.
    • He averaged just 2.7 targets over his final 7 games (omitting Week 18 when Tyreek Hill was injured in pregame warmups). Hardman didn’t top a 44% snap rate in any of those games and played 35% or less in 5 of the 7.
  • The Chiefs traded WR Tyreek Hill to Miami in March.
    • Hill garnered a career-high 9.4 targets per game last year.
    • He averaged 9.0, 7.4, and 8.6 targets per game the previous 3 seasons.
  • Here are Hardman's box scores in 9 career games in which Hill played fewer than 50% of the Chiefs' offensive snaps:

  • The Chiefs also lost WRs Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson this offseason. Those 2 combined for 15.0% of the Chiefs’ targets, 15.0% of the receptions, 16.9% of the receiving yards and 21.6% of the receiving scores last year.
  • Kansas City signed WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling in free agency and selected WR Skyy Moore in the 2nd round of this spring’s draft.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Tyreek Hill’s departure opens up a big opportunity for Hardman this season. But he’ll need to duke it out with new arrivals JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Skyy Moore for snaps and targets.

Frankly, Hardman hasn’t done anything through 3 NFL seasons to make us excited about his 2022 outlook. But he’s still just 24 and was a 2nd-round pick, so his usage will certainly be worth monitoring this summer.

JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR KC

Chiefs WRs banged up

Chiefs WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster, Kadarius Toney and Mecole Hardman were all knocked out of Sunday's AFC Championship game vs. the Bengals. It was a knee for Smith-Schuster, which HC Andy Reid called a "re-aggravation" of an issue he dealt with in practice leading up to this game. (Smith-Schuster was added to the injury report with a knee on Friday.). Toney hurt his ankle in the 1st quarter and didn't return. Hardman seemingly tweaked the pelvis injury that had him sidelined since Week 9. The Chiefs get a much-needed week off before squaring off with the Eagles in the Super Bowl. We'll keep a close eye on these WRs when Kansas City officially gets back to work next week.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (pelvis) is active for today's AFC Championship game vs. the Bengals. It'll be his first action since Week 9. WR Justin Watson (illness) is inactive.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (pelvis) logged limited practice participation all week and is officially listed as questionable for the AFC Championship game vs. the Bengals. The speedster didn't practice last week, eventually leading to him not playing vs. the Jaguars in the Divisional Round. Teammate WR Justin Watson (illness) popped up on the injury report last minute and is also questionable for Sunday's game. The lack of health in the WR room makes us feel even better about Kadarius Toney in this fairly neutral matchup vs. the Bengals. Toney totaled 50 yards on 6 touches last week and stands to possibly be in line for another good opportunity for involvement if Hardman doesn't suit up.
