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

Catches all four targets
WRKansas City Chiefs
October 13, 2019
Hardman caught all four of his targets for 45 yards during Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Texans.
ANALYSIS
Hardman tied for second on the team in receptions and finished behind only Tyreek Hill in receiving yards among Chiefs wideouts. While Sammy Watkins (hamstring) was inactive for this one, it was encouraging to see Hardman maintain a role with the rest of the team's top pass-catchers in uniform. He should see a handful of targets Thursday against the Broncos, but he'll be rather big-play dependant to contribute for fantasy owners.
