After showing tantalizing big-play potential as a rookie, Mecole Hardman didn't have a particularly impressive encore. A surprise second-round draft pick in 2019, Hardman put his 4.33 speed to good use right away, averaging 20.7 yards per catch and 13.1 yards per target in his first NFL season, with six of his 26 receptions going for touchdowns. Last year, playing only 28 more snaps than he had as a rookie, Hardman saw 21 more targets and had 15 more receptions, but he averaged 13.7 yards per catch and 9.0 yards per target, with two fewer touchdowns. It probably shouldn't have come as a surprise that Hardman wasn't able to maintain such stratospheric efficiency numbers. Fantasy managers did expect a bigger role, however, and there was no change in Hardman's snap percentage (45%) from Year 1 to Year 2. With Sammy Watkins gone, there are extra snaps available at wide receiver. But the Chiefs' usage of Hardman last year suggests that they view him as a direct backup to Tyreek Hill, and to assume a larger role for Hardman in 2021 might be a mistake.
