Pack to the Future
I believe Lamb was the most talented WR in this year's NFL draft but unfortunately for him, he got drafted to a team with two very good wideouts. That being said, there will be enough targets for Lamb to be fantasy relevant, but you won't want to have to trust on him weekly.Just like all Chiefs WRs not named Tyreek Hill, Hardman is going to be a boom or bust player here in 2020. He has blazing speed which helps but there just aren't enough targets to go around to make him a reliable weekly starter. That being said, if oft-injured Sammy Watkins goes down, Hardman would be a very enticing player to keep an eye on.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was a shock to see the Cowboys snag Lamb at No. 17 overall, as they already had two top-24 receivers (fantasy-wise). This complicates the matter, as both Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup each lose target volume with Lamb in the fold. The question is: How much? It's tough to see Lamb rack up more than 80 targets in his rookie season, which means he should be kept in WR4/5 territory until we know he'll play ahead of Gallup in 2WR sets.Did you know that among wide receivers who've seen at least 30 targets, Mecole Hardman's 13.1 yards per target ranks as the third-highest mark among wide receivers over the last 10 years? His 2.77 PPR points per target ranked as the fourth-best mark in that time. He's good, we know that, but will he get the targets necessary to start him confidently? He's one of those players who can certainly take the leap into the top-30 receivers if he gets the opportunity, which is rare to find in the late rounds.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
My main concern with CeeDee Lamb coming into the draft was that he didn't see much press coverage in the Big-12, he didn't show great proficiencies when he did face press coverage, and he's not as polished of a route-runner as some of the other guys in this class. Lamb landing in Dallas alleviates all of those concerns because I believe he's going to play in the slot for this offense. Slot receivers are aligned off the line of scrimmage, which prevents them from seeing press coverage. Lamb's going to be a target hog in this offense and he's in a great situation to succeed.Hardman's electric with the ball in his hands, but he simply doesn't see enough volume to be relevant for fantasy football. He's going to be battling it out with Watkins for targets this season, but he still may only be fourth on this team. Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, and potentially even Clyde Edwards-Helaire should all see a significant amount of targets in this offense. Hardman can certainly take any play to the house, which makes him an intriguing FLEX play in certain matchups, but otherwise he's probably not going to be consistent enough to have weekly value.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
CeeDee Lamb is an absolute stud in a super-charged offence but he's also a rookie with a heap of competition. Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Blake Jarwin may all start the season ahead of Lamb on touches but it is reasonable to expect Lamb to close in on 100 opportunities and if that happens, he'll be a borderline WR2 given his likely efficiency. That's far from guaranteed but given his upside, Lamb is a valuable target once the double digit rounds arrive.Every year, fantasy experts latch onto young kids with great opportunities. Mecole Hardman was that guy last year and this year, he appears to be that guy again. The Chiefs offence will be explosive in 2020, but will Hardman have a role? The running backs should have a greater receiving role with CEH and Damien Williams back while Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill are the clear studs. Sammy Watkins is still the clear second receiver in KC, regardless of what some will have you believe, and that means you shouldn't break the bank for Hardman. His 11th round price is too rich for me, but he is a fine gamble if you're all set by then.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 The separation he generated before the catch was crazy. And with the ball he easily ran away from 4.4 defenders. Made plays in the return game too. @KevinColePFF Hardman has only played the WR position for three years so far, two at UGA and one in KC, his progression has been dramatic.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Targets aren't simply redistributed when players leave. With that said.. 166 targets have left, and even if the Cowboys decide to use Jarwin more, he's not going to take up the entire 120 target TE pie that was happening last year. Lamb comes in to replace Cobb, who just had a 55/828/3 season. He can be able to make an immediate impact while seeing subpar coverage, the same reason he might be inconsistent though, a lot of mouths to feed. Not worried about Jarwin thoughPlayed a lot when Tyreek was out. And surprisingly very little with him back. HOWEVER. Demarcus Robinson is a FA and Sammy is thinking about chillin' out, and at the very least will be taking a pay cut. And Mecole's speed is absolutely a game changer if he gets onto the field more.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Lamb has a chance to be an impact rookie with big-play ability operating both out of the slot and outside. He is a WR3 with upside playing with QB Dak Prescott.
