Hardman came up four receptions shy of the minimum to qualify as the NFL's official leader in yards per reception as a rookie last season. With the Chiefs' restructuring of Sammy Watkins' contract and re-signing of Demarcus Robinson to a one-year, 2.3 million contract, Hardman's usage is unlikely to increase significantly in 2020.A polished route runner who understands the nuances of how to leverage defensive backs, Jeudy is at his best on slants and in-breaking routes that allow him to get the ball in his hands before taking off. Because he's relatively slight at 190 pounds, he'll likely need a season with an NFL strength coach before he becomes productive enough to be an every-week fantasy starter.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
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 offense 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.Jerry Jeudy was my favorite prospect entering the draft and he enters a backfield with a slot-shaped hole ready for him to fill it. The problem is the overall power of this offense, I just don't expect them to be very good. Even if things go well, the running backs will get a heap of touches, as will Courtland Sutton and Noah Fant, making it hard for Jeudy and his fellow rookies KJ Hamler and Albert O to make a big impact. I like Jeudy in PPR but he's unlikely to be much more than a flex option in his rookie season.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I understand the want to draft Hardman, I really do. But has the hype train gotten out of control? He's played four years of college and pro football, and here are his touch totals (most recent first): 30, 40, 33, and 0. He's been highly efficient on almost all of those touches, but at some point, you have to ask yourself why he's not getting more. Seriously, his efficiency last year was out of this world. Here are some stats for you from my 175 interesting facts from the 2019 football season article: - 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. - Mecole Hardman averaged 2.77 PPR points per target in 2019, which ranked as the fourth-best mark among wide receivers over the last 10 years. Pretty nuts, right? I'm not arguing his efficiency at all. His performance last year was very Tyreek Hill-esque, and I could see him breaking out similarly to Hill, "if" Hill wasn't on the field with him. It certainly helps that the Chiefs are taking him off special teams to focus on offense, as that's the same thing they did with Hill a few years ago. Drafting him as a WR4/5 could be worth the reward but understand that he might be the No. 5 option in the passing game behind Hill, Travis Kelce, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and Sammy Watkins. For a team that hasn't thrown the ball more than 583 times in Andy Reid's entire time in Kansas City, that directly impacts Hardman, even if he is uber efficient. If he starts playing more snaps than Watkins, that's when you'll see me completely buy in.Over the last five years, I haven't scouted a wide receiver who was more pro-ready and well-rounded than Jeudy. With essentially no offseason, it's going to be difficult for him to walk in and develop instant chemistry with Drew Lock. At the same time, everyone on the team is learning a new offense, as Pat Shurmur has walked in as the offensive coordinator. Still, it'll be hard for him to overtake Courtland Sutton as the team's leader in targets. Jeudy can play many roles, including being the deep threat down the field, playing the possession-style role, or moving into the slot, which he did regularly at Alabama. Sutton isn't someone who'll move into the slot very often, which is a good thing for Jeudy, as Shurmur's slot receivers have done damage in the past. Again, the negative is that fellow rookie KJ Hamler is also a slot presence who's going to get some playing time. There's a path to Jeudy being a Terry McLaurin-like fantasy option this year, but his path to targets is not as easy. If Sutton stays on the field, Jeudy will be too inconsistent to trust on a weekly basis. He's still not a bad on to have on your bench as a WR4/5, because the talent is there.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
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.Jeidy finds himself in a nice spot in Denver where he won't be forced into a WR1 role from day one. With Courtland Sutton demanding most of the attention, Jeudy should be able to work underneath well and he's dangerous with the ball in his hands making him a threat to score on any given play. My only concern is due to COVID and the cancellation of the preseason which may cause Jeudy to start slow but don't expect that to last for too long, this guy's the real deal.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.Jeudy is a phenomenal WR prospect, but he didn't exactly land in the best offense for immediate fantasy football production. Jeudy should be a fringe WR4/WR5 this upcoming season, but could see increased work if Courtland Sutton were to miss time for some reason.
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.

Played 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.The offense can grow with Lock at the helm but none of the QBs paced above the bottom third in the league for ATT. Hard to project a huge step for Lock, while also expecting Jeudy to immediately come in and be productive in a low volume passing game. Sanders barely paced as a flex option while he was around last year. If they show they'd like to pass more in 2020 I'll come back to it. Bringing in Gordon doesn't scream that to me though.

Still an incredibly explosive athlete who's role should keep evolving within the league's best pass attack
