Mike Tagliere

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.The Steelers seemed to have their starting trio of receivers in JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, and James Washington, but when they drafted Claypool in the second round, it threw a wrench into the plans of fantasy owners. He'll be in direct competition with James Washington for the No. 3 job, though I believe Washington is more talented and has more experience in the league. Because of that, Claypool should not be drafted.

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.amazing blend of size and athleticism
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Chase Claypool's fit in Pittsburgh is extremely confusing, but it's looking like he's going to take over the James Washington role on the outside. While I wasn't impressed with Claypool on tape from a downfield perspective, the draft capital assures us that he's going to be utilized in this offense. He's going to be given every opportunity to succeed, but it's now just a question of whether or not he's up to the task. His tape showed enough flashes to deserve being rated this highly on my board.

Crossroads Fantasy Football
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.
