 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.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Preston Williams should return from his mid-season ACL as the Dolphins WR2 and when you're talking about a big-bodied, athletic receiver in an offense that will pass a lot, that's got a fair bit of value. There's no guarantees here but DeVante Parker has shown us the upside that exists in this offense. He's a super late-round gamble with plenty of positive possibilities.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Did you know that Williams was the No. 39 wide receiver through nine weeks last year? That was despite them having their bye in Week 5, as well as him not being a true starter until Week 3. He was extremely good his rookie year. He's coming off a torn ACL, which isn't an injury that's as detrimental as it used to be, but it may be tough for him to return as the same player in a brand-new offense. The Dolphins defense improved greatly, their run game should be much better, and they'll eventually transition to a rookie quarterback. These are all question marks, but fortunately, Williams is being drafted outside the top 60 wide receivers, similar to the way DeVante Parker was last year. Given their current prices (Williams WR61, Parker WR22), Williams seems like a much better value than Parker this year. Knowing that Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson have opted out, there are plenty of targets up for grabs, making Williams a solid WR4/5 on fantasy teams that you can spot-start depending on matchups.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.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Preston Williams was everyone's favorite sleeper last season and they weren't completely wrong. While his numbers weren't anything special, the talent is there. If he can get one the same page as Tua (assuming he starts), then we could see a very scary WR duo in Miami for the first time in what seems like forever.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.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Williams greatly exceeded expectations in 2020 before going out with an injury. He'll assume a starting position again in this offense and, as long as he's fully healthy, he should outperform his current ADP. There's some risk currently as we don't know where he's at in his recovery, but I fully expect Williams' ADP to rise as we near the season if everything is on track.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.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Preston Williams is a former 5-star Top-50 overall HS All-American who was at Tennessee before transferring to CSU. Off the field issues killed his draft stock. But make no mistake about it, the future is very bright for him with Tua in Miami. @RayGQueThe 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
See notes on Parker. Miami ran 3 WR sets over half the time in 2019. And that was with Williams gone half the season, with Albert, and Hurns filling in. Parker and Williams each spent less than 20% of the time in the slot(Gesicki time!). New OC, Chain Galley, has loved 3 WR sets in the past. Preston struggled against Man, Zone, and Press in 2019. Not great, but guess what, he's one of only a few guys in town. Should benefit from that as long as Fitzpatrick is QBPlayed 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.

Was a target monster before going down, and now should see significant upgrade at QB. Chan Gailey to MIA also extremely pass-happyStill an incredibly explosive athlete who's role should keep evolving within the league's best pass attack
