WR - CHI
Week 3 Outlook
After trading WR Anthony Miller to the Texans, the Bears have signed former Falcons WR Justin Hardy.
Hardy, 29, played five seasons for the Falcons after being drafted in the fourth round out of East Carolina. Over the 2016 and 2017 seasons, Hardy had 41 receptions for 424 yards and seven touchdowns, but failed to go over 200 yards in either of the next two seasons. He played all 16 games in 2019, getting 17% of the offensive snaps, but finished with just 19 receptions for 195 yards. After not playing last season, he will get his shot in Chicago. Let’s see if the change of scenery helps him get over the hump.
Falcons WR Justin Hardy caught all three of his targets for 40 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over Tampa Bay.
Even with an extended opportunity with Calvin Ridley out, Hardy has failed to make noise in fantasy. He is likely just a guy moving forward as he's been in the past.
Falcons WR Justin Hardy caught his lone target for a 19-yard gain in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Panthers.
Hardy continues to be just a guy on the Falcons' wide receiver depth chart. He will need injuries to the players ahead of him to garner fantasy value.
Falcons WR Justin Hardy caught all three of his targets for 28 yards in Thursday night's Week 13 loss to the Saints.
Hardy is just a guy amidst the Falcons wide receiver corps and will have no fantasy value this season barring a plethora of injuries.
Falcons WR Justin Hardy 2-of-4 targets for 23 yards in Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Seahawks.
With Mohamed Sanu traded out of town, Russell Gage got the first crack at his job and played well with his new opportunity, which means Hardy will remain off the fantasy radar. Hardy is an injury away from an extended role.
