Mecole Hardman to be more involved with offense, may not return kicks

Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub doesn’t know how often WR Mecole Hardman will be returning kicks this upcoming season, which leads to speculation that he could be more heavily involved in the offensive game-plan.

Fantasy Impact

Hardman was drafted by Kansas City to help in the return game, both on kickoffs and punts. In his rookie season, he returned 27 kickoffs and 18 punts for a total of 871 yards. On offense, Hardman had 26 receptions for 538 and six touchdowns. That is one touchdown for every 4.3 receptions, a very impressive measure for the youngster. Although Toub believes Hardman “has just scratched the surface as a returner,” it’s inevitable that he’ll be more involved in the offense as a pure wide receiver after an impressive rookie season. He’s currently ranked #54 in FantasyPros expert consensus rankings, making him a WR5 in fantasy leagues. At his current price tag, Hardman makes for an intriguing sleeper candidate as he could easily surpass his current ranking playing with the best quarterback in the NFL.
