Hardman was able to step up last week in a negative game script and he finished with a shocking 12 targets. He reeled in nine of them for 76 yards, which is a solid fantasy performance, but he was unlikely in starting lineups if you rostered him. This week against Washington, there's the potential that Hardman has a good game, but there's also a strong possibility that he's not needed much here in a game that Kansas City should be able to win fairly easily. If you do plug Hardman into your starting lineup, you're going to be left hoping that he finds the end zone. Otherwise, we could be looking at a disappointing performance. He's a low-end FLEX play in deeper formats only.
