Hardman was able to put together a solid fantasy day in week two, but this happened with Hill being barely involved in the offense. The targets will begin to funnel back towards Hill in future weeks, which makes Hardman an inconsistent option for fantasy lineups moving forward. He can be viewed as a low-end FLEX option.

A fantasy disappointment in 2020, Hardman is at least showing a pulse in 2021. With the Ravens throwing extra defensive attention at Tyreek Hill in Week 2, Hardman led Chiefs wide receivers in targets with eight, catching five of them for 55 yards. Hardman wasn't the only peripheral receiver for the Chiefs to come through in Baltimore. Demarcus Robinson and Byron Pringle had TD catches, too. But Hardman has played more snaps than Robinson and Pringle and has greater fantasy potential. I have Hardman at WR59, and despite that modest ranking, I sort of like him as a $3,900 what-the-hell play on DraftKings, particularly in GPPs.

Hardman tied for the team lead in targets (8) in Week 2 against Baltimore. He hauled in five receptions for 55 yards while Demarcus Robinson and Byron Pringle were able to find the end zone. Still, it's a step in the right direction for the third-year wideout. Hardman remains the clear-cut No. 2 receiver in Kansas City's high powered passing attack.
