Hardman had a nice fantasy line in his first game without Tyreek Hill, and it could have been much bigger if a 72-yard TD hadn't been negated by a holding penalty. The Chiefs drafted Hardman with an eye towards replicating Hill's role in the offense, and it's looking like he could be up to the task. Travis Kelce and Sammy Watkins are the top two options in this passing attack, so Hardman may not pop every week while competing for targets with Demarcus Robinson. But he has week-winning upside, which is certainly worth this risk in a WR3/flex spot.

Hardman was tremendous in Week 2 for Kansas City and you might not have noticed by looking at the box score since he had a 70-yard score called back. He is the #3 in this offense but we know Mahomes can support three or four fantasy relevant guys at a time.

Upside is apparent but Robinson is more experienced and may continue to overshadow him while Hill is out
