Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With Sutton out for the year with a torn ACL, Jeudy becomes the next man up in this receiving corps. However, Jeudy himself is dealing with his own injury and is questionable for this matchup. I expect him to suit up, but this is a tough matchup and he's playing with a backup QB now. Jeudy can be looked at as a low-end WR3 if he does play.Hardman has all the talent and speed in the world, but he simply isn't seeing enough volume to be a reliable fantasy asset. He can remain on your league's waiver wire.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's instantly the best wide receiver on this team with Courtland Sutton out for the year, though he also just lost his starting quarterback. The good news is that Jeff Driskel was competent when asked to play in relief last week, throwing for 256 yards and two touchdowns against the Steelers tough defense. The Bucs defense is no walk in the park, either. They've continually gotten better and have allowed the 12th-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers through two weeks despite playing against the Saints and Panthers. Now, to be fair, any wide receiver who's seen more than five targets against them has finished with 100-plus receiving yards (D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson). Jeudy has seen 15 targets through two games, so with Sutton out, that number should only rise as he gains more experience. He's running 77 percent of his routes from the slot, which means he'll see second-year cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting the most. That's a good thing, as he's allowed a 74.1 percent catch-rate in his coverage over his 18 games of experience, including four touchdowns on 81 targets. The Bucs best cornerback is Carlton Davis, who won't see Jeudy more than 20 percent of the time. There's risk with a backup under center, but Jeudy should be able to deliver competent WR3/4 numbers in this game with upside for more.There's a development to be aware of among these two. After Robinson played 33 snaps in Week 1 and Hardman played 20 snaps, the gap not only shrunk, but flip-flopped, as Hardman played two more snaps than Robinson in Week 2 against the Chargers. Hardman's 50 offensive snaps in Week 2 were the fourth-most of his young career. It's something we're paying attention to, but it doesn't mean you want to take the chance to start him in redraft leagues. If you're playing in tournaments, Hardman makes the most sense here, as he offers one-play potential. Oddly enough, the biggest game of Hardman's career to this point was against the Ravens last year when he caught two passes for 97 yards and a touchdown. Tyreek Hill was out that week, but it's still noteworthy.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Jeudy should be in the WR3 discussion with Courtland Sutton out for the year. The Buccaneers are 13th against fantasy wide receivers this year. 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Broncos placed WR Courtland Sutton on injured reserve with a torn ACL, ending his season. Jeudy should see 8 targets a game going forward. Jeudy is now the Broncos' top wide receiver with Courtland Sutton sidelined for the season. Through two games, the rookie has caught 8-of-15 targets for 118 yards.
