2019 Fantasy Outlook
With Tyreek Hill's playing status up in the air earlier this offseason, the Chiefs used the 56th overall pick to nab a player with similar physical specs. At 5-11, 183, and running a blistering 4.33 40, Hardman's one of the fastest receivers in the rookie class and should immediately find himself as the team's new field stretcher, an especially valuable role given Patrick Mahomes' other-worldly arm. Hardman was a five-star athlete coming out of high school, starting his career at cornerback before switching to receiver. He might be a little raw, but he didn't turn 21 until March and has plenty of room to grow as a player. With Hill now in line to be on the field to start the season and Sammy Watkins still around, Hardman's initial path to steady work is not clear, especially with Travis Kelce being among the league's most targeted tight ends. Of course there isn't really any established depth behind Hill and Watkins, and it's notable that Watkins has an extensive injury history. Read Past Outlooks

Gets into end zone during win
WRKansas City Chiefs
October 17, 2019
Hardman secured two of three targets for 28 yards and a touchdown and returned one punt for 36 yards in the Chiefs' 30-6 win over the Broncos on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Hardman was on the receiving end of Patrick Mahomes' only touchdown pass of the night before the latter's exit from the game early in the second quarter with a knee injury. The rookie also flashed his impressive speed on his one punt return and snapped a three-game touchdown-less streak with the aforementioned 21-yard scoring grab in the first quarter. Hardman will look to build on Thursday's performance in a Week 8 matchup against the Packers, a week from Sunday.
