Summary

The rookie is projected to replace Tyreek Hill in the Chiefs' starting lineup if Hill is suspended or cut from the team. Although Hardman will be hard-pressed to match Hill's production, he has the skills to ably fill Hill's role. He's an All-American return specialist with excellent speed and skill to track the ball in the vertical passing game. He also displays prowess for back-shoulder plays. A former high school quarterback, Hardman is still a work-in-progress as a route runner and will have some challenges against tight man coverage this year. Still, his speed, hands, and skill after the catch will allow the Chiefs offense to use him as a threat in similar ways as Hill. It's why Hardman will have a significant role in the offense that will benefit fantasy players in 2019. (May 22)
