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

Makes most of one catch
WRKansas City Chiefs
August 17, 2019
Hardman snared one of three targets for a 17-yard touchdown and also netted zero yards on two punt returns in the Chiefs' 17-7 preseason loss to the Steelers on Saturday.
The rookie was responsible for the Chiefs' only touchdown of the night, making his scoring grab on a pass off the arm of Chad Henne in the second quarter. Hardman fared better than his primary competition for the third receiver job, Demarcus Robinson, who finished with one catch for six yards. The two will continue their preseason battle in next Saturday's exhibition tilt against the 49ers.
