News: 9 hours agoHardman (heel) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
Spin: Hardman turned in limited practice showings Thursday and Friday after sitting out entirely Wednesday, but that modest participation was enough to gain clearance for Week 4. Despite the offseason departure of Tyreek Hill, Hardman has remained a supporting option in Kansas City's passing game, though he's always capable of breaking a big play or two with Patrick Mahomes throwing him the ball.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Hardman is entering his fourth NFL season having yet to live up to the expectations that come with being the second-round pick in one of the league's best pass offenses. The lack of emergence doesn't necessarily seem to be his fault, however, as he's yet to miss a single game (an impressive feat) and trails only Deebo Samuel in RAC (8.6) over the last three seasons. Hardman's three seasons of low target shares (he hasn't cleared 13% in a season) are a red flag, but the departure of Tyreek Hill certainly opens up a major opportunity in what is Hardman's first contract year. The 25-year-old is what he's been the last three draft seasons: a fine late-round flier.
