The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off of a huge 43-16 win over the Broncos in Week 7, where Patrick Mahomes wasn’t asked to do much as special teams and the Chiefs defense really showed their skill in this one. Without Sammy Watkins in the lineup for the last two weeks with a hamstring injury, it’s been up to the other wide receivers to pick up any extra slack.

Fantasy Football analysis: Chiefs WRs Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman, Demarcus Robinson

Tyreek Hill had the most targets throughout the Broncos game, going 6-for-10, adding 55 yards and a TD. Mecole Hardman, while not seeing the ball quite as much, went 2-for-2 for a total of 57 yards. Demarcus Robinson only saw one target throughout the game and wasn’t utilized much at all. Watkins was ruled out against the Jets in Week 8 due to injury, and this could be Robinson’s time to shine, as he generally is expected to step up when Watkins isn’t in the picture. He’s received 2 more targets than Hardman throughout the season and has featured in less games, though Hardman has more yards. At any rate, Tyreek Hill will continue to be the WR1 for the Chiefs and should be good for plenty of targets against a struggling Jets defense in Week 8.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Tyreek Hill, sit Mecole Hardman, sit Demarcus Robinson.
