The Kansas City Chiefs are rolling into New Orleans for a game against the Saints. Once again, they’ll be leaning heavily on their passing attack to keep themselves in prime position atop the AFC with the playoffs right around the corner. The fantasy football playoffs, however, are here, and with any offense this prolific, your lineup could really benefit.
Fantasy Football analysis: Chiefs WRs Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman
Hill is obviously an established WR1 option. Last week against the Dolphins, he caught three passes on seven targets for 79 yards and a touchdown. Miami had the downfield passing game bottled up for a lot of the day, but he still found a way to turn one of those three catches into a 44-yard touchdown. That’s a prime example of why you have to leave him in your lineup no matter who the Chiefs are playing. Remember that Week 12 game with 269 yards and three touchdowns? Speaking of touchdowns, Hill’s scored in six of his last seven games too.
Despite being the No. 2 receiver, Mecole Hardman is not sharing the wealth in the Chiefs passing game. He had 40 yards on three catches last week, which was his best game since Week 9. Between Hill and tight end Travis Kelce, there’s only so much work to go around.
The Saints defense is tough, but it’s not unbeatable for a playmaker like Hill.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Tyreek Hill. Sit Mecole Hardman.
