The Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are projected to have a shootout on Super Bowl Sunday, with a game total set at 56.5 points. As we aim to predict the best DFS options on this single-game slate, how does Mecole Hardman fit into the landscape?
Fantasy Football analysis: Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman, $5,600
Hardman has a two-game streak of logging double-digit fantasy points. His 10.2 DKFP in the AFC Divisional Round came from four catches and 58 yards (plus four rushing yards), while his 12.4 DKFP in the Conference Championship was almost entirely generated from his receiving touchdown and 50 rushing yards. We know that Mecole is a utility man for the Chiefs, which makes his fantasy outcomes extremely hard to predict. Coaches do tend to pull out all of the tricks from the playbook in Super Bowl matchups, but with Sammy Watkins (who is $1,400 cheaper) expected to return to the receiving corps, there isn’t much to have faith in when it comes to Hardman’s fantasy outlook.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Priced higher than he should be, Mecole Hardman will only be a viable play in GPP tournament lineups.
