I think I’m gonna start him just so I can look like a genius when he goes off. My league mates already think I’m dumb so if he flops no loss. 

Literally all you have to think about to see the obvious upside here is Sammy Watkins injury history.

I saw Hill warming up, he looks explosive.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Tyreek Hill (collarbone) could return in two weeks.

Hill has made steady progress in his recovery from a broken collarbone and will undergo imaging tests this week to determine when he can resume playing. A Week 6 return would seem to be a distinct possibility, though Schefter insists the Chiefs will "not rush" their star deep threat. Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson have both shined in Hill's absence.

I personally thought Hill looks like he'll come back next week. Good to know though.

Ya he looks explosive. It's not like the dude tore a hamstring.. He broke his collarbone. He shouldn't lose any quickness or speed he remains the same. Just enjoy Hardman while we have the remaining time.

With the way Tyreek looked in warmups, I don't see any way you keep this guy on your roster after that showing unless you plan on starting him next week. And you'd have to be pretty desperate to start him.

He gone for me

Not me. Sorry, but I wasn't drinking the cool aid. Yeah, he's really fast, and Mahomes has a cannon for an arm. I get it. But, the target/volume just didn't support starting him. if you did the past couple of weeks, congrats you got some good will from the fantasy gods. Moving forward, you're playing FF Russian Roulette.

This was an awful game for every chiefs pass catcher. I think its an overreaction to straight up drop this guy. Most weeks you will want as many chiefs as you can get. Mahomes throwing 0 tds will not be a trend. Mecole only needs 1 catch to give you flex value weekly, i will continue to roll him out in weeks where i am projected to lose to my opponent by a large margin.

Ehhh, is that really true though? I think a lot of people hoping for 1 68-yard TD catch got burned this week. Again, I think you need to evaluate if you're starting him next week. If not, he's dead weight, because Hill is going to eat most / all of his fantasy viability.

It's a fine line with this guy. If you don't have Tyreek and/or have good depth at WR, dropping is a viable option. But anybdoy should've known that he is a boom-or-bust flex and I think nobody in this thread has argued otherwise so far. That said, give me the boom-or-bust WR on the best offense in the league over boom-or-bust players on average offenses. The Lions play great coverage down the field, Patricia has learned it with the Pats. So Hardman couldn't shake free. If I'm weak at WR in a standard league and expected to lose, I wouldn't sit him next week just to punish him for this horrible dud.

Of all people, Darrel Williams killed this dude. He’s taking those 4-5 receiving catches away from Mecole the past two games

Mecole and Darrel don’t compete for the same targets.   Mahomes just wasn’t vintage Mahomes yesterday-  which will happen time to time.   We’ve gotten so spoiled seeing him throw up 4+ tds and 400 yards weekly.  

 

All the credit in the world to the Lions D.   Very impressive
