The Kansas City Chiefs acquired wide receiver Mecole Hardman and a seventh-round draft pick in 2025 from the New York Jets for a sixth-round draft pick on 2025.

What does it give the Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs have struggled to find consistent production from their wide receivers this season, so bringing Hardman back makes sense. He knows the system and should have a better opportunity for playing time with Kansas City.

What does it give the New York Jets
For the Jets, this move is an admission of defeat in terms of the free agent acquisition of Hardman last off-season. Hardman was barely utilized by a Jets team that is all defense, little offense without injured QB Aaron Rodgers at present time.

Fantasy impact
Pick Hardman up if available in many fantasy leagues. He could quickly emerge as an important part of the Chiefs' offense again. He is definitely worth the gamble.
