It’s no secret that getting exposure to high scoring offenses is a great way to land elite fantasy options. Think of someone like Julio Jones for the Atlanta Falcons. They have been one of the most pass-heavy teams over the past few years, so it makes sense that they would field an elite pass-catching option for fantasy purposes.

Using that same train of thought, let’s explore the fantasy outlook for two wide receivers who are poised to erupt heading into their sophomore seasons. Both are on incredibly exciting offenses tied to young, dynamic quarterbacks. One team scores the bulk of its points through the air, and the other fields one of the most prolific ground attacks in football.

Currently, these wideouts have distinctly different prices, but both could see their respective values skyrocket after this season. Let’s take a closer look.

Mecole Hardman – Best Ball ADP WR42

The first sophomore wide receiver currently resides on the roster of the reigning Super Bowl Champions. Mecole Hardman is an intriguing fantasy prospect heading into his second season based on the incredible numbers he posted on limited volume as a rookie.

The Kansas City Chiefs selected Hardman in the second round, making him the fifth wideout taken in the 2019 draft. At the time, there were off-the-field issues surrounding fellow wide receiver Tyreek Hill, and the Chiefs were reportedly looking to draft a similarly styled prospect in Hardman. For his part, Hardman had an uninspiring collegiate career but did play his rookie season at 21 years old, which has shown to be a reliable indicator of future success.

The Chiefs have one of the most prolific aerial attacks in the league, spearheaded by the $500 million man himself. Patrick Mahomes has a plethora of weapons at his disposal and utilized them last season. In addition to elite tight end Travis Kelce, here is how the wide receiver room looked in 2019.
