Justin Hardy | Bears WR

The Bears signed Justin Hardy.

With Anthony Miller traded to Houston, Hardy will now compete for a role in the receiver room for the Bears. The East Carolina product did not play last season, but he spent his first five seasons with the Falcons after Atlanta took him in the fourth round of the 2015 draft.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy scores in Week 15 win.

Hardy caught three passes for 29 yards, including a five-yard touchdown grab in the second half of a 40-14 victory. The Falcons might continue rotating receivers more than usual over the final two weeks, but Hardy isn't worth strongly considering for the fantasy championship.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy scores against the Packers.

Hardy caught three passes for 30 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 14 loss, with the score coming on a 19-yarder down the deep middle part of the field at the end of the game. Hardy is a better real-life contributor for the Falcons than he is a recommended fantasy option right now.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy catches one pass against the Saints.

Hardy gained six yards on his lone reception in the Falcons' Week 12 loss. Hardy isn't a fantasy option as the No. 4 or No. 5 wide receiver for Atlanta, as he's a better real-life contributor.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy catches seven-yard pass in Week 10 loss.

It came on Hardy's only target of the game. The 26-year-old isn't a recommended fantasy option heading into a matchup with the Cowboys.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy caught two passes for 24 yards in Atlanta's win over the Giants.

Hardy was able to haul in both of his targets, but the passing game mostly ran through Julio Jones as everyone else saw the looks evenly distributed. The 26-year-old won't be a recommended fantasy option when the Falcons return from their Week 8 bye.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy catches three passes in Week 6.

Hardy was asked to step up in a bigger role after Calvin Ridley (ankle), and then Mohamed Sanu (hip), left the game; and he's shown he plays well when called upon for the Falcons. Hardy caught three passes for 33 yards, with a long of 17 yards, against the Buccaneers. If both Ridley and Sanu miss time, Hardy would offer FLEX appeal as someone that would draw a lot of one-on-one coverage opposite Julio Jones.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy catches one pass in Week 4.

Hardy gained four yards on his lone reception against the Bengals. With the addition and emergence of rookie Calvin Ridley, Hardy is not currently on the fantasy radar.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy doesn't catch a pass in Falcons' playoff loss.

Hardy was targeted one time in the loss to the Eagles. Right now, he isn't a recommended option for 2018 fantasy drafts.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy catches three-yard pass in win over the Rams.

It was his only reception of the game. Hardy could get more opportunities next Saturday against the top-seeded Eagles if the Falcons try to spread out their aggressive defense.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy caught two passes for 32 yards in Sunday's win over Carolina.

Hardy was forced into extended action when Taylor Gabriel went down, and he ended up with a career-high in yards for the season as a result. The third-year receiver finished with a 20/221/3 line in the regular season, and he will look to make some postseason plays for the Falcons beginning next Saturday night against the Rams.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy scores in win over the Bucs.

Hardy caught two passes for 33 yards, including a six-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter. He also had another chance in the end zone, but couldn't snatch a high pass in the second half. Hardy won't be a recommended fantasy option on Christmas Eve against the Saints.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy catches three passes against the Seahawks.

Hardy got involved early as a reliable target for Matt Ryan, and overall he gained 27 yards on his three receptions (four targets). Hardy does a good job with his role on offense, but he's a better real-life player than fantasy asset at the moment.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy scores in Week 11 win.

It was a three-yard touchdown in the back of the end zone, and Hardy finished with two receptions for seven yards and the score. He's not a fantasy option behind Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu, and Taylor Gabriel.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy catches two passes against the Panthers.

Hardy gained 26 yards on his two receptions, including a great clutch catch over the middle for 19 yards. Hardy's role just isn't big enough to be a reliable fantasy option right now.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy caught two passes for 21 yards in Sunday night's loss to New England.

Hardy isn't a fantasy option behind Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu, and Taylor Gabriel. The Falcons play the Jets in Week 8.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy catches all three targets against the Dolphins.

Hardy was a reliable target late in the game for Matt Ryan, with the Falcons trying to score a go-ahead touchdown or game-tying field goal. Overall, Hardy had three receptions for 34 yards in the loss. He's a real-life contributor to Atlanta, but it's difficult to trust Hardy in fantasy lineups.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy scores in Week 4 loss.

Hardy caught two passes for 12 yards, including a three-yard score in the fourth quarter to tie the game, but the Bills went on to kick two field goals and upset the Falcons in Atlanta. Hardy saw more playing time due to injuries at wideout, but he can remain on the waiver wire as Atlanta heads into their bye week.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy catches 19-yard pass in Week 2.

Hardy caught a nice in-breaking route deep in Packers' territory from Matt Ryan. While Hardy is a solid contributor in real life to Atlanta, he can't be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Justin Hardy scores against the Saints.

Hardy had four catches for 43 yards and a touchdown in Week 17. His sophomore regular season ends with 21 receptions for 203 yards and four touchdowns. He will look to make some big plays in the playoffs for Atlanta.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy catches back-shoulder touchdown in Falcons victory.

Hardy made a tough catch look easy as he reached out for a back-shoulder TD on the first drive of the game. He finished with two catches for nine yards and the touchdown. Hardy is a contributor to a great offense, but isn't a good fantasy option, even if Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu miss more time.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Hardy caught one pass for five yards in Sunday's loss.

He was targeted three times. Hardy is not a realistic fantasy option.

Justin Hardy | Bears WR

Justin Hardy caught three passes for 47 yards in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Hardy made a nice catch for one of his grabs, but with just 130 yards on the season, he is not a fantasy option.
