Chiefs special teams coach says rules changes make kickoffs more like a punt

The league’s new kickoff rules will change many things for NFL teams, including what they look for in a returner.

Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub, one of the best in the business, said the rules have turned the kickoff into more of a punt play. The league made the changes in hopes of fewer high-speed collisions and thus fewer injuries.

Elite Drew Kaser Jersey The Bears had a void inside at left guard with Cody Whitehair and Kyle Long locking down the other interior positions. They fill that void with a first-round talent who should play his college position while Whitehair slides over. Daniels can pull well as an athletic blocker whose feet fit Mark Helfrich’s scheme.

The Lions get a back with a good combination of power and explosiveness with the hopes he can be a three-down option. With LeGarrette Blount adding to Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick, Johnson has a good chance to trump all three for heavy touches.

Cooper Kupp Game Jersey Nelson exited Week 6 as fantasy’s No. 6 scoring wide receiver (teammate Davante Adams was fifth), but ranked 82nd from that point forward (Adams missed two games but was still 20th). The massive drop in production raises serious questions as to whether or not Womens Travis Shaw Jersey Nelson is still an effective player at age 33 and if he can succeed without Rodgers throwing to him.

The good news for Nelson is that the Raiders are seriously lacking in terms of competition for targets. Amari Cooper is expected to be the go-to guy in the passing game, but the likes of Seth Roberts, Cordarrelle Patterson and Jared Cook are the primary names Nelson has to compete with as the roster stands. It’s possible Oakland adds offensive playmakers via free agency or the draft, but the new regime under coach Jon Gruden seems committed to the run.
