No. 4: P Drew Kaser

A 2016 sixth-round pick, Kaser is the only thing special about the Chargers’ special teams.

He’s averaging 49.6 yards per punt, fourth-best in the NFL. His long of 69 is tied for third-best in the league, and his five touchbacks on punts are tied for the most in the league. However, he’s tied for 16th with just 14 punts inside the 20, but an offense that struggles to get out of its own end more often than not has something to do with that.

Numbers aside, it’s simple: Kaser was very bad last season, putting the Chargers’ defense in terrible positions, and now Kaser is doing very well. I mean, how can I not put him here after doing something like this..
