What a rookie year for Tyreek Hill. The Kansas City Chiefs rookie added his third AFC player of the week award after his 95-yard punt return against the Chargers last week.

Chiefs special teams coach Dave Toub was likely going to get head coach attention with or without Tyreek Hill but it sure didn’t hurt having the NFL’s best return man play for you.
This is going to be a big advantage in the postseason. Avoiding Tyreek will likely mean better field position for KC. Who will kick to him? I wouldn’t if I were facing the Chiefs. Everyone knows about him by now. Yet some teams continue to kick to him.
