KJ Hamler

Statistically, I think KJ Hamler will have what some may call a disappointing season.

This is not how I would personally view it, but from a return from investment statistical outlook, it says disappointment. Conext maters.

In an offense that would be loaded with targets, outside, inside, and outta the backfield, Hamler will only be able to get a slice of the pie. One other area Hamler should product in 2021 is via the return game.

I’d only have Hamler returning punts, leaving kick-offs to Tyrie Cleveland. This doesn’t put Hamler through all the risks but ensures production off of his athleticism. With limited snaps to get the ball in his hand on offense, he takes over roster cut, Diontae Spencer’s, role.

Hamler is a playmaker, having his 4.28 speed getting the offense going via return could jumpstart the not talked about enough aspect, field position.

If KJ Hamler had 38-45 receptions for 500 yards and 6 offensive touchdowns, to pair with 2-3 return touchdowns, would that be enough?

I’d say so.
