Richard ranked ninth in the NFL with 708 combined return yards and should be the primary dual returner against Houston.

Harris should be the primary dual returner but injuries have forced him to share both duties of late.

Roberts finished the 2016 season just seven yards short of 1000 combined return yards.

Grant has been the primary dual returner of late but we expect him to share punt returns and possibly kickoffs.

The Seahawks signed Hester this week and the main reason is to handle the dual returns.

Hunt had a 39-yard kick return against Oakland back in Week 11 but is averaging just 19.4 yards on eight other returns.

He has resumed his primary punt return duties but it would not surprise us if he retakes the dual return role this week.

Montgomery has been the one constant on kick returns even though he has shared the duties with others.

Toussaint is the primary kick returner heading into the playoffs but Miami does kick short kickoffs on occasion.

Drake averaged 30.5 yards on 13 kick return attempts this year so he may get a chance to handle a few kickoffs.

Washington may line up as the up or secondary kick return option thus he will see limited opportunities if any at all.

WR Andre Roberts is dealing with a shoulder injury so Jones may get a chance to handle some kickoffs and/or punts.

He began sharing kick return duties with RB Ty Montgomery back in Week 16 but no guarantees he does so here.

He will likely be the up or secondary kick return option thus we only return a kick if it is short or WR Dwayne Harris gets hurt.

Brown averaged 9.3 yards on 15 punt returns while Miami allowed 8.1 yards on 31 punt returns this year.

Janis has been on of three kick returners for Green Bay this past month but he is more of an up or secondary option.

WR Randall Cobb has handled punt return duties in spotted situations but Hyde remains the primary punt returner.

With WR Sammie Coates dealing with a hand injury Hamilton has been the secondary kick returner for Pittsburgh.

The Seahawks signed WR Devin Hester so Richardson might not partake on kickoffs if Hester is active.

McKissic will be the up or secondary kick returner as Seattle signed WR Devin Hester this week.

Fuller might handle a punt return or two but only if rookie RB Tyler Ervin gets injured against Oakland.

22

Eli Rogers [R]

Rogers will only handle punt returns if WR Antonio Brown gets hurt so he is a very risky choice here.

Carrie will handle punts only if RB Jalen Richard is hurt or the Raiders want a fair catch deep in their own territory.

Landry was used sparingly on punt returns near the end of the season but we expect him to handle a few in wild-card game.

The Giants may turn to him for a few punt returns due to his ability to bust off a long return or two.
