The highest punter in the league is averaging 52.2 (Lechler), and Baker is at 40. Lechler is a beast, and don't expect anyone to beat him out, but there are 4 Punters over 50 this year. 12 yards difference per punt is significant, No?
Any yet on average he gives10 yards to the returner every punt. Considering that Baker had 29% of his punts returned, Lechler has a fairly significant 61.8% of his punts returned. He also has a fairly low hang time (5.30) for his distance.
Lechler can boot it out the stratosphere, but he certainly gives returners the chance to get up a head of steam...
