The Jaguars could really use some more help from the return games to help set up the offense with better starting position.  RB Deji Karim does the heavy lifting on kickoff returns for the Jaguars.  He has returned 20 kickoffs for 468 yards (23.4 avg) so far this year for the Jaguars.  Montell Owens (1 return for 13 yards) and Zach Potter (1 return for 0 yards) have also gotten chances to return kickoffs but they have not done much.  Rookie WR Cecil Shorts (12 returns for 50 yards, 4.2 avg) and WR Michael Thomas (8 returns for 49 yards, 6.1 avg) have handled the punt returns this year for the Jags.  The Jaguars have returned 22 kickoffs for 481 yards (21.9 avg) and 20 punts for 99 yards (5.0 avg) so far this year and that’s pretty pathetic!
