When the Kansas City Chiefs traded for Kadarius Toney from the New York Giants a few weeks ago, there was instant excitement about the possibilities of what the dynamic playmaker could accomplish in an offense as lethal as the Chiefs'

Kadarius Toney New Role

After scoring a touchdown in a really solid Week 10 perfroamnce, Toney will now have an even more expanded and exicting role on the team. Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub announced that Toney will be the team's punt returner moving forward.

Toney is one of the most shifty, elusive and dangerous open-field players in the league. His athleticism is some of the best we've seen, like a human joystick. Although Toney's abilities and talent have never been in question, his health has, though. Whether true or not, you have to imagine it had something to do with the Giants giving up on a first-round pick in just his second NFL season, on top of some rumors of potential rifts behind the scenes.

Regardless, early returns seem to be paying off for both Toney and the Chiefs, and moving him into this additional role will provide him with even more opportunity to show what he can do

Toney and the Chiefs are preparing for a Week 11 matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers, where they are 5.5-point road favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
