It may be unfair to generalize this group to a single rating, but so far, Washington's special teams have made a solid turnaround from the debacle that took the field to begin the season.
Sav Rocca, while dealing with an injury, has been playing a tad below average at 44.4 yards per punt. But punt coverage has been excellent, so far. Niles Paul has made a few eye-popping stops.
The return game has been lacking, so far, mainly because Brandon Banks isn't getting many chances with good blocking, but he hasn't done with his the chances he does get to warrant his reputation as a return specialist.
In the days of Billy Cundiff, every field goal seemed to be a disaster waiting to happen. Kai Forbath has been perfect in two games and looks the part of an NFL kicker. His biggest concern was getting good distance on kickoffs—something he struggled with at UCLA—but so far, that hasn't been a big issue outside of one play against Minnesota.
Out of all three parts of the team, this group has made the biggest improvements, thus far. Now, they're still far from being a dominant unit, but the pieces are in place for this group to become successful for the remainder of the season.
