Dolphin’s Tyreek Hill shook the NFL world when he stated that he would break 2,000 receiving yards this season. As much as it looks unrealistic, it could be possible for Hill.
The Dolphins’ star wideout said on his podcast “It needed to be said” back in July that he would break 2,000 receiving yards this season. And he turned in another 100-yard game on Sunday against the Panthers, grabbing six passes for 163 yards and a touchdown.
After six games, Hill has pulled in 42 catches on 49 targets for 814 yards and six touchdowns, averaging a ridiculous 19.4 yards per catch.
His target is 119 catches on 167 targets for 2,306 yards and 17 touchdowns.
17 receiving touchdowns have been reached several times throughout NFL history, with Randy Moss establishing the current NFL record with an unbelievable 23 touchdown catches in 2007.
But nobody has ever reached 2,000 yards in NFL history.
Hall of Famer Calvin Johnson has the most ever with 1964 yards in 2012. Cooper Kupp also came close two years ago with 1947 yards.
But, records are made to be broken, aren’t they?
The schedule tightens up with the Eagles and Chiefs coming up in the next three weeks with a return matchup with the Patriots. Both are tough lineups.
Hill also reached 119 catches last year, good for 18th on the all-time list for catches in a season. So, who knows? He could do more.
