It’s a wide-open race to lead the NFL in receiving yards this season.

Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf is currently the league leader, with 1,119 receiving yards. But six other players are within 100 yards of Metcalf.

Two Chiefs, Travis Kelce at 1,114 yards and Tyreek Hill at 1,079 yards, are next. In fourth place is Justin Jefferson at 1,039 yards, followed by the receiver he replaced in Minnesota, Buffalo’s Stefon Diggs, at 1,037 yards. Green Bay’s Davante Adams has 1,029 yards and Arizona’s DeAndre Hopkins has 1,019 yards.

While the rushing yardage lead is a two-man race between Derrick Henry and Dalvin Cook, the receiving yardage lead is likely to come down to several players in contention on the final Sunday of the season.

  1. With JJ not really playing much the first few games and DA being out with injuries it just shows how effective the two NFCN WR have been.

  2. Jefferson looks like the real deal. That was a great pick for Minnesota. Green Bay wanted him. There’s advantages to selecting before Green Bay so often. Parity works by design.

  3. Howie Drafted JJAWS instead. …….. let that sink in. Non eagles fans JJ Arcega-Whiteside no longer dresses for the Birds. Hasn’t in weeks.

  4. And just think the Eagles could have had Metcalf and Jefferson but Howie Roseman don’t know how to draft and he can’t tell talent either. It is no wonder why the Eagles are in such bad shape.

  5. It would be nice if Adams wins it inspite of missing 2.5 games. If he’d played those two games would it be a one person race?

  6. Stefon Diggs would easily be leading the league in yards, except for the Bills are so deep at receiver. Allen has so many options and he’s spreading the ball all over the place.

  7. Jefferson looks like the real deal. That was a great pick for Minnesota. Green Bay wanted him. There’s advantages to selecting before Green Bay so often. Parity works by design.

There’s advantages to selecting before Green Bay so often. Parity works by design ___ 1. Green Bay has drafted ahead of Minnesota 2 out of the past 3 years. 2. The pick used to select jefferson was from the diggs trade and had zero to do with original draft order. 3. Packer fans are the least knowledgeable fans out of any sport. Their dopey Packers always best mindset shows them as fools who are mocked everywhere
