Dolphins receiver Tyreek Hill wanted more. He’s getting it.

Hill continues to be on a record pace. With 143 receiving yards on Sunday at Miami, Hill now has the most receiving yards in NFL history through nine games.

His 1,104 yards surpass the 1,073 yards generated by Rams receiver Isaac Bruce in 1995. It also puts Hill on pace for 2,085 yards for the season, which would best the single-season record of 1,964 (Calvin Johnson, 2012) by more than 120 yards.

Given that 1,964 yards equates to 122.75 yards per game in a 16-game season, 2,087 would short-circuit any attempt to put a 17-game asterisk on a record season from Hill.

At this rate, Hill quite possibly will get it done. He’s officially more than halfway to 2,085.

  1. Its been a lot of fun watching Hill and Waddle run all over the field. NFL defenses have not found an answer yet

  2. These kind of stats are dumb. No one cares, or will remember, who had the most stats “after 9 games”.

  3. Lots of people eating crow after seeing what Tyreek has done through the first half of the season.

    Too bad karma will keep him from winning anything

    —————

    Didn’t he win a super bowl??

  5. Kc fans insisted that hill would miss catching passes from mahomes and that his stats would plummet. Miami “fans” whined that tua would not be able to get the ball to hill because he had no arm. They were both wrong

  6. Hill is a monster. Might have been hubris with the Chiefs not signing him. And, as I predicted, Tua is playing great. Might see a Miami-KC AFC Championship game.

  7. Hill is great, but he’s killing it statistically because of Waddle. He’s one of the best WRs in the league, but having Waddle on the other side just makes him that much harder to contain. They can run max protect and trust that Waddle or Hill will win. Nice luxury to have.
