Hill’s historic tempo
Hill is on target to set a brand new report for receiving yards in a single season — and any time on the shelf will ding his probabilities of surpassing Calvin Johnson‘s 11-year-old mark.
Hill has an NFL-best 902 receiving yards from solely seven video games performed. This places him on tempo for two,191 yards over the course of the season — which might shatter Johnson‘s report of 1,964 from the 2012 marketing campaign. Hill is already one amongst a handful of receivers in historical past to ring up greater than 1,700 yards in a single season, and an damage that has the potential to rule him out for a number of video games will damage his probabilities of repeating such a feat.
