- Tracking who leads the NFL in receiving yards in the 2022 season.
- Justin Jefferson leads after Week 17.
After Cooper Kupp, who entered the year with +8000 NFL odds to win MVP, put together a dominant 2021 to lead the NFL in receiving yards, it seemed he could’ve had an encore.
But the likes of Justin Jefferson of the Minnesota Vikings and Tyreek Hill of the Miami Dolphins had something to say about that. Regardless, there’s no shortage of talented wideouts currently playing in the NFL.

It wasn’t the best time for Justin Jefferson to put together his worst stat line of the season. The Minnesota Vikings wideout was held to just one catch for 15 yards in the team’s blowout loss to the Green Bay Packers. Still, the LSU product has an 84-yard lead in the race to lead the NFL in receiving yards and will finish the year against the Chicago Bears, who he torched for 154 yards earlier this season.
Tyreek Hill has maintained his position in the second spot for the Miami Dolphins. Even though Hill didn’t have a banner day against the New England Patriots, he still gained ground on Jefferson after catching four passes and tallying 55 yards and a touchdown. Hill will finish his regular season with a difficult matchup against the New York Jets, who held him to 47 yards in their first meeting.
Davante Adams took some time to settle with the Las Vegas Raiders, but he’s continued to be one of the most dominant wide receiver threats the league has ever seen. Adams jumped into the top three in receiving yards after having another dynamic day against the San Francisco 49ers, recording seven catches for 153 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
