Dolphins Wide Receiver Sets Amazing Record

The Miami Dolphins are getting all they could dream and more from wide receiver Tyreek Hill. The offseason acquisition has been beyond sensational, and he may even be on his way to an all-time year. His 1104 receiving yards are the most of all time through nine games of the regular season.
Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson had 974 receiving yards across his first nine games when he set the single-season record with 1964 yards in 2012. Before him, Jerry Rice held the record with 1848 receiving yards in his 1995 season. He had 876 yards across his first nine games.

Due to the 17-game season, Hill is now on pace for an absolutely baffling 2085 receiving yards in his first season with the Dolphins. Hill had already opened his career with six consecutive Pro Bowls, but he's somehow still getting better. The fact that he has jumped a level since departing a Kansas City Chiefs organization that featured future Hall of Famers in head coach Andy Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes speaks to his unreal talent.

Hill's impact on the Dolphins goes well beyond his own individual production. The attention he draws has allowed fellow wide receiver Jaylen Waddle to flourish: the second-year pass catcher has 812 receiving yards this season. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is also benefitting: his 282.9 passing yards per game are a career-high.
