Odell Beckham Wants To Reach 2,000 Receiving Yards

Nov 30, 2018 8:25 AM

Odell Beckham, Jr. reached the 1,000-yard mark last Sunday for the fourth time in his five-year career.

Beckham has 74 receptions for 1,017 yards and five touchdowns in 11 games.

"Like I said, it's not a down year. My numbers are still my numbers," said Beckham, who isn't impressed with his numbers. "I guess that is where my mindset is different than everybody else. I expect way higher of myself.

"I expect ... I'm trying to reach 2,000 yards. I'm trying to go for 20 TDs. One-hundred receptions is tatted on me. Those are goals that hopefully in my career and future, along with championships and winning, because numbers don't mean anything without winning. You can go home with 300 yards in a game with an L -- it's not going to feel good.

"So it's really all about winning, and I just feel like I could've had a better year so far but this is where I'm at. You just have to deal with that, keep pushing to keep getting better day by day, work at your craft. That is all I can really do."

No player has ever recorded 2,000 receiving yards in a single season. Calvin Johnson holds the NFL record with 1,964 yards, set in 2012.

Ertz is also on pace for 1,300 yards. No tight end has surpassed that yardage total and caught 100 passes in NFL history.

Michael Thomas Has Unprecedented Catch Rate

Nov 20, 2018 8:43 AM

Drew Brees is getting a lot of recognition as the potential NFL MVP this season.

Michael Thomas, however, is having a season unlike any wide receiver in history.

Thomas has caught 82 of the 91 passes he's been targeted on. His 90.1% completion rate is absolutely unprecedented for a 1,000-yard wide receiver.

Football Outsiders has target stats dating back to 1986, and the highest catch rate for any 1,000-yard wide receiver in the NFL since 1986 came when John Taylor (San Francisco 49ers) caught 80 percent of his passes in 1989, when he caught 60 passes for 1,077 yards.

Patrick Mahomes became the first to throw six touchdowns passes in a Monday night game.
