Ja'Marr Chase makes a catch and carries the ball in the Super Bowl

The addition of a 17th regular-season game helped 26 pass-catchers hit the 1,000-yard mark. Yet the goal for every wide receiver and tight end isn’t just to cross the four-digit barrier; it’s to hopefully finish as the NFL’s leader in receiving yards.

Cooper Kupp of the Los Angeles Rams reeled in a league-best 1,947 receiving yards in 2021, 18 yards shy of passing Calvin Johnson’s all-time record. So the bar for playmakers like Ja’Marr Chase, Justin Jefferson, and Davante Adams is extraordinarily high heading into the new season.

Here’s a look at the latest betting odds for most receiving yards in the upcoming NFL season, along with some of the best bets to consider.

Cooper Kupp (+800)


Kupp finished his legendary 2021 campaign with over 300 more receiving yards than any other player. Yet the Rams star enters the year with the same odds to lead the league as Jefferson and Chase.

It was obvious to anyone watching LA last season that Kupp and Matthew Stafford have exceptional chemistry. The two stars thrived in Sean McVay’s pass-happy offense and should do so again, especially with Robert Woods and Odell Beckham Jr. both gone and only Allen Robinson replacing them.

Calvin Johnson is the last player to lead the league in receiving yards in back-to-back seasons, but only Kupp has come close to reaching Megatron’s numbers. Barring a huge season from another receiver or a dropoff in production from Kupp, the Super Bowl MVP should be well positioned to achieve the repeat.

Ja’Marr Chase (+800)

While Kupp is being undervalued on the betting market, there are still other receivers with a real shot at overthrowing him. Among them, Chase is the best option.

In his rookie year, Chase finished fourth with 1,455 receiving yards. However, he racked up those yards with just 81 total receptions, 42 less than third-place Davante Adams and 64 less than Kupp. Yet his 18.0 yards per catch was bested only by Deebo Samuel, a player the San Francisco 49ers may deploy in the backfield quite frequently.

The Cincinnati Bengals are loaded at receiver, with Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd serving as additional weapons for Joe Burrow. But with how much Burrow throws the ball and the chemistry he has with his college and professional teammate Chase, the Offensive Rookie of the Year is a legitimate candidate for the receiving yards title.

Travis Kelce (+2000)

The Kansas City Chiefs have a new-look receiving core after trading Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins. Among all the players set to split the 1,200+ receiving yards Hill is leaving behind, Kelce figures to grab the lion’s share.

Even with Cheetah leading the team in receiving, the veteran tight end racked up 1,125 yards on 92 catches, good for 14th and 13th in the NFL, respectively. Both of those totals should rise in 2022 as long as the great Patrick Mahomes continues to lead the huddle each Sunday.

Kelce, who’s hit the 1,000-yard threshold in each of the last six seasons, managed to have over 1,400 yards in 15 games in 2020. An average like that over 17 games could make the former Cincinnati Bearcat the first tight end to lead the league in receiving.

Other Longshots

Despite Kelce’s greatness, Mark Andrews (+3000) actually led all tight ends in receiving with 1,361 yards, the sixth-most in the NFL. With Marquise Brown off to Arizona, Andrews could be in an even better position this year, even though his best performances came when Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson was sidelined.

About an hour south of Andrews, Terry McLaurin (+5000) is ready for a big year with the Washington Commanders. The former Ohio State standout has strung together back-to-back thousand-yard seasons and now goes from Taylor Heinicke at quarterback to Carson Wentz, an upgrade that should ensure an excellent stat line in his fourth year.
