Again, should there even be an explanation?
Tyreek Hill is second in the NFL in receptions, is fifth in receiving yards, and is tied for fourth in receiving touchdowns. Hill is having an other-worldly year, even for his obscene standards. Through 11 games, he is 3 receptions away from his career-high in receptions for a single season. This increase in targets and receptions has undoubtedly led Hill’s stats to take off. On pace for a 1,500-yard season (career-high), Hill continues to set himself apart as one of the most dynamic players in the entire NFL.
Sitting at fourth in receiving yards per game, what may seem statistically like a down year for Hill is still good enough to be a Top-5 receiver in this league. And with 7 weeks to go, Hill seems like a safe bet to vault over the competition and finish even higher towards the Top-3 in the league. Even as other pass catchers in Kansas City falter, Hill remains a constant threat no matter the coverage or double teams he sees.
A five-time Pro Bowler with 4 All-Pro selections and an All-Decade team selection to boot, Hill, like Kelce, will continue to be a Pro Bowl candidate for as long as he feels like it.
