With the NFL Preseason set to begin in August, sportsbooks are releasing a large catalog of NFL futures and season-long prop markets. That includes a market to lead the league in receiving yards, where Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson is the favorite, having said in training camp he wants to post the NFL’s first 2,000-yard season by a wideout.

Will he lead the league, or will it be somebody else further down the most receiving yards odds board?

2022 NFL Most Receiving Yards Odds

Below are the best available prices for each player to lead the NFL in receiving yards in 2022 across legal sports betting apps in your state. Click on the odds to bet now. 

The Favorites

Atop the odds board to lead the NFL in receiving yards over the course of the 2022 regular season is Justin Jefferson (). After a tremendous 2020 rookie campaign, where his 1,400 receiving yards ranked fourth, Jefferson improved upon his rookie numbers by recording more than 1,600 receiving yards last year, second only to a historic season from Rams receiver Cooper Kupp.

After an incredible 2021 season that consisted of nearly 2000 yards and 16 touchdowns, Cooper Kupp () is next on the board to lead the NFL in receiving yards in consecutive seasons. Kupp returns to a Super Bowl winning offense, and with the departure of Rams No. 2 WR Robert Woods this offseason, Kupp could be able to match last year’s target share

Former College Teammates Round Out Next Tier

The next name below Justin Jefferson and Cooper Kupp is second-year Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase ().

When Bengals rookie Quarterback Joe Burrow went down with both an ACL and an MCL injury in the middle of his 2020 rookie season, many within the Bengals organization believed that improving their offensive line was the only way forward to protect its biggest asset. They opted to draft Chase, and the former LSU Tiger shined with his college teammate. Chase put up nearly 1,500 receiving yards in his rookie season en route to the Bengals reaching the final game as a Super Bowl longshot.

Elsewhere, many fear former Green Bay WR Davante Adams will see his () production slip without Aaron Rodgers this season. The market seems to disagree, as he is reunited with former Fresno State teammate Derek Carr.

Adams has put up more than 1,300 yards in three of his last four seasons, and while Aaron Rodgers certainly played a big part in his very successful career thus far, it may not take long for Davante to establish chemistry with his new quarterback.

Middle Tier

Bills receiver Stefon Diggs () and Dallas Cowboy Ceedee Lamb () are also prime candidates to cash in this market. After leading the league with more than 1,500 receiving yards in 2020, Diggs slipped to eighth last year.

In 2022, Diggs returns to one of the league’s top offenses, and with the emergence of Gabriel Davis () as one of Josh Allen’s top targets at the end of last season, secondaries are going to have their hands full defending these two. Diggs should once again finish the season as one of the league’s top receivers.

With the trade of Amari Cooper () to the Browns, Lamb goes from a 1b receiving option in this Cowboys offense to an undisputed No. 1 receiver. He’ll be Dak Prescott’s top target entering the 2022 season. After recording more than 1,100 yards in only his second season, Lamb’s incredible athleticism and play-making ability make him a serious contender to lead the NFL in receiving yards in 2022.

Dolphins WR Tyrek Hill (), and his former Chiefs teammate Travis Kelce () both enter the 2022 season with a ton of upside. Both Hill and Kelce set up as top targets this season in their respective offenses, giving both upside in this market.

Behind just Cooper Kupp as the biggest breakout star of the 2021 season, 49ers dual-threat athlete Deebo Samuel () enters the 2022 season looking to build upon last year’s 1,400 receiving yards. For a guy who doubled as a halfback, Deebo is once again projected to be one of the league’s best wide receivers for his fourth season in the NFL. In the last year of his rookie deal, Samuel certainly has incentive to shine this season.

Longshots

The former Titans WR is coming off an inconsistent and injured 2021 campaign. AJ Brown () was traded on draft day to the Eagles and is likely Jalen Hurts’ top target. With defenses also having to worry about Devonta Smith, AJ should revert back to his 2020 form where he put up more than 1,000 receiving yards to cap off an excellent rookie season.

His incredible stature and athleticism should quickly remind people why he was such a highly touted receiver prospect out of Ole Miss.

With Allen Robinson () signing with the the LA Rams, Darnell Mooney () looks to be the clear No. 1 target for Bears QB Justin Fields. With Mooney’s speed and impressive ability to separate in coverage, I see Fields throwing many deep balls his way this season.

Mooney is the No. 1 option on a young offense poised to break out if Justin Fields finds success in Chicago. Darnell Mooney could play a massive role in getting him there.
