The 'Most receiving yards in an NFL season' quiz

Anyone lucky enough to have Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp on their fantasy team knows that the 28-year-old is currently having the best season of his career, by far. What they may not realize, however, is that if Kupp can keep playing at his current pace, he could end up having the best statistical season ever for an NFL pass catcher. With the addition of a 17th regular-season game, Kupp is on pace for 1,964 yards and 22 touchdowns. The record for receiving yards in a season is exactly 1,964, while 23 is the record for TD receptions. And sure, if he breaks either record, skeptics will say that the new marks deserve to have an asterisk next to them. But regardless, there's no denying that Kupp is having an all-timer of a season no matter how many games he plays in 2021. 

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. At his current pace, Kupp would need just 7 more games to register a top 25 season in terms of receiving yardage. So with that in mind, how many of the NFL players with the most receiving yards in a season can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!
