With only four games to go in the regular season, will the Green Bay Packers have any player reach 1,000 yards rushing or receiving in 2022?

The last time the Packers didn’t have a player hit the 1,000-yard milestone in either rushing or receiving was in 2017.

That year, Aaron Rodgers missed nine games due to a broken collarbone.

So, can one of Green Bay’s running backs or receivers hit 1,000 yards before the regular season comes to an end?

Packers rushing leaders 2022

  • Aaron Jones: 164 attempts, 847 yards, two touchdowns, 5.2 yards per attempt
  • AJ Dillon: 143 attempts, 624 yards, three touchdowns, 4.4 yards per attempt

Aaron Jones has a great opportunity to hit 1,000 rushing yards for the third time in his career. Jones only needs another 153 rushing yards to reach 1,000, which is an average of a little over 38 per game.

Jones is capable of putting up 153 yards in one game.

It will be tougher for AJ Dillon to reach the milestone, as he needs to average 94 rushing yards per game. But with a big performance or two, you never know.

Packers receiving leaders 2022

  • Allen Lazard: 45 receptions, 620 yards, five touchdowns
  • Christian Watson: 25 receptions, 401 yards, seven touchdowns
  • Robert Tonyan: 45 receptions, 372 yards, one touchdown
  • Randall Cobb: 26 receptions, 349 yards, one touchdown
  • Aaron Jones: 48 receptions, 328 yards, four touchdowns
  • Romeo Doubs: 31 receptions, 314 yards, three touchdowns

It seems unlikely Green Bay will have a 1,000-yard wide receiver this season.

No matter how dominant Christian Watson has been over the past four games, he is still 599 yards away from 1,000. But he will be a candidate to reach that milestone next season.

Green Bay’s only realistic candidate for 1,000 receiving yards is Allen Lazard, but he will need to get a move on. Lazard needs another 380 receiving yards, which is 95 yards per game.

With four games remaining, it looks like the Packers won’t have a 1,000-yard receiver this season.
