A brief look at Alvin Kamara's historically unprecedented rookie season...

This is what Alvin Kamara did this year:

  1. Recorded 728 yards rushing and 826 yards receiving, only the 11th 700/800 season in NFL history and 3rd by a rookie (shared with Charley Taylor and Herschel Walker)

  2. Became the first player to match Herschel Walker's 500 rushing and 500 receiving yards over his first 11 career games in 1986

  3. Became the first non-quarterback to average over 7.0 yards per carry through 12 weeks since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970

  4. Led all running backs in receiving yards and ranked 2nd in receptions, behind Le'Veon Bell

  5. Led the league in yards-after-contact (244)

  6. Led the NFL and broke the rookie record for rushing yards per attempt (6.07, 3rd best since 1980)

  7. Broke the record for single-season yards per touch with at least 200 touches (7.7)

  8. Recorded the highest completion percentage of any receiver in the NFL with more than 70 catches this season (81% on 105 targets)

  9. Selected 2nd-team All-Pro

  10. With Mark Ingram, became the first pair of running backs to both record 1500+ yards in a single season or to be selected to the Pro Bowl together

He also led all rookies in TD's with 14. This kid just had a better rookie season than Adrian Peterson and he only started 3 games. No wonder he took AP's job....
