Former Clemson standout Deandre "Nuk" Hopkins had an impressive sophomore campaign with 76 receptions on 127 targets for 1210 yards, six touchdowns and a long of 76.

The 1210 yards accounted for 35% of the Texans' receiving yards which was the most in the entire league. He would have probably accounted for even more yardage if not for the Texan's rotational quarterback play of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, Ryan Mallett and Tom Savage.

Hopkins also averaged 75.6 yards per game and had an superb yardage per catch average of 15.9.

Packers' Jordy Nelson came in second percentage-wise in the NFL at 34.2% of his team's total receiving yards with 1,519 yards.

was ranked #25 on the statistical list with 982 yards and 25.5% of his team's receiving yards. Not bad for a first year player.

Note - Giant's Odell Beckham had 29% of his team's yardage despite missing a quarter of the season.
