Andrew Luck is the betting favorite to finish with the most passing yards in the NFL at +350 at the sportsbooks. Luck finished third in the NFL last year with 4,761 yards and seems to be getting better each year. The Colts added Andre Johnson this offseason to join TY Hilton, setting the stage for a ton of passing yards from the young quarterback.
Aaron Rodgers (+400) and Peyton Manning (+700) are also in the mix to be the NFL’s top passer this season.
While Rodgers is unquestionably one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, he has never cracked the top three in passing yards for a single season. Manning breezed by the competition for the passing title in 2013 with 5,477 passing yards and finished fourth in passing yards last season.
Other contenders include Matt Ryan (+1200), Eli Manning (+1200), Matthew Stafford (+1200), Tom Brady (+2000), Tony Romo (+2500) and Philip Rivers (+2800).
This news comes just days after Boyer’s NFL debut. He made five snaps during the Seahawks’ preseason game against the Broncos on Friday and before the game led the team onto the field while carrying an American flag.
“That was cool,” Boyer said after the game, via the Seahawks’ official website. “I was actually pretty emotional, just because I always think about my buddies who I fought with, or the ones who are overseas right now. And usually in college you don’t stay out there for the National Anthem, so that got to me too. That whole thing. But just knowing how many of those guys were watching, it’s really special.”
