    Faulk 41 Receiving Yards from All Time NFL RB Record

    Marshall Faulk is now 41 receiving yards away from becoming the all time leading NFL Running Back in that category. Faulk now needs only 41 yards to pass Larry Centers for #1 all time.

    I could not find an official list for this statistic on the Internet, so I researched the below RBs records individually, based on my familiarity with the players. I have confirmation that Centers is #1 and Faulk is #2, but I was wondering if anyone could think of any other RBs that may be amongst the leaders in the table below.

    I am interested in any RBs with more than 4000 receiving yards, that spent their entire career at RB. Players like Elroy Hirsch and Charley Taylor started at RB, but played most of their careers at WR.

    All Time Leading Receiving Yardage for NFL RBs


    Player Receptions Yards Average TD
    Larry Centers 826 6797 8.2 28
    Marshall Faulk 747 6757 9.0 36
    Ronnie Harmon 581 6065 10.4 24
    Lenny Moore 363 6039 16.6 48
    Keith Byars 610 5661 9.3 31
    Eric Metcalf* 541 5572 10.3 31
    Frank Gifford 367 5434 14.8 43
    Marcus Allen 587 5411 9.2 21
    Roger Craig 566 4911 8.7 17
    Herschel Walker 512 4859 9.5 21
    John L Williams 546 4656 8.5 19
    Walter Payton 492 4538 9.2 15
    Thurman Thomas 472 4458 9.4 23
    Ricky Watters 467 4248 9.1 13
    Tony Galbreath 490 4066 8.3 9

    *Played a lot of WR as well as RB

    Of everyone that played in the GSOT era, is there any doubt that Marshall Faulk is a lock for the Hall of Fame in Canton?

    Hey Milan I see you are 14 years old. How long have you been a Rams fan? It's cool to see some young people jump on the Ram train.

    Oh and on topic Faulk is a 1st ballot lock for the HoF. In my mind Faulk is arguably in the top 5 running backs of all time.

    Been A Rams fan for close to 4 years now I was watching the Superbowl when I was like 11 or so with the Rams and Pats, and I was only watching it so I could see an hour special episode of Malcolm In The Middle , I started liking them then, but I've been watching seriously since last season and know more than all my friends about the history and all of that of the NFL (Not trying to brag).


    But back on topic Marshall's going to easily get this Record, 41 Receiving yards is one or two games, in a backups case maybe 3.

    Re: Faulk 41 Receiving Yards from All Time NFL RB Record

    Faulk is without question, a 1st ballot HOFer. He's currently....

    4th on the all-time yards from scrimmage list (Rice, E. Smith, Payton)
    1st on the single season yfs list (1999, 2429 yfs)
    4th on the all-time TD list (Rice, E. Smith, Allen)
    2nd on the single season TD list (2000, 26 TDs)
    6th on the all-time rushing TD list
    10th on the all-time rushing yards list

    Of the 18 RBs with at least 10,000 rushing yards, Faulk is 6th with a 4.33 ypc.
    1. Jim Brown 5.22 ypc
    2. Barry Sanders 4.99 ypc
    3. OJ Simpson 4.67 ypc
    4. Eric Dickerson 4.42 ypc
    5. Walter Payton 4.35 ypc
    6. Marshall Faulk 4.33 ypc
