3rd best season by a Buffalo Bills WR: Andre Reed – 1989

Stats: 88 receptions, 1312 yards, 82 YPG, 9 touchdowns

Andre Reed is arguably the greatest receiver in Buffalo Bills history, having been named to seven Pro Bowls during his time in Buffalo. He was no slouch in the big game either, with his 323 receiving yards being the third-highest total in Super Bowl history – only behind Jerry Rice and Lynn Swann.

Pro Bowls and Super Bowl records aside, Reed was also named All-Pro twice, in 1989 and 1990. His 1989 season was perhaps his best performance as a pro, racking up 1,312 yards and nine scores on 88 catches. His receiving total was good for fifth in the NFL that year, and he only trailed behind Sterling Sharpe in terms of receptions.

Reed’s 1,312 yards were the highest total in his career; the closest he has ever gotten to eclipsing that record was in 1994 when he delivered a 1,303-yard effort. But at the very least, his All-Pro year proved that last season (when he had 968 receiving yards and six touchdowns, en route to the Pro Bowl) wasn’t a fluke.
