40 Packers Stats Until Kickoff-August 21 (#20)

(From August 1 until the first regular season game against the Seattle Seahawks on September 10, we’ll give you a daily dose of Packers stats.)

For the third consecutive season, the Packers had a player gain 300 or more yards rushing and 300 or more yards receiving in the same season. Ty Montgomery had 457 rushing yards and 348 receiving yards in 2016. James Starks reached 300-300 in 2015; Eddie Lacy did it in 2014.

Sixteen different Packers players have reached the 300-300 rushing/receiving stat in the club’s history, accomplishing it 30 times. Leading the way is Ahman Green who did it five times in his career with the Pack. Donny Anderson and Gerry Ellie each did it four times with the Packers, while Edgar Bennett did it in three seasons.

Bennett and Ellis are the only two Packers to have a 600-600 season (600 yards rushing and 600 yards receiving) for Green Bay. Ellis in 1983 had 696 yards rushing and 603 yards receiving; Bennett in 1995 rushed for 1067 yards and added 648 yards receiving to his stat line.

If we look at career numbers, the Packers have three players who reached the 2000-2000 stat in rushing yards and receiving yards in their career with Green Bay. They are:
Dorsey Levens, 3937 rushing yards, 2079 receiving yards
Ahman Green, 8322 rushing yards, 2726 receiving yards
Gerry Ellis, 3826 rushing yards, 2514 receiving yards.
