#1 : 2005 Chris Chambers – 82 catches, 1,118 yards, 11 touchdowns

One of the more fondly remembered pass catchers in modern Miami Dolphins history, Chris Chambers enjoyed some of the best wide receiver seasons that the franchise has ever seen.

Chambers had the best season of his career in 2005, eclipsing 1,000 yards for the only time, catching 11 touchdowns, and doing so while being thrown passes from Gus Frerotte and Sage Rosenfels.

Those 11 touchdown receptions were good enough to be tied with Hines Ward for second-most in the league, behind Marvin Harrison and Steve Smith, who both finished with 12. Chambers’ 13.6 yards per reception was better than guys like Torry Holt and Reggie Wayne.

Chambers and the running back duo of Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams kept the Dolphins’ offense afloat in 2005, and their defense was able to propel them to a 9-7 record, finishing a game back of the Patriots for the division crown. It was the only time that Chambers qualified for the Pro Bowl.
