Roughly 1180 yeards

#### Explanation:

Total yards will equal the Total Running Yards plus Total Receiving Yards.

The Total Running Yards can be found by taking his average per carry times the number of carries:

$4.6 \text{yrd"/cancel"carry" xx 167 cancel"carry} = 768.2$ yards

The Total Receiving Yards can be found the same way:

$10.2 \text{yrd"/cancel"catch" xx 40 cancel"catch} = 408$ yards

$768.2 + 408 = 1176.2 \cong 1176 \cong 1180$ yards (depending on how rough an estimate you want)
