Answer:

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 "yrd"/cancel"carry" xx 167 cancel"carry" = 768.2# yards

The Total Receiving Yards can be found the same way:

#10.2 "yrd"/cancel"catch" xx 40 cancel"catch"=408# yards

#768.2+408=1176.2~=1176~=1180# yards (depending on how rough an estimate you want)
