The best Dolphin this season at his job, the best at his position in franchise history, agrees with the numbers: this is the best season of his career.
“Definitely. I think I’ve made the most of the opportunities I’ve had,” Dolphins punter Brandon Fields said. “The guys in front of me have blocked well and have covered really well, too.”
Without benefit of a dome or high altitude, Fields leads the NFL with a 51.6 gross punting average and his 43.6 net average is second to New Orleans’ Thomas Morstead’s 45.2.
And, before 2012, Fields’ best season was 2011.
He set franchise records for most punts inside the 20 (32); net punting average in a season (41.1, raising his own record by 1.3 yards); gross punting average in a season (48.8, raising John Kidd’s record by 2.5 yards); and added to his record for career gross punting average (45.7).
