Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs is off the injury report.

Diggs was not even listed on the Week 2 practice report after he was limited every day and eventually listed as questionable for the season opener last week. This bodes well for Diggs being closer to his usual self this week against the Packers, and you should feel safer about keeping him locked in your fantasy lineup.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (hamstring) is officially active for the Vikings.

While it was concerning that Diggs landed on the injury report and was not a full practice participant while dealing with a hamstring issue, he was fully expected to be active for today’s Week 1 matchup. Diggs should be downgraded slightly at less than 100%, but he’s still at least a strong FLEX option to open the season.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Week 1.

We would think Diggs will be good to go for the Vikings, but soft tissue injuries like this can be tricky. The good news is that Minnesota plays in the early games on Sunday, so his status will be known ahead of when most leagues have to make lineup decisions. Diggs will be a near must-start if he's active against the Falcons.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (hamstring) was officially a limited participant in today’s practice.

Diggs did not practice yesterday, so he's trending in the right direction for Sunday. We’ll let you know if Diggs is listed with a game designation when the final Week 1 injury report is released tomorrow.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (hamstring) officially did not practice today.

It’s only Wednesday, so hopefully this is just a precaution, but Diggs has dealt with some soft tissue injuries in the past. His status is at least worth monitoring the next couple of days.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs gets first 1,000-yard season, but Minnesota falls to Chicago, 24-10.

Diggs caught eight-of-ten targets for 47 yards and a touchdown. The 25-year-old ended up finishing with career-highs across the board (102/1,021/9), but anyone who watched knows the passing attack took a step back from 2017. Also, the 10.0 yards per reception were a career-low for Diggs. Hopefully an improved offensive line will lead to more explosive numbers—and more team success—in 2019.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs catches eight-yard score in win over the Lions.

Diggs also had another two-yard catch, finishing with just two grabs for ten yards. Fantasy owners should take the touchdown, though, and Diggs will hope for at least 26 yards next week against the Bears to reach 1,000 receiving yards for the first time in his career. Chicago allowed the 25-year-old to post a 13/136/1 line in November, but the defense will probably be more stout in the rematch. Consider Diggs a high-end WR2.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs scores against the Dolphins.

Diggs caught four passes for 49 yards and a touchdown along with one carry for nine yards in the Vikings' Week 15 victory. The score came on an eight-yard corner route where he was wide-open after a play-action fake. A lower volume passing attack under new offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski could cause issues for his value, but Diggs remains a strong option entering fantasy finals.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs leads the Vikings in Week 14 receiving.

Diggs caught four passes for 76 yards along with one carry for five yards in Minnesota's Monday night loss on the road to Seattle. The highlight of the game for Diggs, and perhaps the Vikings offense overall, was on a nice 48-yard reception where he leaped up and caught the ball in tight coverage on a go route—though it might have been a touchdown if Kirk Cousins didn't underthrow it. Next up, Diggs faces the Dolphins, who are likely to still be without top cornerback Xavien Howard (knee); Diggs will remain a solid fantasy option for the second week of the fantasy playoffs.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs catches five passes against New England.

Diggs gained 49 yards on his five receptions in the Vikings' loss. He was listed as questionable coming into the game and reportedly had his knee swell up overnight, but he looked pretty much as explosive as usual with the ball in his hands throughout the game. There were a couple times where he appeared to be in some discomfort, but hopefully he's fine and won't have any issue playing in Week 14 against the Seahawks. Assuming he's good to go, Diggs will be a strong fantasy option to open the fantasy playoffs.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (knee) is officially active for the Vikings.

Diggs’ knee reportedly swelled up overnight which put some doubt into his status while being listed as questionable, but he’ll suit up against the Patriots. There is some concern about Diggs potentially being a decoy, but he obviously has a ton of weekly upside, so there’s risk whether you bench him or put him in your lineup.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs' knee swelled up overnight, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Schefter says Diggs now has to test his knee pregame to determine if he's able to play today against the Patriots. We still expect Diggs will give it a go (even if he's just a decoy), but you should have a backup plan from the non-1:00 PM ET games in case Diggs is inactive. Also, it's worth noting that this could be a bit of an overreaction report, and Diggs could turn out to be fine for today's big game in Foxboro.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Diggs missed the last two days of practice before getting out there today, so the missed time might be a slight concern; but there isn’t much concern about Diggs missing Sunday’s big matchup in New England. If possible, try to get a backup plan from the later games in case Diggs isn’t active for the 4:25 PM ET kickoff, but you should be able to safely insert the talented receiver into Week 13 fantasy lineups.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs scores against the Packers.

Diggs caught eight passes (on a team-high 11 targets) for 77 yards and a touchdown along with one carry for 12 yards in the Vikings’ Sunday night win. The score came on a wheel route after a pick play freed him up for an easy wide-open pitch-and-catch. Next week, Diggs faces the Patriots, and it’ll be interesting to see how Bill Belichick defends Minnesota’s stacked offense. It’s possible New England tries to not allow Diggs to beat them, but there are a lot of guys to account for.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs gets going late, but Vikings fall to the Bears, 25-20.

Diggs caught 13-of-18 targets for 126 yards and a score, which came from five yards away in the fourth quarter. Chicago basically shutdown the entire Minnesota offense for the better part of the game, but the Vikings were able to at least make it interesting with a couple touchdown drives before an unsuccessful onside kick ended their comeback attempt. Diggs has now gone for lines of 10/119/1 and 13/126/1 over his past two outings, but he might see a lot of Jaire Alexander next Sunday night against the Packers, which likely keeps him on the WR2 side of the WR1/WR2 borderline.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (ribs) says he will play this week.

Diggs was on Ian Rapoport's "Rapsheet and Friends" podcast and told the NFL Network insider that "I know I will play" against the Bears on Sunday night. Diggs missed Week 9 against the Lions with his rib injury and then the Vikings just had a bye week in Week 10, so he's had enough time to heal and get back on the field. We'll update you if anything changes, but expect Diggs to be out there for a big NFC North matchup. As usual, he'll be a strong option in fantasy lineups.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (rib) is inactive against the Lions.

Diggs didn’t practice all week, so this is not a surprise. The Vikings have their bye next week, so Diggs will hopefully have plenty of time to heal up and face the Bears in Week 11. Adam Thielen is set for a ton of targets today against the Lions and will look to extend his 100-yard streak to eight games.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (rib) is listed as questionable for Week 9.

Diggs didn't practice all week, so there is legitimate concern about his status for Sunday's NFC North matchup with the Lions. However, Diggs did express optimism about playing, and a questionable designation instead of a doubtful designation is a positive sign. Diggs' Week 9 status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (rib) did not practice today.

Diggs also didn't practice yesterday, so there's reason for some concern about his Week 9 status. However, it's worth noting that Diggs did say he expects to play on Sunday. Nonetheless, he's probably headed for a questionable tag when the official injury report is released tomorrow, but hopefully he's able to get out there for at least a limited practice.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs has efficient night, but Vikings lose playoff rematch to the Saints.

Diggs caught ten passes (on 11 targets) for 119 yards and one touchdown, which came from one yard away on the team's opening drive. It was a promising rebound for Diggs after a couple quiet weeks, and he's now back on track with a season-long pace of 116/1,174/8 pace through eight games. We'll see if he can start producing more big plays next Sunday against the Lions, but Diggs is an excellent WR1/WR2 option.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs catches eight passes in Week 7.

Diggs couldn't get much going on his eight receptions, gaining just 33 yards against the Jets. He also had two carries for -7 yards. Diggs' 14 targets were a team-high, but it was again Adam Thielen (110 yards, touchdown) that was the top performer for the Vikings. Next week, Diggs faces the Saints team he was on the receiving end of the "Minneapolis Miracle" against in the Divisional Round last season.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs contained in Week 6 win.

Diggs caught three-of-five targets for 33 yards, also adding a nine-yard rush. The 24-year-old has taken a clear backseat to Adam Thielen (11/123/1) over the past month, but Diggs remains a difference-maker that's capable of exploding in any given week, and the Jets appear to be a favorable matchup next Sunday. Consider him a solid WR1 option for Week 7.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs totals over 110 yards in Vikings' win.

Diggs had yet another very solid game to start the season, working as a reliable target for Kirk Cousins. Diggs caught ten passes (11 targets) for 91 yards and added two carries for 25 yards against the Eagles. The fourth-year receiver catches everything with ease, and he now has at least nine receptions or a touchdown in every game aside from being shut down by Tre'Davious White in Week 3. Diggs might see some of Patrick Peterson next week, but he's obviously a great option in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs catches 11 passes against the Rams.

As usual, Diggs was a consistent, reliable receiver on all levels of the field for the Vikings, catching 11-of-15 targets for 123 yards. He had a long of 34 yards in the Thursday night loss. After four games, Diggs is now on pace for 111 receptions, 1,244 yards, and 12 touchdowns. Considering he was basically shut out by Tre'Davious White in last week's game, those numbers are certainly attainable.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs caught four passes for 17 yards in Minnesota's 27-6 loss to the Bills.

Diggs was completely shutdown by underrated star cornerback Tre'Davious White, but it didn't help that the Vikings had trouble blocking and failed to establish the running game (because they didn't even try to with four carries from their backs). We'll see if Diggs can bounce back against the Rams and their injured secondary, but Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh have serious game-wrecking potential on Thursday night. Still, Diggs probably needs to be in fantasy lineups as at least a midrange WR2.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs goes off in 29-29 tie with the rival Packers.

Diggs caught nine passes for 128 yards and two scores, also adding a two-point conversation and a one-yard rush. The 24-year-old has been no stranger to huge games against Green Bay, and it continued on Sunday with a big fourth quarter that included a three-yard touchdown and 75-yard touchdown. Diggs looks like an every-week WR1 and will probably avoid Tre'Davious White enough next week against the Bills to have another strong performance.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs scores in Vikings' win.

Diggs caught the first touchdown of Kirk Cousins' Minnesota career, as he got free on a 22-yard score on a go route down the left sideline in the second quarter. Overall, Diggs had three receptions for 43 receiving yards and the touchdown along with one rushing attempt for eight yards. Next week, Diggs gets a matchup against a Packers team he's had success against in the past, but Green Bay has improved at the cornerback spot this season.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs’ five-year contract extension is worth $72 million, according to multiple reports.

The fourth-year receiver is getting $40 million guaranteed, and the value of the deal can reach $81 million. This contract puts Diggs in the top ten for wide receivers, so the Vikings obviously expect big things from him moving forward. He’s an excellent bet for his first 1,000-yard season if he remains healthy this year. Diggs is going in the third for fourth round in most fantasy drafts.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs has agreed to a contract extension with the Vikings, according to multiple reports.

NFL Network was the first to report the news, and it's reportedly a five-year extension to keep Diggs with the team through the 2023 season. The former fifth-round pick has proven to be a steal by the Vikings back in the 2015 draft, as he's been one of the league's better receivers when healthy. Diggs has yet to reach 1,000 yards in a season, but he's had at least 720 yards in each of his first three seasons and has 200 receptions for 2,472 yards and 15 touchdowns in that span. Diggs is an all-around receiver with very good ability on jump-ball situations down the field despite standing at six-foot. Soft-tissue injuries have been the only concern with Diggs, but he'll again be a solid fantasy asset in 2018 and offers WR1 upside.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs, Vikings see their season end with blowout loss to the Eagles.

Diggs caught eight passes for 70 yards in the 38-7 defeat. Things couldn't have gone worse following last week's storybook finish, as the passing attack just couldn't get going in Philly. Diggs' fantasy value in 2018 will be dependent on the quarterback situation with all three of Minnesota's options set to hit free agency, but Sam Bradford would be the best signal-caller for him and Adam Thielen to put up big numbers. No matter who is under center, Diggs should be a strong WR2.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Wild finish in Winter Park: Vikings advance to NFC Championship with Stefon Diggs touchdown on final play of the game.

Diggs caught six passes for 137 yards and a score in the 29-24 victory, which looked hopeless with ten seconds to play until a sideline pass was caught by the star receiver, and he turned upfield to sprint for the game-winning touchdown from 61 yards away. It was absolute mayhem. Diggs will look to do a lot of damage against Philly's attackable secondary in the NFC Championship Game next Sunday.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs scores against Chicago.

Diggs caught six passes for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 victory, with the score coming on an in-breaking route to the post. Diggs put up a 64/849/8 stat line this season, and he missed a couple games with his groin injury that hampered him a bit earlier in the year. Diggs will now look to make an impact in the postseason for Minnesota.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs scores in Vikings' win.

Diggs was targeted a team-high eight times against the Packers, catching five passes for 60 yards and a touchdown (all team highs), along with a three-yard carry. The touchdown was on a crossing route deep in scoring territory, as Diggs gained control of the ball just in time before stepping out of bounds. Diggs should be a solid option against the Bears to close out the regular season next week.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs catches 20-yard touchdown in Week 15 win.

It came on a contested catch in the end zone, and Diggs finished with five receptions for 30 yards and the score. He also rushed once for seven yards. Diggs gets a good matchup with the Packers on Saturday night, and he should be ranked as a low-end WR2 for the fantasy championship.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs, Vikings come up short against the Panthers.

Diggs caught six passes for 64 yards, but was also on the receiving end of a Case Keenum interception in the fourth quarter that bounced off his helmet. It was a high throw, but Diggs will probably say he could have had it. Minnesota was still able to comeback and tie things up, but Cam Newton eventually led a game-winning touchdown drive. Diggs will likely remain a low-end WR2/FLEX option in Week 15 against Cincinnati.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs has quiet day in win over the Falcons.

Diggs was set up for a big day with top cornerback Desmond Trufant out for Atlanta, but he caught just two passes for 32 yards. He also rushed once for five yards. Case Keenum spread the ball around more than he has all season, and it led to him completing 18-of-18 passes in the second half of the win. Diggs could bounce back in Carolina next week, as they've struggled a bit in the back end recently. He's a WR2.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs catches five passes against the Lions.

Diggs was targeted seven times in the Thanksgiving game, gaining 66 yards on his five receptions. He also drew what looked like it should've been an obvious pass interference call on a deep pass in the game, but it wasn't called—which caused offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to yell at the officials. Diggs hasn't had many huge games with Adam Thielen continuing his emergence as a star, but he'll still be a good option every week and should remain in fantasy lineups.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs caught four passes for 32 yards in Minnesota's win over the Rams.

Diggs has taken a backseat to Adam Thielen since returning from his groin injury, as Case Keenum has built a strong connection with Thielen. Both are strong fantasy plays, but Thielen looks like the better option down the stretch. Consider Diggs a quality WR2 against the Lions on Thanksgiving.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs scores in Week 10.

Diggs made the most of his five targets against the Redskins, catching four passes for 78 yards (including a long of 51 yards on a deep ball) and a touchdown. The score came on a mini comeback route on third-and-goal from the three-yard line, and it was Diggs' fifth touchdown of the season. Unless you're totally stacked a receiver, Diggs should be in your fantasy lineup in Week 11 against the Rams.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs gets six targets in win.

This was Diggs’ first game back after missing the last two games with a groin injury, and he caught four passes for 27 yards against the Browns. It appeared Diggs clearly had a reception of about 20 yards down the sideline late in the game, but the officials overturned it for some reason despite it looking like he clearly had his knee down with possession of the ball. Diggs also might’ve been wide open for a big gain or a potentially deep touchdown, but quarterback Case Keenum didn’t see him. Look for Diggs to do more damage in his next game in Week 10.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (groin) is active this morning.

After injuring his groin in Week 5 against the Bears and missing two games while dealing with his groin injury, Diggs is back for the Vikings. He was a full participant in practice on Thursday and Friday, but there still is some slight risk for him this week while considering that there's a chance he could be a bit of a decoy and that Cleveland—though down half their secondary for this game—has been good against opposing wide receivers this season. Diggs does offer a lot of upside and is a recommended play this week, but perhaps expectations should be tempered after his scorching start to the season before getting injured.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (groin) is officially questionable for Week 8.

Diggs was again a full participant in practice today, so that makes it two days in a row asa full participant. He should be ready to go on Sunday in London, but remember to get up and check before the 9:30 AM ET game time to make sure.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (groin) practiced fully today.

The official injury report for Sunday's game will be released tomorrow, but expect Diggs to be out there in London against the Browns. Cleveland has actually been very good against opposing wide receivers this season, but Diggs will still be a solid fantasy option after missing the last two games (assuming he's active). Be sure to check back in and make sure he's playing in the game, but it's probably safe to insert Diggs into your lineup as a WR2 this week.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (groin) is traveling to London with the team.

The fact that Diggs is going on the trip for the Week 8 game against Cleveland is a great sign, as he'll probably be a game-time call at the worst. Also keep in mind that Diggs said this groin injury isn't as bad as the one he had last season which forced him to miss three games, and he's already missed two games with this current groin injury. Don't lock it in yet, especially with the team's Week 9 bye coming up means he could be held out ensure he's 100%, but Diggs is a pretty good bet to return this week.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday.

Diggs will miss his second straight game while dealing with the groin injury, this time against the Ravens. Adam Thielen should again be in line for a ton of targets, and he's an excellent option even in a difficult matchup with Baltimore's defense. WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) is questionable for the game, which could lead to even more targets for Thielen. Diggs said this groin injury isn't as bad as the one suffered last year, but this is now two missed games in a row, and he didn't practice all week again—he should be considered 50/50 for Week 8 against the Browns.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (groin) didn't practice today.

Diggs said earlier today he's up in the air for Sunday, and he still has tomorrow to practice, but he's looking on the doubtful side of things right now. He'll likely be listed as questionable either way when the official injury report is released tomorrow by the Vikings. With Michael Floyd (hamstring) also looking iffy at best, Jarius Wright could step up as the number three receiver against Baltimore.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (groin) says his status is "up in the air" for Sunday.

Diggs didn't practice yesterday, and we'll see what the practice report says today when it's released. He did say again that this groin injury isn't as bad as the one he had last season, which forced him to miss three games. Still, consider him in real danger of missing his second straight game this week.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (groin) did not practice today.

It's only Wednesday, but a limited participation would've been better to see than no participation. Right now, Diggs is 50/50 for Sunday against the Ravens, and he's one of the guys to watch in terms of practice participation this week.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday against Green Bay.

Diggs was not able to practice all week, so the Vikings went ahead and ruled him out for the game. This is clearly a big blow to the Vikings in a game they'll probably have to score to keep up with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. And fantasy owners also need to find a replacement for one of their better players. Diggs did say the injury isn't as bad as the one that forced him to miss three games last season, but consider the receiver questionable for Week 7. Michael Floyd and Laquon Treadwell could each see bigger roles on Sunday, and Adam Thielen—who went over 200 yards against Green Bay in their Week 16 game last season—could be heavily targeted in the contest.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (groin) did not practice today.

It's not looking good for his status so far, as Diggs did not practice yesterday either. He'll likely be listed as questionable when the injury report comes out tomorrow either way, but it'd be nice to see him at least in a limited practice session.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (groin) did not practice today.

Diggs is looking very questionable for Sunday against the Packers after he was limited throughout Monday's since over the Bears. Hopefully he's able to get out there for practice tomorrow or Friday.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs battles groin injury in Vikings' win.

It's unclear when exactly Diggs injured his groin against the Bears, but it was clearly bothering him for most of the game. He ended up with one reception on four targets, gaining four yards. Now he has a short week before facing the Packers on Sunday, and the injury is something to keep an eye. Diggs had over 200 yards and two touchdowns combined in the two games against Green Bay last year, and he'd continue to be a very good fantasy option despite the injury-riddled, down performance tonight.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs leads Vikings in receiving in Week 4.

Diggs caught five of seven targets against the Lions, gaining 98 yards. Through four games, Diggs in on pace for 88 receptions for 1,564 yards and 16 touchdowns. While it'd be a surprise if he kept up that pace, Diggs produces and is a great fantasy option every week. Keep him in your lineup against the Bears on Monday Night Football for Week 5.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs goes off in Vikings' win over Tampa Bay.

Diggs caught eight passes for 173 yards and two touchdown abasing the Bucs. He completely dominated in the game, even without starter Sam Bradford at quarterback. On the first touchdown, he went up for a jump ball after he ran a corner route; and the second touchdown was on an out-breaking route that Diggs caught and broke a tackle before jogging to the end zone for 59 yards. Diggs also added another long reception in the game, and he seemed to get open at will against the Bucs. Sam Bradford returning would make Diggs a more consistent option, but he should be in most fantasy lineups either way in Week 4 against Detroit.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs is limited by the Steelers in Week 2.

Diggs was at a disadvantage with quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) out for the game, and he had two receptions (on six targets) for 27 yards while adding a four-yard rush. Diggs offers a lot of upside with Bradford in the lineup, so hopefully he's able to get healthy for Week 3 against Tampa.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs scores twice in Vikings' Week 1 win.

The Vikings were clicking on all cylinders, torching the Saints through the air throughout the game. Diggs had seven receptions for 93 yards and two touchdowns in the Monday Night Football contest. The first touchdown was on a corner route where Diggs was wide open after a run-fake on play-action. The second touchdown came on a pass from inside the ten-yard line to the end zone that Diggs high-pointed and came down with. It's a great start for Diggs and the Vikings, who have a more difficult matchup in Week 2 against Pittsburgh.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs catches two-of-five targets in the Vikings' third preseason game.

Diggs had only six yards on his two receptions versus the 49ers. He did have a drop in the game, but the Vikings struggled as a whole offensively, starting with the offensive line. Diggs' preseason is likely over, as the focus shifts to the Week 1 matchup against the Saints on Monday Night Football in a couple weeks. After he had an excellent finish to last season, Diggs does have some upside as he's going around WR30 in most fantasy drafts and could provide great value there.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Sam Bradford targets Stefon Diggs five times in preseason game against the Seahawks.

Diggs caught four-of-five targets for 65 yards, including a long of 39 yards. The third-year receiver made a very tough catch on a third-down when he took a hit from Earl Thomas on a slant route but held on. Diggs also ran a nice wheel route from the slot to get open for his long reception in the game. With a year of experience with Bradford as his quarterback, the combination will look to be more explosive this season.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs had one reception for five yards in Week 1 of the preseason.

Minnesota's offense struggled big time on the offensive line and they couldn't get much going. Diggs will get to go against the vaunted Seattle defense next week as the starters should get more time in the second preseason game.

Stefon Diggs (hip) is inactive against the Bears.

Diggs ends his sophomore season with 84 receptions for 903 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games. Diggs should keep improving and has a good chance to reach 1,000 yards next season for the first time, especially if the offensive line can improve and open up the Vikings offense. Diggs will be a top 30 WR option in 2017 fantasy drafts, with a boost in PPR leagues.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Diggs catches touchdown in garbage time against Packers.

He had four catches for 29 yards against the Packers. With the emergence of Adam Thielen, Diggs finds himself as the third target behind Kyle Rudolph in an anemic Vikings offense. Despite his garbage time touchdown, he's not a great fantasy option to conclude the fantasy season against Chicago.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs caught only two passes for 13 yards against the Colts.

This, despite the Vikings throwing after they fell behind. Charles Johnson and Cordarrelle Patterson were the Vikings leading wide receivers in the game. Diggs had a great game in Week 2 against the Packers, and should be a solid FLEX option next week against them.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs caught three passes for 55 yards against Jacksonville in Week 14.

Diggs has settled in as a high-floor FLEX option with other Vikings receivers like Adam Thielen stepping up for the Vikings.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (knee) caught eight passes for 59 yards as the Vikings fell to the Cowboys.

Diggs was off the WR2 map for this week because he hasn't been as good when he's listed on the injury report, but it was a good game, as he caught all eight of his targets. With 10 days to rest, Diggs will be back as a WR2 for Minnesota's Week 14 matchup with the Jaguars.

Stefon Diggs (knee) is active for Thursday night against the Cowboys.

After getting in full practice, Diggs appears ready to go in a big game for Minnesota. It's a good matchup for Diggs and he should be inserted into fantasy lineups. The Vikings problem has been pass protection, but the Cowboys don't rush the passer well, so Sam Bradford should have some time to find his playmakers.

Vikings list Stefon Diggs (knee) as questionable for Thursday night against the Cowboys.

It looks like it could be a game-time decision for Diggs. If he's active, he should be ticked down to a FLEX play because of potential limitations from his injury. Make sure you check on Diggs' status before the Vikings kick off on Thursday Night.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Stefon Diggs (knee) is inactive for Thanksgiving against the Lions.

The short week made it tough for Diggs to get healthy enough to be able to play. It's a downgrade to the Vikings offense in a very important NFC North game. The Vikings will rely on Adam Thielen, Cordarrelle Patterson, and Laquon Treadwell at receiver for Sam Bradford. The first-round rookie Treadwell will be fun to watch, as he hasn't gotten much playing time this season. Diggs will get another week to recover, as the Vikings will welcome the Cowboys to Minnesota next Thursday night.

Diggs catches six passes for 37 yards against the Cardinals.

Look for him to average more than 6.2 yards per catch against the Lions. He’s a good WR2. Make sure you get him in your lineup before the early Thanksgiving game.

Stefon Diggs | Vikings WR

Diggs catches 13 passes for second consecutive week.

He had 13 catches for 164 yards against the Redskins. Diggs is a reliable target for Sam Bradford, as well as a reliable high-floor option for fantasy players. Diggs is a solid WR2, but temper your expectations next week in Arizona if he draws the matchup against Patrick Peterson.
