2018 Fantasy Outlook
Diggs made one of the most improbable and spectacular catches of all time to knock the Saints out of the playoffs, and his regular-season work was nothing to sneeze at, either. Despite missing two games, Diggs scored eight times and bumped up his efficiency to 8.9 YPT (9th among the league's 38 90-target WR). Part of that was due to Case Keenum taking over for the conservative Sam Bradford, and Diggs will have another competent downfield thrower in Kirk Cousins this year. At 6-0, 191, Diggs has just average size, and his 4.46 speed is good but nothing special. But Diggs is quick, runs excellent routes and has strong ball skills and reliable hands. Adam Thielen is a co-No. 1 target, and assuming Cousins and new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo don't shake things up too much, both players should share in the passing game spoils. One negative is the presence of red-zone specialist Kyle Rudolph, who had nine targets inside the 10 last year, along with a presumably healthy Dalvin Cook. Read Past Outlooks

Held in check versus Bills
WRMinnesota Vikings
September 23, 2018
Diggs caught four of 10 targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 27-6 loss to the Bills.
ANALYSIS
Although Diggs saw double-digit targets as the Vikings abandoned the run early, he managed a long gain of just seven yards while finishing with his lowest yardage total since Week 5 of the 2017 season. It was a disappointing outing for Diggs, who entered this seemingly favorable matchup with 171 receiving yards and three touchdowns already to his name this year. On a positive note, he seems destined for a healthy target share each time out and should be heavily utilized again Thursday against the Rams.

Nagging injuries derailed Diggs' second season and also opened the door for Adam Thielen to become the team's co-No. 1 target. At 6-0, 191, Diggs has only average size, but he possesses good speed (4.46 40), runs good routes and has strong ball skills. He didn't run many deep routes, however -- only three catches of 40 yards and 10 for 20 or more -- and he wasn't used heavily in the red zone (12 looks). As such, he scored only three times. While Diggs averaged a respectable 8.1 YPT, it came on only 10.8 YPC, meaning he was padding his catch percentage (and Sam Bradford's record-setting completion percentage) with short routes. Diggs worked this offseason to improve his conditioning in the interest of staying healthier and should again be one of Bradford's main targets. However, Thielen isn't going away, and the team signed Michael Floyd.
A fifth-round pick last season, Diggs rapidly ascended the Vikings' depth chart, ultimately becoming the top target in the passing game and posting four straight weeks of at least 85 yards. Unfortunately, that streak ended Week 8, and Diggs failed to eclipse even 70 yards and scored only twice during the team's last nine games. At 6-0, 195, Diggs has only average size and good speed (4.46 40). He's elusive in space, runs good routes and has strong ball skills. Despite his anemic production in the second half, Diggs heads into the season as the team's No. 1 wideout. Of course, the Vikings don't throw much (454 attempts, 32nd) and when they do they are not especially efficient (7.1 YPA, 20th.) And even though Mike Wallace is gone, Diggs could have competition from first-round pick Laquon Treadwell for targets.
A former five-star recruit, Diggs looked like a future day one or two draft pick during his freshman season at Maryland (54 catches for 848 yards and six touchdowns while scoring twice on kick returns in 11 games), but he never made much progress due to injuries and terrible quarterback play. The 2015 fifth-round draft pick has some upside as a result, but will likely be brought along slowly and may spend much of the season on the practice squad.
