2019 Fantasy Outlook
If you thought Adam Thielen lived off dink-and-dunk plays, take a look at Stefon Diggs' stats - 102 catches for 1,021 yards and just 6.9 YPT, ahead of only Zay Jones, Jarvis Landry, Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Crabtree among 100-target wideouts. Diggs has good hands (only four drops), but it's easy to hang on to passes when you're standing so close to the quarterback (8.8 average depth of target). The Vikings' poor offensive line play undoubtedly impacted the play calling as both Diggs and Thielen made fewer big plays (Diggs had only 13 20-plus- and two 40-plus-yard catches on 149 targets). At 6-0, 191, with 4.46 speed, Diggs is quick and athletic, runs excellent routes and has strong ball skills - in the rare event he gets a downfield throw. He also saw 18 red-zone looks and cashed in six for scores, so he has a decent TD floor for a wideout his size. Diggs has been an efficient player in the past - 8.9 YPT in 2017 and never less than 8.0 before last year - so as long as Kirk Cousins has time to throw, we'd expect Diggs, still only 25, to improve his per-play production. (And the Vikings upgraded their interior offensive line this offseason.) Once again, Thielen is his only real competition for targets, so there should be plenty of opportunities for both.

Explodes for best game of season
WRMinnesota Vikings
October 13, 2019
Diggs secured seven of 11 targets for 167 yards and three touchdowns in the Vikings' 38-20 win over the Eagles on Sunday. He also rushed twice for 18 yards.
ANALYSIS
The breakout game the Vikings, Diggs and fantasy managers had all been waiting for finally came for the speedy receiver, who got his day off to an outstanding start by shaking loose for touchdown receptions of 62 and 51 yards in the second quarter. Just as important, albeit not as spectacular, was Diggs' 11-yard scoring grab late in the third quarter, which extended Minnesota's lead to 31-20 at the time. The targets, yardage and touchdown tally were all high-water marks on the season for Diggs, who also equaled the season-best seven receptions he'd managed Week 4 against the Bears. Diggs will look to build on his second 100-yard game in the last three contests when he tangles with the Lions secondary Week 7.

2015
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.
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.
