Dynasty & Redraft: WR Stefon Diggs, Bills


Recommended Posts

Quote

Stefon Diggs has the second most air yards in the league through Week 10. 

Diggs is on pace for 163.2 targets in his first season with the Bills, obliterating offseason fears that a low-volume Buffalo passing attack would hinder his fantasy prospects. Only DK Metcalf has more air yards than Diggs even after a down week in that category (Diggs posted 78 air yards against Arizona). Diggs will continue being a high-end WR1 after Buffalo's Week 11 bye week.

Don't say it much but good job Spielman.

The coaches film isn't available yet so I was not really able to see what was happening down field which matters on a couple of the plays, but here are my observations mostly focused on the passing ga

Wow. 16 targets..... just traded for him in 0.5 ppr. Sent Beckham and woods, May have overpaid a bit but Allen loves him and he is playing fantastic ball 

You didn't overpay a thing. This man is WR1 in full PPR. Not just a WR1 but the WR1.

I wanted to acquire him this offseason and didn't and am kicking myself because I knew better back then what to do and didn't do it out of fear.

Darn fear.

Its always better to regret something you have done than something you haven't done.

I am amazed with how much Diggs has made Allen better. Certainly exceeding my expectations.

Stefon Diggs caught 7-of-9 targets for 39 yards in Buffalo's Week 12 win over the Chargers.

Diggs' two targets in the first half were both negated for penalties (downfield DPI, offensive holding), technically listing him with his first target (and catch) in the third quarter. His usage over the last 30 minutes was strictly underneath or at the line of scrimmage as Josh Allen continued to run for his life from Joey Bosa (career-high three sacks) and get rid of the ball as quickly as possible. Diggs still finished with a team-high nine targets and is now averaging 12.6 in the three games John Brown (calf) has missed this year. Diggs will again rank as a volume-based WR1 with a salivating ceiling in Week 13 against the 49ers.

Stefon Diggs caught 10-of-11 targets for 92 yards in the Bills' Week 13 win over the 49ers.

Diggs is now tied with Keenan Allen for the league lead in catches (90) and went over 1,000 yards for the season in his 12th game. Truly an elite route runner, Diggs was ripping up the Niners' undermanned secondary and took Jason Verrett to school a couple times with some ankle-breakers. The only thing missing for DIggs was a touchdown on a night Josh Allen tossed four of them. Diggs is well on his way to career highs in catches and yards and will be a WR1 next week against the Steelers.

I don't get to watch many Bills games, but Diggs was just a joy to watch yesterday. There were a couple times Verrett looked like he was right on Diggs, and just like *that* Diggs had 3 yards of space. He is special at getting open.

Yahoo! Week 14 care/don't care: Elite WR Stefon Diggs is one of the best fantasy football values of 2020

Elite WR Stefon Diggs lifts the Bills

Shocked to read the word “elite” next to Stefon Diggs’ name? Guess you haven’t been watching the 2020 NFL season. You’re late, but thanks for catching up.

Any way you want to slice it, Diggs has played like an elite NFL wideout, a transcendent talent that alters the course of an offense. By any production measure, he’s been that guy. I’d love one serious film-watcher to point out a part of playing receiver that Diggs doesn’t do at a high-level.

Don’t waste too much time looking. It doesn’t exist.

While the Steelers offense never quite got out of the mud, Buffalo kicked it into four-wheel drive the second they started revolving the attack around Diggs. It makes sense for a fully developed quarterback to lock in on his top wideout who is, quite literally, always open. Even against a defense that’s been one of the best all year, nothing could stop Diggs’ domination. It’s been that way all year.

Stefon Diggs Week 14 Roiute Tree breakdown

Diggs secured the NFL lead in catches on Sunday, hitting triple digits for the second time in his career. As the broadcast pointed out, he’s been ultra-consistent. He’s cleared 80 yards and/or scored a touchdown in 11 of 13 games this year. You can make an argument that given his steady play, his week-winning ceiling, and the fact he was insanely taken outside of the top-25 receivers in almost every fantasy draft that Diggs was the best value of 2020.

The Bills probably feel the same way about their No. 1 wide receiver. The Vikings are probably plenty happy with their own emerging star in Justin Jefferson and the extra picks they got back for Diggs. Yet, the Bills would without a doubt make this trade again every day of the week and twice on Sundays. Diggs has been that much of a difference-maker for them. That’s the definition of an elite player.

Stefon Diggs left Week 15 against the Broncos with a foot injury.

Diggs had to be taken to the locker room late in the fourth quarter. He racked up 11 catches for 147 yards on 13 targets before exiting. This was the third straight 10-plus catch game for Diggs and fourth in his last five. There should be an update on Diggs by early next week.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said early reports on Stefon Diggs (ankle) "don't seem very worrisome."

Even so, McDermott added that he wants to see Diggs on the practice field Wednesday before jumping to any conclusions. The Bills are still in the thick of the AFC playoff hunt, potentially leaping the Steelers for the No. 2 seed with back-to-back wins and a Pittsburgh loss over the last two games, but Diggs' health ahead of the postseason takes priority. John Brown had his 21-day practice window opened prior to Sunday and could return sooner than expected if Diggs is unable to go in Week 16 against the Patriots.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Stefon Diggs (foot) will take part in Wednesday's practice.

It's a good sign for Diggs, who left late in Saturday's win. The Bills play on Monday night, so we won't know Diggs' official participation until Buffalo releases their injury report on Thursday. The early signs are Diggs avoided a serious injury.

I'll have to add my name in with the chorus being sung here of those who ended up being wrong about Diggs in Buffalo. He was the one player on my squad that I definitely wanted to move coming into this year. I figured that he'd be a high volume, low yardage, rare long TD type of guy going forward. Sometimes it's the move that you don't make...

Stefon Diggs caught 9-of-11 targets for 145 yards and three touchdowns in the Bills' Week 16 win over the Patriots.

Working against New England's Stephon Gilmore-less secondary, Diggs got off to a frustratingly slow start to this one but had a monster second half with 50-, 18-, and eight-yard touchdowns, catching Josh Allen's second, third, and fourth scores of the night. Diggs has already blown past his previous career highs in catches and yards and is now one off his previous best of nine touchdowns, catching his sixth, seventh, and eighth scores of 2020 on Monday night. Diggs' foot was obviously no issue. With the Bills fighting for the No. 2 seed in the AFC, Diggs should be out there next week against Miami.

Add my name to the list of people that were wrong about Diggs.  Never considered drafting him and thought he was a WR3 at best.  Our league winner had Diggs.

Fun stat for Diggs...

Only WR to score double digit fantasy points every week in PPR this year, in 1ppr and 10yd=1pt. (Standard)

Hill failed in the last week, lost a championship by .9 thanks to it.

guilty on being wrong about Diggs.

Diggs put a dagger through my heart in my oldest re-draft league champ finals game and also caused our dynasty leagues resident villain to come from 30 points behind and win his third championship in a row. Absolutely insufferable. He’s amassed a great roster and deserved his 2peat but this third one really did have an absurdly high level of fortuity to it. 
 

For both those reasons, I will forever hate Mr Diggs ( until I draft him at good value in a re-draft league next year 😂 )

In the one dynasty league I owned Diggs, I tried to move him for months in the offseason. I just went back and looked, and while I was dumb enough to try and move him, had a few owners who might have been even dumber than me for rejecting. Here is a list of players I offered up Diggs for and was rejected- Evans, McLaurin, 1.3 pick this year, Gibson, future 1st (that would have been 1.3 next year) and future 1st ( that would have been 1.4 next year)  Diggs literally carried me to the league finals and had I of made a better decision at the flex spot I would have won the league. This guy proved a ton of people wrong. Congrats to all those smart enough to see this coming! Wish I had more shares!

Diggs basically carried team FBG to the title in the Interlard Challenge.

Same here.  Avoided him like the plague in my redrafts.  Of course, I made the finals and lost to a owner with Diggs AND Allen.  Was up 28 going into MNF, ended up losing by 42.

Stefon Diggs caught 7-of-8 targets for 76 yards in the Bills' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

Diggs' day was limited to just two quarters, as the Bills rested their best offensive pieces in the second half after taking a 28-6 lead at halftime. It is a testament to the team's offensive momentum that they were able to play their starters for only one half and comfortably win the contest against a team that could have locked in a playoff birth with a victory. Many question Diggs' fit with Josh Allen after last spring's trade. The regular season results speak for themselves, with Diggs securing 127 catches for 1,535 yards and eight touchdowns. He remains one of the best players in the league at his position, and helped transformed the Bills offense into a juggernaut.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Stefon Diggs (questionable, oblique) will play in Saturday's Wild Card game with the Colts.

Cole Beasley (knee) is also expected to be active. Diggs' status was never in doubt despite a limited practice week, but Beasley seems likely be at less than 100 percent. Josh Allen will have his full supporting cast for a home matchup with the Colts.

Stefon Diggs caught 6-of-9 targets for 128 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' Wild Card Weekend win over the Colts. 

Quiet in the first half, Diggs went off in the second half against a suspect Indianapolis secondary that had given up splash plays to Gabriel Davis early in the game. Diggs, who led the Bills in targets, receiving yards, and catches, capped his day with a 36-yard touchdown grab. If Josh Allen posts a big stat line -- he threw for 324 yards and two touchdowns in this one -- Diggs will almost certainly have a day. Buffalo's elite passing attack will continue to run through Diggs in the Divisional Round.

Stefon Diggs caught 8-of-11 targets for 106 yards and one touchdown in the Bills' Divisional Round win over the Ravens.

As always, Diggs was phenomenal in the intermediate part of the field. He had multiple grabs on comeback routes and scramble drills, plus had a walk-in touchdown off a screen in the red zone. Diggs now has at least 100 yards in five of his last six games. Another 100-yard outing versus the Chiefs or Browns is certainly in reach with the Bills completely abandoning the run game. He's in the mix for being a top-five NFL receiver.

Stefon Diggs caught 6-of-11 targets for 77 yards in the Bills AFC Championship loss to the Chiefs.

The Chiefs pressed Diggs at the line most of the night and got him off his marks. He was on 2-12 receiving deep into the second half. All in all, Diggs had a career year in his first season with the Bills after coming over from the Vikings in a trade last offseason. Diggs appeared in all 16 games for the first time in his career and led the NFL with 127 catches and 1,535 yards on 166 targets, scoring eight touchdowns. Diggs was the overall WR3 in half-PPR points per game this season, trailing only Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill. Still just 27 years old, Diggs has three years left on his contract and will be drafted in the first round of fantasy leagues next summer.

Stefon Diggs played through a torn oblique during the Bills' 2020 postseason.

Diggs was on the injury report throughout the playoffs but didn't miss any games. It's a serious injury, though Diggs is having a normal offseason and will be 100 percent for training camp. Buffalo moved on from John Brown but they have Diggs, Gabriel Davis, and Cole Beasley all returning. The signing of Emmanuel Sanders should also help in 10 personnel for the Bills, who used four-wide sets on 14 percent of their plays last season.
