  Vikings | Stefon Diggs gets into end zone    Sun Dec 23, 06:05 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs managed two grabs for just 10 yards in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions but at least he was able to score a touchdown.

Footballguys view: The Vikings receivers aren't the engine of the offense any more. Diggs is more WR3/Flex than WR2 against the Bears in Week 17 Superbowls next week.

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) is dealing with swelling in his knee and will participate in pregame warmups before deciding on his status for Week 13, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Get Diggs out of your lineups, even if he's active he's a dicey play. Diggs has generally not been usual self for fantasy when he tries to play through injuries.

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) is expected to play against the New England Patriots in Week 13, according to a source.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs officially questionable    Fri Nov 30, 04:33 PM

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 30, and is officially listed as questionable for the Week 13 game against the New England Patriots.

Footballguys view: Diggs is still not a sure thing to play, but is reasonably certain to be in the lineup and a frequent target for Kirk Cousins. He has had problems playing at his usual level when on the injury report in the past, but his ceiling is too high to sit if he is active.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs returns to limited work    Fri Nov 30, 12:15 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) returned to practice Friday, Nov. 30, after sitting out the previous two days with a knee issue. Diggs had a helmet on but appeared to be a limited participant.

Footballguys view: Diggs should play against the Patriots and will be almost impossible to bench if active, but there's risk of in-game aggravation or ineffectiveness when Diggs plays while on the injury report.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs remains out     Thu Nov 29, 12:41 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) missed his second straight day of practice Thursday, Nov. 29.

Footballguys view: Diggs has said he will play on Sunday afternoon against the Patriots, but he said the same thing before Week 9, which he missed. This is tougher matchup and the Vikings don't have a bye on the other side of it, so his proclamation is a little more trustworthy, although we'll still want to check in Sunday morning.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs makes eight grabs    Sun Oct 21, 05:17 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs posted eight receptions for 33 yards on 14 targets in Week 7 against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: Diggs is getting volume, but he's not making much happen after the catch. He might draw Marshon Lattimore next week, but eventually defenses are going to give Adam Thielen more attention and Diggs will have some big games.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs quiet in Week 6    Sun Oct 14, 06:06 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught three passes for 33 yards against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

Footballguys view: Don't worry about Diggs, Patrick Peterson has done this to him before and many others before. Next week Peterson will tangle with Emmanuel Sanders, Courtland Sutton, and Demaryius Thomas, while Diggs should bounce back against a Jets secondary that was missing two starters today.

Footballguys view: Diggs was mostly targeted in the short game and added yardage after the catch. He's a notch below Adam Thielen in this passing game, but still a WR1 going forward.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs held in check    Sun Sep 23, 04:56 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs posted just four receptions for 17 yards on 10 targets in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: Diggs was the only key part of the Vikings offense whose production matched the team performance. The Rams lost Marcus Peters today, so his matchup with them on Thursday isn't as scary, although if he's shadowed by the best corner (Aqib Talib with Peters out) like he was when Tre'Davious White followed him, that could be a problem.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs goes bonkers at Lambeau    Sun Sep 16, 07:57 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs posted nine receptions for 128 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 2 tie in Green Bay. He also added an important game-tying two-point conversion reception.

Footballguys view: Diggs didn't play as big a role as Adam Thielen last week, but he had a 75-yard score and some clutch short receptions in this one. He's a must play against the Bills next week.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs visits end zone in Week 1    Sun Sep 9, 06:01 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs posted three receptions for 43 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Diggs had a small window score on a perfect throw from Kirk Cousins, but wasn't heavily involved in the passing game after that. He's still a high ceiling play, but looking more volatile than expected after one week.

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught three passes on three targets for 35 yards and a touchdown against the Denver Broncos in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: Diggs was in midseason form, and he had outstanding chemistry with Kirk Cousins in their first game together. Diggs is poised to take another step forward and if he can play 16 games he could be a value at current ADP.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs, Xavier Rhodes held out    Wed Aug 8, 06:30 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs and CB Xavier Rhodes were held out of practice Wednesday, Aug. 8, because head coach Mike Zimmer were not happy with them. The two players were jawing at each other during morning walkthrough and also had issues during practice Tuesday, Aug. 7.

Footballguys view: It's just some tough love from Zimmer. Diggs is a darling of Fantasy GMs out there and everyone seems to be anxiously waiting to see if he can outproduce the numbers he posted last year. He was the no.16 overall fantasy receiver in standard scoring leagues with Case Keenum throwing him the rock in 2017. We're all hoping Kirk Cousins makes him a favorite target as well.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs terms    Tue Jul 31, 10:07 AM

Updating an earlier report, Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs' five-year deal is worth $72 million with $40 million guaranteed. The deal is worth a maximum of $81 million.

Footballguys view: The Vikings appear to be having no problems locking up players long term even after taking on Kirk Cousins fully guaranteed contract. Diggs price will only go up in an annually wide receiver hungry free agent market, so this is smart.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs could become free agent after 2018    Sat Jun 30, 10:53 AM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs could become a free agent after the 2018 season if the team is unable to sign him to a contract extension, in the opinion of Joel Corry of CBSSports.com.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick out of Maryland in the 2015 NFL draft, Diggs is in the final year of his contract in 2018 and set to make $1.9 million this year. The franchise tag for wide receivers is expected to be about $17 million, so that doesn't seem to be the best option for keeping Diggs around in the future.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs could receive extension    Wed Jun 27, 03:13 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs is one of the players that the Vikings would like to sign to a contract extension, according to general manager Rick Spielman.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick in 2015, Diggs is in the final year of his rookie contract. Diggs has never played a full 16-game season, but he does seemed poised for a breakout in 2018. We'll see what kind of connection he can build with new QB Kirk Cousins, and projecting Diggs for the first 1,000-yard season of his career is not outlandish (career high of 903 yards in 2016).

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs draws praise    Sun May 27, 06:02 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs was lauded by new offensive coordinator John DeFillippo recently for displaying 'fantastic' ball skills, according to Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Footballguys view: Diggs finished 2017 as the no.16 fantasy receiver, largely due to his eight receiving touchdowns. He's a consistently featured player in the Vikings passing game and should become an instant favorite of QB Kirk Cousins.

  Vikings | Minnesota hoping to extend three key players    Sun May 20, 03:09 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs, DE Danielle Hunter and LB Anthony Barr are the three players the team is hoping to sign to lucrative deals this offseason, according to Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Footballguys view: Diggs is in the final year of his rookie contract and is set to make a little over $700,000 in 2018. The Vikings spent a ton of money to get QB Kirk Cousins, but they should be able to find a way to get Diggs a contract.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. poised to shine?    Fri Jan 19, 10:27 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. will thrive if Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur becomes the next head coach of the Giants as expected, according to WR Stefon Diggs, 'because Pat knows how to get people the ball.'

Footballguys view: Beckham will thrive no matter who the Giants hire. We understand the logic here, but Beckham is a superstar and any coach that gets hired will know there's a mandate to get him the ball early and often.
