Diggs started his sophomore campaign with back-to-back 100-yard outings and later tallied consecutive 13-reception performances, but there were also quite a few duds mixed in, with knee and hip injuries perhaps playing a role. He finished the year with 903 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games, showing flashes of No. 1 receiver potential in an otherwise stale Minnesota offense. Diggs is locked in as the team's top target in the passing game, but it's unclear if he'll be catching balls from Sam Bradford or Teddy Bridgewater (knee) when Week 1 rolls around. There hasn't been any indication that Diggs' late-season hip injury will be a factor this offseason.
Diggs (hip) caught 84 passes (on 111 targets) for 903 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games played this season.
Diggs, a fifth-round pick in 2015, significantly improved on most of his rookie-year numbers, even though he scored one less touchdown in the same amount of games this season. The Maryland product quickly emerged as the Vikings' top receiving threat, starting the season with 285 yards over Minnesota's first two games. Besides another wildly successful stretch from Weeks 8 to 10, Diggs didn't top the 60-yard mark in his other eight outings. While he'll look to improve his consistency and overcome a hip injury this offseason, Diggs certainly enters 2017 with his fantasy stock on the rise.
Diggs (hip) is inactive for Sunday's game against Chicago.
Diigs didn't practice during the week and was listed as doubtful, so this isn't a surprise. Adam Thielen and Cordarrelle Patterson will be the top two receivers with Diggs out.
Diggs (hip) did not practice Friday and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Chicago.
It looks very unlikely that Diggs will play since he didn't practice all week. Adam Thielen and Cordarrelle Patterson will be the top to receivers with Diggs likely out.
Building from no practice last Wednesday to a full showing by week's end, Diggs cleared up any lingering questions about his availability for Saturday's game in Green Bay, when he hauled in four of six passes for 29 yards and a garbage-time touchdown. Due to the emergence of Adam Thielen, Diggs could experience reduced attention Sunday from the Bears' defense, which has conceded the 10th-most receptions to wideouts (13.7 per game) on the season.
