Diggs caught three of five targets for 33 yards and added a nine-yard run during Sunday's 27-17 win over the Cardinals. It was a season low in targets for Diggs, who came into Sunday averaging seven catches off of 11 targets per game. It's probably safe to write Sunday off as a blip, but it warrants mentioning that the Vikings dropped back on just 54 percent of snaps on Sunday as compared 71 percent heading into the week. It is unclear whether that's a sign of things to come or if Diggs' targets are in jeopardy. He has an opportunity to rebound on Sunday against a Jets pass defense that ranks in the middle of the pack this season.
Diggs caught 10 of 11 targets for 91 yards in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Eagles. He also gained 25 yards on two carries. Diggs led the team in targets and receptions, finishing behind only Adam Thielen in terms of receiving yardage. In addition to his busy day on the outside, Diggs made an impact out of the backfield as well by setting a new career high in rushing yards. Diggs has been excellent in Minnesota's three road games, averaging 10 catches and 114 yards per game with two touchdowns. His home outputs curiously haven't been anywhere close to those numbers to this point, but he'll look to change that next Sunday against the Cardinals.
Diggs brought in 11 of 15 targets for 123 yards in the Vikings' 38-31 loss to the Rams on Thursday night. Diggs' reception total was a season high and led the Vikings on the night. The 24-year-old now has double-digit targets in each of his last three games, with the fourth-year pro eclipsing the century mark in yardage in two of them. Along with fellow wideout Adam Thielen, Diggs is seeing a significant target share in the Vikings' aerial attack, leaving him in a favorable spot heading into a Week 5 showdown against the Eagles.
Diggs caught four of 10 targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 27-6 loss to the Bills. 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.
Diggs caught nine of 13 targets for 128 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 29-29 tie with the Packers. He also hauled in a two-point conversion. After a relatively quiet start to the game, Diggs posted huge numbers in the fourth quarter to get his side back in it. He caught a three-yard touchdown pass to begin the period and later scored from 75 yards out to bring his team within two. Diggs then capped off the comeback with a catch for a two-point conversion to tie the score with just seconds left on the clock. He didn't enjoy his greatest performance Week 1, but this excellent showing gives him 12 catches (on 19 targets) for 171 yards and three touchdowns through two games. Diggs should be in for a big year with Kirk Cousins under center and will look to exploit a porous Bills defense this Sunday.
