Diggs brought in eight of 10 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' 24-10 loss to the Bears on Sunday. Diggs paced the Vikings in receptions, yardage and targets, while also notching a receiving score for the third straight game. The 25-year-old hadn't seen double-digit targets since Week 12, but the extra volume still led to a modest yardage total due to the majority of his grabs coming close to the line of scrimmage. Diggs finished 2018 with career highs in receptions (102), receiving yards (1,021) and touchdowns (nine), sending him into the offseason with plenty of momentum. With a year of working with Kirk Cousins under his belt, Diggs will look to build on his already strong numbers in 2019.
Diggs caught two of six targets for 10 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-9 win over the Lions. Diggs' eight-yard score in the second quarter raised his season touchdown total to eight, matching last year's career high. With Minnesota still battling for a playoff spot, Diggs will do his best to further improve on that number in Week 17 against the ferocious Bears defense.
Diggs caught four of seven targets for 49 yards and a touchdown while adding a nine-yard carry in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Dolphins. Diggs opened the scoring with a 13-yard touchdown just 3:20 into the contest, but he was pretty quiet the rest of the way as quarterback Kirk Cousins threw for just 215 yards. While Diggs has been held below 50 receiving yards twice in the past three games, he preceded this mediocre stretch with 322 yards over the previous three weeks and has four touchdowns over the past six games. Owners who have ridden him this far should continue to stick with Diggs against the Lions in Week 16.
Diggs caught four of six targets for 76 yards in Monday night's 21-7 loss to the Seahawks. He also rushed once for five yards. Diggs' performance was highlighted by a 48-yard reception during the second half. Prior to that, the Vikings offense struggled mightily to move the ball and ultimately didn't muster any points until its final drive. Nonetheless, Diggs ended the evening as Minnesota's leader in the passing game, topping the 75-yard plateau for the fourth time in his last five games despite playing through a lingering knee ailment. The wideout will look to keep his strong stretch going Week 15 versus the Dolphins.
Diggs (knee) does not carry an injury designation into Monday's contest against the Seahawks. Diggs has been undergoing regular maintenance-related practice designations since late November and never appeared in any danger of missing Monday's contest. The 25-year-old will aim to build on his 2018 numbers against a Seattle defense that is allowing 250.7 passing yards per game.
