Diggs caught eight of 12 targets for 70 yards during Sunday's 38-7 loss to the Eagles. Diggs tied for the team lead in targets, but he made just one play longer than 14 yards and wound up averaging just 8.8 yards per catch. The third-year wideout's usage was slightly down during the regular season, but he still managed 849 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns, not to mention his terrific game-winning catch in the NFC divisional round. Diggs has emerged as one of the bright young receivers in the NFL and will look to take another leap in 2018 as he plays out his rookie contract.
Diggs caught six of 10 targets for 137 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 29-24 NFC divisional-round victory over the Saints. Even though the Vikings' offense got off to a hot start and ultimately scored the first 17 points of the game, Diggs didn't contribute much early on and had just two receptions for 28 yards at halftime. However, the Maryland product came up clutch on several occasions in the second half, and no reception was bigger than his last. With Minnesota down by one point and just 10 seconds remaining in regulation, Diggs hauled in a long bomb at the New Orleans' 30-yard line, and, thanks to whiffed tackle by Saints safety Marcus Williams, was able to scamper his way to the house for the game-winning touchdown. The Vikings will now advance to next weekend's NFC championship game against an Eagles team that allowed just 6.5 yards per pass attempt during the regular season, which was the third-lowest mark in the league.
Diggs had six receptions for 65 yards on six targets, including a 15-yard touchdown, in Sunday's win over Chicago. Diggs finished the regular season on a roll with touchdowns in each of his last three games. He finishes the regular season with 64 receptions for 849 yards and eight touchdowns. He had fewer receptions and yards then last season, but more touchdowns (three in 2016). He'll try to keep his touchdown streak going in the playoffs after a bye week.
Diggs corralled five of eight passes for 60 yards and one touchdown during Saturday's 16-0 win at Green Bay. As the Vikings inch ever closer to a first-round bye in the playoffs, Diggs himself was the beneficiary of a game plan that mostly turned vanilla after his four-yard touchdown grab with 56 seconds left in the first quarter. By game's end, Case Keenum had 25 pass attempts next to his name versus 33 carries collectively from the team, one of which Diggs took for three yards. If the Panthers lose or tie Sunday and the Eagles win Monday, the Vikings will be locked into the No. 2 seed in the NFC, a reality that likely would result in top-line players on both sides of the ball taking off Week 17.
Diggs turned 10 targets into six catches for 64 yards in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Panthers. Diggs was the intended receiver on a fourth-quarter interception thrown by Case Keenum and was once again outplayed by both Adam Thielen and tight end Kyle Rudolph in the passing game. The third-year man out of Maryland started the season hot with four touchdowns in three games but has only reached the end zone once since.
