Diggs recorded four tackles, all solo, a pass defensed and returned an interception for a touchdown in Monday's loss to the Jets.
It was an abysmal night for the Lions defense, but Diggs was one of the lone bright spots. He intercepted Sam Darnold's first career pass, returning it for a score. Diggs' play has been elevated since moving to safety late last season; in six starts he now has four interceptions and one touchdown.
Diggs, who was entering the last year of his rookie contract, has evolved from an inconsistent slot cornerback to one of the most versatile defensive players on the Lions roster. Potentially on the verge of a breakout IDP season, Diggs isn't being pigeonholed to just one position and should see significant playing time at both safety and cornerback in 2018.
Diggs recorded 55 tackles, one sack, nine PBUs, three interceptions and one forced fumble across 16 games in 2017.
Diggs started the season as a slot cornerback but was moved to strong safety after Tavon Wilson (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve in late November. He performed very well in his new role, recording 22 tackles, his first career sack, one forced fumble and all three of his interceptions in five starts. With Wilson set to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year, Diggs seems poised to enter the 2018 campaign as a starter alongside Glover Quin.
Diggs had five tackles (three solo) and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.
Diggs continued his strong play since switching to safety in early December and now has an interception in three consecutive games. The 26-year-old should have solid IDP appeal in Week 17 as the Lions face the Packers turnover-prone quarterback Brett Hundley.
Diggs recorded three tackles, two pass defensed, one sack and an interception in Saturday's win over the Bears.
Diggs has made a seamless transition to safety over the past couple weeks, as he now has an interception in each game since the move. He played in all 69 of the Lions' defensive snaps -- just one of three players to do so Saturday night.
