Bills WR Stefan Diggs racked up a 12-148-3 receiving line in Monday night's beatdown of the Titans, drawing 36.8% of QB Josh Allen's targets. With WR Gabriel Davis out, TE Dawson Knox checked in 2nd in targets (5), receptions (4) and receiving yards (41). FB Reggie Gilliam claimed the remaining of QB Josh Allen's 4 TD tosses.

Bills WR Gabriel Davis (ankle) is not expected to play vs. the Titans tonight, "barring a surprise," according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. "Team has held out hope but playing was considered an uphill battle since Saturday's injury," Fowler tweets. We'll see if Davis can make it back for this coming Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. His absence figures to mean WR Khalil Shakir's debut, although the rookie is really only an option in DFS. Stefon Diggs, Isaiah McKenzie, Jamison and Dawson Knox are candidates for extra targets with Davis out.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated, WR Stefon Diggs said he wants to finish his career in Buffalo. The 28-year-old mentioned how it would be a “dream” to team up with his brother, Cowboys DB Trevon Diggs, but that’s unlikely in the short-term. Stefon, of course, signed an extension in April that keeps him under contract through the 2027 season, so his words match his actions. (Trevon is signed for 2 more seasons.) If the Bill plays out his entire contract, he'll be a 35-year-old free agent.

The Bills and WR Stefon Diggs have agreed to a 4-year, $104 million extension with $70 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Tyreek Hill is the only WR with more guaranteed money in his contract. This extension tacks on to Diggs' old deal and keeps him under contract with Buffalo through the 2027 season. Diggs will be 34 at that point, so he's basically tied to QB Josh Allen for the rest of his career.

Bills WR Gabriel Davis has been placed on the COVID list. So both Davis and WR Cole Beasley will miss Sunday's pivotal game vs. the Patriots. That leaves Stefon Diggs and Emmanuel Sanders as Buffalo's top 2 WRs, with Isaiah McKenzie likely handling #3 duties. TE Dawson Knox should also play an even bigger role than usual. It's a tough spot for QB Josh Allen against a strong New England defense.

Bills TE Dawson Knox had surgery on his broken hand and is expected to miss 3 weeks, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Knox has a Week 7 bye, meaning that he should just miss the next 2 games vs. Miami and Jacksonville and return for Week 10. TE Tommy Sweeney is next up on Buffalo's depth chart but is unlikely to be a fantasy factor. WRs Stefon Diggs, Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley should pick up extra targets with Knox out.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs (knee) returned to practice on Sunday. It was a "light practice," per WGR's Sal Capaccio, but Diggs appeared to be moving well. He had missed the previous week and a half, but we never got the vibe that it was a serious issue. We'll continue to keep an eye on Diggs, but he's safe to draft at this point.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs missed his 5th straight practice with a knee injury on Monday. Per The Athletic' Joe Buscaglia, HC Sean McDermott said he expects Diggs to miss more time but isn't worried about his status for the start of the season "at this point." We're not moving Diggs in the rankings right now but will keep a close eye on his status.

The Bills “aren’t giving up on Dawson Knox,” per Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic. “Dawson, going into Year 3, we have big expectations for him,” GM Brandon Beane said. “It’s a big offseason for him. He’s already told us that he plans to link up with Josh (Allen) out in California, which will be good for those guys to continue to get more reps.” Drops (13 on 94 career targets) have been Knox’s biggest issue thus far. Buffalo has yet to sign an impact free-agent, though, instead adding former Seahawk Jacob Hollister. If the depth chart remains favorable, Knox should have some streaming value in 2021. Just keep in mind that Buffalo ranked 2nd league-wide last year in percentage of 4-WR sets. With Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, Emmanuel Sanders and Gabe Davis, the position remains one of strength.

Bills WRs Stefon Diggs (oblique) and Cole Beasley (knee) are active for today's game against the Colts. Diggs was expected to play, but Beasley had been genuinely questionable. He carries attractive upside against an Indy defense that tends to funnel action to the middle in the passing game. Of course, he also carries some risk of re-injury or playing limited snaps. Keep both aspects in mind as you set your lineups for the Wild Card round.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs is "a go" for Saturday's playoff opener against the Colts, despite his oblique injury, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Expect to have Diggs available for fantasy lineups. Teammate Cole Beasley (knee) is also "confident" he'll be able to play through the knee issue that cost him Week 17. Garafolo reports, though, that the Bills will need to assess his condition before the game Saturday to determine his availability. Beasley figures to be a risky fantasy option even if he plays. We'll confirm the status on both wideouts when the inactives come out around 11:30 a.m. ET.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs (oblique) is listed as questionable for Saturday's Wild Card game vs. the Colts. He got in limited practices on Tuesday and Thursday, sitting out in between. We don't know much about this injury but would be surprised if it kept Diggs out this weekend. We'll see if we get any updates on his status between now and kickoff.

Bills QB Matt Barkley is expected to get "meaningful snaps" in today's game against the Dolphins, according to NFL Network's Michael Giardi. It's sure looking like Buffalo will rest a bunch of starters in this one. QB Josh Allen notably needs 40 passing yards to break the team's single-season record, so we might see him stay in just long enough to get there. We're expecting WR Stefon Diggs to be pulled early, too.

The Bills have made CB Tre'Davious White, DE Jerry Hughes and DE Mario Addison healthy scratches vs. the Dolphins today. That points to the team planning to rest starters in general over playing for the win. Keep that in mind if you've been planning to start QB Josh Allen or WR Stefon Diggs in a season-long lineup.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs (foot) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He's ready to rock for Monday night's game vs. the Patriots.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs (foot) was listed as a full participant in Thursday's practice. It's more confirmation that he'll be ready for his usual role vs. the Patriots on Monday night. Keep him locked into fantasy lineups.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs (foot) will practice on Wednesday, HC Sean McDermott said. We won't get the team's 1st official practice report for Monday night's game vs. the Patriots until tomorrow, but Diggs seems to be on track to play in that one.

NFL Network's Kim Jones reports that the Bills don't believe WR Stefon Diggs' foot injury is serious or that it'll affect his availability going forward. Exhale. We'll keep an eye on Diggs when Buffalo returns to practice next week, but it sounds like he'll be ready for next Monday night's game against the Patriots.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs was knocked out of Saturday's game against the Broncos in the 4th quarter with a foot injury. We'll update his status as soon as we know more. Diggs had a huge game before exiting, catching 11 of 13 targets for 147 yards. If he misses time, it'd mean more targets for WRs Cole Beasley, Gabriel Davis and John Brown, who seems set to return from his ankle injury next week.

Update: Per NFL Network's Kim Jones, Diggs was back on the sideline late in the game, "smiling and talking with teammates." That suggests that he avoided a serious injury.
