Stefon Diggs Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

The forecast for today's Patriots-Bills game calls for a chance of rain and 20 mph sustained winds with gusts over 30. That certainly puts a damper on the passing games. New England figured to go run-heavy anyway, so the bigger impact is on Josh Allen and Co. We'd also avoid both kickers in this game.

The Patriots have downgraded CB Stephon Gilmore (knee) to out for today's game against the Bills. That improves the matchup for Buffalo's lead wideout, Stefon Diggs.

Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore left Thursday's practice after he "tweaked" a knee, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The injury was apparently deemed minor after an MRI, but it's not yet clear whether it will keep him out of Sunday's game against the Bills. Losing Gilmore would improve the matchup for Buffalo WR Stefon Diggs.

As of 12:30 pm ET on Sunday, the Bills-Titans game remains on for Tuesday night. There's still plenty of time for that to change, so you'll need to decide for yourself whether you want to risk leaving Bills and Titans players in your lineups. It'd be nice to at least have backup options available from Monday night's Chargers-Saints game. We've left our full projections in place for Bills and Titans players in the Week 5 Rankings.

The Titans have shut down their facility again after a coach tested positive for COVID on Sunday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The team had gone a couple days without a positive and seemed on track to play the Bills on Tuesday night. But that's now in serious doubt. We'll continue tracking the situation, but Bills and Titans players should probably be on fantasy benches for now.

This week's Bills-Titans game has been moved to Tuesday at 6 pm ET, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That's only if Tennessee has no more positive COVID tests, though. It's unclear what will happen to this game if the Titans have more positives, but we know that it won't be part of Week 5. The good news is that it sounds like we'll know for sure whether we'll have Bills and Titans players available for fantasy lineups this week within the next 24 hours.

The Titans had 2 more players test positive for COVID on Wednesday morning, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. The team was expected to return to its facility today, but that can't happen now. Sunday's Titans-Bills game is now in serious jeopardy. Fantasy owners need to be prepared to be without players from those teams in Week 5.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams. Tyler Kroft will step in as Buffalo's lead TE but isn't a fantasy option. Knox's absence could mean an extra target or 2 for WRs Stefon Diggs and John Brown.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports that the Bills have worked out a trade for WR Stefon Diggs. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero adds that Diggs and a 7th-round pick will go to Buffalo in exchange for 1st-, 5th- and 6th-round picks from the Bills plus a 4th-rounder in 2021. (Buffalo's Round 1 pick is #22.) Diggs won't turn 27 until late November and still has 4 years left on his current contract. He's coming off consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons, with a career-best 17.9 yards per catch in 2019. Diggs should challenge John Brown for the role of top WR in Buffalo, but the move isn't likely to help his fantasy outlook. The Bills have ranked among the league's most run-heavy offenses since before HC Sean McDermott arrived in 2017. In addition to Brown, WR Cole Beasley remains to eat up some targets. Add in QB Josh Allen's accuracy issues, and you get a potentially frustrating fantasy outlook for Diggs. The new guy's arrival also dings the fantasy outlooks for Brown and Beasley, though Diggs can only help Allen's upside. Minnesota, meanwhile, finds a gaping hole in its WR corps opposite Adam Thielen. We'll see how the Vikings address that need this offseason.

ESPN's Courtney Cronin reports that the Vikings are "leaning heavily" toward resting the "bulk" of their starters in Sunday's game against the Bears. Minnesota is locked into the NFC's #6 seed. Cronin mentions QB Kirk Cousins as 1 starter who isn't expected to play. RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) is almost certain to be inactive. And we'd bank on WRs Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen getting the day off, too. QB Sean Mannion will get the start for the Vikings, making this an offense to try to avoid in Week 17 fantasy lineups. The Bears DST is a strong play.

Vikings QB Kirk Cousins admitted on Thursday that he's not sure how much or even if he'll play against the Bears this weekend. Minnesota is locked in as the NFC's #6 seed after Monday night's loss to the Packers. Cousins and his WRs are shaky Week 17 fantasy plays that we'd try to avoid. We're not expecting RBs Dalvin Cook (shoulder) and Alexander Mattison (ankle) to play vs. Chicago.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) won't play against the Lions today. Thielen is working to get scar tissue out of that injured hamstring, per Rapoport, but Minnesota is "optimistic" that he'll be back next week. WR Stefon Diggs and TE Kyle Rudolph are the 2 best fantasy bets in the Vikings passing game today.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) missed practice again on Thursday. He's not going to play against the Cowboys on Sunday night, leaving extra targets for WRs Stefon Diggs and Olabisi Johnson and TEs Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. After only getting in 2 limited practices this week, Diggs is a risk/reward WR2 in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) is expected to be active for today's game against the Falcons, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Diggs only got in 2 limited practices this week, so don't bank on him being at 100% for this one. He's a risk/reward Week 1 fantasy play.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Falcons. After sitting out Wednesday, Diggs was limited on Thursday and Friday. We’ll find out his game status by noon ET on Sunday, but Diggs hasn’t played well through injury as a pro. Consider him a risky WR2 in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. It's a step in the right direction, but it'd be nice to see him put in a full workout on Friday. Check back then for another update.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury. It's the 1st we've heard of it, but Diggs is now high on the Week 1 injury watch list. We'll see if he's able to get back on the field on Thursday.

The Vikings have hired Gary Kubiak as an "offensive advisor." He was originally reported to be taking Denver's OC job, but that evidently fell through. It's unclear exactly what Kubiak's role will be alongside OC Kevin Stefanski, but he brings 22 seasons of experience as an NFL HC or OC.
