The Vikings have fired OC John DeFilippo. He was a hot name this offseason but lasts just 13 games in Minnesota. DeFilippo's offense has underachieved, ranking just 17th in yards and 20th in points. We also heard whispers that he and HC Mike Zimmer weren't on the same page, with Zimmer preferring a run-heavy offense and DeFilippo favoring the pass. We'll see who the Vikings tab as their interim OC, but the change could mean more carries for RB Dalvin Cook going forward.

Update: The Vikings have promoted former QBs coach Kevin Stefanski to interim OC. Stefanski has been with the team since 2006 but has never called plays.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and reportedly woke up with swelling in that knee this morning. He also figures to see a bunch of CB Stephon Gilmore today. It all makes Diggs a risky WR2 in fantasy lineups.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs' injured knee swelled up overnight, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. "He now needs to test it pregame to determine whether he can play today," Schefter adds. So we won't find out Diggs' official status until 3 pm ET. If you have another viable option, we'd send Diggs to the bench. If he ends up active, he'll be a risk/reward WR2.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs has said he'll play through the knee issue that has him questionable against the Patriots. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that's "the plan." Diggs will carry some risk after only being able to put in 1 limited practice this week.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Patriots. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. But Diggs said Thursday that he expects to play, and insider Ben Goessling reported on Friday afternoon that Diggs is expected to play. Keep him penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) said after missing Thursday's practice that he expects to play against Patriots this weekend. Players tend to be over-optimistic about their availability, but Diggs did appear to make it out of last week's game OK. We'll see if he gets back on the field tomorrow.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) was not on the field for the start of Thursday's practice. He was wearing a wrap on his left knee, according to insider Chris Tomasson. Diggs now appears iffy for this weekend's game against the Patriots. We'll see if he can get back on the practice field tomorrow.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs did not practice on Wednesday and is listed on the injury report with a knee. It's the 1st we've heard of it. This could just be a rest day for Diggs, but check back tomorrow for another update on his status.

Vikings WRs Adam Thielen (low back, calf) and WR Stefon Diggs (ribs) are both off the final Week 11 injury report. Thielen was limited all week, but we’ve heard nothing to suggest that he won’t be a full-go on Sunday night vs. Chicago. Diggs put in a full week of practice.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (rib) put in a full practice on Wednesday. He's good to go for Sunday night's game against the Bears' 15th-ranked WR defense.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (ribs) told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that he participated in the team's post-bye-week practice on Monday. “I know I will play” against the Bears on Sunday night, he added. It's worth noting that Diggs said he'd play back in Week 9 before ending up inactive. But we're tentatively expecting him back this weekend.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (rib) is inactive for today’s game against the Lions. He’ll get a Week 10 bye to heal up. Laquon Treadwell and Aldrick Robinson figure to serve as Minnesota’s #2 and #3 WRs today, but both are just fantasy fliers. Adam Thielen should soak up a boatload of targets.

The Vikings expect to go without WR Stefon Diggs today against the Lions, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Diggs is dealing with a rib injury that kept him out of practice all week. His absence would likely mean more playing time for Aldrick Robinson. The switch certainly dings the upside of QB Kirk Cousins, but we wouldn't dramatically alter his fantasy outlook.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (rib) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He didn’t practice all week and seems to be in legitimate danger of missing this one. We’ll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. If active, Diggs will come with more risk than usual but will still be worth getting into most fantasy lineups.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (rib) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He did tell reporters this morning that he "absolutely" expects to play against the Lions this weekend. We'll see if he's able to get back on the practice field tomorrow.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs missed Wednesday's practice with a rib injury. ESPN's Courney Cronin believes Diggs suffered the injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday night's loss to the Saints. He played the rest of the game, so we're tentatively expecting him to suit up this weekend vs. Detroit. But we'll continue to keep a close eye on him the rest of the week.

Sustained winds around 20 mph with gusts over 40 are expected for today's Vikings-Jets game. That'll impact the deep-passing and kicking games. We've moved Kirk Cousins, Sam Darnold, Dan Bailey and Jason Myers down the Week 7 Rankings. Cousins remains in QB1 territory, though, because he tends to throw a bunch of short passes anyway. WRs Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs should also remain locked into fantasy lineups.

Jets CB Trumaine Johnson is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Vikings because of a quad injury thta continued to keep him out of practice all week. Johnson's absence doesn't really matter for IDP purposes, but it'll help Vikings WR Stefon Diggs' outlook. Jets slot CB Buster Skrine also remains out for the 2nd straight week with a concussion.

The Vikings and WR Stefon Diggs have agreed to a 5-year extension, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It tacks on to the final season of his rookie deal, locking him up in Minnesota through the 2023 campaign. Although injuries have gotten in the way -- he's missed 8 games through 3 NFL seasons -- Diggs has averaged 5.0 catches and 61.8 yards per game. He's finished top 14 among WRs in PPR points per game each of the last 2 years. Turning just 25 in November, the arrow is still pointing up on Diggs.

Update: Diggs' extension has a base salary of $72 million and can be worth up to $81 million. He got $40 million in guarantees.
