Stefon Diggs Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The forecast for today's Vikings-Eagles game calls for winds of 20-30 mph with gusts of 40+. That's certainly enough to impact the passing and kicking games. Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph, Jordan Matthews and Zach Ertz are the only guys from these passing games you should have been considering anyway. All 4 do enough short-range stuff to stay in fantasy lineups. Vikings-Eagles has an over/under of 39.5, the lowest of the week.

The Vikings listed WR Stefon Diggs (groin) as questionable for this weekend's game against the Eagles. He practiced all week, though, including a full workout on Friday. Diggs should be available for a full slate of snaps on Sunday, but he's a low-end WR3 vs. a tough Philly defense.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) returned to practice on Wednesday. He missed Minnesota's last game back in Week 5 and was not on the field for Monday's post-bye-week practice. It now looks like he's on track to play against the Eagles this weekend, though. We'll continue to keep an eye on him over the next few days.

The Vikings returned to the practice field Monday after their Week 6 bye, but they did so without WR Stefon Diggs. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that Diggs sat out with the groin injury that cost him the Week 5 game and "has bothered him for a couple weeks." We'll certainly be watching his status throughout the week. WR Jarius Wright also missed practice. WR Adam Thielen reportedly ran as the lead wideout.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. He’ll get a Week 6 bye to heal up. Charles Johnson, Cordarrelle Patterson, Adam Thielen, Laquon Treadwell and Jarius Wright will handle WR duties for Minnesota today. It's a situation to avoid against a tough pass defense. TE Kyle Rudolph is a good bet to lead the Vikings in targets.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Texans. As insider Matt Vensel notes, HC Mike Zimmer rarely plays guys who don't practice. Diggs needs to be on fantasy benches. His absence will leave Minnesota with WRs Charles Johnson, Cordarrelle Patterson, Adam Thielen, Laquon Treadwell and Jarius Wright. It's a situation to avoid against a tough pass defense. TE Kyle Rudolph is a good bet to lead the Vikings in targets.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's been listed on the injury report with the groin for the past 2 weeks, but this is the 1st time he's missed 2 straight workouts. We haven't heard anything to suggest that Diggs is in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Texans, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph missed Wednesday's practice with a clavicle/rib injury. We'll keep an eye on Rudolph's participation the next 2 days, but we'd bet on this being a minor issue. Minnesota also held out WR Stefon Diggs (groin) and starting RT Andre Smith (triceps) in a practice that came less than 48 hours after their Monday night win over the Giants.

11:34am EDT 9/25/16

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) is active for today’s game against the Panthers. He didn’t practice on Friday but wasn’t even listed on the final injury report. Diggs is safe to get into fantasy lineups.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs is dealing with a groin injury and was held out of Friday’s practice. He’s not listed on the final injury report, though, meaning he’s in no danger of missing this weekend’s game against the Panthers. We’ll keep an eye on him, but Diggs is safe to keep in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

The Vikings have acquired QB Sam Bradford from the Eagles in exchange for a 2017 1st-round pick and a conditional 4th-rounder in 2018, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's an aggressive move from a Minnesota team that's in a championship window right now. Bradford certainly isn't an All-Pro, but he's certainly an upgrade over Shaun Hill. We'll see if Minnesota can get Bradford ready for its opener in just 8 days, but he obviously won't be a Week 1 fantasy option. The Vikings will remain a run-first team, so Bradford will struggle to ascend beyond QB2 territory. His arrival is good news for RB Adrian Peterson, WR Stefon Diggs and the rest of Minnesota's skill-position guys. Meanwhile, Bradford's departure from Philadelphia figures to speed up QB Carson Wentz's debut. The rookie is still recovering from his rib injury and is a long shot to be under center Week 1. But we'd bet on him being there by October. QB Chase Daniel figures to open the season as Philly's starter.

Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater suffered a "significant" injury to his left knee in practice Tuesday, HC Mike Zimmer told the media late Tuesday afternoon. Zimmer said the team didn't know the extent of the injury yet but that Bridgewater's hope for playing this season "doesn't look good right now." Shaun Hill steps in as the starter for however long Bridgewater will miss. The 36-year-old obviously means a step down from the 3rd-year starter, but Hill has started 6+ games in 3 other seasons and fared OK. He needs only to be decent in a Vikings offense that leans heavily on the running game and gains support from an ascending defense. Going from Bridgewater to Hill dings the upside for WRs Stefon Diggs, Charles Johnson and Laquon Treadwell a bit. We've knocked them down our WR rankings, but none was an early-round option to begin with. A sluggish pass offense could also hurt RB Adrian Peterson by allowing defenses to stack the box more -- like we saw with Rams opponents vs. Todd Gurley late last year. But Peterson already saw plenty of that in 2015. He's still a fine pick anywhere in the 1st half of Round 2.

1500 ESPN's Bo Mitchell believes Vikings WR Charles Johnson "is in line to start in Tennessee in Week 1." That'd be alongside Stefon Diggs and ahead of Laquon Treadwell. Johnson has been working with the starters in training camp so far, while reviews on Treadwell's play have been mixed. He'll be "phased in over time," according to Mitchell. We're still not ruling out the possibility of Treadwell beating out Johnson for the Week 1 starting job, but fantasy owners can't be counting on him as an early-season asset. Johnson remains just a late-round flier after flopping in his starting shot last year.

Wind will be a factor in today's Vikings-Raiders game.  The forecast at kickoff calls for 24 mph winds with gusts up to 40 mph.  That's enough to bench Ks Blair Walsh and Sebastian Janikowski.  Both passing games get slight downgrades.  Minnesota, especially, figures to go run-heavy with Adrian Peterson.

Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) has received full clearance to start Sunday's game against the Raiders.  It's excellent news for Minnesota's skill-position players, especially WR Stefon Diggs.  Oakland has allowed 2+ passing scores in 7 of 8 games, making Bridgewater a high-end QB2 for Week 10.
