Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Rams. He put in a full practice on Friday, so the hammy isn’t a concern. Diggs is a fine WR2, despite the tough matchup.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) is probable for this weekend’s game against the Rams. He put in a limited practice on Thursday and a full workout on Friday. The hammy isn’t a concern. And despite the tough matchup, Diggs remains a fine WR2.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) returned to practice on Thursday.  The injury was never believed to be serious.  The rookie has a tough Week 9 matchup against the Rams, but he's fine to get into fantasy lineups as a lower-end WR2.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs did not practice on Wednesday and is on the injury report with a hamstring issue.  The Minneapolis Star Tribune thought the rookie hurt his knee on his last catch of Week 8, but it turns out he injured his hammy.  The issue is "believed to be minor," according to insider Chris Tomasson.  We'll have another update on Diggs tomorrow.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs "hobbled to the sideline" with a "banged up left knee" after his final catch in Sunday's win over the Bears, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. We haven't seen anything further on the issue, and Diggs described it after the game as getting "shook up." We're not worried about the situation at this point, but we'll watch for any further info this week. Charles Johnson entered for a 35-yard catch to set up the game-winning FG, but Diggs again led the Vikings with 6 receptions for 95 yards and a TD.

Vikings WR Charles Johnson (ribs) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He’s expected to play behind WRs Mike Wallace and Stefon Diggs and isn’t a viable Week 7 fantasy starter.

Vikings insider Ben Goessling is "told" WR Stefon Diggs will start Sunday's game against the Lions, despite the return of WR Charles Johnson.  Diggs earned it with 13 catches for 216 yards over Minnesota's last 2 games.  Johnson could still steal a few looks, but Diggs is on the WR3 radar in a plus matchup.

Vikings WR Charles Johnson (ribs) put in a full week of practice and is probable for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He reportedly split 1st-team reps with WR Stefon Diggs in practice this week. Diggs remains the superior Week 7 fantasy play, but Johnson’s return adds some risk.

Vikings WR Charles Johnson (ribs) put in full practices on Wednesday and Thursday.  He's set to return after missing the last 2 games.  Johnson was disappointing in 3 games before going down and is now contending with the emergence of rookie Stefon Diggs.  Johnson shouldn't be in Week 7 fantasy lineups, but we'll keep a close eye on how snaps and targets are divvied in this WR corps.

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer refused to name WR Stefon Diggs a starter on Monday, but he didn't deny it either.  “You don’t lose your starting job because of injury but you lose your starting job because of performance," Zimmer said, referring to WR Charles Johnson's recent absence. “But, no, I have not decided that yet."  Johnson mustered just 6 balls for 46 yards in Minnesota's first 3 games.  Diggs has racked up 13 grabs for 216 yards over the last 2.  We'll see how the snaps and targets are divvied when Johnson returns, likely this coming week.  But Diggs is worth rostering in all fantasy leagues.

Vikings WR Charles Johnson (ribs) is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. Jarius Wright and Stefon Diggs will play behind #1 WR Mike Wallace.

The Vikings snagged WR Stefon Diggs in the 5th round of the 2015 NFL Draft.  A 5-star recruit coming out of high school, Diggs racked up 1,896 all-purpose yards as a freshman.  But he failed to build on that in his final 2 seasons, due at least in part to a broken leg in 2013 and a lacerated kidney in 2014.  Diggs goes 6'0, 195 with 4.4 speed and explosive change-of-direction ability.  He creates lots of separation and is dangerous after the catch.  Diggs struggles against physical DBs, though, and might be stuck as slot receiver in the pros.  He'll battle with Cordarrelle Patterson and Jarius Wright for playing time behind Mike Wallace and Charles Johnson.
