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.

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.

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.
