Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Lions. Adam Thielen, Cordarrelle Patterson and Laquon Treadwell expected to serve as Vikings' top 3 WRs. Thielen is the best fantasy bet and on the lower-end WR3 radar.

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.
