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.

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 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.

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.
