|The Yin to Adam Thielen's Yang, Stefon Diggs was a tale of peaks and valleys during the 2017 season. He began the season looking like a bonafide #1 fantasy receiver with a 22-391-4 line over the first four games. He seemed to mesh very well with newly installed starter Case Keenum, but a 7-week stretch followed the hot start that saw Diggs only snag one more touchdown and fail to register 80 yards. A 3-game touchdown streak salvaged some value in the fantasy playoffs, but as a whole he was down a significant amount of receptions from 2016.
Diggs' 8 touchdowns last season (in only 14 games) were more than he combined in his previous two seasons, and I expect there to be a natural regression in 2018. He'll be breaking in yet another new quarterback this season in Kirk Cousins, whose deep ball skill-set actually matches well with Diggs. I just think too much of this passing game funnels through Thielen, as the offensive scheme won't change much even with a new signal caller at the helm. His role in the offense means he's going to be inconsistent on a weekly basis, as he'll mix WR1 weeks with WR4 weeks. Let's split the difference and say with a slight regression in touchdowns and a slight increase in yards and receptions, Diggs comes in at a low-end WR2.

FFToday's Take: Cook was trending toward being active all week, so owners should feel OK about plugging him into their lineups in a game where the Vikings may be relying on his ability to contribute in the passing game in the second half. Peters being active is a bit of a surprise, since it appeared he may have been seriously hurt in Week 3. Peters has not acted as a shadow to this point (and probably won't despite the absence of Aqib Talib), so Stefon Diggs owners should sweat his matchup.

Deal keeps dynamic WR in Minnesota for 5-6 years

FFToday's Take: Diggs is a huge fantasy asset and playmaker with a high ceiling and moderately high floor when healthy. He's worth a look in the early round of fantasy drafts.
