|Diggs has proven to be everything you want in a WR2. He's scores touchdowns (17 over the past two seasons), flirts with WR1 weeks (four 100-yard games and four double digit reception games) and gets enough targets to avoid some truly horrific games.
After a solid 2017, Diggs had a career year in 2018, making sweet music with his new quarterback Kirk Cousins. Diggs reached 100 receptions and 1,000 yards for the first time in his career, and the 9 touchdowns also marked a career high. While I was a little surprised with the drop in yards-per-reception average (way too many lost yards on ill-executed bubble screens) Diggs was a difference maker last season. So how will he fare in what looks to be a less pass-centric offense? I see a bigger drop-off for Diggs than I do for Thielen. It's going to be near impossible to repeat the 149 targets he received last year (this was 37 more than his previous career high) with his role on the offense unchanged. And although he usually is able to play through them, Diggs gets nicked up a bit, missing 9 games over his 4-year career.
Even with a slight regression, I'd still be happy to take Diggs as a reliable WR2 that has a chance to be a week winner a few times throughout the year.

Questionable with hamstring injury

|Despite nursing a strained hamstring that has him listed as questionable for Sunday, Vikings WR Stefon Diggs is expected to play against the Falcons, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Diggs got in limited practices Thursday and Friday. He's had history of performing poorly when playing with injury so fantasy owners need to cautious with him today against the Falcons.
| Stefon Diggs questionable for Week 1|
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 6, 4:35 pm
|All 53 #Vikings suited up for final open practice ahead of Sunday’s season opener.
- Stefon Diggs (hamstring) practicing again. Limited yesterday.
- Hughes (knee) practicing, and returning punts at start of session. Been limited.
- Beebe, Abdullah and Johnson also fielding punts. (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Diggs missed practice Wednesday and was limited on Thursday. Head coach Mike Zimmer gave did not confirm Diggs would play on Sunday only to say "We'll see". Diggs' owners should have plan B in place but Minnesota does play an early game so we'll know 90 minutes before kickoff if he's inactive.
