Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs managed 63 catches - the second-lowest mark of his career - and was charged with a drop on 6.4 percent of his 94 targets - a dramatic increase from two percent in 2018 - but he still finished with a career-high 1,130 receiving yards in 2019 with the Minnesota Vikings due in part to averaging 13.1 yards before the catch per reception. That figure was more than double his 5.6 yards before the catch per reception the previous season.

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs was officially traded to the Buffalo Bills Friday, March 20, in exchange for a 2020 first-round draft choice, a 2020 fifth-round draft choice, a 2020 sixth-round draft choice and a 2021 fourth-round draft choice. The Bills will also receive a 2020 seventh-round draft choice in the trade.
Huddle Up: The Vikings likely will add to their receiver corps this offseason, but Adam Thielen is the only reliable fantasy option on the roster. He should be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs and a 2020 seventh-round draft pick were reportedly traded to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a first-, fifth- and a sixth-round pick in 2020 as well as a fourth-round pick in 2021 on Monday, March 16.
Huddle Up: The Vikings probably decided enough was enough as Diggs repeatedly expressed his displeasure with his role in Minnesota. With Diggs out of the way, Adam Thielen figures to be a target hog once again and return to fantasy WR1 status. Assuming the Vikings don't' draft a receiver early, Olabisi Johnson and Irv Smith Jr. should also see significant boosts in their roles as well.

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs was reportedly traded to the Buffalo Bills on Monday, March 16. Further details of the deal have yet to be disclosed.
Huddle Up: The Bills get their alpha receiver. Diggs spent the first part of his Vikings' career proving he was capable of being a high-volume wideout before emerging as a big-play wideout in 2019. In Buffalo, he should be able to do both without having to fight Adam Thielen for targets. The impact of this move in fantasy is probably a net positive for Diggs, although Buffalo's offense may not allow him enough volume to return to WR1 status,

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs will remain with the team in 2020, according to general manager Rick Spielman.
Huddle Up: Diggs went for a career-high 1,130 yards and 17.9 yards per catch last season, but he hasn't fully taken that next step from his 102-1,021-9 season two years ago. He had 55 fewer targets last season, and that YPC probably won't hold up. So this is about what you're going to get - a solid WR2 with peaks and valleys.

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs may be the subject of some trade calls this offseason, but he faces 'plenty long' odds of getting traded, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Diggs recently prompted discussion about potential unhappiness with his situation when he removed Vikings photos from his social media accounts.

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (illness) practiced in full Thursday, Jan. 9, and was removed from the injury report for his team's Divisional Round game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Diggs caught two of just three targets for 19 yards in the Wild Card Round matchup with the New Orleans Saints. He's the clear No. 2 option behind WR Adam Thielen most weeks and can even be outperformed by TE Kyle Rudolph. He's a risky option this week in a difficult matchup.

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (illness) returned to practice Thursday, Jan. 9, after missing the previous two days with an illness.
Huddle Up: Just needing some illness recovery time, Diggs should be good to go come Saturday's divisional-round game against the 49ers. He had a disappointing two-catch, 19-yard day on three targets in the wild-card win over the Saints -- and could be seen fuming about it on the sideline -- but Diggs could be in store for much bigger things Saturday if fellow WR Adam Thielen is hampered by the ankle injury he suffered in practice this week.

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (illness) has missed the last two practices because of an illness, but head coach Mike Zimmer said he believes Diggs will be available to play in the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need keep an eye on the situation to see if Diggs suffers any setbacks. He had a disappointing performance last week but should still be a starting receiver in fantasy leagues.
