Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs made an instant impression on QB Josh Allen when the two were able to work together recently in Florida. 'It was very, very awesome to see just the amount of detail that he puts into his craft, how communicative he was, how willing he was to learn,' Allen said of Diggs. 'And he wasn't there for himself. He was there for the betterment of the team and wanted to hang out with the guys and wanted to learn and get to know the guys and I thought that was pretty special. You hear all these crazy stories in the media, and I think he's had a bad rep where he was at.'
Huddle Up: Diggs posted a career high in receiving yards (1,130) in 2019 despite finishing with 39 fewer receptions than he had the previous season. Fantasy-wise, he's finished as a WR2 in each of the last three seasons, but the move to Buffalo and his new QB aren't exactly fantasy friendly. Value him as a high-end WR3.

Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs has only worked with QB Josh Allen during drills at the recent workouts in Florida.
Huddle Up: The team has not been able to hold offseason workouts, but Allen and Diggs have found a way to work on building their chemistry. Diggs likely will be the top option in the passing game this upcoming season and should be considered a No. 2 wide receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs hasn't had a chance to build on-field chemistry with QB Josh Allen during the ongoing coronavirus shutdown, but head coach Sean McDermott says he's not overly worried. 'I am concerned about it, but I guess not worried at this point,' McDermott said Friday, May, 1, while also noting every team faces its share of challenges. 'What you do is try to adjust and adapt, and like we said before, our theme this offseason has been: `Find a way.''
Huddle Up: Diggs has finished as a top-18 fantasy wide receiver in each of the last three seasons, but the lack of offseason work could loom as a significant issue with players switching teams and trying to adjust to a new offense. Value him as a low-end WR2.

Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs wasn't shopped around in trade talks, according to Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman Tuesday, April 21, but he said the offer from the Bills was too good to turn down. 'We had no intention of trading Diggs at the combine. Great player for us,' said Spielman. Spielman said the deal was good for both the player and the team. The Vikings received a 2020 first-round pick, a 2020 fifth-round pick, a 2020 sixth-round pick and a 2021 fourth-round pick in exchange for Diggs and a seventh-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: The loss of Diggs, and WR Laquon Treadwell in free agency, leaves the Vikings with little receiving depth behind No. 1 option Adam Thielen. Olabisi Johnson, Tajae Sharpe and Chad Beebe are the next three options on the depth chart. The Vikings are expected to target a rookie wideout late in the first or second rounds of the draft and they'd be likely to automatically assume a large role in the offense.

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.
