Diggs caught seven of 10 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-23 win over New England.

Analysis: Diggs gave the Bills some breathing room with a 49-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. He finishes the regular season with 108 catches for 1,429 yards and 11 touchdowns on 154 targets. Diggs will look to build on his stellar season when the Bills host the Dolphins in the wild-card round.

Returns to practice

Diggs (illness) returned to practice Friday, Alaina Getzenberg of reports.

Analysis: Diggs sat out Thursday's practice, but his ability to return the next day suggests his availability for Monday's game against the Bengals isn't in jeopardy. That notion won't be fully confirmed until the Bills release their final injury report Saturday, though.

Missing practice Thursday

Diggs (illness) won't practice Thursday, Alaina Getzenberg of reports.

Analysis: Getzenberg adds that coach Sean McDermott indicated that the Bills hope to have the wideout back on the field sooner rather than later this week, but Diggs' status is now worth monitoring as Monday night's game against the Bengals approaches. In his last outing, Diggs caught both of his targets for 26 yards in the team's 35-13 win over the Bears this past Saturday.

Underwhelming numbers in win

Diggs secured both targets for 26 yards in the Bills' 35-13 win over the Bears on Saturday.

Analysis: Diggs endured a rough afternoon in the frigid conditions of Soldier Field, turning in his lowest reception and yardage totals of the season. Josh Allen spread the ball around to nine different players overall, helping to keep Diggs' numbers modest. The first opportunity for Diggs to bounce back comes in a Week 17 road showdown against the Bengals on Monday night, Jan. 2.

Disappoints on nine targets

Diggs recorded five receptions on nine targets for 60 yards in Saturday's 32-29 win over Miami.

Analysis: Diggs led Buffalo with nine targets, though he managed only 6.7 yards per target. His biggest gain of the day came on a 20-yard catch early in the second quarter, but he was otherwise limited to short areas of the field. Diggs will remain the most consistent part of the Buffalo offense which gives him a safe floor of production, but he has failed to reach 100 receiving yards in each of his last five games, and he's also reached 90 yards just once in that span.

Limited output in Week 14 win

Diggs caught three of five targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Jets.

Analysis: After being held to four yards in the first half, Diggs promptly broke free for a 31-yard gain on Buffalo's second play of the third quarter, but he added just one more catch for two yards after that. He's far from the only prominent wide receiver to struggle against the Sauce Gardner-led Jets secondary, so Diggs should bounce back in Week 15 against the Dolphins, who allowed seven catches for 74 yards to Buffalo's No. 1 receiver in Miami's Week 3 win.

Paces pass catchers in win

Diggs secured seven of nine targets for 92 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' 24-10 win over the Patriots on Thursday night.

Analysis: Diggs paced the Bills in receptions, receiving yards and targets, and he brought in one of Josh Allen's two eight-yard first-half scoring tosses. The talented veteran wideout now has at least seven receptions in three of the last four games, and he's scored in three consecutive contests as well heading into a Week 14 home divisional showdown against the Jets a week from Sunday.

Finds end zone again

Diggs caught eight of 15 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 28-25 win over the Lions.

Analysis: After struggling to make a mark in the first half, Diggs came up huge down the stretch, catching a five-yard TD pass with less than three minutes left in the fourth quarter before hauling in a 36-yard strike from Josh Allen with 23 seconds left to help set up Tyler Bass' game-winning field goal. Diggs now has nine touchdowns on the season, one short of his career high, and he's also on pace for personal bests in catches and receiving yards heading into a crucial Week 13 road tilt against the Patriots.

Salvages quiet day with TD

Diggs brought in four of five targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' 31-23 win over the Browns on Sunday.

Analysis: Diggs was frustrated through almost the entirety of the first half, even leading to a sideline conference with head coach Sean McDermott that was caught on camera. However, he secured a five-yard touchdown grab just before the end of the first half to break the ice, and he went on to put together a reasonably productive second half relative to Allen's modest production overall. Diggs will aim for a more prolific effort in the same venue when the Bills return to Ford Field to tangle with the Lions on Thanksgiving afternoon.

Makes 12 catches in Week 10

Diggs caught 12 of 16 targets for 128 yards in Sunday's 33-30 overtime loss to the Vikings.

Analysis: While Diggs' longest catch went for only 25 yards, he consistently got open on short and intermediate routes to help the Bills march down the field. Buffalo led 27-10 in the third quarter before momentum swung Minnesota's way, but Diggs still crossed the 100-yard threshold for the sixth time in nine games. It wouldn't be surprising to see a similar performance from Josh Allen's favorite target at home against Cleveland in Week 11.

Nov 13, 2022 3:21 PM EST

Seven yards short of 100 in loss

Diggs caught five of 10 targets for 93 yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Diggs immediately introduced himself to rookie cornerback Sauce Gardner by running by him for a 42-yard gain on Buffalo's first offensive play. He spent most of the game matched up on D.J. Reed on the opposite side, though, and Reed did a decent job defending Diggs, highlighted by a key pass breakup with the game tied at 17 in the fourth quarter. Diggs came seven yards short of extending his triple-digit receiving yardage streak to four games, but he'll remain a set-and-forget option at wide receiver against the Vikings in Week 10.

Wins tough matchup on SNF

Diggs corralled six of eight targets for 108 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Packers.

Analysis: The matchup between Diggs and Jaire Alexander was highlighted prior to Sunday night's tilt, and the billing lived up to the hype after the two star players were locked in a heated verbal and physical battle from start to finish. Diggs got the last laugh after producing his third straight 100-plus yard performance with a touchdown in a victory for his squad. The 28-year-old now boasts a massive 55/764/7 line through seven games. Diggs is as good as WR1s come heading into a matchup against the Jets next Sunday.

May face worthy adversary

Diggs will likely see some of his coverage against Green Bay's Jaire Alexander on Sunday night, Grace Heidinger of the Bills' official site reports. Said the receiver: "He's definitely a competitor, he's a guy that competes at a high level, he finishes play, he's fast," Diggs said on Alexander. "So going against corners, I see the best corner every week."

Analysis: Alexander usually goes up against the opponent's best receiver, something everyone is expecting when the Bills meet the Packers in Week 8. While the matchup with the reeling Packers looks juicy for Diggs managers, this is something to keep in mind. Also, as much as Green Bay is struggling, the pass defense is ranked first in the NFL, while the run defense has getting gouged on a regular basis and ranks 27th. Diggs is nearly impossible to keep down, but we also wouldn't be surprised if this turns into one of his more modest days, especially if the heavily favored Bills jump out to a big lead.

Comes up big against KC

Diggs caught 10 of 13 targets for 148 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-20 win over Kansas City.

Analysis: For the second straight game and the fourth time this season, Diggs piled up more than 100 receiving yards and a touchdown, with his 17-yard TD grab midway through the third quarter Sunday giving the Bills a 17-10 lead. The 28-year-old will heading into Buffalo's Week 7 bye as one of only four wideouts in the league with more than 600 receiving yards through six games alongside Justin Jefferson, Tyreek Hill and Cooper Kupp.

Eclipses century mark in win

Diggs brought in eight of 11 targets for 102 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' 38-3 win over the Steelers on Sunday.

Analysis: Diggs comfortably paced the Bills in receptions and targets while checking in second to Gabe Davis in receiving yards. The All-Pro wideout also recorded his first touchdown grab since Week 2 on a 15-yard scoring connection with Josh Allen in the second quarter, and the 100-yard tally was his third of the season overall. Diggs will carry an elite 39-508-5 line into a Week 6 road showdown against the Chiefs.

Modest showing in Week 4 win

Diggs secured four of six targets for 62 yards in the Bills' 23-20 win over the Ravens on Sunday.

Analysis: Diggs turned in a relatively quiet performance by his lofty standards, even though his reception, yardage and target totals all paced or co-led the Bills on the afternoon. The Ravens did a solid job containing Buffalo's normally potent air attack overall, so the lack of prolific numbers for Diggs wasn't exactly surprising. Despite the modest showing, Diggs still eclipsed the 60-yard mark for the fourth time in as many games this season, and he'll aim to boost his numbers back up across the board at the expense of the Steelers in a Week 5 home matchup.

Oct 2, 2022 1:30 PM EST

Good to go for Week 4

Diggs isn't listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game in Baltimore.

Analysis: This confirms Diggs was only dealing with cramps when he missed a bunch of snaps in the second half of Sunday's loss in Miami. He finished with seven catches for 74 yards on 11 targets and 70 percent of snaps, after piling up 270 yards and four TDs the first two weeks of the season. The Bills have taken Diggs off the field a decent amount this year, but mostly on run plays, and he might not have to deal with hot weather again all season.

Sep 28, 2022 1:16 PM EST

Deals with dehydration late

Diggs secured seven of 11 targets for 74 yards in the Bills' 21-19 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. Per Alaina Getzenberg of, the star receiver exited the game late with what appeared to be cramping and was seen laying on the sideline.

Analysis: Diggs turned in his usual impressive statistical effort in the hotly contested divisional battle, but he simply appeared to run out of gas in the humid South Florida climate at a critical juncture in the game. Before exiting, Diggs was typically productive and led the Bills wideouts in targets while tying for second in receptions with Isaiah McKenzie. Assuming he's back to health, Diggs should be a full go for a road showdown with the Bills in Week 4.

Sep 25, 2022 3:04 PM EST

Three TDs in blowout win

Diggs caught 12 of 14 targets for 148 yards and three touchdowns in Monday's 41-7 win over the Titans.

Analysis: Diggs got wide open in the end zone for a four-yard touchdown on fourth down in the second quarter. In the third, he got behind the Titans secondary for a 46-yard touchdown, then kept his concentration to secure a bobbling catch for a 14-yard touchdown. Josh Allen's top target in the high-powered Bills passing game has opened the season with 20 catches for 270 yards and four touchdowns through two games. Even a date with shutdown Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard in Week 3 is unlikely to slow Diggs down.

Sep 19, 2022 7:44 PM EST

Long TD in season-opening win

Diggs brought in eight of nine targets for 122 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' 31-10 win over the Rams on Thursday night.

Analysis: Diggs' near-perfect opening night was punctuated by a 53-yard touchdown grab down the right side of the field in the fourth quarter that served as the final score of the night. Diggs flew by Jalen Ramsey on a play where the star cornerback appeared to be expecting deep help, a microcosm of a night where almost everything went right for Buffalo. Diggs' reception, yardage and target totals were all team highs, affording him no shortage of momentum going into a Week 2 home battle against the Titans on Monday night, Sept. 19.
