Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs roasted the Miami Dolphins in Week 4, catching 6-of-7 targets for 120 yards and three touchdowns in the 48-20 victory. Diggs put his fingerprints all over this one. He broke free for an 11-yard score early in the second quarter after drawing a pass interference penalty earlier in the drive. On Buffalo's highlight of the day among many nominees, Diggs shrugged off an illegal touching flag to wrestle a ball away from two Miami adversaries for an incredible 55-yard touchdown catch-and-run to cap off a stellar 107-yard, two-score first half. The 29-year-old superstar made a sweet move to juke a defender and add a third score from 13 yards out for good measure. Diggs' 16-game pace through four games shows a 124/1596/16 receiving line. That'll do. The Jacksonville Jaguars await in Week 5 next Sunday at their home away from home in London, where Diggs will be a WR1.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs is off to a quietly great start in 2023, gobbling up 25-of-32 targets for 279 yards and one touchdown covering three games as he enters Week 4's highly-anticipated divisional duel with the Miami Dolphins. With the Dolphins defense missing superstar cornerback Jalen Ramsey (knee), Diggs still has to deal with frequent coverage from multi-time Pro Bowler Xavien Howard. Diggs has fared very well against the Fins during Howard's tenure, though, averaging a healthy nine targets with 5.7 catches for 73.1 yards and four touchdowns in seven games since 2018. Holding only three deep targets on the young campaign, the three-time Pro Bowler may be needed as more of a vertical threat if the Bills hope to keep pace with Miami's humming offense. Diggs is a high-floor, high-ceiling WR1 in a matchup featuring the slate's highest implied point total.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs caught 8-of-12 targets for 111 yards in Week 3's 37-3 romp over the Washington Commanders. It was just another day at the office for the three-time Pro Bowler, who flaunted his route-running expertise all day on Sunday. Diggs was showered with targets, drawing 12 of them against an outclassed secondary while no other Bill saw greater than four on 32 Josh Allen pass attempts. The 29-year-old came loose on a broken play with Allen scrambling out of the pocket for a signature 30-yard catch to set the tone in the first quarter. He also helped pull Buffalo out of their own end zone on another 30-yarder during their first drive of the second half. Diggs later hauled in a 20-yard pass near the end of the third period to surpass the 100-yard threshold for the day. The superstar wideout will rate among Week 4's elite WR1 plays in a probable shootout with the white-hot Miami Dolphins.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs played second fiddle to teammate Gabe Davis' 92 yards and a score with 66 scoreless yards in Week 2's triumph over the Las Vegas Raiders. The 29-year-old next does battle with the Washington Commanders secondary, who just saw rookie Marvin Mims Jr. dust them up for 113 yards and a touchdown on two targets last Sunday. Diggs likely draws the more favorable matchup between himself and Davis in Week 3, as he looks to pick on first-round rookie Emmanuel Forbes Jr. in this one, while Davis perhaps deals more regularly with top Commanders corner Kendall Fuller. Having caught 17-of-20 targets for 168 yards to start the campaign after a rocky offseason, Diggs has relieved any fear that his harmony with quarterback Josh Allen would be compromised in 2023. The three-time Pro Bowler rates as a high-floor WR1 in this one with four red-zone targets thus far.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs brought in all seven of his targets for 66 yards in Sunday's 38-10 win over the Las Vegas Raiders. The 29-year-old assembled a quiet day by his hefty standards, totaling five of his seven catches in the first half before the game got out of hand. It was still a solid PPR day for the superstar wideout, who took a bit of a back seat to teammate Gabe Davis' 92 yards and a touchdown in a contest where Las Vegas didn't really muster much of a fight. Regardless, Diggs will be back in the top-tier WR1 mix in a Week 3 road matchup with the Washington Commanders, who were just roasted on Sunday by rookie Marvin Mims Jr. for 113 yards and a score.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs hung a massive 10/102/1 receiving line on 13 targets against Sauce Gardner and company of the vaunted New York Jets defense in the season opener. Separation came at a premium in that one, but the 29-year-old will face a much lighter task in Week 2 versus the Las Vegas Raiders' combination of 30-year-old Marcus Peters and 2023 fourth-rounder Jakorian Bennett. Despite neither of which appearing particularly intimidating, they were mostly unchallenged by quarterback Russell Wilson in Week 1 and could be in for a rude awakening in trying to hold Diggs in check on Sunday. The superstar wideout is a cinch WR1 play across all formats for Buffalo's home opener with the Bills forecasted to be one of Week 2's highest-scoring offenses.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs came down with 10-of-13 targets for 102 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 22-16 loss to the New York Jets. The 29-year-old notably got the best of Sauce Gardner at one point for a nice 18-yard catch-and-run in the second quarter. Diggs then got free later that series for a five-yard score with Josh Allen chased out of the pocket. The target-hogging Diggs represented one of Buffalo's lone fantasy bright spots, helping keep the offense somewhat afloat on a night where Allen was stifled virtually every time he tried to push the ball down the field. Without much competition for looks in Buffalo's pass-heavy approach, Diggs should rank as a weekly top-flight WR1 going forward. Treat the three-time Pro Bowler as such in a cushy Week 2 draw versus the Las Vegas Raiders for Buffalo's home opener.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs looks to put behind an offseason of drama in Week 1 against the New York Jets. The 29-year-old's minicamp "holdout" did not last long and he enters 2023 on the heels of three straight 100-catch seasons since arriving in Orchard Park in 2020. Diggs posted mixed results in two games opposing New York's secondary last year, logging 5/93 and 3/37 receiving lines. Gang Green's defense shut down opposing WRs for the fewest fantasy points per game (24.1) in 2022. Even though Diggs plays primarily on the right side of the field, he should draw plenty of coverage from '22 Defensive Rookie of the Year Sauce Gardner, who mostly plays on the left side. The nature of Buffalo's aggressive offense should keep Diggs heavily involved early and often enough to warrant mid-tier WR1 status despite the imposing matchup in their season opener.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs totaled two catches on five targets for 22 receiving yards in Saturday's 27-15 preseason loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. To nobody's surprise, the 29-year-old was Josh Allen's favorite target in the first quarter of this one. Diggs' 484 targets since joining Buffalo in 2020 trail only Davante Adams (498) over this interval. Having attained a 100-catch campaign in each of his first three years with the Bills, the three-time Pro Bowl wideout is a fine choice for fantasy managers near the end of their draft's first round this summer.
