Stefon Diggs News

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.

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 ESPN.com, 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.

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.

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.

Candidate to rest in preseason finale

Coach Sean McDermott relayed Wednesday that QB Josh Allen, along with many of the Bills' key starters, a group that presumably includes Diggs, won't suit up for Friday's preseason finale against the Panthers,Alec White of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: As Week 1 approaches, Diggs and Gabriel Davis clearly top the Bills' wideout depth chart, so the coaching staff's focus Friday (in terms of the position) figures to be evaluated the team's complementary options ahead of looming roster cuts. Once the regular season commences, Diggs' high-volume role in an Allen-helmed offense will continue to yield high level fantasy dividends.

Two catches in preseason game

Diggs caught two receptions for 33 yards on two targets in Buffalo's preseason game against Denver on Saturday.

Analysis: It was a breezy tuneup game for the Bills offense, and Diggs was unsurprisingly among those who produced in his brief showing. Even with the seeming emergence of teammate Gabriel Davis (two catches for 47 yards and one touchdown on three targets), Diggs is clearly poised to produce as one of the top fantasy receivers again in 2022.

Likely unavailable Saturday

Diggs is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason opener, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The Bills seemingly are choosing not to play the majority of their starters to open the preseason. Expect Khalil Shakir, Isaiah Hodgins and Jake Kumerow to see extensive work among the Bills' pass catchers.

Secures four-year extension

Diggs agreed to terms on a four-year, $104 million contract extension with the Bills on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Diggs still had two years remaining on his five-year, $72 million contract, but after seeing the wide receiver market undergo a sea change this offseason, Buffalo decided not to wait things out. The four-year extension adds onto Diggs' previous contract, tying him to the Bills for the next six seasons. Diggs, who hasn't missed a regular-season game in his two years with Buffalo, racked up a career-high 1,535 receiving yards in 2020, and he set another career mark with 10 touchdowns in 2021. The 28-year-old will continue to enjoy his position as Josh Allen's top target heading into the 2022 campaign, a combination which has proven highly valuable for fantasy purposes.

Dismal showing in playoff loss

Diggs caught three of six targets for seven yards and added a two-point conversion in Sunday's 42-36 overtime loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: The Chiefs made sure Diggs wouldn't be the one that beat them in this one, allowing Gabriel Davis to have the game of his life (201 yards and four touchdowns) instead. Diggs still managed to make an impact by giving the Bills a three-point lead with 1:54 left in the fourth quarter by catching a two-point conversion in the back of the end zone. The teams exchanged 17 more points after that to get to overtime, where the Chiefs found the end zone to knock out Diggs and the Bills. He should resume his highly productive role as Josh Allen's top target next season, but this poor performance in the biggest game of the season will leave a sour taste in Diggs' mouth.

Quiet night in blowout win

Diggs brought in three of four targets for 60 yards during the Bills' 47-17 win over the Patriots in an AFC wild-card matchup Saturday night.

Analysis: The odds on Diggs not being on the receiving end of at least one score on a night when Josh Allen tossed five touchdowns were probably remote, but that's exactly what transpired in the blowout victory. The multi-time Pro Bowler did check in tied for second in receptions and as the runner-up in receiving yards behind Dawson Knox, but the fact Allen spread the wealth around and Buffalo also wasn't forced to pass much in the second half capped Diggs' fantasy contributions overall. The 28-year-old will have a chance to boost his production in a divisional-round battle versus either the Chiefs or Bengals next weekend.

Scores 10th TD in win

Diggs caught nine of 14 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Jets.

Analysis: He opened the scoring early in the first quarter on a 10-yard strike from Josh Allen, giving Diggs a career-high 10 TDs on the season. He also surpassed 100 receptions for the third time in the last four seasons, winding up with 103 catches on 164 targets for 1,225 yards. Diggs should be heavily involved again Saturday when the Bills host the Patriots in the wild-card round.

Five receptions in win

Diggs brought in five of nine targets for 52 yards in the Bills' 29-15 win over the Falcons on Sunday. He was also sacked on a pass attempt.

Analysis: Diggs led the Bills in receptions, receiving yards and targets on a day in which Josh Allen completed well under 50.0 percent of his passes and threw for just 120 yards at 4.6 yards per attempt. The 28-year-old has eclipsed 50 receiving yards in five of the last six games, but he did see a two-game touchdown streak snapped Sunday. He'll have one more chance to tune up for the postseason in Week 18 against a Jets defense that he posted a season-best 162-yard effort on back in Week 10.

Finds end zone in win over Pats

Diggs caught seven of 13 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-21 win over the Patriots.

Analysis: Diggs gave Buffalo a 17-7 second-quarter lead with a 12-yard touchdown catch, and his 19-yard catch in the fourth to convert 3rd-and-10 deep in Patriots territory set up Dawson Knox's game-sealing two-yard touchdown two plays later. The star wide receiver was targeted 13 times for the fourth time this season, matching his season high. Diggs has eight touchdowns in his last 10 games and will have an excellent opportunity to get right back into the end zone in Week 17 against the porous Falcons secondary.

Scores in tough matchup

Diggs caught four passes for 35 yards and one touchdown on seven targets against Carolina on Sunday.

Analysis: Often matching up against top corner Stephon Gilmore while his quarterback dealt with both a tweaked foot and a relentless pass rush, Diggs had a difficult assignment Sunday against the Panthers. A player with his talent and usage often has a high floor even in unfavorable situations, and this game was a good example of that. A road matchup against J.C. Jackson and the Patriots isn't any easier in Week 16, but Diggs has a recent history of getting the better of the Patriots, including at New England in 2020 (nine catches for 145 yards and three touchdowns on 11 targets).

Team-high yardage total in loss

Diggs secured seven of 13 targets for 74 yards in the Bills' 33-27 overtime loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Analysis: Diggs' yardage total paced the Bills on a busy day for the passing game, one that saw Josh Allen put the ball up on 54 occasions overall. The multi-time Pro Bowler's target total also led the team and tied for a season high. Despite the solid production, Diggs has now fallen short of the 100-yard mark in four straight games and eight of his last nine contests overall, leaving fantasy managers counting on him in their upcoming postseason contests hoping for a much-needed breakout effort in Week 15 at home against the Panthers.

Dec 12, 2021 6:15 PM EST


Makes four catches

Diggs caught four of seven targets for 51 yards in Monday night's 14-10 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: Diggs led the Bills in all major receiving categories despite extreme wind heavily restricting the passing game. While Diggs managed a game-long catch of 26 yards, he also narrowly missed out on a deeper touchdown during the first half. Given the bad weather as well as a tough matchup versus the Patriots, his overall performance was commendable, but warmer conditions could prove more favorable in Week 14 versus the Buccaneers.

Dec 6, 2021 8:28 PM EST


Seven catches in holiday win

Diggs brought in seven of nine targets for 74 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' 31-6 win over the Saints on Thursday night.

Analysis: Diggs paced the Bills in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the night and notched his seventh touchdown of the campaign on a five-yard grab early in the third quarter. The star wideout has posted at least five receptions in five of the last six contests, and with four touchdowns in the last three games, he heads into a Week 13 showdown with the Patriots on Monday night, Dec. 6.

Two short TDs in blowout loss

Diggs caught four of six targets for 23 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 41-15 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: Diggs' pair of scores salvaged a strong fantasy performance out of a subpar showing from the Bills in every phase of the game. He did well to get his feet down along the sideline to secure a six-yard touchdown in the first quarter and added a nine-yard score in the fourth, but it was all Colts in between. After scoring just one touchdown through five games this season, Diggs has found the end zone five times in the last five games heading into a Thanksgiving road tilt in New Orleans.

Nov 21, 2021 1:10 PM EST


Season-high yardage total in win

Diggs caught eight of 13 targets for 162 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 45-17 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Diggs did a significant chunk of his damage in the two-minute drill to close out the first half. With the Bills leading only 10-3, he hauled in a 47-yard deep ball before catching a 12-yard touchdown four plays later. That turned out to be the first of four consecutive Bills touchdowns, with the next three all coming on the ground in the third quarter. Diggs hasn't been able to replicate last year's phenomenal season, as he came in with just one other 100-yard receiving performance -- a 114-yard effort against Houston in Week 4. While he's proven he can beat up on the dregs of the NFL, Diggs is still searching for a signature performance against quality competition, which he'll look to deliver in Week 11 against the Colts.

Solid showing

Diggs caught six passes for 85 yards on eight targets against Jacksonville on Sunday.

Analysis: The Jaguars shocked Buffalo with a 9-6 upset and obliterated basically every component of the Bills offense, the one exception being Diggs. He led Buffalo in receiving yards, catching 75 percent of his targets at 10.6 yards per target on a day where quarterback Josh Allen completed just 66 percent of his passes at 5.6 yards per attempt. Admirably as Diggs played for his own part, it's still a disappointing box score and a missed opportunity in a season where Diggs has yet to truly break out the way he did in 2020. He'll have another good shot to do so against the Jets in Week 10.
