2020 Fantasy Outlook
On a per-play basis, Diggs had a season for the ages last season. Among the 40 receivers with at least 90 targets, Diggs' 17.9 YPC was second only to Kenny Gollday's 18.3, and his 12.0 YPT was first by a mile - a full yard more than No. 2 Chris Godwin's. Moreover, despite only 94 targets, Diggs tied for the league lead with eight catches of 40-plus yards and was tied for sixth with 20 catches of 20-plus. This was such a far cry from 2018's high-volume, low-output performance (10.0 YPC, 6.9 YPT), it's hard to accept these were back-to-back seasons from the same player. At 6-0, 191, Diggs has just average size, and his 4.46 timed speed is good but nothing special. Diggs made his living on quickness, crisp route running, reliable hands and torching the Eagles' sorry secondary in Week 6. The Vikings traded Diggs to Buffalo this offseason, so he'll ply his trade with the strong-armed but less accurate Josh Allen. The Bills were tied for 25th with only 513 passing attempts last year, and they already have a quality deep threat in John Brown, so Diggs might transition back to being an intermediate target. And with Cole Beasley lining up in the slot, Diggs' volume probably won't see too much of a spike. Read Past Outlooks

$Signed a five-year, $72 million contract with the Vikings in July of 2018. Traded to the Bills in March of 2020.
Has contract restructured
WRBuffalo Bills
August 5, 2020
Diggs agreed to a restructured contract with the Bills on Wednesday, increasing his compensation for the 2020 season by $3.3 million to $14.8 million, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
On top of that, Diggs' guaranteed money for 2021 will go up $7.7 million to $11 million, while his combined 2022-23 take will decrease from $25.55 million to $22.67 million. According to Garafolo, the aforementioned adjustments were agreed to when he was dealt to Buffalo on March 16, but the emerging COVID-19 pandemic delayed them until Diggs was able to report to the team. With his new squad, Diggs will be operating in tandem with John Brown in an offense that -- like his previous one in Minnesota -- is among the more run-focused in the NFL. Such a scheme didn't slow him down, though, as he produced a 63-1,130-6 line on 94 targets last year.

If you thought Adam Thielen lived off dink-and-dunk plays, take a look at Stefon Diggs' stats - 102 catches for 1,021 yards and just 6.9 YPT, ahead of only Zay Jones, Jarvis Landry, Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Crabtree among 100-target wideouts. Diggs has good hands (only four drops), but it's easy to hang on to passes when you're standing so close to the quarterback (8.8 average depth of target). The Vikings' poor offensive line play undoubtedly impacted the play calling as both Diggs and Thielen made fewer big plays (Diggs had only 13 20-plus- and two 40-plus-yard catches on 149 targets). At 6-0, 191, with 4.46 speed, Diggs is quick and athletic, runs excellent routes and has strong ball skills - in the rare event he gets a downfield throw. He also saw 18 red-zone looks and cashed in six for scores, so he has a decent TD floor for a wideout his size. Diggs has been an efficient player in the past - 8.9 YPT in 2017 and never less than 8.0 before last year - so as long as Kirk Cousins has time to throw, we'd expect Diggs, still only 25, to improve his per-play production. (And the Vikings upgraded their interior offensive line this offseason.) Once again, Thielen is his only real competition for targets, so there should be plenty of opportunities for both.
Diggs made one of the most improbable and spectacular catches of all time to knock the Saints out of the playoffs, and his regular-season work was nothing to sneeze at, either. Despite missing two games, Diggs scored eight times and bumped up his efficiency to 8.9 YPT (9th among the league's 38 90-target WR). Part of that was due to Case Keenum taking over for the conservative Sam Bradford, and Diggs will have another competent downfield thrower in Kirk Cousins this year. At 6-0, 191, Diggs has just average size, and his 4.46 speed is good but nothing special. But Diggs is quick, runs excellent routes and has strong ball skills and reliable hands. Adam Thielen is a co-No. 1 target, and assuming Cousins and new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo don't shake things up too much, both players should share in the passing game spoils. One negative is the presence of red-zone specialist Kyle Rudolph, who had nine targets inside the 10 last year, along with a presumably healthy Dalvin Cook.
Nagging injuries derailed Diggs' second season and also opened the door for Adam Thielen to become the team's co-No. 1 target. At 6-0, 191, Diggs has only average size, but he possesses good speed (4.46 40), runs good routes and has strong ball skills. He didn't run many deep routes, however -- only three catches of 40 yards and 10 for 20 or more -- and he wasn't used heavily in the red zone (12 looks). As such, he scored only three times. While Diggs averaged a respectable 8.1 YPT, it came on only 10.8 YPC, meaning he was padding his catch percentage (and Sam Bradford's record-setting completion percentage) with short routes. Diggs worked this offseason to improve his conditioning in the interest of staying healthier and should again be one of Bradford's main targets. However, Thielen isn't going away, and the team signed Michael Floyd.
A fifth-round pick last season, Diggs rapidly ascended the Vikings' depth chart, ultimately becoming the top target in the passing game and posting four straight weeks of at least 85 yards. Unfortunately, that streak ended Week 8, and Diggs failed to eclipse even 70 yards and scored only twice during the team's last nine games. At 6-0, 195, Diggs has only average size and good speed (4.46 40). He's elusive in space, runs good routes and has strong ball skills. Despite his anemic production in the second half, Diggs heads into the season as the team's No. 1 wideout. Of course, the Vikings don't throw much (454 attempts, 32nd) and when they do they are not especially efficient (7.1 YPA, 20th.) And even though Mike Wallace is gone, Diggs could have competition from first-round pick Laquon Treadwell for targets.
A former five-star recruit, Diggs looked like a future day one or two draft pick during his freshman season at Maryland (54 catches for 848 yards and six touchdowns while scoring twice on kick returns in 11 games), but he never made much progress due to injuries and terrible quarterback play. The 2015 fifth-round draft pick has some upside as a result, but will likely be brought along slowly and may spend much of the season on the practice squad.
