Diggs caught all five of his targets for 121 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-23 win over Denver.
Diggs had his lone target of the first half called back for a penalty, so he was a blank slate heading into the second half. The Vikings did well to get him into rhythm early and, though fans might have questioned why Diggs was being given such generous cushions, he showed why midway through the fourth quarter when he burned the secondary on a double move for a 54-yard touchdown. Diggs has five touchdowns this season, but has scored them all in three games -- leaving himself scoreless in eight other contests. While that may be frustrating to fans, he has topped 100 yards in three of those eight contests and figures to continue to be fed the ball so long as Adam Thielen (hamstring) is out of the lineup. Next up, after the bye, is Seattle's 27th-ranked pass defense.
Diggs had three catches (six targets) for 49 yards in Sunday's 28-24 win over the Cowboys.
The Vikings featured a run-heavy gameplan against the Cowboys' tough pass D, which led to low usage for Diggs and the receiving options not named Dalvin Cook. The 25-year-old has really struggled over his last two contests (four catches for 53 yards combined), so the absence of Adam Thielen (hamstring) is likely leading to more attention being paid to the side of the field Diggs lines up on. The Vikings may stick to a run-first scheme next week against a Broncos defense that has been far more susceptible to opposing rushing attacks, so it could be another low-usage outing for Diggs, especially if Thielen is unable to return to action.
Diggs brought in just one of four targets for four yards in the Vikings' 26-23 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
Even with teammate Adam Thielen exiting the game in the first half after reinjuring his hamstring, Diggs was a complete non-factor in the contest. The speedy wideout was well contained by the Chiefs secondary all afternoon, and his receptions and receiving yardage were both season lows. Diggs had come into the contest with a three-game streak of 100-yard performances, so fantasy managers should expect a resurgence to some degree Week 10 versus the Cowboys.
