How high is Vikings’ WR Stefon Diggs’ ceiling?
Wallace told The Minneapolis Star-Tribune that Diggs reminds him of Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, his former teammate.
The Vikings were a popular sleeper pick heading into the 2015 season, but Diggs has been the real sleeper.
Drafted in the fifth round out of Maryland, Diggs wasn’t activated until the Vikings’ Week 4 game at Denver when Charles Johnson sat out with a rib injury.
In two games, Diggs has caught 13 passes for 216 yards. He caught six for 87 yards in a 23-20 loss to the Broncos. Then with Johnson still out after the bye week Diggs led the Vikings with seven catches for 129 yards in a 16-10 home win over the Chiefs.
The jury is still out on the Vikings. They’ve won all their home games and lost both of their road games. Even though they have a winning record, they haven’t exactly turned heads so far this season.
But they’ll soon be getting some pats on the back for what’s turning out to be a fifth-round steal.
