There hasn’t been a wide receiver that has gotten as much attention in the off-season as Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Diggs’ tenure with the organization appears to be tenuous at best. Diggs frequently complained throughout the 2019 season about the lack of targets sent his way in the Vikings run heavy offense. Adding to that are his vague tweets from his Twitter account and the removal of everything Viking from his Instagram account. This has Vikings fans everywhere concerned.

Despite how Diggs may feel, he enters the season as a member of the Minnesota Vikings, and that is unlikely to change. He finished 2019 with 63 catches, a career-high 1,130 yards, six touchdowns, and 17.94 yards per reception. That was good for 56th in fantasy points among all players (212.1) and he finished as the WR20.

It is understandable that some are down on the 5 year veteran–after all, he finished the 2018 season as WR12, with 102 receptions, 1021 yards and 9 touchdowns. Adding to the mystery that is Stefon Diggs is the fact that Minnesota yet again will have a new offensive coordinator in 2020. Gary Kubiak will be the 5th different OC of Diggs’ 6 year career.

Diggs is under contract in Minnesota through 2023, and he’s only 26 years old in the prime of his career.

He is an elite route runner, and it’s the main reason the former 5th round selection has had the career he has. He is team and quarterback proof. If by chance he leaves Minnesota, he will retain his value. And if he stays as expected, he will retain it as well. Diggs has a top 12 ceiling and top 24 floor in 2020 and for years to come.

Value

Depending on your view, Diggs is either one of the most underrated receivers in the NFL or one of the most overrated. I believe that Diggs is one of the more underrated. His raw numbers act as a disservice to the kind of quality he offers as a receiver. Adam Thielen may have put up better numbers in the last few years and is a damn good player himself, but Diggs is the true number one receiver.

Diggs is currently coming off the board 37th overall and as the WR18 in March 2020 WR Startup Dynasty ADP on DLF. Start of the 3rd round is great value, as he currently sits behind Julio Jones, Cooper Kupp, and CeeDee Lamb. I am thrilled to grab a RB in round 2 if I can scoop up a WR like Diggs in the third.
