Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Diggs absolutely won people fantasy championships in 2020. After being drafted around the WR20 off the board last season, Diggs exploded and ended the season as the overall WR3. His connection with Allen was on full display right out of the gate and it could even get better after a full off-season working together this year too. With Diggs' route-running acumen, plus the skillset that Allen brings to the table, NFL defenses are going to have to dedicate multiple defenders to slowing down the talented wideout. With the plethora of other receiving options Buffalo has, that's going to be near impossible. You're going to have to pay up for Diggs in your fantasy drafts this season, but it seems like one of the safest bets you can make.Cooks has been the definition of productive over the course of his career. However, if Watson does not play in 2021, Cooks becomes a must-avoid option for me. This Texans team is essentially going to be guaranteed the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft at the start of Week 1 and the scoring opportunities for this offense are not exactly going to be abundant. Cooks might give you a safe floor each week, but there's virtually no upside to drafting the veteran receiver. Around his ADP, there are some other options that I'd prefer pulling the trigger on that have more upside.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
How in the world do you go from one team to another, with no offseason to build chemistry, and then churn out 127 receptions for 1,535 yards and eight touchdowns? Diggs did that because he's uber talented, and he finally got the targets he deserves. The Vikings gave him 112 targets or less in four of the five seasons with them, hiding his true ceiling. He's now tied to Josh Allen, who's continually improved since coming into the league, on a pass-first offense where he's the featured star. There's no reason to think they don't pick up where they left off in 2020. Heck, even his three games in the playoffs against legit opponents netted 20 receptions for 311 yards and two touchdowns.Over the last six years, there have been just seven wide receivers who've finished top-24 in at least five of them. Those receivers are Mike Evans, Julio Jones, Davante Adams, DeAndre Hopkins, Amari Cooper, Jarvis Landry, and... Cooks. He's done it with four different quarterbacks, too. However, 2021 might be his toughest test yet, as it appears Tyrod Taylor will be his quarterback, and this is projected to be the lowest scoring offense in the league. Still, he's the clear-cut top option on this team and should be a lock to see 100-plus targets as long as he's healthy.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Diggs had an incredible first season with Buffalo, leading the NFL in targets with 166, catches with 127, and receiving yards with 1,535. He was also second behind only Davante Adams in receptions per game. We've been waiting for years to see what an elite route runner like Diggs could do in an explosive offense with a strong-armed quarterback, and the answer was pretty definitive: he'd become one of, if not the single, best receiver in the game. There's no reason to let Diggs slip any further than the third wide receiver off the board in your fantasy draft in any format. 
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Stefon Diggs was once called a poor man's Antonio Brown. If thats the case, the Bills and Josh Allen hit the lottery when Diggs posted a WR3 overall finish in 2020. Nothing has changed for the Bills and there's no reason not to expect QB Josh Allen to keep improving this year like he has done every season in the past. 
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
Diggs had a career year. Those are hard to repeat. Even with that he still only had 8 TDs. He's only 6'0" so he's not exactly a huge red zone threat. And TDs is what separates the good fantasy WRs from the great ones. I think he takes a step back this year. His 2nd round ADP is too rich for my blood. Can you Digg it?Cooks quietly had a solid year despite all of the turmoil in Houston. Deshaun Watson's pending departure hurts this offense and his numbers. Tyrod Taylor comes in to man the ship for at least a little while. The game script will force the Texans to pass in the 4th Qtr, opening up plenty of garbage catches and yards. Cooks can pad his stats and, in the process, get owners sneaky fantasy points.
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
 Brandin Cooks has quietly had a very strong NFL career. The 2021 outlook is very fuzzy with chaos falling upon the Texans. If Deshaun Watson plays QB, Cooks could be a serviceable WR3. With Tyrod Taylor at QB, Cooks is a WR4 at best and that seems the more likely scenario. If he drops in drafts considerably he may be a sneaky good addition to a roster. However, it's going to be a long, difficult season in Houston.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
 Consistently undervalued, but tough to take a plunge on with so much QB uncertainty right now
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Diggs had 265.1 fantasy points in 16 games and was the most targeted wide receiver in the league with 166 targets. He is as safe as any fantasy player in the NFL.
