The WR1 through Week 4, Diggs stumbled upon returning from a groin injury suffered the following game. He then found pay dirt in each of the final three contests before catching 14 of 22 targets for 207 yards and an unforgettable TD in a pair of postseason bouts. Last year's leader in WR rating (145.2) and contested-catch rate (64 %), Diggs possesses an uncapped ceiling for those willing to take an early risk.In his first action since 2014, Gordon exceeded reasonable expectations by registering 335 yards in five games. He also secured just 18 of 43 targets for 335 yards, and the Browns have since acquired target-guzzler Jarvis Landry. Citing his "health and treatment plan," he was late reporting to camp. The range of outcomes is too cavernous to comfortably draft Gordon as a top-20 wideout.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Diggs has had struggles staying on the field, but when he is healthy, we are talking about a top 12 wide receiver. Everyone is all over Thielen, and for good reason, but it was Diggs who was the stronger fantasy player in points per game last season. Don't hesitate to add him ahead of more reliable names like Fitzgerald and Demaryius on draft day.Gordon was fairly impressive last season for having hardly played football in the last several years. With that said, the Browns brought in Jarvis Landry and Carlos Hyde who should both cut into his opportunities. The ceiling is clearly huge, but the floor ought to scare you quite a bit as well, especially since we don't know if he will keep things clean off-the-field.

I've moved Diggs ahead of Adam Thielen as Minnesota's WR1. Much better shot at exceeding 8-plus TDs.  
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Has all the tools to be special, with the exception of durability. Working with his best QB yet (Cousins), sustained health could easily carry Diggs into WR1 territoryBack with CLE after head-clearing hiatus, and is expected to be cleared to resume team activities soon. With Jarvis Landry in the mix, he won't command the massive target share that he did in '17. But Gordon's immense physical upside still makes him an easy dice roll as a back-end top 20 wideout

Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The addition of Kirk Cousins has everyone excited, though the one who should be most excited is Diggs, who might see more targets float his way. After playing with Case Keenum, who was more of a game manager, Diggs should be more of a field stretcher for Cousins, as he can create separation at every level of the field. Meanwhile, Adam Thielen had a boost in production under Pat Shurmur, who is now gone. As of now, Thielen is going earlier than Diggs in drafts, but it really should be the other way around. Take the discount on Diggs and pass on Thielen, you'll be happy you did. It didn't seem like Gordon missed a beat upon his return last year, though the quarterback play was less than ideal. 39 percent of his targets were over 20 yards, though just 5-of-16 were catchable. It goes to show that the Browns want to use him down the field, though there's bound to be some changes with Todd Haley taking over as coordinator. The reason I'm down on Gordon, though, is that they brought in Tyrod Taylor, Carlos Hyde, Nick Chubb, and Jarvis Landry this offseason. That screams, "we want to run a ball-control style offense." There's only so many targets to go around, so by drafting Gordon as a top-24 receiver, you're essentially saying that Landry is likely to cap out around 100 targets. On top of the target risk, Gordon is now away from the team for training camp, which cannot bode well for him learning the new offense and developing chemistry with his new quarterbacks. A rumor is that Gordon wanted to keep away from the Hard Knocks cameras. If that's the case, Gordon's fall in drafts could turn out to be beneficial.

Antonio Brown 1st 3 yrs: 249 tar, 151 rec, 2062yds, 7TDs Stefon Diggs: 291 tar, 200 rec, 2472yds, 15TDs Few WRs profile to take an AB path, Diggs is one of those WRs @ClutchFantasy There are very few WRs in the league who have the intricacies of the game down like Stefon Diggs. He's one of the most savvy route runners in the game. Short range quickness, football IQ (so underrated), footwork, angles, ball skills. @DanielHouseNFL He is a solid WR1 unless he is on the injury report, if he is questionable at any point during the week you can leave him on your bench. He seems to be on the injury report 4-5 weeks every season. Stefon Diggs ranked No. 1 vs man coverage in @MattHarmon_BYB's Reception Perception & No. 1 in @pff's Contested-Catch Efficiency. Diggs now entering his contract year at age 24. @EvanSilva Over the last two years, Stefon Diggs has spent 21 games off #Vikings injury report & 6 games on the report/limited by injury. When Diggs is off the injury report, he's averaged 17.0 PPR FPG (WR5 in this span). That trails only AB (21.3), OBJ (18.5), Allen (17.1), Julio (17.1). @GrahamBarfield

Diggs is one of the best receivers in the league and is playing for a contract this season. With all things equal, Adam Thielen should see more targets, but with a new quarterback in town, there's a chance Diggs can even those target numbers up.Gordon returned with five games left in the season to a winless team with a turnover machine at quarterback and still was able to put up decent numbers after an extremely long layoff. The Browns signed Tyrod Taylor, who should be an upgrade, but a full offseason and preseason with the team should be great for Gordon as he prepares for the 2018 season. UPDATE: Gordon missed the start of training camp, and there is some reason to worry about his status for this season. Until we know solid facts, Gordon should be avoided as a high draft pick.
Staff Rankings
QB List
The 24-year-old Diggs comes into 2018 as one of the better pure athletes in the NFL, even if he doesn't have a nickname involving the word "lightning". Diggs has always shown game-breaking speed, good route running, and great hands, using these attributes to have arguably his best pro season last year posting almost 850 yard and eight touchdowns for the Vikings. As Kirk Cousins enters 2018 as the new Vikings franchise QB, how the targets will shake out for the Minnesota offense remains to be seen. If Diggs were to somehow gain a true WR1 target share, he could potentially be a top five wide receiver; however, as long as he and Thielen continue to both get fed, the most likely scenario in this case, those big dog games of his will be few and far between, leaving him to compete instead for a spot within the top 15. Our next two receivers require little analysis. Gordon falls slightly above Landry at #29 purely based on upside. Having Gordon on the field is like having the Madden-made player from when you were 8 years old out there for you. He's borderline unstoppable…except for when his QB is hot garbage. Luckily, he gets the ever-dependable, yet nothing exciting, Tyrod Taylor this year. While Taylor isn't typically a downfield passer, Gordon should be utilized generously enough to garner top 30 upside, and with emphasis on his insane skill-set, possibly even top 20 upside.

Diggs may be targeted more by Cousins as the superior talentGordon has scary upside regardless of whether its Taylor or Mayfield under center but needs to find a way to avoid off field issues
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Diggs feels pretty undervalued when compared to Thielen. He might be one of the best route-runners in the NFL and could rise up a bit this yearHe can be a freak but he's still on the Browns and you need to pay a hefty price for a guy that is pretty impossible to trust
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Diggs was a very good touchdown threat at the end of the season and he has WR1 value playing with QB Kirk Cousins.Gordon averaged 7.9 fantasy points per game last year in five games and if he dedicates himself to the off-season programs, he could emerge as a WR2 candidate in 2018.
