After posting the lowest yards-per-catch average of his career in 2018, Diggs set career-high marks of 1,130 yards and 17.9 yards per catch while averaging more than 75 receiving yards per game for the first time in his five NFL seasons. Acquired by the Bills in March in exchange for 2020 first-, fifth- and sixth-round picks and a '21 fourth-round pick, Diggs will be Buffalo's top receiving option.Having averaged at least nine targets per game in each of the past five seasons in which he has suited up, Edelman posted a career-high 1,117 receiving yards as a 33-year-old last season. With him now catching passes from a quarterback other than Tom Brady for the first time in his career, Edelman likely has the most productive seasons of his NFL career behind him.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Stefon Diggs had a 2019 that was totally out of character, gaining career-high yards on his lowest target share since his debut season. His efficiency went through the roof while he received under a third of his red zone targets. Now things get even more complicated with his move to the Buffalo Bills. Will he perform like John Brown in 2019 or will they poach each other's points? My greatest concern is his weekly floor in this run-first offence paired with a stingy defense. He'll have some big games and is a strong Best Ball target but I believe his overall ceiling is severely capped at WR2.Last year's PPR WR7 is available in the 8th round of drafts. HUH?! Edelman is one of the most consistent receivers around when he's healthy and while he now lacks Tom Brady, Jarrett Stidham would have been a great replacement given his proclivity for slot receivers. Sadly for Edelman lovers, Cam Newton has arrived and that will not only boost his ADP, it likely hurts his fantasy production. Newton won't use the 34-year-old receiver anywhere near as much, making Edelman a PPR certainty with less usefulness in non-PPR. Nevertheless, he's still a great sleeper if his ADP remains outside the first five rounds and I'd suggest he's a very solid starting option.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Going from Kirk Cousins to Josh Allen isn't going to be a highlight of Diggs' career, as Cousins has continually been one of the better deep-ball passers, while Allen was among the worst in 2019. Diggs actually led the league in yardage on passes that traveled over 20 yards in the air last year. The Bills are still a run-first team that has a top-tier defense, so it's hard to expect a big jump in pass attempts. They targeted their wide receivers 310 times last year, which was a lot for a team that threw the ball just 513 times. The 60.4 percent target share was the fourth-highest mark in the league. So, again, it's tough to say there will be more to go around. Knowing that John Brown was fantastic last year (115 targets), as was Cole Beasley (104 targets), it's tough to take targets away from them, but we have to start taking them from someone because you don't trade for someone like Diggs and not target him. Still, giving him even 115 targets might be too generous, as it'd completely crush the value of Brown, who already has experience with the quarterback/offense. Realistically, I have Diggs down for 111 targets in my projections. When tied to Allen's inconsistencies, that is a WR3 in fantasy who can get into WR2 territory at year's end, similarly to the way Brown did last year. Diggs is probably a top-eight wide receiver in the league, but you need to targets to move up the boards in fantasy football. I'd be happy landing him as my WR3, but that's about it.Did you realize Edelman has seen 793 targets over his last 83 games? That's a pace of 152.9 targets per season. But what happens when your whole world is flipped upside down? Losing Tom Brady is going to affect Edelman more than anyone, as those two had a connection and were continually on the same page. The Patriots also threw the ball 620 times last year, a number they won't even come close to in 2020. It's a different offense, yes, but did you know Cam Newton has never thrown more than 517 pass attempts in a single season? He's also failed to throw for more than 3,869 yards since his rookie year and has thrown more than 24 touchdowns just once. Meanwhile, Edelman has never averaged more than 7.9 yards per target. What does that mean? Even if he were to get 125 targets, his career-best wouldn't have totaled 1,000 yards. There's a lot of issues and question marks surrounding Edelman, and we haven't even discussed him turning 34 years old this offseason. He's likely to post low-upside WR3 numbers when on the field, but that's been a chore in itself, as he's played all 16 games just three times over his 11 years in the league. If you take the late-WR approach in drafts, it's not the worst thing to have Edelman as your WR3, but ideally, he's your WR4 with all the question marks and lack of upside.

Avoid a receiver changing teams, especially one projecting to lose work. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Stefon Diggs is now a member of the Buffalo Bills and in regards to fantasy, I don't love it. Josh Allen may have a strong arm, but it's not all that accurate. Expect to see a handful of huge games from Diggs along with some duds. I'd rather have him as a flex option than a weekly starter.With Tom Brady no longer at QB, the safe, reliable feeling of drafting Edelman has faded. Even with the addition of Cam Newton, it's hard to imagine Edelman being quite as consistent as he used to be. I see him as more of a flex option this year as opposed to his usual WR2-self.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Diggs didn't exactly land in the best offense for fantasy football purposes. This is a team that's built through the run game and solid defense, which doesn't lead to an insane amount of passing volume. Diggs should be the leader on this team from a targets perspective, but it may not lead to being anything more than a consistent WR2. John Brown and Cole Beasley are still going to remain involved and they'll effectively limit Diggs' overall ceiling.Edelman's chances of returning fantasy value certainly increased with the Cam Newton signing, but at this point of his career, he's nothing more than a low-end WR2/WR3.

 Love his target-hog role, but will that continue with the first-ever QB not named Brady?

Since 2009, only 26.0% of WRs to average 10+ PPG and then change teams have improved their PPG in the following season. Change the PPG threshold to 12 and that number drops to 20.9%. At 15 it's 0.0%. Last year Stefon Diggs avg 14.1 ppg @JackMiller02

The Vikings were 30th in pass attempts, which is a big reason why Diggs had only 68 receptions, 1,191 yards, and six touchdowns. He moves to another run-oriented offense, where he should be a mid-range WR2.

Had the lowest target count since his rookie year but the play action did wonders for his Yards per catch. 4 more yards per catch than his second best season. Team was 9th in play action attempts in 2019. Are the lack of targets a concern when Thielen only played 10 games though? Diggs sure thinks so. Led the league in yardage(635) from deep passes in 2019. Josh Allen - The most inaccurate starting QB on deep balls in 2019(30.9% accuracy). John Brown finished as WR15 last year..Limped into the off season with injuries. Constantly exceeds expectations. Such little target competition(sorry Sanu). I'll keep waiting for something to give out and end up most likely avoiding him. A solid 82nd in Y/R. Not that he's ever excelled there but that doesn't play when the targets run out.
