Fantasy Impact:

Allen even talked about the rumors swirling that Diggs’ arrival would hurt Brown and Beasley’s value. He thought the exact opposite, saying, “I think it’s the other way around. John was a 1,000-yard receiver last year. Man-to-man, he’s extremely tough to cover. Cole, on the inside, if you put a nickel on him, he’s a tough cover in man-to-man.” It’s tough to see Brown and Beasley seeing more targets than they saw a season ago especially with the arrival of Diggs. What Allen could be saying is that the two veteran receivers could have more single coverage by the opposing teams 2nd or 3rd corner as opposed to their top corner. Diggs likely attracts each team’s best corner, which could lead to more catchable balls and easy opportunities for Brown. Don’t sleep on Brown this season at his current ADP of WR37. On the other hand, Diggs’ ADP is currently WR22, and it could be tough for him to hit that value as he joins a new team and tries to build chemistry quickly with his new quarterback.
