Stefon Diggs connecting with Kirk Cousins in preseason opener

Stefon Diggs and Kirk Cousins appear to be on the same page already as they connected three times for 35 yards and a one-yard TD on the Vikings opening drive of the 42-28 win over the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

The highlight pass and catch was on a precise route, pass and catch for 28 yards to set up the one-yard score three plays later. Diggs has a new contract and a better QB pulling the trigger which could lead to a breakout season for Diggs who is looking for the first 1,000-yard season of his career. Diggs is the 13th WR off the board in PPR leagues according to our ADP consensus.

Stefon Diggs gets contract extension

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero is reporting that the Vikings have agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension with wide receiver Stefon Diggs.

Fantasy Impact

We all knew the Vikings wanted to retain Diggs, so the extension comes as no shock, though we don't have the dollar amount just yet. Diggs has been on the verge of a breakout for some time now, as he's totaled 148 receptions, 1,752 yards, and 11 touchdowns over the last two years despite missing five full games and portions of others. His talent combined with Kirk Cousins' arm could vault him into WR1 status this year, though it would take a decline in teammate Adam Thielen's target share. Diggs should be drafted as a WR2 in fantasy drafts who has serious WR1 potential, ahead of his teammate.

Stefon Diggs wants to remain a Viking after this season

Stefon Diggs, who is in the last year of his contract, stated that "I want to be here. I love being here.", when asked about his contract status and future.

Fantasy Impact

Diggs has produced 200 receptions for 2,472 yards and 15 TDs through his first three seasons in the league. At age 24, he could post career-high numbers in season four with Kirk Cousins under center for an explosive Vikings offense. With the recent money given to WRs such as Brandin Cooks, Diggs could be in line for a big payday at the end of this season. Diggs is currently the 14th WR coming off the board in PPR leagues according to ADP.

Stefon Diggs will let his play do his talking in contract year

Stefon Diggs stated during an interview on ProFootballTalk that he will let his contract "handle itself" as he enters the fourth and final year of his rookie contract.

Fantasy Impact

Diggs finished with 64 receptions for 849 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns last season. The 24-year-old WR could be in line for a career-year in 2018 with Kirk Cousins under center for the Vikings. Diggs will be looking for his first 1,000-yard season in his fourth year in the league as he looks for a big payday next offseason. This is just additional motivation for an already highly skilled and motivated player. Diggs is currently the 34th player off the board according to ADP which could be a steal for a motivated talent like Diggs.

Stefon Diggs with 70 yards receiving against the Eagles

Stefon Diggs caught eight of 12 targets for 70 yards against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Diggs didn't find the end zone for the first time in five games, but he was heavily involved once again. He had a bit of a roller-coaster season, excelling early before falling off in the middle, only to see his production jump again at the end. In the end, Diggs' owners were likely satisfied overall, but they'll be hoping for more next year in the final year of his contract.
