Diggs' down days this season have come against Tre'Davious White and Patrick Peterson, so he's still a top-shelf option despite falling comfortably behind teammate Adam Thielen. He should have a better outing against a banged-up Jets secondary that has ceded four 100-yard receivers this season. Only the Eagles have allowed more receptions to wideouts (96) than Gang Green (95), so this is a week where Thielen and Diggs can both deliver WR1 value.

WR Adam Thielen has been the featured weapon in their offense, but Diggs has had a good season too and he should thrive against the Jets secondary.

Diggs should lead Minnesota in touchdowns and yardage as he and new signal-caller Kirk Cousins flashed tremendous chemistry throughout the summer. That connection has carried over into the regular season and Diggs is now entering weekly WR1 status, even if he is well behind Adam Thielen on the target heirearchy.

Top 20 WR in half-PPR FAN PPG despite playing 2nd fiddle in MIN pass game - has been dud-prone (Week 5 was 11th time in past 33 reg-season games he's posted 40 rec. yards or less, 0 TD)
