You don't need me to tell you to start Diggs every week. That said, he's an even better play than usual in Week 6, as the Bills are playing in the game with the highest projected point total on the slate (57.5). They're underdogs, which is good, as Josh Allen will need to air the ball out to keep the Bills in competition. Diggs is a high-end WR1 this week, and he makes a smart play in full-slate DFS contests as well.

Sure, John Brown has been producing when he's on the field, but it's clear as day who the No. 1 go-to receiver is for Josh Allen. He's now totaled at least 86 yards in 4-of-5 games, including three of them with 100-plus yards. His 26.3 percent target share is more than you could've ever asked for. The matchup with the Chiefs is not a good one, despite contrary belief. The 48 receptions they've allowed ranks as the second-fewest in the NFL, while the 695 yards ranks as the sixth-fewest. Looking at fantasy points the Chiefs have allowed to running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, the wide receiver position has accounted for just 42.6 percent of the production, which ranks as the fifth-lowest percentage in the league. This is nothing new, as the Chiefs allowed the fewest yards in the league to receivers last year. It's unlikely we see multiple receivers produce, which is why it's so important that we know Diggs is the clear alpha. There have been just three receivers who've posted 100-plus yards against them in their last 21 games, though it is important to mention that two of them have been this year. Diggs should be started as a WR2 with his target share and importance in the offense, but it's not a smash spot.

The Chiefs are 3rd against fantasy wide receivers, but Diggs has been the sixth ranked fantasy wide receiver this year. He is emerging as a matchup proof WR1.
