The excitement over Diggs' fantasy value came crashing down last week, as he caught just two of six targets for 27 yards with Case Keenum throwing him the ball. There's optimism that Sam Bradford will return this week, which will certainly boost Diggs' value, though he draws a fairly tough matchup with Bent Grimes. Even if Keenum plays, fantasy owners can expect him to improve on his abysmal Week 2 performance against a tough Steelers defense, as the Vikings return home to play in front of a friendly crowd. Diggs makes a reliable WR3 if Bradford starts, and a risky one if he does not.

Diggs has a chance for a big game at home against a questionable Buccaneers secondary, but he will need QB Sam Bradford to be healthy and effective.

Savvy route runner w/ great football instincts & ability to gain YAC - but value takes a big hit if QB Bradford is out (see 2/27 line in W2)

Many analysts believe in his talent, but he's too erratic for me in anything other than best-ball.

Diggs clearly has a ton of talent at the potential to break out as a WR2, but lets not forget that Diggs finished behind Adam Thielen in receiving yards last season. Diggs was only startable in four games all of last season so just know that you are drafting a risky play with considerable upside.
