There are just two wide receivers who've seen at least six targets in every game they've played this year. Diggs and Terry McLaurin. In fact, Diggs hasn't seen fewer than eight targets since way back in Week 4. Through 10 games, he ranks as the No. 2 wide receiver in yards, just six yards behind DeAndre Hopkins. The Chargers opponents have chosen to target wide receivers just 51.9 percent of the time, which ranks as the second-lowest number in the league. That's led to them scoring just 44.7 percent of the points the Chargers allowed to skill-position players, which is the lowest percentage in the NFL. If you make a catch against the Chargers, it'd better be for a lot of yards, as they're allowing just 11.1 wide receiver receptions per game, the lowest mark in the NFL. The 13.83 yards per reception they've allowed (5th-most) helps even things out, but there's a reason they've allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points to receivers. The combination of Casey Hayward and Michael Davis have been pretty good, allowing 61-of-110 passing for 898 yards, though six of those receptions have gone for touchdowns. The Chargers have allowed Hayward to shadow some receivers, which isn't a bad thing for Diggs, as he's allowed five of those six touchdowns, and they've all come over the last seven games. He doesn't allow a whole lot of receptions, but he is susceptible to the big play, allowing at least one 20-plus yard catch in each of his last four games. Diggs can win one-on-one with any cornerback in the league, so given his massive target share, keep him in lineups as a low-end WR1.

Stefon Diggs held to 39 yards in Week 12 win

Stefon Diggs caught 7-of-9 targets for 39 yards in the Bills' 27-17 Week 12 win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Josh Allen was under a lot of pressure in this one, which led to Diggs running his routes a lot closer to the line of scrimmage than usual. The 39 receiving yards are a new season-low for Diggs, and he now has just four touchdowns in 11 games. Still, his usage is that of a no-brainer WR1. Diggs will continue to function as a high-floor, high-ceiling fantasy asset in Week 13 against the Niners.
