Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Fresh off a 128-yard, two-touchdown outburst at Green Bay, Diggs gets a Bills defense that has relinquished three passing touchdowns in consecutive games. There's legitimate week-winning, WR1 upside.Cooks has responded surprisingly well to life without an all-time great quarterback. He's fourth in receiving yards (246) with a resounding 20.5 yards per catch. After playing all 72 snaps in Week 2, he looks like a steady top-25 wideout despite potentially lining up against Casey Hayward. The Rams gave him some slot work to escape Patrick Peterson last Sunday, so it's not a stay-away situation.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Diggs has been the big beneficiary of the Vikings decision to sign QB Kirk Cousins and he should be a WR1 again this week. The Chargers are just 21st against fantasy wide receivers in Yahoo.com leagues this year, without the pass rush of DE Joey Bosa, they are an average defense and Cooks is a WR2.
