Latest dynasty outlook of Stefon Diggs
By: Jake Rajala
The Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs unveiled the Minneapolis Miracle in Minnesota and then blossomed in Buffalo. Here is a closer look at how potent Diggs has been in a Bills uniform:
2020: 166 targets, 127 receptions, 1,535 yds, and 8 touchdowns (All-Pro)
2021: 164 targets, 103 receptions, 1,225 yds, and 10 touchdowns
Davante Adams is the only WR with more targets than Diggs over the past two seasons. It’s safe to say that the Diggs + Josh Allen combination has been from another planet. Well, should dynasty owners of Diggs expect a bright, long-term outlook?
Diggs recently signed a four-year, $96 million dollar contract extension with the Bills in April. It appears that Brandon Beane wants Diggs to be a monster piece of their Super Bowl aspirations. I have no doubt in my mind that Diggs is a Top-5 targeted WR in 2022, but his fountain of youth could crack after 2022. Diggs is 28 (29 in late November) and it is sure isn’t easy for WRs over 30 to oust elite seasons.
Diggs is a rare breed and really has jets on his feet. I believe a fascinating comparison for Diggs is Reggie Wayne. The former Colts legend was able to have Pro Bowl seasons at age 30, 31, and able to his only All-Pro season at age 32.
Diggs may not be a Randy Moss or Jerry Rice, but I believe the utterly electric WR shouldn’t slow down in the near future. I love Gabriel Davis’s outlook, but Diggs is noticeably more reliable. The Bills offense moved on from Cole Beasley and Emmanual Sanders this off-season. I fully expect Josh Allen to keep the gas on the WR with the perfect skillset for him in Diggs, grow with Davis, and make plays with Jamison Crowder.
It would be wise to buy Diggs with his 26-year-old QB that has infinite arm strength in my opinion. I believe the combination of some less superb patches of his previous season and his age should make an owner push him out the door for a creative offer.
