Diggs is officially Keenan Allen 2.0, just wait for it and miss out on the gravy train!!
So he is going to injury his kidney this season and tear his ACL in 2019? :surprised:

What are you guys doing with Diggs?

Postby Fezzik » Mon Sep 23, 2019 8:58 am

Ok here's my Diggs situation.

So I have Diggs in a PPR. Team 3 in signature - strong contender (3rd in points through 3 weeks and only 22 less than first place). Kinda short rosters at 20 players, no taxi and no IR, so it makes holding guys that you can't play kind of tough.

As far as Diggs, love the player. He's a fantastic route runner (maybe the best in the league), gains separation like a boss, excellent at the catch point (actually read somewhere he's the best contested ball receiver in the league, but can't find the source on that). Just kind of fun to watch too. Dude's got some negatives about him too; gets nicked up a lot and doesn't play well hurt. But the main thing is that he's on an offense that just doesn't want to throw the ball at all, and they have an equally good or better receiver in Thielen on the other side. I really just kind of don't know what to do with the guy. I mean, I guess hold him is the obvious answer, but I'd prefer to have a startable asset. He's tied to the Vikings for a few more years though, and is an excellent real life football asset to have.

In PPR through 3 games, he's averaging 2 - 33 and .33td. Now it's only three games and I think this trends up a little bit, but this is kind of what I see the Vikings wanting to be, an old school running offense.

I guess I'm asking the Diggs owners out there, what are you guys doing with Diggs?

That offense appears to be making both Thielen and Diggs purely TD dependent as of today.

To make matters worse, they're winning with this "Establish the Cook" offense which obviously reinforces the style of play. It's almost as if you'd need Dalvin to go down for Minny to potentially go back to what they were last year.

As a Diggs owner myself, I dunno. The only solace is, it's happening to Thielen too.

You have to hold. The O is going to even out - opposition will start stacking the box and forcing Cousins to beat them (and who knows if he will). Either way, opportunity is going to come for Diggs and with him it isn't a matter of if he is skilled or not, it is about opportunity.

If you don't want to ride him out you can try to sell, but I doubt you are going to get WR10-15 value out of him (which is probably where he belongs).

I’m flicking off his name each time I look at roster and weekly score updates...can’t sell, not many are gonna pay what he’s “worth” because it’s been an ugly start for MINN passing game. It has to improve, it has to

It's not Diggs fault, it's the offense. I think we can all agree on that. If he was on the Patriots he'd be a top 15 guy.

Cooks is running so well there's no reason to be pass happy. PLUS, Cousins isn't exactly that great. He's looking more like a game-manager these days than he is a great qb.

He's a strong hold, and a bye-week fill-in at best for the time being.

Parking him on the bench and praying for a trade.

It's my Corey Davis approach too.
Dynasty player since 2002.
I probably should have done something more productive with that time...

Piling on. You have to hold. He's too good and his struggles are 100% because of Minnesota deciding to take the ball away from Cousins. It's unfortunate, but it's working for them.

I totally agree with everyone in that you've gotta hold, not gonna get value now. The only thing I don't agree with is that this is gonna even out in Minnesota. This is what they want to be! It just kinda sucks. He's so good and he's completely unusable b/c of situation only. I guess I'm whining now. Has anyone gotten any representative value trading him away to a rebuilder perhaps?

I do not own any Diggs shares, and I do not plan to try to buy low either. Do not blame anyone who tries to - just make sure it is a buy low not high.

I'm not sure what is wrong with Cousins, but he never used to be this bad. He wasn't great in the latter half of last season, but he seems to be getting progressively worse rather than better. Makes you miss the Case Keenum days.

Holding Diggs on my bench for the time being. I'm not sure how much better things get when Cooks gets hurt, but it can't be any worse.
