Traded him. Drama higher than the production for me.
What's the Diggs Drama?
Walking away from the team, getting fined a few hundred thousand dollars. Then the whole press conference after the game where he sounded rather sarcastic about how everything was good, and then winked at the reporters and laughed. This is Diggs the first year into a contract with any substantial money. He's already acting like a diva a quarter of the season in.
I want to see how he reacts after they face another good defense and not one of the worst defenses in the league and the team likely goes back to square one in terms of passing attack (being none)

While I do not own any Stefon Diggs shares - it must have been nice for his owners to see him have a monster game. And after 100 yards in his first 3 games (combined) he has had 319 yards in the next 3 games & is now top 20 in Receiving yardage.

Yes, despite the fact that probably 95% of Diggs owners had him on the bench (me included), it was very nice to see. And I say that as an Eagles fan lol. :doh:

Hopefully he (and the Vikings passing offense along with it) can string together a few good games in a row, but I'm not holding my breath on that just yet.

I’d be surprised if 95% of owners had him benched. Not everyone is in a 10 team that only starts 7.

Lol fair enough. It was an exaggeration anyway.

I suppose there are still plenty of mediocre-to-bad teams out there that had no choice but to start him. 8-)

I started Diggs. :)

But my other WRs were Lockett who was fine with 13.5 points, and Cooper + Juju who put up a combined 3 points. Lost the week by 6.5 points. :(

You suggest only mediocre, to bad team started him. Have you ever played in a 16 team league that requires ten starters? 10 Team league that starts seven is not in the same galaxy. I know it was an exaggeration, but in most formats Diggs was a 2nd round startup pick this off season. 3rd at worst.

As a Eagles fan, you should have known he was a pretty obvious start in that game. Eagles secondary has been trash and their run D is top notch. I started him in a 10 team league with a solid WR group for the first time in about 3 weeks.

I have 0 shares of Diggs and have never really been a fan - however I am quite happy for the Diggs owners who followed the advice of those that preached patience because he is now a low end WR1 again in ppr it seems. That could drop to a high end WR2 once bye weeks are all evened up - but the fact remains that he is back in the conversation.

One of the toughest things for many owners - is to practice being patient, and Diggs certainly gave owners an opportunity to practice that

After Week III
WR 66 in PPR
6-101-1 = 22.1 points

Weeks IV-VII
WR 3 in PPR (excluding MNF)
24-461-3 = 89.90

Overall (excluding MNF)
WR 10 in PPR
30-562-4 = 112

Diggs just seems like more of a bestball superstar than traditional fantasy top WR. In non-bestball leagues I would not want him has my #1 WR, I would be alright with him as my #2, and would be ecstatic with him as my #3. He's just going to be very up and down with big weeks and no shows and that gets very frustrating when you are looking for someone you can rely on for at least 10-12 points every week.

I will keep this in mind for next season when I do my Bestball redrafts. :thumbup:
