Again, I’ll step back my statement he’s currently elite. I get that argument against that. I do think he has elite traits and the potential to take his game to that tier though. Subjective belief incoming, but maybe we’ll find out this year due to the trade, I think coaches would say “oh sht” when looking at Diggs on film and that’s what resulted to Thielan putting up top 10 numbers in 2017 and 18. No way to really prove it till this upcoming season.Never Veto wrote: ↑Tue Mar 17, 2020 9:11 amHe's not Elite. Julio is Elite, Thomas is Elite, Antonio Brown when he played was Elite. On a FF basis if you have to play against one of those guys, you're saying oh $h!t. No one is saying that about Diggs. Sure great route runner, but it doesn't matter if your not on the field due to injury, or your great route running is compromised because your always injured. Also a terrible situation would be Mitch Trubisky throwing you the ball.dustyroads wrote: ↑Tue Mar 17, 2020 8:22 amLastly, not to you specifically FF, but anyone who doesn't see Diggs as an elite WR in the NFL isn't watching the game. He's without a doubt one of the leagues best route runners. Say what you want about his "drama" or being a "cancer" (which I think are grossly overblown and half the time seem to be coming from Vikings fans), but I don't see how his talent can be debated. He's been routinely one of the highest graded WRs year after year despite being in a terrible situation.
I do think the injury thing is another overstatement though. He’s missed 3 games the past 3 seasons due to injury. I think that’s pretty solid. Yeah I see him on the injury report a lot of weeks, but I’d prefer a receiver who at least plays through those injuries. And if he’s still putting up WR2 numbers despite that, I don’t really see how it can be posed as an argument against him.
