Bernard and Hooper don't carry a lot of weight, so this comes down to Diggs vs. Cooks for me. I think I'd lean towards Diggs, but it's very close.

😂😂😂

Now that we've from the He Man Diggs Hater Club, I think I'm going to go with Cooks in this trade, and think Hopper tips the scale for me a bit.

I don't understand how anyone can pick Diggs here...

Cooks
53-550-3
84-1138-9
78-1173-8
65-1082-7

Diggs
52-720-4
84-903-3
64-849-8

Cooks has been significantly more productive and is the best WR on his team. Diggs is perpetually injured and the clear WR2 on his own team. Hell Cooks already has 3 seasons better than anything Diggs has ever done. Really an easy choice.

I don't know how he's "clearly" the WR2 on his team. Don't get me wrong, I'm on the cooks side, but what makes Diggs the clear number 2? One year of stats? When the Vikings needed a big play last year, they went to Diggs. Keenum trusted him enough for the Miracle play when Theilen was open. In preseason (yes, I know) Cousins looks like he trusts Diggs more, throwing him open rather than taking what is given (which if you didn't watch the Vikings last year, is how Theilen got the ball a lot.) Not knocking on Theilen, but he doesn't have game-breaking ability. And my last point is the contracts. They just paid Diggs a huge salary, 5 years, 72 million, 40 million guaranteed. That's more than Julio, and more than AB got last year. They clearly want to pay him as a top WR. Anyway, I believe diggs is the WR1 in Minnesota, and none of this is a knock on Theilen, they compliment each other extremely well.

Ok, I'm done ranting. Oh, and take Cooks, I have Cooks=Diggs, so Hooper puts it over the edge.

I love me some Cooks....always have. But the answer here is Diggs.

Anyone who watches the films of these two guys can see the difference and if they can’t they don’t know what to watch for. And Diggs has that my ball intensity of an OBJ and AB that makes him play bigger than his size. He’s an elite WR in every sense of the word and will show it if he can stay healthy. We’ve seen Cooks’ ceiling in a Brady/Brees led offense. We have yet to scratch Diggs’ ceiling in a Keenum/Bradford/Bridgewater led offense.

Let Cousins and Diggs hit the Player’s Club for about a month or two, put a tan on it, and then see what it do....

Last years stats.
Thielen 91-1277-4 on 143 targets.
Diggs 64-849-8 on 95 targets

One of those players in clearly the WR1 the other is the WR2. 48 extra targets don't just happen randomly. Sure Diggs will have some big plays. But he'll also miss 3-4 games a year. I love it when people fall in love with "potential" over actual production. "The guy who is always hurt will stay healthy this year I know it!!" "This is the year he'll finally break 1,000 yards and be worth his 2nd round ADP!!" It's crazy how some players are so overvalued compared to what they actually produce. Based on what Diggs has done on the field he should be valued similarly to Sammy Watkins. Someone who also got a decent payday this year...

I'd rather have the guy I know will give me 65-1100-8 every year over the guy who has never broken 1,000 yards in a season but has "potential".

I'm shocked people are calling Hooper a "throw-in".
Are you guys paying attention? Look at his jump from season one to season two.
49 catches last year - now a 3rd year TE. Has great rapport with his QB, the team is in the second season in its offense.
Ryan has proven he can sustain fantasy value for two WRs and a Te in the past.

Hooper is one of the sneakiest upside TEs in the league right now.
