Diggs and Thielen

Postby L’stone » Wed Jun 19, 2019 10:28 am

What’s the difference between the two? Is it just a few years of youth benefitting the side of Diggs. Or is one more talented than the other?

I can potentially swap Thielen for Diggs, with also handing over some spare change.

I would rather have Diggs. The age gap is a big factor here but I also think Diggs is just hitting his stride and has a higher ceiling than Thielen.

I dont agree that Diggs's cieling is higher than Thielen's, considering Thielen was a WR1 the last two years.. I think they are both very good, and really the only difference is age and the fact that Diggs cant play a full season.

Diggs's age is why his value is higher as he is 3.5 years younger and if he could actually play a full season he might be a top 15 overall player.

I'm skeptical that this "spare change" is really just that.
Can you outline a more specific deal for us?

Also - Be mindful of the change in offensive coordinator mid-season for the Vikes last year and the tremendous decrease in pass attempts that followed. Could have just been a flukish slate of games, or it could be a predictor of a diminished passing game this season for both guys.

It would be Dexter Williams, to the Diggs owner who also has Aaron Jones.

I drafted Dexter at 4.01 so he kind of has that general value within my league, even if I like his talent and situation a bit more than that.
