All Greased Up: Stefon Diggs' Squeaky Wheel is Speeding After Slow Start

Bill Enright

After catching a total of just six passes in the first three games, Stefon Diggs has seven catches in each of his last two games.

Stefon Diggs is Back to Being Stefon Diggs

Fantasy Football managers were on the brink of giving up all hope with Stefon Diggs after the first three games of the season. Luckily he's turned his entire season around in a BIG BIG WAY.

Let's just take a look at Diggs' gamelog through the first seven games of the season. The increase in production compared to his snail-like slow start is astounding.

Stefon Diggs Game Log Weeks 1-7

In the individual games in Weeks 4, 6, and 7 Diggs exceeded his combined receptions from Weeks 1, 2, and 3 with seven catches in three of his last four games. During that same time frame, the Vikings receiver also has over 100 yards in three of those contests. Would we like to see him get in the end-zone more? Yes of course. But as Vikings Maven Will Ragatz told Jim Cramer, Diggs complaints about his lack of involvement have paid off. 

If you held onto Diggs after the first three weeks of the season, kudos for your patience. If you took advantage of the impatient fantasy manager in your league and trade for Diggs when he was at an all-time low, kudos to your for your market awareness. 

What do you think of Diggs and Kirk Cousins' connection now that both seem to be on the same page? Leave us a comment with your thoughts on the Minnesota playmaker.

I sure hope he is for real


He's probably a WR1 this week.
