2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Diggs has proven to be everything you want in a WR2. He's scores touchdowns (17 over the past two seasons), flirts with WR1 weeks (four 100-yard games and four double digit reception games) and gets enough targets to avoid some truly horrific games.

After a solid 2017, Diggs had a career year in 2018, making sweet music with his new quarterback Kirk Cousins. Diggs reached 100 receptions and 1,000 yards for the first time in his career, and the 9 touchdowns also marked a career high. While I was a little surprised with the drop in yards-per-reception average (way too many lost yards on ill-executed bubble screens) Diggs was a difference maker last season. So how will he fare in what looks to be a less pass-centric offense? I see a bigger drop-off for Diggs than I do for Thielen. It's going to be near impossible to repeat the 149 targets he received last year (this was 37 more than his previous career high) with his role on the offense unchanged. And although he usually is able to play through them, Diggs gets nicked up a bit, missing 9 games over his 4-year career.

Even with a slight regression, I'd still be happy to take Diggs as a reliable WR2 that has a chance to be a week winner a few times throughout the year.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Adam Thielen misses practice Thursday
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Jan 9, 12:14 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) watching warmups today, doesn’t look like he’s practicing. Stefon Diggs (illness) is back for #Vikings. (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thielen suffered a cut on his ankle yesterday that required stitches. He's expected to play Saturday against the 49ers but monitor updated tomorrow and Saturday morning.


Injury Stefon Diggs misses practice Wednesday
Illness
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jan 8, 3:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Three #Vikings - Stefon Diggs (illness), Jayron Kearse (toe/knee) and Mackensie Alexander (knee) - unable to practice today. Adam Thielen limited with an ankle injury that popped up today. (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Head coach Mike Zimmer was optimistic that Diggs would be ready to play on Saturday against the 49ers. In all likelihood, Diggs will be in his normal role this week.


Injury Adam Thielen listed as Doubtful
Unlikely to play in Week 14
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 6, 4:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Adam Thielen is DOUBTFUL and Riley Reiff is QUESTIONABLE to play for #Vikings, team announces. (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thielin will likely be inactive on Sunday leaving Stefon Diggs the main option at wide receiver for Kirk Cousins. Diggs has disappointed in this role last week (4-25) but gets a decent matchup against the Lions who have given up the 10th most fantasy points to WRs.


Injury Adam Thielen eyeing Week 13 return?
Missed most of last five games with hamstring injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 28, 11:55 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Adam Thielen remains on track for possible Monday return. Has missed 4 of the past 5 games with a hamstring injury. The Vikings didn't practice Thursday but he was estimated as a limited participant. (Chris Tomasson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thielen reportedly suffered a "slight scare" with his injury earlier in the week, so it remains to be seen if he limited designation is a good thing or not. Considering he's already had one setback with a hamstring, owners would be wise to make prove he can make it through a full game without aggravating it before plugging him back into fantasy lineups. Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith figure to benefit the most from another absence.


Injury Adam Thielen ruled out for Week 11
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 15, 1:38 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings ruled out WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) for Week 11 against the Broncos. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This makes sense as the Vikings have a bye in Week 12 which should allow him enough time to get ready for Week 13. With Thielen out, Stefon Diggs should be the focal point of the passing game but he has a rough matchup against Broncos cornerback Chris Harris. Diggs is more of a WR2 than WR1 in Week 11.


Injury Adam Thielen misses practice Thursday
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 14, 12:24 pm

Minnesota Vikings
No Linval Joseph (knee), Adam Thielen (hamstring) or Josh Kline (concussion) at #Vikings practice today. DT Shamar Stephen returned. (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With the Vikings having a bye in Week 12 it's starting to feel like we may not see Thielen on the field until Week 13 against the Seahawks. If Thielen sits, Stefon Diggs is the only piece of the Vikings receiving corps that fantasy owners should feel comfortable with.


Injury Adam Thielen unlikely to play Week 10
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 5, 2:22 pm

Minnesota Vikings
#Vikings WR Adam Thielen’s strained hamstring is no worse after his brief appearance in KC, I'm told, but he’s unlikely to play Sunday against the #Cowboys. Could feel it pulling and need to calm it down. Note: Bye is 2 weeks away and team errs on the conservative side. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fantasy owners should plan to be without Thielen this week and possible more given the Vikings have a bye in Week 12. Stefon Diggs will continue to operate as the team's top wideout for the next couple weeks.


Injury Adam Thielen aggravates hamstring injury
Played only seven snaps in Week 9
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 4, 4:50 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer wouldn't speculate (Nov. 4) on when Adam Thielen will return from hamstring injury. "Whenever the doctor says he's ready to play, he's ready." (Chris Tomasson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thanks, coach. In all seriousness, this is another case in which fantasy owners appeared to get deceived, as we were generally led to believe Thielen was close to being ready to play on a short week in Week 8 and the team was just being cautious with him leading up to Week 9. At this point, owners probably should wait for him to make it through an entire game before inserting him back into lineups. Stefon Diggs will continue to operate as the clear WR1 in his absence.


Injury Adam Thielen out for Thursday Night Football
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 23, 2:13 pm

Minnesota Vikings
#Vikings are listing WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) as out for tomorrow night's game. (Adam Caplan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Vikings will rest their No.1 receiver on a short week leaving Stefon Diggs and Olabisi Johnson as the top wideouts with Laquon Treadwell expected to see more work. The Vikings may also use more two-tight end sets with Kyle Rudolph and rookie Irv Smith.
