3 road games, 2 pts 0 pts and 2 pts. Play Thielen

 

Diggs owner here....I agree...I think Diggs may be one of the top three most overrated players in the league. People who dub him a "stud" see something I don't. "Studs" don't have the floor he has and most are basically matchup-proof. Diggs is a 2-30pt type of player in any given week. I'll probably play Darkwa over him this week...gotta see something from him before I can trust him. Names don't win championships....production does.

Tough player to gauge. Only Hilton is more boom or bust than this cat. Route running is elite, but injury bug worrisome. Maybe he can string together some good statlines with Teddy down the stretch, which would set him up as legit WR1 candidate in 2018. This year screams smoke and mirrors to me.

By the way- he's returning home this week. He's from the area.

 

You know he wants to put on a show. I said this about the London game, obviously didn't work out but it was a first game back and Cleveland is a joke.

I have no choice to play him but I’m not convinced Casey Keenum is more concerned with giving him a chance to get the ball than throwing an interception.  That is why so many of these QBs today are dumping off to some RB.  No one wants to throw an Int.

I'm not sure what changed from the earlier games when he exploded against the bucs, and put up 5 for 98 against the Lions. Keenum has proved successful with him. I think they will get back to what was working. The Browns were a breeze and McKinnon was averaging like 13 yards per catch. They'll have to stay competitive in this Washington game due to the fact that Washington is seriously underrated.

I hate to say this, but I agree with you, and it pains me to say this. I drafted him wanting to believe too! Sigh. To think I traded Thielen instead of him.

Lol overrated

 

Give him a QB that isn't so up and down and he would be top 15+. Keenum is good one week and then can suck balls at a moments notice the next - which directly affects his WR. Look at how bad AB was when Big Ben got injured. The reality is that the Vikings QB situation is among the worst in the league. Don't put that on Diggs. 

 

Hopefully Teddy can restore some balance to the offense.

He seems good to me. Going against him this week, hoping Norman shadows him? Is Norman even healthy?

Too many haters in this thread for no reason. 

 

Trust me Oli, I don’t want to hate....I own him.  But like a brother said, his resume does seem to have two words written all over it- inconsistent and Injured.

Well,  I suppose we could cast some trivia over any team / player situation.  

Remember, we shouldn't care about what a player is "capable" of...we care about what they actually do...right?

Legit studs aren't injured often, they create separation in coverage which makes them the first read regardless of whose throwing the ball. Case has thrown for some yardage but it's been split with Thielen probably because he's every bit as good as Diggs.

Since we're talking hypotheticals...what if he had had just one more average game against TB...would you even roster him right now?

All WRs have a floor thats very low. That's how the position works. Saying studs don't have the floor he has is just flat out wrong.

I remember a game which Julio Jones played  and the Falco put up an insane number like  50pts as a team and Julio had a floor of ZERO :lol:

Is Norman still alive? Pretty sure Baldwin murdered him last week.

Norman was on multiple players. But Baldwin did make Norman miss at the line and was able to get away for a 30 YD TD.

He didnt make him miss, Baldwin completely took Norman out of the play with a perfectly executed rip :lol:

Limited today with a "tooth" injury. Either a ball hit him in the face or he hasn't been flossing enough. 

So everyone says sit him if he’s on the injury report.

I had to look myself - this is real life?

First time I've ever seen a status update for a "tooth" injury. Football isn't football unless Diggs makes the injury report every week.
