2019 was a strange year for Diggs.
He reached 1,000 yards for the 2nd straight season, adding a respectable 6 scores. Yet only 5 of his 94 targets came in the red zone. He caught 1.
Diggs recorded TDs of 45, 62, 51 and 54 yards, helping his yards per catch settle at a career-high 17.9. He also finished 6th among WRs in fantasy points per target; 3rd in yards per target.
On a run-heavy offense — Kirk Cousins chucked it only 444 times — Diggs was wildly inconsistent. He fell shy of 10 PPR points 6 times. Three of his TDs came in 1 game (Week 6 vs. Philly).
Moving to another run-centric team, is Diggs bound for another rollercoaster season?
The Bills dealt a 1st-round pick for the 26-year-old, who’s under contract through the 2023 season.
We project him to lead the team in targets, albeit by a slim margin. John Brown was impressive last season (72-1,060-6) and has a built-in rapport with Josh Allen. Cole Beasley’s a fine slot receiver, but he’s not a guy who’ll command a big target share.
The real issue is that Buffalo doesn’t want to put games into Allen’s hands. Through 2 seasons, he’s completed 56.3% of his passes at 6.6 yards per attempt. His 2019 QBR ranked 24th among 30 qualifiers.
Sure, there’s still some untapped upside with the young passer. But we don’t expect a drastic shift in OC Brian Daboll’s approach. Across 6 career stops as an OC, his units have ranked outside the top-6 in rush attempts just once. Buffalo has the personnel to pound the rock after draf…
