Perhaps the player of the game, Stefon Diggs continues to prove he is one of the better young receivers in the league. Diggs followed up his impressive week one performance with the best game of his young career, catching nine passes for 182 yards and a touchdown.
The most impressive thing about Diggs’ performance was his ability to establish rapport with Sam Bradford this quickly. With only two weeks of practicing together, the two were seemingly on the same page throughout the game. Diggs has quickly become Bradford’s favorite target, and the two should be able to put up some big numbers this season.
Diggs has everything you can want in a wide receiver. His route running is superb, and his hands are as sure as they come. My favorite thing about Diggs is his mentality, however, as he routinely shows a desire to come down with the pass, no matter what.
With Adrian Peterson possibly out for a few weeks, it will be even more important for Diggs and Bradford to be on the same page and continue the connection they have already shown.
