Offensive MVP – Stefon Diggs, wide receiver
For the first time this season Dalvin Cook isn’t the offensive MVP. His day of struggling opened the door for another player to earn the honor. And even though Stefon Diggs didn’t have a flawless game, he earns the honors this week.
Diggs led the Minnesota Vikings in receptions and receiving yards, catching all seven of the targets thrown his direction for 108 yards, passing the century mark for the first time during the 2019 NFL season.
Diggs may have been Cousins’ best option in the passing game on Sunday, but he also had a fumble that was recovered by Chicago. Still, he was the brightest spot on a Vikings team that just couldn’t find a consistent offense.
So far this year, Diggs has been missing in action a bit, so it’s great to see him getting more involved in the passing game. Up until this point he only had six catches for 101 yards and one touchdown in three games, and that’s not what fans know he is capable of.
