Stefon Diggs – WR (Buffalo Bills)

Week 1 Stats:

  • 8 catches (9 targets)
  • 86 yards
  • 0 touchdowns

After an impressive five seasons with the Vikings, Stefon Diggs began the next part of his NFL career as a member of the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

During the Bills’ Week 1 win over the New York Jets, Diggs pretty much picked up where he left off in Minnesota. The former Vikings receiver hauled in all but one of his targets from new quarterback Josh Allen and it seems like the Buffalo passer has already developed a knack for looking in Diggs’ direction quite frequently.

One thing that was missing from Diggs’ performance on Sunday was his ability to generate additional yards after making the catch. The Bills new receiver only averaged 1.3 yards after the catch against the Jets compared to the 4.4 yards after the catch he averaged in each of his two previous years with Minnesota.

Obviously, it’s only one game and Diggs has plenty of time to improve that number. Other than a trip to the end zone though, his debut in a Buffalo uniform couldn’t have gone much better.
