Stefon Diggs is not a top-40 NFL player according to PFF
By Adam Patrick
Former Minnesota Vikings and current Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs is currently not a top-40 NFL player according to some recent PFF rankings.
Stefon Diggs knew he was capable of bigger things during his time with the Minnesota Vikings. Never really treated as the true No. 1 receiver in Minnesota, Diggs got his first opportunity to be “the guy” last season as a member of the Buffalo Bills.
With the Bills in 2020, all the former Vikings wide receiver did was lead the NFL in catches and receiving yards while earning his first-career Pro Bowl and First-Team All-Pro selections.
Diggs got the opportunity he wanted last season and he took full advantage of it. Heading into the 2021 campaign, there is no question that he is regarded by many as one of the top receivers in the league.
Former Minnesota Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs not ranked favorably by PFF
Despite all of his success and achievements last season, not everyone is fully on board with Diggs being a top guy just yet.
Pro Football Focus recently released the first 10 members of their PFF50, their list of the top current players in the NFL, and even though they described Diggs as “one of the best and most complete receivers in the game,” the former Minnesota pass-catcher was only given the No. 45 spot on their list.
For a guy who just led the NFL in multiple receiving categories and earned a First-Team All-Pro selection, 45th seems like a significantly low ranking for Diggs.
How can PFF call him one of the best wide receivers in the NFL and then not list him as one of the 40 best players in the league? It just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
Well, we can just expect Diggs to use this as more fuel to continue to prove his doubters wrong next season.
