Stefon Diggs, wide receiver – Buffalo Bills

Fans of the Minnesota Vikings knew just how talented Stefon Diggs is from watching him play for five seasons. It will take a long time to forget about the catch he made that was dubbed the Minneapolis Miracle.

Diggs played 70 games with the Vikings, starting 63, where he accumulated 4,623 yards and 30 touchdowns. He was traded to the Buffalo Bills after the 2019 season after expressing a desire for more opportunities.

The move to Buffalo has been amazing for his statistics. In three seasons, his lowest yardage output was 1,225 yards but he coupled that with ten touchdowns in 2021, good for 72.1 yards per game.

2022 was another huge season for Diggs, as he caught 108 passes for 1,429 yards and 11 touchdowns. With his talent and the strong Buffalo passing attack, he should once again b among the league leaders in receiving for 2023.
