5. Stefon Diggs, Minnesota Vikings

At his best, Stefon Diggs is a solid WR2 in fantasy, and a valuable asset in your search of a championship. The question is whether he’s worth a fourth-round pick, which is current ADP, according to Fantasy Football Calculator.

Packers fans know all too well how good Diggs can be, but he’s yet to become a consistent, must-start fantasy player. After three years in the NFL, the 24-year-old is yet to hit the 1,000-yard mark, although he did set a career-high in touchdowns with eight in 2017.

Maybe Kirk Cousins’ arrival will make the difference. While Case Keenum put together an excellent season in Minnesota, Cousins could take the Vikings’ offense to the next level. That would be great news for their wide receivers.

Diggs’ ADP currently has him in the range of Allen Robinson, Jarvis Landry and Josh Gordon. I’m personally higher on Robinson, but this range of the draft seems about right for Diggs.

If Cousins comes in and plays at a high level, Diggs could finally hit 1,000 yards and become a high-end WR2 in fantasy with the potential to become a WR1. He needs to stay healthy and complete all 16 games for the first time of his career.

Diggs has the talent and potential to become a difference maker on a fantasy roster. For now, he’s a solid WR2/WR3.
