Stefon Diggs betting odds as of 6/11/2024:

💰 Over/Under 900.5 receiving yards (-112 over, -112 under)

💰 T14th best odds of leading the NFL in receiving yards (+2200)

💰 T11th best odds of winning Offensive Player of the Year (+2500)


Fantasy Football:


Stefon Diggs is beginning a new (final?) chapter of his career, spending year 10 in the NFL and his age 31 season with the ascending Houston Texans following a disastrous close to the Bills chapter of his career.


Over the first 9 games of 2023, Diggs was the same guy we've known and loved for the better part of a decade, averaging an ELITE 21.7 PPR points and 10.8 targets per game.


He scored 7 touchdowns and scored 16 or more PPR points in 8 of 9 games, including 4 different games over 20 PPR points. Elite.


But Diggs spent the final 10 games of the season on the side of milk cartons after falling off the face of the Earth, averaging just 8 targets and 9.6(!) PPR points per game.


He scored just 1 total touchdown over the final 10 games and scored fewer than 9 PPR points in 7 of 10 games, including zero games over 20. Brutal collapse.


Of course...it's also no coincidence that the Bills changed Offensive Coordinators around the same time of the collapse, moving from Ken Dorsey to Joe Brady, a former Panthers Offensive Coordinator who once coached an offense where DJ Moore finished BEHIND Robbie Anderson and Curtis Samuel in fantasy football...


Heading into 2024, Diggs IS just one year removed the 2nd best season of his 9 year career, not to mention three straight finishes as a top 7 WR in fantasy football. There's gas left in the tank.


But where will he fit into an offense that already boasts Nico Collins, Tank Dell and Dalton Schultz, not to mention Joe Mixon?


There IS room for growth in the Texans' passing volume department after finishing a modest 12th in passing attempts last year; everyone would benefit from CJ Stroud throwing more passes.


Still, with so many mouths to feed in Houston, what should we expect from Diggs in 2024?


For what it's worth, FanDuel's sportsbook currently has Diggs pegged for over/under 900.5 receiving yards despite 6 straight seasons over 1,000.


For context, 900.5 receiving yards last year would have ranked 31st among all WRs in the NFL, suggesting his WR 23 ADP may be a bit inflated.


Ultimately, Stefon Diggs IS going to score fantasy football points in 2024, including the occasional week-winning eruption of 20+ PPR points.


But he will also frustrate fantasy managers at times due to a lack of consistency and predictability.


He's a much more appetizing pick in best ball drafts than season-long leagues where you have to make lineup decisions.


Diggs is currently ranked 24th overall in BBFF's 2024 Fantasy Football Draft Guide (see below)!
