Stefon Diggs expected to dominate Bills' targets

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs will command a high number of targets as the team's new No. 1 receiver, writes Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic.

What It Means:

John Brown led the Bills with 115 targets and Cole Beasley was second with 106 looks. Diggs is fully expected to move atop the totem pole while Brown and Beasley figure to see respective reductions in volume. He should also benefit from not having to share No. 1 receiver status with Adam Thielen, who accounted for more than 20 percent of the Minnesota Vikings target share over the first eight weeks of 2019 before getting hurt in Week 9. Diggs finished with a comparable 21.9 percent target share.

Diggs is the WR24 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 119.3 targets, 73.3 receptions, 998.1 yards, and 5.1 touchdowns.
