Stefon Diggs has most productive three-game stretch of any Vikings receiver

AP

The Vikings have had plenty of great receivers over the years. None has had more receiving yardage in a three-game stretch than Stefon Diggs.

Yes, Stefon Diggs. The guy who as of three weeks ago was believed to want out of Minnesota has generated 453 receiving yards in wins over the Eagles, Lions, and Washington, a franchise record.

Diggs has done it with 167 yards against the Giants followed by identical seven-catch, 143-yard showings against Detroit and Washington.

For the year, Diggs has 37 catches for 706 yards and four touchdowns. Which is a far cry from the six catches for 101 yards he had through the first three games of the season.

Diggs’ latest performance came without Adam Thielen in the lineup. The Vikings will need both guys to be healthy and productive over the next two weeks, when the schedule dials up trips to Kansas City and Dallas.

  1. Hate the Vikings, but I will say Diggs is ridiculously good. If he was on a team that utilized his talent the most, he could be on Antonio Browns level.

  2. Oh Puhleeeese!

    The hero here is Cousins, the fabulous QB who lowered himself to apologize to this cretin Stefon Diggs, the perennial whiner and malcontent. And let’s not forget, it’s not like he was up against even middling competetion in thei 3-game stretch. I mean, he was essentially undefended, wide open.

    Let’s not get too excited here, people.

  3. Except for that lazy fumble at the beginning of the game. They’re lucky to be playing against one of the 3 worst teams in the league.

  4. Things turned around nicely after that slow start. However, there are some really big games coming up in Dallas, KC, and Seattle that will give us a better idea if the Vikes are for real.

  5. It was always crazy reading people say Thielen was better than Diggs. It’s never been close. Diggs literally makes the game so much easier for Thielen. He matches up against the opponents’ best cornerback and plays both outside and the slot. Never really got how Thielen could be better.

    Pretty impressive considering Randy Moss was on the Vikings when Favre was there
    ————————-

    Dude are you serious? Favre was a packer his entire career and only played his last two years in 2009 + 2010 with the vikings when Randy Moss was on the patriots.

    Moss was busy making daunte culpepper looking like he was actually a good qb… Still cant believe the dolphins chose him over brees in 2006…

  7. Just for the sake of accuracy, Moss did play four games with Favre in 2010. So Moss was on the Vikings when Favre was there, but both players were well past their prime so I don’t know why anyone would expect record-setting performances in those four games.

    That was for only for 3 or 4 games in 2010!

  9. It’s not Diggs or Thielen. It’s not Thielen or Diggs. It’s – alphabetical here – Diggs AND Thielen. Go Vikings!!

  10. With the list of viking receivers being great, that’s impressive.
    Yes.. the Favre- Moss thing didn’t last long, but he did catch old banjo’s 500th TD pass.
