Updating an earlier report, Stefon Diggs (ribs) is practicing in full for Week 11 against the Bears.
This confirms Diggs will be back for Sunday's divisional showdown at Soldier Field. Diggs was absent for Week 9 but had last week's bye to rest his bruised ribs. Even against an underrated Bears secondary, the 24-year-old should be started in all formats. Nov 14 - 5:19 PM

Stefon Diggs (ribs) is practicing Wednesday.

Diggs has had two weeks to rest up with the Vikings' Week 10 bye. He's fully expected to return for Sunday night's game with Chicago.
Nov 14 - 2:21 PM

Stefon Diggs (ribs) told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport he participated in Monday's practice.

"I know I will play," Diggs said on RapSheet's podcast. After sitting out Week 9 and coming off a bye week, Diggs has now had two weeks to heal up. It would be a surprise if he is not ready to face the Bears on Sunday night.
Nov 13 - 12:32 PM

Stefon Diggs (ribs) is inactive for Week 9 against the Lions.

As expected. Diggs was injured last week late against the Saints. Not much was made of his injury until late this week after he missed the practice week. The Vikings figure to roll with Laquon Treadwell and Aldrick Robinson behind Adam Thielen. Dalvin Cook (hamstring) is active Sunday.
Nov 4 - 11:33 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Stefon Diggs (ribs) is not expected to play Week 9 against the Lions.

The writing was on the wall after Minnesota promoted Chad Beebe from the practice squad on Saturday. With a bye in Week 10, the Vikings likely want to play it safe with their star receiver. Laquon Treadwell will see more snaps, but Kyle Rudolph might get the bigger fantasy boost with Diggs sidelined.
Nov 4 - 12:14 AM

ESPN's Courtney Cronin reports Stefon Diggs (questionable, ribs) is in doubt for Sunday's game with Detroit.

The Vikings promoted Chad Beebe from the practice squad, a sign they don't expect Diggs to be active. Diggs played through his injury Sunday night but is on the wrong side of questionable after not practicing all week. The Vikings have incentive not to push Diggs with an upcoming bye. Kyle Rudolph and Laquon Treadwell will see increased targets if Diggs sits.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Diggs looking doubtful this week, we could be looking at a 20 target game for Adam Thielen. Treadwell, Robinson, and Rudolph should see a couple more targets each, but Thielen will be the main beneficiary and should put up monster numbers which he was already doing with Diggs in. He's the most expensive WR in DFS this week, which could lower his ownership, but his upside is immense this week.

Stefon Diggs (ribs) is questionable for Week 9 against the Lions.

Diggs returned to practice for the first time all week Friday but was reportedly limited and promptly removed from the field after a few short minutes of work. He'll potentially be limited on Sunday, but we still fully expect him to play. Diggs would garner premier corner Darius Slay's coverage on the outside given that Slay never travels to the slot (where Adam Thielen primarily plays). It's a tough matchup, but one that could quietly lead to a shootout given the offensive tendencies of both teams involved.
Nov 2 - 1:34 PM

Stefon Diggs (ribs) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Speaking Thursday, Diggs said he "absolutely" expects to play against the Lions, but he could need to show something in Friday's practice. As of Thursday afternoon, fantasy owners can leave him penciled into lineups.
Nov 1 - 2:25 PM

Stefon Diggs (ribs) "absolutely" expects to play against the Lions.

Diggs did not practice on Wednesday. We have yet to see his Thursday status. No player is as effective when injured, but it has always been particularly acute with Diggs. Hopefully he can give it a go against Detroit, but he might deserve a bump down in the rankings.
Nov 1 - 2:01 PM

Updating an earlier report, Stefon Diggs missed Wednesday's practice with a rib injury.

Diggs didn't miss any time with the injury in Sunday night's loss. This is something he can play through if it's just a bruise, but Diggs isn't going to get in much practice time this week. He may come down to a game-time decision for Week 9.
Oct 31 - 4:27 PM

Stefon Diggs (undisclosed) is not practicing Wednesday.

Diggs appeared to suffer some sort of core injury late in the Week 8 loss to the Saints, but nothing was announced. He was on the field in sweats on Wednesday. We'll have to keep an eye on Diggs headed into Thursday.
Oct 31 - 2:30 PM

Stefon Diggs caught 9-of-10 targets for 111 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Saints.

Diggs had a big first quarter, making a 31-yard catch before getting in the end-zone on fourth down a few plays later. He ran the wrong route on Kirk Cousins’ pick six, but it was an otherwise solid game from Diggs, who led the Vikings in both yards and targets. This was a needed breakout after Diggs was held under 40 yards the last two weeks. Diggs is a WR2 for Week 9 against Detroit.
Oct 28 - 11:40 PM

Stefon Diggs caught 8-of-14 targets for 33 yards in the Vikings' Week 7 win over the Jets.

Adam Thielen hung a 9-110-1 day up on 10 targets while Diggs struggled in Morris Claiborne's coverage much of the afternoon. Diggs was getting targets close to the line of scrimmage and had trouble getting anything after the catch. The 14 targets were his second-most of the season. Diggs will look to get back on track next week in a home game against the Saints. The last time he saw them, in the playoffs, Diggs became a legend with the Minnesota Miracle.
Oct 21 - 5:03 PM

Stefon Diggs caught 3-of-5 passes for 33 yards in Week 6 against the Cardinals.

Diggs took a backseat to Adam Thielen, who accounted for over half of Kirk Cousins' yards. The five targets were the lowest he's seen all year. Diggs should rebound in a matchup with the Jets in Week 7.
Oct 14 - 4:56 PM

Stefon Diggs caught 10-of-11 targets for 91 yards in the Vikings' Week 5 win over the Eagles, adding two carries for 25 additional yards.

The 10-catch game was Diggs' second straight, while he's now drawn 10 targets in four straight games after a disappointing Week 1. He's cleared 90 yards in 3-of-5 contests. It has been Adam Thielen making the splash plays in the Vikings' receiver corps thus far, but it is only a matter of time before Diggs has a true blow-up game. He has stayed healthy and is seeing the requisite volume. The Vikings host the bottom-three Cardinals in Week 6.
