Stefon Diggs

If Josh Allen is going to have a good game, it will likely mean that Stefon Diggs is going to be heavily involved. The Bills number one wide receiver also broke out last year and finished leading the league in receptions and receiving yards.

Last year, even though the Steelers were one of the better pass defenses they didn’t have an answer for Diggs. He would end up finishing the game with 10 receptions, 130 receiving yards and one touchdown.

The other reason that Diggs is a player that I will be watching is because of the fact that we haven’t seen him in the preseason. He had been dealing with a knee injury during training camp and even though most starters played in the final preseason game against the Packers, the Bills tried to remain cautious and held him out.

This is going to be a good test for Stefon Diggs but he already proved he can play well against this defense. The Bills offense, and team as a whole, are going to need big games from Allen and Diggs.
