Stefon Diggs saw his six-game streak of either at least 60 receiving yards or one touchdown reception come to an end Monday night against the New England Patriots. The Buffalo Bills were facing the Patriots in tough weather conditions that limited what they could do in the passing game.

Diggs did still finish the game with four receptions for 51 yards, including a 26-yard reception in the second half. He also just barely missed a long touchdown reception as the wind moved the ball around and he couldn’t track it to bring the catch. If he made that catch, his fantasy production would have looked very different.

For the season, Stefon Diggs is now ninth in fantasy points in PPR scoring according to FantasyPros with 202.8 fantasy points.

Is Stefon Diggs a must-start in fantasy football for Week 14?

One of the weaknesses for the Tampa Bay Bucs has been their secondary this year. This isn’t due to a lack of talent but they have dealt with their fair share of injuries losing players like Sean Murphy-Bunting, Carlton Davis, and Richard Sherman for extended periods of time.

That won’t be the case on Sunday with Murphy-Bunting returning a few weeks ago, Davis returning last week, and Richard Sherman on pace to return this week.

Even with the Bucs getting their entire starting secondary back, this should still be a good week for Stefon Diggs. I would imagine that he still finishes as a WR1 as the Bills try to look his way early and often.

Even in a game where the wind contributed as much as it did, Stefon Diggs still saw seven targets and this marks 10 out of 12 games where he has been targeted seven or more times. This should be another high-volume game for Stefon Diggs in a game where the Buffalo Bills are likely going to have to try and keep pace with the Bucs offense if they hope to come away with a win.
