Stefon Diggs is the NFL’s leader in receiving yards by the end of Week 5

Stefon Diggs has gotten off to a great start to the year and has 31 receptions, 402 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns. The receiving touchdowns are good enough to be tied, with Washington Commanders’ wide receiver Jahan Dotson, for the league lead.

However, he ranks third in receiving yards behind Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill and Denver Broncos’ wide receiver Courtland Sutton (although Sutton’s total is through five games).

On Sunday, Diggs will not only close the gap with Hill, who is 75 receiving yards ahead of the Bills’ wide receiver but surpass him to be the league leader in receiving yards through five games.

The Steelers defense has struggled against the pass and is allowing on average over 250 yards. Josh Allen should have a big game this week and Stefon Diggs is a player who should be looked at often. This, combined with the fact that the Dolphins will have Teddy Bridgewater under center, sets Stefon Diggs up to make that jump this week.
