1. Stefon Diggs leads the NFL in receptions and finishes in the top three in yardage

It was not too long ago that Stefon Diggs was able to accomplish this specific bold prediction in his first season with the Bills in 2020. In his first year catching passes from Josh Allen, Diggs put up 127 receptions and 1,535 yards and it ultimately helped Allen take a gigantic leap in his career that earned him MVP votes.

Say what you want about the offseason drama between Diggs and the organization, Diggs is still a valuable player to the team overall and he is one of the reasons why the offense flows the way it does. 

Part of his frustrations that he commented on included lack of being involved in the plays, so maybe this year will change that perception and Diggs will be utilized like he was in 2020. Diggs is not a long-ball type of receiver, but he can be. He is more used on the sidelines and in the middle of the field.

With the other weapons around Allen this season that includes Gabe Davis, Dawson Knox, Deonte Harty and rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid, Diggs may not have to face double coverage which will give him extra opportunities to be heavily involved with the offense.
