Looking at most preseason rankings, Thielen is ranked higher than Diggs.  What's everyone's thoughts on this?  I figured Diggs would be set for a pretty big year.  Thielen is probably more consistent on a week to week basis.

 

Would you rather have Thielen or Diggs in PPR?

I think the ball will be spread around enough that neither will put up top 5 numbers, but I think Diggs will be the WR to own.

 

The more talented Cousins should be better able to take advantage of Diggs' athletic abilities than Keenum did.

This is likely going to boil down to if Diggs can stay off the injury report. His splits when he appears on the injury reports versus when he doesn't are dramatic.

I dont think Diggs is any more athletic than Thielen. Similar guys really.

Ill take Thielen for health. Otherwise pretty much splitting hairs and may depend who Counsins takes more a liking to. But tie breaks with health.

As a Diggs owner the last two years it is because of health.  Diggs seems to be effected by soft tissue injuries too often.

I own him too.  and I agree.  

 

I think Diggs is the better receiver when healthy.

 

problem with Diggs is he has trouble staying healthy.  I'm sure he will put it all together at some point.    If I knew he would be healthy all year long I'd draft him as a WR1 and I wouldnt have concerns about it.   But we have no guarantees on his health, so I think you move him down your board a little and if you can get him as a WR2 you should be happy.   you get your WR2 production overall (most likely) and you will have some WR1 upside when he is healthy.

Diggs might be the better receiver, but he's also the most injury prone.  I'd rather have Thielen.
