Lunchbreak: PFF Tallies Perfection for Stefon Diggs on Corner Routes

Posted Feb 21, 2018

Stefon Diggs shined in his third pro season, recording 64 catches for 849 receiving yards and a career-high eight touchdowns.

Analytics site Pro Football Focus praised Diggs’ performance throughout the season and most recently pointed out his execution when running a specific route.

According to PFF, Diggs had a perfect passer rating (158.3) when targeted on corner routes. The passer rating was 56.5 points higher than the NFL average. He impressed on other routes, as well, recording a 126.7 passer rating when targeted on post routes and 114.3 on cross routes.

NFL.com’s Fabiano creates ‘fantasy wish list’ for Vikings QB scenario

The Vikings will continue their process of determining who their quarterback will be for the 2018 season, whether that means re-signing a signal caller currently on the roster or bringing in a new name.

And while General Manager Rick Spielman and Head Coach Mike Zimmer work to identify the best fit for their football team moving forward, NFL.com’s Michael Fabiano instead took a more casual look at Minnesota’s quarterback situation. He evaluated the position group from a fantasy football perspective

Fabiano said that he would like two different scenarios: one, that the Vikings sign Kirk Cousins in free agency, or two, that they re-sign Case Keenum for a second year in Purple. Fabiano wrote:

The Vikings don't have a quarterback under contract, as Case Keenum, Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater are all [set to become] free agents. So ... what if the team signed Cousins? With Dalvin Cook, Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph all in the mix, Minnesota would have one hell of a fantasy-friendly offense.

[…]

[If] Cousins doesn't land in Minnesota, I'd like to see [the Vikings] retain Keenum. New Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo wants a mobile, athletic quarterback under center, and Keenum would fit the bill. He was solid for the Vikings and fantasy fans alike last season, scoring at least 16.9 points in seven of his final eight games of the fantasy season. That includes four games with 19-plus points.

Anthony Harris Treating Single-Parent Families to Night at the Movies

Anthony Harris is often seen out and about in the Twin Cities, giving back to the community throughout the football season.

But although he’s currently enjoying the offseason, Harris hasn’t taken a break from giving back. The Vikings safety recently returned to his home state of Virginia and has a special evening in store for children and their parents on Thursday.

According to Harris’ Instagram account, he is partnering with Richmond radio station 106.5 The Beat to treat 20 single-parent households to a screening of Black Panther, the highly anticipated new Marvel film.
