Minnesota Vikings snap counts: Diggs tops at WR

Stefon Diggs played more than any non-quarterback skill-position player for the Minnesota Vikings and continued to produce.

Charles Johnson’s immersion back into the Minnesota Vikings’ offense was a slow one as he comes back from a rib injury. Johnson played in nine snaps while his replacement in the starting lineup, rookie Stefon Diggs, played in 60 of the 75 offensive snaps, more than any other skill position player on offense other than QB Teddy Bridgewater.

Diggs was also targeted more than any player (nine times), had more catches (six) and more receiving yards (108) than anyone else as his production continues. He was the first Vikings receiver this year to reach the 100-yard mark in a game last week against Kansas City and did it again Sunday against the Detroit Lions, becoming the team’s leader in receiving yards. In three games played, Diggs has 324 yards receiving, surpassing veteran Mike Wallace, who has 292 yards. Wallace still has the receptions lead with 26 while Diggs is second with 19.

Wallace had 56 snaps while Jarius Wright had 26, Adam Thielen 23, Johnson had nine and Cordarrelle Patterson had four.

On defense, safeties Harrison Smith and Andrew Sendejo, along with linebacker Anthony Barr, were the only players to go all 54 snaps. Xavier Rhodes was credited with 53 snaps and Terence Newman 52.

Defensive ends Everson Griffen and Brian Robison were the workhorses of the defensive line, playing 51 of the 54 snaps. Defensive tackles Tom Johnson and Linval Joseph each played 44 snaps while newcomer Kenrick Ellis played five downs in his first action with the Vikings after being signed last week.
