REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Stefon Diggs to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 85 projected fantasy points puts him at #18 behind Tyler Boyd and ahead of Antonio Brown. He has averaged 10.16 fantasy points in his past 39 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 10.6 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#14) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #14 ranked wide receiver.

Stefon Diggs is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #6 fantasy position rank.
