FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 5 INJURY ISSUES: GROIN TO KEEP OUT STEFON DIGGS

The Minnesota Vikings are off to an undefeated start to 2016 which is an astonishing accomplishment considering they have lost both starting running back Adrian Peterson and QB Teddy Bridgewater to seaosn-ending injuries.  Now it appears as though they will have to make due without their top wideout as Stefon Diggs has been ruled "doubtful" to suit up against the Houston Texans due to a stubborn groin injury.  After a monster start to his season, Diggs has been hobbled by the groin the last two days which coincided with a couple of off games in that span.  Now it looks like it is only getting worse as Diggs will likely be out Week 5 as a doubtful label makes it almost 80 percent a player will sit under that premise.  Diggs came into the season as a low-end WR 3 and that has not changed now given the injury and the recent downturn in numbers.  Despite the injury, hold onto Diggs if you can do so. Meanwhile those who are desperate at wideout can give Cordarelle Patterson a try given his big-time speed and the fact he has a strong-armed QB in Sam Bradford now.
