FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 16 ISSUES: STEFON DIGGS BATTLING CONUSSION, DEPRESSED NUMBERS

It has been a very trying second half of the season for Minnesota Vikings slot receiver Stefon Diggs. After coming out of the 2016 fantasy football gates looking primed to be the next big PPR dynamo, Diggs has slumped into a seemingly never-ending cycle of injury and underwhelming catch numbers since the middle of November.  Knee issues have now been followed by an apparent concussion that Diggs suffered last week and that now has him placed in the concussion protocol.  This follows a horrid last two weeks overall for Diggs who has caught just 5 passes in that span.  The fact Diggs is still in the concussion protocol this late in the week is not a good sign for his fantasy football availability for the championship week but the fallout is noteworthy since it will boost both the rising Adam Thielen and tight end Kyle Rudolph.  At the very least, Diggs is not worth using even if he does play given the fact he is playing at less than 100 percent and also for the fact he has slumped.  Take no chances in the championship and playing Diggs would be doing just such a thing.
