What to do with Stefon Diggs, John Brown in the Wild Card round of the 2021 NFL playoffs

We go over the fantasy football and DFS outlook of Stefon Diggs, John Brown ahead of the Bills Wild Card matchup against the Colts in the 2021 NFL Playoffs.

The Buffalo Bills were one of the most exciting teams to watch this season, thanks in large part to their high-flying offense. Quarterback Josh Allen’s improved play this season may him in the MVP conversation, but none of this would be possible with out the team’s incredible wide receivers, especially Stefon Diggs. Both Diggs and his teammate John Brown make good fantasy football options for this week’s Wild Card round too.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bills WRs Stefon Diggs ($7,700), John Brown ($4,700)

Diggs only needed two quarters last week to roll up 76 yards on seven catches against the Jaguars before he got to cool his heels after a red hot season that saw him post 127 receptions, 1,535 yards, and eight touchdowns. Brown saw his first action since Week 10 in the regular-season finale, hauling in all four targets that came his way for 72 yards and a touchdown.

At $7,700, Diggs is the second-most expensive player in DraftKings leagues this week, but he’s worth it, a great option for stacking with Allen. He posts points, usually lots of them, every week, and the Colts have allowed seven touchdowns to opposing wide receivers over their last four, and four players have had more than 70 yards in that same span. So just imagine what Diggs can do.

Brown is a solid option this week too, since the Bills are expected to be without Cole Beasley. That means more targets. He’s not a bad option to stack with Allen either, if you’re looking for a way to switch things up in your DFS game.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Diggs is a WR1 in traditional fantasy this week. Duh. Brown is a solid WR3. Both are worthy of a lineup spot in DFS too.
