Game status: Stefon Diggs is ACTIVE for the playoff opener against the Colts.

Game day update: Stefon Diggs is expected to play on Saturday, per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

An alarming development in Buffalo this week as Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs made a surprise appearance on this week’s injury report. He is officially listed as questionable for Saturday’s Wild Card game against the Indianapolis Colts with an oblique injury. All eyes will be looking out for news on Diggs’ status as he’s one of the most popular picks for fantasy football lineups this week. Here’s how to handle the situation.

Fantasy impact: Stefon Diggs (oblique)

Diggs showed up on the injury report Tuesday, when he was limited in practice. He then sat out Wednesday’s session before getting back on the field in a limited capacity on Thursday. That’s probably the best sign we’ll get, outside of actual confirmation, that he’ll be active on Saturday.

If for some reason he can’t play, that would up John Brown’s value, who can be had for a song in DraftKings leagues this week. What really complicates the matter is that Cole Beasley is also questionable with a knee injury that forced him to miss last week’s game. If he can’t play, Isaiah McKenzie would handle slot duties and have real fantasy appeal too.
