The Buffalo Bills take on the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football in a huge matchup for AFC playoff seeding. The Bills start their practice week without stud wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who is out with an illness.
Diggs’ absence isn’t great, but NFL players usually can play despite illnesses, and with five days until game-time, we shouldn’t be too worried about his status just yet.
Stefon Diggs injury updates
Friday, Dec. 30 update — Diggs is back at practice on Friday, per ESPN’s Alaina Getzenberg.
Thursday, Dec. 29 update — Stefon Diggs won’t practice on Thursday due to an illness, per Matt Parrino.
Fantasy football advice
Diggs is one of the best wide receivers in the game and ranks third in fantasy football scoring at the position. He currently is on pace to beat his career high in receiving yards and touchdowns. You know you’re playing him if he suits up. If he somehow doesn’t, Gabe Davis would get a good bump in fantasy upside.
