Stefon Diggs has proven himself as one of the top and most prolific wide receivers in the NFL since he joined the Buffalo Bills in 2020. However, he's been experiencing a slump in performance of late.
Diggs achieved more than 100 receiving yards in five out of his initial six games this season, but since Oct. 15, he hasn't hit the three-digit mark. Over the following ten games, he's only managed 476 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Since the Bills' return from their bye week, Diggs' numbers have dropped further, with not one game seeing him exceed 50 yards.
Regardless of Diggs' recent slump, Bills coach Sean McDermott still views him as a crucial player in their team's success. McDermott believes Diggs contributes significantly to the team's energy and team dynamic, stating, "he’s a valued member of our team and particularly our offense and we’re going to need him down the stretch here.”
McDermott attributes Diggs' dip in form to heightened focus on him by the opposition, rather than any conscious change in approach. With the postseason looming, and the Bills striving for a spot, getting Diggs back to his usual standard of play is high on Buffalo's priority list.
