Fantasy Tip: It appears like Diggs likely will be able to play in Week 7, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure. He may be limited during the game but can still be a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) will be listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles, although head coach Mike Zimmer told the media Friday, Oct. 21 that he expects Diggs to play.
Fantasy Tip: Diggs got in a full practice Friday and will have had almost three full weeks to recover from the hamstring and groin injuries that likely hindered him after his blistering start over the first two weeks of the season. If he is anywhere close to 100 percent, he may be ready to pick up where he left off before the injuries struck. Consider him a high-upside WR3 this week.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs missed the team's Week 5 game because of the injury but did have a bye week to recover. Owners will need to check later in the week to see if Diggs has a chance to play in Week 7. He is one of the team's top targets in the passing game and should be in starting lineups if he is active.

Fantasy Tip: It's possible this is purely a precautionary measure, and that Diggs will be on the field when the team holds a more formal practice on Wednesday. Still, it's a bit concerning. Monitor Diggs' status as the week progresses.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson's injury cost him time in the return game, as he was taken off that role, but he was able to play a big role in the offense. He'll have two weeks to rest with a bye in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson failed to take advantage of the absence of Stefon Diggs, and it appears he has tumbled down the depth chart behind Jarius Wright and the re-emerging Cordarrelle Patterson. There is no reason to keep Johnson rostered in most fantasy leagues.
