Stefon Diggs' laughter quickly faded, however, abruptly replaced with a serious look and tone, when he was asked about his rookie campaign — you know, the rookie season that seemed to catch many observers by surprise as he led the Vikings in targets (84), receptions (52), receiving yards (720) and yards after catch (300)?
“As far as my rookie season, I don’t want to talk about it. I was disappointed in myself,” Diggs said stone-faced. “Everything that’s in the past is in the past. I look forward to this new year.”
Diggs thought he was better than his numbers and moving forward said he wants to be a lot better. As the story pointed out, he did fade a bit down the stretch when the weather got cold and it was obviously he was QB Teddy Bridgewater's go-to guy. But with Laquon Treadwell joining the receiving corps, it’s hard to envision Diggs’ role expanding much more than the 6.5 targets per game he saw as a rookie.
