In Buffalo, Sean McDermott is holding his cards close to the vest. Speaking to reporters on Tuesday afternoon, McDermott indicated he knows what he’s going to do for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins [as far as resting starters]. But he’s not saying.
“I’m going to keep that plan internal because I think that’s what’s best for us,” McDermott said, via Chris Brown of the Bills’ official website.
The Chiefs clinched the top seed and will rest some starters while the Steelers announced Ben Roethlisberger won't play in Week 17. The Bills are currently the AFC’s No. 2 seed, though they could fall to No. 3 if the Steelers beat the Browns and Buffalo loses to Miami.
BUF WR Stefon Diggs - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Miami
Stefon Diggs had double-digit targets for the sixth time in the last seven games and now has three straight 100+ yards receiving games. He and QB Josh Allen are in a zone right now and with the No. 2 seed on the line, they will continue their run as long as both are healthy.
Diggs faces the Dolphins for the second time this season. He caught 8 passes for a season-high 153 yards and a touchdown. Miami is ranked 21st in aFPA to wide receivers.
With a favorable matchup and the fact that Diggs will play with Allen, Diggs still ranks a WR1 for Week 17. He might not play the whole game, but he will get enough fantasy numbers to help your fantasy team.
