WR: Stefon Diggs, Buffalo Bills

While running back James Cook has been a benefactor of the Bills' decision to fire offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey and promote quarterbacks coach Joe Brady to interim offensive coordinator, it has been quite the opposite for Stefon Diggs, who has scored 6.7 PPR points or less in three of his past four games.  

The volume has still been there for Diggs, earning exactly 11 targets in each of his past two games and at least eight targets in three of the past four games. For whatever reason, he and quarterback Josh Allen have been unable to connect in recent weeks the way we’ve become accustomed to seeing.

With the Bills sitting at 7-6 and currently on the outside looking into the AFC’s playoff picture, they’re fighting for their postseason lives and will continue to lean heavily on their superstar wide receiver.

Up next for Diggs and the Bills is a matchup against the Cowboys and their highly-regarded defensive unit. However, the Cowboys' defense has been vulnerable through the air in recent weeks, allowing 273.3 passing yards per game in their past three games (compared to 183.9 yards per game on the season).

Cowboys cornerback Daron Bland has had a remarkable season, scoring defensive touchdowns at a historic rate. As a ballhawk, Bland is susceptible to allowing big plays when going after the ball so aggressively, as seen by DK Metcalf’s performance in Week 13.

With every game from this point on essentially being a must-win game for the Bills, starting with a potential shootout against the Cowboys (tied for highest Over/Under of Week 15 slate, per FanDuel Sportsbook), expect Diggs to come up with a huge performance.
