Both Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen Explode, Eat Equal Chunks of Vikings Aerial Pie

Looks like both Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen will get solid chunks of the Vikings' aerial pie.

All offseason the debate between whether Stefon Diggs or Adam Thielen would dominate targets.  The obvious answer staring everyone in the face should have been, both!  Sunday, in a thrilling tie with the Packers, both Diggs and Thielen went bananas as each eclipsed 100 yards and found the end zone.  With a shiny new gunslinger at quarterback, both of these receivers stocks have never been higher.

New Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins may have struggled some in his first game with his new team, but his second game showed just how dangerous and unstoppable this offense can be.  Diggs provides excellent pass catching ability and silky smooth route running, creating an insane average of three yards of separation per pass.  Thielen creates 2.8 yards of separation per pass and features a 72% catch rate, whereas Diggs records a catch rate around 63%.  Through the first two weeks, Cousins is fourth in the league in pass attempts and is completing 65.5% of his passes.  Diggs and Thielen both drip with talent and have the usage to back it up.  Both of these receivers stocks are soaring and both have league winning upside for their price tags. New OC John DeFilippo is using them as creatively as predicted, and his explosive aerial attack is highly concentrated on these two weapons. If possible, target either of these receivers in trade talks heading into this week. Regardless, their fantasy stocks are going through the roof.
