Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs Swing Fantasy Championships in Week 16, Set to Dominate Again in Fantasy Football 2021

The Josh AllenStefon Diggs combo continued their assault on opposing defenses in Week 16 when they bent over the Patriots secondary. Allen added another score through the air, but Diggs alone caught nine passes for 145 yards and three touchdowns, likely swinging the outcome of hundreds of fantasy championship games.

While we were higher on Allen than most, their immediate and instant connection was extremely surprising. Diggs is one of the league’s top route runners and couldn’t work with Kirk Cousins. Meanwhile, Allen has never hit the broad side of a barn throughout his entire football career. Then once the league added a COVID-shortened preseason, we saw the potential for disaster.

Boy, were we wrong.

Allen had targeted his No. 1 wideout at least 10 times in the last four games and the quarterback has the utmost trust in his elite receiver. Allen will target Diggs on long balls when he’s double covered, he’ll target him on the run, and he’ll target him across the middle. It doesn’t matter. As a result, Diggs leads the league in receiving yards with 1,459 yds and added eight touchdowns on an obscene 120 receptions — with one game remaining.

“If shit ain’t going right, he’s like, ‘Just get open and catch the ball,’” Diggs said of Allen.

Of course, we can’t talk about these two without going into greater detail on Allen’s incredible, fantasy-league-winning season. Entering the last week of the season, Allen only trails Kyler Murray by a measly fantasy point for the position’s top dog. He also broke Jim Kelly’s single-season passing touchdown record with 34 and is only 40 yards away from breaking the Bills’ single-season passing yards record. And just like Diggs, he won (and lost) hundreds of fantasy titles with his four-touchdown performance on Monday Night Football against the Patriots.

All of the NFL draft nerds were wrong about Allen and we hope you listened to us when it came to drafting the Konami Code weapon during the offseason.

“I don’t know the old Josh,” Diggs said when asked about his last touchdown grab on Monday night. “That’s veteran-level stuff.”

LOOKING FORWARD TO 2021

Not to brag, but The Wolf was (likely) the first to post his 2021 Fantasy Football Rankings and Big Board. Looking at the first draft, as one would expect, Allen and Diggs rank highly on both the Big Board and their respective positional rankings.

Allen comes in at QB3 (48 overall), ahead of the likes of Murray, Lamar Jackson, and Deshaun Watson. Diggs checks in at WR4 (11 overall), slightly behind DeAndre Hopkins, but ahead of DK Metcalf, Calvin Ridley, and Allen Robinson.

Is The Wolf too high on these teammates? Or do you have any issues with his 2021 Rankings? Let him know.
