INJURY RISK

2021:

Long-Term:

2/5

2/5

Bottom Line:
Diggs led the league in catches and yards despite playing through a torn oblique muscle. That muscle should be fully healed going into 2021, so we expect Diggs to contend for top WR yet again. His injury history elevates his long-term risk slightly, but relatively safe for his position.

Major Injuries:
2016 - groin strain, knee sprain, hip sprain
2017 - groin strain
2018 - rib contusion
2021 - (Jan) oblique muscle tear

Games Played:
2020 - 16/16
2019 - 15/16
2018 - 15/16
2017 - 14/16
2016 - 13/16
2015 - 13/16

Performance:
Expect Diggs to return to Pro Bowl form after recovering from his torn oblique muscle. Pro Football Focus rates him as a Tier 1 WR, and every indication suggests to us that he will fulfill those expectations.

Durability:
Diggs has missed games for groin strains previously, and had a recent oblique muscle tear. This injury history is associated with slightly shorter careers in NFL players, so we do have to slightly elevate our long-term concern levels. However, Diggs is still relatively safe amongst WRs.
