Buffalo Bills Game Notes
Stefon Diggs caught 7-of-9 targets for 39 yards in Buffalo's Week 12 win over the Chargers. Diggs' two targets in the first half were both negated for penalties (downfield DPI, offensive holding), technically listing him with his first target (and catch) in the third quarter. His usage over the last 30 minutes was strictly underneath or at the line of scrimmage as Josh Allen continued to run for his life from Joey Bosa (career-high three sacks) and get rid of the ball as quickly as possible. Diggs still finished with a team-high nine targets and is now averaging 12.6 in the three games John Brown (calf) has missed this year. Diggs will again rank as a volume-based WR1 with a salivating ceiling in Week 13 against the 49ers.
San Francisco 49ers Game Notes
Brandon Aiyuk (COVID-19) is practicing in full for Week 13 against the Bills. Aiyuk ended up missing only one game since the 49ers were on bye in Week 11. Deebo Samuel blew up for 11 receptions on 13 targets in Aiyuk's Week 12 absence, but this receiver corps could prove big enough for the both of 'em. With George Kittle (foot) still sidelined, coach Kyle Shanahan lacks compelling alternatives for target funnels. Samuel gets the Week 13 rankings edge following his impressive return, but Aiyuk is absolutely in the WR3 mix.
