Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have consistently rewarded their fantasy owners this season, but have yet to be recognized as tried and true No. 1 options. However, if the number of targets they've received this season is any indication, that may not be the case for long.

The pair's high target share is incredible on its own, Kirk Cousins' preference for the two receivers really drives the point home.
Volume always equals production when it comes to fantasy football and as long as Cousins keeps throwing the ball to his favorite receivers, Diggs' and Thielen's status as No. 1 options will remain for the rest of the season.
