As NFL training camps approach and offseason workouts are in full swing, there's excitement stirring over the 2021-22 season. The Buffalo Bills head into this year as a serious threat to win the Super Bowl, as the pairing of star quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs took this team to new heights last campaign.

However, ProFootballFocus has a questionable ranking for Diggs in their recent top-50 players list.

Stefon Diggs PFF

PFF placed Diggs at No. 45 on their player power rankings heading into this season, one spot behind the New Orleans Saints' Michael Thomas (No. 44). That can only been seen as disrespectful considering their vastly different seasons last year.

Diggs looked like the top wideout in the league in 2020. He led the NFL in receptions (127) and yards (1,535) while hauling in 8 TDs. Thomas, meanwhile, had an injury-plagued 2020 campaign where he failed to make much of an impact and looked far removed from his league-leading 2019 campaign.

It seems as though Thomas is coasting by on past success than current results. It'd be no surprise to see Diggs have an even better year in his second season catching passes from Allen. Not to mention, Thomas could may fare much worse with Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston as his QBs during the 2021-22 campaign.
