Diggs and Brown reach 1,000 yards
If the Bills want to take their game to the next level, they will need Allen to take the next step as a passer since the team averaged only 19.6 points per game.
Adding Diggs should help the passing game evolve since he is a legit scoring threat and should compliment John Brown who was the only Bills receiver with 1,000 yards last season. The next closest was Cole Beasley with 778 yards which isn’t good enough when you consider the potential Allen has with his arm.

This is why Diggs was a priority for the Bills as he recorded consecutive 1,000-yard seasons with the Minnesota Vikings and wasn’t even the No. 1 target in that offence. There is no reason to think he can’t do that with the Bills as long as he gets north of 90 targets.
The trickle-down effect should also help Brown who will benefit from not having to go up against the top cornerback this season. His speed is what most NFL teams cherish and as long as he gets open, Allen will find a way to get the ball to him.
The Bills franchise quarterback passed for 3,089 yards last season while seeing his completion percentage go up from 52.8 per cent to 58.8. Getting into the high 60 to 70 per cent range will be crucial to his success and you can bet that Diggs should be able to help with that.
