That’s an attractive matchup for owners who have anyone on the Patriots. Teammate Chris Hogan stands to inherit some additional targets. He has five games with 60 or more yards; that trend should continue.
Stefon Diggs, WR, Vikings: Minnesota’s top wideout fully practiced on Thursday and Friday, and seems in line to play Sunday at Cleveland. Diggs’s return is a sigh of relief for his owners, who hope he picks up the pace he was setting through the first four weeks of the season. He should be in your lineup on Sunday.

Lockhart was a vocal and forceful presence during his time in the league. He responded aggressively to reports he deemed unfair to the league’s record on health and safety issues. This season, he conducted regular conference calls with reporters to make certain the NFL’s views on relevant issues were known.
“When I got here, my mission was to shake things up a bit,” Lockhart wrote in Thursday’s memo. “As one of the most important and iconic cultural institutions in our country, the NFL is subject to almost as much scrutiny as our Government. Americans’ passion for the game generates debates every bit as heated as those in politics. In fact, as I’ve shared with some of you, the two years in this role feels a lot like my two years as White House press secretary.
