In fact, from 1974 till 1979, India managed only one ODI win, which was against Pakistan in 1978 at Quetta which they won by four runs. However, the team had to face humiliation in the 1979 World Cup as they were knocked out in the first round, which included a loss to then-minnows Sri Lanka.Also Read | China shuns India’s request to support listing of Masood Azhar as global terroristHowever, the emergence of a talismanic all-rounder in Kapil Dev changed Indian cricket’s fortunes forever.

Fantasy Football Value Analysis: Stefon Diggs traded to Bills

first_imgPerhaps the biggest winner in all this is Josh Allen. He finished last season as the No. 6 fantasy QB, and adding another weapon like Diggs can only help him maintain his spot as an upper-tier starter. It’s tough to justify drafting him much higher than sixth, but he’s at least in that top-five discussion.Fantasy Football Value: Kirk Cousins, Adam Thielen affected by Diggs tradeFor key Vikings players, Diggs’s departure likely means more opportunities. Thielen will see tighter coverage, but the extra targets should make up for that, leaving him on the doorstep of WR1 status. Bisi Johnson, and TEs Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith Jr. will likely pick up most of the extra targets, which will make them more appealing heading into next year, but given how infrequently Minnesota throws, it’s unlikely any will skyrocket up the rankings. It’s really Thielen who figures to be the main beneficiary, though Smith could be a popular sleeper by late next summer. Kirk Cousins will see a hit in value, which was inevitable anyway after we saw the organizational shift if game plan. Cousins can still be an efficient and effective QB, but for fantasy purposes, he’s merely a backup. Losing his top deep threat and one of the 20 most talented receivers in the NFL isn’t going to help. Fantasy Football Value: Stefon Diggs traded to BillsIt was no secret that Diggs was unhappy during his final season in Minnesota despite the fact he set a career high in yards (1,130). Diggs saw his targets fall by 55 and his receptions by 39 compared to 2018, and his touchdowns fell from nine to six. He was almost entirely big-play dependent, which was the opposite of the season before. Buffalo already has a big-play receiver in John Brown (72-1,060-6), so Diggs will likely function as more of a possession receiver, at least more than he was last year. That should lead to more receptions (good for PPR), but his yards could take a hit. While still a “running team,” Buffalo threw 47 more pass attempts last season than the Vikings, who were one of just three teams to run more than pass last year. Considering Minnesota doesn’t have a running quarterback, that says a lot about its offensive philosophy, so it’s not a bad thing for Diggs to find a new home. Ideally, that new home wouldn’t have been Buffalo, but there are still plenty of opportunities for Diggs to do work with a strong-armed young quarterback. His overall impact could be similar last year, as we know the 26-year-old receiver can put up numbers as a big-play guy or a possession guy. We still look at him as a WR2, but the potential is there for more. He’ll eat into Brown’s production, bumping him down to the WR3 line, but Brown still has upside.  Stefon Diggs wanted out of Minnesota, and he got his wish on Monday when the Vikings traded him and a 2020 seventh-round pick to the Bills in exchange for first-, fifth-, and sixth-round picks in ’20 and a fourth-round pick in ’21. The move will have a big effect on the fantasy values of several key players heading into next season, including Josh Allen, John Brown, Kirk Cousins, and Adam Thielen. We”ll break it all down below.
