Though the Bills finished 10-6 last season in the AFC East, they still finished behind the New England Patriots. With Diggs on their team, Josh Allen will have a clear option and figures to open lanes for running back Devin Singletary. As opposing teams cannot afford to leave Diggs in single coverage, his addition could help the Bills overtake the Patriots.
