It's "Victory Monday" at Minnesota Vikings headquarters and few players are as excited as Stefon Diggs.

The second-year receiver's 182 yards was just 29 yards shy of breaking the long standing single-game Vikings receiving record held by Sammy White.

After the 17-14 win over Green Bay, Diggs leads the NFL in receiving yards with 285 – 59 more than the next closest player – and he's the talk of fantasy players everywhere.
