Is anyone concerned that while it may be good for the Vikings to move to Teddy B, it may be bad for Diggs/Theilen from FF perspective? I have an offer to trade diggs away from Ertz straight up and deadline is this thursday.
1 pt ppr, 2 rb, 2wr, 2flex and 1 TE.
Cooper, Juju, Diggs, CoCo, Jordy are WRs today.
I would be playing Ertz and Gronk every week, and then when Olsen comes, he can take the other flex spot leaving Cooper and CoCo/Jordy/Juju as WRs.

I'm not a fan of loading up at the TE position, which is essentially a "onesie" position. Olsen is on his way back, and that way you can flex 2 TE's if needed. I'd say go for it, but the biggest thing holding me back would be as follows: Jay Ajayi was added to the run game and we don't know what the Eagles will do when they're in the Red Zone.
Wentz has been on fire and if his TD rate regresses to the mean, then Ertz will see a drop off as well. He's already at a new career high for TDs and should get a few more, but you never know if the regression monster will hit.
I'm certainly not worried about Bridgewater taking over the offense either. I think Diggs will be fine when they change the offense. Plus Minn WR face a fairly soft upcoming schedule.
All that said, if you feel like this is a move you that helps your team ROS, go for it.

Agree with @hrr5010. Diggs has a much higher ceiling. The concerns about Bridgewater are reasonable, but one of the great things about Diggs is that he hasn't been very QB sensitive, which isn't something you can say about most of the WRs around the league.

Diggs has the higher ceiling, and also he's likely your best WR, so I would be more inclined to keep Diggs, even if I thought his scoring would be identical to Ertz.

Here's the thing. Unless he's just not healthy, and in that case, he won't be starting anyways, Teddy's floor is probably where an average Keenum falls. So unless he's not healthy (in which case, he won't be playing for long if he even sees the field) it's unlikely that he hurts Diggs or Thielen.
On the flip side, Teddy just turned 25. He's still young. He's got real upside if he can develop as a passer. So the potential exists that he unlocks the Vikings offense even more. So with that in mind, it has the potential to help Diggs & Thielen (and by extension, all Vikings skill position players).
This graph was posted in an article on purpleptsd.com (see link to full article below), so credit to them. But it's a good visualization of what the potential Case vs Teddy outcomes are:
