Ten traded players who will have biggest impact on 2024 NFL season


  • TRADED BY: Buffalo Bills
  • TRADED FOR: 2025 second-round pick (with Houston receiving a 2024 sixth-round pick and 2025 fifth-round pick)

So, you’re an aspiring AFC power and you want to help your young QB cement his place among the NFL’s A-listers? Get Diggs. His name might not carry as much of a kick as it did in 2020, when he joined the Bills via trade to supercharge their offense. He’ll turn 31 in November, and he closed out his Bills tenure with more drama than production (42.2 receiving yards per game over his final 10 games, including playoffs). But he still ranked in the top 10 in the NFL in catches (107, seventh) and receiving scores (eight, tied for eighth), and he won’t have to shoulder the load in Houston, where Nico Collins, Tank Dell and tight end Dalton Schultz helped drive a top-10 passing game last season (and where new running back Joe Mixon could angle for retrospective inclusion on this list). In other words, when Diggs doesn’t get the ball, his presence should create opportunities for others. When he does get the ball, he should be able to do more with it than he did in 2023, when he put up the third-lowest per-catch mark (11.1 yards) of his career. The messiness in Buffalo aside, Diggs accelerated Josh Allen‘s journey into stardom. If he can help reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year C.J. Stroud take another step, he’ll have played a role in shaping the landscape of NFL contenders for a second time.
