    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell has the skill set and determination to succeed, according to general manager Rick Spielman, and Spielman said he believes in his heart Treadwell will be a good player for the franchise.

    Huddle Up: Injuries derailed Treadwell's rookie season, but he remains an intriguing prospect in keeper leagues. In redraft leagues in 2017, he is merely a late-round lottery ticket.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell was dogged by lower-body injuries all year long and finished his rookie season with only one catch for 15 yards. Nevertheless, offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur is hopeful the receiver can eventually prove he was worth the No. 23 overall pick last spring. (Treadwell) is going to be like any young player that's going from year one to year two. This is going to be an offseason that is very critical. ? He came in and kind of had little nagging things that kind of kept him from full-time early. ? He did well when he got in the game, he didn't get targeted often, but he blocked well and he competed. That's really the starting point for any young player,' Shurmur said.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell doesn't turn 22 until mid-June, so it is far too early to be overly concerned about his long-term prospects just yet. He dealt with foot, hamstring and ankle injuries throughout the year, which ultimately cost him enough time to build any kind of trust or history with Sam Bradford or Shurmur. With Charles Johnson and Cordarrelle Patterson both set to hit free agency next month, there will be an opportunity for Treadwell to get plenty of reps. For now, however, he is only worth consideration in dynasty leagues.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell made his first career catch against the Detroit Lions in Week 9, and head coach Mike Zimmer said Treadwell has being doing a good job running routes and has shown improved quickness.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell has barely been on the field this year, and barring a huge leap in production, his fantasy value is going to remain limited to keeper leagues.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell did not receive any offensive snaps during the team's Week 1 game. Head coach Mike Zimmer said Treadwell needs to work on some things before receiving playing time.

    Huddle Up: It appears Treadwell could see limited playing time this season unless he improves his play. Owners in deeper leagues should hold onto Treadwell if they have the roster space, but owners on shallow leagues may want to consider dropping him.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell had four catches on five targets for 41 yards in a 17-16 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in the preseason Friday, Aug. 12.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell played primarily with the second-team offense. He was behind Charles Johnson, who scored on a 49-yard touchdown pass. Treadwell has an ADP of Round 7 but he may not even start in Week 1. He's being over-drafted.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell should be the physical, chain-moving receiver that offensive coordinator Norv Turner has been looking for over the last few seasons. Turner was happy with Treadwell's instincts and route running during offseason workouts. Treadwell said the Vikings' offense is similar to the one he played in college, where he was asked to run short and intermediate routes.

    Huddle Up: Under Mike Zimmer the Vikings have done an outstanding job of drafting guys who fit what the team does, or wants to do, and Treadwell is no exception. He'll give Teddy Bridgewater a big target with a large catch radius who will win battles for contested balls. And while the Vikings remain a run-first team, that's a skill set that should earn Treadwell plenty of playing time and maybe even nudge him onto the fantasy radar--especially in TD-heavy scoring systems.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell performed well with the second-team offense during spring workouts, and beat writer Matt Vensel believes Treadwell will be a starter in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: That's been the plan since selecting Treadwell in the first round as the Vikes have been trying to make do with too many disappointing under-performing WRs (Greg Jennings, Charles Johnson, Cordarrelle Patterson) in recent seasons.

    Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has been impressed with WR Laquon Treadwell, the Vikings' first-round draft pick this year. 'He's been here with us for two days now, and he's been looking good,' Bridgewater added. 'I'm not qualified to judge players and things like that, but from what I've been seeing, I've been pretty impressed.'

    Huddle Up: It's hard to find a bad word said about a rookie at this time of year, but the Vikes' first-round pick is definitely one of the few with the talent, potential and opportunity to live up to the hype and bring immediate dividends to the Minnesota passing attack.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell signed his four-year rookie contract, including a fifth-year option Thursday, May 12.

    Huddle Up: The Ole Miss standout was the fourth wide receiver selected in the first round, but he will challenge the Browns' Corey Coleman for the title of rookie wideout who has the best opportunity to make the most immediate fantasy impact. Getting his contract signed early only enhances his chances.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell is expected to step in and become the team's go-to receiver. He is expected to serve in a major role this season, and he was drafted in part because he already excels in some of the routes the team frequently uses.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell's skill set is a fit with what the Vikings need at receiver. This is still Adrian Peterson's offense, so Treadwell's immediate fantasy upside is limited, but there is plenty of long- term potential as well as the prospect of Treadwell becoming a solid touchdown producer in the red zone.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell adds a physicality dimension and the ability to grab jump balls, according to Vikings general manager Rick Spielman. 'As we sat there and talked with the coaches, the biggest thing is the catching radius, the ability to catch in traffic, to go up and get jump balls and the physicality of him as a receiver, getting in and out of his cuts,' Spielman said. 'You can just see he generates a lot of power when he's getting off the line of scrimmage. I could put a highlight reel together, and I know Adrian Peterson's going to be very excited how this guy plays the game and blocks at the edge, but he's a receiver that just plays with a chip on his shoulder in all phases of the game.'

    Huddle Up: The rookie gives Teddy Bridgewater a big target he's lacked in his two seasons, and he figures to be a strong complement to Stefon Diggs and Jarius Wright.

    Mississippi WR Laquon Treadwell ran unofficial times of 4.65 seconds and 4.63 seconds at Mississippi's pro day Monday, March 28.

    Huddle Up: While slower than many of his positional colleagues, this time should come as no surprise to anyone who's seen Treadwell play. He's not a burner, yet he still gets separation and makes plays down the field. That 40 time might scare off a top-10 team who figures they can get a faster (though perhaps less effective) receiver in a later round, but Treadwell is still the most likely candidate to be the first wide receiver off the draft board.
