    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell has pronounced himself fully healed and 'looks healthy' according to CB Xavier Rhodes, one season after Treadwell battled foot, hamstring and finger injuries. 'He looks healthy. (He's) coming out of his breaks good, moving his weight really well, turning his hips when he needs to turn his hips. Breaking down, not taking too many steps in his break. He?s turned around tremendously,' Rhodes said.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell has been running with the first-team offense in camp and drawn his fair share of praise from coaches and teammates alike. The 2016 first-round pick has work to do with Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen seemingly locked into starting jobs, but the Vikings have room on their offense for a big receiver who can dominate in the red zone. Treadwell could easily surprise and be useful as a WR4 or WR5 in fantasy this season.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell is having a good offseason so far, according to offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Treadwell has been 'on point' from a mental standpoint. He has done well route-running, catching the ball and blocking, too. Shurmur said he's pleased with the progress Treadwell has made from a year ago.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell will be playing behind Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen and will have to fight off Michael Floyd and Jarius Wright for playing time. On top of that, he's in one of the more underwhelming passing offenses in the NFL. The second-year receiver is no more than a late-round flier.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell has reported the run with the first-team offense alongside Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen during OTAs, according to Minneapolis Star Tribune's Matt Vensel.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell is likely getting the nod over Michael Floyd given his experience in Pat Shurmur's system and the fact he is last year's first-round pick. The Vikings obviously want to see Treadwell succeed following his injury-ravaged rookie campaign, but Floyd will get his shot if things don't fall into place for Treadwell in 2017. Dynasty leaguers should hold Treadwell for now, but redraft owners are advised to pass.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell has the basics down but still needs to learn 'some of the subtleties' of playing receiver in the NFL, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell was a non-factor as a rookie. Injuries didn't help, and it sounds like he could need more time to really hit his stride. He is still a valuable piece in dynasty formats, but he is late-round material in redraft leagues.

    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.
