Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell has caught 10 of the 11 balls that have come his way since Week 5. After an early-season bout with drops, he has solidified himself as the WR3 on the depth chart. The Vikings passing offense has a fantastic matchup in Week 8 against a New Orleans Saints defense that has given up the most fantasy points to wide receivers. Treadwell has an opportunity to get involved as the game is poised to be a shootout. With the Saints keying in on Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, Treadwell may be able to exploit a weak secondary. He is a viable option in the deepest leagues this week.
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell snagged four catches for 38 yards in a 27-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals. The 23-year-old has been quiet to start the season as he tries to carve out a role as the WR3. He caught all four targets that were thrown his way in Week 6, but he remains ineffective for fantasy purposes. There is a bevy of playmakers ahead of Treadwell on the depth chart which makes him a fantasy asset to avoid.
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell had yet another nondescript fantasy day on Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings 23-21 road win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Treadwell hauled in 3-of-4 targets for just 21 yards while seeing 30-of-62 (48%) offensive snaps. Fellow receivers Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs commanded 10 and 11 targets, respectively, and will continue to see the majority of targets moving forward as they've been among the best WR-duo's in the NFL. While he has been the Vikings preferred option in three-wide sets this season, Treadwell's lack of involvement in the offense make him a player best left on the waiver wire until further notice.
