Laquon Treadwell: Lands on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell was placed on the practice squad COVID-19 list Tuesday, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The 2016 first-rounder will be away from the Falcons' facility for at least five days. With Treadwell now on the COVID list, the Falcons are signing linebacker James Carlock to their practice squad.

Laquon Treadwell: Officially joins practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell officially signed with the Falcons' practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Treadwell's move to join Atlanta's practice squad was announced Monday, but he's only now officially passed requisite COVID-19 testing. The 2016 first-round pick spent training camp with the team and reportedly struggled to overcome drop issues, but the Falcons at least saw enough out of Treadwell to continue monitoring his development.

Laquon Treadwell: Joining Falcons' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell was added to Atlanta's practice squad Monday, pending the passing of COVID-19 testing, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The 2016 first-round pick was unable to make Atlanta's 53-man roster, as the team instead elected to utilize Christian Blake, Olamide Zaccheaus, and Brandon Powell as depth options at wide receiver. With just one career kick return to his name, Treadwell perhaps does not offer equal special-teams upside as Powell or Zaccheaus. Struggles with drops during training camp did not help Treadwell's case for a roster spot, either, thus landing him in a reserve role to begin 2020.

Laquon Treadwell: Let go by Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons have released Treadwell, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

As a 2016 first-rounder, Treadwell carries name recognition, but his production with the Vikings last year was modest and he wasn't able to stick with the Falcons this time around. He'll look to catch on as a depth option elsewhere, but he's off the fantasy radar these days.

Falcons' Laquon Treadwell: Bad case of the drops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell has struggled with drops thus far in training camp, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Dropped passes may be more forgivable errors to coaches than fumbles at least, but this update certainly does not bode well for Treadwell's bid to unseat Gage for the No. 3 receiver role. This trend is unfortunately not a new one for Treadwell, as he owns an astronomical drop rate of 10.1 percent over the past two seasons. It seems that Gage's status as the No. 3 option only grows more secure with this in mind, while Olamide Zaccheaus and Jalen McCleskey each have an opportunity to move up should Treadwell's struggles persist.

Falcons' Laquon Treadwell: Heading to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell signed a one-year contract with the Falcons on Sunday, Zach Klein of WSB-TV reports.

Treadwell hasn't lived up to his draft status as a first-round pick of the Vikings in 2016, but perhaps a change of scenery will help him take flight in Atlanta. Expectations should be tempered, as Treadwell will have a hard time carving out a major role in a deep receiving corps headlined by Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Another rocky season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell recorded nine receptions for 184 yards and a touchdown over 13 regular-season games in 2019.

Treadwell didn't make the team out of training camp, but he rejoined the Vikings before Week 4 and played the remainder of the team's regular-season slate. The 2016 first-round pick logged more than 20 offensive snaps on just one occasion, which came in Week 17 when the team rested its starters. Treadwell was then a healthy inactive for the first playoff game before suiting up and logging just three snaps in Saturday's divisional-round loss to the 49ers. Treadwell will be an unrestricted free agent this spring, and even if he re-ups with the Vikings, he'll be far from a lock to make the roster.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Won't face Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell (coach's decision) is a healthy scratch for Sunday's playoff bout in New Orleans.

Treadwell hasn't recorded a catch since Week 14 of the regular season, and his role in Minnesota's offense now appears to have been marginalized with Adam Thielen back in action. Alexander Hollins will work as the No. 4 wideout in his stead.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Two receptions Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell had two receptions for 42 yards on two targets in Sunday's win over Detroit.

Treadwell continues to be a factor in the offense with Adam Thielen sidelined with a hamstring injury. He was productive in limited playing time (17 snaps on offense) a week after a 58-yard touchdown reception. He may not get many targets the rest of the season, especially when Thielen returns, but the oft-maligned 2016 first-round pick may have revived his career.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Gets loose for long TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell secured one of two targets for a 58-yard touchdown in the Vikings' 37-30 loss to the Seahawks on Monday.

The oft-maligned 2016 first-round pick was able to garner only his second career touchdown thanks to busted coverage down the right sideline in the fourth quarter. Treadwell's two best performances of the year have come since Adam Thielen (hamstring) initially got hurt, but that still hasn't amounted to much -- he has only six catches on 10 targets for 127 yards over the last six games. Treadwell could have a minor role in the passing game once again in Week 14 against the Lions if Thielen misses a fourth consecutive contest.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: No receptions Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell did not have a reception and was targeted just once in Sunday's win over Denver.

Treadwell played just seven snaps on offense, as he's moved back to a deep reserve role after a surprising output in Week 9 with three receptions and five targets. He may not be active on game days if Adam Thielen returns from a hamstring injury after next week's bye.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: More limited role Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell had one reception for ten yards on his only target in Sunday's win at Dallas.

After getting five targets and playing 19 snaps in the prior week's loss at Kansas City, Treadwell had a more limited role with just 12 snaps on offense. Bisi Johnson (52 snaps) is clearly the No. 2 receiver with Adam Thielen sidelined with a hamstring injury, leaving Treadwell to a more limited role where he's mostly blocking (he blocked on six snaps) despite his surprise output in Week 9.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Planning for role on offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell hopes to have a role on offense Sunday in Dallas, Chris Tomasson of The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Treadwell took full advantage of his 19 snaps in last week's 26-23 loss to the Chiefs, catching three of five targets for 58 yards after Adam Thielen (hamstring) suffered an in-game setback. With Thielen now ruled out for the upcoming game, Treadwell likely will serve as the No. 3 receiver behind Stefon Diggs and Bisi Johnson. The first-round bust hopes to make enough of an impression to stick on the Vikings' roster long term, having previously been released Aug. 31.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Surprising team receiving leader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell secured three of five targets for 58 yards in the Vikings' 26-23 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Treadwell was the surprising leader in both receptions and receiving yardage in the loss, a shocking development even with Adam Thielen (hamstring) exiting the game late in the first half. The 24-year-old wideout only had two receptions for 16 yards on the season coming in, so Sunday's surge, modest as it was, certainly was unexpected. Treadwell could have another solid allotment of opportunity against the Cowboys in Week 10 if Thielen is forced to sit out.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Increased role with Thielen out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell will serve as the No. 3 receiver with Adam Thielen (hamstring) ruled out, Paul Hodowanic of the Pioneer Press reports.

Treadwell struggled to find his footing with the Vikings for three years after they selected him 23rd overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, and the team cut him Aug. 31. He was brought back in late September, and now he'll finally get back into a starting role. Fantasy gamers should understand by now that Treadwell's upside is limited, however, as he posted just 35 receptions for 302 yards and a score over 15 games last year.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Has one reception Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell had one reception for 15 yards on his only target in Sunday's win over the Eagles.

Treadwell played just seven snaps on offense and went out on a pass rout just once, according to Pro Football Focus, so don't get too excited. He's mostly in the game to be a blocker and is clearly behind Olabisi Johnson for the No. 3 receiver role.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Reunites with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell agreed to a contract Tuesday with the Vikings, Courtney Cronin of reports.

A first-round selection by Minnesota in 2016, Treadwell tallied just 56 catches over his three seasons with the club before he was cut by the team Aug. 31. With No. 3 receiver Chad Beebe (ankle) likely to miss Sunday's game against the Bears and potentially more time beyond that, however, Treadwell will get a second chance with Minnesota. Treadwell's familiarity with the organization means he won't need much time to get up to speed with the offense, but it's not a given that he'll immediately step into Beebe's role as the team's third wideout. Rookie Bisi Johnson also lingers as a potential option to step in for Beebe behind starters Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.

Laquon Treadwell: Visiting Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell worked out for the Lions on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Treadwell visited with the Bills earlier this week but left without a contract. The 2016 first-round pick was cut by the Vikings this offseason and is looking to revitalize his career after an unimpressive start. If Treadwell were indeed to latch on with the Lions, he'd likely have to content himself with a depth role behind Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola.

Laquon Treadwell: Checking out Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell visited with the Bills on Tuesday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

Treadwell -- a 2016 first-round pick -- had an underwhelming start to his career with just 56 catches for 517 yards and a touchdown through his first three seasons with the Vikings. The team understandably cut him this offseason. Now, Treadwell is looking for a fresh start, and the 24-year-old still has enough time to make a turnaround. However, he doesn't have elite athleticism -- he ran a 4.64 second 40-yard dash and recorded a 33-inch vertical -- and he'd likely have to settle for a depth role even on the Bills.

Laquon Treadwell: Cut by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell was cut by Minnesota.

The 2016 first-round draft pick caught just 56 passes for 517 yards and two touchdowns in three seasons. He seemed set to be jettisoned when the Vikings didn't pick up the fifth-year option in his rookie contract. He may have a hard time catching on with another NFL team or even a practice squad given his struggles.
