WR - FA
Week 5 Outlook
Laquon Treadwell has been released from the Patriots practice squad.
Treadwell was added to the Patriots practice squad on 9/5. The former first-round pick has 1184 yards and 5 TDs since 2016.
According to Pro Football Network's Aaron Wilson, WR Laquon Treadwell is signing with the New England Patriots to their practice squad.
The former first-rounder had the most productive year of his six-year NFL career in 2021 with the Jacksonville Jaguars as the team dealt with injuries. Treadwell caught 33 passes for 434 yards and a touchdown across 12 games, starting seven. Despite this, he likely won't see much playing time with the number of bodies the Patriots likely have ahead of him on the depth chart.
Laquon Treadwell was released by Jacksonville Monday.
Treadwell registered 33 receptions for 434 yards and one touchdown in 2021 with Jacksonville. With a new coaching staff in place, the team decided to move on from Treadwell Monday. The former first-rounder is unlikely to be fantasy viable this season.
Laquon Treadwell caught 2-of-6 targets for 14 yards and a touchdown in Jacksonville’s 28-12 preseason loss in Atlanta on Saturday.
The wide receiver room is pretty crowded in Jacksonville with Christian Kirk, Marvin Jones Jr., and Zay Jones all set as the starters but Treadwell’s veteran leadership could make him a leader. Treadwell could also see time as the WR4 as Laviska Shenault Jr. has shown little to nothing this preseason. Treadwell could be an interesting touchdown-dependant late-round flier in deeper leagues.
Laquon Treadwell caught 1-of-2 targets for seven yards in Jacksonville’s 16-15 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Treadwell spent most of last season on Jacksonville’s practice squad, a sharp fall for the former first-round pick. Fantasy managers would have liked to have seen Treadwell do more this preseason, especially Saturday night to earn more playing time in new coach Doug Pederson’s offense. As it stands, he has Christian Kirk, Marvin Jones Jr., Zay Jones, and Laviska Shenault Jr. ahead of him and will likely struggle to see the field. Treadwell is best left to be another manager’s draft day mistake or hit the waiver wire. His first-round pedigree warrants keeping an eye on how he fits into this new look Jags offense before completely forgetting about him this season as he still has a chance to compete.
