WR - ATL
Week 13 Outlook
Treadwell was signed to the Falcons' practice squad on Wednesday after he failed to make their 53-man roster during training camp.
The former 2016 first-round wide receiver has disappointed during his stint in the NFL, unable to create separation from defenders and failing to improve on dropped passes. Atlanta will bring Treadwell back in a reserve role, as he has the size and athleticism to fit into the Falcons' pass-centric offense. Keep him on fantasy waiver wires until further notice.
Former first-round WR Laquon Treadwell has been cut by the Atlanta Falcons.
Treadwell was beat out by Olamide Zaccheaus for the WR4 spot behind Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, and Russell Gage. He hasn’t lived up to the hype that surrounded him coming out of Mississippi in 2016. Treadwell has just 65 career catches for 701 yards and two scores.
Adam Schefter is reporting that the Atlanta Falcons are going to sign free agent wide receiver Laquon Treadwell.
Treadwell has not lived up to his first-round draft status. He was drafted 23rd overall by the Vikings in the 2016 NFL draft. Treadwell has been an after thought with the Vikings, as he was their fifth option in the passing game. The Falcons are already loaded at receiver with Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley. If Treadwell were to contribute, he would be useful in the red zone. He may help fill the void left by the departure of Austin Hooper. Treadwell is worth a speculative add in deep dynasty leagues if you have space available.
Laquon Treadwell brought in both of his targets for 42 yards in the Vikings’ 20-7 win over the Lions on Sunday.
Treadwell finished second to only Stefon Diggs (92) in receiving yards Sunday, though his two targets weren't encouraging. Treadwell has been a big-play dependent option all year, and he doesn't warrant fantasy consideration outside of very deep leagues.
Laquon Treadwell caught one of two targets for a 58-yard TD in the Vikings’ 37-30 loss to the Seahawks on Monday.
Treadwell brought in his first touchdown of the year on a 58-yarder, recording no more catches in the game. He's produced a 1/10 receiving line over his last two games, and one long touchdown won't put him on the fantasy radar.
