Matt Waldman's RSP NFL Lens #LaquonTreadwell Thread

Fit in the #Vikings offense and where there's opportunity for growth in 2018.

#skol #NFL
#LaquonTreadwell isn't a speedster, but he's quick enough and he will work with his quarterback. Here's where his tape is a little more refined that a big guy like #KennyGolladay.
Unlike a receiver like #KennyGolladay, #LaquonTreadwell's game is suited to moving the chains.

He could benefit from clear-outs by his teammates but isn't used that way.

They have him work flats where his length is an asset as a substitute to the ground game.
Against a quality athlete at CB like #JimmySmith, #LaquonTreadwell displays good quickness and sharp break. However, the quickness and size aren't enough to get him free from more physical NFL DBs.
#LaquonTreadwell's route fundamentals are advanced enough that he can tell a good that he knows the details of the offense, we should see more of this come into play in #Minnesota
This is where the #Vikings have not exploited the strength of #LaquonTreadwell's game.

If Treadwell can execute the details of the offense to be a regular part of the rotation and #KirkCousins learns to trust him, Treadwell can offer what Diggs/Thielen won't. #Skol #Vikings
If #KirkCousins and #LaquonTreadwell can develop that tight-window trust and rapport, Treadwell will earn mismatches in his favor.

Will he be a strong fantasy asset? Not as the No.3 option, but he's still worth late consideration and a deep roster hold in dynasty leagues. #Skol
