2018 Fantasy Outlook
Plenty of opportunities have come Treadwell's way over the past two seasons, but the 2016 first-rounder simply hasn't capitalized. He doesn't have many excuses, either, considering both Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have blossomed in the same circumstances over the same time frame. The offseason signing of Kendall Wright could push Treadwell to No. 4 on the depth chart and makes his path to playing time increasingly dependent on injuries to the trio slotted above him.

Small improvements in third season
WRMinnesota Vikings
January 4, 2019
Treadwell caught one of two targets for seven yards during Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Bears.
ANALYSIS
Treadwell finishes up the season with 35 catches for 302 yards and one touchdown -- all career highs. The former 2016 first-round pick hasn't come close to living up to his draft capital, but it's somewhat encouraging that Treadwell managed to slightly improve in 2018, though it shouldn't be forgotten that the 23-year-old's lack of production led to Aldrick Robinson and Chad Beebe passing him on the depth chart. With one more year left on his rookie contract, Treadwell will remain a developmental project for the Vikings in 2019.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Taken with the 23rd pick in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Treadwell had expectations to contribute immediately within a below-average receiving corps. However, as Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen emerged to eventually notch over 900 receiving yards a piece, Treadwell saw his snap count severely limited, while a few minor injuries also hurt his development. Throughout nine games of action, he caught just one pass for 15 yards on three targets during an extremely disappointing rookie campaign. Improvements with his route running could result in a more positive outlook for Treadwell as he attempts to remove his name from the “bust” spotlight this season, and he's been given first-team reps already during OTAs. In free agency the Vikings signed fellow wideout Michael Floyd, who has proven himself as an NFL-level talent for years, but Treadwell seems to have a head start on the competition for the No. 3 spot right now.
On the one hand, the 23rd overall pick in the draft landed in a spot where he could contribute right away. On the other, the Vikings attempted the fewest passes in the league last year, and Teddy Bridgewater is evolving into more of a game manager than gunslinger. At 6-2, 221, Treadwell has excellent size, but his 4.64 40 time is slow even for a big receiver. Moreover, his broad jump (117 inches) and vertical (33 inches) are also below average. Treadwell seems to play faster on tape, however, and he's a smooth and polished receiver for his age. In any event, he should get a shot right away - last year's fifth-round pick Stefon Diggs, who disappeared during the season's second half, sits atop the depth chart and neither he nor anyone else on the roster should block Treadwell from getting snaps.
