No. 3 Laquon Treadwell vs Arizona
Laquon Treadwell is going to get there, eventuallly. I believe that! Watching him at Ole Miss, I didn’t expect such a slow start to his career. The 23rd pick from 2016 caught his first receiving touchdown this year, in his third year. To be fair he only played in nine games in 2016 but in 2017 played all 16.
Now in his third season, Treadwell has already nearly surpassed both his receptions and receiving yards for the entirety of 2017. Not bad. What we haven’t seen yet, and something the Vikings could use, is a breakout game from the wideout. Diggs is still Diggs, even with how much he’s covered these days. The Vikings have Thielen, who may be producing better than any wide receiver in the league right now. Who could compliment that best? Laquon Treadwell.
Arizona’s pass defense has been tough but a lot of that will go towards Diggs and Thielen. I like Treadwell in this matchup especially with a win that Minnesota not only expects but needs right now. The North is an interesting division to say the least.
