Vikings | Laquon Treadwell a physical receiver

Mon, 02 May 2016 23:40:50 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell adds a physicality dimension and the ability to grab jump balls, according to Vikings general manager Rick Spielman.

"As we sat there and talked with the coaches, the biggest thing is the catching radius, the ability to catch in traffic, to go up and get jump balls and the physicality of him as a receiver, getting in and out of his cuts," Spielman said. "You can just see he generates a lot of power when he's getting off the line of scrimmage. I could put a highlight reel together, and I know Adrian Peterson's going to be very excited how this guy plays the game and blocks at the edge, but he's a receiver that just plays with a chip on his shoulder in all phases of the game."

Fantasy Tip: Treadwell should have a chance to contribute immediately. Teddy Bridgewater is known to be an accurate passer that hasn't had a lot to throw to. Treadwell isn't a burner, but he could be a solid possession receiver. He'll be an option at WR4.

Vikings | Moritz Boehringer agrees to deal

Mon, 02 May 2016 19:15:03 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings signed WR Moritz Boehringer to a contract Monday, May 2. The sixth-round pick is the first selection from the 2016 NFL draft to sign a deal.

Fantasy Tip: Boehringer is the first ever player selected directly from Europe. If he does make the team, he isn't likely to make a fantasy impact. However, it will be interesting to see if he develops into a solid NFL receiver.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson's option declined

Mon, 02 May 2016 10:32:17 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson's fifth-year option was declined by the Vikings Monday, May 2, according to a league source. Patterson caught only two passes in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson has a ton of athletic ability, but it hasn't translated onto the field in the Vikings offense. After the Vikes spent a first-round pick on Laquon Treadwell, Patterson is pushed further down the depth chart. Patterson has contributed much more on special teams, and he isn't worth spending a late-round flier on in traditional fantasy drafts.

Vikings | Willie Beavers to be used at guard

Sun, 01 May 2016 09:51:42 -0700

Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said OG Willie Beavers, who was selected in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft, will be tried at guard first, even though he spent most of the 2015 season at Western Michigan as a left tackle. Beavers' first experience playing guard came in the Senior Bowl in January.

Vikings | T.J. Clemmings moving to left tackle

Sun, 01 May 2016 09:47:46 -0700

Minnesota Vikings OT T.J. Clemmings, who started all 16 games at right tackle last season, will move to left tackle to serve as the backup to OT Matt Kalil, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Kalil is entering the final year of his contract and the team had a logjam at right tackle due to the free-agent signing of OT Andre Smith and the return of OT Phil Loadholt, who missed the entire 2015 season with a torn Achilles' tendon.

Vikings | Laquon Treadwell lands with Vikes

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 19:46:43 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings selected Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell with the 23rd overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft on Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Teddy Bridgewater gets a new toy in Treadwell. He could immediately become a possession receiver for the Vikings, a team that doesn't take many deep shots down the field. He's not the quickest wideout, and he'll need to stay disciplined in his route running to be special. Consider Treadwell as a late flier in deeper point-per-reception leagues for WR depth.
