Vikings Beat: Laquon Treadwell has stronghold on WR3 spot

I won’t rule WR Rodney Adams out of earning this role at some point this season with the Vikings, but I wouldn’t make him the favorite for the third receiver.

Laquon Treadwell has done nothing but impress since the offseason program began and I think he’s got a stronghold on the No. 3 spot.

I also wouldn’t count out Michael Floyd as the receiver who sees the third most snaps and/or targets by the time we get to the home stretch of the regular season. A big opportunity for Adams will be on special teams, where the kickoff return role is an open competition heading into training camp.

Related players: Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen

Fantasy Impact: 

Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen look to have the top two spots while some talented players battle it out for the third spot. Treadwell, of course, was a first round pick in 2016 so one would think the Vikings would love to see more production from him this season.
