Fantasy Football People! What’s going on? More and more Fantasy Football analysts are talking up the Minnesota Vikings offense as a place to go for Fantasy Football production in 2017. Sounds weird considering they were in the bottom half of the league in points scored in 2016. With further investigation, it looks as if it’s safe to say they maybe on to something. The Vikings took steps to improve their offensive line in the offseason. Their second round draft pick, Dalvin Cook, will be a Fantasy Football stud. Healthy seasons from Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen can make both WRs Top 30 Fantasy Football producers at the receiver position. Kyle Rudolph finally showed up last season, putting up TE 1 numbers. So, I get it. The Vikings will be better offensively.
With all these good things happening for the Vikings’ offense, guess who has been the talk of OTAs and Mini Camp? That stiff, Laquon Treadwell. The rookie could barely get on the field last season due to foot and ankle injuries. Well, so far this offseason things have changed. Treadwell is taking first team reps in three receiver sets and looks more comfortable in the offense. It will be interesting to see if this talk keeps up when they put on the pads. Fantasy Football owners drafting right now can put a dollar on Treadwell extremely late in the draft. I have done so myself in a few leagues.
