Cobb: Davante Adams 'poised for breakout year'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Add Randall Cobb to the list of people who expect big things from Davante Adams this year.

And he says he felt that way even before the Green Bay Packers lost Pro Bowl receiver Jordy Nelson to a season-ending knee injury this week.

Without Nelson, the 25-year-old Cobb becomes the senior member of the receiving corps in just his fifth NFL season, and the 22-year-old Adams moves into the No. 2 role in just his second season.

"He's poised for a breakout year," Cobb said Tuesday. "He's poised for a big year. I look forward to helping him accomplish that."

Fantasy Impact: 

Perhaps the good news is Cobb said he sensed that since the end of last season, when Adams finished off his rookie season with eight catches for 124 yards and a touchdown in the playoffs - seven of those catches, 117 of those yards and the touchdown came in the win over the Cowboys in the divisional round. Sounds like Cobb expected big things from Adams before Nelson's injury. We do too and have him ranked 18th on our WR list.
