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."
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.

For the first half of last season, Randall Cobb might have been the biggest bargain in fantasy football as he scored 10 touchdowns in Green Bay's first nine games. He'll again be a main cog in one of the NFL's best offenses with top quarterback Aaron Rodgers at the trigger.
Oh that second half last season was frustrating. Cobb had just two TD catches after his strong start, and they both came in Week 17, after most championships had been decided. He was still productive - especially in PPR leagues - but if you relied heavily on him in your first half, he hurt you in the second half, when he performed more like a No. 2 or 3 receiver rather than the No. 1 he had been.
I would expect more consistency this season. While the touchdown binge early in the season was kind of fluky, I don't expect him to have just two TDs over a seven-game span again. But Cobb's ADP of 23 might be a little high. With Jordy Nelson gone on the other side, Cobb should have another strong season.
