Rodgers: "Wow play" from rookie WR Romeo Doubs "every single day"

While speaking with reporters on Thursday, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said "every single day" rookie wide receiver Romeo Doubs has made at least one "wow play" according to Peter Bukowski of The Leap.

Rodgers went on to say "that's kind of rare for a young guy like that. Now we've had some young guys over the years kind of do that but you know they're all in the top 10... in Packers receiving history." Rodgers did note that Doubs has had some mental mistakes, "but you expect those."  With fellow rookie Christian Watson out with a knee injury and veteran Sammy Watkins out of practice over the last few days, the fourth-round pick out of Nevada has had more opportunities to get first-team reps and he has thus far made the most of them.

One note of caution is that even Packers greats that Rodgers was hinting at like Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams did not have much of an impact in their rookie seasons. However, with a wide-open receiver depth chart in Green Bay, Doubs has a legitimate chance to emerge as a fantasy-relevant rookie.
