Few can complain about the Green Bay Packers' performance in the season opener. They outplayed the Chicago Bears in all three phases, Jordan Love impressed, and the defense dominated.

The exciting part? This is just the beginning for a young Packers team, and many key contributors either didn't play or were limited. The offense put up 31 points without Christian Watson. Imagine their potential when he returns from injury.

Green Bay enters Week 2 with some injury concerns. Watson and Aaron Jones are among the starters who could miss the game. To beat the Atlanta Falcons, the Packers need to give these three players more snaps.

3. Romeo Doubs

Romeo Doubs played a little under half of the Packers' offensive snaps against the Bears, which is understandable, as he had just returned from a hamstring injury. If anything, he played more than expected.

Even in a limited role, Doubs made a significant impact on the game, catching two touchdown passes from Jordan Love, once again highlighting their chemistry.

Doubs practiced in full on Friday, a good indication he is much closer to 100 percent this week. As a result, more snaps should come his way, especially if the Packers are without Christian Watson and Aaron Jones. Doubs is one of Love's most trusted targets, and he made plays when the Packers needed them in Week 1.
