1. Jordan Love should keep leaning on Romeo Doubs

All summer, we heard about the Jordan Love-Romeo Doubs connection. When Love needed a play, he often turned to Doubs. We saw this continue in Week 1, with Doubs catching two touchdown passes from Love.

Doubs didn't play a full-time role due to a hamstring injury that limited him in practice. He may still not be at 100 percent, but the second-year receiver has had an additional week of recovery.

Doubs could lead the Packers in receiving this year. Christian Watson scares defenses the most with his speed, athleticism, and game-changing ability, but Doubs is an ascending player who runs good routes and makes tough catches. He showed off his red-zone ability in Week 1, scoring twice.

Aaron Rodgers built some great connections over the years, from Jordy Nelson to Randall Cobb to Davante Adams. Doubs has a chance to become Love's top target moving forward.

Love leaned on Doubs throughout the offseason. It's clear the two have an excellent connection. If Jones misses the game, the Packers should play to their strengths. That means getting the ball to the receiver Love trusts the most.

And as Doubs proved last week, the Packers can count on him to make plays.
