A preseason darling, Romeo Doubs finally broke out in a big way in the Packers' Week 3 triumph over of the Buccaneers. The rookie caught all eight of his targets for 73 yards and his first career touchdown reception.

With Green Bay not featuring a standout player at WR, just how antsy should fantasy football managers be to add Doubs?

Our experts weigh in below on whether you should go out of your way to roster him.

Sean Koerner: Doubs is proving why he should have been a high-upside WR stash to begin the season. It took him a few games to get going, but he is clearly taking over the Davante Adams role in this offense.

No, I am not suggesting that he is even remotely close to being the caliber of player Adams is, or will ever be. But Aaron Rodgers has to throw to someone, and that is clearly Doubs right now.

He has a solid 22.2% target per route run rate on the season, so once his playing time went up from around 55% after 2 games, up to 94% in Week 3, the breakout party was bound to happen against the Bucs.

He opens the week as my WR35 and has room to grow.

Samantha Previte: Doubs made it into thelookahead waiver article with multiple Green Bay receivers popping up on the injury report. Rookie Christian Watson and veteran Sammy Watkins both sat out the Packers' Week 3 contest against the Buccaneers with hamstring injuries and opened up an opportunity for Dobbs to break out.

Dobbs was likely dropped in a number of leagues after a disappointing start to the season. I would scoop him up in any league if he's available, especially with the chemistry brewing between him and four-time MVP Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers have a friendly stretch of games coming up, which could lead to more big performances from Doubs.

Chris Raybon: Doubs needs to be rostered in all leagues. Before the season, I said Doubs had a legit path to being the Packers' WR1. Through three weeks, it appears he has arrived, as the fourth-round rookie leads the team in targets (16), catches (14) and yards (137). 

With Sammy Watkins (hamstring) on IR, it appears the team has settled on a starting group of Doubs, Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb, with Christian Watson as a big-play/gadget WR4. The key for Doubs is that he leads Packers WRs with a target rate of 22% per route, which means he gets open the most.
