Green Bay Packers wideout Davante Adams is respected as one of the best at his position. There's another rising talent in the NFC North, though, in the form of Minnesota Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson.

These two prolific pass-catchers will meet in Week 11, and Adams weighed in on his counterpart before their matchup.

Adams was nothing but complimentary of the young Viking. He called back to the impression Jefferson left on him as a rookie, and he thinks the Minnesota standout is even better now.

"Last year, he already looked like he'd been playing for four years at that point, so he's kind of aging like a dog right now and I mean in its purest form because he's a dog out there and I respect what he's doing and it's really fun to watch."

Jefferson made waves in his first year, hauling in 88 catches for 1,400 yards and 7 TDs. He actually out-gained Adams in yards (1,374), though the latter also recorded 115 receptions and a league-leading 18 scores en route to a First Team All-Pro nod.

The Vikings' WR1 will look to have more success against the Packers in this go around. He totaled just 5 receptions for 52 yards in two games against them last year.

Green Bay is a slight 1.5-point road favorite in this matchup, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
