With the way that Davante Adams has been tearing up secondaries in the NFL over the past few seasons, when he opens his mouth about anything receiver-related, it'd be wise to listen.

And while you may already be thinking that he's referring to himself, it was quite the opposite this week in Adams' case. The Pro-Bowl wide receiver, who has a case to be considered one of the league's top-3 talents, actually had some serious praise for another talent on a completely different team.

Adams was clearly impressed with Kupp's performance in the Los Angeles Rams' 27-24 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football this week, and it's hard to blame him.

Kupp hauled in 11 receptions on 13 targets with 145 yards to show for it in his team's winning effort, bringing his season-long total to 62 receptions for 722 yards and 2 touchdowns thus far. And Adams has a point, especially for a receiver who was a third-round pick but has ascended to his former No. 1 overall pick quarterback Jared Goff's favorite target.

Kupp is also fresh off a career season last year, in which hauled in 94 receptions for 1,161 yards and 10 scores.
