In our annual 32-part Summer Sleeper series, DLF scribes identify a lightly-touted player on each NFL roster who may be worthy of your consideration. Our subjects all have varying levels of “sleeperness,” but each merits a bit of in-depth discussion here in the Premium Content section.
To help everybody along, we are going to be categorizing our sleepers under one of three headings:
Super Deep Sleepers – Players who aren’t roster-worthy in 12-team leagues, but are still worth keeping an eye on.
Deep Sleepers – An end of the roster player who is more often than not on the waiver wire in 12-team leagues.
Sleeper – A likely rostered player who makes for a good trade target. Their startup ADP puts them out of the top-175 or so.
Because we aren’t going to give you the likes of mainstream sleepers, most of these players will undoubtedly fizzle. All we are asking is for you to keep an open mind and perhaps be willing to make room for one of these players on your bench. You never know when the next Adam Thielen is going to spring up. Feel free to add your own thoughts about our choice for the designated sleeper, or nominate one of your own in the comments below.
The Tennessee Titans turned everything around in week seven of last season. After a woeful 2-4 start to the season and fresh off an offensive donut performance (a 16-0 loss against the Denver Broncos), a quarterback change was necessary. From week seven onwards to the AFC championship game, Ryan Tannehill took over and led one of the most efficient offenses in the league.
With Tannehill and Derrick Henry signing long term extensions, AJ Brown rising in the dynasty world as an up-and-coming superstar, and many sharp analysts on tight end Jonnu Smith to break out, there are few question marks for this team heading into 2020. For this summer sleeper series, I could opt to go with a promising rookie running back: Darrynton Evans. But, with a focused article on the rookie on DLF just recently, we’ll look elsewhere in this Summer Sleeper series edition.
Dynasty players everywhere, it’s the moment you all have(n’t) been waiting for. That’s right, an article focused on your (least) favorite former dynasty 1.01 in rookie drafts. You know him, you (hate) love him, please put your hands together for…
