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 Chicago Bears offense took a huge step back in 2019, ranking 29th in total offense, just one season after finishing ninth. The quarterback situation is fluid with Nick Foles being brought in via trade to push a struggling Mitchell Trubisky.
The decline in offensive production resulted in an 8-8 finish and disappointment all around Halas Hall, prompting them to send a fourth-round pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars to acquire the aforementioned Foles.
The newly-obtained quarterback has a history with Bears head coach Matt Nagy, as they spent time together in Philadelphia in 2012 and again in Kansas City in 2016.
With change, comes opportunities for new players to get involved in the attack...

Thanks Jeff! I’m loving this series and this may be the best one yet. I had only barely heard of Pierce, but this is convincing me to take a deeper look. I’m a Texans fan and I’m always reminded of when they took Ben Tate to be their RB1 and Arian Foster lit it up as a UDFA. These articles help those late round picks be some kind of quality instead of just dart throws. Thanks again!
Thanks for reading and I am glad you enjoyed it. I hope he pans out. Love the handle by the way.
