2020 Summer Sleeper: San Francisco 49ers

Who is the best dynasty sleeper candidate on the San Francisco 49ers’ roster?

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 San Francisco 49ers -- NFC Champions and the personal favorite of yours truly -- had a tremendous season last year, posting a 13-3 record and taking a division by stopping the Seattle Seahawks just inches shy of the goal line in the waning seconds of the final game of the regular season. This team is looking to rebound after blowing a ten-point lead in the fourth quarter to lose the Super Bowl. Things mostly stayed the same in the off-season for the 49ers. Left tackle Joe Staley retired, but the 49ers managed to replace him with a trade to the Washington Football Team in exchange for Trent Williams, who will fill in immediately at one of the tackle positions. The team traded away defensive tackle DeForest Buckner to the Colts for a first-round pick. This position was immediately filled by the selection of stand-out DT Javon Kinlaw out of South Carolina with said pick. The defensive unit looks to regain its supremacy in 2020. They lost Emmanuel Sanders to free agency, and perhaps even Deebo Samuel for some of the early part of the season due to a broken foot he suffered while training back in mid-June. These two players were keystone receivers for the 2019 season. This leads me to announce who I feel is the best value prior to the start of the 2020 campaign...
