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 Panthers have undergone massive changes since the 2019 season, moving on from longtime coach Ron Riviera as well as their franchise quarterback since 2011, Cam Newton. Matt Rhule turned around Temple and then Baylor at the college level and he is the new head man in Carolina. New offensive coordinator Joe Brady was one of the archetypes of the LSU offense in 2019, the most proficient offense in college football history. And steady veteran Teddy Bridgewater was signed to be the new signal-caller. Carolina ranked 20th in points and 19th in yards gained offensively with terrible quarterback play as Newton missed 14 games. The offense will be a focus in 2020 with the addition of Rhule and Brady as well as three new offensive linemen. Second-year wideout DJ Moore managed to rake in 87 catches for nearly 1,200 yards. Superstar Christian McCaffrey rushed for 1,387 yards and caught 116 passes for another 1,005 yards. He accounted for 403 touches, 2,392 yards, and 19 touchdowns. He has over 900 touches in three seasons and the offense runs through McCaffrey. If something were to happen to the young back, his handcuff becomes an invaluable asset...
