2020 Summer Sleeper: Detroit Lions

We pick out a Detroit Lion with deep sleeper potential.

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.

By most accounts, the Detroit Lions had a good 2020 NFL Draft - addressing the defensive side of the ball, giving the offense more playmakers, and taking talent where it was needed.

In 2019, the Lions invested heavily in TJ Hockenson, and if he is able to stay healthy, he could provide a huge boost for the offense. Unfortunately he went down due to injury last season and the tight end spot really struggled and needed some help.

That help may have come in the form of a talented player who ended up going undrafted.
