One of the interesting sleeper names to monitor this season is the 6th-round rookie receiver in Chicago, Dazz Newsome. Newsome's skillset was worthy of a 3rd-round pick, but he fell much further in the draft than I was anticipating due to poor testing numbers. Don't get it wrong though, this kid can play and he could become the starting slot receiver for the Bears sooner than later. Anthony Miller has lost the coaching staff's trust and Justin Fields has already developed a rapport with Newsome. He might not start out the season as the starting slot receiver, but keep an eye on Newsome on the waiver wire as we move throughout the year. He could be a solid pickup for your roster.

Dazz Newsome (collarbone) suffers broken collarbone in practice Tuesday

Chicago Bears rookie WR Dazz Newsome (collarbone) suffered a broken collarbone in practice on Tuesday and will undergo surgery on Thursday, per Tom Pelissero.

Fantasy Impact

Newsome suffered a clean break on his collarbone, which means he will undergo surgery and be available to return in eight weeks. This timeline will allow the sixth-round rookie wideout to return by the time Bears' training camp starts. Newsome recorded 188 receptions for 2,435 yards and 20 total touchdowns across the four seasons he played at the University of North Carolina. Newsome will have the chance to compete for a role as Chicago's second or third slot receiver behind Damiere Byrd and Anthony Miller.
