January 10, 2022
Sherfield caught his lone target for 13 yards in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Rams.
ANALYSIS
Sherfield was limited to just 10 offensive snaps (14 percent), which was in line with how he was being used all season. The 25-year-old only had one game (Week 13 vs. SEA) where he received more than 50 percent of the offensive snaps. Sherfield showed some promise in the preseason, building a rapport with rookie quarterback, Trey Lance, so there is a chance the 49ers elect to re-sign the unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
An undrafted free agent in 2018, Sherfield ended his rookie year with some decent tape, recording 19 catches (on 28 targets) for 210 yards and one touchdown across the last seven games. That was under a different coaching staff, though. With Kliff Kingsbury calling the shots last season, Sherfield had a spell from Weeks 4-8 as a regular in the offense. Otherwise, he was active every week but primarily contained to special teams. The Cardinals boast a top-heavy receiving corps composed of offseason acquisition DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald. Beyond that trio, second-year wideouts Andy Isabella, Hakeem Butler and KeeSean Johnson likely have the inside track to any lingering snaps, which may make it difficult for Sherfield to land a spot on the 53-man roster.
An undrafted rookie last season, Sherfield worked his way into a Cardinals wide receiver rotation that was deficient in talent beyond Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk. Sherfield especially made an impact after the team's Week 9 bye, going for 7.5 YPT and a 67.9 percent catch rate on 28 targets. With a new coaching staff in town, GM Steve Keim made a point of addressing the position to suit Kliff Kingsbury's system, using draft picks on Andy Isabella, Hakeem Butler and KeeSean Johnson. All three will have learning curves, though, which could give Sherfield a chance to contribute in the early parts of the campaign.
