2018 Fantasy Outlook
Once the heart and soul of one of the most-feared defenses of all-time in Seattle, Sherman saw his Seahawks tenure end after his Achilles tendon snapped against Arizona in Week 9. The money-saving release didn't sit well with the 30-year-old, so he took that chip on his shoulder and signed an incentive-laden deal to play with his former team's division rival. This move could be a match made in heaven, as Sherman gets a chance to prove he's still a top-flight corner on a team that has lacked a shutdown corner for at least the past decade.

Expects to play Sunday

Coach Kyle Shanahan expects Sherman (heel) to play Sunday against the Chiefs, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "I expect him to be out there," Shanahan said. "(Sherman) didn't practice yesterday; he's had some wear and tear on his heel. We're taking it smart with him."
ANALYSIS
Sherman was a new addition to the injury report Thursday with the heel issue, but it appears the team is just playing it safe with their veteran cornerback. It wouldn't be surprising for the 30-year-old to take things easy again at Friday's practice, but he should have his usual starting role against WR Tyreek Hill and the explosive Chiefs offense Sunday.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2013
Despite being placed on the trade block amid tensions between him and the Seahawks organization this offseason, Sherman is slated to return for his seventh season in Seattle. He's the top cornerback on the team by a longshot, however, as has happened in the past, he likely won't see many passes thrown his way as opposing offenses pick on the less-experienced defensive backs next to him, leaving the Stanford product without much of an opportunity to rack up counting stats on a game-by-game basis. Overall, just don't get sucked in by Sherman's name-brand appeal; his real-life value as a football player isn't accurately reflected in the fantasy realm.
Sherman played in all 16 games for the fifth consecutive year, racking up 50 tackles, 14 passes defended, and two interceptions throughout the 2015 season. The 28-year-old shutdown corner is more valuable for Seattle than IDP owners, as his lower-than-expected interception numbers reflect his ability to cover opposing receivers to the point that quarterbacks are reluctant to throw his way. He'll lead the way once again in 2016 for what is arguably the league's best secondary.
Sherman will serve as the Seahawks top CB in 2013.
