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.

Finishes season healthy
CBSan Francisco 49ers
January 24, 2019
Sherman finished his first season in San Francisco with 37 tackles (30 solo), a sack and no interceptions.
ANALYSIS
Sherman missed two games with a combination of minor injuries, but he finished the campaign with a clean bill of health coming off of an Achilles' tear that cut his 2017 season short and ultimately led to an abrupt departure from Seattle. The 30-year-old did not record an interception for the first time in his eight-year career, but that was due in large part to opposing offenses opting to throw away from the side of the field he lined up on. The veteran can no longer keep up with the Tyreek Hills of the world, but he proved that his technique and ability to lock down short and intermediate routes is as good as ever. Sherman will serve as the 49ers' top corner and vocal leader on defense heading into the 2019 season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
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.
