2020 Fantasy Outlook
Sherman returned to his All-Pro form in 2019, finishing with 61 tackles (48 solo), 11 passes defended, three interceptions and a touchdown over 15 regular-season contests. Some of the credit goes to a revamped defensive line that finally was able to apply quick pressure to opposing quarterbacks, but the 32-year-old also said (and looked) to be completely healthy for the first time since rupturing his Achilles tendon back in 2017. Sherman may have lost a step or two as he ventures further north of 30 years old, but he remains one of the league's top cover corners due to his positioning and defensive IQ. Read Past Outlooks

Sherman recorded 61 tackles (48 solo), 11 passes defended, three interceptions and a touchdown in 15 games during the 2019 regular season.
ANALYSIS
Sherman wasn't the same player his first year in San Francisco coming off a torn Achilles tendon, but an additional year of recovery had the corner looking closer to the shutdown version we became accustomed to during his days in Seattle. The 31-year-old suffered a few minor injuries along the way, but he was generally healthy and was only forced to miss one game (including the playoffs). Assuming good health, Sherman will look to turn in another elite season in coverage behind the 49ers' ferocious pass rush.

2013
Sherman had a relatively-healthy return from an Achilles tear last season, starting 14 games for his new club in San Francisco. The 31-year-old did not record an interception for the first time in his career, but that was mainly due to opposing offenses opting to throw the ball to the lesser defensive backs opposite him. Sherman stated that he is feeling even healthier this season after having the stitches removed from his surgery over a year ago, so we could see the closest thing to his prime in 2019.
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.
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.
