RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
