2019 Fantasy Outlook
Witherspoon really struggled in a starting role opposite Richard Sherman last season, as his side of the field was constantly being picked on by opposing offenses. The 23-year-old's shortcomings led to the front office going out and acquiring veteran corner Jason Verrett, who figures to replace Witherspoon in the starting lineup when healthy. With K'waun Williams occupying the slot, Witherspoon could begin the year as a fourth/backup corner after faltering as a starter last year. Read Past Outlooks

Witherspoon (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
As expected, Witherspoon avoided a setback and will gear up for the divisional matchup. This will be his first outing since Week 3, and the third-year pro should slide back into a starting role. Over the first three games, Witherspoon posted nine tackles, five pass breakups and a pick-six.
