With Jeff Wilson (knee) being ruled out 4-to-6 months, Sermon could jump up the depth chart during training camp. Raheem Mostert and Wilson were assumed to be the 1A/1B combo Shanahan would deploy in 2021, but the news of the latter's surgery opens the door for Sermon to grasp a larger role in this potent offense. The third-round pick has a large frame (6-foot, 215 pounds) and surprising agility for a back his size. If he can secure the backup role behind a fragile starter in Mostert, Sermon could burst onto the fantasy scene if his production in the SEC translates well into the NFL. Today's news certainly raises the back's stock heading into training camp and early fantasy drafts.
