Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Sticks mostly to special teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield had five receptions (on seven targets) for 50 yards in 15 contests during the 2020 season. He also compiled nine tackles (six solo) and two fumble recoveries.

As one of the Cardinals' core special teamers, Sherfield logged nearly three times as many snaps (221) in that realm as on offense (79). Considering he's a restricted free agent in the offseason, Arizona seems apt to bring him back as a cost-controlled player. If he does return, Sherfield will be hard-pressed to climb a receiving depth chart occupied by DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, KeeSean Johnson and Andy Isabella, even with Larry Fitzgerald (groin) still contemplating whether to come back or retire.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Back on roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Sherfield missed last week's game against the Patriots but will be eligible to play Sunday against the Rams. The depth wideout has just one catch this season.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Placed on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

Sherfield has either tested positive for COVID-19 or come into contact with someone who has, putting his status for Sunday's matchup against the Patriots in doubt. If he isn't able to suit up against New England, his absence shouldn't have a major impact, as he's recorded just one reception for six yards. However, the Cardinals will have to rely on more receiving depth Sunday after Larry Fitzgerald (illness) tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Mostly contained to special teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield logged one snap on offense and 15 plays on special teams during Sunday's 37-34 overtime win over the Seahawks.

With just one six-yard catch on the season, Sherfield holds little sway in the fantasy realm in a receiving corps composed of DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, Larry Fitzgerald and Andy Isabella. Still, Sherfield's prowess on kick and punt coverage allows him to be a regular on the game-day roster.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Tallies special-teams tackle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield wasn't targeted and notched a tackle on punt coverage during Monday's 38-10 victory at Dallas.

The Cardinals made fellow wide receiver KeeSean Johnson a healthy scratch, but Sherfield handled just six of 62 snaps on offense while logging 13 special-teams plays. On the season, Sherfield has one catch on 23 offensive snaps through six contests, so he holds little to no sway in the fantasy realm.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Records first catch of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield caught his only target for six yards during Sunday's 30-10 road win versus the Jets.

Sherfield logged a season-high nine snaps on offense and 13 on special teams on his way to his first target (and reception) of the campaign. Still, he rang in fifth in offensive snap share among Cardinals wide receivers, exhibiting his standing with the unit.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Sticking primarily to special teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield logged one snap on offense and 13 plays on special teams during Sunday's 26-23 defeat to the Lions.

Sherfield has yet to record a touch or target, but his work on special teams has been consistent. On Sunday in particular, he had a tackle on a kick return and downed a punt at Detroit's nine-yard line. Having said that, Sherfield has received just eight offensive snaps through three games, despite KeeSean Johnson spending the first two contests on the reserve/COVID-19 list and Christian Kirk (groin) sitting out Week 3. It appears Sherfield will require multiple injuries to wide receivers at the same time to make an impact on offense.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Little chance to contribute Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield logged two snaps on offense and 15 special-teams plays during Sunday's 24-20 win in San Francisco.

Sherfield's sole contribution in the play-by-play log was a downed punt in the middle of the third quarter. Moving forward, he'll have difficulty eking out chances on offense due to the presence of DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk at the top of the wide receiver depth chart, and Andy Isabella occupying the No. 4 spot. Expect Sherfield to continue being a regular on special teams, however.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Manages four receptions in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield had four catches (on 13 targets) for 80 yards in 16 contests during the 2019 season.

Sherfield was the Cardinals' only outside receiver to suit up for every game but didn't receive a target after Week 10, as he primarily was contained to special teams. In that realm, he totaled eight tackles and a fumble recovery, but such output is moot for fantasy purposes. Under contract for 2020, Sherfield may have difficulty working his way up the depth chart with a trio of wide receivers (Andy Isabella, Keesean Johnson and Hakeem Butler) to develop from Arizona's 2019 draft class.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Mostly contained to special teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield played one snap on offense and 11 special-teams plays during Sunday's 34-7 loss to the Rams.

Aside from downing a punt in the third quarter, Sherfield didn't make an appearance on the official play-by-play chart. While he's been active for all 12 of the Cardinals' contests this season, he's also put up zeroes in the box score in every outing aside from a four-game stretch Weeks 4 through 7. With offensive snaps difficult to come by, Sherfield's output has therefore been minimal.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: No production again Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield played four of 69 offensive snaps and 15 more plays on special teams during Sunday's 36-26 defeat in San Francisco.

After posting exactly one catch in four consecutive games between Weeks 4 and 7, Sherfield's role has dried up, as he's failed to reel in any of his four targets in the Cardinals' subsequent four contests. In that same stretch, rookies KeeSean Johnson and Andy Isabella have served as the team's most-used outside receivers. Arizona is on bye Week 12, but when it gets back on the field Sunday, Dec. 1 versus the Rams, Sherfield isn't much of a candidate to contribute.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Sparse role of late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield logged just six of 70 offensive snaps during Sunday's 30-27 loss at Tampa Bay.

Sherfield had a five-game stretch Weeks 4 through 8 in which he played between 52 and 84 percent of the snaps on offense. However, he didn't produce much with the elevated role, gathering in four of 10 targets for 80 yards and no touchdowns. On Sunday, Sherfield was blanked for the third straight outing, while rookie outside receivers KeeSean Johnson (53 percent) and Andy Isabella (37 percent) led the way at the position, and Damiere Byrd was a healthy scratch. Currently, Sherfield appears to be a distant third in the pecking order.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Ready for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Thursday's contest against the 49ers.

Sherfield stepped up his activity in every practice this week, going from no participation Monday to taking every rep Wednesday. He'll thus take on his usual role as the second-most-used outside receiver behind Damiere Byrd in the Cardinals offense.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Upgrades to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield (knee) was a limited practice participant Tuesday.

Since becoming a regular part of the passing game Week 4, Sherfield has received at least 52 percent of the offensive snaps in five straight games and as many as 80 percent two times during that span. His output has been lacking, though, as he's totaled four catches (on 10 targets) for 80 yards and no touchdowns. Wednesday's injury report will give a sense of his odds to suit up Thursday versus the 49ers.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Tending to knee concern
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield (knee) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report.

Sherfield was the Cardinals' second-most utilized outside receiver during Sunday's 31-9 loss at New Orleans, earning a 53 percent share of the offensive snaps. He ranked behind Damiere Byrd (88 percent) and ahead of Andy Isabella (two percent) while KeeSean Johnson was inactive, but the workload didn't amount to any production, as Sherfield was unable to gather in either of his targets. With a knee injury in tow, Sherfield's availability now is in question ahead of Thursday's divisional matchup with the 49ers.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Receives one target Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield reeled in his only target for four yards during Sunday's 27-21 road win versus the Giants.

While his production left much to be desired, Sherfield led all Cardinals wide receivers with an 82 percent share of the offensive snaps. As for fellow outside WR Damiere Byrd, he bumped up to a normal workload (80 percent) in his second game back from a hamstring injury. Perhaps the most interesting development, though, was rookie KeeSean Johnson getting a season-low eight percent of those plays after receiving at least 57 percent in four of the first six games of the season. If the team maintains Sunday's breakdown of reps among the trio, more productive outings should be in store for Sherfield.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Goes long against Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield caught his lone target for a 38-yard gain during Sunday's 34-33 win over the Falcons.

Sherfield made his mark during Arizona's first drive when he broke up the sideline and reeled in a Kyler Murray loft for a gain of 38 yards to set up an Arizona field goal. Sherfield has just three catches this season, but he's averaging 25.3 yards per reception. He isn't getting enough targets to be a fantasy factor, but is a threat to go long again Sunday against a Giants defense surrendering a whopping 13.5 yards per catch, 31st in the league.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Makes most of one catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield gathered in his only target for 38 yards during Sunday's 34-33 victory against the Falcons.

With Damiere Byrd (hamstring) back in action for the first time since Week 3, Sherfield conceded some of his recent workload to the former, yet he still got 52 percent of the offensive snaps to Byrd's 22 percent. Meanwhile, KeeSean Johnson led Cardinals outside receivers with 81 percent of those plays. Once the group is healthy, the pecking order likely will read Byrd, Johnson and then Sherfield, a reality that would give him little opportunity to contribute on offense.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Makes another catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield recorded one reception (on three targets) for 23 yards during Sunday's 26-23 win at Cincinnati.

Sherfield has gotten increased run the past two games with Damiere Byrd out of the lineup due to a hamstring injury. However, Sherfield has been unable to make much of an impact, hauling in exactly one catch in each of those contests. As long as Byrd is sidelined, Sherfield can be expected to log a significant snap count: 84 percent of the snaps on offense Week 4, and 77 percent Sunday. On the other hand, a return from Byrd would force Sherfield back to a special-teams role.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Posts first catch of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield gathered in one of three passes for 15 yards during Sunday's 27-10 loss to the Seahawks.

After being primarily contained to special teams during the first three games of the season, Sherfield got a chance for significant action in place of the injured Damiere Byrd, who didn't play due to a hamstring injury. Sherfield essentially handled Byrd's entire workload -- 53 of 63 snaps on offense -- but production was lacking, with Kyler Murray focusing most of his attention on David Johnson (11 targets), Larry Fitzgerald (five) and Christian Kirk (five). Byrd's health will be one to watch this week, as another absence will keep Sherfield in an elevated role.
