WR - SF
This Week Outlook
49ers WR Trent Sherfield caught 2-of-3 targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 1 win over the Lions.
Sherfield found the end zone by connecting with Trey Lance close to the goal-line. The big story of the day, however, was Sherfield starting over Brandon Aiyuk. It sounds as if Aiyuk is in Kyle Shanahan's dog house for now, so look for Sherfield to see an expanded role for the time being.
49ers WR Trent Sherfield caught his lone target for an 80-yard touchdown in Saturday's defeat to Kansas City.
Sherfield hauled in rookie Trey Lance's first completion, which went for an 80-yard score. It served as the play of the evening, and Sherfield will look to stay hot in the final two weeks of preseason to secure a spot on the 53-man roster.
Trent Sherfield snared his only target for a 38 yard gain in Week 6 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Third on the team in Week 6 wide receiver snaps (52 percent), Sherfield managed just one reception off his lone target. With Damiere Byrd rounding back into health after returning against the Falcons, and Christian Kirk nearing a return of his own, Sherfield's fantasy value is on life support. Sherfield should not be on fantasy radars going forward.
Trent Sherfield hauled in one of his three targets for 23 receiving yards in a Week 5 win over the Arizona Cardinals.
Sherfield played 95 percent of the Week 5 snaps (second on the team behind Keesean Johnson), but ended up fifth on the team with three targets. Sherfield has been playing in Damiere Byrd’s position, but has yet to see the level of involvement many had posited would be possible for the sophomore receiver out of Vanderbilt. Sherfield can be safely left on the wire in all formats.
Trent Sherfield caught two passes for 23 scoreless yards in Week 17.
The rookie wideout finishes with 19 catches for 210 yards and a touchdown. He started playing more once Christian Kirk went down with a season-ending injury. Sherfield isn't expected to see much run in 2019, however. Arizona will surely make some upgrades to its receiver core.
