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.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: More work on the docket
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield is on pace for an elevated role with Damiere Byrd (hamstring) unavailable for Sunday's contest against the Seahawks, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

The Cardinals trot out the top WR trio of Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk and Byrd on most snaps, while KeeSean Johnson (all season) and the recently released Michael Crabtree (Weeks 2 and 3) have filled in when the offense went four-wide. As Byrd's direct backup on the depth chart, Sherfield could take a large swath of his reps, which so far has translated to 92 percent of the offensive plays. In the end, this will be Sherfield's first chance to show what he can do in new coach Kliff Kingsbury's scheme.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Gets first target of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield didn't haul in his only target during Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Panthers.

Kyler Murray directed a pass in Sherfield's direction for the first time this season, but it's not as if the wide receiver has had much of a chance to contribute on offense, with just 12 snaps on that side of the ball through three games. Sherfield's primary offering has come on special teams, as he has two solo tackles as a part of kick coverage units. With the Cardinals moving on from Michael Crabtree on Monday, Sherfield may be one injury away from relevance, but Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk, Damiere Byrd and KeeSean Johnson nonetheless occupy the top four WR spots at the moment.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Blanked again Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield logged four snaps on offense and 16 plays on special teams during Sunday's 23-17 loss at Baltimore.

Sherfield maintained his usage from the Week 1, primarily serving on coverage and return units. He also was a distant fifth in offensive snap share behind Larry Fitzgerald (95 percent), Christian Kirk (93), Damiere Byrd (93), KeeSean Johnson (32) and Michael Crabtree (32), the latter of whom was making his Cardinals debut. For the time being, Sherfield remains a special teamer and not much else.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Zero production Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield played five of 89 snaps on offense and 22 snaps on special teams during Sunday's 27-27 tie with the Lions.

Sherfield notched a TD grab in both of the Cardinals' first two preseason games but went out with a whimper, gathering in just one of four targets in the final two exhibitions. The trend continued into the regular season, as he wasn't targeted at all Week 1 while making two tackles, recovering a fumble and downing a punt on special teams. With Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk, Damiere Byrd and KeeSean Johnson getting between 96 and 76 percent of the offensive snaps in this contest, Sherfield's six percent share doesn't lend itself too much utility. Plus, Michael Crabtree is slated to make his first appearance with the team Week 2 in Baltimore.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Doesn't impact box score Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield didn't haul in any of his three targets during Saturday's preseason loss in Minnesota.

In the Cardinals' first two exhibitions, Sherfield notched touchdown grabs of 22 and 40 yards, so his lack of production in preseason Week 3 isn't exactly worrisome. More pressing for Sherfield's standing in the receiving corps is the presence of Michael Crabtree, who signed with the team Wednesday but was held out Saturday. It's unclear if Crabtree will enter the starting lineup, but Sherfield doesn't have as many outside looks available as he did prior to the acquisition of Crabtree.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Paces pass catchers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield brought in four of five targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals' 17-13 preseason win over the Chargers on Thursday.

Sherfield checked in as the leader in receptions and receiving yards on either squad for the night, and his 22-yard scoring connection with Brett Hundley just before halftime erased a 7-0 deficit. The second-year wideout beat the odds last season to not only carve out a roster spot, but play in 13 games and generate a 19-210-1 line. Sherfield got his quest to stick for a second straight season off to a strong start, and he'll look to continue producing in next Thursday's preseason tilt against the Raiders.

Cardinals' Trent Sherfield: Ends season on high note
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherfield gathered in 19 of 28 passes for 210 yards and one touchdown in 13 appearances during the 2018 season.

Prior to a Week 9 bye, the undrafted rookie was active just five times, earning three offensive snaps versus 43 on special teams. However, the Cardinals' receiving corps experienced a number of injuries in the second half of the campaign and turned to Sherfield over the likes of J.J. Nelson and even Chad Williams when the latter was healthy enough to play. Between Weeks 14 and 17, Sherfield took advantage of the loss of Christian Kirk to a broken foot, turning 85 to 94 percent of the offensive snaps in all four games into a 16-177-1 line on 22 targets. At the very least, Sherfield put himself into the conversation for the No. 3 spot at wide receiver behind Larry Fitzgerald (assuming he returns) and Kirk for next year and beyond.
