Richard Sherman wins appeal of suspension: Fantasy implications

USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks will be playing with their top cornerback on Sunday after Sherman won the appeal of his suspension.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has won the appeal of his four-game suspension, according to a tweet he sent out on Thursday afternoon.

Sherman was facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, but he won the appeal and didn't miss any games in the process. Sherman has been a huge part of one of the league's elite secondaries, so this is huge news for the NFC playoff picture.

Fantasy Impact: Richard Sherman is a lockdown cornerback that brings so much to the table for Seattle's defense. his presence is a huge boost to the fantasy value of the Seahawks' defense in Week 17. Meanwhile, the St. Louis Rams' wide receivers are going to be stuck with Sherman in the final week of the season.

Be sure to stay clear of Sam Bradford and the Rams' wide receivers this week.
