Richard Sherman to play vs. Cardinals, spelling more bad news for Larry Fitzgerald's fantasy value

Otto Greule Jr

Richard Sherman will appeal his four-game suspension on December 14, making him available to play against the Cardinals. We break down the fantasy implications.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman has scheduled an appeal date for December 14, meaning that he's available to play against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14. Sherman and teammate Brandon Browner are fighting four-game suspensions for performance-enhancement violations.

Browner still does not have an appeal date set, but it's presumed he will be playing as well.

Fantasy Impact: Assuming the suspensions hold up, this would force Sherman to sit out of the wild-card round should the Seahawks make the playoffs.

Seattle will cross that bridge when/if they get to it, but for the here-and-now, Sherman will play and presumably face off against Larry Fitzgerald. Fitz has already struggled with an atrocious supporting cast, and will now have to face one of the top young corners in the league. Fantasy owners can safely sit him this week.
