Previewing Anthony Sherman for Super Bowl DFS

Anthony Sherman is a vital part of the Chiefs’ offense, but his impact doesn’t show up on the stat sheet. We break down his performance to date, his DraftKings and FanDuel salaries, and what to expect for Super Bowl 54.

The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers square off in Super Bowl 54 on Sunday, February 2nd. We’ll be breaking down everything you need to know to prepare your daily fantasy football lineups for the big game. We’re starting with a player-by-player preview for the skill position players on the two teams.

Veteran fullback Anthony Sherman has played in all 112 consecutive regular season games for the Chiefs, dating back to his first season with the team in 2013. He doesn’t get much attention because of his position, but he is a key blocker for one of the most explosive offenses in football. He’ll try to make his mark on Super Bowl 54 any way he can.

Season performance

Sherman had a quiet regular season and only tallied nine rushing yards on four carries. He also logged two receptions for 22 yards. The 2018 Pro Bowl standout doesn’t get many touches, and that trend has carried over into the playoffs.

Playoff performance

Sherman has been dead silent in the postseason. His highlight of the playoffs was when he received one target in the AFC title game.

Matchup

The 49ers have one of the best defensive lines in football. It can get after the quarterback and stuff the run. Dalvin Cook and Aaron Jones have both been rendered useless against it in the postseason. If the Chiefs’ running game is stifled, they’re more likely to throw to Damien Williams or their other weapons than turn to Sherman.

DFS pricing and analysis

Sherman isn’t worth a captain’s play or a flex play. He hasn’t touched the ball since Week 13, and that probably won’t change on the world’s biggest stage. There’s a slight chance he could have his number called on a goal line run, but that’s not worth wasting a slot on him.
