Not targeted in win over Jets

Sherfield was not targeted during Sunday's 11-6 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Sherfield didn't draw a target from Skylar Thompson despite having been involved enough Week 17 to draw six looks. As such, the regular-season finale counts as Sherfield's first game of the 2022 regular season without a target. He could be more involved in the wild-card matchup against Buffalo, especially if the Dolphins have Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) or Teddy Bridgewater back under center.

Targeted six times in loss

Sherfield secured two of six targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: Sherfield tied his single-game target record this season with a combination of Teddy Bridgewater (finger) and Skylar Thompson under center Sunday. While he wasn't efficient with increased volume, Sherfield could be a sneaky fantasy option for Week 18's regular-season finale against the Jets dependent on the health of Miami's quarterback position, as if Thompson is back under center a similar gameplan could be deployed.

Secures both targets

Sherfield caught both of his targets for 25 yards during Sunday's 26-20 loss to Green Bay.

Analysis: Sherfield once again handled a key complementary role for Miami's offense, though his usage didn't translate to fantasy production. With just two touchdowns on the year, and only three games with at least 50 receiving yards, Sherfield can only be considered a fantasy dart throw with a divisional matchup against the Patriots on deck Week 17.

No catches in divisional loss

Sherfield could not secure his only target during Saturday's 32-29 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: Sherfield had seen 17 targets in his last four games prior to Saturday's loss, so his lack of involvement could have been partially due to adverse weather conditions. The Dolphins get a home matchup against the Packers in Week 16, but Sherfield's fantasy relevance is still restricted to extremely deep formats.

Just one catch on SNF

Sherfield had one reception (four targets) for seven yards in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Chargers.

Analysis: Sherfield was unable to reproduce last week's 75-yard touchdown catch, crashing back down to earth with his worst stat line since Week 6. The 26-year-old still saw his usual allotment of targets (four) as the Dolphins' third receiving option. Jaylen Waddle (fibula) struggled and has been limited by injury, and now Tyreek Hill (ankle) may be banged up as well, so Sherfield could see his usage increase to help offset any limitations Miami's star wideout duo may suffer against the Bills on Saturday.

Scores long TD

Sherfield's only catch on three targets went for a 75-yard touchdown in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the 49ers.

Analysis: Sherfield started with a bang, as his touchdown came on the very first offensive play of the game and comfortably marked the longest gain of his career. Although he didn't make any other catches, Sherfield could garner more looks should teammate Jaylen Waddle continue to be impacted by a leg injury suffered Sunday in Week 14 versus the Chargers.

Pair of grabs in win

Sherfield secured two of five targets for 33 yards in the Dolphins' 30-15 win over the Texans on Sunday.

Analysis: Sherfield continued to function as the Dolphins' clear-cut third receiver, checking in behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle for third in targets on the day. The fifth-year veteran is up to a career-high 24 receptions and 280 yards through 10 games and will have a chance to face the team he spent 2021 with, the 49ers, in a Week 13 road showdown.

Productive in win over Browns

Sherfield secured four of five targets for 63 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 39-17 win over the Browns.

Analysis: Sherfield's highlight of the day was a 14-yard, toe-tapping touchdown catch via perfectly placed pass from Tua Tagovailoa in the second quarter, his first score of the season. Though Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle account for the vast majority of Miami's passing production, Sherfield has emerged as a more than competent No. 3 complementary man, and he turned in his best performance of the season Week 10. Sherfield has played more than 50 percent of offensive snaps in eight straight games, and it's possible that he could continue to see more regular looks after the Dolphins return from a bye. In deeper fantasy formats, the 26-year-old warrants monitoring, as he should be available on the vast majority of waiver wires when Miami takes on Houston in Week 12.

Nov 14, 2022 9:41 AM EST

Listed as active Sunday

Sherfield (toe) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Analysis: Sherfield, who was a late addition to the injury report, is in uniform, but if he's limited at all, Cedrick Wilson could see an uptick in opportunities Sunday. However, as long as Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle are both available, they'll continue to command the bulk of Miami's WR targets, thus limiting the fantasy upside of the team's complementary options. In a Week 9 win over the Bears, Sherfield caught all three of his targets for 27 yards, and overall has put together an 18/184/0 receiving line through nine contests.

Nov 13, 2022 8:45 AM EST

Late addition to injury report

The Dolphins added Sherfield to their Week 10 injury report, and he'll be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns with a toe injury, Marcel Louis-Jacques of reports.

Analysis: Sherfield may have picked up the injury at some point during the Dolphins' final practice of the week Friday. The Dolphins will likely see how Sherfield fares in pregame warmups before making a call on his status before the team releases its inactive list 90 minutes before the 1 p.m. ET kickoff. Sherfield has settled in as the Dolphins' No. 3 wideout behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, but he has yet to reach the end zone this season and has topped out at four receptions and 55 receiving yards over his nine appearances.

Nov 13, 2022 6:50 AM EST

Secures all three targets

Sherfield caught all three of his targets for 25 yards during Sunday's 35-32 win over the Bears.

Analysis: Sherfield continues to show well for Miami as the No. 3 option behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, arguably the league's most dynamic wide receiver tandem. He recorded a key third-down conversion in the first quarter via an 18-yard catch, but while Sherfield's role has become important for the Dolphins, there are still no signs of it translating into fantasy relevance. Miami will prepare to host the Browns in Week 10.

Racks up 25 yards

Sherfield secured two of three targets for 25 yards during Sunday's 31-27 win over the Lions.

Analysis: Sherfield had a near touchdown on an 11-yard catch, but he was ruled just short of what would have been his first score of the season. While Sherfield's production is limited to the leftovers of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, both of whom surpassed 100 receiving yards Sunday, it's encouraging to see him log a sixth straight game playing more than half of offensive snaps. In extremely deep leagues, Sherfield could carry some end-of-roster fantasy value against the Bears in Week 9.

Makes impact on Sunday night

Sherfield secured all three of his targets for 44 yards during Sunday's 16-10 win over Pittsburgh.

Analysis: Sherfield appears to have established himself above Cedrick Wilson as Miami's No. 3 wideout, as he's now played at least 50 percent of offensive snaps in five straight games. Still, Miami's aerial attack runs through Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, with little left over for depth receiving options aside from the occasional big game from tight end Mike Gesicki. Sherfield has only surpassed 10 receiving yards twice this season.

Oct 24, 2022 5:50 AM EST

Only one catch

Sherfield secured one of two targets for five yards during 40-17 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Sherfield's opportunities on offense dwindled with Cedrick Wilson back in action and a third-string quarterback under center for Miami. However, he still logged 66 percent of offensive snaps. Sherfield can't be considered a viable fantasy option while he remains in a depth role, but he possesses limited upside if starters above him on the depth chart are forced to miss time.

Oct 10, 2022 1:31 PM EST

Productive as No. 3 receiver

Sherfield secured four of six targets for 55 yards during Thursday's 27-15 loss to the Bengals.

Analysis: Sherfield handled a significant role behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle with Cedrick Wilson (ribs) inactive Thursday, recording the third highest receiving total of his career. If Wilson gets back on the field Week 5 versus the Jets, though, Sherfield will stand to revert to a depth spot. When Sherfield does get opportunities on offense in Miami, though, his familiarity with coach Mike McDaniel's offense makes him worthy of fantasy consideration in leagues with deep starting requirements.

Sep 30, 2022 3:33 AM EST

Plays 20 snaps in team debut

Sherfield caught one of two targets for eight yards during Sunday's 20-7 win versus the Patriots.

Analysis: Sherfield was on the field for 20 offensive snaps during his Dolphins debut, putting him firmly as the No. 4 wideout behind Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle and Cedrick Wilson. With Hill and Waddle commanding the majority of the attention, it's unlikely Sherfield will have much fantasy value moving forward.

Sep 14, 2022 8:38 AM EST

Lands in Miami

The Dolphins are signing Sherfield to a one-year contract Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Sherfield reunites with coach Mike McDaniel in Miami, so it seems likely that he will reprise a similar role to the one he handled in San Francisco. Of course, with three straight seasons of under 100 receiving yards under his belt, Sherfield remains off the fantasy radar even with a new team. He stands to handle a depth role and contribute on special teams in the 2022 season.

Mar 17, 2022 6:30 AM EST

One catch in Week 18

Sherfield caught his lone target for 13 yards in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Sherfield was limited to just 10 offensive snaps (14 percent), which was in line with how he was being used all season. The 25-year-old only had one game (Week 13 vs. SEA) where he received more than 50 percent of the offensive snaps. Sherfield showed some promise in the preseason, building a rapport with rookie quarterback, Trey Lance, so there is a chance the 49ers elect to re-sign the unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Jan 10, 2022 11:17 AM EST

First catch in weeks

Sherfield caught one of two targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 23-7 win over Houston.

Analysis: Sherfield was on the field for eight offensive snaps (13 percent), which is in line with the amount of playing time he has been receiving at No. 4 on the depth chart. The 25-year-old got his first catch and multi-target game since Week 13, and it was no coincidence that Trey Lance was under center. The two young players showed some rapport during the preseason, when they connected on two long plays from scrimmage. It is unclear whether Lance will get another start or if Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) will heal before next week's tilt against the Rams, but Sherfield won't see enough playing time to make a fantasy impact, even if one quarterback prefers him over the other.

Jan 3, 2022 11:55 AM EST

Limited to five offensive snaps

Sherfield logged five offensive snaps (nine percent) and did not record a catch on his lone target in Sunday's 31-13 win over the Falcons.

Analysis: Jauan Jennings (3-28-1) maintained his role as the 49ers' third wideout on the depth chart, keeping Sherfield buried in his recent role as the fourth wideout and special teams contributor. The 25-year-old has just seven receptions through 14 games this season, so he won't garner fantasy attention heading into a Week 16 matchup against the Titans.
