8. The Role Of Anthony Sherman Needs To Expand

Anthony Sherman is the best fullback in the NFL. He’s an ill-intentioned bulldozer who happens to have the (soft) hands of a newborn.

Unfortunately, Kansas City tends to only focus on the former trait.

While Sherman’s touchdown reception wasn’t designed for him, it illustrated how dynamic he can be. He snatched the pass, broke a tackle, reversed field and rumbled his way into the end zone.

Obviously, Sherman’s best asset is his blocking, but that doesn’t mean he should be anchored to a one-dimensional role.

Today’s touchdown should (hopefully) open eyes.
