2019 Fantasy Outlook
Witherspoon really struggled in a starting role opposite Richard Sherman last season, as his side of the field was constantly being picked on by opposing offenses. The 23-year-old's shortcomings led to the front office going out and acquiring veteran corner Jason Verrett, who figures to replace Witherspoon in the starting lineup when healthy. With K'waun Williams occupying the slot, Witherspoon could begin the year as a fourth/backup corner after faltering as a starter last year. Read Past Outlooks
