2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Even if the Dolphins didn't sign Jordan Cameron after losing Charles Clay to the Bills, it's highly unlikely that Sims would've been given a legitimate shot at the starting tight end job. This is not to say that Sims doesn't have some talent, but rather, he has yet to show that he can be a starting TE in the NFL. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill seems to prefer the short passing game, but often targeted wide receivers rather than Sims or another backup tight end when Clay wasn’t available in recent seasons. As a result, Cameron may end up being the only Dolphins tight end with significant fantasy value in the majority of leagues this season.

2014

Sims had a disappointing rookie season as he only tallied five catches. The starting tight end job was wide open after Dustin Keller went down for the season in pre-season but Charles Clay ended up running away with it and will be the starter again this season leaving Sims along with a couple of other players battling for the backup role.

2013

Sims was drafted by the Dolphins more for his ability as a blocker than as a pass catcher.
