RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

A third-round pick last year, Sims did not debut until Week 10 because of an ankle injury, and he didn't wow anyone with his production once he did suit up. While Sims has good burst and elusiveness and can pick up yards on the ground, his standout skill is as a receiver, and his soft hands, smart routes and natural pass-catching ability could allow him to line up in the slot as well as in the backfield. A narrow frame and upright running style restricts his running power despite his size, though, and leaves him vulnerable to injury. The offense underwent a massive makeover this season, with first overall pick Jameis Winston and former Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter putting the focus on the passing game, providing Sims an opportunity to poach some touches from Doug Martin. Despite preseason indications the Bucs were headed for a more even time share, there has been little to indicate that the team views Sims as anything more than a passing-down specialist.

2014

The 6-0, 211-pound Sims shocked many as Tampa Bay's third round selection, but it's his exceptional hands and great quickness that intrigues the new coaching staff. Down the road, Sims could become the Bucs' best pass-catching back, but an August ankle injury ensures that he will miss time to start the coming season.
