Jeff Sims

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Jeff Sims, a former four-star recruit, started all of the Jackets’ 10 games as a freshman and is poised to take a step forward in 2021. There were flashes of brilliance last season, and flashes of learning opportunities, as Sims completed 54.9 percent of his throws while tossing an equal 13 touchdowns and interceptions. The real appeal from Sims came from his dual threat ability, rushing 120 times for 492 yards and six scores, though it’s fair to question whether the Jackets want Sims to run more or less this season. They hit the transfer portal hard for offensive linemen, and have a very capable stable of running backs led by Jahmyr Gibbs and Jordan Mason, which could keep Sims in the pocket more, running only as necessary. Sims topped 250 yards only once last season, and while growth as a passer is expected, the Jackets are only in Year 2 of a non-option offense. There’s limited firepower out wide, and Sims may be a year away from a full breakout as a result. Read Past Outlooks
Four touchdowns in win over Duke
October 10, 2021
Sims completed 12-of-25 passes for 297 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Sims added 12 carries for 55 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 31-27 win over Duke.
ANALYSIS
Sims was very boom or bust through the air as he completed less than 50 percent of his passes but his completions went for an average of 24.8 yards. Sims had an all around solid day as he accounted for all four of Georgia Tech's touchdowns on the day. Watch for Sims to have an effective game on the ground in their next contest following a bye as he matches up against a Virginia defense that is giving up 194.8 rushing yards per game.
