2020 Fantasy Outlook
Sims caught on with Washington in 2018 as an undrafted rookie out of Alabama, earning a spot on the Week 1 roster but then suffering an ankle injury on the opening kickoff of the season. After spending the rest of his rookie year on injured reserve, he spent most of 2019 on the Washington practice squad. Sims has a shot at something bigger for the upcoming season, as there's open competition for wide receiver roles behind top target Terry McLaurin. It's a nice opportunity for a little-known player to jump from obscurity to a regular role in the offense. Of course, Washington will also have Steve Sims, Antonio Gandy-Golden and Trey Quinn, among others, competing for those spots. Read Past Outlooks

Eclipses century mark in loss
WRWashington Football Team
January 9, 2021
Sims brought in seven of 13 targets for 104 yards in Washington's 31-23 wild-card loss to the Buccaneers on Saturday night.
ANALYSIS
Sims recorded a team-high 36-yard reception on his way to leading Washington in catches, receiving yards and targets. The third-year wideout eclipsed the century mark only once during the regular season, a 110-yard effort against the Giants in Week 9. After recording just two receptions for 27 yards in his first two seasons, Sims had a breakout of sorts in 2020 with a 32-477-1 line across 16 games. He'll now head into the offseason with some momentum following Saturday night's stellar showing and will look to make an even bigger impact in 2021.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Sims caught just 41 passes in four seasons at Alabama, struggling to earn targets in an offense dominated by Calvin Ridley and a strong rushing attack. The then earned a spot on Washington's 53-man roster as an undrafted rookie in 2018, only to suffer a high-ankle sprain on the opening kickoff of the regular season. Sims is back in 2019 to compete for a depth job at wide receiver, though he could find his way to a more regular role if the team ever gives up on Josh Doctson.
Sims didn't get much work at the University of Alabama, but he reportedly caught coach Jay Gruden's attention with his impressive combination of size and speed. The undrafted rookie is a long shot to crack the 53-man roster, though his odds did improve when fellow wideout Robert Davis suffered a season-ending leg injury during the preseason.
