Steven Sims
24-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Sims caught 27 of 37 targets for 265 yards and a touchdown in 12 regular-season games during the 2020 campaign. Sims opened the year as Washington's No. 2 wide receiver, after scoring four TDs over the final three weeks of his 2019 rookie campaign. The team even experimented with giving him more snaps on the perimeter at the beginning of the season, but Sims moved back to the slot after a toe injury sent him to IR for Weeks 4-8. He then averaged just 3.2 targets and 18.0 receiving yards over his final nine games of the regular season. The speedy young wideout is under contract for one more season, but he could face competition for a roster spot this offseason, as he struggled with ball security on punt returns and never quite established himself as a key part of the Washington offense.

Facing competition for roster spot
WRWashington Football Team
July 6, 2021
Sims appears to be on the roster bubble this summer, according to ESPN's John Keim.
ANALYSIS
Sims made the team as an undrafted rookie in 2019 and even scored four TDs over the final four weeks of the season, but he then managed just one score (and 265 receiving yards) in 12 games last year. His ability to contribute in the return game should help his cause, but it won't necessarily be enough to guarantee a roster spot after Washington added wideouts Curtis Samuel, Adam Humphries and Dyami Brown (a third-round pick) this offseason. Sims likely will line up with the second-team offense at the start of training camp, while competition for kick/punt returns includes WRs DeAndre Carter and Isaiah Wright and CB Danny Johnson.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Undrafted out of Kansas last spring, Sims fought his way to a spot on Washington's 53-man roster, opening the season with a role on kick returns and a handful of snaps per game on offense. He scored a 65-yard touchdown on an end-around Week 5 and a 91-yard TD on a kick return Week 12, setting the stage for increased playing time once slot specialist Trey Quinn suffered a season-ending concussion in early December. Sims quickly proved to be an upgrade on Quinn, catching 20 of 36 targets for 230 yards and four TDs over the final four weeks of the season. The strong finish should make Sims the favorite for slot work in 2020, but that doesn't mean he won't have any competition - potentially from both Quinn and third-round pick Antonio Gibson. The team claims it wants to use Gibson out of the backfield, but his skill set could also translate to wide receiver, which happens to be a less crowded position in Washington. Of course, Sims can make it a moot point if he picks up where he left off in December.
