Racks up 16 yards in win
WRPittsburgh Steelers
January 9, 2023
Sims rushed once for 16 yards during the Steelers' 28-14 win over the Browns on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Sims played at least 34 percent of the Steelers' offensive snaps in each of the final nine games of the season, but he saw inconsistent touches and wasn't a reliable fantasy option. Over 12 appearances, he secured 14 of 23 targets for 104 yards while rushing 13 times for 70 yards. He's slated to become a restricted free agent during the offseason, and it's unclear whether he'll be back with the Steelers in 2023. The 25-year-old served as the team's return man down the stretch but is unlikely to carry much fantasy value if he remains in Pittsburgh next year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
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.
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.
