Bears' Dion Sims: Inks three-year deal with Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims agreed to a three-year, $18 million contract with the Bears Thursday that includes $10 million in guaranteed money, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports.

Sims may not have the blocking ability that the recently departed Logan Paulsen possesses, but he possess a more dynamic skill set that will give the Bears one of the more dangerous tight end tandems in the league. He also provides a strong insurance policy for Zach Miller, who has missed 19 total games over the past three seasons. Sims is coming off his best professional season in Miami, snagging 26 of 35 targets for 256 yards and four touchdowns.

Dolphins' Dion Sims: Nearing agreement with Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims is closing in on an agreement with the Bears, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.

Sims operated as Miami's top tight end in 2016 after Jordan Cameron (head) suffered a season-ending concussion. Though he doesn't have the speed or burst most teams look for in a starting tight end, Sims does have the size, strength and blocking ability to make up for his lack of downfield impact. He'd likely step in as Chicago's No. 2 tight end in place of Logan Paulsen, who is expected to sign with San Francisco, according to CSN Bay Area.

Dolphins' Dion Sims: Tallies five receptions in wild-card loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims secured all five of his targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 30-12 wild-card loss to the Steelers.

The jumbo-sized tight end was once again a trusted part of the short passing game, with his five receptions surpassing his total from any regular-season game in 2016. Sims upped his involvement in the offense after Jordan Cameron went on injured reserve in early November with a concussion, and he served as a reliable target for both Ryan Tannehill and Matt Moore. In the process, Sims set a new career high in receptions (26) and touchdowns (four).

Dolphins' Dion Sims: Silent in regular-season finale
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sims failed to catch his only target during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Sims wasn't heard from in the regular-season finale as the Dolphins' passing attack almost exclusively flowed through a triad of Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. Having not seen more than four targets in a single game all season, Sims remains a touchdown-dependent fantasy option for Sunday's postseason matchup with the Steelers.

Dolphins' Dion Sims: Catches two passes in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims caught two passes for 10 yards in Saturday's 34-31 win over the Bills.

Sims was coming off a two touchdown performance against the Jets in Week 15 before his poor showing Saturday. He has yet to have more than 53 yards and four catches in any game this season, most of his value being predicated on his catching a touchdown. Against the Patriots and their No. 1 scoring defense in the NFL, Sims likely won't have much fantasy value in Week 17.
