Sims caught both of his targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-21 win over the Panthers. Sims' touchdown came on a six-yard grab from Taylor Heinicke in the second quarter to tie the game. The score marks the wideout's first trip to the end zone of the season. The 25-year-old played just 11 of Washington's 67 offensive snaps in the victory, as he continues to be far down the team's pecking order of pass catchers.
Sims caught both of his targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 29-19 win over the Buccaneers. Sims had a big game against Tampa in the playoffs last year but placed just fifth in playing time among Washington's wide receivers in this one. He got 18 percent of the offensive snaps, following 21 percent share in the final game before Washington's Week 9 bye. Sims likely will stay in a reserve role for Week 11 at Carolina, though he does have starting experience and could be promoted back to the lineup eventually if DeAndre Carter struggles or gets hurt. But even then, Dax Milne took more snaps (27 percent) than Sims in Week 10, suggesting he might be next up for Washington's revolving-door WR spot if Carter doesn't last.
Sims (hamstring) will play in Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Sims is cleared to play while Curtis Samuel (groin) is ruled out and Dyami Brown (knee) listed as questionable, but even if the depth chart is thinned out, Sims may not be ahead of DeAndre Carter at this point. Carter had his best game of the season right before the Week 9 bye, catching three of six targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in the 17-10 loss to Denver. Sims saw two targets and only 15 snaps in the same game, though it was his first week back in the lineup after missing three in a row with the hamstring injury. In any case, playing time hasn't necessarily led to targets in the past, so even a starting assignment won't come with much fantasy appeal if Sims gets it.
Sims (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Sims has had his practice reps capped for two consecutive days to begin the week. However, if the 25-year-old is able to remain on the practice field in some capacity Friday, he should have a good chance to suit up Sunday against the Buccaneers.
Sims (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Sims missed Weeks 5 through 7 with the hamstring injury, returning Week 8 to catch one of two targets for 20 yards while playing 15 snaps on offense (21 percent). He's apparently still bothered by his hamstring after a Week 9 bye, but he'll likely be able to play Sunday against the Buccaneers.
