Sims caught five of eight targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 47-16 loss to the Cowboys. He also lost six yards on one carry. Sims began the season as a return man and gadget player on offense, with his lone impact play in the first half of the year coming on a 65-yard end-around for a score against the Patriots in Week 5, but as injuries thinned the receiver ranks for Washington, the undrafted rookie got a chance to show he is a capable route runner as well. Sims hauled in 23 of 40 targets for 259 yards and four TDs over his last five games, and he also added a 91-yard kickoff return touchdown in Week 12. Terry McLaurin (concussion) remains the team's No. 1 WR heading into 2020, and Washington's eventual new head coach may want to bolster the depth of the position group in the draft or via free agency, but Sims seems to have done enough to earn a prominent role in the offense next year.
Sims caught six of 10 targets for 64 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 41-35 loss to the Giants. He also carried two times for nine yards. Sims led the team in targets while adding receiving touchdowns in the first and third quarters. He hadn't received more than four targets in any game prior to Week 14, but he's been thrown to 28 times over the last three weeks while hauling in 15 of those targets and scoring three touchdowns. Sims is clearly carving out a prominent role in the offense and will look to finish the season off on a high note next Sunday against the Cowboys.
Sims caught five of 11 targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-27 loss to Philadelphia. Sims scored his first career receiving touchdown from five yards out in the second quarter, but he also had a critical drop on a deep ball with the game tied in the fourth. The Redskins challenged the play for possible defensive pass interference, but their challenge came up empty. With his role expanding down the stretch, a deep-league flier on Sims could end up paying off against the vulnerable Giants secondary in Week 16.
Offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell said Friday that he wants Sims to get the ball more, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan Washington reports. The undrafted rookie replaced Trey Quinn (concussion) as Washington's primary slot receiver in last week's 20-15 loss to Green Bay, catching four of seven targets for 40 yards while playing a season-high 71 percent of the offensive snaps. Quinn has been ruled out again for Sunday's game against the Eagles, leaving Sims with another nice opportunity to see regular playing time.
Sims secured four of seven targets for 40 yards in the Redskins' 20-15 loss to the Packers on Sunday. Sims drew the start for Trey Quinn (concussion) in Sunday's contest and finished second on the team in receptions and receiving yards. The undrafted rookie has mainly been given opportunities as a kick returner this season, but his encouraging effort on offense Sunday could help him carve out additional snaps from scrimmage during the Redskins' three remaining games.
