  • Commanders' Cam Sims: Re-signs with Washington

    Sims re-signed Wednesday with the Commanders on a two-year, $3 million contract, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Sims sticks with the only team he's ever known, having mostly served as a backup since first catching on with Washington in 2018. He made 10 starts in 2020 and finished the season with 477 yards, but then dropped to a 15-211-2 receiving line in 14 games last season (three starts). He'll likely be fourth or fifth on the wideout depth chart entering training camp this summer.

  • Commanders' Cam Sims: Finishes year with 15 catches

    Sims finished the 2021 season with 15 catches for 211 yards and two touchdowns on 23 targets, making three starts in 14 games.

    Sims finished out the season as Washington's No. 2 receiver -- at least in terms of snaps -- for the second straight year, though this time he made only three starts instead of 10. In addition to starting seven fewer contests than in 2020, he finished with about half the receiving production in each category, apart from TDs (32-477-1 on 48 targets in 2020). The 26-year-old Sims is now scheduled for free agency this spring, and he should catch on somewhere as a depth receiver and special teams player if he doesn't re-sign with Washington first. It'll be more of a surprise if he attracts serious interest as a potential starter, given that he struggled to make his presence felt the past two years even when he got more playing time.

  • Football Team's Cam Sims: Racks up four catches

    Sims recorded four catches on five targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to Philadelphia.

    Sims continued to see a significant role in Washington's offense, and he managed a season-high in targets and receptions. He also finished second on the team in yards behind only Terry McLaurin on the strength of catches that went for 18, 16 and 12 yards. Sims should maintain a similar role for a Week 18 matchup against the Giants, though Washington's offensive inconsistency make it difficult to expect strong production.

  • Football Team's Cam Sims: Starts, but no catches

    Sims got the start and played 62 percent of offensive snaps in Sunday's 56-14 loss to Dallas, but he was unable to catch a pass on three targets.

    Sims caught three of four targets for 69 yards and a TD two weeks earlier in the first game against Dallas. He's since seen considerable playing time in back-to-back games, but with just one catch (for 13 yards) to show for it, he may slide back to a timeshare with the likes of Dyami Brown, DeAndre Carter and Dax Milne. There's still minimal fantasy potential for Washington pass catchers behind Terry McLaurin.

  • Football Team's Cam Sims: Back from COVID-19 list

    Washington reinstated Sims (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday.

    The NFL's decision to push back Washington's Week 15 game against the Eagles from Sunday to Tuesday provided enough time for Sims -- and likely more players to follow -- to clear all COVID-19-related protocols and help alleviate some depth concerns for the Football Team, which still has 13 members of the roster on the list and several more on injured reserve. The receiver room is one of the few position groups on the roster that hasn't been hit hard by COVID-19-related absences or injury, so Sims likely won't be in store for a sizable role Week 15. Sims saw extra work Week 14 against Dallas after top wideout Terry McLaurin exited early with a concussion, but McLaurin practiced fully Sunday for the second day in a row and appears on track to clear the NFL's five-step protocol for head injuries before Tuesday's game.

  • Football Team's Cam Sims: Tests positive for virus

    Sims' placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday was the result of a positive test of the virus, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Washington didn't officially provide an explanation beyond Sims' placement on the list, but Yates notes that 30 of the 31 of NFL players that landed on the list Wednesday tested positive for the virus, with Jordan Ranaan of relaying that Giants safety Xavier McKinney was placed on the list as an unvaccinated high-risk close contact. Because Sims is vaccinated, he'll be eligible to report back to the Football Team facility so long as he's asymptomatic for a 48-hour period and tests negative for the virus on two consecutive occasions at least 24 hours apart. He'll still face an uphill battle to gain clearance for Sunday's game against the Eagles, and at the very least, he won't be able to take part in any of the Football Team's practices this week.

  • Football Team's Cam Sims: Lands on COVID list

    Washington placed Sims on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Sims helped fill in for an injured Terry McLaurin (concussion) and finished with 3-69-1 receiving line on four targets in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Cowboys. With both wideouts now in danger of missing this weekend's game in Philadelphia, there may be an opportunity for Curtis Samuel, DeAndre Carter or Dyami Brown to take on more snaps.

  • Football Team's Cam Sims: Leads team in receiving

    Sims caught three of four targets for 69 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Cowboys.

    Terry McLaurin (concussion) only played 33 offensive snaps, which opened the door for Sims to notch season-highs in both receptions and yards. The majority of the 6-foot-5 wideout's production came on a spectacular, 43-yard touchdown grab in the third quarter. Despite Sims' big play, Adam Humphries appeared to be the more consistent go-to guy with McLaurin out, as he led the team in both targets (seven) and receptions (four). If McLaurin is sidelined in Week 15, Sims, Humphries and DeAndre Carter are all candidates for increased snaps against the Eagles on Sunday.

  • Football Team's Cam Sims: Hits pay dirt in win

    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.

  • Football Team's Cam Sims: Limited to 10 yards

    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.

  • Football Team's Cam Sims: Cleared to face Tampa

    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.

  • Football Team's Cam Sims: Still dealing with hamstring

    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.

  • Football Team's Cam Sims: Limited Thursday

    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.
