  • Steven Sims: Does make practice squad

    The Texans signed Sims to the practice squad Wednesday.

    Sims couldn't make Houston's initial 53-man roster, but he will stick around via the practice squad. He spent the past two seasons operating as a depth receiver and option in the return game with Pittsburgh.

  • Steven Sims: Won't make team

    Sims was cut by the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Sims spent the last two seasons with the Steelers operating as a return man and depth receiver, and he was working to earn a similar role in Houston. However, it appears the Texans will opt to go with Mike Boone and Tank Dell in the kick and punt return roles respectively.

  • Texans' Steven Sims: Signing with Texans

    The Texans are signing Sims to a contract Friday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Sims will join Houston after spending the last two seasons with the Steelers, bursting onto the scene as Pittsburgh's return specialist in 2022. The wide receiver reeled in 14 catches for 104 yards on offense while churning out 539 yards on kick and punt returns last season. Sims will likely operate in a similar role with the Texans in 2023.

  • Steven Sims: Allowed to hit open market

    The Steelers didn't tender an offer to Sims as a restricted free agent Wednesday, Alan Saunders of reports.

    Sims played 284 offensive snaps last season, seeing his role grow following the Chase Claypool trade, but he finished the year with just 14 catches for 104 scoreless yards. He'll look to compete for a job on some other team's roster this summer.

  • Steelers' Steven Sims: Racks up 16 yards in win

    Sims rushed once for 16 yards during the Steelers' 28-14 win over the Browns on Sunday.

    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.

  • Steelers' Steven Sims: Tallies 34 receiving yards

    Sims secured three of four targets for 34 yards during the Steelers' 16-13 win over the Ravens on Sunday.

    Sims matched his highest target total of the season during Sunday's primetime matchup, and he racked up a season-high 34 yards, highlighted by a 28-yard reception late in the fourth quarter. Although the 25-year-old's production has remained inconsistent, he's now had double-digit yards from scrimmage over the last five games, and he's secured nine of 13 targets for 81 yards while rushing six times for 39 yards during that time.

  • Steelers' Steven Sims: Logs 29 yards from scrimmage

    Sims secured one of two targets for 10 yards while rushing twice for 19 yards during the Steelers' 24-16 win over Carolina on Sunday.

    Sims totaled 31 yards during last week's loss to the Ravens and fell just short of that mark against the Panthers, but it was still encouraging to see him slightly more involved in Pittsburgh's offense. He's played at least 43 percent of the team's offensive snaps in three of the last five weeks but remains a lackluster fantasy option at this point.

  • Steelers' Steven Sims: Tallies four receptions in Week 14

    Sims secured all four of his targets for 30 yards while rushing once for one yard during the Steelers' 16-14 loss to Baltimore on Sunday.

    Sims had three carries during last week's win over Atlanta, and he logged a season-high five touches during Sunday's narrow loss while also playing a season-high 47 percent of the Steelers' offensive snaps. While it's been encouraging to see Sims' playing time increase over the last few weeks, he hasn't been consistent enough to warrant fantasy consideration in most formats.

  • Steelers' Steven Sims: Logs three carries in win

    Sims rushed three times for 19 yards while failing to secure either of his two targets during the Steelers' 19-16 win over Atlanta on Sunday.

    Sims averaged a team-high 6.3 yards per carry during Sunday's matchup, but he didn't have enough volume to provide much fantasy value. He's played at least 34 percent of the snaps in the four games following Pittsburgh's Week 9 bye but has had limited touches, as he's secured just three of nine targets for 24 yards while rushing six times for 18 yards during that time.

  • Steelers' Steven Sims: Offering little sans Claypool

    Sims was targeted three times and recorded two catches for nine yards in Monday's 24-17 win over the Colts.

    Even though the Nov. 1 trade that sent Chase Claypool to the Bears has opened up more work for Sims, he's still had to split the No. 3 receiver role with Gunner Olszewski, while Diontae Johnson and George Pickens have been every-down players. In the three games since the Claypool trade, Sims has produced a modest 3-24-0 receiving line on seven targets.

  • Steelers' Steven Sims: Likely in line for increased role

    Sims will likely have more opportunities to pick up snaps out of the slot going forward after Chase Claypool was traded to the Bears on Tuesday, Brooke Pryor of reports.

    Sims drew a season-high three targets during Sunday's loss to the Eagles but managed minus-1 yard on two receptions while rushing twice for 21 yards. He's mainly returned kicks for the Steelers when available early in the season, but head coach Mike Tomlin said Wednesday that Sims should see additional work on offense after Claypool was traded. The Steelers have a Week 9 bye, so Sims will have an additional week to prepare for his new role in the team's offense. However, given that he's drawn just three targets over three games this season, it's unclear whether Sims will see enough volume in the passing game to be a fantasy-relevant player over the second half of the year.
