Bears' Dion Sims: Targeted three times in Sunday victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims caught two passes for 32 yards in Chicago's Week 14 victory over the Bengals.

Even though Sims saw just one fewer target than Adam Shaheen, he helped the Bears move the chains with a pair of grabs that netted at least 13 yards each. He's caught more than two passes in a game just once all season, and this was the second time all year that he's exceeded 17 yards, making him a low-upside fantasy option.

Bears' Dion Sims: Another quiet outing in Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims caught one of two targets for five yards in Sunday's 15-14 loss to the 49ers.

Sims saw two of the three targets that Mitchell Trubisky threw to his tight ends, as Chicago attempted only 15 passes. With a total of 17 yards over his last four games and only one game with more than 17 yards on the season, he doesn't get enough volume to be a reliable fantasy option.

Bears' Dion Sims: Active Sunday vs. Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Sims missed the Bears' last two games while battling a fairly serious illness, but he took part in all of the team's practices in some capacity this week, resulting in him gaining clearance to play. Prior to missing time while he was under the weather, Sims was the top backup to Zach Miller, who has since been shut down for the season after suffering a gruesome knee injury Oct. 29 against the Saints. A starting role could await for Sims, but he may have to settle for sharing duties at tight end with rookie Adam Shaheen, who hauled in six passes for 80 yards and a touchdown over the last two weeks.

Bears' Dion Sims: Back to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims (illness) was a full practice participant Friday but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Philadelphia.

After missing every practice and both games the past two weeks, Sims returned as a limited participant Wednesday and repeated the feat Thursday. His step forward Friday suggests he's on track for Sunday, though it shouldn't be assumed until the Bears release their inactive list at approximately 11:30 a.m. ET on Sunday. With rookie second-round pick Adam Shaheen looking good in Sims' absence, the veteran may find himself sharing snaps and targets, just as he did when Zach Miller (knee) was healthy.

Bears' Dion Sims: Returns to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims (illness) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

A mystery illness has kept Sims away from the field for two games, but his return in some capacity Wednesday indicates he's beginning to regain his health. He would help himself by getting through the week unscathed, but his absence has paved the way for the emergence of rookie tight end Adam Shaheen, who has hauled in all six targets for 80 yards and one touchdown during that span. Once he's cleared to play again, it's unclear what kind of snap count Sims can expect.
