Bears' Dion Sims: Still in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims remains in the concussion protocol Friday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Sims has been in the concussion protocol for about two weeks. With fellow tight end Adam Shaheen sidelined indefinitely following a right foot/ankle injury sustained in the Bears' preseason game against the Broncos, Sims could make the 53-man roster as a backup to starter Trey Burton if he can clear the concussion protocol in due time. A solid blocker but yet to reach 300 receiving yards in his career, Sims is a long shot for fantasy relevancy in 2018.

Bears' Dion Sims: Still on team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims remained on the Bears' roster after March 16, at which point $4 million of his $6 million salary became guaranteed.

Sims seemed like a goner once the Bears added Trey Burton to a tight end group that includes 2017 second-round pick Adam Shaheen. There's no question Burton will serve as the top pass catcher among the bunch, but Sims' continued presence on the roster suggests Chicago brass isn't entirely confident in Shaheen's ability to take on the in-line blocking role. Sims is a solid blocker, one who's yet to reach 300 receiving yards in a season since entering the league as a fourth-round pick of the Dolphins in 2013.

Bears' Dion Sims: Could be cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims may be released this offseason, Patrick Finley of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Signed to a three-year, $18 million contract last offseason, Sims started all 14 games he played but only caught 15 of 29 targets for 180 yards and a touchdown. He's primarily valued for his blocking, which probably isn't enough to justify a $6 million salary in 2018. Barring an agreement on a pay cut, the Bears figure to release Sims before March 16 when $4 million of the $6 million would become guaranteed. The team would prefer for 2017 second-round pick Adam Shaheen to take over as the starter, but Daniel Brown or an offseason addition could also be in the mix. The 27-year-old Sims wouldn't have too much trouble finding backup work elsewhere.

Bears' Dion Sims: Targeted once in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims failed to catch his only target in the season finale against the Vikings, finishing the year with 15 receptions for 180 yards and one touchdown.

Sims functioned as the primary blocking tight end for the Bears, and he should continue to function in a full-time role as he enters the second year of a three-year contract in 2018. However, the Bears will likely expect Adam Shaheen to emerge as the primary receiving tight end, so unless Shaheen struggles or gets injured, it's unlikely that Sims becomes a consistent fantasy option.

Bears' Dion Sims: Catches one pass in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims caught one pass for nine yards in the Bears' Week 15 loss to the Lions.

As often is the case, Sims primarily served as a blocker, and he was only targeted a single time despite Mitchell Trubisky throwing the football 46 times. With 15 or fewer yards in five of his last six games, he hasn't been a strong fantasy option this year.
