Wims could compete for the No. 3 receiver spot in training camp, but he may also be on the roster bubble, Kevin Fishbain and Adam Jahns of The Athletic report.
The Bears will likely have an open competition for snaps behind Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller, with Wims, Ted Ginn, Cordarrelle Patterson, Riley Ridley and Darnell Mooney all in the mix. Wims made six starts last season, but he averaged only 26.8 yards in those games and finished the year with 18 catches for 186 yards and one touchdown on 39 targets. Ginn and Patterson have more experience, while Ridley and Mooney are backed by more draft capital. A poor showing at training camp could push Wims off the roster.
Wims caught three passes for 23 yards in the Bears' 21-19 win over the Vikings in Week 17, and he ended the season with 18 receptions for 186 yards and one score.
Wims made six starts when Taylor Gabriel missed time with a pair of concussions, but Wims had just two games with more than 26 yards while failing to surpass 56 yards in any contest. However, he served as the third option in a low-volume passing attack, so his lack of production may have had much to do with the situation instead of his ability. He's signed through 2021, and he should have a chance to compete for a starting position opposite Allen Robinson next summer. Regardless, it's unlikely he'll be drafted as anything more than a depth option in 2020 drafts.
Wims caught three passes for 26 yards in the Bears' 26-3 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
Wims saw regular playing time for the fifth-straight game while Taylor Gabriel recovers from a concussion, but he's averaged fewer than 20 yards per game during that span. He won't carry much upside into a Week 17 battle against the Vikings.
Wims (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.
Wims only practiced Friday in a limited fashion, but he's ready to go. The second-year wideout will rotate with Cordarrelle Patterson for the No. 3 wideout role behind Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller. Through the last four games, Wims has hauled in six of 13 targets for 57 scoreless yards.
Wims (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Green Bay.
Wims appears truly questionable, with a limited practice Friday representing his only participation of the week. Taylor Gabriel (concussion) has already been ruled out, so an absence for Wims would free up receiver snaps for Cordarrelle Patterson and Riley Ridley behind top targets Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller.
Wims (knee) did not participate in Thursday's practice.
Despite only having a "slight" knee sprain, Wims doesn't seem to be trending toward playing in Week 15, as he hasn't been able to practice yet. If he's able to go Friday, however, his chances will start looking up.
Wims only suffered a slight knee sprain in Thursday's win over the Cowboys, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Wims' injury isn't deemed to be major. However, a recovery timeline has yet to be announced. Having played on Thursday, the 25-year-old has the benefit of a few extra days to heal before the Bears take on Green Bay in Week 15.
Wims is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Cowboys with a knee injury.
Wims was injured during an attempted catch late in the second quarter. The injury appeared to be non-contact, meaning there is a chance it could be serious. Riley Ridley figures to log more routes as long as Wims is out.
Wims secured five of six targets for 56 yards in the Bears' 24-20 win over the Lions on Thursday.
The second-year wideout was rather surprisingly an active No. 3 option in the passing game with Taylor Gabriel (concussion) out of action. Wims' reception total was a career high, while his yardage tally tied a career best. Wims could have some deep-league and DFS value again in a Week 14 battle against the Cowboys next Thursday night if Gabriel remains sidelined.
Wims was targeted twice but failed to record a reception in the Bears' 19-14 victory over the Giants on Sunday.
Wims has caught more than one pass just a single time this season and won't be considered a fantasy factor unless his role in the offense increases.
Wims recorded an 11-yard reception in the Bears' 17-7 loss to the Rams on Sunday.
Wims was targeted twice, giving him a total of 12 on the season, and he'd need to move up the depth chart before being considered a useful fantasy option.
Wims hauled in a six-yard touchdown in Chicago's 36-25 loss to the Saints on Sunday.
Wims wasn't targeted until the last possession of the game when the contest was completely out of hand. Fortunately, he turned his only opportunity into a touchdown. With just six receptions on the season, he would need injuries to the Bears' wide receiver group in order to see more consistent involvement in the offense.
Wims was targeted once, but didn't post a reception in the Bears' 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.
Wims continued to sub for Taylor Gabriel, who missed his second straight game with a concussion. If Gabriel returns to action after the Week 6 bye, Wims will see very limited snaps in most games, and it's unlikely he'll be a useful fantasy option.
Wims hauled in four passes for 56 yards in the Bears' 16-6 win over the Vikings on Sunday.
Wims saw significant action with Taylor Gabriel missing this game with a concussion and he ended the game with five targets, which was good for second on the team. It appeared as if he was going to have a very quiet performance, but when Chase Daniel saw him in single coverage down the right sideline, they connected on a 37-yard pass play to give him a respectable fantasy day. Should Gabriel be forced to miss more time, Wims may be a fantasy option who can be used in a pinch, especially during bye weeks. But when Gabriel is healthy, Wims likely won't produce enough to be on fantasy rosters.
Wims caught one pass for eight yards in the Bears' 31-15 win over Washington on Monday.
Wims caught his lone pass on the last drive of the game while the Bears were closing out a double-digit victory. With just three targets over three games, he's a player who'll need injuries to other wide receivers to have increased fantasy value.
Wims failed to record a reception in Chicago's 10-3 loss to Green Bay on Thursday.
Wims saw playing time in the second half when the Bears were trying to mount a comeback, but he was unable to connect with Mitch Trubisky on either of his two targets. For now, he doesn't project to see much volume in the Chicago passing attack, giving him very little fantasy value.
Wims caught one pass for three yards in the Bears' win over the Colts.
Wims got the start, but didn't spend much time on the field, as the deep reserves handled most of the on-field duties in this contest. He's been competing for a depth role on the 53-man roster, and his fate should be announced soon.
Wims caught five passes for 64 yards in the Bears' preseason loss to the Giants on Friday.
Wims was one of the only Chicago players to have an impressive outing in the team's second preseason contest, and he was also the most-targeted wide receiver on the team. Although he doesn't project to be a starter, he's currently fifth on the depth chart and competing for a spot on the 53-man roster.
Wims caught two of three targets for 15 yards in Thursday night's 23-13 preseason loss to the Panthers.
Wims' pair of catches both came from backup quarterback Chase Daniel during the second quarter. His second reception helped the Bears move down the field on a touchdown drive, marking a nice contribution as he seeks to make the roster this preseason.
Wims looked good during offseason workouts and appears primed to compete for a role on offense, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.
The 2018 seventh-round pick led the NFL with 227 receiving yards last preseason, earning a spot on Chicago's 53-man roster throughout the year. He was active for four contests, including a four-catch, 35-yard outing Week 17 against Minnesota. The path to a meaningful role in 2019 appears difficult after the Bears bolstered their wideout depth with the signing of Cordarrelle Patterson and drafting of Riley Ridley, but there is some chance for Wims to make a push toward the No. 4 spot. Other candidates for depth roles include Marvin Hall, Emanuel Hall (sports hernia) and Tanner Gentry.
