Sims caught 27 of 37 targets for 265 yards and a touchdown in 12 regular-season games during the 2020 campaign.
Sims opened the year as Washington's No. 2 wide receiver, after scoring four TDs over the final three weeks of his 2019 rookie campaign. The team even experimented with giving him more snaps on the perimeter at the beginning of the season, but Sims moved back to the slot after a toe injury sent him to IR for Weeks 4-8. He then averaged just 3.2 targets and 18.0 receiving yards over his final nine games of the regular season, before catching three passes for 33 yards and a TD in the playoff loss to Tampa. The speedy young wideout is under contract for one more season, but he could face competition for a roster spot, as he struggled with ball security on punt returns and never quite established himself as a key part of the Washington offense.
Sims caught four of six targets for 52 yards in Sunday's 20-13 loss to Carolina.
Sims handled a larger-than-usual role with Terry McLaurin (ankle) inactive, but it was Cam Sims who led the team's wideouts with nine targets. Any fantasy upside for Steven in Week 17 depends on McLaurin missing another game, which won't necessarily happen.
Sims secured one of two targets for 11 yards during Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Seahawks.
The Kansas product has collected exactly one reception in three of his past four outings. Sims' only multi-catch performance in that span, Week 13 against Pittsburgh, yielded just 17 yards. Terry McLaurin (12 targets) and Cam Sims (eight) were the wideouts most involved in Washington's passing game against Seattle, while Steven (no relation) finished tied in a distant third in targets alongside Isaiah Wright. With nearly as many punt returns (21) as receptions (22) this season, Sims has a single touchdown and only one performance of more than 20 receiving yards since Week 2.
Sims caught one of three targets for five yards in Sunday's 23-15 win over the 49ers.
Cam Sims and Terry McLaurin both played more than 90 percent of snaps, while Steven Sims got 37 percent and Isaiah Wright took 27 percent . None of the bunch had more than two catches or 24 yards, as Alex Smith (calf) and Dwayne Haskins both struggled to get anything going. Washington won the game behind two defensive touchdowns, a formula that probably won't work in Week 15 against Seattle. Expect more of a contribution from the Washington passing offense in that contest, but this Sims isn't likely to be a central figure.
Sims secured four of six targets for 17 yards during Monday's 23-17 win against the Steelers. He also posted a nine-yard punt return.
Sims may have been held under 20 receiving yards for a third consecutive appearance, but his nine-yard third-down catch on Washington's opening drive of the second half helped situate the team for a touchdown that brought it within four points. Since returning from a toe injury Week 9, the 23-year-old has posted 2.8 receptions and 17.6 receiving yards per game with one TD over five appearances. Sims' six targets Monday tied a season high as he heads into a Week 14 matchup against San Francisco.
Sims reeled in his lone target for an eight-yard gain during Thursday's 41-16 win over the Cowboys. He added 15 yards on a pair of punt returns.
Sims secured his first touchdown of the 2020 campaign in Week 11 against Cincinnati, but it was a forgettable outing on Thanksgiving for the 23-year-old. He's been back in the lineup for four games after sitting out four contests with a toe injury between Weeks 4 and 7. The Kansas product has accumulated an efficient 10 receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets since his return from IR, as he now sets his sights on a Week 13 matchup against the Steelers' second-ranked pass defense.
Sims caught each of his three targets for 13 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-9 win over Cincinnati.
The touchdown was Sims' first of the season, but he played only 32 percent of offensive snaps, his third straight week below 50 percent since he returned from injured reserve. With Terry McLaurin and Cam Sims working as the starters in recent weeks, the remaining WR snaps have been split between Steven Sims, J.D. McKissic and Isaiah Wright. Things could become even more crowded if Dontrelle Inman (hamstring) makes it back for Thursday's game against Dallas.
Sims corralled five of six targets for 46 receiving yards during Sunday's 30-27 loss to Detroit.
Sims fumbled on Washington's penultimate drive of the first half, but teammate Cam Sims was able to fall on the loose ball. Week 10 marked Steven's second appearance back from a toe injury that cost him four games, with his impact being much greater Sunday compared to his one-catch, four-yard output in Week 9 against the Giants. Next, Sims will face a Bengals defense that is tied for the third-most receiving touchdowns allowed to opposing wideouts on the season (13).
Sims caught his lone target for a four-yard gain in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Giants.
After missing four straight games with a toe injury, Sims returned for Week 9 but played only 30 percent of the snaps on offense. He also had one punt return for 12 yards, while Danny Johnson handled the kick returns. It's possible Sims gets more work Week 10 at Detroit, but we haven't seen him in a significant role since mid-September.
Sims (toe) will be activated off injured reserve ahead of Sunday's game, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
The return of Sims couldn't come at a better time for the Washington passing attack considering Dontrelle Inman (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game, and Isaiah Wright has done little with the increased opportunities. Terry McLaurin still looms large as the team's true No. 1 option, but expect Sims to slot in right away, at least in three wide-receiver sets.
Sims (toe) appears likely to return from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's game against the Giants, as he's been a full practice participant throughout the week, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.
Coach Ron Rivera hasn't commented on the situation, but all other signs point to Sims being ready to play. Sims was a starter back in Weeks 1 and 2, but he came off the bench Week 3 and was placed on IR in early October. He could be reinstated to a starting job now that he's healthy, considering Dontrelle Inman (doubtful, hamstring) and Isaiah Wright haven't exactly set the world on fire.
Sims (toe) appeared to be a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.
Sims currently resides on injured reserve, which means the team won't list him on its daily practice reports this week. Based on Stackpole's report though, Sims appears to at least have a shot at playing in Sunday's game against the Giants. Dontrelle Inman and Isaiah Wright (shoulder) got most of the wideout snaps and targets behind Terry McLaurin over the past month while Sims was out, so there is a clear opening for him to reclaim a top-three role.
Sims (toe) is slated to practice Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
Sims, who hasn't played since Week 3, remains on injured reserve, but now that he's back at practice, Washington will have up to 21 days to activate the wide receiver. Prior to suffering his injury, the 23-year-old recorded six catches (on eight targets) for 103 yards in three games.
Sims (toe) may do some "running around" Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
It's unclear if Sims will take part in practice, or merely work out on the side, but he is eligible to be activated from IR this week, per Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post. If Sims does practice, Washington will open a 21-day window in which to bring him back to the active roster. He hasn't played since Week 3 due to a toe injury, but when he returns he'll be on the receiving end of passes from Kyle Allen and not Dwayne Haskins.
Washington placed Sims (toe) on injured reserve Friday.
The 23-year-old has been unable to practice since attempting to play through the toe injury Week 3. The move to IR will prevent Sims playing in any of Washington's next three games, making him ineligible to suit up again until at least Nov. 8 against the Giants. While Sims is sidelined, Dontrelle Inman (foot) should continue to work as Washington's No. 2 wideout, with Isaiah Wright the next man up.
Sims (toe) didn't practice Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
Meanwhile, fellow wide receivers Terry McLaurin (thigh) and Dontrelle Inman (foot) did what Sims could not: follow up a DNP on Wednesday with a limited session Thursday. Considering Sims hasn't practiced since Week 3, he appears to be in a tough spot ahead of Sunday's game versus the Rams. Friday's injury report may provide some clarity with his situation.
Sims (toe) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
Washington's top three wide receivers -- Sims, Terry McLaurin (thigh) and Dontrelle Inman (foot) -- all sat out Wednesday as the team prepares for a change at quarterback from Dwayne Haskins to Kyle Allen. Sims hasn't played since Week 3, so his practice status Thursday and Friday likely will be key to his potential to play Sunday against the Rams.
Sims (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Baltimore, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.
Sims tried to play through the toe injury last week but was limited to a season-low 36 percent snap share and zero targets in a 34-20 loss to the Browns. He hasn't practiced at all since that game, so it isn't clear he'll be back for Week 5 against the Rams. With Terry McLaurin (thigh) listed as questionable and looking like a game-time decision, Washington may be forced to rely on Dontrelle Inman, Isaiah Wright, Cam Sims and Antonio Gandy-Golden at wide receiver. As for special teams, options to replace Sims on kick and punt returns include Wright, RB Antonio Gibson, CB Greg Stroman and CB Danny Johnson. The depth chart on the team website lists Gibson as the next man up for kickoffs and Wright next in line for punts, but it was Stroman who fielded a punt when Sims was briefly pulled off those duties Week 2 at Arizona.
Sims (toe) wasn't seen at practice Friday, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.
The 23-year-old has yet to practice this week and appears unlikely to be available for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Friday's injury report should shed more light on Sims' availability, but he appears to be trending in the wrong direction heading into the weekend. Top-wideout Terry McLaurin (thigh) also is limited, which could open up opportunities for Dontrelle Inman and Isaiah Wright.
Sims (toe) won't participate in Thursday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
With back-to-back absences at practice to begin Week 4, Sims looks to be trending in the wrong direction as Sunday's game against the Ravens nears. He'll likely need to turn in at least a limited showing in Friday's practice to take a questionable designation into the weekend. Sims' production has been relatively muted through Washington's first three games, with the wideout hauling in six of seven targets for 103 yards.
