Steven Sims Player Overview

What You Need to Know:

  • Sims turned 40 targets into a 23-259-4 line as Washington’s slot receiver over the final 5 games of last season.
  • He ranked 15th among WRs in PPR points during that stretch.
  • Quinn will battle Trey Quinn for that starting slot job in 2020.

2019 in review

Only 15 WRs caught more balls than Sims over the final 5 weeks of last season. And only 14 scored more PPR points.

Trey Quinn’s season-ending concussion in Week 13 moved Sims into the starting slot role. He played 58% of Washington’s offensive snaps in Week 13 and then 63+% in each of the final 4 games. Sims garnered a big 30.3% target share across that 5-game stretch.

But that was largely because Redskins QBs had little else to work with. No Jordan Reed. No Vernon Davis. No Paul Richardson. Even Terry McLaurin missed the season finale.

And it’s not like Sims was efficient. He hauled in just 57.5% of his targets and averaged 11.3 yards per catch over those final 5 games. His 6.5 yards per target ranked 52nd among 67 WRs with 20+ targets in that stretch. Sims ranked 30th in that group in yards per target and 37th in Pro Football Focus’ receiving grades.

Prospect profile

Still, it was a nice finish to the season for an undrafted free agent. The Kansas product caught 214 balls for 2,582 yards (12.1 YPC) and 19 TDs over his 4-year college career, leading the Jayhawks in catches and receiving yards in each of his final 3 seasons. The 5’9, 184-pounder didn’t work out at last year’s Combine and disappointed at his Pro Day, clocking a 4.56-second 40 time with a 31.5-inch vertical.

2020 outlook

There’s plenty of opportunity in Washington’s WR corps heading into 2020. Terry McLaurin is locked into a starting spot. 2019 sixth-rounder Kelvin Harmon returns, and the Redskins added Antonio Gandy-Golden in the 4th round of this year’s draft. Those guys figure to battle for the other outside spot opposite McLaurin. That leav…
