Steven Sims
23-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Undrafted out of Kansas last spring, Sims fought his way to a spot on Washington's 53-man roster, opening the season with a role on kick returns and a handful of snaps per game on offense. He scored a 65-yard touchdown on an end-around Week 5 and a 91-yard TD on a kick return Week 12, setting the stage for increased playing time once slot specialist Trey Quinn suffered a season-ending concussion in early December. Sims quickly proved to be an upgrade on Quinn, catching 20 of 36 targets for 230 yards and four TDs over the final four weeks of the season. The strong finish should make Sims the favorite for slot work in 2020, but that doesn't mean he won't have any competition - potentially from both Quinn and third-round pick Antonio Gibson. The team claims it wants to use Gibson out of the backfield, but his skill set could also translate to wide receiver, which happens to be a less crowded position in Washington. Of course, Sims can make it a moot point if he picks up where he left off in December. Read Past Outlooks

Facing competition for slot snaps
WRWashington Redskins
April 27, 2020
Sims will be joined by 2020 draft picks Antonio Gibson (third round) and Antonio Gandy-Golden (fourth round) in the Washington offense, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Gibson, in particular, could emerge as a threat to Sims, who went undrafted out of Kansas last year but emerged as a slot regular by the end of his rookie season. Gibson offers similar speed (4.39 40) in a much larger body (6-0, 228), and he split time between the slot and backfield at Memphis. On the other hand, Gibson didn't get significant playing time until his senior campaign, so Sims should have an advantage when it comes to route running and the mental aspect of the game. Meanwhile, Gandy-Golden figures to battle Kelvin Harmon for perimeter reps across from locked-in No. 1 receiver Terry McLaurin.
