Dion Sims Fantasy Football News 2020

Bears TE Adam Shaheen left the field on a cart Saturday night after hurting his right ankle against the Broncos. The fear is a potential fracture, though HC Matt Nagy said "I don't think so" when asked whether Shaheen had broken a bone. The 2nd-year TE is headed for more testing Sunday morning, according to the Chicago Tribune. Shaheen won't be much of a fantasy factor even if he emerges OK, but he could siphon some red-zone looks from TE Trey Burton in 2-TE alignments. We'll keep an eye on this situation.

Bears TE Dion Sims (illness) is inactive for today’s game against the Lions. Daniel Brown and Adam Shaheen will again share TE duties for Chicago. Neither is a recommended fantasy play.

Bears TE Dion Sims (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He didn’t practice all week after missing last weekend’s game. Sims shouldn’t be in your fantasy plans.

Bears TE Dion Sims (illness) is inactive for today's game against the Packers. With TE Zach Miller out for the year, Chicago is left with Adam Shaheen, Daniel Brown and Ben Braunecker at TE. None of these guys are Week 10 fantasy options.

Bears HC John Fox confirmed on Monday that WR Kevin White is headed to the IR with a fractured scapula suffered in Week 1. It sounds like he's done for the season (and not a candidate for the "designated-to-return" spot). White will be 26 years old and have played in just 5 NFL games when the 2018 season kicks off. His dynasty stock is fading fast. Chicago is now left with Kendall Wright, Markus Wheaton and Deonte Thompson at WR. We could see TEs Zach Miller and Dion Sims and RB Tarik Cohen play big passing-game roles the rest of the way.

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs says "don't be surprised" if TE Zach Miller doesn't crack the Bears' final roster. This actually makes plenty of sense. The Bears are rebuilding on offense and might not want to give snaps to an injury-prone 32-year-old. They also gave $10 million guaranteed to TE Dion Sims in free agency and drafted TE Adam Shaheen in the 2nd round of this year's draft. The team is also high on TE Daniel Brown, according to Biggs. This is a group to stay away from in fantasy drafts right now.

The Bears nabbed Ashland TE Adam Shaheen with the 45th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. Shaheen becomes the 4th player in NFL history drafted from Ashland. He dominated there, totaling 127 catches, 1,670 yards and 26 TDs over the past 2 seasons. Then he proved he belongs in the NFL by testing as a 68th percentile athlete for his position. The 6’6, 278-pounder clocked a 4.79-second 40 time — impressive for such a big dude — and was even better with a 121-inch broad jump and 7.09-second 3-cone. Shaheen joins QB Mitchell Trubisky in Chicago but is a long shot for 2017 fantasy value. We’ll see if the Bears hang on to TE Zach Miller after adding TE Dion Sims in free agency.

The Bears have added TE Dion Sims on a 3-year, $18 million deal, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. That's a hefty chunk of change for a guy with just 74 catches through 4 NFL seasons. Sims was never Miami's lead TE, though. The contract suggests the Bears see Sims as just that. TE Zach Miller is still on Chicago's roster, but he's 32 with a lengthy injury history.

The Dolphins have placed TE Jordan Cameron on IR with the concussion that had already cost him 4 games. That elevates Dion Sims to the lead TE job going forward. He has yet to top 4 targets in any game this season, though, and has only caught more than 1 pass once. Ignore Miami TEs until they give you a reason to pay attention. Cameron will hit free agency in March, heading into his age-29 season.

Dolphins TEs Jordan Cameron and Dion Sims remain out with their concussions. That should only mean more short-range targets for WR Jarvis Landry in Sunday’s plus matchup against the Jets.

Dolphins TEs Jordan Cameron (concussion) and Dion Sims (concussion) are both out for Sunday’s game against the Bills. That leaves Miami with TEs MarQueis Gray and Dominique Jones. Neither is a fantasy option.

Dolphins TE Dion Sims is in the league's concussion protocol. He'd been filling in for TE Jordan Cameron, who's missed the last 3 games with a concussion of his own. Miami is now down to MarQueis Gray and Dominique Jones at TE. Ignore the situation in fantasy lineups.

Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game against the Titans. There’s no timetable for his return. Dion Sims will serve as Miami’s lead TE but shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups.

Dolphins HC Adam Gase ruled out TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) for Week 4. Cameron suffered the 4th concussion of his NFL career on Sunday and might be looking at a lengthy absence. Dion Sims will step in as Miami's lead TE. Cincinnati has struggled against TEs recently, but Sims will be just a low-end TE2 for Week 4.

Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron sustained a concussion in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Browns. He has a long history of head injuries -- including at least 3 as a pro -- and might be looking at an extended absence. That'd leave Dion Sims as Miami's lead TE.

Dolphins TE Dion Sims left Sunday's opener with a head injury.  He was motionless on the field for a few minutes and had to be carted off.  He'll be evaluated for a concussion and is very unlikely to return.  It leaves Jordan Cameron as Miami's only TE.

As expected, Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee, hamstring) is inactive for tonight's game against the Jets.  Dion Sims will start in his place and is an interesting fantasy flier in a matchup with the league's #31 TE defense.

Dolphins TE Charles Clay (hamstring, knee) is doubtful for Monday night's game against the Jets.  There was early-week optimism that he'd play, so it looks like he suffered a setback.  TE Dion Sims hauled in 4 of 5 targets for 31 yards in Clay's absence last Sunday, but he'd be a desperation Week 13 fantasy play.

Dustin Keller's season-ending knee injury left the Dolphins with a gaping hole at TE.  Charles Clay is expected to open the season as the starter, but Dion Sims will be in the mix, too.  The rookie has "stepped up his game" and looks ready to make a "sudden impact," according to insider Andy Cohen.  Sims has been touted more for his blocking than pass-catching coming out of Michigan State, but he did haul in 36 balls for 475 yards this past year.  He at least looks like an intriguing possession receiver at 6'5 and 262 pounds.  Sims isn't worth a roster spot in redraft fantasy leagues yet, but we'll be keeping an eye on him early this season.  He could end up leading Dolphins TEs in receiving.

The Dolphins will give Charles Clay the 1st crack at replacing Dustin Keller as the starting TE.  “You’d have to give the nod to Clay as the starter,” OC Mike Sherman said. “He’ll play in a bunch of different packages. He’ll play in the backfield as well as on the line of scrimmage. He’ll play split out. He’ll do a lot of different things for us, and he’s more than capable.”  Clay spent his college career at Tulsa as a pass-catching FB.  He hauled in 189 balls across 4 seasons.  He's transitioned to a TE/H-Back hybrid in Miami.  The 6'3, 250-pounder has just 34 catches in his first 2 NFL seasons, although he's averaged 13.1 yards per and scored 5 times.  We've always been intrigued by Clay's playmaking ability at the position, but it's tough to imagine him emerging as a reliable fantasy option this year.  TEs Dion Sims and Michael Egnew will also see action for the Fins.
