Denzel Mims signs to Steelers practice squad

The Steelers are signing WR Denzel Mims to the practice squad.

Fantasy Impact

Mims was waived with an injury settlement by the Lions in August. He figures to be a depth receiver for the Steelers.

Denzel Mims waived with injury settlement Thursday

Denzel Mims has been waived by the Lions due to injury, and he will be a free agent pending his clearance of waivers, according to Field Yates.

Fantasy Impact

Mims came to Detroit thanks to a trade with the Jets in July, but the cost was only a conditional pick. The Lions seem to be moving on before the former second-round pick even sees the field. Mims has 42 career catches, totaling 676 yards in 30 games. Time will tell if another team gives the Baylor product another chance elsewhere once he has healed up.

Denzel Mims waived by Lions Friday

The Detroit Lions waived injured WR Denzel Mims Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Mims injured his ankle at practice which then became a calf injury while rehabbing. He impressed Lions coaches in camp, so it is possible that he could return in the future or latch on with another team when he is fully healthy.

Denzel Mims: Campbell terse in response to WR's offseason

According to Colton Pouncy of The Athletic, Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell was short in his response to how WR Denzel Mims has performed this offseason, saying, "He's in there, he's in the room."

Fantasy Impact

Mims was traded to the Lions about a month ago, but he has been out since early August with an injury. Campbell's response to Mims' performance wasn't promising for a player who struggled to see consistent playing time with the New York Jets despite his second-round draft capital, seeing a decrease in snaps every year of his career. Mims looks to turn it around with new scenery for Year 4, but Campbell seemed uncertain about when he will return, saying, "We'll see, we'll see. I wish I could give you more."

Denzel Mims traded to Detroit Wednesday

The Detroit Lions have acquired Denzel Mims from the New York Jets. Detroit will send a conditional sixth-round pick in exchange for a seventh-round pick in 2025.

Fantasy Impact

Mims was set to be waived or traded after being excused from practice by the team Wednesday. With Jameson Williams suspended to begin the season, Mims should have plenty of opportunities to see the field early on. Mims did not produce much during his three seasons with the Jets, but also was not given much of an opportunity after his rookie campaign. Fantasy managers will want to see how he lines up in camp as he could be worth a late round flier.
