TE - FA
Week 13 Outlook
After being out of the league in 2019, Dion Sims has announced on Twitter that he is retiring after playing six seasons in the NFL.
Sims was originally drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft and played his final two seasons with Chicago Bears. For his career, the veteran tight end complied 91 receptions for 888 yards and nine touchdowns.
Dion Sims caught his only target for nine yards against the Lions.
Sims saw more game-action because of Adam Shaheen's injury but obviously wasn't at all involved in the offense. If Shaheen misses next week, too, then Sims will have to be at least in the discussion of a potential streaming option against a Cleveland defense that simply can't defend tight ends.
Dion Sims caught two passes for 32 yards on Sunday against the Bengals.
Sims continue to be a non factor in the passing game, as the Bears rely on him as blocker for their strong running game. Sims has zero fantasy relevance, and should be left on waivers.
Dion Sims caught one pass for negative three yards against the Eagles.
Sims returned after missing the last two weeks due to illness. His return was not a pleasant one, as he only saw one target. His addition hurts all of the Bears tight ends, as none of them will be fantasy relevant going forward.
Dion Sims has missed practice all week with an illness, and is now questionable to suit up on Sunday against the Packers.
The Bears lost Zach Miller for the season in Week 8, and now could be without Sims. While this is just an illness for him, he still has a realistic shot to play on Sunday. If he does sit out, Shaheen will become an every down player for the Bears, and a sneaky DFS punt. It sounds like Sims will be a true game time decision.
