Washington Football Team WR Steven Sims has the skills to serve as the 'Z' receiver in offensive coordinator Scott Turner's system, according to Mark Bullock of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: Terry McLaurin is the top target in the Washington passing attack, but the rest of the depth chart is a work in progress, especially with Kelvin Harmon out for the year. Sims is worth a look as a late-round lottery ticket in case he emerges as a starter.

Washington Redskins WR Steven Sims said he has been training this offseason to 'play maybe 90 plays in a game' and is eyeing a bigger and more versatile role in the offense. 'I want to show that I can run routes as well. I'm not just a gadget player. I'm a receiver, and I run routes,' Sims said.
Huddle Up: Sims will be competing with Kelvin Harmon, Cody Latimer and rookie Antonio Gandy-Golden for the No. 2 role behind Terry McLaurin. There should be plenty of targets available in the Dwayne Haskins-led offense, and Sims could warrant a late-round flier in deeper leagues.

Washington Redskins WR Steven Sims is the leading candidate for the slot receiver job this upcoming season but could be pushed by RB/WR Antonio Gibson for some snaps.
Huddle Up: Sims posted 310 yards and four touchdowns this past season and should be a solid target for the quarterback again in 2020. Fantasy players in point-per-reception leagues could consider Sims in the later rounds, but he probably will be avoided in most standard leagues.
