WR - BUF
Week 3 Outlook
Despite seeing only one target in the Bills' Week 2 rout of the Raiders, Khalil Shakir made the most of his opportunity, hauling in an 11-yard touchdown pass from Josh Allen.
The 23-year-old wideout, currently ranked as WR50 for the week and WR76 for the season, showed his potential in a limited role. His touchdown came in the second quarter, a short middle pass from Allen that Shakir took to the house, contributing to the Bills' dominant 38-10 victory. While his season stats are identical to his game stats due to this being his only target and reception so far, Shakir's performance could earn him more looks in the future, especially next week against the Washington Commanders. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on Shakir's usage in the Bills' high-powered offense.
Khalil Shakir caught his lone target for 10 yards in a 24-10 win over the Patriots.
Shakir has just three catches over his last four games. The 22-year-old rookie is not seeing enough of the field to be fantasy viable right now. Fantasy managers should feel comfortable leaving Shakir on the waiver wire.
Khalil Shakir caught one of two targets for 14 yards in the Bills' 24-20 Week 6 win over the Chiefs.
Shakir operated as more of a WR4 for the Bills Sunday, finishing behind Stefon Diggs, Gabe Davis, and Isaiah McKenzie in targets and routes run against an above average Chiefs defense. The wideout will be hard to trust for fantasy managers when the Bills come out of their Week 7 bye. Keep Shakir on waivers until further notice.
Khalil Shakir caught three passes for 75 yards and a touchdown in Week 5.
Shakir saw an increased role with both Jamison Crowder and Isaiah McKenzie dealing with injuries. Shakir had competition but seemed to be the go-to third receiver for the Bills' offense with the depth getting thinner at WR. Crowder is already out for a good amount of time, but if McKenzie missed more time as well then Shakir could be worth a pickup ahead of a Week 6 game against Kansas City.
WR Khalil Shakir, a rookie for the Buffalo Bills, was listed among the team's inactives for Thursday's NFL-opening football game.
A rookie out of Boise State, Shakir's NFL debut will have to wait at least one more week. Shakir's absence wasn't expected, but this means he was likely just out of the rotation. The expectation can be an uptick in production for slot WRs Isaiah McKenize and Jamison Crowder.
