Khalil Shakir Makes Welcome Return To Bills' Practice

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Khalil Shakir (lower body) returned to practice Wednesday after missing time due to a lower body injury. Shakir initially suffered the injury during minicamp. His recovery is crucial as he aims to secure a more prominent role in Buffalo's passing game, especially following the offseason departures of Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis. Shakir stands out as the only returning wide receiver who has caught a pass from quarterback Josh Allen in a game, showcasing his potential to become a key target. Last season, he impressed with 39 receptions for 611 yards and two touchdowns over 17 games. He is competing with rookie Keon Coleman, tight end Dalton Kincaid, and veteran Curtis Samuel for targets in Buffalo's passing game. With minimal competition for targets and established chemistry with Allen, Shakir presents significant value as a late-round pick in fantasy drafts, offering upside for those looking to round out their roster.

Khalil Shakir Expects To Be Full-Go For Training Camp

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Khalil Shakir (lower body) said he's all good and expects to be 100 percent healthy for the start of training camp at the end of July. Shakir suffered an undisclosed lower-body injury during minicamp practice earlier this week and didn't practice the rest of the week. However, it appears that the injury isn't serious and won't keep him off the field for the start of training camp. Now that both Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis aren't in Buffalo, the 24-year-old former fifth-round pick in 2022 will have an increased role in the Bills' passing attack in 2024 after finishing the 2023 season off on a strong note. Still, Shakir has a ways to go to become relevant in standard-sized fantasy leagues after catching 39 passes for 611 yards and only two touchdowns in 17 regular-season games (10 starts) in his second NFL campaign in 2023.

Khalil Shakir Injured During Practice

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Khalil Shakir (lower body) walked off the field after suffering an injury during the early portion of 7-on-7 drills Tuesday, per Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN. Shakir briefly stood on the sideline with a trainer before leaving the field. This is a significant development for Buffalo given that Shakir was competing for a starting role after the departures of Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis this offseason. The Boise State product showed flashes of potential in 2023, including over the final three weeks of the campaign when he caught all 13 of his targets for 189 receiving yards. Fantasy managers should monitor his injury status going forward, though he's not a super appealing option in typical 12-team redraft leagues anyway.

Khalil Shakir Scores, Bolsters 2024 Sleeper Case

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Khalil Shakir (shoulder) overcame a shoulder injury to close out Sunday's 27-24 Divisional Round defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs, tallying team highs in receptions (seven) and targets (nine) with 44 yards and a touchdown. Shakir made an impressive 13-yard catch for a score in the front corner of the end zone late in the third quarter before heading to the locker room, but he returned after just a handful of missed plays. Proving to be a very capable producer when granted opportunities, the 23-year-old second-year wideout hauled in 49 of his 57 targets for 686 yards (12.0 yards per target) and four touchdowns overall this year. Perhaps more versed in supplying efficiency than erratic field stretcher Gabe Davis (knee), Shakir will sport a compelling late-round fantasy-flier case in 2024 drafts with Davis headed for unrestricted free agency and Stefon Diggs turning 31 years old in November.

Khalil Shakir Returns To Sunday's Game

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Khalil Shakir (shoulder) returned to Sunday's meeting with the Kansas City Chiefs. He suffered a shoulder injury in the fourth quarter. However, after getting checked out in the locker room, he's back in the game. The update is undoubtedly good news for Buffalo, considering the wideout had a team-high six grabs while scoring a touchdown before exiting.

Khalil Shakir Suffers Shoulder Injury

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Khalil Shakir (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's postseason clash with the Chiefs. Gabe Davis (knee) wasn't active for this one, so Shakir took advantage by leading the team with six catches for 34 yards. He also had a touchdown. Kansas City has held Stefon Diggs in check throughout the contest, which could mean more targets for Trent Sherfield and Dalton Kincaid for the rest of the night.

Khalil Shakir A Preferred DFS Budget Play

While Buffalo Bills wide receiver Khalil Shakir managed just three targets in last Monday's wild-card win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, he parlayed them into an efficient three catches for 31 yards and a touchdown. With Gabe Davis (knee) ruled out for Sunday's Divisional Round versus the Kansas City Chiefs, Shakir should once again fill in as Buffalo's No. 2 wideout behind top target Stefon Diggs. Shakir has gathered in all of his past 16 targets for 220 yards, stepping up for the Bills in a big way on numerous occasions when they've been short-handed since last year's rookie season. In eight games either without Davis or tight end Dawson Knox dating back to Oct. 2022 -- including Davis' Week 18 exit -- Shakir has made the most of his 35 targets with 29 catches for 546 yards and three scores. That checks out to a ridiculous 15.6 yards per target. Costing an inexpensive $3,800 on DraftKings, Shakir sets up as a rather chalky DFS play and preferable salary-relief option.

Khalil Shakir Sinks Pittsburgh With Late Score

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Khalil Shakir capitalized on Gabe Davis' (knee) absence as the team topped the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-17 in Monday's wild-card action, catching all three of his targets for 31 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Josh Allen turned Shakir's way on his first pass of the evening, but the 23-year-old slot receiver initially took a backseat in an elevated role. That all changed when Shakir made a heads-up play by keeping his balance on a Minkah Fitzpatrick tackle attempt for a thrilling 17-yard catch-and-run score midway through the fourth quarter to give the Bills a commanding 31-17 cushion. While the three looks were a bit disappointing, Shakir provided excellent value for those who played him in DFS at nearly DraftKings' minimum cost and demonstrated why he was quietly one of the league's more efficient wideouts this year. Shakir's Divisional Round outlook will closely hinge upon Davis' availability next Sunday.

Khalil Shakir Set For Every-Down Role Monday

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Khalil Shakir made a bit of a name for himself in his second season. Shakir found a home in the slot for the Bills, leading the team with 398 slot snaps alongside perimeter threats Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis (knee) and forming quite the connection with quarterback Josh Allen. Vacuuming up 39 of his 45 passes for 611 yards and two touchdowns, the 23-year-old former fifth-rounder paced the NFL's qualifying wideouts with both a pristine 86.6% catch rate as well as a hyper-efficient 13.1 yards per target. That should go a long way in earning Allen's trust as a bankable secondary option behind alpha target Diggs, and Shakir is in line to function as Buffalo's No. 2 wideout with Davis out for Super Wild Card Weekend on Monday versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. Frigid temperatures could hamper Buffalo's passing game, but Shakir's $3,400 DraftKings salary may be too valuable to pass up on as a DFS budget play.

Khalil Shakir Steps Up In Division-Clinching Win

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Khalil Shakir led the team with 105 yards in Sunday night's division-clinching 21-14 road victory over the Miami Dolphins, reeling in each of his six targets. Shakir was tasked with an every-down role in the aftermath of Gabe Davis' (knee) injury in the first half, and he stepped up for the Bills in a big way. Shakir's highlight of the night arrived when he took a short pass for a 46-yard catch-and-run along the sideline in the first quarter. The 23-year-old former fifth-rounder has proven to be fairly productive when given the opportunity in 2023, and he could act as Buffalo's No. 2 wideout behind top target Stefon Diggs if Davis isn't able to overcome his knee issue by the time next Sunday's wild-card meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers rolls around.
