  • Isaiah McKenzie Continues To Stand Out

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie has been one of the standouts of the team's training camp to this point. He's been with the team since 2018 and has slowly worked himself into more significant roles over the years. "Job's up for grabs," McKenzie said of the slot receiver role. "Jamison Crowder came in, and he's had a great career. He came in to compete with me, and I came back to compete with him. I know it wasn't going to be easy, and I know it's not easy now." McKenzie has done everything he can to lead the competition with Crowder missing five of the first eight practices. The 27-year-old has a good chance to be one of quarterback Josh Allen's trusted aerial targets, although he may not actually be worth a draft pick in fantasy until it's official that he's won the job over Crowder.

  • Isaiah McKenzie Has Taken A Step Forward

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie seems to have taken a step forward, and he has a big opportunity this year with veteran slot man Cole Beasley now gone. McKenzie is contending with Jamison Crowder for the starting slot job, and he has continued his improvement early in training camp. With Crowder out the last three practices with "general soreness," it has allowed McKenzie to maximize his repetitions with quarterback Josh Allen. McKenzie's route-running has taken a step up, as has his savvy to find soft spots in the defense. The 27-year-old has plenty of speed to spare, but his deceptiveness could allow him to take the next step. He'll need to continue to stand out when the pads go on this weekend, but if Crowder keeps missing practice and McKenzie keeps playing well, McKenzie could win the slot job rather quickly.

  • Isaiah McKenzie Getting First-Team Reps

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie opened Bills training camp by getting "virtually all the first-team reps" as the team's slot receiver, according to Greg Tompsett. McKenzie will be battling with Jamison Crowder for slot duties, but it seems like a good sign the 27-year-old is getting the first crack in training camp. McKenzie saw just 26 targets during the 2021 season, which turned into 20 receptions for 178 yards and one touchdown while adding nine carries for 47 yards and a score. Even if he does earn the role of starting slot wide receiver heading into Week 1, the speedster will be competing with Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, and Dawson Knox for targets. Still, Crowder has shown he can be a capable slot receiver so he shouldn't be ignored just yet. As of now, McKenzie is a late-round dart throw in fantasy drafts.
