  • Bills Bullish On Khalil Shakir

    The Buffalo Bills seem bullish on rookie fifth-round wide receiver Khalil Shakir's potential this year despite his status as a late-round draft pick. Shakir had six good practices in a row at training camp before a temporary lapse with multiple drops on Monday. However, the rookie bounced back in practice on Tuesday, showing his usual smooth route-running and footwork, and he played well in one-on-one work. The 22-year-old appears to be a lock to make the roster out of training camp and the preseason, but he's unlikely to be fantasy relevant in single-year leagues with Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, Isaiah McKenzie and veteran Jamison Crowder ahead of him on the depth chart. The Bills will likely continue to develop Shakir in a depth role in 2022.

  • Khalil Shakir May Struggle To Make An Impact

    Buffalo Bills rookie wide receiver Khalil Shakir failed to reel in either of his two targets at mandatory minicamp practice on Wednesday, but he remains a solid route-runner who still needs some seasoning. It remains to be seen how Buffalo will use Shakir in his rookie season, but with how well Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, Isaiah McKenzie and veteran Jamison Crowder have looked this spring, and the Bills' reluctance to play late-round rookies in their first season, it's currently tough to see a path to consistent playing time for Shakir in 2022, in the opinion of The Athletic's Joe Buscaglia. As a result, the 22-year-old should be avoided in single-year fantasy formats.

  • Khalil Shakir Injured At OTAs

    Buffalo Bills rookie wide receiver Khalil Shakir didn't take part in Tuesday's organized team activities due to an undisclosed injury. He had the back of one of his legs taped as he worked on the side with the strength and conditioning staff. If it's a soft-tissue injury, there's the risk that Shakir will lose out on valuable offseason work. It's unknown if the 22-year-old will be able to work at OTAs next week or mandatory minicamp. Isaiah Hodgins was also shut down with an undisclosed injury after the practice started. Hodgins, a sixth-round pick in 2020, is on the roster bubble again this year, so losing practice time in offseason workouts isn't ideal for him.

  • Bills Sign All Draft Picks

    The Buffalo Bills have signed all eight of their draft picks and nine undrafted free agents. This includes pick No. 23, cornerback Kair Elam from Florida. It also includes second-round running back James Cook of Georgia and fifth-round wide receiver Khalil Shakir of Boise State. The Bills got to work early with their signings and are ready to hit the ground running. The announcement of these signings comes the day that their rookie minicamp begins, so they will have no lingering contract issues to work through as their new additions acclimate to the team. Getting ahead of these rookie deals may also give the team added flexibility for any additional transactions as the season gets closer. Buffalo will kick off the season in the Thursday night opener against the defending-champion Los Angeles Rams.
