Records TD in season finale

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Shaheed brought in three of four targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' 48-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday. He also returned two punts for 18 yards.

Shaheed set the pace in receiving yards while tying for the team lead in targets and for second in receptions. The second-year speedster enjoyed a breakout season on offense, with Sunday's production leaving his final 2023 line at a solid 46-719-5 over 15 games while also recording 37 rushing yards and 723 return yards. With Michael Thomas (IR-knee) very likely on his way out of New Orleans, Shaheed could have a solid chance of securing the No. 2 receiver role in training camp this coming summer.

Quiet outing in divisional win

Shaheed reeled in two of three targets for 14 yards during Sunday's 23-13 win against Tampa Bay.

Shaheed logged one of his least productive receiving performances of the season, including tying for his second-fewest targets of any game this season. Unlike most contests this season, the 6-foot speedster didn't see any targets on deep passes. Instead, he fulfilled his usual role as a slot receiver who catches passes at or near the line of scrimmage. Meanwhile, quarterback Derek Carr was locked in on Juwan Johnson, targeting the big-bodied tight end on 12 of his 32 passing attempts Sunday. The Saints also established an early lead and got up 17-0 at halftime, which likely deterred the team from pushing the ball downfield much in the second half. Shaheed also still finished tied for fourth on the team in targets behind Johnson, Chris Olave (six) and running back Jamaal Williams (four). Shaheed will look to make a bigger impact as the Saints vie for a playoff spot Week 18 versus the Falcons.

Scores TD in Week 16 loss

Shaheed secured five of nine targets for 70 yards and a touchdown and rushed once for four yards in the Saints' 30-22 loss to the Rams on Thursday night.

The speedy second-year pro tied with Alvin Kamara for second in receptions on the night while serving as the runner-up in yardage as well. Shaheed hit pay dirt from 45 yards late in the first half, his first score since Week 8. Shaheed's yardage total was also his best since that same contest, but it's worth noting the Weber State product recorded only 25 yards on his other four receptions outside of the touchdown. Shaheed next faces the Buccaneers' inconsistent defense in a Week 17 road matchup on New Year's Eve.

Three catches in return

Shaheed (thigh) caught three of four targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 24-6 win over the Giants.

Shaheed returned from a two-game absence while Chris Olave (ankle) joined Michael Thomas (knee) on the sidelines. Shaheed's 36 receiving yards led all Saints wide receivers, but two of Derek Carr's three touchdown passes went to tight ends, and Keith Kirkwood scored the team's only touchdown by a wideout. After getting through the game without a setback to his injured thigh, Shaheed could see his role grow Thursday against the Rams, especially if Olave and Thomas remain unavailable.

Ready for Sunday

Shaheed (thigh) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game versus the Giants, Brooke Kirchhofer of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Shaheed missed the last two games due to a thigh injury, and while he opened Week 15 prep with back-to-back capped sessions, he ended it with a full practice Friday, paving the way for his first appearance since Week 12. Fellow wide receiver Chris Olave (ankle) is questionable for Sunday after failing to practice all week, so if he's inhibited or sidelined this weekend, Shaheed would be poised for an elevated role in the Saints' passing attack.

Limited again, but plans to play

Shaheed (thigh) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

After missing the Saints' last two games with a thigh contusion, Shaheed is seemingly taking a step toward a return to the lineup this Sunday against the Giants, as he's opened Week 15 prep with a pair of limited practices. Following Wednesday's session, Shaheed told Terrell that he intends to play Sunday, but he may need to put in a full practice Friday to approach the weekend without an injury designation. When healthy, Shaheed has operated as the Saints' primary deep threat this season, as he's produced six catches of 40-plus yards through 11 appearances.

Officially limited Wednesday

Shaheed (thigh) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, Matthew Paras of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

The on-field activity marks Shaheed's first since hurting his thigh Week 12 in Atlanta and missing both of the Saints' last two games. He'll have two more opportunities to ramp up his workload further before the team potentially gives him a designation for Sunday's contest against the Giants. Fellow wide receiver Chris Olave (ankle) didn't take part in drills Wednesday, so the overall situation at wide receiver in New Orleans will be watched as the week continues to get a sense of who might be available this weekend.

Back at practice Wednesday

Shaheed (thigh) returned to practice Wednesday, Brooke Kirchhofer of NewOrleans.Football reports.

This marks Shaheed's first noticeable on-field work since Shaheed suffered a thigh injury Nov. 26 in Atlanta, which forced absences both Week 13 and 14. He thus appears to be making a push to play Sunday against the Giants, but his odds to do so could receive some clarity once the Saints' first Week 15 practice report is posted Wednesday.

Sitting out Sunday

Shaheed (thigh) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Panthers.

Shaheed hasn't practiced since hurting his thigh Week 12 in Atlanta and now will miss a second straight game as a result of the injury. Meanwhile, the Saints' No. 1 wide receiver Chris Olave has been under the weather since Thursday but will be available to the offense Sunday, with A.T. Perry, Lynn Bowden, Keith Kirkwood and Marquez Callaway also on hand to pick up the slack at the position.
