Catches team's only receiving TD

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-21

Shakir hauled in seven of nine targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 playoff loss to the Chiefs.

Shakir got the start in place of the injured Gabe Davis (knee) and wound up having to briefly leave Sunday's playoff tilt with an injury of his own. The second-year wideout recovered quickly from his shoulder ailment and finished the spot start as the Bills' top producer while leading his club in targets. Shakir finished a solid sophomore campaign (39/611/2) with a strong postseason receiving line of 10/75/2 across two playoff games. Buffalo has a decision to make on the aforementioned Davis this upcoming offseason, and Shakir's fine work as the Bills' slot man in 2023 could earn him more work alongside No. 1 wideout Stefon Diggs next season.

Returns to game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-21

Shakir (shoulder) has returned to Sunday's divisional-round game against Kansas City, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

Shakir sustained a shoulder injury early in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game but was cleared to return to action a few minutes later. He could continue to see a slight uptick in work since Gabe Davis (knee) is unavailable Sunday.

Questionable to return

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-21

Shakir is questionable to return to Sunday's divisional-round game against Kansas City due to a shoulder injury.

Shakir went down on a hit in the fourth quarter of Sunday's matchup and immediately jogged to the locker room afterward. The Bills are already short on receivers with Gabe Davis (knee) sidelined Sunday, so Trent Sherfield could see increased targets down the stretch if Shakir is unable to return.

Steps up in place of Davis

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-15

Shakir brought in all three of his targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 31-17 wild-card win over the Steelers.

Shakir got the start as the Bills' No. 2 wideout with Gabe Davis (knee) unable to suit up for Monday's playoff victory. The 2022 fifth-round selection didn't receive a huge bump in targets as anticipated, but he managed to score the last of Buffalo's four touchdowns with a Herculean individual effort in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Josh Allen hit Shakir on a drag route across the middle for what looked to be a one or two yard gain, but the Bills' slippery wideout ducked out of a tackle before evading multiple Pittsburgh defenders for a 17-yard score that put the game away for good. Shakir proved that he can step up to start opposite Stefon Diggs when Davis can't go. The latter's status for Sunday's AFC divisional game against the Chiefs is still unknown, but Shakir will have a role on offense as either Buffalo's No. 2 or 3 wideout against KC.

Chance to shine

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-12

Shakir's teammate Gabe Davis has been ruled out of Sunday's playoff opener against the Steelers due to a knee injury.

Shakir is coming off a fantastic game with six catches for 105 yards and will reprise the role of No. 2 wideout under top dog Stefon Diggs. There's a good chance Shakir will receive a healthy number of targets Sunday, though that comes with two caveats -- one is that the Bills always spread the ball around even when key players are hurt, the other being the weather forecast is calling for ugly, windy weather all afternoon.

Steps up in division-clinching game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-09

Shakir caught all six of his targets for 105 yards in Sunday's 21-14 victory over the Dolphins.

Gabe Davis left the game with a sprained PCL, but the Buffalo offense didn't miss a beat with Shakir stepping up, and one could argue he's looked better at times this season than the struggling Davis. Shakir finishes his second regular season with a 39-611-2 line, cementing himself as the clear No. 3 on this team, not bad since he was a fifth-round pick just a year ago. Shakir will be asked to fill No. 2 wideout duties if Davis isn't healed in time for Sunday's playoff opener against the Steelers.

Modest role in important win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-03

Shakir caught all four of his targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 27-21 win over the Patriots. He also rushed one time for 10 yards.

Shakir posted a big 3-115-1 outing in Week 11, but he's not topped 47 receiving yards in the five games since and remains a deeper option in an offense with lots of mouths to feed. With the Bills possibly having everything on the line for a playoff spot Sunday night and at the very least important seeding at stake, Week 18 will not be one of those games where Shakir gets high-profile reps while the stars sit, so he remains a dart for an occasional splash play. On a brighter note, he's firmly cemented himself as the team's No. 3 WR option in just his second NFL season.

Narrowly misses out on TD

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-23

Shakir recorded three catches on three targets for 45 yards in Saturday's 24-22 win over the Chargers.

Shakir has found opportunity hard to come by with both Dalton Kincaid and Dawson Knox healthy, as he entered Saturday's win with only one target in each of his last two games. He still had limited volume against the Chargers, but he had three impactful gains of 16, 15 and 14 yards. It originally appeared that Shakir scored a touchdown late in the fourth quarter to put the Bills ahead, though he was ruled down by contact. While it was a solid performance, Shakir will remain a peripheral option in Buffalo's offense to close the regular season.

Shut out against Cowboys

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-20

Shakir failed to secure his lone target in Sunday's 31-10 win over the Cowboys.

Shakir was targeted just once for the second straight week and saw his lowest offensive snap percentage (49) since Week 7. The wideout's lack of opportunities came on a day when quarterback Josh Allen attempted just 15 passes in a blowout. Even so, Shakir's inconsistent production throughout the season make him extremely difficult to trust for fantasy purposes. The 23-year-old will look to have more of an impact when the Bills visit the Chargers in Week 16.
