Buffalo Bills Wide Receivers (6)

Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, Jamison Crowder, Isaiah McKenzie, Khalil Shakir, Jake Kumerow

The wide receiver position is another one that should have plenty of competition for roster spots and there are realistically seven or eight wide receivers who could make the 53-man roster.

The top of the depth chart is pretty well set with the first four wide receivers. Stefon Diggs is locked in with Buffalo for the foreseeable future after signing a contract extension this offseason. Gabriel Davis is now expected to become the starter opposite Diggs and will want to build off a record-setting performance against the Chiefs in the playoffs.

The slot receiver position will look different this year with Cole Beasley being released. The role should now be split between Isaiah McKenzie and Jamison Crowder.

The Bills drafted Khalil Shakir as a fifth round pick this year and while he isn’t guaranteed a spot, he should have a good chance of making the roster.

The final spot, assuming the team keeps six wide receivers, will be a battle between Jake Kumerow, Isaiah Hodgins, and Marquez Stevenson. At this point, Kumerow gets the edge because of his play on special teams.
