Khalil Shakir

Dalton Kincaid isn't the only player on the offense that has played well over the past few weeks. Second-year wide receiver Khalil Shakir has emerged as the starting slot receiver and made the most of his opportunities.

In the past three games, Shakir has had 14 targets and has caught all 14 of them and has 184 receiving yards during this period. In the past two weeks, he has played 40 or more offensive snaps which is significantly higher from what he was getting earlier in the season. Prior to Week 8, the most snaps Shakir had in a game was only 24.

The loss of Dawson Knox has seemingly forced Ken Dorsey to play more three wide receiver sets instead of two tight end sets, which he did earlier in the season. At times, the Bills offense has looked much better in this formation and Josh Allen has appeared more comfortable.

Khalil Shakir has continued to make plays when he has gotten opportunities and there is no reason he can't continue this strong play over the remainder of the season.
