Khalil Shakir

It was another lackluster performance from the Buffalo Bills offense as they would only muster 13 points off three first quarter turnovers forced by the defense. There are plenty of concerns around this group as Josh Allen looks inaccurate, Stefon Diggs has not been much of a factor and the run game really didn't get going in this game.

However, Khalil Shakir is a wide receiver who was able to produce with the opportunities he had. The second-year wide receiver would get four targets, catch all four of them, and pick up 39 yards. He also caught a lateral from Josh Allen in the first half that he was able to convert into a first down.

Shakir has now caught each of the last seven targets he has gotten over the past two games. As the Bills struggle with drops, Shakir should get a bigger role in this offense if he continues to prove to be a reliable option for Josh Allen.
