2023 Fantasy Outlook
At 6-4, 223 pounds, Shorter brings a welcome element of size and length to the Buffalo wide receiver room. Stefon Diggs is the team's number one option and one of the very best in the league. Gabe Davis is a solid number two wideout, but after the clear-cut top duo the group thins out pretty fast, meaning that there could be an opportunity for Shorter to contribute as a rookie. With that in mind, the fifth-rounder will be competing for complementary snaps and targets with Deonte Harty, Khalil Shakir and Trent Sherfield. Read Past Outlooks

Lands on IR

August 30, 2023
The Bills will place Shorter on injured reserve this week due to a hamstring injury, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Buffalo News reports.
Shorter, a fifth-round pick out of Florida, made the Bills' initial 53-man roster after finishing the preseason with six catches for 66 yards and a touchdown while also contributing to special teams. However, after suffering the hamstring injury and going on IR, he'll be required to miss at least the first four games of the season. Once activated, Shorter will likely handle a depth role in the Bills' receiving corps.
