Chandler acknowledged that knee surgery he underwent will "probably keep (him) from playing again," CSN New England reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chandler, who recorded 23 catches for 259 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games for the Patriots last season, was released this offseason with a "failed physical" designation. Now it has become clear that the knee issue that slowed him at times last season, could be career-ending. In any case, the 30-year-old pass-catcher has already indicated that playing in 2016 is not an option, with the Patriots meanwhile having traded for Martellus Bennett in an attempt to find Rob Gronkowski a suitable complement at the tight end position.

The Patriots have released Chandler, CSN New England reports.

EDGE Analysis

Provided he can avoid further knee issues, Chandler, who recorded 23 catches for 259 yards and four TDs in 15 games for the Patriots in 2015, could resurface on the fantasy radar in 2016, given the red zone potential that the 30-year-old tight end's 6-foot-7 frame provides.

Chandler (knee) was on the field for 14 of the Patriots' 60 snaps on offense in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Dolphins, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chandler, who has been working through a knee issue, has played one, zero, four and 14 snaps over the last four games, and as long as star TE Rob Gronkowski remains healthy, Chandler is not a strong option in fantasy lineups. Signed with the Patriots through the 2016 season, Chandler finishes up the current regular season campaign with 23 catches for 259 yards and four TDs in 15 games.

Chandler was on the field for just four of the Patriots' 56 snaps on offense in Sunday's 26-20 overtime loss to the Jets, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chandler, who didn't play until the second half of Sunday's contest, has been managing a knee injury, with his fantasy utility moving forward dependent on the health and usage of fellow TE Rob Gronkowski.

Chandler (knee) is listed active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

As long as fellow TE Rob Gronkowski is healthy, and the Patriots are playing for something, Chandler is off the fantasy radar in all but the deepest TD-heavy formats.

Chandler (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Jets, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

EDGE Analysis

Chandler is officially listed as questionable for the game, though the bigger hindrance to a sizable number of targets is that Rob Gronkowski is healthy enough to not even be listed on the injury report this week.

Chandler (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Fellow TE Rob Gronkowski is not listed on the Patriots' Week 16 injury report, with Chandler off the fantasy radar as long as Gronkowski is able to take the field in games with playoff bearing for the team.

Chandler (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Fellow TE Rob Gronkowski missed practice Wednesday for non-injury reasons, but his Week 16 status does not appear in any doubt, with Chandler off the fantasy radar as long as Gronkowski is able to take the field.

Chandler (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Fellow TE Rob Gronkowski is in uniform Sunday and as long as that's the case, Chandler's fantasy ceiling in the Patriots' offense is limited, in any case.

Chandler (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Also listed as questionable last week, Chandler ended up playing just one snap in an easy win over the Texans. He'll likely take on a larger snap count if he's active for Sunday, but with Rob Gronkowski back in the mix, Chandler will find targets hard to come by.
