Scott Chandler TE BUF 4 Days

Chandler had four catches for 37 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Raiders.

Chandler has topped 50 yards just once since Week 6. Playing the touchdown guessing game with him has been a crapshoot as well, with just three scores this year. He's no more than a low-end option against the Patriots next week.

Chandler, who missed practice Wednesday due to an illness, is no longer listed on the Bills' Week 16 injury report.

While the tight end will be available Sunday against the Raiders, Chandler has been a hit-or-miss yardage option of late, and with just two scores in 14 games to date, his upside in TD-heavy leagues continues to remain modest.

Chandler (illness) returned to practice Thursday, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

Chandler's return to the field Thursday suggests that he'll be a go Sunday against the Raiders, though his hit-or-miss yardage totals limit his utility to deeper formats, given that the tight end has found the end zone just twice in 14 games to date.

Chandler (illness) missed practice Wednesday, the Bills' official site reports.

Though Chandler was sent home Wednesday, we'd expect him to return to practice later this week and suit up Sunday against the Raiders. The tight end has been a hit-or-miss yardage option of late, and with just two trips to the end zone in 14 games to date, his upside in in TD-heavy leagues remains modest as well.

Chandler caught both of his targets for a modest 22 yards in Sunday's win over Green Bay.

Not one person in the receiving game did anything for the Bills, as Kyle Orton has a number of options to consider and it's a passing offense that struggles as it is. Chandler has had a few big games this season, but over the last two years he's lost his red-zone value and pretty much anyone in the Buffalo passing games remains a hit-or-miss option. Chandler saw 68 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday.

Chandler had a career-high eight receptions (on 11 targets) for 81 yards in Sunday's loss at Denver.

Chandler had nearly half of his yardage late in the fourth quarter, but he was involved throughout. The big TE also had a short touchdown called back due to an offensive pass interference penalty on himself. While he did extend his arms and push off a bit in the end zone, the penalty was called extremely late, after a Broncos' defender complained to the referees. In any event, it was a nice rebound performance from Chandler, after he caught just three passes for two yards last week. Meanwhile, newcomer MarQueis Gray was quiet Sunday, failing to catch a pass, after he had 71 receiving yards in his Bills' debut in Week 13. Next week, Chandler will face a tough Packers' secondary.

Chandler caught all three of his targets in Sunday's win over Cleveland, but totaled just two yards. He was on the field for 63 percent of the offensive snaps, The BuffaloNews reports.

The Bills worked newcomer MarQueis Gray into the offense pretty quickly, and it seems to have cost Chandler some potential production. This is not a great passing offense, and with Chandler having several options ahead of him in the pecking order and a modest 32/337/2 line through 12 games, he remains on the outer reaches of fantasy consideration.

Chandler caught all three of his targets for 28 yards and his second touchdown of the season in Monday's win over the Jets.

With a 29/335/2 line through 11 games and at least four other options ahead of him in the passing game, Chandler remains on the outer reaches of fantasy tight ends. But hey, it was cool watching him score and give tribute to the snowed-out people of Buffalo with an end zone shovel dance.

Chandler caught three passes on six targets for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. He was on the field for 75 percent of the team's offensive snaps, according to WGR550.com.

Chandler was almost gifted a touchdown when Bryce Brown fumbled on the way to the end zone and the ball ended up in Chandler's big mitts, but the tight end couldn't hang on and the ball scooted out of the end zone for a safety. Following a 6/105/0 outing in Week 6, Chandler hasn't put up more than 36 receiving yards in any of his past three outings.

Chandler was targeted just twice in Sunday's win over the Jets, but scored his first touchdown of the season, a 12-yarder that was one of Kyle Orton's four TD passes.

The Bills are at the halfway point, and the big tight end's numbers (23/290/1) are slightly behind last year's, when he put up a decent 53/655/2 mark in 16 games. That said, we're not giving up on him even though no tight end will ever be elite fantasy-wise in this offense. Orton has started the last four games and he's proven far more capable of finding Chandler than EJ Manuel. In those four Orton starts, Chandler has a 14/174/1 mark, much better than the pace with Manuel. He's also been targeted 22 times by Orton compared to 13 by Manuel. We think Chandler's a decent play as a deeper option with Orton at the helm, though it'd be nice if the team started using him more in the red zone, something that hasn't been the case for much of the past two seasons. Maybe Sunday was a start.
