Scott Chandler TE BUF 11 Months

Scott Chandler caught three balls for 21 yards in the Bills' Week 10 loss to the Steelers.

A mid-range to low-end TE2, Chandler wasn't even in the game when the Bills were at the goal line late in garbage time. Rookie Chris Gragg came up with E.J. Manuel's two-yard touchdown pass. Chandler is going to need Manuel to play far better than he did against Pittsburgh in order to be start-able in fantasy leagues. The Bills face the Jets in Week 11 before a Week 12 bye.

Scott Chandler caught seven passes for 72 yards in Week 8 against the Saints.

Chandler and Stevie Johnson tied for the team lead in catches, yards, and targets (11). The seven catches and 11 targets were season-highs. Chandler had a tough blocking day, however. He allowed Thad Lewis to get crushed by Junior Galette, and then committed a holding penalty to negate a 55-yard touchdown for Marquise Goodwin. Chandler is on pace for a 58-682-4 line at the season's halfway point. He's a TE2.

Scott Chandler caught four passes for 49 yards in Buffalo's Week 5 loss to the Browns.

The 49 yards were his second most of the season, and aided by an impressive circus catch. Chandler is a sure pair of hands, but not much else. He's one of the slowest skill-position players in all of football, and little more than a middling TE2.

Bills TE Scott Chandler caught five passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Jets.

The Bills threw 41 times on Sunday and don't want to play that way, so take Chandler's big box-score game with a grain of salt. His yardage totals in Weeks 1 and 2 were 10 and 38. Chandler is a clear-cut TE2 in fantasy football.

Scott Chandler caught four passes for 38 yards in Buffalo's Week 1 loss to the Patriots.

It wasn't a bad day in theory, but Chandler also committed two penalties and an ugly drop. Coming off ACL surgery, he appeared astoundingly slow. He's a poor TE2 bet.
