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

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.

Chandler had six catches on nine targets for 105 yards Sunday against the Patriots.

With Sammy Watkins drawing Darrelle Revis all game and Mike Williams inactive, Chandler saw more passes thrown his way than any other game this season, and became the first Bills tight end to have more than 100 receiving yards in a game since Pete Metzelaars in 1992. Despite the breakout performance, it's tough to rely on Chandler for good solid production given that he's finished with fewer than 30 yards in four of six games this season.

Chandler caught all five of his targets during Sunday's loss to the Chargers, good for 74 yards.

Not bad production at all, though he's still looking for his first touchdown and doesn't even have a red zone target yet. Still, if we're looking on the bright side of things, Chandler did seem to have more room to go out for passes with blocking tight end Lee Smith finally returning from injury.

Chandler was targeted once and failed to register a catch in Sunday's win over Chicago.

This was the first time since late in the 2011 season that the big tight end failed to log a catch. Chandler is the clear-cut top tight end in this offense, but there are a good number of weapons and, like teammate Mike Williams, it seems like he'll serve this season as more of a red-zone threat and not a guy who gets more than a modest volume outside the opponent's 20-yard-line.

Chandler (knee) is not listed on the Bills' Wednesday practice participation/injury report.

Chandler's Week 1 status seems secure, and while he's not among the league's flashy fantasy options at tight end, he could carve out some utility in deeper formats in 2014, given that he and wideout Mike Williams figure to slot in as the team's top two red-zone targets.
