New England Patriots TE Scott Chandler was one of the stars of the offseason workout program by dominating in the red zone alongside TE Rob Gronkowski.
Fantasy Tip: Chandler averaged 50-576-5 lines the last two years, and he has significant upside in the red zone in this offense. Chandler is a name that might be forgotten on draft day and could be a nice find as a midrange TE2.
Wed, 17 Jun 2015 10:33:49 -0700
New England Patriots TE Scott Chandler (rib) did not participate in practice Wednesday, June 17, because he suffered an apparent rib injury Tuesday, June 16.
Fantasy Tip: Chandler probably will miss the rest of offseason workouts but should be ready for the start of training camp. Chandler could line up with Rob Gronkowski at times this season, but owners should monitor the preseason to determine his role. Chandler could be a late-round pick in deeper leagues, but probably will not be drafted in most leagues.
Tue, 16 Jun 2015 15:46:05 -0700
New England Patriots TE Scott Chandler (side) left practice early Tuesday, June 16, as he held the right side of his body while visiting with the Patriots' head trainer.
Fantasy Tip: Chandler's fantasy value will be limited as long as Rob Gronkowski stays healthy, but the Patriots will implement some two-tight end sets. Still, don't start Chandler unless Gronkowski misses extended time at some point.
Fri, 13 Mar 2015 10:20:48 -0700
Updating a previous report, free-agent TE Scott Chandler (Bills) has reached an agreement with the New England Patriots Friday, March 13, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Again, Chandler still doesn't have much fantasy value with TE Rob Gronkowski on the same roster and playing the same position. Consider Chandler a low-end TE2.
Fri, 13 Mar 2015 10:08:05 -0700
Free-agent TE Scott Chandler (Bills) is likely to join the New England Patriots, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: The Patriots like their two-tight end sets. Chandler would obviously play second fiddle to TE Rob Gronkowski. His fantasy value would be minimal in New England, but he could still be a nice bye-week replacement and/or backup fantasy tight end.
Wed, 11 Mar 2015 14:18:12 -0700
Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler was released Wednesday, March 11. The Bills are preparing to make an offer to free-agent TE Charles Clay (Dolphins).
Fantasy Tip: Miami will still have the option to match Buffalo's offer, whatever it may be, but the fact of the matter is that the Bills need a tight end with Chandler gone. If Clay joins the Bills, he probably won't have as much fantasy appeal as he would in Miami, considering the Bills' mediocre quarterback situation.
Wed, 17 Dec 2014 10:57:47 -0800
Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.
Fantasy Tip: Chandler probably will be able to return to the practice later in the week. He has not been a big part of the passing game over the last several weeks and probably is not great option on FantasyScore at $3,400.
Mon, 13 Oct 2014 07:36:18 -0700
Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler was a focal point of the offensive gameplan in Week 6 Sunday, Oct. 12, according to head coach Doug Marrone. Chandler had six catches for 105 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Chandler caught six of nine targets and will be a cheaper option in good matchups on FantasyScore.
Sun, 12 Oct 2014 15:04:57 -0700
Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler had six receptions for a team-high 105 yards in the Week 6 game against the New England Patriots. Chandler is the first Bills tight end with over 100 yards since Pete Metzelaars in 1992.
Fantasy Tip: Chandler and Kyle Orton appeared to have very nice rapport in this game, and if it continues Chandler might re-emerge as a very useful option for FantasyScore owners going forward.
Wed, 06 Aug 2014 13:20:48 -0700

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 21:17:27 -0700
Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler, an unrestricted free agent in 2016, is due to cost $2.85 million against the 2015 salary cap. Buffalo will save the entire amount by releasing him after the upcoming year. Chandler is entering his age-29 season in 2014 and may need to have a stronger than normal year to stick around for the duration of his current contract.
Fantasy Tip: Chandler (knee) hasn't looked very fluid this offseason, but Tony Moeaki is his only legitimate competition for touches at the position. Both have modest value as matchup plays.
Sun, 22 Jun 2014 17:31:06 -0700
The Buffalo Bills could use some two tight end sets this upcoming season with TEs Scott Chandler and Tony Moeaki since Moeaki was impressive with the first-team offense during minicamp. Moeaki likely will need an outstanding training camp if he wants to unseat Chandler for the starting job.
Wed, 18 Jun 2014 09:31:12 -0700
Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler (personal) is missing his second straight day of practice Wednesday, June 18, because of a family issue.
Mon, 16 Jun 2014 11:06:54 -0700
Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler (knee) looked uncomfortable during limited time at organized team activities, according to a source. The Bills did not draft a tight end, so Chandler may be their only option at the position.
Fantasy Tip: The fact that he's the team's main option at tight end is encouraging, but the knee recovery and sluggish practices are not. It's best to stay away from Chandler this year; at least until he proves he can produce consistently.
Fri, 30 May 2014 16:33:23 -0700

The Buffalo Bills re-signed TE Scott Chandler to an undisclosed two-year deal Thursday, March 13.

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 23:48:00 -0800
Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler is on pace to finish with 55 catches and 655 yards. If he does, he'll break his career highs of 43 catches and 571 yards set in 2012, and finish with the second-most receiving yards by a tight end in franchise single-season history (726 by Paul Costa in 1967). Chandler also has at least one catch in 28 straight games, and if he continues that streak through the end of the season, he'll set a team record for most consecutive games with a reception by a tight end. Reuben Gant holds the record of 31 games from 1976-78.
Sun, 13 Oct 2013 08:55:18 -0700
Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson (back, non-injury) has been declared inactive for Week 6.
Fantasy Tip: With Johnson being out, Robert Woods and Scott Chandler could get more targets in the passing game. Neither Woods nor Chandler should be seen as more than flex options for owners this week.
Fri, 04 Oct 2013 10:49:56 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel (knee) is dealing with a lateral collateral ligament injury and will miss a few weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Manuel will be back, but until then, the team's fantasy-relevant receivers - Stevie Johnson (back), Robert Woods, Scott Chandler - will take a value hit with Jeff Tuel at the helm. Expect Buffalo to lean more on Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller in the coming weeks.
Thu, 15 Aug 2013 11:03:48 -0700
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said TE Scott Chandler (knee) will play in the team's second preseason game but will have specific number of snaps because he still coming back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He was held out of the first preseason game as a precaution.

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 10:11:09 -0700

Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler (knee) has been running well at offseason workouts and believes he could be ready for the start of training camp. Chandler has started running routes a few weeks ago and is running routes and catching passes this week.
Fantasy Tip: Chandler is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and his status for the regular season is uncertain. If he is ready for the start of the season, he could be considered a mid- to low-end No. 2 tight end that could be a matchup play because of the uncertainty the Bills have at quarterback.
Thu, 21 Feb 2013 16:37:11 -0800
Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix said the team will look to add a tight end this offseason because of the injury to TE Scott Chandler (knee).

"We've got three or four guys on the roster, but we're definitely looking to add somebody at tight end if we can."
Tue, 12 Feb 2013 18:05:36 -0800
