Bills | Important season for Scott Chandler

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.

Bills | Could use some two TE sets

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.

Bills | Scott Chandler struggled at OTAs

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.

Bills | Scott Chandler on pace for best season

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.

Bills | Stevie Johnson to miss game

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.

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).
