  Patriots | Scott Chandler failed physical    Wed Mar 2, 06:40 PM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Scott Chandler (undisclosed) was released with a failed-physical designation Wednesday, March 2.

Footballguys view: Chandler was useful on occasion, but not a big fantasy producer. We'll see if he can heal up and then find a home somewhere else, though we doubt he'll be much of a fantasy factor.

  Patriots | Brandon LaFell, Scott Chandler cut    Wed Mar 2, 04:59 PM

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell and TE Scott Chandler were released Wednesday, March 2.

Footballguys view: LaFell might end up coming back, but both he and Chandler hadn't been consistent enough to warrant keeping around.

  Jets | Scott Chandler could interest Jets    Sat Jan 30, 05:58 PM

New England Patriots TE Scott Chandler could interest the New York Jets if he's cut as he put up good numbers with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and offensive coordinator Chan Gailey with the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: The Jets have to find better answers at the tight end position. Guys like Jace Amaro and Zach Sudfeld aren't the answer, but a guy like Chandler could be. Chandler has a big frame and can box out smaller defenders for the football. We'll see if he's available this offseason.

New England Patriots TE Scott Chandler (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 15, and is listed as questionable for the divisional round playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Jan. 16.

Footballguys view: With Rob Gronkowski (knee/back) a bit banged up, we could see more from Chandler...even though he's banged up too.

  Patriots | Danny Amendola, Scott Chandler questionable    Fri Dec 11, 05:19 PM

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) and TE Scott Chandler (knee) are listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Chandler is a TE1 if Rob Gronkowski doesn't play. Amendola makes for a nice WR3/flex play, and he has upside as the Patriots want to get back on the winning track after dropping the last two games.

New England Patriots TE Scott Chandler (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 10.

Footballguys view: If Rob Gronkowski misses Sunday's game against Houston, Chandler has TE1 potential. However, be sure before you pull the trigger as the game is a late one. If Gronkowski isn't scratched by Sunday morning, you could risk him being active.

  Patriots | Scott Chandler worth watching    Mon Nov 30, 01:52 AM

New England Patriots TE Scott Chandler had five receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: The reports have been positive about Rob Gronkowski's injury, so Chandler may not pay off as big as he could. However, the Patriots are running out of weapons on offense. More of Chandler could be in the mix by necessity.

  Patriots | Scott Chandler sidelined    Wed Aug 12, 11:52 AM

New England Patriots TE Scott Chandler (undisclosed) will not play in the first preseason game with an undisclosed injury.

Footballguys view: The Patriots reveal very little about injuries, so we can't say much about Chandler's issue. Chandler has missed four straight practices. We're interested to see how they'll use him this year, but he's got to be available in practice in order to earn a role.

  Patriots | Scott Chandler seeing a lot of work    Thu Aug 6, 06:38 PM

New England Patriots TE Scott Chandler is seeing a lot of targets in training camp and could be a scary complement to TE Rob Gronkowski in two-tight end packages.

Footballguys view: Chandler is an interesting player to watch, but we're not going to call him a "scary" complement. Keep him on your waiver-wire speed dial as Chandler has good size and soft hands. He can be a threat in the red zone, and Chandler could be involved more than people think.

  Patriots | Scott Chandler impressed    Mon Jul 27, 10:20 AM

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.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Chandler can come in and do the same thing in training camp and the preseason. Keep Chandler on your waiver-wire speed dial if the Patriots look like they'll use him more than most expect. Over the last four years in Buffalo, Chandler has caught 17 touchdown passes. He might be a sneaky red-zone target here and there for Tom Brady this year.

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.

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.

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).

Footballguys view: Clay would fit in the Bills offense as a versatile blocker and receiver. The Dolphins could then look to Jordan Cameron to fill the void left by Clay. Cleveland has also been rumored to be making a strong bid for Clay.

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.

Footballguys view: Chandler has some fantasy value so long as Kyle Orton is the quarterback. Pick him up in deeper leagues.

  Bills | Scott Chandler hits century mark    Sun Oct 12, 06:04 PM

Footballguys view: Chandler is back in play as a TE streamer or bye/injury/emergency option with Kyle Orton at QB.

  Bills | Scott Chandler expects to play    Wed Aug 6, 04:20 PM

Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler (groin) said he expects to be able to play in the second preseason game after missing the first preseason game with a groin injury.

Footballguys view: Chandler's is the team's top tight end, and he'll get a fair amount of targets if healthy this year. He's been a top-20 fantasy tight end over the last two years, and Chandler should finish around the same spot in 2014.

Buffalo Bills TEs Chris Gragg and Dominique Jones may be the only two tight ends that are able to play in the Hall of Fame game because of injuries to TEs Scott Chandler (groin), Tony Moeaki (hamstring) and Lee Smith (leg).

Footballguys view: We're shocked (shocked I tell ya) that Moeaki is banged up. /sarcasm. The Bills will be a bit thin at the position with all those injuries at tight end. We'll see if either Gragg or Jones can take advantage of the opportunity.

  Bills | Two injured    Sun Jul 27, 05:22 PM

Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler (groin) suffered a groin injury Sunday, July 27. WR Kevin Elliott (head) is suffering from concussion-like symptoms.

Footballguys view: Chandler isn't going to be much of a fantasy factor if healthy. He could crack the top-20 tight ends this year (he was 18th best fantasy TE last year), but he's not a player you want to be relying on--even as a backup.

  Bills | Important season for Scott Chandler    Tue Jun 24, 12:17 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Chandler is essentially in a one-year "prove it" deal. He's a decent red-zone target, but his touchdowns have declined from six in 2011, six in 2012 to only two in 2013. Chandler is not much of a fantasy factor.

  Bills | Could use some two TE sets    Sun Jun 22, 08:31 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Moeaki's talent has never been a question, but he's never been able to stay healthy as a pro. We'll see if he can finally stay healthy and impress on the field this season with the Bills.

  Bills | Scott Chandler struggled at OTAs    Mon Jun 16, 02:06 PM

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.

Footballguys view: It was a mistake for the Bills to ignore the tight end position in the draft. It wasn't a great draft class at the position, but there were options for the team out there that would've served as upgrades to Chandler. Tony Moeaki is behind Chandler on the depth chart, and he's a talented move tight end. The problem is that Moeaki has rarely been healthy during his pro career.
