Scott Chandler caught three balls for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' third preseason game.
With Rob Gronkowski resting, Chandler parlayed his first-team work into an 18-yard touchdown in the second quarter on a fade ball from Tom Brady. Beat writers on Twitter immediately noted the Brady-to-Chandler end-zone fade has been a staple in Patriots practices. Chandler will be a low-volume red-zone threat in the Pats' offense this year, and a low-end TE1 if Gronk goes down. Aug 28 - 10:34 PM

Scott Chandler (undisclosed) will not play in Thursday’s preseason opener.

Chandler hasn’t practiced in the last four days. This Patriots team is unlikely to provide any updates on his status. Michael Hoomanawanui will replace Chandler in two tight end sets.
Aug 12 - 5:55 PM

Patriots signed TE Scott Chandler to a two-year, $5.3 million contract.

It's back to the drawing board for the Ravens, who were hoping Chandler would fill their vacancy at tight end. After losing to the Patriots so many times over the years, Chandler figured if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Chandler's ceiling isn't particularly high, but Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels are crafty enough play callers to carve out a role for him. Chandler will not be a reliable week-to-week fantasy factor in New England barring injury to Rob Gronkowski.

Free agent TE Scott Chandler will sign with either the Ravens or Patriots.

Chandler wouldn't expect to get much playing time in New England behind Rob Gronkowski and Tim Wright. Dennis Pitta has held the Ravens hostage with injuries, so the need for a tight end is far greater in Baltimore. Chandler was dumped by the Bills, possibly in anticipation of landing Charles Clay.

The Ravens are showing interest in free agent TE Scott Chandler.

The tight end market is shrinking now that Julius Thomas and Owen Daniels have signed with new teams. Charles Clay and Jordan Cameron don't appear to be options for Baltimore either. Chandler is an average athlete, but he's at least a big body Joe Flacco can look for around the red zone. Dennis Pitta's uncertain status has made the Ravens especially desperate to find a tight end.
Mar 12 - 10:43 AM

ESPN's Jamison Hensley expects the Ravens to have interest in free agent TE Scott Chandler.

With Dennis Pitta's 2015 status up in the air, Chandler would give the Ravens a fallback option at tight end. Entering his age-30 season, Chandler may be limited to one-year deals on the open market.
Mar 11 - 5:44 PM

Bills released TE Scott Chandler.

The move creates $2.25 million in cap space, and is further evidence that the Bills are serious about their pursuit of Dolphins transition player Charles Clay. Chandler spent the past five years in Buffalo, averaging 45 catches over the past four seasons. Chandler is a competent blocker, but lost some of his already-limited athleticism following his 2012 ACL tear. Going on 30, he'll be limited to 1-2 year offers in free agency.
Mar 11 - 5:02 PM

Scott Chandler caught one pass for 20 yards Week 17 against the Patriots.

Normally a Patriots killer, Chandler was held in check as the Bills sat on the lead in the second half. Chandler took a step back in 2014, finishing with 47 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns after cracking the 650-yard mark in 2013. Just finishing the first year of a two-year deal, Chandler will almost certainly be the Bills starting tight end in 2015.

Scott Chandler caught four passes for 37 yards and one touchdown in the Bills' Week 16 win over the Raiders.

He was targeted six times on the day. On his touchdown, Chandler beat LB Ray-Ray Armstrong, who fell down on the play. It was Chandler's first end-zone visit since Week 12 and just his third score of the season. Chandler and the Bills head to New England to wrap up the season in Week 17.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 08:20:00 PM

Scott Chandler secured 2-of-2 targets for 22 yards in the Bills' Week 15 win over the Packers.

He appeared to share time with Lee Smith and MarQueis Gray. Chandler has had a couple of decent box-score lines this season, but is always nothing more than a desperate TE1 streamer. He'll be a TE2 in Week 16 at Oakland.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 04:43:00 PM

Scott Chandler caught eight passes for 81 yards in Sunday's Week 14 loss at Denver.

Chandler also had a touchdown called back when he was flagged for offensive pass interference. Regardless, just about all of his production came in garbage time as the Broncos played a soft zone after getting out to a 21-3 third-quarter lead. Don't go chasing Chandler's stats against the Packers in Week 15 -- he had a total of 10 catches in the previous five games.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 08:21:00 PM

Scott Chandler caught 3-of-3 targets for two yards in Buffalo's Week 13 win over the Browns.

Mediocrity personified. Chandler lost snaps to MarQueis Gray, who totaled 71 yards on two receptions. Despite his bargain pricing, Chandler should never be trotted out in daily leagues.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 05:51:00 PM

Scott Chandler had three catches for 28 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Jets.

Chandler scored a 19-yard touchdown at the end of the first half. He was held without a catch last week, and remains mostly an afterthought in the Bills' offense. Chandler can continue to be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Mon, Nov 24, 2014 11:36:00 PM

Scott Chandler was held without a catch on three targets in Buffalo's Week 11 loss to the Dolphins.

The doughnut came on a night where Kyle Orton dinked and dunked his way through 39 pass attempts. Chandler has zero upside in fantasy leagues, daily or season-long.
Fri, Nov 14, 2014 12:05:00 AM

Scott Chandler had three catches for 17 yards in Week 10 against the Chiefs.

Chandler remains just an afterthought in the Bills' offense. He has a 26/307/1 line through nine games.
