Chris Hogan leads Bills supporting receivers in Week 7


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Bills wide receiver Chris Hogan caught five of his six targets for 63 yards in his team's 17-16 win over the Vikings in Week 7.

Hogan's big highlight came on the team's final drive, when he hauled in a 28-yard pass with less than 30 seconds left in the game to put the Bills on the two-yard line with a chance to take the lead, which they did with just one second left on the clock. It was Hogan's second game with five receptions and six targets, and he was second on the team in receiving yards to rookie Sammy Watkins in Week 7.

Tight end Scott Chandler chipped in three receptions on six targets for 36 yards after posting his first 100-yard performance of the season in the team's previous game. Tight end Chris Gragg caught both of his targets for 19 yards. No. 2 wide receiver Robert Woods managed only 10 receiving yards while catching four of his five targets in the win.


Don't count on more from Scott Chandler


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/12/2014) Tight end Scott Chandler was a monster for the Bills against the Patriots in Week 6, catching six passes for a career-high 105 yards. So is he the latest find at a position that seems to have one every week?

I'm not betting on it. The 29-year-old has a history of inconsistency, and I don't see that changing with this performance. Coach Doug Marrone already said that the increased production was part of the game plan against the Patriots, and when the Bills went heavier on the pass in a failed comeback attempt in the second half, Chandler once again faded into the background. He got four of his six catches in the first half, when the Bills still had the luxury of following their game plan.

The Bills did recently make a change at quarterback, so maybe if Kyle Orton shows a preference for Chandler in the weeks to come, I can buy into him being a Fantasy-relevant tight end. But he had only four catches for 21 yards in Orton's first start in Week 5, so I'm not counting on him for much Week 7 against Minnesota.


Bills' Scott Chandler records first career 100-yard game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Bills tight end Scott Chandler recorded his first career 100-yard performance during Sunday's 37-22 loss Week 6 vs. New England. Chandler, who was targeted nine times, recorded a team-high 105 yards on six catches.

Chandler's previous career best was 79 yards during a 27-20 loss to the Jets last season. His longest catch Sunday went 28 yards. Bills coach Doug Marrone said after the loss the team intended to get the tight ends heavily involved in the game plan Week 6.

The Bills are back in action Week 7 vs. Minnesota.


Scott Chandler breaks out with 74-yard game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Bills tight end Scott Chandler broke out with his best game yet in a 22-10 loss to the Chargers in Week 3.

Chandler was targeted just five times in the game, but made the most of his workload by hauling in all five passes. He finished the game second on the team with 74 yards, a season-best performance.

Chandler had just two receptions for 27 yards entering play Sunday, but has caught all seven passes thrown his way now. The Bills take on the Texans in Week 4. 


Scott Chandler brings in two passes


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Bills tight end Scott Chandler made little impact in a 29-10 win over the Dolphins in Week 2.

Chandler was targeted just twice in the game, but was able to haul in both passes for 27 yards, including a long reception of 22 yards.

Chandler had no catches in Week 1, so this was at least an improvement. He will look for more success when the Bills take on the Chargers in Week 3.

Scott Chandler returns to Buffalo on two-year deal


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) Free agent tight end Scott Chandler has spent his entire career with the Bills, and he won't be leaving for at least two more years after re-signing with the team Thursday. ESPN.com reports the four-year pro will return to the Bills on a two-year contract, the financial terms of which are not yet known.

Chandler put up career highs in receptions (53) and yards (655) a year ago, though he did see his touchdown total drop to two after consecutive seasons with six scores. 


Bills eager to re-sign Scott Chandler


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Bills coach Doug Marrone is eager to retain impending free agent tight end Scott Chandler, who led the team in catches and receiving yards last season. “Hopefully we can get Scott back,” Marrone said. “I think Scott did a heck of a job for us."

Chandler, 28, caught 53 passes for 655 yards and two touchdowns. The catches and receiving yards were career highs.


Trio of receivers chip in for Bills in Week 17


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Bills received minor contributions from three receivers in the Sunday loss to New England. The most proficient was tight end Scott Chandler, who tied for the team lead with three catches for 55 yards.

Adding one reception were Robert Woods for 27 yards and Marquise Goodwin for 22, both in the first quarter. The Goodwin snag came on his team's first possession of the game.


Scott Chandler sets new career-high in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Bills tight end Scott Chandler reached a new season high in receiving yards in Week 16, during a 19-0 win over the Dolphins.

Chandler needed just 3 yards to top his single-season high set last season. He got that and just a little more, finishing with 31 yards on two receptions.

Chandler now has 50 catches for 600 yards and two touchdowns on the season, with one week left to add to his totals. The Bills face the Patriots in Week 17. 


Scott Chandler looking to snap scoreless skid


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2013) The last time Bills tight end Scott Chandler faced the Dolphins, he barely made an impact. He will look to rectify that in a rematch in Week 16 Sunday.

Chandler was held to just two receptions for 18 yards in a 23-21 win in Week 7 that also doubled as the start of his now eight-game scoreless streak. He might have a chance to end that streak Sunday, as the Dolphins have allowed nine touchdowns in 14 games to opposing tight ends.

Opposing tight ends are averaging 8.86 Fantasy points per game against the Dolphins, making them one of the best matchups in the league. Unfortunately, Chandler has not topped seven Fantasy points in any of the last six games, so consider him just a low-end Fantasy option. 


Scott Chandler catches five balls against Jacksonville


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Bills TE Scott Chandler caught five passes Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Chandler played a fairly large role in the team's win, finishing second in receiving yards. He caught all five of his targets, picking up 54 yards. While he was mainly utilized on short passes, Chandler managed to come up with a 27 yard reception. He'll take on the Dolphins Week 16.


Scott Chandler looking at strong matchup Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Bills tight end Scott Chandler is looking at a strong matchup Week 15 against the Jaguars. 

Jacksonville has been one of the worst teams in the league at defending tight ends, allowing them to average 10.15 Fantasy points per game. The team has allowed tight ends to average 67.15 receiving yards, fourth highest in the league. They have also given up nine touchdowns to tight ends this season.

Chandler is on pace for a career-high in both receptions and yardage, but has had trouble finding the end zone. After scoring six touchdowns in each of the past two seasons, Chandler has only scored twice this year. A big part of that has been the team's revolving door at quarterback. EJ Manuel is back, which bodes well for all of the team's skill position players, but he hasn't shown enough upside to make any receiver on the Bills a must-start Fantasy option yet.


Scott Chandler catches two passes Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Bills tight end Scott Chandler hauled in just two passes Sunday, in a 27-6 loss to the Buccaneers. He went for 24 yards on those two catches, his worst performance in three games.

Chandler topped 500 yards for the season with the game, the second straight season he has done so. He heads into Week 15 against the Jaguars with 43 receptions for 515 yards and two touchdowns. 


Scott Chandler a weak Fantasy option Week 14


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) It's been six games since Bills tight end Scott Chandler has hit paydirt. Will he end his scoring slump Week 14 at Tampa Bay?

It won't be easy since tight ends have totaled just five touchdowns in 12 games against the Bucs. They are also averaging just 57.3 receiving yards and 7.7 Fantasy points per week. Only three tight ends -- Kellen Winslow, Jimmy Graham and Greg Olsen -- have surpassed 70 receiving yards against Tampa Bay.

Chandler has totaled more than 50 receiving yards just three times this season, including Week 13 vs. Atlanta. He's on pace to surpass his career high in receiving yards (571), but Chandler is averaging just 40.9 receiving yards per game so it's not like he's a standout performer. Chandler is at best a low-end No. 2 Fantasy tight end Week 14.


Scott Chandler leads Bills in receiving Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Bills tight end Scott Chandler led the way for the club Week 13 against the Falcons.

Chandler led the team with 63 receiving yards on four catches. He was targeted six times, which ranked second on the club. Chandler also fumbled away any chance at a Bills win during overtime. After catching a 22 yard pass, Chandler lost a fumble, giving the Falcons the ball on the 47 yard line. 

Chandler will face the Buccaneers Week 14.


Scott Chandler has favorable matchup Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) Bills tight end Scott Chandler is looking at a decent matchup Week 13 against the Falcons.

Atlanta has given up 8.36 Fantasy points per game against opposing tight ends. The team has actually done an alright job preventing tight ends from picking up major yardage, but tight ends have been a huge threat in the red zone. The Falcons have allowed eight touchdowns to tight ends through 11 games.

Chandler has perhaps surpringly been a big part of the Bills passing game this season. His 37 catches ranks second on the team behind Steve Johnson. Despite that, Chandler isn't a huge threat in the red zone, scoring two touchdowns this season. That could change against a team who can't seem to defend tight ends in the red zone. Chandler is a questionable play, but there's some upside here. 


Scott Chandler's scoring slump moves to five games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Bills tight end Scott Chandler was held to two catches for 40 yards during a 37-14 win Week 11 vs. N.Y. Jets. Chandler, who had a 31-yard reception, was targeted three times in the win.

Chandler surpassed 30 yards for the first time in three games Sunday. However, he doesn't have a touchdown in five straight games. The Bills are on a bye Week 12 before returning to action Week 13 vs. Atlanta.
