Description: Bills tight end Scott Chandler (head) practiced fully Friday and is probable for Sunday.
Insight: Chandler has four TDs in four games, including two last week. He's one of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's favorite targets particularly in the red zone. The 49ers don't let teams run the ball so the Bills will likely have to go to the air to move it in Week 5.

Insight: Chandler has four TDs in four games, including two last week. He's one of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's favorite targets, especially in the red zone, but San Francisco's well-rounded linebackers may hold him in check in Week 5.

Description: Bills tight end Scott Chandler turned out to be a matchup nightmare for New England on Sunday. The third year tight end came down with two touchdown catches while collecting a season-best 62 receiving yards in the 52-28 loss.
Insight: Chandler was just devouring Pats cornerback Sterling Moore in the first half, snatching up a pair of impressive touchdown grabs in the second quarter. Things went south for the Bills after half time but Chandler's fantasy owners should still be satisfied with the 27-year-old's performance on Sunday.

Description: According to Bills beat writer Joe Buscaglia, Bills tight end Scott Chandler has "roped everything in and become one of Ryan Fitzpatrick's favorite two targets" in training camp.
Insight: Chandler scored six touchdowns last season, but two came when he was uncovered in the end zone. Still, the 6-foot-7 Chandler isn't being drafted in the top 19 players at his position on fantasyfootballcalculator.com, so he may prove to be a major bargain as a TE2 or bye-week fill-in.
