Buffalo Bills Sleeper Of The Week: TE Scott Chandler

New, comments

Buffalo Bills tight end Scott Chandler has been a known fantasy commodity all year. Though he'd caught just one pass entering the 2011 season, Chandler scored four touchdowns in the season's first three weeks, and became one of the hottest waiver claims of the early fantasy season.

Now, Chandler is emerging as a bona fide go-to option in Buffalo's passing attack. Though he hasn't scored a touchdown in a month, Chandler is becoming a factor between the twenties now, as well, as he's caught 11 passes for 121 yards in the last two weeks. That's more catches and yards than anyone on the team in that time frame, including Stevie Johnson.

Earlier this week, we talked briefly about how the Tennessee Titans have struggled covering tight ends this season, and about how Titans fans fear what Chandler can do today. That makes Chandler, in our eyes, a potential fantasy star today. The Bills need his production, and he'll have opportunities to make plays.
