Scott Chandler injury update: Groin issue won't limit fantasy value

Rick Stewart

Scott Chandler is expected to play against the Rams despite being listed on the Bills injury report with a groin injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Scott Chandler is expected to suit up for the Buffalo Bills during Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams. Chandler was listed on the team's injury report with a groin injury, but he was able to participate fully in practice throughout the week.

Chandler's numbers have taken a big dip in recent weeks. After a solid outing in Week 10 against the New England Patriots, he has been held to two receptions or less in each of his last three games.

Fantasy Impact: Chandler has been a solid red zone threat for the Bills this season, catching six touchdowns on the year. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, he doesn't see enough targets elsewhere on the field to warrant weekly starting consideration. He is essentially a boom-or-bust option. If he scores a touchdown, as he did last week despite just one reception for 11 yards, then great. If not, he tends to leave a big hole in your lineup.
