With fear of concussion looming, Bills say TE Scott Chandler 'will be fine'

One of Scott Chandler @scottchandler84's best days as a pro ended a little early when he took a shot to the head from Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes in the second half. The worry was Chandler had suffered a concussion, but head coach Chad Gailey didn't mention anything of the sort Monday. He did say Chander "will be fine." He also said the same of wide receiver Donald Jones @Dajones19, who had to be taken out during the fourth quarter also because of a head injury.
Chandler caught four passes for 62 yards and two touchdowns before leaving.

Fantasy Analysis:

For once, Chandler wasn't used as just a touchdown option around the goal line. Both scores came from at least 20 yards out and included good body control and the ability to snatch the ball from above his head away from defenders. The 49ers are up next for Buffalo. Usually, that's a dreadful matchup for any tight end, but San Francisco has permitted four TE touchdowns this year, so there is some hope for Chandler if he is indeed fine.
Jones had a big stat line thanks to a long catch-and-run touchdown. He was targeted just three times and caught two passes. He is but a faint blip on the fantasy radar.
