RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers posted five receptions for 80 yards in Sunday's 43-16 win over the Alouettes.

The 28-year-old's rise has coincided with Jeremiah Masoli's successful tenure as the starting quarterback, as Chambers has 24 receptions for 253 yards in the four games he's played with Masoli behind center. The 28-year-old appears to have found a consistent niche alongside fellow pass catchers Brandon Banks and Luke Tasker in the Tiger-Cats' resurgent passing attack, making him a fantasy consideration each week. He'll look to keep things going in the right direction against the Redblacks in Week 19.

Chambers totaled seven receptions for 81 yards in Friday's 30-13 win over the Blue Bombers.

Chambers' reception total led the Tiger-Cats on the night, his second strong effort in the three games since arriving in Hamilton. The 28-year-old wideout has compiled 13 catches for 138 yards in that pair of contests, making him an increasingly valuable component of a surging Tiger-Cats passing attack. He'll look to put up another productive effort versus the tough Stampeders defense in Week 17.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers tallied six catches for 57 yards in Friday's 24-23 win over the Lions.

Chambers jumped right into the thick of things in his Tiger-Cats debut, tying Brandon Banks for second on the team in catches. The 28-year-old notched only four receptions for 40 yards in six games with the Eskimos earlier this season, but did post 25 receptions for 269 yards in a more expanded role with the Roughriders in 2016. Chambers will look to continue playing an important role when Hamilton faces off with the Argonauts in Week 15.

September 21, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers will start at wide receiver Friday in his Tiger-Cats debut.

Chambers may have opened in a reserve role if not for the suspension levied on fellow receiver Mike Jones, but with Jones out this week, Chambers will jump right into the starting lineup for his new squad. Chambers caught just four passes in six games with the Eskimos this season, but he could get a chance to play a bigger role for the Tiger-Cats.

September 17, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers was traded to the Tiger-Cats on Sunday, Justin Dunk of 3DownNation.com reports.

Chambers has played in just six of 12 games so far this season, pulling in four receptions for 40 yards. With the Tiger-Cats having serious depth issues at the wide receiver position, Chambers fills an immediate need and should see a spike in his playing time moving forward with his new organization.

September 4, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers was moved to a reserve role for Monday's game against the Stampeders.

Chambers has alternated starting and backing up since making his season debut in Week 8, and that pattern will continue this week. Chambers totaled just three receptions for 35 yards in his first three games of the season, and he figures to continue playing a bit role moving forward.

August 24, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers is listed as a starter for Friday's game against the Roughriders.

With the Eskimos' top wideout Vidal Hazelton out for Friday's contest with an undisclosed injury, Chambers has been promoted to one of the team's starting receivers. Chambers was recently demoted back into a reserve role, but will serve as a key member of the team's offensive game plan for at least this coming week.

August 16, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers is listed as a reserve wide receiver on the depth chart for Thursday's game against the Blue Bombers.

Chambers started at slotback last week in his 2017 debut, but he caught just one pass, so he will both change positions and cede his starting spot with fellow pass catcher D'haquille Williams returning to action this week. The Eskimos figure to get both Brandon Zylstra (undisclosed) and Adarius Bowman (hamstring) back at some point in the near future, which will puss Chambers even further down the pecking order.

August 9, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers (hamstring) will make his season debut in Thursday's game against the Redblacks.

Chambers has spent the entire season on the injured list, but he is ready to return to action. It's not entirely clear what his long-term role will be, but he will start at slotback this week with Brandon Zylstra (undisclosed) sidelined. Chambers spent last season with the Roughriders but played the previous four years in Edmonton, so he should have some level of familiarity as he takes the field for the first time in 2017.

August 7, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers (undisclosed) was activated from the six-game injured list Monday, Dave Campbell of Inside Sports reports.

Chambers landed on the six-game injured list prior to the regular-season opener, but is finally nearing a return to full strength and has been activated. He'll likely be eased back into the swing of things, but could be back in the lineup as soon as Thursday's game against the Redblacks.

June 23, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers was placed on the six-game injured list prior to Week 1.

Chambers was slowed by a hamstring injury during training camp, and the setback will prevent him from being ready for the start of the regular season.

June 12, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers sat out Sunday's preseason opener due to a hamstring injury, according to the CFL's official website.

The extent of Chambers' setback is not certain, but it prevented him from taking the field Sunday. He will still have nearly two weeks to rest and recover prior to the Eskimos' season opener June 24 against the Lions.

February 9, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers signed a contract with the Eskimos on Thursday.

Chambers was drafted No. 6 by the Edmonton back in 2012, and he will now return to the team he won a Grey Cup with. He was hampered by injuries during his 2016 season with Saskatchewan, but was able to haul in 25 passes for 269 yards and one touchdown in six starts. Chambers' return to Edmonton should see an increase in production as long as he can remain healthy.

August 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers will again start at wide receiver in Friday's game against the Eskimos.

Chambers worked as a reserve the last couple weeks, but he will be part of the Roughriders' starting lineup in Week 10 with Rob Bagg banged up and John Chiles no longer on the roster. Chambers has totaled 17 receptions for 164 yards and a touchdown in six games this season.

August 4, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers is inactive for Thursday's game against the Stampeders.

It was announced Wednesday that Chambers would be backing up Nic Demski on Thursday. However, Chambers now finds himself on the two-man reserve, meaning he will be inactive Thursday. He will look to return Aug. 13 at home against Calgary.

August 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers was demoted to backup for Thursday's game against Calgary.

Despite having the best game of his season last week, catching six passes for 72 yards, Chambers will back up Nic Demski on Thursday.

July 30, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers caught six passes for 72 yards in Friday's blowout loss to the Alouettes.

Quarterback Mitchell Gale was ineffective at best under center, but Chambers was still able to haul in a decent stat line. The fifth-year player doubled his catch total on the season with the performance though, so even if first-string QB Darian Durant is able to return next week, Chambers will likely have trouble repeating this kind of production.

July 28, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers is listed on the Roughriders' depth chart and will start Friday night against the Alouettes.

Chambers missed last week's win over the Redblacks due to a hamstring injury, but has now been cleared to return to action on Friday night. The 27-year-old has six receptions for 43 yards and one touchdown in three games this season.

July 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers (hamstring) has been ruled out of Friday's game against the Redblacks, SN broadcaster Farhan Lalji reports.

Chambers left Saturday's loss to the Lions with the hamstring injury, which will land him on the one-game injury list for Friday's tilt with Ottawa. In his absence look for Ricky Collins Jr., John Chiles, and Nic Demski to pick up the slack.

July 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers left Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury, Lee Jones of CTV Regina reports.

Chambers was held without a catch before going to the locker room with an injury in the first half. The severity or location of the injury have yet to be released, but we should hear more later in the week. The Roughriders next game is on Friday versus the Redblacks, so Chambers will have just under a week for rest and recovery.

July 9, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chambers caught six passes for 43 yards and a touchdown in Friday's loss to the Eskimos.

He made his mark Friday against his former club, and Chambers has an opportunity to move up an unsettled Roughriders' depth chart at receiver if he continues producing. Given his lackluster four seasons in Edmonton and the fact that he failed to catch a pass in Saskatchewan's first game however, Chambers still has a lot to prove before he'll be considered even a semi-reliable fantasy option.
