Player Outlook

Mychal Rivera is expected to be the No. 2 tight end for the Raiders this season behind Clive Walford. In 2015, Rivera had career lows in catches (32), yards (280) and touchdowns (one) with the addition of Walford. We're expecting another down season for him, and he's not worth drafting in the majority of leagues.

  • Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Catches three passes
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rivera caught three of his six targets for 20 yards in Sunday's loss to the Packers. Rivera led the Raiders in catches at the tight end position, even though he was out-targeted by rookie Clive Walford who got seven looks. The tight end position battle has been on a week-to-week basis since the beginning of the season, and Rivera won't hold much value moving forward.

  • Rivera caught three of his four targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Broncos. Rivera was the leading receiver for the Raiders on Sunday in a game where the offense struggled against a very stingy Broncos' defense. The veteran tight end hauled in the team's only touchdown on a double-move in the fourth quarter, which marked his first touchdown catch on the year. Rivera has shared time with rookie Clive Walford from week-to-week, and they both made big contributions on Sunday, as Walford led the team in targets. It's tough to predict who will see more action at tight end each week, which certainly effects his overall value as a fantasy option. The Raiders get a matchup at home against the Packers next Sunday.

  • Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Hauls in two passes
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rivera caught two of his three targets for 13 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. The tight end situation has been a mess all season, as Rivera has split time with both Clive Walford and Lee Smith. Rivera has been the top option over the last couple of years leading into this season, but the fact that Walford received twice as many targets on Sunday, may suggest that things are quickly changing. Rivera has 24 catches for 199 yards on the season, but he's caught more than three passes in a game just once this year. He's not a worthy fantasy option as this point.

  • Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Catches two passes
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rivera hauled in both of his targets for a total of 28 yards in Sunday's win over the Titans. Rivera was the leading receiver amongst the three tight ends on Sunday, as Clive Walford and Lee Smith each caught just one pass. Predicting who the top option will be from week-to-week at this position has been next to impossible, which means that it's very unlikely that Rivera will provide much more production than this moving forward. None of the Raiders' tight ends are realistic fantasy options at this point.

  • Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Catches just one pass
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rivera hauled in one of his two targets for 21 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions. After hauling in six passes in the Raiders' previous contest, Rivera followed that up with just one catch on Sunday in Detroit. He was out-targeted by rookie tight end Clive Walford, and it seems as if his performance last week against the Vikings was just a one-time thing. Expect the lesser production moving forward, much like Rivera provided on Sunday.
