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.
Rivera caught six of his seven targets for 46 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. The Raiders' tight end situation has been a crap shoot for much of the year, but Rivera was the clearly the top option on Sunday as he led the team in receptions. Rivera did fumble the ball at one point, but the Raiders were fortunate enough to get it back. The increased workload would typically be a good sign moving forward, but you never know when it comes to Raiders' tight ends. Rivera should continue to see targets, but it's tough to estimate how many from week-to-week. He should be considered a very low-end fantasy option at this point.
Rivera caught two-of-three targets for 11 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers. Rivera was considered the primary option at tight end when the Raiders began the season, and his three targets were the most amongst the three tight ends on Sunday. However, rookie Clive Walford did catch a 23-yard touchdown, and was targeted twice down the field which would suggest that he'll continue to get looks moving forward. Rivera can't be trusted as a fantasy option at his position, unless Walford were to get hurt.
Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera caught three passes off of three targets for 33 yards in Sunday's loss to Denver. Rivera's three catches tied a season high. The Raiders are a two-receiver team, with Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree seeing a combined 48 percent of targets. Backs Latavius Murray and Marcel Reece follow in the pecking order. Rivera is unlikely to see enough passes to make a consistent fantasy impact.
Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera hauled in two of his three targets for 12 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bears. Rivera is one of three tight ends that saw time on Sunday, along with Lee Smith and Clive Walford. Walford didn't catch any passes, but he was targeted deep down the middle during the first quarter. Smith caught both of his targets for 14 yards. Depending on the weekly game flow, all three of these guys will continue to see time on the field. Rivera is a very low-end Fantasy option, especially with the Raiders' plethora of options at the wide receiver position.
