    Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Catches just one pass

    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.

    Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Hauls in six passes.

    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.

    Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Makes Two Catches

    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 TE Mychal Rivera catches three passes against Denver

    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.

    Mychal Rivera in a crowded situation at TE with Raiders

    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.

    Raiders TE Mychal Rivera nets 15 receiving yards in Week 2

    Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera caught three of his five targets for 15 yards in Sunday's Week 2 matchup with the Ravens. This was a step in the right direction after just one catch on two targets in Week 1. Rivera played 39 snaps to Clive Walford's 20 and he received three more targets in the process. This would suggest that Rivera is still the top option at tight end, but neither of these two have proven to be major fantasy players up to this point.

    Raiders TE Mychal Rivera needs more action to make impact

    Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera caught one pass for four yards on two targets in Week 1's loss to the Bengals. Meanwhile, Clive Walford was targeted twice in the game, catching one pass for one yard. While things could look up for either player in the coming weeks, until the Raiders involve their tight ends in the offense more, neither Rivera or Walford will be high-percentage fantasy plays.

    Mychal Rivera too inconsistent to trust

    Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera had a productive three-game stretch earlier in the season, so his seven-catch, 109-yard, touchdown-scoring performance Week 14 against San Francisco wasn't completely out of nowhere. But considering he had a combined seven catches for 69 yards in three games in between, a repeat performance might be a bit much to ask. The Chiefs, his Week 15 opponent, permitted him just one catch for 8 yards in Week 12. For more major takeaways from Week 14, check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.

    Raiders TE Mychal Rivera breaks out Week 14

    Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera had a breakout game Week 14 against the 49ers. Rivera hauled in seven receptions for 107 yards. Rivera was a strong target for Derek Carr the entire game, but didn't score until the final quarter. In the fourth, Rivera managed to haul in a 5 yard touchdown catch from Carr. The score put the game out of reach for San Francisco. Rivera will look for more Week 15 against the Chiefs.

    Raiders' passing game yields little Week 13

    The Raiders threw for 183 yards with three interceptions in their 52-0 loss at St. Louis, so there wasn't a lot of production to go around. Wideout Andre Holmes caught three of six targets for 28 yards, and wideout Kenbrell Thompkins hauled in two of five targets for 28 yards. Receiver Brice Butler secured both his targets for 27 yards. Tight end Mychal Rivera caught three of eight targets for 21 yards, and wideout Vincent Brown had a 10-yard grab. They'll all play the 49ers in Week 14.
