    Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Catches three passes

    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.

    Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Leads Raiders in Week 14 receiving.

    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

    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

    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

    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.
