Raiders' Kenbrell Thompkins paces quiet receiving attack Week 11
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Raiders wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins caught two of his three targets for a team-high 47 yards in his team's 13-6 loss to the Chargers in Week 11.

Thompkins was responsible for one of the Raiders' few quality plays on offense, making a tough catch over the middle on a play from midfield and ripping off about 15 yards after the catch on a 35-yard play. The Raiders were unable to get into the end zone on the fourth-quarter drive though and settled for their second field goal of the day.

Tight end Mychal Rivera shared the team lead in receptions with running back Latavius Murray, with the tight end catching three of his five targets for 40 yards. James Jones added 35 yards while catching two of his five targets, while Andre Homes caught just two of his six targets for 19 yards. Backup receiver Brice Butler managed to catch one of his three targets for 15 yards.

The Raiders' passing attack will look for a big step up Thursday against the Chiefs.

Raiders TE Mychal Rivera records TD for second straight game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera recorded a touchdown for a second straight game during a 41-17 loss Week 10 vs. Denver. Rivera finished with six catches for a team-high 64 receiving yards.

Rivera got most of his stats on the final drive. He totaled three catches for 49 yards on the last drive, which included an 18-yard touchdown. He has three touchdowns in his last two games and is averaging 61.7 receiving yards in his last three games.

The Raiders are back in action Week 11 at San Diego.

Mychal Rivera becoming a consistent target
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

OK, so you probably shouldn't expect two touchdowns from Mychal Rivera every week, but the Raiders tight end has certainly established himself as a reliable underneath target for quarterback Derek Carr -- the perfect safety valve for a rookie with the ability to stretch the field.

Rivera had only 38 yards in this one (thanks in part to those two 1-yard touchdowns), but he caught eight passes. That's only a week after catching seven for 83 yards.

Rivera had five catches back in Week 2, but otherwise, he hadn't been too involved in the passing game prior to Week 8. Now that he appears to be an integral part of it, he's in the discussion as at least a bye-week replacement in standard Fantasy leagues and perhaps an outright add in PPR formats.

Raiders' Mychal Rivera emerges Week 9
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Raiders TE Mychal Rivera was Derek Carr's favorite target Week 9 against the Seahawks.

Rivera was more of a check-down specialist, gaining 38 yards on eight receptions. He averaged just 4.8 yards per catch. Rivera was a big beneficiary at the goal line, where Carr found him for two 1 yard scores. Rivera was targeted a team-high 11 times. 

Rivera will look for more Week 10 against the Broncos.

Mychal Rivera worth keeping an eye on
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera put together the best performance of his career in Week 8, in a 23-13 loss to the Browns.

Rivera, who had just 101 yards through the first six games, went off for 83 yards Sunday. He hauled in seven passes on nine targets in the game, all of which represent his best totals of the season.

Rivera showed some promise as a rookie, but had been mostly silent before Sunday's game. He has a limited track record of success, so you probably need to see more from Rivera before considering adding him. Still, Rivera might be an interesting prospect to monitor in the second half of the season.
