Mychal Rivera caught six of his seven targets for 46 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.
The Oakland 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 was considered the primary option at tight end when the Oakland 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.
Mychal Rivera caught three passes off of three targets for 33 yards in Sunday's loss to Denver.
