Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Healthy scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rivera is listed as inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Saints.

Rivera is listed behind Lee Smith and Clive Walford on the Oakland depth chart, but few expected the tight end responsible for 32 receptions in 2015 to wind up on the inactive list for the season opener. It appears the Raiders are perfectly content to utilize Lee in a blocking role and Walford as the primary pass catcher, leaving little room in the offensive scheme for Rivera.

Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Held without a catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera could not haul in his lone target in Thursday's preseason game against the Packers.

Clive Walford didn't draw any targets, but he did have a 19-yard touchdown in Oakland's first preseason contest. With Walford poised to take over as the primary receiving threat at tight end, Rivera may see his role reduced for a second straight year.

Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Catches three passes
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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 TE 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.
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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 one of the team's two touchdowns 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
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rivera caught two of his three targets for 13 total 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 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 all year.
