Rivera out-produced No. 1 tight end Clive Walford on Saturday, but -- as to be expected from an offense quarterbacked by rookie Connor Cook -- wasn't able to do much on the whole as the Raiders seemingly couldn't move the ball whatsoever until garbage time arrived. Now set to be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, Rivera has incentive to find a new home in 2017 with a team more eager to utilize his pass-catching prowess.
Rivera caught two passes on three targets for nine yards in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. He finishes the 2016 regular season with 18 catches on 25 targets for 192 yards and one touchdown in 13 games.
Rivera was held in check throughout the season with Clive Walford securing the No. 1 spot at tight end for the Raiders, while neither option consistently served as a viable fantasy tool. Rivera will be an unrestricted free agent in 2017, so the playoffs may be his last stint in Oakland.
Rivera was held to just one catch for 15 yards on two targets during Sunday's win over the Chargers.
Rivera and Clive Walford continue to split the volume at tight end for Oakland, thus limiting each others' fantasy value severely. Expect a similar role for Rivera in Week 16 against the Colts despite a solid matchup.
Rivera caught three passes on five targets for 26 yards during Thursday's loss to the Chiefs.
Rivera hauled in three catches on five targets for the second consecutive week, while he and Clive Walford are essentially splitting the workload at tight end. Both of their fantasy values are limited moving forward as a result.
Rivera caught three passes on five targets for 57 yards during Sunday's win over the Bills.
Rivera saw a season-high five targets in Week 13, which he translated into the most productive game of his 2016 campaign with an average of 19 yards per reception. The Raiders' tight end situation remains limited in terms of fantasy value, however, with neither Rivera nor Clive Walford stepping up on a weekly basis.
