Jaguars' Mychal Rivera: Could open as No. 1 tight end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera could open the season as the Jaguars' No. 1 tight end, the Florida Times-Union reports.

While the Jags haven't released an official depth chart, Rivera will likely have the advantage over veteran Marcedes Lewis, who's more effective as a run-blocker at this point in his career. With Julius Thomas out of the mix, Rivera will have an opportunity to bounce back after a pair of disappointing seasons in Oakland that came on the heels of a breakout year in 2014. Last season, the 26-year-old Rivera caught a career-low 18 passes for 192 yards and one touchdown, as rookie Clive Walford emerged as Derek Carr's favored tight end target.

Jaguars' Mychal Rivera: Inks deal with Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars and Rivera agreed to a contract Wednesday, the team's official site reports.

Rivera visited some TE-needy teams this offseason (the Jets and Colts) but ultimately settled on the Jaguars, who currently roster six other players at the position. Helping his cause for playing time, though, is his stature as an H-back, from which he hauled in 146 of 230 passes for 1,413 yards and 10 touchdowns during his four seasons with the Raiders. Depending on how the Jaguars emerge from this year's draft, Rivera's primary competitor for work at the moment is long-time Jag, Marcedes Lewis (calf).

Mychal Rivera: Scheduled to visit Indy next
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera left his visit with the Jets without signing a deal and is scheduled to visit Indianapolis next, Peter Schrager of reports.

Rivera might've had a real shot at the starting gig in New York, whereas he'd only be in the mix for No. 2 duties -- behind Jack Doyle -- if he were to sign with the Colts. A 2013 sixth-round selection, Rivera caught 38 passes as a rookie and 58 more in 2014, but he only had 32 and 18 receptions the past two seasons while ceding snaps to Clive Walford -- whose own inconsistency contributed to Oakland's recent signing of Jared Cook. The 27-year-old Walford is a decent underneath target, but his lack of speed and ideal size will make it tough for him to re-emerge on the fantasy radar, regardless of where he ultimately signs.

Mychal Rivera: Visiting with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera will visit the Jets, Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports.

Rivera enjoyed a productive stretch with the Raiders back in 2014, but his role in the offense faded as the team added superior weapons. He only caught 18 of 25 targets for 192 yards and a touchdown in 13 games last season, serving as the No. 2 tight end in an offense that heavily relied on its impressive wideouts. While the Raiders seem fine to move forward without him, Rivera might have a real shot at a starting job with a Jets team sorely lacking in talent at his position. New York might represent his best chance to reemerge as a pass-catching threat.

Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Catches four passes in postseason defeat
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Rivera caught four of five targets for 31 yards in the Raiders' postseason loss to the Texans on Saturday.

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.
