Oakland Raiders TE David Ausberry (knee) was wearing a small wrap on his left knee during practice after having a procedure on his knee a week ago. That's a far better sign than if Ausberry was on crutches or sporting a large knee brace. However, Ausberry is still out indefinitely.
Fantasy Tip: With Ausberry sidelined, and Nick Kasa suffering an injury this week, that leaves Mychal Rivera and Brian Leonhardt as the top two tight ends, with Jake Murphy and Scott Simonson also in the mix.

Oakland Raiders TE David Ausberry (knee) has no timetable for his return, and head coach Dennis Allen said Ausberry "may be out for a little while." Ausberry is having unspecified surgery on his knee Wednesday, Aug. 6. Ausberry's absence will move TE Mychal Rivera into a starting role and will open up more playing time for TEs Brian Leonhardt and Nick Kasa.
Fantasy Tip: We'll have a better idea of how much time Ausberry will miss once we know the details of his knee surgery that is taking place today. Check back for more updates.

Oakland Raiders TE David Ausberry (knee) will undergo knee surgery and miss the team's preseason opener Friday, Aug. 8, according to head coach Dennis Allen. The exact nature of Ausberry's injury has not been revealed.
Fantasy Tip: Ausberry was sitting on top of the depth chart at tight end, and Mychal Rivera will likely inherit the role for as long as Ausberry is sidelined. However, Rivera is a low-end TE2 at best even as the starter.

Oakland Raiders TE David Ausberry (knee) missed practice Monday, Aug. 4, and TE Mychal Rivera saw many of the reps with the first-team in his place.
Fantasy Tip: No Oakland tight end is a great fantasy option, but if Ausberry is forced to miss much time, Rivera could become a low-end TE2.

Oakland Raiders TE David Ausberry was the leading tight end in the offseason workouts, according to ESPN.com's Paul Gutierrez. Ausberry is fully recovered from the shoulder injury, which cost him the 2013 season, and he will compete with TE Mychal Rivera for targets.
Fantasy Tip: At best, Ausberry and Rivera are late-round fliers as a TE2. Unless one of them separates themselves from the other in training camp, they should go undrafted in standard leagues.

Oakland Raiders TE David Ausberry could be a receiving threat this upcoming season, according to head coach Dennis Allen. Ausberry said he feels more comfortable in the offense, after missing the entire 2013 season with a shoulder injury.
Fantasy Tip: Ausberry will compete with Mychal Rivera for targets. Rivera is a late-round flier as a TE2, while Ausberry should go undrafted, until he proves himself.

Oakland Raiders TEs David Ausberry and Mychal Rivera have been working with the first-team offense during minicamp and both players have nice pass-catching abilities. However, neither player is much of a blocker, and the team is still looking for a blocking tight end to stand out on the roster.
Fantasy Tip: As of now, Rivera should likely be penciled in as the team's No. 1 tight end by default, but a lot can change during training camp, especially if Ausberry makes strides in the blocking department. Rivera could be a sleeper pick as a low-end TE2.
