Raiders | David Ausberry wearing wrap

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 22:00:16 -0700

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.

Raiders | David Ausberry's timetable unknown

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 11:39:04 -0700

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.

Raiders | David Ausberry needs surgery

Tue, 05 Aug 2014 20:14:53 -0700

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.

Raiders | David Ausberry out with injury

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 20:37:31 -0700

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.

Raiders | David Ausberry impressed during offseason workouts

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 14:11:10 -0700

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.

Raiders | David Ausberry could be a receiving threat

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 13:49:56 -0700

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.

Raiders | David Ausberry, Mychal Rivera working with first team

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 12:49:35 -0700

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.

Raiders | David Ausberry expected to get first shot at TE

Thu, 18 Jul 2013 17:23:18 -0700

Oakland Raiders TE David Ausberry is expected to receive the first chance to win the starting tight end job during training camp. TEs Nick Kasa and Mychal Rivera are expected to receive long looks during preseason games. TE Richard Gordon is also expected to be a candidate for the job.

Fantasy Tip: None of the candidates have a lot of experience, so the competition probably will come down to which one performs well during preseason games. Whoever wins the starting job should be seen as a low-end No. 2 fantasy tight end at best.

Raiders | Wide open competition at TE

Mon, 03 Jun 2013 14:38:00 -0700

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said the competition for the starting tight end job is wide open because TEs David Ausberry, Richard Gordon and Mychal Rivera have done well during organized team activities. Allen said the team hopes TE Nick Kasa (hamstring) will be able to practice soon because they feel he can fill a role on offense.

Fantasy Tip: This competition appears to be a four-man race unless the team adds another tight end at some point. The winner of the job likely will not be named until the preseason. Whichever tight end wins the competition, they should be considered a weak No. 2 fantasy tight end.

Raiders | Nick Kasa, Mychal Rivera fill need

Wed, 01 May 2013 19:28:36 -0700

Oakland Raiders rookie TEs Nick Kasa and Mychal Rivera have a chance to make an impact right away, as the team lost TE Brandon Myers (Giants) during the offseason, and have just TEs David Ausberry and Richard Gordon have experience at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Kasa and Rivera, a pair of sixth-round draft picks, will be battling each other, and Ausberry and Gordon, for targets during training camp and the preseason. It is conceivable one or both rookies could emerge as a starter.

Raiders | David Ausberry, Richard Gordon doing little

Fri, 14 Dec 2012 19:49:10 -0800

Oakland Raiders TEs David Ausberry and Richard Gordon each played just one offensive snap in Week 14, as they have obviously fallen well behind TE Brandon Myers on the depth chart. "We've had a chance to look at these guys a little bit," head coach Dennis Allen said. "We kind of know what we've got in these guys. They're still in the lineup, and they'll still be used pretty much the same way we've used them." That means plenty of special teams work for Ausberry and Gordon.
