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.

The Oakland Raiders have signed sixth-round draft choices TE Nick Kasa, RB Latavius Murray, TE Mychal Rivera and DT Stacy McGee as well as seventh-round draft choice WR Brice Butler and DE David Bass. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
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.
