Oakland Raiders TE Mychal Rivera is expected to be available in a trade as the NFL Draft approaches.
Fantasy Tip: Rivera took a step back in 2015 with 32 catches for 280 yards and just one touchdown after having eight combined scores in the previous two seasons. He's a big-bodies pass-catching tight end that could rebound in the right situation, but he's more of TE2 material.

Oakland Raiders TE Mychal Rivera posted three receptions for 49 yards in the Week 14 game against the Denver Broncos.
Fantasy Tip: The touchdown was Rivera's first of the season, so don't get terribly excited about his fantasy prospects going forward.
Tue, 08 Sep 2015 12:24:11 -0700
Oakland Raiders TE Mychal Rivera is listed as the starting tight end on the Raiders' depth chart.
Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) was an underrated fantasy tight end last year. The Raiders have new weapons in the passing game with Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, but Rivera could still be the safety blanket for QB Derek Carr. He has good value on FantasyScore this week.

Oakland Raiders TE Mychal Rivera served as the starting tight end Friday, Aug. 14, ahead of Clive Walford and Lee Smith.
Fantasy Tip: It makes sense that Rivera would get the first crack to prove he should be the Raiders' starting tight end. He tallied 58 catches for 534 yards and four touchdowns last year. He's not worthy of TE1 consideration, but he could prove to be a sneaky TE2, specifically in PPR scoring formats.

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.
Tue, 05 Aug 2014 22:55:09 -0700
Oakland Raiders TEs Nick Kasa and Brian Leonhardt will work behind TE Mychal Rivera in training camp and the preseason while TE David Ausberry (knee) is sidelined.
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.
