Mychal Rivera is going into the final year of his rookie contract after being drafted No. 184 in 2013. The Raiders have openly said that they are open to trading the 6’3", 245 lb tight end. He catches the ball well but is a liability as a blocker and offers little after catch ability.
Rivera fell back on the depth chart last season behind rookie Clive Walford for targets in the pass game and at times Lee Smith in blocking situations.
2016 Bottom Line
Rivera is depth at the tight end for the Raiders at this point and should not be on your fantasy radar unless playing in a deep dynasty format.
