2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Considered a backup fantasy TE at best going into the 2014 season, Mychal Rivera exceeded expectations his second professional season. Rivera caught 58 passes for 534 yards and four touchdowns, good enough to make him a solid bye week fill-in or even a low-end TE1. Things started off slow, but once Rivera and Carr began to click, they became a good duo. Rivera made six or more catches in five of the Raiders’ final 10 games of the season and caught all four of his touchdowns over that span.

While his chemistry with Cooper and Crabtree is still being ironed out, Carr may lean on Rivera early in the year. That could translate to some nice fantasy numbers, but fantasy owners shouldn’t necessarily expect that to continue throughout the season. As he becomes more comfortable throwing the ball to his new wide receivers, Rivera could become a forgotten man in the offense. It’s also worth noting that the Raiders did draft another tight end, Clive Walford, in the third round of April’s NFL Draft. It’s difficult for rookie tight ends to make an impact and Walford won’t likely get much playing time early, but could cut into Rivera’s snaps enough to reduce his fantasy value later in the season.

Raiders TE Walford to have "significant role"
Rookie third-rounder enjoyed impressive offseason
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 10, 4:55 pm

Oakland Raiders
Rookie TE Clive Walford will have a significant role in Raiders offense this season. Was very impressive during OTAs. (Adam Caplan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Miami (Fla.) product has been sidelined by a strained hamstring recently, but he is expected back soon. Walford was arguably the draft's second-best tight end prospect and his ability to get downfield should allow him to supplant Mychal Rivera as a starter in short order. With Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree demanding attention on the outside, Walford could emerge as a capable fantasy TE2 early in the season.
