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.
