Derek Carr, Mychal Rivera, Brian Leonhardt’s Post-Week 10 Fantasy Reaction

The Oakland Raiders remain a black hole both on the football field and in the fantasy realm. Oakland limped to a 41-17 defeat on Sunday at the hands of the Denver Broncos to move to 0-9 on the season.

Although Derek Carr attempted 47 throws, he couldn't even eclipse 200 yards.

Tight end Mychal Rivera had the best day of any Raiders offensive player, while fellow tight end Brian Leonhardt registered little impact.

Of the three, Rivera's the only one who should warrant any fantasy interest going forward. He's looked good over the last couple of weeks, combining for 14 receptions, 102 yards and three touchdowns. If the 24-year-old can keep that consistency, he'd be worth starting on a regular basis. For now, Rivera's more of a matchup option.

And as long as Rivera's healthy, Leonhardt isn't worth more than a passing glance. He may have had that touchdown in Week 4, but Rivera's presence will ensure Leonhardt doesn't get many targets.

You could have Carr on your roster for the simple fact that he is a regular starting quarterback, but his value doesn't extend much beyond that.
