3.) Michael Mayer vs. Kansas City Chiefs

It is always tough to predict rookie receiving options, especially given the situation that the Las Vegas Raiders are in. Even though they have won two of their last three games behind quarterback Aidan O’Connell, the Raiders still have yet to have a true and impressive win against a good team. However, rookie tight end Michael Mayer has been improving each week as the season progresses. In the last two games, Mayer has been targeted 5 times in each game and was able to get into the endzone for the first time in Week 10. 

It is safe to say that the Raiders will more than likely be playing from behind at some point, and wideout Davante Adams will be the main guy for the Chiefs to take away. This could leave open opportunities for Mayer to get some looks and catches to help move the chains for Las Vegas. If you have Mayer, consider starting him if there is not another tight end option for you.
