2019 Fantasy Outlook
Oliver had fantastic production during his senior season at San Jose State with 56 receptions for 709 yards and four touchdowns, leading to his selection in the third round of April's draft. He couldn't have landed in a better spot for a chance to compete immediately, as free-agent acquisition Geoff Swaim should enter training camp as the starter. Swaim certainly has more experience, but still has only 336 receiving yards through his first four seasons and is hardly a lock to take on the starting role. At 6-5, 249, Oliver ran a 4.63 40-yard dash and has a 34-inch vertical, so the raw talent is there for him to at least serve as a decent red-zone option in his rookie campaign should he be unable to supplant Swaim as the starter. However, those efforts may need to wait until after the start of the regular season since Oliver suffered a hamstring injury early in training camp. Read Past Outlooks

Rookie campaign derailed by injury
TEJacksonville Jaguars
Back
January 24, 2020
Oliver (back) spent the final six weeks of the season on injured reserve and totaled three catches for 15 yards in four games this season.
ANALYSIS
The rookie third-round pick missed the preseason and the first six games of the year with a hamstring injury, and he didn't see much involvement in the offense before suffering small fractures in his back Week 11. The starting job at tight end remains up for grabs, so a strong offseason could go a long way towards securing a larger role in 2020.
