Ravens TE Isaiah Likely (ankle) was a full-go in Thursday's practice, putting him in line to return for this weekend's game vs. the Broncos. Likely isn't a viable fantasy play, but his presence takes TE Josh Oliver out of consideration in even the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson ran for 89 yards Sunday against the Jaguars to power a quality fantasy outing. He rushed a season-high 14 times and narrowly missed a 4th-quarter TD when tackled just short of the goal line. (RB Gus Edwards scored 2 plays later.) Jackson completed just half of his 32 pass attempts but tallied 254 yards, his 2nd largest total of the season. A 62-yard connection with WR DeSean Jackson helped, as did a 40-yarder to TE Josh Oliver. The latter led the team with 76 yards on 4 receptions, matching TE Mark Andrews for the team catch lead. Jackson caught 2 of 3 targets for 74 yards. WRs Devin Duvernay and Demarcus Robinson combined for just 4 receptions and 40 yards. Baltimore gets a tougher Denver pass defense in Week 13.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews racked up 8-89-2 receiving on 13 targets in Sunday's win over the Patriots. That accounted for 44.8% of QB Lamar Jackson's total pass attempts, with just 1 other Raven topping 2 targets. That was WR Rashod Bateman, who caught 2 of 4 looks for 59 yards. WR Devin Duvernay and TE Josh Oliver snagged Jackson's other 2 TD passes. New England ranked among the league's toughest matchups for TEs last season. Although the Pats missed S Kyle Dugger in this game, let the result remind you that we need not fear matchups when it comes to Andrews. Bateman will generally find more favorable conditions than he had Sunday.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the Jaguars are trading TE Josh Oliver to the Ravens for a conditional draft pick. Oliver is an intriguing talent who arrived via Round 3 of the 2019 draft, but injuries have kept him almost completely off the field since. Baltimore doesn’t offer muc immediate opportunity, with Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle leading the depth chart. But we’ll see if a change of scenery can get anything going.

Jaguars TE Josh Oliver broke his foot in Sunday's practice, HC Doug Marrone announced. Oliver will undergo surgery on Tuesday and figures to miss a big chunk of the season. He's off the redraft radar. Oliver's absence basically guarantees that Tyler Eifert will open the season as Jacksonville's lead TE. He's worth a look at the end of fantasy drafts.

Update: Oliver has been placed on IR and will miss the 2020 season.

The Jaguars have agreed to a 2-year deal with TE Tyler Eifert, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Eifert joins a roster whose most productive TE had been James O'Shaughnessy, with a top season of 24 receptions in 2018. Jacksonville drafted TE Josh Oliver in Round 3 last year, but he appeared in only 4 games because of injury. Eifert reunites with new Jaguars OC Jay Gruden, who coordinated the Bengals offense back when Cincinnati drafted Eifert in 2013. Eifert made it through 16 games for the 1st time in his career last season, posting a 43-436-3 receiving line in his age-29 season. If he hits August as Jacksonville's lead TE, Eifert should present at least spot-start potential.

Jaguars TE Geoff Swaim (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bengals. Rookie TE Josh Oliver (hamstring) looks ready to make his debut but isn’t a realistic Week 7 fantasy play.

Jaguars TE James O'Shaughnessy has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season. O'Shaughnessy was quietly averaging 4 targets and 2.8 catches per game. His absence leaves TE Geoff Swaim atop the depth chart, although Jacksonville is expected to get rookie TE Josh Oliver (hamstring) back soon.

Jaguars TE Josh Oliver has what HC Doug Marrone called a "serious" hamstring injury. "I don't know how he heals. I don't know how he'll react to it," Marrone admitted. "I'd like to be able to get him back but we'll prepare and get everyone else reps." We'll see when Oliver is able to get back on the field, but he wasn't much of a redraft option anyway. The rookie's absence leaves Geoff Swaim as Jacksonville's top TE.

The Jaguars added San Jose State TE Josh Oliver in the 3rd round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He led the Spartans with 56 catches this past season, racking up 709 yards and 4 TDs. But he ranked just 18th in this year’s TE class in yards per route run, according to Pro Football Focus. The 6’5, 249-pounder registered a 45th percentile SPARQ score at the Combine. A catch-first TE, Oliver boasts intriguing fantasy upside and could make an immediate impact amid a weak Jags TE group.
