Josh Oliver Fantasy Football News 2019

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.
