Ravens trade for TE | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

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.
