Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Set for sophomore season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (back) should be healthy for training camp after appearing in only three games as a rookie, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

The 2019 third-round pick missed the preseason with a hamstring injury and went down with a back issue after returning to the field, as he finished the season with three catches for 15 yards. Tyler Eifert was signed in March and is expected to start in 2020, while Oliver is likely to compete for reps behind him with James O'Shaughnessy (knee) and rookie Tyler Davis.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Rookie campaign derailed by injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

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.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars placed Oliver (back) on injured reserve Monday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Oliver suffered fractures in his back during Sunday's 33-13 loss to the Colts, the severity of which will now cause him to spend the rest of the season on IR. The 22-year-old caught three of six targets for 15 yards across four games in his rookie campaign. With Seth DeValve (oblique) nursing an injury, the Jaguars could be forced to work with Nick O'Leary (who the team signed in free agency Monday) and Ben Koyack at tight end Week 12.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Dealing with fractures in back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver was diagnosed with small fractures in his back after he exited Sunday's 33-13 loss to the Colts, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Jaguars didn't provide an update on Oliver's condition after the game, but Rapoport notes that the tight end is expected to miss multiple weeks as a result of the injury and could be a candidate for injured reserve. Jacksonville was already down another of its pass-catching tight ends (Seth DeValve, oblique) heading into the contest, spurring the team's decision to sign free agent Nick O'Leary. Unless DeValve is back for the Week 12 game against the Titans, Jacksonville will likely have O'Leary and blocking specialist Ben Koyack as its lone available tight ends in that contest. Oliver caught one of two targets for a five-yard gain in the loss to Indianapolis.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Leaves Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (back) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Colts, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

It's unclear how Oliver picked up the injury, but this is tough news for him, considering he was in line for an increased snap count Sunday. With him and Seth DeValve (oblique) sidelined as well, the only healthy tight end left on the roster is Ben Koyack. Oliver left late in the fourth quarter, so in the likely event he doesn't return, expect specifics from the team in the coming days regarding the injury.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Role expected to expand Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver is expected to handle a heavier snap count Sunday against the Colts with Seth DeValve (oblique) inactive for the contest, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

DeValve had played more than half of the Jaguars' offensive snaps in each of the pass three games and garnered eight targets in that span, so some modest volume in the passing game will be up for grabs. While the Jaguars may end up filtering more of DeValve's looks to their running backs or receivers, Oliver represents a better candidate to draw targets than the lone other healthy tight end, blocking specialist Ben Koyack. After an injury delayed start to his NFL career, the rookie caught two of four targets for 10 yards in the Jaguars' two games prior to the team's Week 10 bye.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Grabs one pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver caught one of two targets for four yards in Sunday's loss to the Texans.

The rookie third-round pick played only four fewer snaps than starter Seth DeValve, but the latter had four catches on five targets for 41 yards. Oliver has caught two of four targets for 10 yards in his first three games and remains off the fantasy radar until he becomes more involved in the passing game.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Makes first career catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver caught one of two targets for six yards in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Offensive coordinator John DeFilippo indicated the rookie third-round pick would be more involved in Week 8, but he ended up seeing only a slight uptick in snaps and again worked behind starter Seth DeValve as the team's second tight end. No. 3 tight end Ben Koyack actually only played one fewer snap, though he wasn't targeted. Oliver and DeValve have combined for three catches and 17 yards in the last two games, keeping them both out of fantasy consideration until they become more involved.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Could see role expand Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Offensive coordinator John DeFilippo suggested Thursday that Oliver could have an expanded role on offense in Jacksonville's Week 8 game against the Jets, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports. "I think you'll see more of Josh this week," DeFilippo said.

After missing Jacksonville's first six games with a hamstring injury, the rookie third-round pick was cleared to make his debut in last week's win over Cincinnati. Oliver wasn't targeted in the contest while playing 25 offensive snaps, trailing Seth DeValve (49) for the team lead among tight ends. Jacksonville saw its depth at the position take a hit when Geoff Swaim (concussion/ankle) joined James O'Shaughnessy (knee) on injured reserve earlier this week, so both Oliver and DeValve should have opportunities over the next several games to vie for the top spot on the depth chart.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Minimally involved in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver was not targeted in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

The rookie third-round pick was expected to make the start Sunday with Geoff Swaim (concussion/ankle) sidelined, but Seth DeValve ended up receiving the starting nod. Oliver played only 25 offensive snaps in his NFL debut and was significantly out-snapped by DeValve (49) and Ben Koyack (43) at tight end, though none of the three caught any passes. Oliver should remain off the fantasy radar until he sees more playing time and actually establishes himself in the passing game.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Receives starting nod in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver is expected to start Sunday's game against the Bengals.

The 22-year-old missed the entire preseason and the first six weeks of the regular season due to the hamstring injury, but he'll be thrust into the starting role Week 7 in his NFL debut. Geoff Swaim (concussion/ankle) is inactive while James O'Shaughnessy (knee) is out for the season, leaving Oliver a prime opportunity to stake his claim for the No. 1 job at tight end.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Set for NFL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Oliver began the week as a limited practice participant but progressed to full participation Thursday and Friday to clear the way for his NFL debut this weekend. The rookie third-round pick has been sidelined since early August by the hamstring injury, but could have an immediate role in the offense with Geoff Swaim (concussion/ankle) sidelined and James O'Shaughnessy (knee) out for the year. Oliver is mostly just a speculative stash in fantasy until he shows what he can do on the field.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

Oliver appears ready to make his NFL debut against the Bengals on Sunday, barring any setbacks. The rookie third-round pick could be in line for a key role in Jacksonville's offense, with Geoff Swaim nursing a concussion. Still, he isn't yet worth fantasy consideration in leagues that start a single tight end.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Limited for practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant for Wednesday's practice.

Oliver has yet to suit up in game action this season due to the lingering hamstring injury, but coach Doug Marrone said Monday that he thinks Oliver could suit up Sunday. Considering Geoff Swaim is nursing a concussion and James O'Shaughnessy (knee) resides on injured reserve, Oliver could play for a key role in the offense against the Bengals if fully healthy. Expect his practice availability to show a more accurate picture throughout the week.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Could play Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that Oliver (hamstring) could have a chance to play Sunday against the Bengals, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

With Geoff Swaim nursing a concussion and James O'Shaughnessy (knee) on injured reserve, Oliver could be in line for a key role on offense versus the Bengals if healthy. That said, a lingering hamstring issue has kept the rookie sidelined the previous six contests, so Oliver isn't a lock to fully recover in time to suit up Week 7.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Won't return Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Oliver was a limited participant again this week but won't make his NFL debut against New Orleans. Geoff Swaim is primed for a heavy snap count this week with James O'Shaughnessy (knee) out for the season.

October 10, 2019 12:24 AM
Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Remains limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (hamstring) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

It's the fourth straight practice as a limited participant while Oliver continues progressing toward his return from the hamstring injury sustained in early August. The rookie third-round pick should have a chance to carve out a solid role in the offense once he's cleared for game action; No. 1 tight end James O'Shaughnessy was lost for the season with a torn ACL.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Remains sidelined Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Carolina.

Oliver was a limited participant at practice this week and will miss his fifth straight game with the hamstring injury. The rookie third-round pick will likely need to advance to full practice participation before having a chance to take the field. James O'Shaughnessy and Geoff Swaim will continue to work as the Jaguars' top two tight ends.

Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Ruled out for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL reports.

Oliver continues to nurse a lingering hamstring injury, and he'll now miss a fourth consecutive contest. A timetable for the rookie third-round pick's recovery remains undisclosed.

September 26, 2019 11:20 AM
Jaguars' Josh Oliver: Absent from practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (hamstring) won't practice Thursday, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

Oliver managed to log a limited practice session Wednesday, but he's been downgraded to individual work Thursday. Per John Reid of The Florida Times-Union, the Jaguars have suggested that Oliver hasn't suffered a setback and his lack of practice involvement Thursday is standard protocol for his recovery from the hamstring issue. Regardless, Oliver's availability for Sunday's game against the Broncos still looks murky.
