2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Falcons' brass decided to hand the No. 2 cornerback job over to the 22-year-old Oliver, after Robert Alford ranked as one of Pro Football Focus's lowest-rated starting cornerbacks last season. Oliver doesn't offer a ton of NFL experience (two starts and 14 games played as a rookie), but the coaching staff loves his length and ability to defend the deep ball. It will be a trial by fire situation, with the team hoping that he can improve as the season progresses and help Atlanta improve upon a 27th-place finish in pass defense. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $4.64 million contract with the Falcons in May of 2018.
Starts all 16 games for Falcons

January 3, 2020
Oliver compiled 61 total tackles, 11 pass deflections and one forced fumble across 16 starts for Atlanta in 2019.
ANALYSIS
The sophomore cornerback performed competently during his first full season as a starter, playing 80-plus percent of his team's defensive snaps in 13 of 16 games and leading the Falcons in passes defensed. Oliver proved to be durable in joining Ricardo Allen as the only Falcons defensive backs to start all 16 contests in 2019, but his ability to produce takeaways has been lacking through the first two years of his NFL career. The 23-year-old has just one interception in 30 contests since being drafted No. 58 overall in 2018.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Being the best Colorado cornerback to enter the NFL since 2011, when Jimmy Smith was drafted late in the first round by Baltimore, it came as a surprise that Oliver was still on the board when the Falcons' second selection rolled around at No. 58 overall. Oliver possesses superb length for a defensive back and shows up in press coverage, but the reason he was continually passed on by personnel evaluators in the draft may be due to less than impressive lateral movement, which could be come into play if Atlanta keeps Robert Alford on the outside and asks Oliver to cover out of the slot. Opposing quarterbacks had much more success in exploiting Oliver when they could target shifty receivers running routes that require a change of direction. Take for example the fact that Oliver allowed a passer rating of 64.6 on out patterns in 2017 and a rating of 60.4 on hitches, compared to a stifling rating of 23.8 on go routes, per Pro Football Focus.
