2020 Fantasy Outlook
Oliver appeared to have a chance to compete for significant playing time entering his rookie campaign, but he missed the first six games with a hamstring injury and later landed on injured reserve with small fractures in his back. The 2019 third-round pick appeared in only four games and caught three passes for 15 yards. Tyler Eifert signed as a free agent and is poised to start after appearing in all 16 games for the first time in his career last season. Oliver was expected to battle James O'Shaughnessy for the No. 2 job, but a foot injury during training camp sent Oliver to injured reserve instead. Read Past Outlooks

Oliver (foot) won't be eligible to return from injured reserve, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
ANALYSIS
If the Jaguars wanted Oliver to be eligible to return, they would've had to wait until Sept. 6 to place him on injured reserve. As is, the 2019 third-round pick will miss the entire 2020 campaign while he recovers from surgery on a broken foot. Oliver missed 12 games last year with hamstring and back injuries, so his luck couldn't be much worse through two pro seasons. Meanwhile, Tyler Eifert is left with light competition for TE targets in Jacksonville.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Oliver had fantastic production during his senior season at San Jose State with 56 receptions for 709 yards and four touchdowns, leading to his selection in the third round of April's draft. He couldn't have landed in a better spot for a chance to compete immediately, as free-agent acquisition Geoff Swaim should enter training camp as the starter. Swaim certainly has more experience, but still has only 336 receiving yards through his first four seasons and is hardly a lock to take on the starting role. At 6-5, 249, Oliver ran a 4.63 40-yard dash and has a 34-inch vertical, so the raw talent is there for him to at least serve as a decent red-zone option in his rookie campaign should he be unable to supplant Swaim as the starter. However, those efforts may need to wait until after the start of the regular season since Oliver suffered a hamstring injury early in training camp.
