TE - JAC - IR
Week 7 Outlook
Jaguars TE Josh Oliver has been placed on season-ending IR due to a broken foot he suffered earlier in the week.
Oliver’s season is officially over as any player placed on IR prior to September 6 at 4:00 PM is not eligible to return. It’ll be Tyler Eifert as the primary pass-catching tight end in Jacksonville this season.
Jaguars TE Josh Oliver suffered a broken foot in practice and will undergo surgery Tuesday.
Another tough break for the 2019 third-round draft choice, who missed 12 games his rookie season battling injury. Many had high hopes for the second-year tight end this season, but he’ll have to wait a while once again before he hits the playing field after suffering a broken foot in practice. Tyler Eifert, an injury-prone player himself, will be asked to shoulder even more of the load at the TE position this season in Jacksonville. James O’Shaughnessy should be the primary backup.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Josh Oliver hauled in one of his two targets for five yards receiving in Week 11.
Josh Oliver played 54 percent of the team's snaps, but did not see an expanded role with Nick Foles under center. Oliver has had a disappointing rookie season despite injuries to Geoff Swaim and James O'Shaughnessy.
Josh Oliver caught one of his two targets for four yards on Sunday as the Jaguars lost to the Texans in London by a 26-3 score.
Oliver has a real chance of moving into the starting TE role for the Jaguars but has not done much on the field. The rookie has just two catches on four targets over the last three games and is not worth picking up in fantasy.
Josh Oliver caught one pass on two targets on Sunday as the Jaguars beat the Jets by a 29-15 score in Week 8 action.
After missing Jacksonville's first six games with a hamstring injury, it looked like Oliver would see a big role for the Jaguars. But has only seen two targets over his two games back and can be left on the waiver wire.
