Jacksonville Jaguars TE Josh Oliver needs to be more involved in the offense, according to head coach Doug Marrone, but Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com believes 'realistic expectations for the foreseeable future' for Oliver are two or three catches per game.
Huddle Up: The rookie made his debut in Week 7 after being sidelined since the preseason, and he wasn't targeted. With Geoff Swaim and James O'Shaughnessy out for the year, Oliver is going to have a role going forward. However, expecting him to immediately vault into fantasy relevance is a recipe for disappointment. At best, he is a stash candidate in keeper formats.

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars TE Josh Oliver (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 17, and remains on schedule to make his NFL debut in Week 7 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Usually, a rookie tight end making his debut in the middle of the season isn't practically notable, but the Jaguars have been able to get decent production from average talent at the position this season. Oliver is easily the most talented of the bunch but has struggled to get cleared from his preseason injury. Given his athleticism and favorable matchup this week, Oliver could be a sneaky play for owners truly desperate at the position.
