2019 Fantasy Outlook
Oliver, who looks like a draft-day steal after the Bills snagged him ninth overall this past April, isn't a towering defensive line presence at just 6-foot-2, 287 pounds, but he's an exceptional athlete who was extremely productive in college. As a rookie, Oliver will look to win a starting defensive tackle job right away. Star Lotulelei is the plugger on the Buffalo line, while Oliver is expected to beat out Harrison and Jordan Phillips to earn the majority of the time as the other starter. Read Past Outlooks

Numbers not there

October 2, 2019
Oliver played 42 defensive snaps but did not record a tackle or sack during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
ANALYSIS
While the No. 9 overall pick in April hasn't taken the league by storm yet, the Bills coaches seemed pleased with Oliver's play even though he's yet to get to the quarterback and has only five tackles through his first four NFL games. More specifically, he's not getting caught out of position on too many occasions and he's doing a decent job clogging up space. The numbers will come around, but for now, Oliver is far removed from the IDP radar. He's gotten between 59 and 65 percent of the defensive snaps in each of the team's games so far.
