Geoff Swaim: Let go by Jaguars

The Jaguars will release Swaim (concussion/ankle), Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Swaim logged 13 catches for 65 yards in six games during his lone season with Jacksonville in 2019 before being placed on IR in October. The 2015 Dallas seventh-rounder will now look to catch on elsewhere, but he'd need to land in an ideal situation in order to carve out any sort of high-volume passing role.

Geoff Swaim: Quiet first season in Jacksonville

Swaim (concussion/ankle) finished the season on injured reserve and had 13 catches for 65 yards in six games.

Analysis: The 26-year-old signed a two-year, $6.6 million contract with the Jaguars in the spring, but he barely played more than 50 percent of the offensive snaps before landing on IR in October, despite rookie Josh Oliver also being sidelined. Jacksonville could save over $3.7 million in cap space by released Swaim, so he's certainly not guaranteed to be back in 2020 despite currently being under contract.

Geoff Swaim: Ruled out Week 7

Swaim (concussion/ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Cincinnati.

Analysis: Swaim sustained the concussion and ankle injury during last Sunday's loss to the Saints and was unable to practice this week. Rookie Josh Oliver (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation and is primed to make his NFL debut against the Bengals. Seth DeValve should also see a decent share of offensive snaps this week.

Geoff Swaim: Can't practice, as expected

Swaim (concussion/ankle) did not practice Thursday.

Analysis: Swaim has now missed two straight practices. In addition to working his way through the league's concussion protocol, he appears to be dealing with ankle injury. Barring any major developments during Friday's practice, Swaim is on track to miss Sunday's tilt against the Bengals. On a positive note for the Jaguars, rookie tight end Josh Oliver (hamstring) could make his NFL debut Week 7.

Geoff Swaim: To miss practice Thursday

Swaim (concussion/ankle) is not expected to practice Thursday.

Analysis: This will be the second straight day of missed practice for Swaim, who appears to still be going through concussion protocol after the injury forced him to leave Sunday's game against the Saints. The report also states that Swaim picked up an ankle injury, so it looks like the tight end is at serious risk of missing Sunday's matchup with the Bengals. Swaim is the third tight end to pop up on the injury report for the Jaguars and has left the team rather thin at the position heading into Week 7.

Geoff Swaim: Dealing with concussion

Swaim (concussion) won't practice Wednesday, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: With James O'Shaughnessy (knee) out for the season, Josh Oliver still recovering from a hamstring injury and Swaim in the concussion protocol, Seth DeValve and Ben Koyack are left as the healthy tight ends in Jacksonville. There is a chance that Swaim and/or Oliver could be ready for Sunday's game in Cincinnati. Swaim and DeValve drew two targets apiece in last week's 13-6 loss to the Saints.

Geoff Swaim: Exits Sunday's game

Swaim was forced out of Sunday's game against the Saints with a possible concussion, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Analysis: Prior to his exit from the contest, Swaim caught one of his two targets for five yards. Next up for the Jaguars' tight end targets in his absence is Seth DeValve.

Geoff Swaim: Quiet in Week 5

Swaim caught his lone target for four yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Analysis: The 26-year-old played 43 offensive snaps Sunday -- his highest total this season -- but the end result was his worst output through five games. Starter James O'Shaughnessy suffered a torn ACL and is out for the season, which should thrust Swaim into the starting role. Swaim should see an uptick in playing time due to the injury, but until he finds himself more involved in the passing game he shouldn't be considered as a fantasy option.

Geoff Swaim: Catches three passes

Swaim caught three of four yards for 17 yards in Sunday's win against the Broncos.

Analysis: Swaim saw his highest snap count of the season (41) as he almost split snaps with James O'Shaughnessy (undisclosed), but O'Shaughnessy still outproduced him as his lone catch was an 18-yard touchdown. Swaim has seen four targets in three of four games this season which is solid for the team's secondary tight end, but his 5.1 yards per reception handicaps any fantasy potential in deeper leagues.

Geoff Swaim: Suits up Sunday

Swaim is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Analysis: With eight catches (on 10 targets) for 39 yards over his first three games to date, Swaim is only an option in the deepest of fantasy formats, while working in a tight end time share with James O'Shaughnessy.

September 29, 2019 12:07 PM EST

Geoff Swaim: Game-time call Sunday

Swaim is dealing with an illness and is a game-time decision for Sunday's game versus the Broncos, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Swaim becoming ill just a day before the game will make it tough for him to play. The fifth-year pro hasn't had a major impact on offense yet with eight receptions for 39 scoreless yards, but the Jaguars' tight-end depth is already suspect with Josh Oliver (hamstring) out. If Swaim can't go, James O'Shaughnessy should be afforded a large workload with Seth DeValve rotates in.

September 28, 2019 10:45 AM EST

Geoff Swaim: One catch in win

Swaim caught one of two targets for eight yards in Thursday's 20-7 win over the Titans.

Analysis: Swaim played only 21 snaps on offense (39 percent) while James O'Shaughnessy played 42 (78 percent) and caught a touchdown. The 2015 seventh-round pick appears to be operating as the clear No. 2 tight end in Jacksonville, and he isn't a notable factor in the team's passing game.

September 20, 2019 8:09 AM EST

Geoff Swaim: Minor role Sunday

Swaim caught three of four targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 13-12 loss at Houston.

Analysis: The 25-year-old found himself working as the secondary tight end for the second straight game behind James O'Shaughnessy (four catches for 28 yards). Swaim has seven receptions for 31 yards through two weeks and doesn't appear to be a worthwhile option in the Jaguars' passing game.

September 16, 2019 7:06 AM EST

Geoff Swaim: 17 yards in season opener

Swaim caught all four of his targets for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to Chiefs.

Analysis: James O'Shaughnessy received the start and served as the Jaguars' top tight end Sunday, catching four of five targets for 32 yards and playing 38 snaps to Swaim's 29. Both players are listed as starters since Jacksonville's depth chart features two tight ends, but O'Shaughnessy was the favorite for playing time and production in Week 1. Swaim certainly has more upside between the two, but his season is off to a rocky start.

Geoff Swaim: Not on injury report

Swaim (foot) does not appear on the Jaguars' Week 1 injury report.

Analysis: Swaim -- who is listed as the team's starting tight end - hasn't generated much fantasy buzz heading into the 2019 season, but we suppose that the former Dallas Cowboy could move up the ranks in the coming weeks if he displays good chemistry with Jacksonville's new QB Nick Foles.

September 4, 2019 1:13 PM EST

Geoff Swaim: Will practice in limited fashion

Swaim, who has been tending to a foot injury, is slated to practice Monday in a limited fashion, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Swaim has missed the Jaguars' past two preseason contests due to the injury and probably won't be fully cleared in time for Thursday's exhibition finale versus the Falcons, but his return to the practice field increases his odds of being ready to go for the Week 1 matchup with the Chiefs on Sept. 8. Heading into training camp, Swaim was the clear frontrunner for the starting job at tight end, but the competition may have gotten tighter in light of the time he's missed. After notching 26 receptions for 242 yards and a touchdown in nine games with Dallas in 2018, Swaim probably won't be much more than a tertiary option in the Jacksonville passing game even if he ends up dominating the snaps at his position.

Geoff Swaim: Won't play Thursday

Swaim (undisclosed) will not play in Thursday's preseason contest against the Dolphins, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Analysis: Swaim appears to still be managing an undisclosed injury, the severity of which kept him sidelined for last Thursday's exhibition match against Philadelphia. The 25-year-old projects to start at tight end for the Jaguars when healthy, though he could face pressure from rookie Josh Oliver (hamstring) down the road.

August 21, 2019 7:59 AM EST

Geoff Swaim: Not expected to play Thursday

Swaim isn't expected to play in Thursday's preseason matchup with Philadelphia due to an undisclosed injury, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Analysis: It's unclear how serious Swaim's injury is, although head coach Doug Marrone could just be exercising caution with the 25-year-old. With Josh Oliver sidelined due to a hamstring injury, Swaim figures to fill the starting tight end role in Jacksonville.

August 15, 2019 3:39 PM EST

Geoff Swaim: Catches lone target

Swaim caught his only target for six yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens.

Analysis: Swaim was one of the few starters to take the field for the Jaguars and played only 15 offensive snaps. The performance doesn't move the needle for the 25-year-old, who's locked in as the starter with Josh Oliver (hamstring) sidelined.

August 9, 2019 9:24 AM EST

Geoff Swaim: Primed for starting role

Swaim is the clear favorite to begin the season as the Jaguars' starting tight end, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Swaim entered training camp with an edge for the starting job over rookie third-round pick Josh Oliver, but now that Oliver is sidelined with a hamstring injury Swaim should begin the season as the top option at the position. The 25-year-old played in only nine games with Dallas due to wrist surgery last season and posted a modest 26 receptions for 242 yards and one touchdown, which still eclipsed Jacksonville's most productive tight end. If Swaim can stay healthy he should provide a sizable red-zone option for QB Nick Foles in an offense lacking elite pass catchers.
