Oliver said after Thursday's OTA workout that he's feeling more confidence this year than he did heading into his rookie campaign, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "It's probably going to be like that throughout my career from year to year," Oliver admitted. "But yeah, that's the biggest jump that I made. Becoming more confident in the scheme of things."
Atlanta's patience with Oliver was rewarded in 2018, as the second-round draft choice grew into a reliable component of the secondary after a shaky start to the year. Oliver's development was a key reason for Atlanta's improvement from 304.3 passing yards allowed per game over its first eight outings, to 214.9 passing yards allowed per game over the final eight. Both his on-field audition as well as his football IQ factored into the decision, but Atlanta's front office saw enough in Oliver to bestow upon him the No. 2 cornerback role. Expect Oliver to field around 80-to-85 percent of the team's defensive snaps in 2019 after handling 21.9 percent of the snaps as a rookie.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Being the best Colorado cornerback to enter the NFL since 2011, when Jimmy Smith was drafted late in the first round by Baltimore, it came as a surprise that Oliver was still on the board when the Falcons' second selection rolled around at No. 58 overall. Oliver possesses superb length for a defensive back and shows up in press coverage, but the reason he was continually passed on by personnel evaluators in the draft may be due to less than impressive lateral movement, which could be come into play if Atlanta keeps Robert Alford on the outside and asks Oliver to cover out of the slot. Opposing quarterbacks had much more success in exploiting Oliver when they could target shifty receivers running routes that require a change of direction. Take for example the fact that Oliver allowed a passer rating of 64.6 on out patterns in 2017 and a rating of 60.4 on hitches, compared to a stifling rating of 23.8 on go routes, per Pro Football Focus.
