2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 2018 season lasted only nine games for Swaim, as he was forced to undergo surgery for a broken wrist in November, and finished the year catching 26-of-32 targets for 242 yards and one touchdown. The numbers were modest, but they still out-produced the Jaguars' leader at tight end, as the position provided little in the passing game all season. Swaim figures to have the upper hand on the starting role but will still have to compete with rookie third-round pick Josh Oliver. Swaim is hardly a sure thing, as 2018 was the first time he eclipsed 100 receiving yards in a season. New quarterback Nick Foles utilized tight ends heavily in Philadelphia, and while Swaim doesn't have the profile of Zach Ertz or Dallas Goedert, he shouldn't have any issues providing reasonable production should he manage to hold off his rookie competition. Swaim is poised to begin the season in the starting role after Oliver sustained a hamstring injury early in training camp, though he'll likely still have to fend off the rookie at some point.

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 seventh-rounder, who started his career with the Cowboys, 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.

Jason Witten's departure leaves the Cowboys woefully short of experience at tight end, and Swaim - with only nine catches in 28 games over three seasons - is the closest thing the team has to a grizzled veteran at the position. Swaim's injury history and lack of standout tools would seem to make him a liability as a starter, but he's got a well-rounded skill set and can fit as a backup who won't tip the offense's hand whether a play is run or pass. The Cowboys may not have the luxury of using Swaim in that role if none of their other TE options impress in training camp, however.
A torn pectoral muscle ended Swaim's season after nine games last year, and offseason foot surgery could limit his snaps in the preseason, but when healthy he's a solid if unremarkable backup to Jason Witten. With athletic specimen Rico Gathers making a push for a roster spot, though, Swaim may find himself squeezed off the roster if he isn't able to fully show what he can do in training camp.
Swaim barely got on the field last year as a rookie, playing in only four games and catching his only target for zero yards. If Gavin Escobar's recovery from a torn Achilles is slower than expected it could push Swaim up the depth chart to begin the season, but he'll need to show more aptitude as a receiver to draw Tony Romo's eye. Even if Swaim does improve, he'll still be stuck behind Jason Witten, so snaps and targets will be tough to come by.
Dallas traded back into the seventh round of this year's draft to nab Swain, an athletic player who was primarily used as a blocking tight end in college after Texas switched offenses early in his career. As a senior at Texas, the 6-foot-4, 250 pound tight end hauled in just 10 passes for 70 yards and a touchdown. The Cowboys think he can be something more down the road, but if he wins a roster spot this season, expect him to primarily contribute on special teams.
