Tops 150 points in loss
MMelbourne Demons
May 22, 2021
Oliver scored three goals and one behind to go with 38 disposals (20 kicks, 18 handballs) in addition to making nine tackles during Saturday's 96-95 loss to Adelaide.
ANALYSIS
Oliver gave his team a healthy lead heading into the final moments of the game but the Crows were too much to handle in their own late push. Still, Oliver could easily finish Round 10 with the most points of any player in the league despite losing for the first time this season. What will be worth seeing even more is how he matches up with the Western Bulldogs in their show-stopping Round 11 clash.
Second-straight 100-point outing
MMelbourne Demons
May 17, 2021
Oliver collected 28 disposals on 15 kicks and 13 handballs and added ten tackles, seven clearances, two behinds, two goal assists and a mark and goal each Sunday as Melbourne defeated Carlton 94-68 at MCG.
ANALYSIS
Oliver produced season-highs for goal-assists and tackles and netted just his second goal of 2021 on Sunday. His 28 disposals also leaves him with 283 on the year, third-best in the AFL. The 23 year-old continues to put up solid numbers across multiple-categories and currently sits in the top ten for the league for total handballs (3) , tackles (7), clearances (4) and score involvements (10). That's consequently translated to impressive fantasy numbers and finds Oliver now averaging an impressive 110.7 points per game.
Remains active in win
MMelbourne Demons
May 9, 2021
Oliver garnered a team-high 35 disposals (15 kicks, 20 handballs) and 10 total clearances, adding five tackles and one mark in Melbourne's win over Sydney on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
The midfielder continued highly active in Saturday's win, hitting the 30-disposal mark for the fourth time in the last five matches. Oliver now has double-digit total clearances on two occasions over the last seven matches as well, and he's tallied no fewer than five tackles in any of the last five matches.
Busy in win
MMelbourne Demons
April 18, 2021
Oliver logged two behinds to go with 30 disposals (13 kicks, 17 handballs) and made eight tackles during Sunday's 104-54 win over Hawthorn.
ANALYSIS
Oliver likes to go stride for stride with Max Gawn as the most productive player on this team, though Gawn appears to have his nose in front for now. In either case, Oliver and the rest of the midfield for the Dees will continue to be high-value pickups in their current run of form.
Commits to Dees through 2023
MMelbourne Demons
April 13, 2021
Oliver signed a two-year contract extension with Melbourne that ties him to the club through 2023.
ANALYSIS
Oliver has been one of the better midfielders in the league over the last two seasons and he's played a starring role in the Dees' early undefeated run to start the season. So far, he's logged 34-or-more disposals on three occasions in 2021, which have al resulted in over 100 fantasy points recorded.
