Oates missed the first 2 matches of the season with a knee injury, returning in round 3 against the Sydney Roosters.[9] On 18 July, he was demoted to the Queensland Cup along with Jack Reed and Daniel Vidot by coach Anthony Griffin after breaching team protocol with a mid-week boozing session.[10][11] Oates returned a week later, playing off the bench in the Broncos 8-30 loss against the Storm.[12] He finished the season with him playing in 20 matches and scoring 5 tries. On 9 October, Oates extended his contract with the Broncos, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2017 season.[13][14]


In round 9, against the Penrith Panthers, Oates scored the winning try with 2 minutes to go in the Broncos' 8-5 win.[15] In round 25, Oates scored a 95-metre try against the South Sydney Rabbitohs, fending off an attempted tackle from Dylan Walker in doing so.[16] Leading into the Broncos' 2015 finals campaign, Oates edged out Lachlan Maranta for the left wing spot. On 4 October, Oates played on the wing and scored the first try of the match in the Broncos' 16-17 golden point extra time loss to the North Queensland Cowboys in the 2015 NRL Grand Final.[17][18] He finished the season with 14 tries from 25 matches.[19]


On 12 January 2016, Oates was selected in the QAS Emerging Maroons squad.[20] In February 2016, Oates was named in the Broncos 2016 NRL Auckland Nines squad, but was later ruled out.[21] In Round 7 against the Newcastle Knights, Oates scored his first career hatrick of tries in the Broncos smashing 53-0 win at Suncorp Stadium.[22] After showing some great try scoring form in the early rounds, Oates earn himself a wing spot for Queensland in the 2016 State of Origin series.[23] On 1 June 2016 Oates made his debut for Queensland in Game 1, on the wing in the Maroons low scoring 6-4 win at ANZ Stadium.[24] In Game 2 of the series, Oates scored his first try for the Maroons in the series winning 26-16 victory at Suncorp Stadium.[25] Oates finished the 2016 NRL season as the Broncos highest tryscorer with 18 tries in 22 matches.

After another solid start to the season, Oates was selected for Queensland on the wing for Game 1 of the 2017 State of Origin series, scoring the Maroons only try in the shock 28-4 loss against New South Wales at Suncorp Stadium.[27] Despite being the lone try scorer for Queensland, Oates was axed from the team for Game 2 in favour of Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks flyer Valentine Holmes in one of many omissions from the Maroons team.[28][29] In late June 2017, Oates was hospitalised with a staph infection that was affecting his lower body and was sidelined for 6 weeks.[30][31] Oates later made his return in Round 22 in the local derby match against the Gold Coast Titans, scoring a try in the 54-0 smashing win at Robina Stadium.[32] In the Broncos' do-or-die semifinal match against the Penrith Panthers, After scoring a try early in the match, Oates was on the receiving end of a sickening head clash by an accidental shoulder by teammate Anthony Milford and was knocked unconscious while they attempted to stop an attacking raid close to their tryline in the Broncos hard-fought 13-6 victory at Suncorp Stadium.[33] After suffering the heavy knock, Oates was later cleared of concussion and played in the Broncos' disappointing season-ending 30-0 preliminary finals loss against the Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park.[34][35] Oates finished the 2017 NRL season with him playing in 21 matches and scoring 15 tries for the Broncos.


Before the start of the season, Oates made a request to switch from the wing to second-row due to his bigger frame being more suited to the forwards.[36] In March 2018, Oates who is off contract at the end of the year, attracted the attention of the North Queensland Cowboys and the South Sydney Rabbitohs for his signature and a promise of a permanent place in the forwards.[37][38] In Round 3 against the Wests Tigers, Oates played his 100th NRL career match in the Broncos 9-7 win at Campbelltown Stadium.[39][40] Oates returned to State of Origin for game 3 after captain Greg Inglis was ruled out injured playing in the 18-12 victory for Queensland. In Round 25, Oates scored 4 tries against the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.
