  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Scores once

    Swift ran for 30 yards and one touchdown on seven carries and caught four passes for 16 yards on five targets against Green Bay on Sunday.

    Swift again saw a limited workload from scrimmage, while Jamaal Williams saw 13 carries and Craig Reynolds took three. Williams produced 43 yards and Reynolds two, reinforcing the fact that Swift is clearly Detroit's best running back from scrimmage. Swift is an explosive runner and skilled pass catcher, so his fantasy upside could be enormous with enough of a workload. However, going back to his college days, Swift hasn't shown the ability to stay healthy as a workhorse back. He finishes his second season with 617 yards (4.1 YPC) and five touchdowns on the ground while catching 62 passes for 452 yards and two touchdowns on 78 targets (79.5 percent caught, 5.8 yards per target).

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Minimal activity

    Swift ran for 32 yards on four carries and caught two passes for seven yards on three targets against Seattle on Sunday.

    The Lions indicated that Swift was at full strength for this game, so his light usage behind Jamaal Williams (11 carries for 22 yards and one touchdown, three catches for 22 yards on three targets) was surprising if not dubious. Perhaps coach Dan Campbell wanted to limit Swift's exposure to contact in a meaningless game, or perhaps he was making a You Can't Make The Club In The Tub kind of point to Swift, who missed the prior four games with a shoulder injury, but Swift's fantasy investors are entitled to some level of indignation either way. Regardless of whatever reason Campbell might have had for Swift's lack of usage Sunday, it's safe to say that the Lions offense did not benefit from Swift's lack of touches. Detroit faces Green Bay in Week 18.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: No designation for Week 17

    Swift (shoulder) will make his return to the lineup Sunday in Seattle, as he doesn't carry an injury designation into the contest.

    Earlier in the season, the Lions regularly listed Swift as questionable heading into game days, even though he often appeared at little risk of actually sitting out. After missing each of the previous four games while recovering from an AC joint sprain in his shoulder, Swift's lack of a designation is somewhat surprising given the previous pattern, but it's perhaps a reflection of the Lions' confidence in his health following a month-long layoff. Swift was a full participant in practice all week, and running backs coach Duce Staley suggested Friday the Lions don't intend to take a conservative approach with him, according to Justin Rogers of The Detroit News. Fantasy managers who have been waiting patiently on Swift's return shouldn't count on him approaching the season-high 33 carries he earned Week 10 against Pittsburgh, but he looks like a good bet to at least get double-digit touches.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Expected back this week

    Swift (shoulder) is expected to play in Sunday's game in Seattle, with Lions head coach Dan Campbell joking that the running back will be "shut down" after Week 18, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Campbell is poking fun at reports that suggested Swift might be held out for the final couple of games even if he was healthy enough to play. Swift may still need to prove his health on the practice field this week, but the Lions apparently are optimistic after he managed limited participation in practices last Wednesday through Friday before he was inactive for Sunday's loss to Atlanta. His return for the final two weeks would mean less work for Jamaal Williams and Craig Reynolds, even if Swift's role isn't quite as large as it was earlier in the season.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Puts in full practice Wednesday

    Swift (shoulder) practiced fully Wednesday.

    Swift appears ready to end his four-game absence, the result of an AC joint sprain in his shoulder. Head coach Dan Campbell even hinted as much Wednesday, telling Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press that he expects Swift to return Sunday at Seattle. With a full practice under his belt to begin Week 17 prep, Swift is well on his way to doing just that. How the snaps and reps will break down between him, Jamaal Williams and even Craig Reynolds is more of a mystery, but in the 10 contests before getting hurt, Swift averaged 19 touches per game.
