  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Records rushing TD in win

    Swift rushed 14 times for 62 yards and a touchdown and brought in four of six targets for 49 yards in the Lions' 40-14 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. Swift handled his heaviest workload on the ground since Week 1 and found the end zone for the third time in the last four games in his best all-around game of the season. The third-year back's rushing yardage tally was also his second highest of the campaign, while his receiving yardage was a new high-water mark in 2022. The fact Swift outpaced backfield mate Jamaal Williams by three carries could be harbinger of what the stretch run may hold now that the former is possibly finally back to full health, but more insight should be gleaned from the division of labor in a Week 14 divisional home showdown against the Vikings.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Sleeper RBs

    Jamaal Williams remains the best Fantasy running back for the Lions because of his touchdown potential, but I don't mind Swift as a flex option against the Jaguars. He wasn't listed on the injury report, and hopefully he starts to get more work. Swift hasn't got more than 10 total touches in his past five games, but now that he's fully healthy we hope to see his role grow. He does have three touchdowns in his past five outings, and he also got eight targets last week against Buffalo. In what should be a high-scoring game, Swift might surprise us with a big performance against Jacksonville at home.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Sit Him (Lineup Decisions)

    Running backs who don't see a lot of work must be hyper-efficient in order to warrant Fantasy consideration, and Swift simply isn't close to that. He is at best a bye-week replacement running back until we can believe in his workload increasing. I'd rather start Gus Edwards, Latavius Murray or Kareem Hunt.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Totals 43 yards

    Swift rushed five times for 19 yards with a two-point conversion while catching four of eight targets for 24 yards during Thursday's 28-25 loss to the Bills. Jamaal Williams continues to get the bulk of the rushing workload, but he also hasn't seen a target in the passing game since Week 8. Meanwhile, Swift has seen at least three targets in every game this year while logging a modest uptick in snaps (32 percent on Thursday) for the fourth consecutive contest. While fantasy managers would still like to see more after he opened the season seeing two-thirds of the offensive snaps, Swift is at least getting some goal-line carries -- including a potential touchdown that was called back Thursday -- and it is possible that Swift's snap share could continue to trend upward the further he distances himself from his shoulder and ankle injuries. His receiving chops could be highly utilized in Week 13 against a Jaguars defense that has been better against the run than the pass this year.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: RBs to Sit

    Swift has been saved by touchdowns of late, but he's still not getting enough work to warrant using him as anything more than a flex option in the majority of leagues. He's been at 10 touches or less in four games in a row, and he's been held to 33 yards or less in three of those outings. The good news is he's scored three touchdowns over that span, but that's hard to rely on. Jamaal Williams remains the lead running back for the Lions, and he should be considered a low-end starter in all leagues. But it's not an easy matchup against the Bills, who just held Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt to a combined 15 PPR points in Week 11.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Another low-usage game with a TD

    Swift rushed five times for 20 yards and a touchdown while corralling all three of his targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 31-18 win over the Giants. Swift avoided practice limitations for a second week in a row, but he still was limited to single-digit touches. Jamaal Williams (17-64-3) and Justin Jackson (9-66-0) both saw more usage and production than the oft-injured back. Swift was able to maintain fantasy usefulness with a late score from in close once the game was well in hand. Fantasy managers should be concerned about the lack of touches for the 2020 second-round pick, but he continues to stay afloat with touchdowns in consecutive weeks. Expect Swift to continue to be used as part of a crowded backfield committee against the Bills on Thanksgiving.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: RBs to Sit

    Swift's workload has been troubling for the past three games after coming back from a three-game absence due to shoulder and ankle injuries. He's been at 10 total touches or less, and last week at Chicago he had six carries for 6 yards and a touchdown, along with one catch for 6 yards on three targets. Jamaal Williams will continue to lead Detroit in carries, and Williams is worth using as a No. 2 running back in all leagues. The Giants are No. 3 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs and No. 1 in fewest receptions allowed to the position, which could make it hard for Swift to make plays in the passing game. He's a flex at best in this matchup.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Finds end zone against Bears

    Swift carried the ball six times for six yards and a touchdown and caught one of three targets for six yards in Sunday's 31-30 win over the Bears. For the third straight game, Swift failed to top 10 rushing yards, but he salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective with a nine-yard TD run early in the fourth quarter -- his first score on the ground since Week 1. His poor recent performances suggest he's still playing through some sort of injury, making Swift a risky option in Week 11 against the Giants.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Cleared from injury report

    Swift (ankle/shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Chicago, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Swift will play a third straight game and should get more playing time after taking only 10 snaps (16 percent) in last week's 15-9 win over the Packers. Head coach Dan Campbell said Monday that the Lions hoped to give Swift "a little bit more" work this Sunday, while Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports that the running back was frustrated by his lack of playing time last week. Swift was a full practice participant Friday for the first time since Week 1, after being limited Wednesday and Thursday. He'll suit up Sunday against a struggling Bears defense that's been thinned out by trades, though Swift will likely be splitting work with Jamaal Williams in a backfield that recently lost Craig Reynolds (ribs) to injured reserve.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Another limited practice

    Swift (ankle/shoulder) practiced on a limited basis Thursday. Swift continues to operate with a cap on his practice reps due to lingering ankle and shoulder injuries. He'll have one more opportunity Friday to get back to all activity, at which point the Lions may give him a designation ahead of Sunday's game at Chicago. On Monday, coach Dan Quinn relayed to Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com that the Lions hope to give Swift "a little bit more" work in Week 10. Whether or not Swift will increase his snap share (16 percent) and touch count (five) from this past Sunday versus the Packers remains to be seen, but Jamaal Williams and Justin Jackson are available to Detroit's backfield as long as Swift isn't 100 percent.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Remains limited at practice

    Swift (ankle/shoulder) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday. After missing three games due to ankle and shoulder injuries, Swift returned to action Week 8 against the Dolphins, earning a 52 percent snap share and 10 touches in the process. He proceeded to have practice limitations last week before being active this past Sunday against the Packers, but he fell all the way back to 16 percent of the plays and just five touches. Head coach Dan Campbell told Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com on Monday that Swift didn't incur any setbacks in that game, and added that he hopes the team "can give him a little bit more this week." Swift may have to get back to a full session Thursday and/or Friday to have any chance at a normal workload Sunday in Chicago, but Jamaal Williams and Justin Jackson are on hand in the event the former's snap count again is capped this weekend.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: No setbacks

    Head coach Dan Campbell indicated Monday that Swift did not suffer any setbacks during Sunday's victory over the Packers, Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com reports. "We're hopeful we can give him a little bit more this week," Campbell said. After logging over half of the offensive snaps in his return from shoulder and ankle injuries in Week 8 against Miami, Swift logged just 16 percent Week 9 against Green Bay. While it isn't clear why the star running back would see less work if injuries weren't at play, the fact that Swift saw less action than Justin Jackson (21 percent) certainly makes Campbell's comments seem suspicious. Wednesday's initial injury report may provide further clarity to Swift's availability for a Week 10 matchup against the Bears.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Produces in limited action

    Swift (ankle/shoulder) rushed twice for 10 yards and caught three of four targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 15-9 win over the Packers. Swift's role and usage were limited for the second consecutive week due to multiple nagging injuries. Jamaal Williams (24/81/0) handled the majority of the early-down work Sunday, with both backs producing modest fantasy lines in their respective roles. Swift is the back with the higher upside, but injuries have derailed a promising start to his 2022 campaign. The 23-year-old's managers are hoping that he can inch closer to handling a starter's workload after being eased back into action over Detroit's last two contests. Swift's next chance to accomplish that task will come against a struggling Bears defense next Sunday.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Suiting up in Week 9

    Swift (ankle/shoulder) is listed as active Sunday against the Packers. While Swift is healthy enough to play, the Lions are taking a cautious approach with their No. 1 running back as he continues to tend to ankle and shoulder issues. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Swift likely will handle a role similar to his Week 8 workload, when he played 52 percent of the offensive snaps and notched 10 touches for 33 yards from scrimmage and a receiving TD. As a result, Jamaal Williams, who tallied 76 total yards and two rushing scores last Sunday versus the Dolphins, again may be on the better end of Detroit's backfield breakdown for fantasy purposes Week 9.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Likely to play in limited fashion

    Swift (ankle), officially listed as questionable, is expected to play in a limited capacity Sunday against the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Swift managed limited practices on both Thursday and Friday, which suggests that he is healthy enough to play. However, the Lions has been conservative with their approach to playing Swift, as he was limited to only 52 percent of Detroit's offensive snaps and five carries in its Week 8 loss to the Dolphins. He could in line for a similar -- or even lesser -- role in Week 9, but it appears unlikely that he will serve as anything close to a workhorse back.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Questionable, on track to play

    Swift (ankle/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Swift managed limited practices Thursday and Friday after being held out Wednesday, with coach Dan Campbell saying Friday morning that "the plan is to get [Swift] in the game and see where he's at," per Colton Pouncy of The Athletic. That's not exactly what fantasy managers want to hear, as it leaves the door wide open for a restricted workload or in-game setback. Swift said earlier this week that he wasn't 100 percent healthy in his return to action last Sunday against the Dolphins, though he did score a touchdown to salvage the day from a fantasy standpoint (with only 33 total yards on 10 touches). Jamaal Williams and Craig Reynolds will get more work if Swift runs into any issues before/after the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff this Sunday.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Back at practice

    Swift (ankle/shoulder) was spotted during the open portion of practice Thursday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Swift didn't practice Wednesday, so his return to the field Thursday, in any capacity, bodes well for his chances of being available for Sunday's game against the Packers. The Lions' upcoming injury report is slated to reveal the running back's official participation level.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Still not 100 percent

    Swift (ankle/shoulder) said Monday that he's still not 100 percent, but he anticipates having a larger role moving forward, Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com reports. Swift totaled 18 touches for 175 yards and a touchdown during the season opener but has been limited during his three appearances since. He sat out for a month (three games plus Detroit's Week 6 bye) and returned to action against Miami in Week 8, totaling 10 touches for 33 yards and a score. His much-anticipated return left fantasy managers wanting more, but it's encouraging to see the talented running back make it through the contest without suffering a setback. Despite admitting he's not 100 percent and saying the injuries still are impacting him "a little bit," Swift expressed confidence that his role will continue to grow as he puts the lingering injuries behind him.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Receiving TD in return

    Swift (ankle/shoulder) rushed five times for six yards and secured all five targets for 27 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' 31-27 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. Swift had a minimal role on the ground as his line clearly indicates, but he did partly make up for it with a solid performance through the air that included a seven-yard touchdown grab in the first quarter. The third-year back was at least able to make it through the game without any aggravation of either of his previously nagging injuries, and his catch total was a season high. Swift will hope for more work on the ground when the Lions face off with the Packers in a divisional clash at home in Week 9.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Logs full practice Wednesday

    Swift (ankle/shoulder) was a full practice participant Wednesday. Swift wasn't cleared to play in last Sunday's loss to the Cowboys after putting in three consecutive limited sessions following a bye week, but with a full practice already under his belt, he appears poised to make his first appearance since Week 3 this Sunday against the Dolphins. In three contests this season, he averaged a whopping 8.6 yards per carry on his 27 rushes and also hauled in eight of 12 targets for 77 yards, so he's a must-start player in his return to the lineup.
