  • D'Andre Swift Handles Nine Touches in Thanksgiving Loss

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift rushed five times for 19 yards and caught four of his eight targets for 24 yards in the 28-25 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He also rushed for a two-point conversion. It's frustrating to see another lackluster day for Swift, but eight targets could be a positive sign in PPR leagues moving forward. It's also worth noting he came within a few yards of a touchdown on at least three occasions. The Lions offense is here to stay as at least an above-average unit, so hopefully, Swift's best days are ahead as the fantasy football playoff approach.

  • D'Andre Swift Doesn't Carry An Injury Designation Against Bills

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (shoulder, ankle) doesn't carry an injury designation against the Buffalo Bills for the Thanksgiving game. He logged back-to-back full practices, and all systems go against the Bills. The 23-year-old rushed five times for 20 yards and a touchdown while catching all three of his targets for 12 yards in last Sunday's 31-18 win over the Giants. The Lions used a backfield committee between Swift, Jamaal Williams, and Justin Jackson in Week 12. Swift is an RB3/flex play against a Bills defense that ranks seventh in DVOA against the run.

  • D'Andre Swift Practices Fully Tuesday

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (shoulder, ankle) got in a full practice on Tuesday as his team gears up to face off against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday. Swift missed three games with his injuries earlier in the season and has been eased back to action over the past four games since returning, with only 18 carries over that span. The explosive running back also practiced fully on Monday's estimated practice report and should be without restrictions on Thursday, although the Lions seem content to roll out a three-man backfield committee with Jamaal Williams and Justin Jackson splitting the work with Swift. He should be startable in fantasy as a flex play/RB3 heading into Week 12.

  • D'Andre Swift A Risky Play Against Giants

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift has just 57 touches in six games this season, but he's finally consistently practicing, so perhaps his workload could see a jump moving forward. Ultimately, it's tough to project a big workload until it happens, but he might be worth the risk in Week 11. In standard leagues, he has essentially no floor, but his PPR upside is sky-high if he can start to earn more touches like fantasy managers expected coming into 2022. That said, he's benchable in standard leagues, but it's hard to bench him in PPR leagues unless managers have a ton of solid RB depth on their rosters. He should at least return to being the primary receiving back for Jared Goff.

  • D'Andre Swift, Jamaal Williams Fully Practice Thursday

    Detroit Lions running backs D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) and Jamaal Williams (illness) were full participants in Thursday's practice. Williams sat out Wednesday's practice with an illness but returned to log a full session Thursday. Swift fully practiced this week and is on track to play Sunday against the New York Giants. Williams continues to lead Detroit's backfield and has out-carried Swift 50-to-13 over the last three games. Both Detroit backs are considered flex plays against a Giants defense that ranks 23rd in rush DVOA this season.

  • Lions RB D'Andre Swift Frustrated With Usage

    Expectations were high for the Lions’ offense this season, in part due to the team’s investments at receiver but also the presence of running back D’Andre Swift. The 23-year-old has once again battled injuries this year, though, leading to a notable shortage of touches. Swift picked up an ankle injury early in the campaign, but a […]

  • D'Andre Swift Totals 12 Yards In Win

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift didn't carry an injury designation into Week 10, but he still only got seven touches and totaled just 12 yards. He scored a touchdown which saved his fantasy day just a bit, but it was another frustrating outing for Swift fantasy managers. He's an ultra-risky fantasy play moving forward since he hasn't gotten more than 10 touches since Week 1. Hopefully Dan Campbell with ramp him up as he continues to get healthy, but that's far from a guarantee based on what has transpired thus far.

  • D'Andre Swift Good To Go For Week 10

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) doesn't carry an injury designation into the Week 10 game against the Chicago Bears and was removed from Friday's final injury report. Swift has played in the last two games, but he's had just seven carries for 16 yards and has caught eight of nine targets for 67 yards and one touchdown in those games. He hasn't seen double-digit carries in a game since the season opener, although it appears he's heading into Sunday's game the healthiest he's been in a while. Whether that means more offensive snaps and touches over Jamaal Williams remains to be seen, though. Swift said he may not be 100 percent the rest of the year, and until he sees more of a role, he'll be a touchdown-dependent, low-end RB2 in fantasy.

  • D'Andre Swift Limited Thursday

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. The Lions continue to cap his practice reps as Swift manages lingering ankle and shoulder issues. The 23-year-old avoided any setbacks in Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers. "We're hopeful we can give him a little bit more this week," said head coach Dan Campbell. Swift is expected to play Week 10 against the Chicago Bears but carries some risk as Detroit continues to ease the former second-round pick back into action.
