  • 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.

    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.

    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.

  • D'Andre Swift Avoids Setbacks In Week 9

    Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell said that running back D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) didn't have any setbacks in the Week 9 win over the Green Bay Packers. "We're hopeful we can give him a little bit more this week," Campbell said. Swift returned in Week 8 for the first time since Week 3 and saw 55 percent of the offensive snaps while handling 10 touches (five carries, five receptions). In Sunday's win over Green Bay, he played a season-low 16 percent of the snaps and had five touches (two carries and three receptions). The 23-year-old clearly isn't 100 percent healthy and may not be again this year, but fantasy managers are certainly hoping that Swift will see more action alongside backfield mate Jamaal Williams heading into Week 10 against the Chicago Bears. Until something changes, Swift has become a touchdown-dependent RB3/flex in fantasy.

  • D'Andre Swift Posts 50 Yards On Five Touches

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift rushed twice for 10 yards and caught three passes for 40 yards in the win over the Green Bay Packers. The team said he'd have a limited workload since he's banged up with a shoulder injury, but he continues to be highly efficient and will be a significant fantasy factor if he can return to a normal workload. For now, he's a risky fantasy starter, but it's also tough to bench him as a part of one of the best offenses in the NFL. A matchup with the Chicago Bears in Week 10 could be his breakout game.

  • D'Andre Swift Expected Play In Week 9

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (shoulder, ankle) is expected to play against the Packers, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. The 23-year-old returned from a multi-game absence in Week 8 versus the Dolphins. However, he didn't receive much action, amassing only six yards off five touches. Fortunately, he caught all five of his targets for 27 yards and a touchdown, so fantasy managers at least got something out of him. Swift is likely to be limited again in Week 9, making him nothing more than a risky flex option in all formats.

  • D'Andre Swift, Brock Wright Questionable For Week 9

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) and tight end Brock Wright (concussion) are both questionable to play in Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers. Swift missed practice Wednesday but was limited the last two days, while Wright was able to return to a full practice Friday. The Lions plan to get Swift in there on Sunday, but they'll be cautious with him and will probably have him on a snap count, making him a low-end, touchdown-dependent RB2 while working behind Jamaal Williams. Swift said he may not be 100 percent healthy the rest of the year. Wright, meanwhile, looks to have a chance to be cleared to play against Green Bay, and with T.J. Hockenson in Minnesota, he'll have a clear path to TE1 duties in Detroit moving forward.

  • D'Andre Swift May Not Be 100 Percent Again This Year

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) has missed 25 percent of the team's games -- 10 of a possible 40 -- since entering the league in 2020. He rushed for 144 yards in the season opener but also sprained his ankle, and he's rushed for just 93 yards since while missing three games. Swift told reporters this week that he can't promise he'll be 100 percent healthy the rest of the year. The dynamic runner returned last week but saw just 10 touches, and head coach Dan Campbell thought even that might've been too much. The fact that he's not fully healthy yet after a month off is concerning for the Lions and fantasy managers. If Swift is active in Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers, he seems destined to surrender the majority of the backfield touches to Jamaal Williams yet again.

  • D'Andre Swift, Brock Wright At Practice Thursday

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) and tight end Brock Wright (concussion) were both seen at practice on Thursday, with Wright donning a red no-contact shirt. Neither Swift nor Wright practiced on Wednesday, so it's improvement heading into the Week 9 game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Swift returned from a three-game absence in Week 8 but didn't see all that much action and still isn't 100 percent healthy. If the 23-year-old plays this weekend, he's likely to share the workload with Jamaal Williams once again, making him a touchdown-dependent, low-end RB2. Wright will need to be cleared from the league's concussion protocol in order to play on Sunday, and if he does, he'll be the No. 1 pass-catching tight end with T.J. Hockenson now in Minnesota.

  • D'Andre Swift, Brock Wright Miss Practice Wednesday

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) and tight end Brock Wright (concussion) both missed practice on Wednesday. Swift returned in Week 8 for the first time since Week 3, but he admitted that he's not 100 percent healthy after carrying the ball five times for six yards and catching five passes for 27 yards and a touchdown in the loss to the Miami Dolphins. It's not a lock that he'll be active this Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, and if he is, he could once again yield valuable touches to backfield mate Jamaal Williams. With T.J. Hockenson now in Minnesota, Wright lines up as Detroit's No. 1 tight end, but he'll have to clear the concussion protocol in order to play this weekend. If he can't, rookie James Mitchell will be thrust into a starting role.

  • D'Andre Swift Not 100 Percent Healthy

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) returned to action in a Week 8 loss to the Miami Dolphins for the first time since Week 3, but he's still not 100 percent. Head coach Dan Campbell openly regretted how much work the team gave Swift in his return last Sunday. "We probably gave Swift one too many carries. We love Swift. Glad he's out there. But he's not back," Campbell said. Swift had a team-high 33 snaps at the position, but he had just five carries for six yards and caught all five targets for 27 yards and a touchdown. He said his role will grow as he gets healthier, but it's becoming hard to trust him in this backfield with Jamaal Williams also involved. Until the 23-year-old RB gets back to full health and receivers more of a full workload, he'll be more of a touchdown-dependent, low-end RB2 for fantasy managers.

  • D'Andre Swift Catches Touchdown In Return

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift handled five rushes and five receptions for a total of 33 yards and a touchdown in the loss to the Miami Dolphins. It was predictable that he'd have a limited workload in his first game back from his shoulder injury since Week 3, but he delivered in PPR leagues thanks to his receiving work and touchdown. He's back as a great RB2 play, especially if his workload increases as he gets more and more up to speed. Jamaal Williams is still the goal line back as he scored two touchdowns, but Swift has a high PPR ceiling.

  • D'Andre Swift Off The Injury Report

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) has been taken off the injury report on Friday and is expected to play in Week 8 against the Miami Dolphins. Swift will make his return to the field for the first time since Week 3 after practicing in full this week. However, given the long layoff, fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised to see him share a considerable amount of the backfield workload with teammate Jamaal Williams. Even before his injuries, Swift was sharing the backfield with Williams in the first three weeks of the season. Swift only had 27 carries in his three games, but he averaged 8.6 yards per tote for 231 yards and a touchdown, adding eight catches on 12 targets for 77 yards and another score. The 23-year-old will likely need to stay highly efficient to reward fantasy managers as an RB2 this weekend in his return.

  • D'Andre Swift Puts In Another Full Practice

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) had his second straight day of full practice on Thursday. Swift has been sidelined since Week 3, but two straight days of practice so far this week bode well for his chances of returning to action in Week 8 against the Miami Dolphins. It remains to be seen how many offensive snaps the 23-year-old will be on the field for after a long layoff, but Swift should at least share the backfield touches with Jamaal Williams like he was doing in the three games to start the year before his injuries. Swift is averaging a healthy 8.6 yards per carry on 27 carries in 2022, but he'll be a low-end RB2 in danger of losing valuable touches to Williams if he returns against Miami.

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) was listed as a full participant in practice on Wednesday. Swift was limited all of last week before missing his third straight contest, but a full practice in the first practice this week makes it seem like the 23-year-old has a very realistic chance to play against the Miami Dolphins in Week 8. There's a good chance the team could ease him back into the fold alongside backfield-mate Jamaal Williams, though, which would make Swift a shaky RB2 play for fantasy managers. Swift hasn't seen a ton of volume in his three games played, but he's made up for it with efficiency, averaging 8.6 yards per carry while scoring two times (one rushing, one receiving).

  • D'Andre Swift Back At Practice

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) returned to practice on Wednesday after missing his third straight game in the Week 7 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The 23-year-old had three limited practices last week, but the team decided to err on the side of caution and hold him out. He could need to put in a full practice at some point this week to get the green light. Once Swift is back, it's unlikely that he'll dominate backfield touches and will likely split carries with Jamaal Williams, making him more of a low-end RB2 for fantasy managers in his first game back. The Lions are taking on the Miami Dolphins at home this Sunday. So far in 2022, Swift has been a massive disappointment in fantasy.

Swift had the bye week to rest up and was limited all week in practice, but the Lions will choose to hold him out for another week. He hasn't played since Week 3, but there's a good chance he'll return to action in Week 8 against the Miami Dolphins. With the 23-year-old out yet again, Jamaal Williams should lead this backfield on Sunday, making him a plug-and-play RB2 choice for fantasy managers. Craig Reynolds and Justin Jackson will be looking for scraps in a change-of-pace role behind him. Make sure to remove Swift from your starting fantasy lineups before the early games kick off.

Swift said earlier this week that he was pushing towards returning for the first time since Week 3, and if he does, he'll likely split touches with backfield mate Jamaal Williams, making him a risk/reward RB2 play for fantasy managers on Sunday. If Swift misses his third straight contest, Williams will be a plug-and-play RB2. DJ Chark (ankle) is out, so if Reynolds is also sidelined, Kalif Raymond and Tom Kennedy would be the No. 2 and 3 receivers behind Amon-Ra St. Brown. Fantasy managers will want to check back Sunday morning to see if both Swift and Reynolds are active.

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) was limited in practice on Thursday for the second straight day this week. Swift hasn't played since Week 3, but he has a shot to return in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, as long as he doesn't suffer a setback on Friday or Saturday. The 23-year-old could be questionable this weekend, but he is pushing to play against Detroit, where he could be limited to sharing more of the backfield pie with Jamaal Williams in his first game back. Swift has capitalized on his opportunities this year to the tune of 27 carries for 231 yards and a touchdown while also catching eight of 12 targets for 77 yards and another score in three games played. Consider him a low-end RB2 coming off injury if he plays this weekend.

The 23-year-old has battled an ankle injury in addition to his shoulder, but he could be back this Sunday as Detroit's primary running back alongside Jamaal Williams. He hasn't seen the kind of volume his fantasy managers were hoping for in his first three games of 2022, but he's been productive nevertheless with 27 carries for 231 yards (8.6 yards per carry) and a touchdown while adding eight catches on 12 targets for 77 yards and another TD.

Swift has been banged up with shoulder and ankle issues and hasn't played since Week 3, but the plan was always for him to try and return after the Week 6 bye for a Week 7 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. The fact that Swift is going to practice early in the week is a good sign that he'll be back this Sunday, but he could also be limited, which would make him a shaky fantasy option in his first game. In three contests this year, Swift has 27 carries for 231 yards and a touchdown while catching eight of 12 targets for 77 yards and another score.

This doesn't come as a surprise since head Coach Dan Campbell said he might be out until after the Lions' Week 6 bye. That said, Swift fantasy managers will have to make do without Swift until at least Week 7. Jamaal Williams will continue to be at least a high-end RB2 while Swift remains out.

The plan is still for Swift to return after the team's Week 7 bye, barring an unforeseen development. The Lions will likely officially rule Swift out on Friday, but fantasy managers should already have the 23-year-old on their benches for this weekend. With Swift out last Sunday, Jamaal Williams had 19 carries for 108 yards and two touchdowns despite playing only 49 percent of the offensive snaps. With Swift set to miss a second straight game, Williams will have RB1 upside as a strong RB2 play for fantasy managers.

It's important to note that head coach Dan Campbell stated that many veterans would get rest today, but Detroit could certainly exercise caution with their young star this weekend and allow him to get healthy with a Week 6 bye approaching.

After being limited to just 17 touches over the past two weeks, it is more than likely that Swift misses a couple of games leading up to the team's Week 7 BYE to ensure he can get back to being 100 percent healthy. Fantasy managers should check back in for his Friday status, but right now it seems that anyone rostering Swift should have a backup plan.

It would mean that Swift would miss the next two games against the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots.

It remains to be seen if Swift will be available in Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks, but if he isn't, Williams will be a must-start in fantasy in a Lions offense that has been surprisingly potent through three weeks.

  • D'Andre Swift Remains A Must-Start

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle) is questionable for Week 3, but he's still a must-start option in fantasy football if he's out there on game day. His Week 2 touches were limited thanks to a sprained ankle, but he could be somewhat healthier and ready for more of a workload this week. Since the Lions got off to an early lead against the Commanders, Swift was likely just being managed. Even if his touches are managed again, he's worth playing since he scored 16 fantasy points on just seven touches last week. The Vikings have allowed big rushing days to AJ Dillon and several Eagles' rushers, so the matchup isn't problematic, either. In PPR leagues, his ceiling is the overall RB1. Start him with confidence if he suits up.

  • D'Andre Swift Returns To Practice Thursday

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle) returned to practice on Thursday after being held out of Wednesday's session as a precaution. Swift tweaked his ankle in Week 1 and was questionable heading into last week's win over the Washington Commanders. He played but was in on just 51 percent of the offensive snaps and touched the ball only seven times. Swift was still able to help fantasy managers out by being productive with his limited touches and finding the end zone. The 23-year-old is feeling much better this week and should see more time on the field this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Barring a setback, Swift will be a must-start, low-end RB1 in Week 3 in a Lions offense that has looked explosive through two weeks.

  • D'Andre Swift Feeling Much Better

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle) is feeling much better than he did last week, but head coach Dan Campbell gave Swift the day off practice on Wednesday anyway. Swift was listed as questionable last week with an ankle injury that he picked up in the season opener, but he played in the Week 2 win over the Washington Commanders and had seven touches for 87 all-purpose yards and a receiving touchdown on 51 percent of the offensive snaps. The 23-year-old wasn't as involved as he was in Week 1, but he still managed to reward his fantasy managers with a trip to the end zone. If he's feeling better this weekend, we should see his percentage of the snaps go up in a Week 3 tilt against the Minnesota Vikings.

  • D'Andre Swift Delivers On Small Workload

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift only handled seven touches in the win against the Washington Commanders. However, he racked up 87 yards and secured a receiving touchdown. There was a known risk going into this game since Swift is dealing with an ankle injury, but he still delivered for fantasy managers. It's important to keep up with the latest injury updates regarding Swift's status, but he's clearly a must-start option if active in any matchup. If he's healthy against Minnesota next week, he should see his usual double-digit touches workload.

  • D'Andre Swift Officially Active For Week 2

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle) is officially active for Week 2 against the Washington Commanders despite being listed as questionable. Although he may have a limited snap count on Sunday, Swift still falls in the high-end RB2 range thanks to his talent in both the running and passing attack. Backfield-mate Jamaal Williams should see an increase in snaps, elevating him to the low-end RB3 tier.

  • D'Andre Swift Should Play Sunday, Might Be Limited

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle) is expected to play on Sunday despite being listed as questionable. However, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network tweets that "the team may have to be selective about his usage." As a result, his 67 percent snap share from Week 1 could decrease further in Week 2. He still falls in the high-end RB2 range and is worth starting in all fantasy football leagues, but fantasy managers should temper their expectations about his production. Meanwhile, Jamaal Williams should see an increase in snaps, elevating him to the low-end RB3 tier.

  • D'Andre Swift Listed As Questionable For Week 2

    Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell said that running back D'Andre Swift (ankle) is questionable for Week 2 against the Washington Commanders. Campbell also said that Swift will practice "a little bit" on Friday after he sat out on Wednesday and Thursday. Swift rolled his ankle in the Week 1 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but he's insisted all week that he's perfectly fine and will play this weekend. The 23-year-old had 175 all-purposes yards in the season opener, but it's possible he could lose more touches to backup Jamaal Williams in Week 2. As long as Swift is active on Sunday, he should be a must-start for fantasy managers as a top-10 RB.

  • D'Andre Swift A Top RB Play If Active

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift is apparently dealing with an ankle injury, but all indications are it's not a worrisome or major ailment. He reportedly rolled his ankle in the loss to the Eagles, so there's a solid chance he could be good to go for Week 2 against the Washington Commanders. Washington gave up an RB1 performance to James Robinson last week, and Travis Etienne dropped a receiving touchdown early in the contest. Week 1 statistics shouldn't be taken into consideration too much, but for now, it looks like there will be opportunities for running backs against Washington. Swift is a must-start in all formats if he's active, no matter the matchup.

  • D'Andre Swift Expected To Play In Week 2

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle) is expected to play in Week 2 against the Washington Commanders despite dealing with an ankle injury that has kept him sidelined at practice on both Wednesday and Thursday this week. A league source emphasized Swift is "good to go." "He's going to be ready," the source predicted. "He's good." Swift himself didn't sound particularly worried about his injury either. The 23-year-old handled 15 carries for 144 yards and a touchdown and also caught all three of his targets for 31 yards in the Week 1 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Expect Swift to return to practice on Friday. If active this Sunday, Swift will be a must-start in fantasy, but Jamaal Williams' heavy involvement in the season opener was a bit concerning.

  • D'Andre Swift Not Worried About His Injury

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle) said he rolled his ankle in the second quarter of the Week 1 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but he stayed in the game and finished with 15 carries for a career-high 144 yards, which was the third-highest rushing total in the league in the first week. The 23-year-old wasn't on the practice field on Wednesday, but he still has two days left in the week to get back on the field. As long as Swift is active, he should be considered a must-start RB1 in a Week 2 matchup against the Washington Commanders. If Swift is wrong about his injury being minor and he doesn't suit up, Jamaal Williams would be an immediate plug-and-play RB2 choice for fantasy managers.

  • D'Andre Swift Misses Practice With Ankle Injury

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday due to an ankle injury. It remains to be seen if this is a serious enough injury to keep Swift from playing in Week 2 against the Washington Commanders. If you have Swift rostered, it's time to immediately run to the waiver wire and grab his backup, Jamaal Williams, if he's available in your league. We'll have to monitor Swift's status the rest of the week to determine if there's a realistic chance that he might sit this Sunday. If he's inactive, Williams would immediately become a plug-and-play RB2 for fantasy managers. Even while sharing the backfield with Swift in the Week 1 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, Williams had 11 carries for 28 yards and two touchdowns while playing 33% of the snaps.

  • D'Andre Swift A Must-Start In Season Opener

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift has been a hot name in fantasy football during the offseason and is poised for a breakout year as a top pass-catching back. The Eagles' front-seven looks strong on paper, but Swift should be viewed as an automatic starter in PPR leagues, regardless of matchup. Swift saw an 18.4-percent target share last season and grabbed 4.8 receptions per game. Detroit added weapons to its offense, but Swift should continue to be Jared Goff's security blanket on an offense that could see its pass rate go up. In standard leagues, he's not as much of a sure thing, but his upside still makes him a strong option in all formats.
