Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
 6/29 Update: Likely facing a 6+ game suspension -- Mark Ingram is a VERY cheap (re:Free) handcuff so you can "own the backfield," but missing over 1/3 of the season makes Kamara a risky bet in the first 2 rounds now, even with his stretch run ceiling. No Sean Payton, but Kamara benefits greatly from Jameis returning. He was the RB4 in PPR PPG (19.98) w/ Winston @ QB & this was in an atrocious attack. With MT & Olave now in town, this could be a monstrous rebound for AK41.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Top 10 RB in PPR FPPG over his 2 seasons, and now poised for biggest workload in DET offense with arrows pointing upWas Top 5 among RBs in PPR FPPG in 1st season sans Drew Brees, so the only question is availability, be it suspension or injury (7 DNPs in past 3 seasons)
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
D'Andre Swift was RB9 in points per game (half-point scoring) in 10 games played before his injury. He led all running backs in receptions (53) and averaged nearly 19 touches per game. That would have ranked 9th-best last season. 
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
In Weeks 1-11, before suffering an AC joint sprain that kiboshed his season, D'Andre Swift was a fantasy monster. He was the RB7, averaging 19 touches and 97.5 total yards per game. While the Lions have added more passing game weapons in the offseason with D.J. Chark and Jameson Williams, Swift's efficiency through the air allows for hope that his target share (18.4%, second among running backs) won't see a drastic dip. In Weeks 1-11, he was ninth in yards per route run (minimum 15 targets, per PFF) among running backs.Last year Alvin Kamara showed no signs of slowing down, logging his first 200-plus carry season. In the six full games with Jameis Winston under center, he was the RB5 in fantasy, averaging 23.2 touches and 5.5 targets (26.4% target share). Over that span, he was seventh in targets and sixth in receiving yards among all running backs. Kamara is a top 5-10 option at the running back position.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 Only this low in my rankings with a potential suspension looming.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The talent is there, Swift had 1,023 yards from scrimmage and 6 touchdowns in the fantasy season in 2021. The question is durability and whether the Lions can improve one of the worst rosters in the NFL.Kamara struggled with injuries and ineffective quarterback play in 2021 and still finished the fantasy season with 1,175 yards from scrimmage and 9 touchdowns. He should be back as a RB1, although Kamara was arrested in Las Vegas in February and charged with battery resulting in substantial bodily harm. That could lead to a suspension, which would impact his fantasy stock.
