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 upNotched 18 TDs in 15 games in 2021 and, while regression expectations are fair, that could be mostly offset by a volume increase with Chase Edmonds gone
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.The Cardinals re-signed their RB1 from a season ago to a three-year, $21 million extension this offseason, locking him in as their guy for the foreseeable future. It's a great signing for fantasy football because it puts Conner firmly in the top-12 running back conversation, especially with Chase Edmonds landing in Miami. The ex-Steelers running back finished the 2021 season tied for second in goal-line carries and third in touchdowns (18). Conner received extensive work in the passing game with Edmonds out of the lineup from Weeks 9-14 and Week 18. Conner averaged 26.2 fantasy points and 5.5 targets per game in those six games while running a route on 61% of the Cardinals' dropbacks. His RB finishes in half-point scoring during those weeks: RB1, RB16, RB8, RB11, RB2, and RB3.
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.James Conner will be the Cardinal's dependable workhorse again in 2022. In Weeks 9-14, he never played less than 77% of the snaps averaging 21.8 touches and 114.4 total yards per game. He was the RB2 in fantasy behind only Jonathan Taylor in that five-game span. His 18 total touchdowns seem hard to replicate at first glance, but it isn't. Last season Arizona was eighth in red zone rushing rate. Conner has minimal competition on the depth chart that could take him off the field on passing downs or near paydirt.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
 Best-case scenario was landing back in Arizona, where Conner was the RB8 in 2021... and now without Chase Edmonds. No meaningful rookie competition added. Perfection.
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.Conner was able to stay healthy platooning with Chase Edmonds and Conner finished the fantasy season with 1,034 yards from scrimmage and 16 touchdowns. Conner is unlikely to duplicate that TD production in 2022, but if he stays in Arizona, he should be a RB2 with upside.
