Based on pure talent, Swift already belongs in the top-12 RB conversation in the NFL. Unfortunately, it's hard to have faith that Swift will finish in that range this year for fantasy purposes. While he could see plenty of targets in the passing game, the scoring opportunities on this bad Detroit Lions team probably aren't going to be very plentiful. Additionally, he now has Jamaal Williams in this backfield to compete for touches with and Anthony Lynn has been vocal about his love for utilizing a committee approach. Swift is going to be a safe RB2 for your roster this season because of the floor he'll bring you week in and week out. However, due to the offense he's in, there's virtually no upside. Think about it this way...would you have been as excited about Swift last season if he were on the New York Jets or Jacksonville Jaguars and in a near 50/50 time share? That could be the exact situation we're looking at this season in Detroit. My Very Early Projection: 206-843-5 rushing & 54-428-1 receiving.Williams is a bowling ball of a prospect that landed in a great situation here in Denver. He's a part of a dynamic offense with plenty of other weapons to take attention away from him and he should be one of the focal points of this offense sooner than later. Unfortunately, his fantasy outlook might be hampered a bit to begin his rookie season with Gordon's presence on this depth chart. In 2021, I fully expect to see a well-balanced rotation between these two RBs, which is going to effectively kill any potential that either one has this season. If something were to happen to Gordon though, Williams would immediately shoot up into top-15 territory with his talent and the opportunity in this offense. If you end up snagging Gordon in your fantasy drafts this season, it's probably a wise investment to double down and snag Williams as well in the event that one of them completely takes over this backfield at some point.

DET likely to be among worst NFL offenses and Jamaal Williams getting lots of lip service love from OC Lynn - still, there's 70-catch upside if he can soon put groin issue in past

INJURY UPDATE- Swift has missed a lot of practice time after injuring his groin. Monitor this situation closely as August progresses. As soon as we hear anything we will let you know. Stay tuned........ Swift is a really talented RB, but he isn't big enough to be a three down RB. He'll wear down. The Lions under a new GM signed RB Jamaal Williams from Green Bay in free agency. He'll probably see the goal line work. He's a better power runner. There's also rumors that Detroit is interested in Todd Gurley. Some members of the Lions front office came over from L.A. when Gurley was playing for the Rams. This management has no ties to Swift. Detroit's offense isn't that great anyway. This is one of those where I like the player, but hate the situation type of deals. Why some analysts are taking DeAndre Swift so early (3rd round) is beyond me. They might as well take Taylor Swift instead. At that price point, I think DeAndre Swift is a bust in 2021. AvoidNew GM George Paton didn't sit around on draft day. He traded up in the 2nd round to get his guy, RB Javonte Williams. Williams has the potential to be a 3 down RB if given the chance. Right now it's a RBBC with Melvin Gordon. Williams reminds me of Frank Gore in his younger days. His ability to consistently break tackles is impressive. He can also catch the ball out of the backfield. It sounds like the Broncos want to run it more in 2021. And if anything happens to Gordon or if Aaron Rodgers comes to town, things suddenly will get very interesting here.

Last season, as a rookie, D'Andre had 57 targets in 13 games. He was on pace for 70 targets. Through off-season departures and additions, the Lions have 362 targets available. @RobFFAddict If you don't think D'Andre Swift is a great value at the end of the 3rd round... I assure you, life as a fantasy "analyst" is not in your future. 75 target FLOOR - @JLarkytweets Seeing people who aren't injury experts still making late comments about D'Andre Swift's injury when he's been making great plays in practice this week is interesting. It has influenced several people, based on drafts and Twitter. According to @PFF_Fantasy, D'Andre Swift has the third-hardest schedule among running backs. Insane talent, pass-catching upside, heavy usage, terrible team, negative game-scripts, tough schedule, new QB/coach.Gordon will most likely dominate the receptions, two-minute offense, and goaline touches at RB for the first half of the season. When Gordon starts to break-down Javonte Williams should seamlessly start to take-over. There's potential for Williams to be a league winner, but his ADP is climbing too high when he's being drafted in the 6th round.

Swift finished as RB18 in his first season thanks to 46 receptions and 10 total scores. Though he amassed only 160 total touches, Swift posted almost 1,000 yards in just 13 games. Jamaal Williams isn't a legitimate threat to take a ton of work from Swift, but he may be a caterpillar in the buttermilk in Swift's path to an RB1 season. Consider the second-year Lion a mid-range RB2.

There were certainly flashes of what could be a great three-down back with Swift last year, but the Lions seem to have alternate plans. They snagged Jamaal Williams in free agency and signed him to a two-year deal. Then, they drafted Jermar Jefferson. Then, they brought in Todd Gurley on a free agent visit. While they didn't sign him, it's not promising for Swift's outlook, as they clearly want this to be somewhat of a timeshare. It's not to say timeshare backs can't get into the top-12 conversation - they can, but it requires a lot of scoring opportunities, something we're not expecting from the Lions offense. Swift is an extremely talented football player, but situation and opportunity knock him into clear-cut RB2 territory. That's especially true with him being "iffy" for Week 1 because he was so delayed in getting his conditioning up to speed due to his groin injury.There are many trying to appoint Williams as the top back in the Broncos offense, but don't go there just yet. Melvin Gordon has one year left on his deal, and it's the same coaching staff that brought him in on a two-year deal worth $16 million. It's likely they continue using Gordon in a timeshare with Williams in the Phillip Lindsay role, which netted 8-16 touches when Gordon was in the lineup. That does give him flex appeal, and if anything were to happen to Gordon, Williams could be a league winner. Treat him as a high-end handcuff, and anything else he gives you is a bonus.

Improved line, huge target upside, run-it-all-out coach. Love this offseason for Swift -- except Anthony Lynn calling Jamaal WIlliams the "A Back?" And then Swift missing so much time w/ a groin injury. Upside remains sky-highWill likely begin the year behind MGIII, but make no mistake: the team traded UP for him, and Shurmur prefers his workhorses.... or so he used to. Williams remains locked in a 55ish% split with Royce Freakin' Freeman so far this preseason

It wasn't a bad rookie season by any means for Swift, as he finished as the 18th-ranked running back in half-PPR formats and did strong work as a receiver, totaling an impressive 1.58 yards per route run. New offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn made some waves with his comments about Jamaal Williams essentially playing as the primary back, but, even if true, we've seen backs in Lynn's system succeed as complementary pass-catching options. There are also plenty of vacated targets in Detroit and Jared Goff is sure to look for Swift as his safety net. Add it all up and Swift is a decent RB2 in half-PPR formats, but one with a fairly hard cap on his upside.

Swift averaged a healthy 12.8 fantasy points in 13 games last year and he figures to see more work as the featured back in Detroit. He should be an upside RB1 in 2021 behind one of the more underrated offensive lines in the league.

The Lions have one of the best and deepest offensive lines in football coming into 2021, which is great news for Swift. Even better news is that he is on a team that just acquired a QB that loves to throw to the RB (Goff) in an offense that lacks outside weapons. Swift could easily see upwards of 100 targets for the Lions this season, even with Jammal Williams also getting touches. New OC Anthony Lynn has produced two RB2's or better multiple times in his time with the Chargers, and with almost nowhere else to go to on offense, the offense will run through Swift and Williams.
