Some are automatically assuming that Swift will get 20 touches per game in the Lions offense, though I'm not part of that group. Kerryon Johnson has been solid for the Lions when on the field, though he's had issues staying on the field, and the Lions are tired of bringing in guys like LeGarrette Blount, C.J. Anderson, and Bo Scarbrough. So, they'll likely work both running backs to keep them healthy and fresh. I do believe Swift is the better back, hence the higher ranking, but expecting more than 12-14 touches per game out of the gate would be a mistake.Did everyone forget what happened when Alvin Kamara had to miss time last year? It was only two weeks, but in those two games, Murray destroyed the Bears and Cardinals to the tune of 307 total yards and four total touchdowns. He's legitimately a league-winner if Kamara misses time. This is what handcuff dreams are made of. He's also going to have bye week appeal, even when Kamara is on the field.
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Swift is one of the most electrifying players coming out of the 2020 draft class. His only roadblock is the fact that he ended up on the Lions. The Lions offense has been notoriously bad for RBs for years and he'll have to compete with Kerryon Johnson for touches. That being said, Johnson hasn't been able to stay healthy and if anything were to happen to him, Swift would skyrocket in everyone's rankings.Latavius Murray proved his value as a handcuff last year when Alvin Kamara was forced to miss time. In the two games that Kamara missed, Murray ran for 221 yards, scored four total TD's, and caught 14 passes. He should have some stand-alone value but the only real reason to draft Murray would be to handcuff Kamara.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Swift is going to be splitting the workload with Kerryon Johnson this season, but he's still going to make an impact for fantasy. I'm projecting that Swift can be rolled out as a RB2/FLEX play consistently every week.Murray's going to have minimal standalone fantasy value in 2020, but we've seen what he can do if Alvin Kamara misses time. Murray's a fantastic pick in the later rounds.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
What a mess the Lions backfield was in 2019; Kerryon Johnson, Bo Scarborough, Ty Johnson, JD McKissic, CJ Anderson, Paul Perkins, Tra Carson and Wes Hills all started a game with Hills oddly the overall RB9 in PPG bizarrely. Into this nightmare walks D'Andre Swift. The shining light at the end of the tunnel is that the run offence was actually pretty good at times and if Swift is able to earn enough volume, he's got RB1 upside. Sadly, that's unlikely to occur as it projects as the committee approach Matt Patricia seems to favour and that limits Swift's upside significantly. If things break right he may provide big value later in the season but it'll start off very messy so be warned.Latavius Murray remains the league's top handcuff. He showed his worth when Alvin Kamara got injured as Murray gifted his fantasy owners 61 points in just two weeks. Nothing has changed. Murray will remain a desperation weekly start with enormous handcuff upside. He's an excellent gamble once the core of your team is set.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Swift should start the season as the Lions top running back and the Lions did have the 11th ranked offensive line by Pro Football Focus last year. Swift has a chance to be a flex RB with RB2 upside.
