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.Sanders is one of the most exciting RBs to watch in the entire NFL, but he's been a headache for fantasy managers over the past couple of seasons. While he could be incredible for fantasy if he was given the workload that a CMC or Zeke got, the Eagles coaching staff has refused to lean on him and they've consistently rotated in multiple other options. With Nick Sirianni coming in as Head Coach, there was some optimism that things could be different this time around. However, the Eagles have Boston Scott and Jordan Howard still on this roster and they added Gainwell in the NFL Draft, therefore signaling that we should be expecting more of the same. With Hurts taking away some rushing volume, plus the presence of multiple other RBs in this backfield, there doesn't appear to be much upside to selecting Sanders this upcoming season. He can be viewed as a low-end RB2 this year.

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 pastHas any RB's stock fallen further this summer? Regressed in passing game in 2020 and every time you turn around there's a new a quote about an RBBC in PHI

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. AvoidJalen Hurts is a threat on the read option and that will open up running lanes for Sanders. Rookie WR Devonta Smith adds some much needed punch into the offense. The Eagles line was decimated with injuries last year. They should be much better in 2021. Many fantasy owners were burned by Sanders. The concern is that the Eagles continue with a RBBC by splitting the carries with Jordan Howard and Boston Scott. Jalen Hurts could also vulture some TDs. Keep an eye on this in training camp. With a 3rd round ADP, that still seems too high for a guy in a RBBC. I need a better price point than that.

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.2020 Stat Line: 164 attempts, 867 yards, 5.3 Average, 6 Touchdowns, 52 Receiving Targets, 28 Catches, 197 Yards Receiving.

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.Sanders has rolled for over 2,000 scrimmage yards and 12 total touchdowns in 28 NFL games, though he hasn't exactly lit the world on fire with his production. He's been utilized sparingly for a back of his talent, and new HC Nick Sirianni (formerly with the Colts) isn't likely to turn Sanders into a workhorse back. Expect him to provide mid-range RB2 numbers this season.

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.The start to Sanders' career hasnt been what we'd hoped for, delivering RB2 or better numbers in just 14-of-28 of games (50 percent). To be fair, he hasn't been used in a workhorse role, totaling more than 15 touches just 11 times over that span. Will the departure of Doug Pederson allow him to shine, or will Nick Sirianni implement a timeshare as well? The depth chart now consists of Sanders, Kerryon Johnson, and Kenneth Gainwell, so this could very well be a Colts-like backfield, which would make sense given that's where Sirianni comes from. Sanders should be treated as a timeshare RB2 who's more talented than most in that conversation.

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-highLove that the team is turning to Hurts, as Sanders played significantly better w/ him under center. Wonder how new HC will deploy backs, don't enjoy Howard's return & they stole Gainwell. Love the talent and potential, but the volume & injury question marks have me a bit lower on Miles - 8/23: Now he's been trapped in a near-even timeshare w/ Boston Scott. Committee-rich coach really could cap ceiling and floor here

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.Sanders had 156.4 fantasy points in 12 games and the Eagles have a new coach, Nick Sirianni. Sanders figures to be the lead running back in this offense and he is a borderline RB1 with upside if he can stay healthy and the Eagles do not lean too much toward a RBBC.

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.
