Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 I keep moving him up. The addition of LeSean McCoy feels ominous for the rookie (but not as much for RoJo, who I think could still breakout in this offense).
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.We heard the Bucs say all offseason that Jones was their guy. We didn't even hear about them meeting with any of the free agent running backs. Then we heard the name Keshawn Vaughn in the third round, creating a problem for Jones. When teams select a running back on Day 2, it's typically to play them right out of the gate, even if it's not a clear-cut loss of the job for Jones. No matter which way you slice it, he has some new and improved competition.
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.Jones began to show flashes of potential as the season progress last year and now in a revamped Bucs offense, he has legitimate upside. While there is upside, there are also plenty of risks involved in this pick. The Bucs just spent a 3rd-round pick on Ke'Shawn Vaughn as well as signing veteran LeSean McCoy. I think it's going to come down to Jones versus Vaughn and whoever wins should have legitimate fantasy value.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Jones is a tough back to project heading into the 2020 season. He ended the year last year on a high note with a couple of huge games and with the departure of Peyton Barber, looked to have a clear path to dominant touches. But the Bucs drafted Ke'Shawn Vaughn and have now added LeSean McCoy. Still, with no preseason games and a limited training camp, Jones should get the lion's share of the touches given that he's been in the system already. With the muscle he's added this offseason and with Tom Brady under center, he has a ton of potential, but he'll need to avoid mistakes early in the season to hold his role.
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.Ronald Jones had a disappointing sophomore season, splitting carries with reliable plodder Peyton Barber and struggling with pass-protection. Nevertheless, there were positive signs for the 22-year-old as he started to establish himself with a couple of 100+ yard performances to end the season. Sadly, the Buccs have muddied the waters by drafting Ke'Shawn Vaughn and bringing in LeSean McCoy. That makes RoJo very hard to trust this season. The upside is that Bruce Arians rarely trusts his rookies out of the gate and it's possible Jones gets your season off to a blistering start. He can be paired with Vaughn though I don't love that tactic as a committee is a real risk. I prefer Jones as a zero-RB early-season gamble who may just pay off in a big way.
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.One of the Tampa Bay RBs is going to produce this season. Right now, it's just a guessing game as to which one it will be. Will it be Jones, who knows this system? Or will it be the third-round rookie RB, Ke'Shawn Vaughn? Jones struggled last season in pass protection and as a receiver, which are two incredibly important traits to Bruce Arians and Tom Brady. If Vaughn can excel in those areas, he's going to get onto the field ahead of Jones. I'm currently projecting Jones to begin the season as the starter, but I believe we'll see Vaughn take over sooner than later.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Jones tallied a strong 10.0 yards per catch on his 31 receptions. Pro Football Focus graded him just 73rd among all RBs in receiving. He fared better by Football Outsiders metrics, though, ranking 17th in DVOA and 20th in DYAR among 50 qualifying backs. PFF liked his rushing better, grading Jones 43rd at the position. FO had him 24th among 45 qualifiers in rushing DVOA, though at a rate below average-level performance. Fantasy wise, Jones ranked 35th in PPR points per game. @SchaufDS
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.
