D’Andre Swift rushed nine times for 27 yards and a TD, adding four receptions for 21 yards in the Lions’ 23-22 win over the Falcons on Sunday.
After a monster performance in Week 6, it looked like Swift was on track for an expanded role in Week 7 in a smash spot against Atlanta. We see how that went. Swift finished with just one more touch than Adrian Peterson and trailed 11-9 in carries. The weekly touch distribution continues to be puzzling, and while Swift is clearly the preferred fantasy back, he has to be treated as a flex with RB2 upside rather than a firm RB2 given his inconsistent usage.
