RB - DET
Lions running back D'Andre Swift rushed seven times for 30 yards against the Packers during Sunday's regular-season finale. He also hauled in four of five targets for an additional 16 yards through the air.
Swift was great through his first 10 games of the season. However, an injury on Thanksgiving Day sidelined him for quite some time, then limited his production in Weeks 17 and 18. Fantasy managers should be able to count on Swift as a high-end RB2 next season.
Lions RB D'Andre Swift ran for 32 yards on four carries and caught two passes for seven yards on three targets against Seattle on Sunday.
After being rumored as a "full go" by head coach Dan Campbell, fantasy managers were scrambling to put the Lions lead back in their lineups. During the game, the Lions went down early leading to them having to throw often to catch up. Between the pair of Swift and Jamaal Williams, they saw just 15 carries on the day as opposed to 37 pass attempts. The Lions get back to work against the Packers in Week 18 and should look to take advantage of a poor run defense.
Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell said running back D'Andre Swift (shoulder) is "ready to go" and "looks fresh" for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Swift practiced fully this week and is expected to be all systems go for Week 17 after missing the last four games with a shoulder injury. The 22-year-old has rushed for 555 yards and four touchdowns while catching 56 passes for 429 yards and two scores over 11 games in 2021. Swift will lead Detroit's backfield against a Seahawks defense that ranks ninth in rush DVOA this season. The Lions will most likely have backup QB Tim Boyle under center with starter Jared Goff (knee) listed as doubtful for Week 17, slightly downgrading Detroit's skilled position players. Swift is an RB3/flex and ranked 36th among all fantasy backs in the latest FantasyPros expert consensus rankings.
According to head coach Dan Campbell, Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift is expected to return this week.
Campbell feels that Swift will be able to return this week, which is good news for fantasy managers who were able to advance without their RB1 in the lineup. Swift has been sidelined since injuring his shoulder early in the team's Week 12 loss to the Chicago Bears. He may see his workload reduced in his first game back, but his return to action will be good news for Lions fans and fantasy managers alike.
Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's Week 16 matchup against the Falcons.
Craig Reynolds and Jamaal Williams will split the majority of the early-down work for Detroit. Swift will target a Week 17 return against the Seahawks.
