The snap count between these three last week was Swift 34, Peterson 24, Johnson 20. That's about as gross as a timeshare gets. Peterson led the way with 17 touches, while Johnson had seven, and Swift had six. I'm following the snaps and saying that Swift's role will only get bigger, though his drop in the end zone for what would've been a game-winner didn't help. The Packers were a defense to attack with running backs last year, allowing a massive 4.86 yards per carry (4th-highest mark in NFL). There were just three teams who allowed more fantasy points on the ground to running backs than them (Panthers, Jaguars, Dolphins). That seems to bode well for Peterson's role, but the concern is that they're on the road against the Packers and their defense won't be able to stop anything. That could lead to a bigger role for Swift, who ran 25 pass routes while Peterson ran just nine of them. The Packers allowed 22 different running backs post top-36 numbers against them last year, so we're likely to get at least one usable performance here. Knowing Swift got the lone carry inside the five-yard line for the Lions, he's the one I'd want to play as a mediocre RB3/flex with some upside if they fall behind. Peterson should net 12-plus touches and can he started as a high-end RB4 for teams with troubles at the running back position. Johnson appears to be an afterthought outside of spelling Peterson on early-down work, as he ran just nine pass routes.Mattison isn't someone I'd want to play while Cook is at full health, especially in a matchup against a team that didn't allow much on the ground to running backs.
