Peterson continues to get carries in this offense and he can be viewed as a fine fill-in option if fantasy teams are in a pinch. He can be viewed as a RB3 this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I mentioned last week that it was possible we saw Swift shifted into a bigger role after the bye week, and while the box score says that Swift had his breakout game, I wouldn't be so quick to say that. Do you know how many touches the Lions running backs had last week? 38 of them. Swift saw 17 of them, or 44.7 percent. Do you know how many touches this Lions backfield averaged coming into this game? 26.5 of them. Applying Week 6's touch share, Swift would project for 11.9 touches per game, which isn't a whole lot. His role could (and should) continue to grow, but he's far from a locked-in stud in fantasy. We talked about it last week with Alexander Mattison, but the Falcons are a funnel defense. Teams have realized that, as just 36.4 percent of plays against them have been run plays. That's the fifth-lowest mark in the league. The opportunity in the passing game cannot be overlooked, though. Their opponents have essentially used a short passing game instead of the run game, as running backs have accounted for 55 targets, 328 yards, and four touchdowns through the air, which are all the most in the NFL. That would benefit Swift's role the most, as he's averaged 2.02 yards per route run this year, which ranks as the third-highest in the NFL among running backs who've seen at least 15 targets. He's also run nearly 20 more routes than Peterson. So, while Peterson is still going to be involved, Swift should have the more valuable role this week, and maybe moving forward. Knowing there have been five different running backs who've caught at least five passes against the Falcons, Swift should deliver a stable floor as an RB3, but don't jump to conclusions just yet. Peterson still had 16 touches last week, so he's still certainly involved, and he's also totaled 48.3 percent of the Lions carries in the red zone, but oddly enough, Swift has totaled four carries inside the five-yard line while Peterson has just one. Peterson should be considered a low-upside, low-end RB3/high-end RB4. 
Derek Lofland

Peterson is going to lose touches to Swift as the season progresses, but with 4 teams on bye he could have flex value against a bad Falcons defense.
