Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Despite playing in one of the worst offenses in the league, Swift is now the RB3 on the year and is averaging 16.6 fantasy points per game. He's making the most of his garbage time production and he leads the league in targets at the RB position. We all know that the talent is there, but the conversations leading into the year were all centered around whether or not he would be able to thrive in this poor Lions offense. We know now that the situation around him doesn't matter, he's going to produce regardless. The Eagles defense is allowing the 5th-most fantasy points to opposing RBs this season and Swift belongs in your lineup as a locked-in RB1. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Swift sees a ton of work in the passing game and he should be a RB1 at home against an Eagles D that is 28th against fantasy running backs.
