2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the most dynamic players in college football last season, and considered by many analysts as the top back in the draft, it's no wonder that the Lions couldn't pass on Swift's value in the 2nd round. Yes, they had other needs at the time, but they've also needed a consistent backfield weapon since No.20 hung em up.

Swift joins the Lions as part of a long lineage of talented backs from Georgia. And while I absolutely love his fit in this offense (he'll never see an 8-man box), I have a sneaky suspicion this will be one of the most confounding fantasy backfields in the NFL. Kerryon Johnson, 2018's 2nd round pick has proven to be solid when he's been able to remain healthy and Swift was selected partly because health hasn't come easy for the former Auburn star. I envision a near 50-50 split for these guys with Swift being the preferred option in the passing game. The real cap on Swift's fantasy impact will come near the goal line where the Lions have other short yardage options, as well as big bodied receivers. As things stand I much prefer Swift in PPR leagues where he could catch 50 passes and is explosive enough to get yardage production with limited ground attempts. Now if this backfield thins out a little, watch out, as the potential for RB1 production exists. I really like Swift as an early season FLEX play with league winning prospects down the stretch.

News From The Past 90 Days
Increased role for D'Andre Swift?

By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 25, 9:36 am

Detroit Lions
From @NFLGameDay: #Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell has impressed in KC thus far as he prepares for his debut, while the #Lions will have an expanded role for RB D'Andre Swift. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Swift posted a 14-116-2 rushing line last week against the Jaguars so it wouldn't be a surprise if his role was increased this week. The Falcons have given up the 9th most fantasy points to running backs including 4 receiving touchdowns. We can expect Adrian Peterson to remain in the mix, but this is encouraging for Swift owners.

Injury D'Andre Swift missing practice due to leg injury
Rookie RB behind the curve
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Aug 29, 7:00 am

Detroit Lions
A lingering leg injury that's kept D'Andre Swift off the practice field for more than a week could impact what role the Detroit Lions rookie running back has to start the season. Swift missed his seventh straight practice Friday because of an injury he suffered Aug. 20 in the third padded practice of the summer. The Lions had been counting on their second-round pick to share the backfield workload with Kerryon Johnson, but Swift's injury, combined with the lack of a formal offseason program, has left him in catch-up mode. (Detroit Free Press)

FFToday's Take: This has been the concern for rookies in general as the lack of prep time this off-season is going to affect their opportunites on the field, especially in the early part of the season. Expect to see Johnson as the Week 1 starter and while Swift will no doubt be a big part of the Lions running game, Johnson is becoming a bargain at his current RB43 (9th round) ADP.
