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
Injury D’Andre Swift expected to play
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 13, 7:00 am

Detroit Lions
Lions’ QB Matthew Stafford (right thumb) and RB D’Andre Swift (illness), each listed as questionable for Sunday, both are expected to play against the Packers, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It remains to be seen how big of a role Swift will have but it sounds like he should be close to a full-go making him a viable RB2 option against the Packers in Week 14. Swift received 21 touches in Week 10 against Washington.

Injury Golladay misses practice Wednesday, Swift limited
Hip injury for Golladay
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 9, 11:06 am

Detroit Lions
Bevell said no practice for Kenny Golladay today. D'Andre Swift will practice today (Tim Twentyman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Rinse and repeat for Golladay who last played in Week 8. He'll need to show some signs of life in Thursday's practice in order to have a chance of playing this week. Swift has battled a concussion and illness in recent weeks. He last played in Week 10. Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson would handle the load against the Packers if Swift can't go.

Injury D'Andre Swift not expected to play
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 26, 9:23 am

Detroit Lions
Lions' RB D’Andre Swift, listed as questionable for today due to a concussion, is unlikely to play against the Texans, per sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Lions will once again be without their two best playmakers in Kenny Golladay and Swift. Expect Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson to share the workload against the Texans today. Kerryon is the better option in PPR leagues. The Texans have given up the 2nd most fantasy points to running backs.

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.
