2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Peterson and Frank Gore continue to lead the geriatric running back party or players who should have retired but who cannot seem to give up the game. At age 35, Peterson once again looks to be a thorn in the side of Derrius Guice truthers, despite the fact that he has barely averaged more than four yards per carry over the past two seasons.

If Peterson does make the squad and is not a training camp cut, look for him to share the first and second down role with Guice. Rookie Antonio Gibson from Memphis is a talented back who could also eat into the carry load of each player, and free agent signees Peyton Barber and J.D. McKissic are also in the mix.

It would not surprise us to see the Redskins backfield become a wasteland of no value and something that owners may want to avoid altogether.

News From The Past 90 Days
D'Andre Swift lobbies for AD's return
Soon-to-be 36-year-old set to hit free agency
By: Doug Orth | Thu Feb 4, 2:55 pm

Detroit Lions
D’Andre Swift is coming off a promising rookie season in Detroit. The second-round RB ran for 511 yards and averaged an impressive 4.6 yards per carry while also proving himself as a receiver, catching 46 passes out of the backfield. Swift is primed for a bigger role in 2021 under new head coach Dan Campbell and offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn. But Swift still wants the veteran presence of Adrian Peterson with him in the Lions backfield. “I definitely want him back,” Swift told CBS Sports while adding he “picked (Peterson's) brain” throughout his rookie year. (USA TODAY)

FFToday's Take: Campbell and Lynn likely view Swift in the same kind of light as Alvin Kamara, but the smash-mouth mentality it appears they hope to use in Detroit makes it reasonable to keep a physical back like Peterson around. Whether Peterson wants to remain in Detroit is another story, but the combination of his age and reputation as an early-down grinder only figure to limit his options on the open market.


Injury Golladay misses practice Wednesday, Swift limited
Hip injury for Golladay

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 misses practice Thursday
Did practice Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 3, 2:27 pm

Detroit Lions
Adrian Peterson says D'Andre Swift hasn't been himself since suffering a brain injury, hasn't had the same energy level. Said it's been hard to watch. Swift did try to practice yesterday, was out today. (Kyle Meinke on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This doesn't sound good for Swift's chances of suiting up Sunday against the Bears. We could be looking at another committee of Peterson and Kerryon Johnson this week. There Bears are a negative matchup for running backs, allowing the 9th fewest fantasy points to the position.
