D'Andre Swift explodes · Sep 16, 2023
D'Andre Swift exploded in week two, producing 175 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries.
It was a perfect bounce-opportunity for the offseason acquisition as Kenneth Gainwell sat due to injury. In fact, Swift could have had a HUGE night if not for coming up an inch short on another goal line rush and not hearing his number called on a third goal line opportunity. Inside the one yard line, teams can't stop Jalen Hurts and the Eagles' quarterback-push play. As for Swift, the script made a lot of sense and aware dynasty coaches had him in lineups following his poor week-one showing. By all appearances, the Eagles were managing Swift's touches in week one in an attempt to keep him healthy on a short week and with the game well in hand. The bigger question surrounds the rotation once Gainwell is healthy again, but Swift's dynamic and ability will be difficult to keep off the field. Too many carries, however, and injury could strike again. Swift is, arguably, the most dynamic runner from the loaded 2020 draft class which hasn't lived up to expectations. If he can remain off the trainer's table and retain his RB1 status in Philadelphia, he has a long runway for further production. His RB22 ranking on DLF shows the uncertainty of his ceiling-floor potential.
D'Andre Swift in a committee · Sep 13, 2023
Nick Sirianni had to little to offer when explaining D'Andre Swift's two touches in the team's week-one victory over the Patriots
Meanwhile Rashaad Penny was a healthy scratch for the game and 'backup' Kenneth Gainwell produced 54 yards on 14 carries. Sirianni did seem to suggest it wasn't by design and they don't want it to occur again, but it's hardly reassurance. The lack of explanation provides little hope for a change in week two. The team has a short week, playing on Thursday night when the Eagles face the Vikings. It's clear there's a full RBBC in place and even those considering adding Gainwell to starting rosters should do so as a last resort. For those rostering Swift, the hope is that the team is only managing his touches in an attempt to keep him healthy for the second half of the season, but that won't ease the frustration for dynasty managers. Found as DLF's RB21, the next few weeks are critical if D'Andre Swift is to stem his eroding dynasty value.
D'Andre Swift catching passes · Jul 31, 2023
D'Andre Swift is operating primarily as a receiver in camp
He's reportedly been lining up all across the formation primarily to catch passes. Rashaad Penny is expected to open the season as the RB1 but has been unable to remain healthy in any season. The acquisition of Swift this offseason brought hope that he could be the RB1 but, like Penny, he has struggled with injury each season as well. It's a fluid situation and both backs, should they remain off the trainer's table, could post well in the Eagles offense, but lose value inside the red zone due to Jalen Hurts' rushing ability. D'Andre Swift is listed as DLF's RB19.
D'Andre Swift traded to Philadelphia · Apr 29, 2023
The Detroit Lions have traded running back D'Andre Swift to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles get D’Andre Swift and 7th round pick (No. 249), while the Lions received a fourth-round pick in 2025, and seventh-round pick (No. 219). In short, the Lions basically dumped Swift for a fourth round draft pick. The writing was on the wall when Detroit drafted Jahmyr Gibbs and this is great news for both of them. Swift won't be the bell cow in Philadelphia and is destined to have a lot of rushing scores siphoned off by Jalen Hurts but he should start over Rashaad Penny and Kenneth Gainwell and be a massive threat catches passes out of the backfield. Swift is likely back into the top 15 conversation after the trade. Just keep in mind he's on the last year of his contract and there's no guarantee he stays with the Eagles long-term.
D'Andre Swift may want out · Apr 28, 2023
The Lions are reportedly fielding trade calls for running back D'Andre Swift.
The Lions draft room erupted last night when they stunned most of planet Earth with the selection of Alabama running back Jahmyr Gibbs at #12 overall. The addition of Gibbs creates an instant depth chart mess as he joins Swift and the newly signed David Montgomery in the backfield. Swift's representatives reportedly contacted Detroit right away to express their displeasure. At this point, it seems a trade is more likely than not. Swift comes in as our RB16, a ranking that will move down dramatically if he stays in the Motor City.
D'Andre Swift in trouble · Apr 28, 2023
The Detroit Lions selected running back Jahmyr Gibbs in the 2023 NFL Draft.
The Detroit Lions were an unlikely landing spot for a top running back in the 2023 NFL Draft since they had D'Andrew Swift returning and signed David Montgomery away from the Chicago Bears. Still, the Lions made Jahmyr Gibbs the second running back off the board. It appears Swift, the dynasty RB15, has fallen out of favor in Detroit. It remains to be seen if he's still on the Lions' roster when the season starts this fall.
