D'Andre Swift News

  • D'Andre Swift a non-factor · Dec 24, 2022

    D'Andre Swift had 12 rushing yards and four receiving yards on just five touches in Detroit's loss to Carolina.

    Swift has remained in our top ten dynasty running backs all season, but the disappointing game results are now starting to pile up. Swift has now had fewer than 13 touches in all but two games since week one and will remain a risky proposition moving forward in the fantasy playoffs. He checks in as our RB8, but that's starting to slip.

  • D'Andre Swift leads in touches · Dec 5, 2022

    D'Andre Swift led all Lions' running backs with 18 touches, producing 62 yards and a touchdown across 14 carries.

    He also reeled in 4-of-6 targets for 49 yards. The touch volume matched his week-one output and he outpaced Jamaal Williams for the first time since week one as well. Appearing fully healthy, it's uncertain what to expect from the running back duo as Williams continues to produce while leading the league in touchdown production with 14. Swift is undeniably one of the most dynamic backs with the ball in his hands but cannot remain off the trainer's table when volume increases. Whether this remains a consistent theme into the future or not, Swift has already seen a slide in his dynasty value, now appearing as DLF's RB6. He remains a shaky RB1 as the off-season approaches.

  • D'Andre Swift plays sparingly · Nov 7, 2022

    D'Andre Swift rushed twice for 10 yards and tallied three receptions for 40 yards in the Lions victory over the Packers in week nine

    Swift managed to at least provide some production for fantasy coaches pressed into starting him during the brutal bye week though he only played 10 (16%) snaps. The team has little incentive to push their star player into the second half of 2022 with little riding on the season. While Swift looked fluid and dynamic, all near term expectations are that the team will continue to provide surging veteran Jamaal Williams with volume touches, rending Swift as an inconsistent risk-on play for the remainder of 2022. Slipping to DLF's RB5, he'll need to prove he can remain healthy for an extended period of time before being counted among the fantasy elite at the position.

  • D'Andre Swift scores · Oct 31, 2022

    Lions running back D'Andre Swift returned to the lineup and scored a touchdown as a receiver in the team's week eight loss to the Dolphins.

    Swift was a risk-on start in his return from injury and salvaged his day with the touchdown. He was clearly playing behind the surging Jamaal Williams who scored two touchdowns on 10 carries, Swift only seeing five totes for a meager six yards. But as a receiver, Swift garnered five targets, converting all five for 27 yards and the touchdown. The bigger question heading into week-nine is whether Swift's reduced role was due to a script of lesser-touches or if Williams is now the favored early-down back. While D'Andre Swift, DLF's RB4, is clearly the more dynamic runner, it's impossible to ignore Williams' season-long production while Swift continues to suffer from recurrent nagging injury. We'll get more clarity in week nine.

  • D'Andre Swift could miss time · Sep 26, 2022

    Lions running back D'Andre Swift suffered a shoulder sprain in week three and could miss some time.

    At this juncture the injury doesn't appear to require surgery but the back could miss multiple weeks. After a 15/144/1 outburst in week one, Swift was looking like a true cornerstone running back to start the season but followed-on with five carries in week two and seven carries in week three, before exiting with the injury. Already sporting a somewhat troubling injury history, Swift has already shown enough to warrant a lofty RB2 value on DLF's running back rankings but yet another injury could threaten his status. As long as Swift returns from the injury quickly, all can be forgiven but an extended absence or follow-on injury is certain to drop his dynasty ranking.

    comment While injury has impacted Swift in year three, it also seems the Lions just do not trust him enough to give him the keys to the backfield. Swift still misses some openings, and while he is far more explosive, he is not as reliable as Jamaal Williams. I believe Swift can still grow as a runner, though his ascent to blue chip dynasty asset no longer looks preordained.
