Lions RB D'Andre Swift delivered a pair of TDs in Sunday's lopsided win over the Bears. He rushed 11 times for 78 yards, including a 17-yard TD early in the 2nd quarter. Swift added a 21-yards TD catch midway through the 3rd quarter, accounting for most of his 39 receiving yards on 4 catches (4 targets). The 15 touches marked Swift's 3rd most of the season. It was just his 2nd game with double-digit carries since the season opener. It was also Swifts 1st multiple-TD game since December 2020. He'll face a generous Green Bay RB defense in Week 18.

Lions RB Justin Jackson (hip) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bears. Craig Reynolds is active as Detroit’s #3 RB, but Jackson’s absence could be a slight boost for RB D’Andre Swift.

Lions RBs combined for just 22 rushing yards on 12 carries in Saturday's loss at Carolina. RB D'Andre Swift rushed 4 times for 12 yards and caught just 1 of his 5 targets for 13 more. Jamaal Williams posted 7-11 rushing and caught both of his targets for 3 yards. The whole Detroit offense gets a positive matchup back home with Chicago in Week 17, but the RBs won't be exciting plays.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift led the team in rushing yards for Sunday's win over the Jets, tallying 52 on 8 attempts (6.5 per rush). He trailed RB Jamaal Williams by 5 carries (13-33) and watched another 6 go to Justin Jackson (for 16 yards). Swift garnered 9 targets, a season high and 2nd most on the team. He caught 5 for a mere 23 yards (4.6 per reception). Only WR Amon-Ra St. Brown drew more looks. He caught 7 of his 10 for 76 yards.

Lions RB Justin Jackson (illness) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. He should continue to serve as the #3 RB behind Jamaal Williams and D’Andre Swift.

Lions RB Justin Jackson has been downgraded to questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Jets due to an illness. He's averaged 4.3 carries and 2.0 targets over the past 6 games, so his absence would open up some opportunity for RBs Jamaal Williams and D'Andre Swift.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift is not listed on the Week 15 injury report. Swift has averaged 14.5 carries, 4.5 targets and 143.0 total yards in 2 games when he wasn't on the injury report this season. He mustered just 5.1 carries, 4.5 targets and 42.8 total yards per game when on the injury report. We're not necessarily saying that Swift is about to go for 140+ total yards vs. the Jets this weekend -- but he's a more comfortable fantasy play if he can remain off the injury report.

Lions RBs produced little in Sunday's pass-driven victory over the Vikings. Jamaal Williams claimed 16 of 26 RB carries but managed only 37 yards. D'Andre Swift added just 39 total yards, carrying 6 times for 21 and catching 3 of 4 targets for 18. Justin Jackson claimed the group's only TD, scoring on the ground from 15 yards out. The group gets an even tougher matchup at the Jets in Week 15.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle) is not listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He was limited in Wednesday’s practice but a full-go on Thursday and Friday. Swift probably still isn’t at 100%, but he should be ready for a significant role in this weekend’s game vs. the Vikings.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. That has him looking like a comfier Week 14 fantasy play, but we'll see how he's listed on tomorrow's final injury report.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was off the injury report last week for the first time since the opener -- and then went out and had his busiest and most productive game since Week 1. We'll see how the rest of the week goes for Swift. We're fully expecting him to play vs. the Vikings on Sunday, but he'll be a riskier fantasy play if he doesn't get in at least 1 full practice.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift saw a large increase in playing time in Sunday's victory over the Jaguars. He ran 14 times for 62 yards and a TD, adding 4 catches for 49 yards on 6 targets. Swift played more snaps than RB Jamaal Williams for the 1st time since Week 2, beating him by 3 carries and 5 targets. Williams still scored again, among 11 carries for 35 yards. His only target fell incomplete.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift is off this week's injury report for the 1st time since Week 1. He's been battling ankle and shoulder since the opener and been limited to 4.6 carries and 4.6 targets per game since returning in Week 8. It's certainly worth noting, though, that Swift was a full participant in practice both of the past 2 weeks. So we wouldn't take being removed from the injury report as a sign that his role is set to grow significantly. But we'll certainly be keeping an eye on it in Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams delivered his league-leading 13th rushing TD of the season in Thursday's narrow loss to the Bills. He also handled 67% of Detroit RB carries, taking 18 for 66 yards (3.7 per rush). That marked his 4th straight game with 16+ attempts and 3rd consecutive game with a TD. Home matchups with the Jaguars and Vikings the next 2 weeks look decent for Williams' chances of continuing his useful output. RB D'Andre Swift got another measly 5 carries (for 19 yards) but ranked 2nd on the team with 8 targets (4 catches, 24 yards). The 13 opportunities are his largest total since Week 1. RB Justin Jackson added 4 carries for 4 yards and 1 catches for 15 among 2 targets.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams had a mediocre rushing day ... except for his 3 scores from inside the 5-yard line. Overall, Williams gained 64 yards on 17 attempts. D'Andre Swift remained limited, carrying just 5 times and seeing 3 targets. He did manage to score on the ground and caught all 3 of his targets but produced just 32 total yards. We'll keep watching for signals of his workload increasing. Justin Jackson also chimed in with a 9-66 rushing line and an 11-yard catch. Williams has been a TD-reliant fantasy play, but he's now up to 12 rushing scores for the season.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Giants. Be careful, though. Swift was in the same boat heading into Week 8 before tallying just 5 carries and 5 targets in a loss to Miami. He seemed to admit on Friday that he’s still not at 100%. Swift remains a shaky fantasy play until we see his volume grow.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift seemed to admit on Friday that he's still not at 100%. “Kind of pushing through right now, still dealing with stuff but at the end of the day it’s about winning, making sure I’m out there doing my job whenever my number’s called," Swift told ESPN. He added that his best football is “most definitely” ahead this year. But Swift remains a risky fantasy play until we see his snaps and touches climb.
