The Bears have agreed to a three-year deal with RB D'Andre Swift, according to multiple reports. Chicago will pay Swift $24 million over that span, with $15.3 million of that guaranteed. That should position Swift as the backfield leader for at least the next two seasons -- assuming he stays healthy, of course. Swift opened his lone Philly season barely playing behind Kenneth Gainwell but then exploded when Gainwell missed Week 2. Swift worked as the lead back the rest of the way, averaging a career-high 41.3 carries per game but a career-low 2.4 receptions per contest. He should immediately step ahead of Bears incumbents Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson as both a runner and receiver. If the QB shift to Caleb Williams comes to fruition, then Swift would gain target upside over what Philly presented (or what Justin Fields would present). Swift has been a solid-to-good value in early best ball drafting. Expect his ADP to rise now that he has found starter money on the market. Swift's RB31 position in Underdog Fantasy to date gives him plenty of room to move up the board and still be worth targeting. Check our RB rankings to see where he lands.

Eagles RB D’Andre Swift (illness) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Giants. RBs Kenneth Gainwell, Boston Scott, and Rashaad Penny are all active. We’re expecting Gainwell to lead the way – but that might depend on how motivated the Eagles are to win this one.

Eagles RB D'Andre Swift is not expected to play today against the Giants because of illness, according to multiple reports. That would leave the backfield to Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott -- maybe Rashaad Penny. Over-trusting any remaining member of the Philly backfield will be risky in a game the Eagles likely figure won't matter. (They need Washington to beat Dallas to have a shot at improving their playoff position.) But there's also upside if you're selecting a DFS RB.

Eagles RB D’Andre Swift (illness) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. Swift should be fine come Sunday, but you’ll need to make sure he’s active around 3 pm ET.

Eagles HC Nick Sirianni said Monday that he'll consider sitting some starters in Sunday's regular-season finale vs. the Giants. Philly can win the NFC East only if the Cowboys lose to the Commanders -- a game in which Dallas is currently favored by 13. If the Cowboys win, the Eagles are locked into the No. 5 seed. "I'm not saying yes, I'm not saying no. I'm saying everything's discussed," Sirianni said of his starters playing on Sunday. Hopefully we have a clearer idea of the plan by the end of this week.

Eagles RB D’Andre Swift put forth respectable production in Week 17 vs. the Cardinals, ending the game with 13 carries for 61 yards. Even with one more regular season game, he’s already set career highs in carries (229) and scrimmage yards (1,263). However, Swift is also pacing for a career-low 52 targets. He’s set to hit the free agent market in 2024 at 25 years old. Staying with the Eagles’ high-powered offense would likely be good for his rushing volume but would also likely limit his target outlook. Beware of valuing Swift too highly in dynasty at the moment, and don't be afraid to consider "sell" opportunities.

Eagles RB D’Andre Swift is continuing to trend upward. He tallied 20 carries for 92 yards and a TD in Monday night’s victory vs. the Giants. While he saw no work in the passing game for the second time this season, Swift’s usage is ramping up much closer to his season average of 16.9 touches per game. He’d seen a pair of flop games between Week 13-14 in which he received 21 touches combined, but those were blowout losses in which the Eagles’ offense operated within heavily negative game scripts. The team’s last two contests have produced much closer outcomes and have rewarded Swift as a result. This will be important to remember ahead of their Week 17 matchup vs. the Cardinals. Arizona ranks as the second-best RB matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed and 31st in run defense DVOA in 2023. This is the kind of spot where Swift should be able to post borderline RB1 numbers for managers in fantasy championships. Don’t hesitate to fire him up in your lineup.

Eagles RB D’Andre Swift had a nice bounce-back game in Week 15 vs. the Seahawks, finishing with 18 carries for 74 rushing yards with 2 catches for 1 yard as a pass-catcher. The veteran had only handled 18 combined touches in the past two weeks due to negative game scripts against the 49ers and Cowboys. The closer nature of Monday night’s game helped Swift see more involvement and should be encouraging for fantasy managers looking ahead. Week 16’s matchup against a Giants defense that allows the fourth-most rushing yards per game (131.6) this season sets up as a good spot for Swift to build upon this success and be treated as a strong RB2 candidate in lineups.

Eagles RB D’Andre Swift was stymied by the Cowboys’ run defense in Week 14, ending the contest with just 39 yards on 11 carries. He was also blanked in the receiving department, getting 0 targets for the first time this season. Swift’s 3.9 PPR points on Sunday mark his lowest output since Week 1 and his third consecutive game under double digits. As frustrating as he’s been, there’s good news: The Eagles’ remaining schedule ranks third-easiest for RBs per our adjusted fantasy points allowed and features two matchups against defenses (Giants, Cardinals) who rank within the top five of rushing yards per game allowed in 2023. Don’t give up on Swift just yet.

Eagles RB D'Andre Swift rushed 18 times in Sunday's win over the Cowboys but gained just 43 yards. The 18 carries were his most since Week 2. The 2.4 yards per carry was his second-lowest mark of the year. Swift exploded into view with 6.9 yards per carry across weeks 2 and 3, racking up 175 and 130 yards. Since then, however, he has averaged just 3.4 yards per rush and 51.0 yards per game across six contests. That span has coincided with G Cam Jurgens' foot injury. He left the first game of that span early and has missed the five since. Jurgens' impending return can obviously only help the run game and should assist Swift's efficiency. The RB did, at least, add 31 yards on 2 receptions against the Cowboys. He watched QB Jalen Hurts and RB Kenneth Gainwell claim the team's two rushing scores, though.

Eagles RB D’Andre Swift carried the ball 15 times for 62 rushing yards in Week 7 vs. the Dolphins. He also added 3 catches for 13 yards as a pass-catcher in the contest. Unfortunately, his teammate Kenneth Gainwell siphoned off a rushing TD and limited Swift to just 10.5 PPR points. Still, he’s recorded double-digit PPR points in every game since taking over as the team’s starter in Week 2. Not all bad! Next week, the Eagles’ backfield will face slightly stiffer competition against their NFC East rival Commanders.

Eagles RB D'Andre Swift delivered a nice receiving line amid an otherwise tough outing in Sunday's loss to the Jets. Swift caught a team-high eight passes for 40 yards and a TD (Philly's lone passing score). His 10 targets trailed WR DeVonta Smith's team lead by 1. It was Swift's second straight game with at least 6 receptions and third straight with 4+. Swift struggled on the ground against the Jets, though, gaining just 18 yards on a team-high 10 carries. We won't fret that aspect, as RBs Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott logged just 2 carries apiece. Swift remains the clear backfield leader in a strong running game.

Eagles RB D'Andre Swift ran just OK on the ground in Sunday's win over the Rams. He drew 17 carries vs. Kenneth Gainwell's seven and turned them into 70 yards (4.1 per rush). Swift added a 6-38 receiving line on 6 targets to boost his PPR line. Most importantly, the work split between Swift (23 opportunities) and Gainwell (9) makes Swift the easy choice to start in fantasy lineups until something changes.

Eagles RB D'Andre Swift carried 14 times for 56 yards and a TD in Sunday's OT win over the Commanders. The 4.0 yards per carry marked a downturn vs. Swift's previous two games. But he beat Kenneth Gainwell by 10 carries and 4-2 in targets. Swift caught all four for 23 yards. He's looking like a weekly fantasy starter until something changes.

Eagles RB Rashaad Penny is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Commanders. With RB Boston Scott back from his concussion, Penny sinks back down to fourth on Philly's depth chart.
