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.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. It's an upgrade over his limited participation last Wednesday. Swift seems to be trending in the right direction but remains a risky fantasy play until we actually see him get ample volume on a Sunday.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift continued to see limited work in Sunday's narrow victory over the Bears. He carried just 6 times for 6 yards but scored a 9-yard TD to boost his fantasy day. (That means, of course, that his other 5 rushes combined to lose 3 yards.) Swift added just 1 reception among 3 targets in a game that found only 3 Lions catching multiple passes. RB Jamaal Williams led the backfield once again with 16 carries for 59 yards and a TD. Justin Jackson claimed the backfield's other 3 targets, catching 2 for 14 yards. Swift declined to speak with the media last week and was reportedly angry with his low level of usage. We'll see if HC Dan Campbell reveals any change to his plan heading into next Sunday's visit to the Giants.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) is not listed on the final Week 10 injury report. He was a full-go in Friday’s practice after being limited the previous 2 days. That’s an improvement over last week – but it’s worth remembering that Swift was a full participant in all 3 practices leading up to Week 8, before getting just 5 carries and 5 targets. It’s certainly possible that Swift’s volume grows this weekend vs. the Bears, but he remains a low-floor fantasy play.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He's fully expected to play vs. the Bears this weekend, but it certainly doesn't look like he'll be ready for a full workload.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. That's an improvement from last week, when Swift did not practice at all on Wednesday. We'll continue to monitor Swift's health over the next few days, leading up to Sunday's game vs. the Bears.

Lions HC Dan Campbell said Monday that RB D'Andre Swift avoided a setback in Sunday's win over the Packers. Swift played just 16% of the offensive snaps in that one, finishing with 2 carries and 3 catches on 4 targets. "We're hopeful we can give him a little bit more this week," Campbell said. We'll monitor Swift's status this week, but he can't be considered more than a RB3 or flex play until we see his volume grow.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift collected just 2 carries (for 10 yards) and 3 receptions (among 4 targets) in Sunday's win over the Packers. He delivered a solid 40 yards receiving, ranking 2nd on the team. But the low usage fell in line with signals from HC Dan Campbell through the week that Swift's role would be limited. We'll see what the coach has to say leading up to the Week 10 visit to Chicago. RB Jamaal Williams amassed 24 carries for 81 yards against Green Bay.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Packers. He got in just limited practices on Thursday and Friday this week and is expected to play a limited role today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) is expected to play vs. the Packers today. He'll be "in a limited role like last week," Schefter adds. "Lions are trying to manage Swift’s snaps to get the most out of him." Swift actually played 55% of Detroit's offensive snaps last week but finished with just 5 carries and 5 targets. He carries a wide range of outcomes in Week 9 fantasy lineups. See where Swift sits in the RB Rankings.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Packers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. HC Dan Campbell said Friday that the “plan” is for Swift to play but that they’ll need to "see where he's at." After tallying just 5 carries and 5 targets last weekend, Swift is no better than a risk/reward RB2 in Week 9 fantasy lineups.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. We're expecting him to suit up for this weekend's game vs. the Packers. But Swift won't be at 100% and figures to be on a touch count.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. He was a full participant all last week before handling just 5 carries and 5 targets in the loss to Miami. HC Dan Campbell admitted earlier this week that Swift still isn't at 100%. We're still expecting him to play against the Packers on Sunday, but don't expect Swift to get a full workload.

Lions HC Dan Campbell made it clear Tuesday that RB D'Andre Swift still isn't back to 100%. “We probably gave Swift one too many carries,” Campbell said of his Week 8 usage. “We love Swift. Glad he’s out there, but he’s not back." Swift played 54% of Detroit's offensive snaps in the loss to Miami but finished with just 5 carries and 5 targets. That followed a full week of practice. It doesn't sound like we should expect significantly more work in this Sunday's game vs. the Packers.

The Lions are trading TE T.J. Hockenson to the Vikings, along with a 2023 4th-round pick and a 2024 conditional 4th-round pick, in exchange for a 2023 2nd-round pick and 2024 3rd-round pick, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. It's surprising for a few reasons, most notably because it's an intra-division trade and involves a former 1st-round pick still on his rookie deal. Hockenson counts just $6.5 million against this year's salary cap and has a $9.3 million 5th-year option for 2023. He's been slightly underwhelming through 3+ NFL seasons considering he was the 8th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. But Hockenson's 44.0 receiving yards per game since 2019 rank 10th among TEs. He's averaged a career-best 56.4 yards per game so far this year and ranks 7th among 31 qualifying TEs in Pro Football Focus' 2022 receiving grades. Minnesota is an OK spot for Hockenson's rest-of-season fantasy value. He'll obviously be behind WR Justin Jefferson in the pecking order but could challenge WR Adam Thielen for the #2 spot. And the Vikings have been a pass-leaning offense this year, ranking 7th at 38.0 pass attempts per game. (The Lions rank 15th at 35.7.). Hockenson will face negative fantasy-scoring matchups the next 2 weeks vs. Washington and Buffalo, but the schedule looks nice after that. Detroit, meanwhile, is left with TEs Brock Wright and James Mitchell. Wright is the preferred add but is probably only worth a look in TE-premium leagues like the FFPC. RB D'Andre Swift and WR Amon-Ra St. Brown should pick up more targets with Hockenson gone.

Lions RB D’Andre Swift returned in Week 8 to post only 10 total touches. He was out-carried 10-5 by Jamaal Williams but salvaged his fantasy day with 5 catches and a TD while isolated on a LB. Detroit jumped out to a big lead in this one before trailing over the final 15 minutes. While perhaps the team simply eased Swift back into action, it’s worth nothing that he participated fully in practice last Wednesday-Friday. We’ll see if his workload grows this week against Green Bay.
