Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Thursday that it "feels like a long shot" for Swift to make it back for Week 14. We'll keep an eye on him next week. Jamaal Williams is a volume-fueled RB2 in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

"It feels like a long shot" for Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) to play in Week 14, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says. That jibes with ESPN's Jeremy Fowler's Wednesday report that Swift could miss "multiple weeks." Fantasy owners should keep Swift stashed but plan on being without him for at least the next 2 weeks. Jamaal Williams will be a volume-based RB2 for however long Swift is out.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift could miss "multiple weeks" with the sprained AC joint in his shoulder, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. "Lions will be cautious with their top back," Fowler adds. That makes sense considering the 0-10-1 Lions are looking ahead to 2022. Swift should be stashed on benches in all fantasy leagues, but Jamaal Williams will be a volume-based RB2 for however long Swift is out.

Lions HC Dan Campbell hinted Monday that RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) is unlikely to play vs. the Vikings this weekend. "It’s hard to say that you’d see him playing, but there again, we’ll know a lot more on how he feels tomorrow and then certainly Wednesday," Campbell said. "But I know he’s hurting a little bit." We'll keep an eye on Swift this week, but fantasy owners should be making other plans for Week 13. If Swift is out on Sunday, Jamaal Williams would be a volume-based RB2.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift is considered "day to day" with the shoulder injury he suffered on Thanksgiving, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So Swift dodged a serious injury and seemingly has a shot to be ready for Week 13. RB Jamaal Williams will still be worth adding if available on waivers wires in case Swift can't play vs. the Vikings next weekend.

Lions HC Dan Campbell said after Thursday's loss to the Bears that RB D'Andre Swift has a shoulder sprain. The type and severity of the sprain will determine how long Swift is sidelined. We'll pass along an update when we get one. Jamaal Williams will be a volume-fueled RB2 play for as long as Swift is out.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift hurt his shoulder in the 2nd quarter of Thursday's game vs. the Bears. He's officially questionable to return. We'll update Swift's status when we know more. His absence leaves Jamaal Williams as Detroit's feature back.

Update: Swift has been ruled out.

11:07am EST 11/25/21

Lions QB Jared Goff (oblique) is active for today's game vs. the Bears. He's a bottom-barrel QB2 but an upgrade over QB Tim Boyle for RB D'Andre Swift and TE T.J. Hockenson.

Lions QB Jared Goff (oblique) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Bears. He was limited in practice all week. HC Dan Campbell said Tuesday that it's "leaning toward" Goff returning for this one. He's not a fantasy option but would be an upgrade over QB Tim Boyle for RB D'Andre Swift and TE T.J. Hockenson.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams (thigh) is active for today’s game vs. the Browns. He’d be a desperation play but does figure to steal some work from RB D’Andre Swift.

11:30am EST 11/21/21

Lions QB Jared Goff (oblique) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Browns. QB Tim Boyle gets his 1st career start. We’re not expecting it to go well.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams (thigh) is expected to play vs. the Browns today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Williams averaged 10.1 carries and 2.6 targets over the season's first 7 games. He'd be a desperation fantasy play but is certainly bad news for RB D'Andre Swift's touch projection.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams (thigh) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns. He’s not a fantasy option, but if he returns he’d likely steal a handful of touches from RB D’Andre Swift.

Lions QB Tim Boyle is expected to start Sunday's game vs. the Browns, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. QB Jared Goff didn't practice all week with his oblique injury. Boyle has 4 regular-season pass attempts to his name. He went undrafted back in 2018 after completing 55.5% of his passes, averaging 5.6 yards per attempt and tossing 12 TDs vs. 26 INTs across 4 college seasons (3 at UConn, 1 at Eastern Kentucky). There's a good chance this is a total disaster for the Lions offense. Downgrade RB D'Andre Swift and TE T.J. Hockenson.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams (thigh) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. That presumably puts him on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Browns. Williams isn't a viable fantasy option, but his return would siphon a few touches from RB D'Andre Swift.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams (thigh) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Steelers. RB D’Andre Swift busted with Williams out for Detroit’s last game. But Williams’ absence is still a boost to Swift’s Week 10 fantasy value.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams (thigh) did not practice on Wednesday. He missed Week 8 with this injury and is now in danger of missing Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. Williams' absence would be a boost for RB D'Andre Swift.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams (thigh) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Eagles. It’s a surprise after he’d been playing through questionable tags most of the season. Williams’ absence is a significant boost to RB D’Andre Swift’s Week 8 fantasy value.

Lions RBs D'Andre Swift (groin) and Jamaal Williams (hip) are active for today’s game vs. the Vikings. We’re expecting both guys to be available to play their usual roles.

Lions RBs D'Andre Swift (groin) and Jamaal Williams (hip) were limited in practice all week and are listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. This has been the case with Swift all season, so there's no reason to worry there. It's a new injury for Williams, but we've heard nothing to suggest that it's a real concern. We'll get Detroit's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.
