Lions new assistant HC/RBs coach Duce Staley talked up RB D'Andre Swift on Wednesday. "When I look at D'Andre, I do think he's a three-down back and like I said, he has some special traits I can't wait to get my hands on, so I'm excited about that," Staley said. "You can get 18 carries and seven touches as far as receptions and you have 25 touches, which is what you want from your star back." It's the time of the year when coaches toss around touch projections for the coming season, so don't go expecting 25 touches per game from Swift. But it's clear the new coaching staff is high on the Georgia product, despite not being around when he was drafted. There's RB1 upside here if Swift gets feature-back usage.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (illness) is active for today’s game against the Packers. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. It’s still uncertain how big a role he’ll be returning to, though, leaving Swift as a risk/reward RB2.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Lions RB D'Andre Swift (illness) is expected to play against the Packers today. That was the expectation after the rookie practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. The question is how big a role Swift will play in his 1st action since Week 10. Consider him a risk/reward RB2 in a plus matchup vs. Green Bay's 27th-ranked RB defense.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (illness) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Packers. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, so we're expecting the rookie to play. But it's strange that he's been dealing with this "illness" for over a week now -- after clearing the concussion protocol. Swift had a breakout game last time we saw him, but it's unclear how big a role he'll be returning to. We'll see if we hear anything about that on Sunday morning.

Injury Predictor

D’Andre Swift is going to get there in a hurry. He has excellent burst and top-end speed. Swift does most of his damage taking the ball around the end, but can also be valid between the tackles. He is a complete back with great vision and solid route runner. Swift is excellent in pass protection. He just needs to hang onto the ball and will battle Kerryon Johnson for volume, but this should be Swift's backfield for a significant portion of it.

Dynasty Spin: Swift is typically the third to fifth running back off the board in rookie drafts. He should be considered anywhere between a late third to an early fourth-rounder in start-ups.
