Lions QB Matt Stafford (rib) is now expected to start Sunday's game against the Titans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a sweet matchup vs. the league's 31st-ranked QB defense. But Stafford will be playing through what's been described as a very painful rib-cartilage injury, adding risk to his Week 15 profile. We'd only consider him in 2-QB and superflex leagues. Stafford's availability is obviously good news for RB D'Andre Swift, WR Marvin Jones and TE T.J. Hockenson.
Lions RB D'Andre Swift was held out of Thursday's practice and listed on the injury report with a concussion. It's the 1st we've heard of it. With Lions-Panthers less than 3 days away, Swift is looking very iffy. Fantasy owners should start lining up alternatives. The rookie's absence would leave Detroit's backfield to Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson
Lions D’Andre Swift (hip) isn’t listed on the final Week 1 injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. The rookie will make his NFL debut against the Bears this weekend — but it’s completely uncertain how much work he’ll get alongside Kerryon Johnson and Adrian Peterson.
Lions RB D'Andre Swift will be a limited participant in Monday's practice, HC Matt Patricia said. The rookie was sidelined for about a week-and-a-half with a leg injury. It looks like he'll be available for Week 1, but the missed time might mean a smaller role than expected out of the gate.
Lions RB D'Andre Swift continues to miss practice with a leg injury suffered on August 20. The rookie got off to a strong start in camp -- but the missed time lately figures to hurt his chances at a big early-season role. We'll see when Swift is able to get back on the field. He remains a fine pick if you can land him in Round 6 or later.
Lions RB D'Andre Swift was held out of Friday's practice after suffering an upper-leg injury on Thursday, according to the Detroit News' Justin Rogers. It's not believed to be a significant injury, but we'll see how much time Swift misses. The rookie is battling RB Kerryon Johnson for snaps and touches.
The Lions selected Georgia RB D’Andre Swift with the 35th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. Swift earned playing time as a true freshman in 2017 in a backfield that included NFLers Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, averaging a big 7.6 yards per carry on 81 attempts and actually leading the backfield with 17 catches. He took over as Georgia’s lead back the past 2 seasons, totaling 2,267 yards and 17 TDs on 6.3 yards per carry. He also posted receiving lines of 32-297-3 and 24-216-1. Swift is on the smaller side at 5’8 and 212 pounds, never reached 200 carries in a college season and dealt with leg, foot and shoulder injuries at Georgia. So he doesn’t project as a workhorse ball-carrier in the NFL. But Swift looks like a lead back with ready-made ability in the passing game. We’ve heard multiple scouts compare him to Dalvin Cook. In Detroit, Swift will duke it out with Kerryon Johnson for 2020 snaps. Considering the draft capital invested in Swift here, we’d consider him the favorite to lead the backfield in touches.
