Shark Bites

Lions interim HC Darrell Bevell said Friday that RB D'Andre Swift will "have a smaller, game-plan specific role" if he plays against the Bears this weekend. Swift was still in the concussion protocol and limited in practice on Wednesday -- then missed Thursday and Friday's practices with an illness. He also didn't practice much the previous 2 weeks. We don't know exactly how limited Swift will be if he ends up active, but this obviously makes him tough to trust in fantasy lineups. RBs Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson are seemingly in for bigger role on Sunday, although neither is a great fantasy play vs. Chicago's 4th-ranked RB defense.

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.

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.
