Shark Bites

Lions RB D’Andre Swift (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Commanders. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but Swift reportedly played through this injury last week and is expected to play on Sunday. The ankle adds at least a little downside, though. Detroit will also be without C Frank Ragnow (groin, foot) and RG Halapoulivaati Vaitai (back), while LG Jonah Jackson (finger) is listed as questionable after missing practice on Thursday and Friday.

Recent Shark Bites

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.
