Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) remained sidelined on Thursday. Expect him to be ruled out tomorrow for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks.
Lions RB D'Andre Swift is off this week's injury report for the 1st time since Week 1. He's been battling ankle and shoulder since the opener and been limited to 4.6 carries and 4.6 targets per game since returning in Week 8. It's certainly worth noting, though, that Swift was a full participant in practice both of the past 2 weeks. So we wouldn't take being removed from the injury report as a sign that his role is set to grow significantly. But we'll certainly be keeping an eye on it in Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars.
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.
