Lions RBs combined for just 22 rushing yards on 12 carries in Saturday's loss at Carolina. RB D'Andre Swift rushed 4 times for 12 yards and caught just 1 of his 5 targets for 13 more. Jamaal Williams posted 7-11 rushing and caught both of his targets for 3 yards. The whole Detroit offense gets a positive matchup back home with Chicago in Week 17, but the RBs won't be exciting plays.
Eagles RB D'Andre Swift carried 14 times for 56 yards and a TD in Sunday's OT win over the Commanders. The 4.0 yards per carry marked a downturn vs. Swift's previous two games. But he beat Kenneth Gainwell by 10 carries and 4-2 in targets. Swift caught all four for 23 yards. He's looking like a weekly fantasy starter until something changes.
The Eagles will "ride the hot hand" at RB vs. the Bucs on Monday night, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. RB Kenneth Gainwell returns after missing Week 2, when RB D'Andre Swift went off for 175 rushing yards. We're expecting Swift to get the first crack at establishing that hot hand, but this remains a tough backfield to project.
RB D'Andre Swift dominated the Eagles backfield work and dominated the Vikings defense on Thursday night. With RB Kenneth Gainwell out with a rib injury, Swift handled 28 of 36 RB carries (78%), ripping off 175 yards and a score. Swift displayed impressive vision and explosiveness, running behind an offensive line that manhandled Minnesota's defense. He was a bit unlucky to not have an even bigger fantasy outing, twice getting tackled at the one-yard line. (QB Jalen Hurts scored on the next play both times.) Swift, of course, got just two touches behind a healthy Gainwell in Week 1. But it's tough to imagine the Eagles going away from him as their lead back after this performance.
Eagles HC Nick Siranni confirmed on Wednesday that RB D'Andre Swift's role will vary from game to game. “He’ll be in that role sometimes where he carries the load for the game, and he’ll be in the role sometimes like he was in last game," Sirianni said, to the chagrin of Swift's fantasy owners. "Again, we don’t ever want to come out with him only having those many touches. That’s just kind of how the flow went in the game. We had things called for him, but sometimes the ball doesn’t go for him in a certain way. That’s just the way the defense takes it away. Now, you can always get it to him by just handing it off to him, but I see him being able to play any role that he’s in because of the type of back and the skill set that he has.” Expect Swift to be more involved in Thursday night's game vs. the Vikings, especially if RB Kenneth Gainwell doesn't play.
Eagles RB D'Andre Swift "is still one of many in the running back room, not the main guy," The Athletic's Bo Wulf writes. It's confirmation of how we've been projecting the Philly backfield all along. Swift is the best fantasy bet of the bunch, but he figures to lose too much work to RB Kenneth Gainwell and others to be a real fantasy difference-maker. Check out our full projections for the Eagles backfield.
