Shark Bites

Eagles RB D’Andre Swift (illness) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Giants. RBs Kenneth Gainwell, Boston Scott, and Rashaad Penny are all active. We’re expecting Gainwell to lead the way – but that might depend on how motivated the Eagles are to win this one.

Recent Shark Bites

Eagles RB D'Andre Swift is not expected to play today against the Giants because of illness, according to multiple reports. That would leave the backfield to Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott -- maybe Rashaad Penny. Over-trusting any remaining member of the Philly backfield will be risky in a game the Eagles likely figure won't matter. (They need Washington to beat Dallas to have a shot at improving their playoff position.) But there's also upside if you're selecting a DFS RB.

Eagles RB D’Andre Swift (illness) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. Swift should be fine come Sunday, but you’ll need to make sure he’s active around 3 pm ET.

Eagles RB D’Andre Swift put forth respectable production in Week 17 vs. the Cardinals, ending the game with 13 carries for 61 yards. Even with one more regular season game, he’s already set career highs in carries (229) and scrimmage yards (1,263). However, Swift is also pacing for a career-low 52 targets. He’s set to hit the free agent market in 2024 at 25 years old. Staying with the Eagles’ high-powered offense would likely be good for his rushing volume but would also likely limit his target outlook. Beware of valuing Swift too highly in dynasty at the moment, and don't be afraid to consider "sell" opportunities.

Eagles RB D’Andre Swift is continuing to trend upward. He tallied 20 carries for 92 yards and a TD in Monday night’s victory vs. the Giants. While he saw no work in the passing game for the second time this season, Swift’s usage is ramping up much closer to his season average of 16.9 touches per game. He’d seen a pair of flop games between Week 13-14 in which he received 21 touches combined, but those were blowout losses in which the Eagles’ offense operated within heavily negative game scripts. The team’s last two contests have produced much closer outcomes and have rewarded Swift as a result. This will be important to remember ahead of their Week 17 matchup vs. the Cardinals. Arizona ranks as the second-best RB matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed and 31st in run defense DVOA in 2023. This is the kind of spot where Swift should be able to post borderline RB1 numbers for managers in fantasy championships. Don’t hesitate to fire him up in your lineup.

Eagles RB D’Andre Swift had a nice bounce-back game in Week 15 vs. the Seahawks, finishing with 18 carries for 74 rushing yards with 2 catches for 1 yard as a pass-catcher. The veteran had only handled 18 combined touches in the past two weeks due to negative game scripts against the 49ers and Cowboys. The closer nature of Monday night’s game helped Swift see more involvement and should be encouraging for fantasy managers looking ahead. Week 16’s matchup against a Giants defense that allows the fourth-most rushing yards per game (131.6) this season sets up as a good spot for Swift to build upon this success and be treated as a strong RB2 candidate in lineups.
