Detroit Lions RB Adrian Peterson is set to become a free agent at the end of the league year, but fellow RB D'Andre Swift has made it clear he would like to see the soon-to-be 36-year-old return to the team for another year. 'I definitely want him back,' Swift told CBS Sports while noting that he 'picked (Peterson's) brain' throughout his rookie year.
Huddle Up: Considering Detroit sounds like it wants to bite off kneecaps and set the physical tone with its running game each week under new head coach Dan Campbell, keeping around a physical presence like Peterson makes a lot of sense. Swift and Peterson are completely different backs, so fantasy owners shouldn't be overly concerned about the former's workload - he should be the focal point of the offense now with Matthew Stafford in Los Angeles. Swift could easily be a top-15 lock in fantasy drafts by the time they really get rolling this summer.
