Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift rushed 14 times for 116 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also added three receptions for seven yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Swift easily had his best day as a pro. It was the first time he had double-digit rushes, and just the second time he had more than 10 or more total touches. He'll look to build on this huge performance in Week 7 against the defensively-challenged Atlanta Falcons back in Georgia, where he starred in college for the SEC's Bulldogs.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift caught four passes for 30 yards and one touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4. He also rushed for 22 yards on four carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Swift has received a handful of touches in each game this season and should be move involved in the offense as the season goes on. Fantasy players probably can keep him on the bench for now, but he should have more value in the second half of the season.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift caught one of his two targets for 19 yards but did not record a single rush attempt in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Swift didn't exactly light it up as a runner in his first two games, although three carries in Week 1 and five carries in Week 2 doesn't really give anyone - including the coaching staff - enough of a sample size to make a strong determination one way or the other. Given the draft capital it took to acquire him and his college resume, fantasy owners should consider buying low in hopes his role grows more as the season progresses. However, he needs to be on fantasy benches in Week 4 versus the New Orleans Saints.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift rushed five times for just 12 yards and he added five grabs for 60 yards on his five targets in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Swift has shown decent hands out of the backfield, and he is a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option in PPR formats. Next up is a road trip to meet the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift rushed three times for eight yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears and he added three catches for 15 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Swift looked to be in line for a sizeable role, but that all changed when the team inked Adrian Peterson last week. The veteran burst onto the scene in Motown with 93 rushing yards, so fantasy owners of Swift in standard leagues will have to bide their time. He remains a tremendous option in long-term keeper formats.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Swift is probably behind Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson on the depth chart since he missed most of training camp because of his injury. He probably will see a few touches this week against the Chicago Bears but can be kept on the bench.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (hip) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: Swift's fantasy viability for Week 1 already took a hit with the signing of veteran RB Adrian Peterson. Fantasy managers should leave the rookie on the bench for Week 1 while waiting to see how things play out.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (leg) is participating in practice Wednesday, Sept. 9.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (leg) is expected to be limited in practice Monday, Aug. 31.
