2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Peterson and Frank Gore continue to lead the geriatric running back party or players who should have retired but who cannot seem to give up the game. At age 35, Peterson once again looks to be a thorn in the side of Derrius Guice truthers, despite the fact that he has barely averaged more than four yards per carry over the past two seasons.

If Peterson does make the squad and is not a training camp cut, look for him to share the first and second down role with Guice. Rookie Antonio Gibson from Memphis is a talented back who could also eat into the carry load of each player, and free agent signees Peyton Barber and J.D. McKissic are also in the mix.

It would not surprise us to see the Redskins backfield become a wasteland of no value and something that owners may want to avoid altogether.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Golladay misses practice Wednesday, Swift limited
Hip injury for Golladay
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 9, 11:06 am

Detroit Lions
Bevell said no practice for Kenny Golladay today. D'Andre Swift will practice today (Tim Twentyman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Rinse and repeat for Golladay who last played in Week 8. He'll need to show some signs of life in Thursday's practice in order to have a chance of playing this week. Swift has battled a concussion and illness in recent weeks. He last played in Week 10. Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson would handle the load against the Packers if Swift can't go.


Injury D'Andre Swift misses practice Thursday
Did practice Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 3, 2:27 pm

Detroit Lions
Adrian Peterson says D'Andre Swift hasn't been himself since suffering a brain injury, hasn't had the same energy level. Said it's been hard to watch. Swift did try to practice yesterday, was out today. (Kyle Meinke on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This doesn't sound good for Swift's chances of suiting up Sunday against the Bears. We could be looking at another committee of Peterson and Kerryon Johnson this week. There Bears are a negative matchup for running backs, allowing the 9th fewest fantasy points to the position.


Injury D'Andre Swift not expected to play
Concussion
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 26, 9:23 am

Detroit Lions
Lions' RB D’Andre Swift, listed as questionable for today due to a concussion, is unlikely to play against the Texans, per sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Lions will once again be without their two best playmakers in Kenny Golladay and Swift. Expect Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson to share the workload against the Texans today. Kerryon is the better option in PPR leagues. The Texans have given up the 2nd most fantasy points to running backs.


Injury Swift, Golladay, Amendola out for the Lions
Matthew Stafford is Questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 20, 3:00 pm

Detroit Lions
Lions Friday practice report with game designations: D’Andre Swift, Kenny Golladay & Danny Amendola are OUT. Matthew Stafford is QUESTIONABLE (Tim Twentyman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Lions will be rolling out their JV team against the Panthers this week. Expect Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson to handle most of the running back duties while Marvin Jones Marvin Hall and Quintez Cephus will be the top three wideouts. Stafford is expected to start despite his thumb injury but will have depleted weaponry to aid in his fantasy efforts.


Injury D'Andre Swift misses practice Thursday
Concussion
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 19, 3:47 pm

Detroit Lions
Lions' RB D'Andre Swift did not practice today due to a concussion, putting his availability for Sunday’s game in question. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This sounds like bad news for Swift's chances of playing on Sunday. He doesn't have enough practices left in the week for him to clear the protocol. We could be looking at Adrian Peterson as the starter with Kerryon Johnson and Jonathan Williams filling backup roles.


Increased role for D'Andre Swift?

By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 25, 9:36 am

Detroit Lions
From @NFLGameDay: #Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell has impressed in KC thus far as he prepares for his debut, while the #Lions will have an expanded role for RB D'Andre Swift. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Swift posted a 14-116-2 rushing line last week against the Jaguars so it wouldn't be a surprise if his role was increased this week. The Falcons have given up the 9th most fantasy points to running backs including 4 receiving touchdowns. We can expect Adrian Peterson to remain in the mix, but this is encouraging for Swift owners.
