We break down the news that D’Andre Swift is dealing with an ankle/shoulder injury. What it means for Week 10 and beyond.

Friday update: After seeing just 10 snaps last week, Swift was unhappy with his usage. This week, he no longer has an injury designation and should be as healthy as he can be at this point. It’s somewhat risky, but Swift is a start this week.

Thursday update: D’Andre Swift got in a second straight limited practice on Thursday. He was on a reduced snap count last week, which is something to keep an eye out for even if he plays again this week. His ceiling is significantly lowered with limited work.

Week 10 of the NFL season is here. We will see the Detroit Lions taking on the Chicago Bears in an NFC North matchup. The Lions are seeing their season slip away as preseason expectations are not being met. They are falling short of the hype generated by Hard Knocks and have struggled with injuries all year. Running back D’Andre Swift can’t seem to stay healthy and is still dealing with an ankle and shoulder injury. He started Week 10 with a limited practice participation on Wednesday.

Fantasy football implications for Week 10

Swift has played in five games this season and has 34 carries for 247 yards and a touchdown. He has added 16 receptions on 21 targets for 144 yards and two touchdowns. If he is active, you will likely play him for his upside. Detroit has been slowly working him back into the game plan, and this matchup is too good to pass up.

If Swift sits, his backup Jamaal Williams will see another large workload. He has been a fantasy football stud this year, and that would likely continue if Swift is missing in action yet again.
