Lions' D'Andre Swift concentrating on being ready whenever his number is called

Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift spoke to the media about how he approaches the uncertain nature of his role and the team's backfield rotation.

What It Means:

Swift said that he focuses on being "consistent throughout practice and showing the coaches what I can do on a daily whenever my number is called there's no let off." He said the situation is "pretty much the same" as his time as a freshman in Georgia's backfield behind Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. Swift also praised Adrian Peterson saying "any knowledge I can get from him, I'm getting, so it's great to have him in my corner. I'm just looking at him every day as a big brother figure, it's amazing". Through four games in his NFL career, Swift has made his mark primarily in the passing game, catching 13 of 16 targets (81.3%) for 124 yards (9.5 per reception) and 1 touchdown. His 13 receptions are tied for 20th most in the league, despite missing a game due to the Lions' Week 5 bye, and he has graded out as Pro Football Focus' 11th best running back in pass protection. In Week 6, Swift will face a Jacksonville Jaguars defense ranked 25th against running backs in numberFire's advanced stats. Our models expect him to see 6.0 touches in Week 6.

Swift's Week 6 projection includes 15.0 rushing yards, 20.4 receiving yards, 0.28 touchdowns, and 6.4 FanDuel points.
