This is why the Lions can't have nice things.

D'Andre Swift has a small package:

Lions interim coach Darrell Bevell said D'Andre Swift (illness) would have a "small package of plays" if active this week.
Swift was held out of Friday's practice for the second straight day. He's cleared the concussion protocol but the missed reps are going to make it hard for him to play this week. Even if active, Swift's role will likely be limited. Adrian Peterson is the favorite to lead Detroit's Week 13 backfield in touches.

Still more of a package than a majority of folks here. :-#

Just wanted to apologize for everyone for this post. I don't think he has played since.

Lions head coach Dan Campbell said he wants to use RB D'Andre Swift as a slot receiver.

After elaborating on how his Lions will "bite off" the kneecaps of their opponents -- among other medieval torture techniques -- the new Detroit head coach said he wants an offensive coordinator who will get Swift in space against linebackers, including using him in the slot. An excellent pass catcher, Swift excelled as the team's primary pass-catching back late in the 2020 season, catching 46 of 57 targets for 357 yards and two touchdowns. Swift's best game of the season was in Week 10 against Washington, when he exploited defensive mismatches and caught all five of his targets for 68 yards and a score. Swift would transform into a PPR force if the team commits to the shifty back in such a role.


coachspeak in January is likely worthless but here you go anyways

"Coach from team with Alvin Kamara wants to replicate Alvin Kamara"

I mean, I'd be buying Swift.

i like it. Williams is a solid RB and Swift dealt with some injuries last year. And DET has Goff so they will definitely need a solid running game to take the pressure off him. DET has a decent running game now.

And it was pretty cheap...Swift owners might not like it but i think Swift will be a stud anyway

Well, Swift might have the best OL in all of football right now.
