Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift (ankle) was able to practice in full on Thursday after he was listed as limited for Wednesday's session with the team. Swift will be available as the Eagles' lead running back for this weekend's clash against the San Francisco 49ers. The 24-year-old has served as Philly's top option in the backfield since the season opener and has been a top-10 fantasy back in half-PPR scoring for an Eagles team with the best record in the league. Swift needs to be locked into starting fantasy lineups in Week 13 as an RB2, but temper expectations against one of the toughest defenses to run against in the league. He enters Week 13 action with 161 carries for 770 yards and four touchdowns, catching 34 of 39 targets for an extra 201 yards and a score through the air.

Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift (ankle) is on the Week 13 injury report and was limited in the team's first practice of the week on Wednesday. Swift was also managing an ankle injury last week before suiting up and playing 63 percent of the offensive snaps on his way to 15 touches and 84 scrimmage yards in the overtime win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 12. Unless the 24-year-old suffers a setback with his ankle later this week in practice, he should be fine to play in this weekend's big clash against the San Francisco 49ers. Kenneth Gainwell still mixes in here and there in this backfield, but it's been Swift's primary gig since Week 1 basically. He'll have a lower ceiling and floor in a tough matchup on Sunday as more of a low-end RB2 in fantasy.

Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift took 14 carries for 80 yards and caught his lone target for a four-yard gain during the team's 37-34 overtime win over the Buffalo Bills. The 24-year-old did not get much going in the first half and lost some reps to both Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell early. However, once Gainwell miscommunicated with Jalen Hurts on a handoff that resulted in a turnover, Swift saw the majority of reps for the remainder of the game. The only genuine concern for the former Detroit Lion was his lack of pass-game involvement. Gainwell saw more snaps in obvious passing downs. Whether this remains the same moving forward remains to be seen, but there is no denying that when the Eagles want to run the ball, it will go to Swift nine times out of 10. Swift will remain an RB2 next week, even against a tough San Francisco run defense.

Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift will take on the Buffalo Bills in Week 12. The 24-year-old got back on track for fantasy purposes last week after tallying 107 yards and a score against a stiff Kansas City run defense. Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott accounted for just a few carries, cementing the fact that this is Swift's backfield. Buffalo is ranked middle of the pack in fantasy points per game allowed to the running back position this season but has struggled to stop receiving backs in particular. The Bills have given up the second-most receiving yards to the position, and Swift has tallied over 60 passing yards in the past two weeks. With tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) out indefinitely, the former Detroit Lion should see a solid target share and could capitalize this week against the Bills defense. Consider Swift a fringe RB1 in Week 12.
Nov 24, 2023 8:48 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift (ankle) was listed as limited on Wednesday's estimated injury report after the team held a walkthrough practice. The Eagles are taking it easy early in Week 12 preparations after just beating the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night in a Super Bowl rematch. Swift handled 12 carries for 76 yards and his fourth rushing score of the year in Week 11. His injury is worth watching, but unless he suffers a setback, he should be good for showdown on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. The 24-year-old is the RB11 through 11 weeks as Philly's lead back, so he's a must-start if he's active. Kenneth Gainwell would see more work if Swift is limited at all for any reason this weekend.

Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift took 12 carries for 76 yards and a touchdown and added three receptions on as many targets for 31 yards during the team's 21-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. It was a sloppy, rain-soaked affair that gave both offenses issues, but the run game for Philadelphia and Kansas City excelled on Monday night. Swift found his way into the end zone early, and while his 12 carries were the lowest he has recorded since Week 6, the 24-year-old cleared 70 rushing yards for the first time since Week 5. Had Swift not been able to produce as well as he did, the Eagles' offense would have been in shambles due to a heavy Kansas City pass rush and the terrible weather. Fantasy managers can look forward to firing up Swift again next week against a Buffalo defense that has struggled to stop the run this season. Consider the Georgia alum a back-end RB1 in Week 12.

Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift will travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs in Week 11. The 24-year-old has hit a bit of a wall over the past month, averaging just 3.1 yards per carry and scoring just one rushing touchdown. His pass game involvement over the past three weeks has also been minimal, capping his fantasy scoring ceiling. Now, Swift has to travel to Kansas City to take on a Chiefs defense that allows the 12th-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs, and they have yielded only three rushing touchdowns. However, they are allowing an 80% completion rate to running backs, so Philadelphia may exploit that weakness with tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) out for the foreseeable future. Overall, Swift should be considered an RB2 in Week 11, but fantasy managers should manage expectations in another tough matchup for the former Detroit Lion.
Nov 17, 2023 3:42 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift took 18 carries for 43 yards and caught both of his targets for an additional 31 yards during the team's 28-23 win over the Dallas Cowboys. The 24-year-old was given plenty of work. His 18 carries was the second-highest total of the season, but the Dallas defense stifled him on nearly every run, holding him to just 2.4 yards per carry. Kenneth Gainwell stole another touchdown from the former Detroit Lion this week. Better days are ahead for Swift, but he will face a stiff Kansas City defense in Week 11 once the Eagles return from their Week 10 bye. He will be considered a solid RB2 in the rematch of last season's Super Bowl.
Nov 5, 2023 8:56 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift will take on the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9. The 24-year-old found the end zone for the first time since Week 4 last week against the Washington Commanders but averaged just 3.6 yards per carry. Swift has not surpassed 65 rushing yards since Week 6 and has just three targets in each of the past two games. Philadelphia has had plenty of success the past two weeks passing the ball, leading to less involvement for Swift overall. Now, the former Detroit Lion will face a Dallas defense that allows the 11th-fewest fantasy points per game to the running back position and has allowed the fifth-fewest rushing yards. There have been plenty of blowouts against bad teams for the Cowboys this season, helping boost their numbers against the run, but Swift still has his ceiling capped this week unless he can find the end zone. Consider the Eagles starting back a mid to low-range RB2 in Week 9.
Nov 3, 2023 8:07 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift took 16 carries for 57 yards and a touchdown, adding two receptions for seven yards during the team's 38-31 win over the Washington Commanders. Washington held the 24-year-old in check for the majority of the contest, keeping Swift under four yards per carry for just the third time all season. However, on a terrific trick play late in the game, the former Detroit Lion took a pitch out of the "Brotherly Shove" formation and found his way into the end zone. This was not the best fantasy performance for the Eagles starting running back, but the touchdown will undoubtedly help keep him ranked as a clear RB2 moving forward. He will face a stiff Dallas defense next week in the divisional showdown.
Oct 29, 2023 5:21 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift will go on the road to take on the Washington Commanders in Week 8. The 24-year-old has finished as the RB13 or better in all but two games this season and got back on track last week on the ground compared to a horrible outing against the Jets in Week 7. However, despite 15 carries, Swift failed to finish in the top 24 against the Dolphins. He is in a bounce-back spot against Washington, who have allowed the 13th-most rushing yards to the position and struggled to keep him in check back in Week 4. Swift was the RB11 overall that week, and it was the last game he was able to find the end zone. Kenneth Gainwell stole a goal line touchdown from the former Detroit Lion last week, so better days should be ahead. Consider Swift a top-tier RB2 in Week 8.
Oct 27, 2023 8:23 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift took 15 carries for 62 yards and caught all three of his targets for 13 yards during the team's 31-17 win over the Miami Dolphins. The 24-year-old was again the clear leader in the backfield, out-touching backup Kenneth Gainwell 18 to eight, but for the third week in a row, he failed to find the end zone as a runner. It was a bounce-back performance on the ground compared to Swift's Week outing against the New York Jets, where he took 10 carries for just 18 yards, but failing to score will see him finish as a low-end RB2 by the end of Week 7. Gainwell took a goal line touchdown away this week. Swift will have a rematch against the Washington Commanders in Week 8. The former Lion went for 56 yards on 14 carries and scored a touchdown in their last meeting. Swift will be considered a solid RB2 in that matchup.
Oct 23, 2023 9:25 AM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift will take on the Miami Dolphins on Sunday night. The 24-year-old had a fine fantasy outing despite rushing for just 18 yards on 10 carries last week against the New York Jets due to how involved he was in the passing game. Swift saw his highest target share of the season, catching eight of 10 targets for 40 yards and a score. While the Eagles' starting back has been amazing as a runner this year, it was nice to see that he can still get it done as a receiver if the run game is not working. Miami allows the 13th-most fantasy points per game to the running back position and an average of 4.2 yards per carry, so the matchup is solid in what should be a shootout. Consider Swift a top-tier RB2 with top-12 upside.
Oct 20, 2023 7:02 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift took 10 carries for 18 yards and caught eight of 10 targets for 40 yards and a score during the team's 14-20 loss to the New York Jets. After a month of solid performances on the ground, the 24-year-old was held to just 1.8 yards per carry by the Jets' dominant defense. However, Swift salvaged his fantasy performance through the air and proved to fantasy managers that he could be an asset even if he were bottled up on the ground. The run game for Philadelphia could not get going Sunday, no matter who was toting the rock, and it led to their first loss of the season. Swift will take on the Miami Dolphins next week with the chance at a big performance in what should be a high-scoring affair.
Oct 15, 2023 8:04 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift will take on the Jets in New York this Sunday. Since Week 2, the 24-year-old is the RB5 overall, averages 5.7 yards per carry, and 17.4 fantasy points per game. Swift has done all of that against four tough defenses that are typically stopping fantasy running backs so far this year. Now, the former Detroit Lion faces a New York Jets defense that allows the 11th-most fantasy points per game to the position. The Jets have also let up the sixth-most rushing yards and the third-most receiving yards. In short, they are struggling to stop opposing running backs from dominating. Swift has dominated the carry count since Week 2 and will continue to do so against New York. Consider him a top-tier RB2 in Week 6.
Oct 13, 2023 8:34 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift took 17 carries for 70 yards and caught all six of his targets for an additional 38 yards during the team's 23-14 win over the Los Angeles Rams. This is the third game over the past four that the 24-year-old has tallied more than 100 scrimmage yards. Swift out-touched fellow back Kenneth Gainwell, 23 to eight, further cementing his status as the Eagles' top back. The fourth-year back now gets a three-game stretch to take advantage of, with the New York Jets, Miami, and Washington all struggling to stop the run. After an incredibly consistent month of fantasy production, Swift will be in the top 12 conversation for the foreseeable future and is a back-end RB1 against the Jets next week.
Oct 8, 2023 8:34 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift will travel to Los Angeles to take on the Rams in Week 5. After two massive performances where the 24-year-old went over 125 yards on the ground, Swift came back to earth last week against the Washington Commanders. He posted 56 yards on 14 carries but managed to find the end zone and caught a season-high four passes. This week's matchup against the Rams is rough but not one that should scare fantasy managers into looking for a better option. Los Angeles ranks 13th in fantasy points allowed to the running back position and are particularly stingy against pass-catching backs. Swift may have his ceiling capped in Week 5, but he is a surefire RB2 no matter the matchup due to his explosive nature.
Oct 5, 2023 8:33 AM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift took 14 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown, adding four receptions on as many targets for 23 yards during the team's 34-31 overtime victory over the Washington Commanders. The 24-year-old returned to earth after averaging 6.9 yards per carry and gaining over 125 yards on the ground the past two weeks, but he found the end zone and gave fantasy managers another solid performance. Swift against out-touched teammate Kenneth Gainwell 18 to six, cementing his status as the clear top back in Philadelphia. Next week's matchup against the Los Angeles Rams is no walk in the park, but the former Detroit Lion will be a solid RB2 in Week 5.
Oct 1, 2023 8:30 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift will face the division-rival Washington Commanders in Week 4 on Sunday. The 24-year-old has put up 319 scrimmage yards over the past two weeks and scored one touchdown. On paper, Tampa Bay was a tough matchup for Swift last week, but he overcame it and averaged over eight yards per carry. This week's matchup against Washington is similar. However, they just allowed James Cook of Buffalo to over 100 total yards and average 6.5 yards per carry. The Eagles' starting back is becoming matchup-proof and should be treated as a top-tier RB2 in Week 4.
Sep 29, 2023 8:05 PM EST
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift took 16 carries for 130 yards and added one reception for eight yards during the team's 25-11 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 24-year-old gained over 100 yards on the ground for the second week in a row. He averaged 8.1 yards per carry, led the team in total carries, and was clearly the best back on the field for the Eagles. Kenneth Gainwell ended the night with 14 carries but saw eight of those on the game's final drive, where Philadelphia was trying to drain the clock. Swift will always mix in with another back, his injury history dictates that he is kept fresh, but he is the clear top back for the Eagles moving forward and has top-12 upside every week. The Georgia alum will be a must-start against the Washington Commanders next week.
