Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift took 10 carries for 34 yards and added four receptions on as many targets for 32 yards during the team's 9-32 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 24-year-old started the game with a few solid runs, but the Eagles again got away from the run game and went with a heavy passing attack that resulted in little to no points scored. Swift was a victim of play calling toward the end of the season and now enters the offseason as a free agent. It would not be a shock to see Philadelphia prioritize resigning the former Detroit Lion, as he was a big part of their success at the start of the year.

Los Angeles Rams running back Kyren Williams (hand) had successful surgery on Tuesday to fix a broken bone in his hand, according to head coach Sean McVay. Williams broke a bone in his hand in Sunday night's one-point wild-card loss to the Detroit Lions, but he'll have plenty of time to heal up before the start of the 2024 regular season. The 23-year-old moved into a starting role in LA's backfield in Week 2 of the 2023 campaign after the Rams traded Cam Akers away. Williams had a career year, carrying the ball 228 times for 1,144 yards and 12 touchdowns while also logging 32 receptions (48 targets) for 206 yards and three more scores in just 12 regular-season games played. He could have more competition for touches in 2024 in the Rams' backfield, but Williams should remain the lead back, which will give him at least high-end RB2 upside in fantasy drafts.
