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.

Chicago Bears running back Roschon Johnson wrapped up his rookie season in limited fashion, rushing five times for 20 yards in the team's 17-9 loss to the Packers in Week 18. The 2023 fourth-round pick ended his first season with 332 rushing yards on over four yards per attempt along with 209 receiving yards. Despite having to fight for opportunities with veterans Khalil Herbert and D'Onta Foreman, Johnson showed what he can do in the passing game this year and looks to be a weapon for this team to utilize going forward. While he never gained a consistent enough role to be valuable to fantasy managers, Johnson should have more opportunity next year if the team doesn't make a big move for a running back. Like most rookie running backs, he was never completely unleashed and will look to take a step forward in a bigger role in 2024.
