The Lions took their time in allowing D'Andre Swift to handle a starter's workload in 2020, but when they did, the rookie did not disappoint. In spite of three missed games and a snap rate below 50 percent in the games he played in, Swift was able to finish as a top-20 Fantasy RB in his first year in the league. Detroit moved on from both Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson this offseason and made no effort to replace them in the NFL Draft, so their 2020 second-round selection appears to be poised for a much larger workload in Year 2.
Swift is a clear top-12 running back for Dynasty startup draft purposes, but just how high should he be ranked at the position in season-long leagues while playing in Detroit's anemic offense?
