D'Andre Swift, RB (DET)

Salvages day with late TD

Swift carried 13 times for 24 yards and one touchdown while catching five of seven targets for 43 yards during Sunday's 34-11 loss to the Bengals.

Swift was bottled up for the majority of the game before salvaging his fantasy performance with a number of receptions and a rushing score at the tail end of the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Jamaal Williams saw a season-low five touches, but it's not clear if his reduced workload was at least partly a product of the hip injury Williams appeared on the injury report with this past week. Regardless, Swift has now seen 17.8 combined targets and carries per game through the first six weeks of the season and his usage only stands to benefit from any limitations Williams has going forward.
