Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift

  • D’Andre Swift has -115 odds to go over 50.5 rushing yards.
  • Swift is also projected to have 38.5 receiving yards (-115) and 4.5 catches (over, +100).
  • Dan Campbell has suggested in an interview that Swift is set for an expanded role Sunday

CHICAGO D’Andre Swift has been the lone bright spot for the 0-3 Detroit Lions so far this season. Arguably the Lions’ best playmaker, he has been a force to be reckoned on both the rushing and receiving sides of the ball.

Through 3 games, Swift has racked up 33 carries for 123 yards and a touchdown to go with 19 catches for 166 yards and one touchdown. In an interview earlier this week, Lions head coach Dan Campbell suggested that D’Andre Swift could be in for a larger workload moving forward.

Looking At D’Andre Swift Player Props

Oddsmakers at legal sportsbooks might not have accounted for this news, before setting Swift’s prop total lines this weekend. D’Andre Swift’s rushing yard prop is set at 50.5 yards while his receiving total is set at 38.5 yards.

While the Chicago Bears’ defense isn’t a cakewalk of a matchup by any means, Swift’s projected volume alone should be enough to push him over these totals.

NFL sportsbooks have posted the Lions as 3-point underdogs, which puts Swift in a positive game script to rack up multiple receptions.

At a mid-tier price of $6200 on DraftKings, D’Andre Swift makes for a fine tournament play that should not be highly owned by DFS players.

Neighboring running backs such as Ezekiel Elliott at $6500, and Chubba Hubbard at $5900, should leave Swift in the single digits of running back ownership. Swift is averaging 19.3 DraftKings points per game this season which is more than enough to get the job done at $6200.
