Swift has a three-down skillset and is the odds-on favorite to lead the Lions’ backfield in touches after Detroit used an early second-round pick to get him. Johnson averaged 3.6 YPC last year after averaging 5.4 YPC as a rookie, and his receptions dropped from 3.2 per game to 1.3 per game. This regime did draft Johnson, so they are unlikely to completely give up on him in 2020, so expect a committee with Swift as the lead back for now. The longer Swift is out, the better the chances Johnson has a bigger role, at least early in the season.
