Lions RB D'Andre Swift (illness) missed practice Thursday after taking limited reps Wednesday. Swift has made it through the league's concussion protocol but Adrian Peterson said that the rookie hasn't been himself since the concussion. We should know more on Friday, but for now we've removed Swift from the rankings. If he does play, he will be ranked somewhere in the 10-20 range.
The Lions, of course, do not have D’Andre Swift due to injury, so AP is back in the lead, but the Lions won’t give up just yet on Johnson. If there’s a week for these backs to shine, it’s this week against a porous run defense of the Panthers. Peterson looks like a solid RB2 this week and Johnson could be considered in your flex spot.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (concussion, out) missed practice again Friday and is out for Week 11. With Swift out, the Lions likely lean on Adrian Peterson as a runner and Kerryon Johnson as a change-of-pace back. Peterson has out-carried Johnson 97-to-30 this year, but only holds an 11-to-8 advantage in receptions, so Johnson should be involved as a pass-catcher.
