Lions' D'Andre Swift (concussion) ruled out for Week 12's clash with Texans on Thanksgiving
Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (concussion) has been officially ruled out for Week 12's game against the Houston Texans on Thanksgiving.
Swift has been downgraded from questionable to out and will not play against the Texans on Thanksgiving. His next chance to play will come against the Chicago Bears in Week 13. With Swift ruled out, the Lions will turn to Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson on Thanksgiving. With Swift ruled out for last week's loss to the Carolina Panthers, Peterson saw 7 carries to Johnson's 6, while Johnson out targeted Peterson 5 to 1. The duo will face a Texans' defense ranked 31st against running backs in numberFire's advanced stats.
The Lions are 3.0-point underdogs against the Houston Texans on Thanksgiving. Their implied team total of 24.25 points is the second-lowest team total on Thursday's two-game slate, according to numberFire's DFS Heat Map. Our models project Johnson for 10.4 FanDuel points and Peterson for 8.1 FanDuel points against the Texans.
