D'Andre Swift is a prime breakout candidate for 2021. As a rookie, his emergence was slowed by an early injury that cost him most of his first training camp. He also suffered a concussion mid-season that caused him to miss time right when he looked like he was emerging as a difference-maker. Despite the speed bumps and some rookie mistakes, there were also plenty of flashes of brilliance mixed in. Swift showed a nose for the end zone, scoring 10 touchdowns on just 150 touches. He also showed major upside as a pass catcher, averaging 3.6 receptions per game (57-catch pace over 16 games), and could see his role in the passing game increase even more. With his pass-catching ability and nose for the end zone, Swift does not need to be an every down back to emerge as a fantasy star. We have seen Alvin Kamara perform as a dominant fantasy back without playing every down (61% of snaps last season) and that type of usage looks to be on tap for Swift. The bigger question is how much the lack of surrounding talent on this rebuilding roster impacts Swift's overall productivity and red zone opportunities. He enters 2021 as a high-end RB2 with legitimate RB1 upside, particularly in PPR leagues.
