D'Andre Swift, running back

The Eagles have benefitted from D'Andre Swift's presence in his first season with the team. He has averaged four yards per carry or better in five of seven contests. The fourth-year running back has demonstrated his skills as a dual threat in the offense. He has three or more receptions during the last four games for Philly.

The Commanders' defense ranks 27th versus the run with 880 rushing yards allowed. Running backs have found some success this season against Washington.

Buffalo Bills running back James Cook collected 98 yards on 15 carries in Week 3. Swift finished with 56 yards and a touchdown on 14 touches during the Week 4 matchup between the division rivals. The New York Giants' Saquon Barkley had 21 carries for 77 yards in addition to three catches for 41 yards and a touchdown in Week 7.

The former Georgia Bulldog should be used aplenty for the Eagles against the Commanders. With Brown attracting so much attention from the opposition, guys like Swift have been able to take advantage. He should be able to build upon the success that he had in the first contest between the teams a few weeks prior.
