D’Andre Swift receives wildly low rating from Madden 23

Earlier today, we passed along an article that referred to D’Andre Swift as the “most-overrated” and “least-effective” running back on the Detroit Lions.

In case you missed that, here is an excerpt from the said article that gives the rationale for the harsh analysis.

Swift is a quality running back who can definitely make special things happen with the ball in his hands. He’s proven to be one of the best receiving threats in the league at his position. But Swift’s reputation as a runner greatly exceeds what he’s actually done, especially between the tackles. While he’s a tremendous threat in space, Swift goes down on first contact too easily and lacks the decisive vision and powerful style to thrive as an every-down back. He was the least-effective runner on the team in 2021. – Jeff Risdon, Lions Wire

Well, today is not the best day for D’Andre Swift to search his name on the internet as Madden 23 is also refusing to give him any love.
