RISING

D.J. Swearinger, S, HOU


Swearinger usurped Ed Reed as one of Houston’s starting safeties back on Oct. 20, giving the rookie a chance to show why the Texans picked him in the second round of the most recent draft. As a player with both very good downhill skills and impressive man coverage abilities, Swearinger always had the look on paper of a player who ought to find himself around the ball often. If the last month is any indication, Swearinger will indeed find himself around the ball on a regular basis. Although he started slow with just 14 tackles in his first four starts, Swearinger has 28 tackles in the four starts since then. He’s a solid dynasty league target at the very least. As long as Swearinger avoids stupid penalties – he’s definitely a bit of a hothead – he should remain in the starting lineup going forward.
