WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

The 49ers are signing Erik Swoope.

Swoope showed big-play flashes during his time with the Colts (in 2016 in particular), but he was out of the league last year and finally gets another opportunity in San Francisco. The Niners have been bolstering the tight end group this summer, and Swoope will look to win a roster spot and help complement All-Pro George Kittle this season.

The Raiders waived Erik Swoope.

This is a slight surprise considering the wide-open tight end depth chart for Oakland, but the move created roster space for the Raiders to make another signing. Swoope shouldn’t have much trouble finding a new team.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

The Raiders signed Erik Swoope, according to Adam Schefter.

Swoope, who caught eight passes in seven games with the Colts last season, should actually have a nice opportunity to climb the depth chart in Oakland, but there might not be enough looks at the position to become a fantasy contributor. For now, consider Swoope one of a handful of potential receiving options at tight end for Jon Gruden's offense.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

The Colts waived Erik Swoope.

There's certainly a chance Swoope returns to the Colts very soon, but for now, he'll hit waivers. For fantasy purposes, Swoope does not need to be owned.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

Erik Swoope held without a catch in win over the Texans.

Swoope was targeted once, but Eric Ebron was the only tight end to catch a pass on Sunday. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere for Week 15.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

Erik Swoope catches one pass in Week 13.

Swoope gained four yards on his lone reception against the Jags. Swoope has touchdown potential every week, but he's obviously difficult to trust in fantasy lineups.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

Erik Swoope (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday.

Swoope did not practice at all this week; and now Jack Doyle is expected to return for the Colts, so Swoope is off the fantasy radar for now.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

Erik Swoope scores again in Week 7.

Swoope caught a 17-yard pass from Andrew Luck on his lone reception of the Bills. The score makes it three straight weeks with a touchdown for Swoope, who has the trust of his quarterback in the red zone. However, it's difficult to trust Swoope in fantasy lineups in standard-sized leagues because of his touchdown dependency.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

Erik Swoope (knee) is active for Week 7.

Swoope was listed as questionable after he was limited in practice during the week. He's not a highly-recommended fantasy option against the Bills.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

Erik Swoope (knee) is questionable for Sunday.

Swoope was limited in practice this week and is probably headed toward a game-time decision. He's only a fantasy option in very deep leagues even if he is active, though. Swoope's status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

Erik Swoope scores against the Jets.

Swoope caught a two-yard touchdown pass on his lone reception in the Week 6 loss. On the touchdown, Swoope snuck out to the back of the end zone and made a nice mid-air adjustment to secure the catch. Swoope isn't a recommended fantasy option, but he has a touchdown in two straight weeks.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

Erik Swoope scores against the Patriots.

Swoope caught a red-zone touchdown when he got inside position on Patriots safety Devin McCourty, who did not have a good night in coverage. Swoope, who was called up from the practice squad for this game, also had a 26-yard reception that looked like a touchdown at the end of the game, but his knee was down at the half-yard-line. On the next play, the Colts ran a play designed for Eric Ebron, who was wide open after a play-action fake, so that was bad luck for Swoope. Overall, Swoope had three receptions for 44 yards and a touchdown. He's not an advisable fantasy option at the moment.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

The Colts have promoted Erik Swoope to the practice squad.

Swoope has been moving between waivers, the practice squad, and the active roster for Indy, and it looks like he'll be back up and active tomorrow night against the Patriots. Swoope is not a highly-recommended fantasy option for Week 5.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

The Colts waived Erik Swoope.

If Swoope doesn't land with another team, he might end up back on Indy's practice squad. Swoope is currently off the fantasy radar.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

Erik Swoope catches one pass in Week 3.

Swoope, who was just promoted from the practice squad, gained seven yards on his lone reception. He's not a fantasy option at the moment.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

The Colts elevated Erik Swoope to the 53-man roster.

Jack Doyle is out tomorrow with a hip injury, so Swoope will help fill in during his absence. Swoope has shown a solid connection with Andrew Luck in the past, but he's more of a real-life asset than a fantasy asset for Week 3.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

The Colts signed Erik Swoope to the practice squad.

Swoope was just released yesterday, but the Colts quickly brought him back to the practice squad. He’ll develop there, and the Colts know they can count on him on game days if they promote him to the 53-man roster.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

The Colts waived Erik Swoope.

Swoope was in a crowded depth chart with the Colts, so he didn't have much fantasy value. The 26-year-old should receive interest from other teams relatively soon.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

Erik Swoope catches one pass in Week 1 defeat.

It went for 13 yards. Swoope isn't a fantasy option behind Jack Doyle and Eric Ebron, but he should get some playing time in Frank Reich's versatile offense.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

The Colts placed TE Erik Swoope on IR.

Swoope had a knee scope in mid-August and apparently must've had some type of issue and/or recovery did not go as well as expected. It's possible Swoope misses the entire season, but the Colts can bring him back as one of their designated to return guys after eight weeks. Jack Doyle is the clear top tight end in Indy, but his upside won't be great until Andrew Luck is back (which could be Week 1, but is probably unlikely at this point).

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

Colts TE Erik Swoope had a knee scope.

Head coach Chuck Pagano said Swoop is week-to-week. This puts him in jeopardy for the season opener on September 10. Jack Doyle would get an upgrade if Swoope were to miss any weeks during the regular season.

Erik Swoope catches one pass for 45 yards against Oakland.

Two straight weeks for Swoope with a catch of over 25 yards, but he's not a reliable fantasy option.

Erik Swoope | 49ers TE

Erik Swoope caught three passes for 50 yards and a 27-yard touchdown against the Vikings.

Swoope got wide open on a wheel route and Luck hit him in stride in the endzone for his TD. Despite the good game, Swoope is not on the fantasy radar.
