    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) 'doesn't have to come off the field on third down,' according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Assuming he is fully recovered from knee surgery by the start of the year, Guice could be positioned for a heavy workload in the Washington backfield and RB2 production in 2019.

  • Posted: 2/18/2019 6:25pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is able to sprint in a straight line but is still not able to do any lateral movements at full speed yet. He also wants to build the strength in his legs over the next few months.

    Huddle Up: Guice was the team's starting running back last season but missed most of the season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He may have to share playing time with Adrian Peterson in 2019 if Peterson re-signs with the team. Guice can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy back if he receives most of the playing time.

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) has progressed to the point that he is able to sprint at full speed.

    Huddle Up: Unless he suffers an unexpected setback, Guice should be ready for the start of the 2019 season. He should have a chance to lead the backfield sooner rather than later, and RB2 production isn't out of the question.

  • Posted: 1/17/2019 7:10pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) posted a video of himself on social media running and doing other drills on the field.

    Huddle Up: Guice's rookie season was lost to a knee injury, but he should still have a chance to show he can lead the Washington backfield as early as next season. For now, he's a great stash candidate in keeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/12/2018 11:08pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) required three additional procedures following August surgery to repair his ACL due to an infection, all of which has slowed his rehab. Guice is no longer dealing with the infection, however, and still hopes to be ready for OTAs next summer.

    Huddle Up: Guice's recovery will be a story to watch as he looked the part of a quality NFL back prior to injury. He's obviously a nice stash candidate in keeper leagues as well.

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) will have surgery Friday, Aug. 17 to repair his torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to a source. Renowned Dr. James Andrews will perform the procedure.

    Huddle Up: Guice is done for the season with a torn ACL, so it will be up to a committee led by Rob Kelley, Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson to fill the void. Kapri Bibbs might also factor in at some point. Each have their strong points in fantasy, with Thompson useful in PPR leagues and as a flex play in standard. Kelley and Perine are more RB3-type options in standard leagues for now, and their value could fluctuate based upon touches.

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is out for the season, but head coach Jay Gruden said he is satisfied with the depth behind Guice.

    Huddle Up: Chris Thompson, Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley will compose a three-headed committee with Guice out of commission. Thompson is the preferred option in PPR leagues as a PPR RB2 or RB3, while Perine has a slight edge over Kelley as of now. He's more of a flex consideration.

  • Posted: 8/11/2018 11:44am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Aug. 11.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins may use a committee at running back with Rob Kelley, Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson all receiving snaps at the position. Thompson will be a valuable option in point-per-reception leagues and could be a flex option in standard leagues. Kelley and Perine could be No. 3 running backs in standard leagues depending on their touches.

    Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) tore his ACL against the New England Patriots on Thursday, Aug. 9, and will miss the rest of the season, according to ESPN's John Keim.

    Huddle Up: This is obviously a huge downer for one of the best rookie running backs in the 2018 draft class and a big blow to the Redskins' hopes for improving their rushing attack from a season ago. Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley will battle it out for the right to replace him as the early-down back, while Chris Thompson may be asked to resume a similar role to what he had in 2017 and will likely be the back to own for fantasy purposes in Washington.

  • Posted: 8/10/2018 8:21am ET

    Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) received an initial diagnosis of a sprained medial collateral ligament, according to a source. He'll have an MRI to confirm.

    Huddle Up: The injury could knock him out the rest of the preseason, but it sounds like he dodged a blow here. If the injury forces him to miss real time, Rob Kelley should re-enter the fold on first and second downs. Guice is a high-end RB3 right now with potential for more. Kelley is RB5 insurance.

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI Friday, Aug. 10, on the knee injury he suffered in the first preseason game.

    Huddle Up: Owners should know the extent of Guice's injury in the next few days. He appears to have a decent chance to win the starting job if the injury is not considered serious. He can be considered a No. 3 fantasy running back if he starts.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 5:29pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is being evaluated for a knee injury during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 9, against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Guice recorded six rushes for 19 yards before apparently suffering some sort of knee ailment. The severity of it, if any at all, could have big ramifications on the Redskins offense, so stay tuned if something arises here. Chris Thompson, Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine would be worth monitoring if Guice has to miss any time.

  • Posted: 7/31/2018 11:34am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice has already been praised by the coaching staff for his involvement in meetings and his aggression on field. Guice has been working to improve his pass protection and trying to solidify his technique so as not to overcommit on a block.

    Huddle Up: Plenty of teams were unsure of Guice heading into the draft; a lot of that uncertainty was off the field. So far he has shown the Redskins that they made the right choice. His PPR value is lessened due to the presence of Chris Thompson, but he's an RB2 candidate in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 7/26/2018 2:53pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice received most of the snaps with the first-team offense during practice Thursday, July 26.

    Huddle Up: Guice appears to be on track to be the main ball carrier for the Redskins this season, but owners should monitor the situation. He can be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he wins the starting job.

  • Posted: 7/18/2018 5:48pm ET

    Washington Redskins SS D.J. Swearinger predicted that RB Derrius Guice 'will be a Pro Bowler,' while adding, 'He will be one of the top three rushers in the league this year. For sure. No doubt in my mind about that.'

    Huddle Up: Swearinger will be entering his seventh year in the league and is one of the team's captains, so his glowing commentary does hold at least a little bit of water. The problem is it's still unknown what Guice's workload will be out of the gate, with the Redskins also having Chris Thompson, Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley. Guice is worth targeting regardless, though, for his incredibly high ceiling, being capable of notching RB1 production.

  • Posted: 6/7/2018 7:22pm ET

    Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said it has been 'exciting' to watch RB Derrius Guice catch the ball during OTAs.

    Huddle Up: Guice is already slated to handle the carries on early downs, and if he can add the occasional reception, it will only bolster his fantasy value. He looks like a solid RB2 at this point.

  • Posted: 5/10/2018 1:54pm ET

    Washington Redskins second-round draft choice RB Derrius Guice signed a four-year deal with the Redskins Thursday, May 10. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Guice has a good chance to be the starting running back for the Redskins during his rookie season. Owners should monitor his situation during training camp to see what his role will be for 2018. Guice can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues if he receives most of the carries.

  • Posted: 5/10/2018 9:59am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice has the fortune, as a rookie, of already knowing when he'll be on the field. Head coach Jay Gruden has made it clear that Guice will be in on first and second downs with RB Chris Thompson maintaining his passing-down role. Gruden added that Guice needs to improve his pass protection, but he also gave Guice credit for being a good pass- catcher.

    Huddle Up: Guice and Thompson have the ability to form quite the dynamic duo in the nation's capital. Guice's role is more suited for standard leagues since Thompson will be in on the majority of passing situations. In either format, Guice is an RB2 candidate as Washington's primary ball-carrier.

  • Posted: 5/8/2018 5:19pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson will continue to be the top option out of the backfield on passing downs despite the arrival of second-round RB Derrius Guice, according to ESPN's John Keim, who believes Jordan Reed's health will affect the degree to which Thompson needs to be leaned on in 2018.

    Huddle Up: In six games with Reed last season, Thompson was targeted 21 times and caught 18 passes with two touchdowns. In four games Thompson played without Reed, the former was targeted 31 times with 21 receptions and two touchdowns. Considering Reed's durability issues, Thompson figures to be busy at some point again this season. And as long as Thompson stays healthy, Guice's role in the passing game figures to be limited. Consider Guice a low-end RB2 at best and Thompson a high-end RB3/flex.

  • Posted: 4/30/2018 6:10am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice is expected to start for the team.

    Huddle Up: Guice will lose time on third downs and passing situations to Chris Thompson, but he'll be a high-end RB3 to target.

  • Posted: 4/29/2018 7:59pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice said he can't control all 'the rumors and stuff' that surrounded him leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft but will use the situation as motivation. 'Now I'm going to run angrier than ever,' Guice said. 'It's going to be tough for a lot of teams to bring me down.'

    Huddle Up: Guice will have a great opportunity to win the starting role in Washington. He'll be a RB3 with upside in redraft leagues and one of the top prospects in rookie drafts.

  • Posted: 4/27/2018 8:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice can do it all from the running back position, according to head coach Jay Gruden, and Gruden said he 'felt good' about selecting Guice after speaking to him and his agent.

    Huddle Up: Guice has a golden opportunity to grab the starting role in a Washington backfield desperate for a lead back. At the very least, he should be a flex play, and Guice should be one of the first players off the board in rookie drafts.

  • Posted: 4/27/2018 5:57pm ET

    The Washington Redskins selected Louisiana State RB Derrius Guice with the 59th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday, April 27.

    Huddle Up: Guice has a chance to compete for the starting running back job during training camp, so owners should monitor the situation. He can be at least a No. 3 fantasy running back in 2018 if he is a starter.
