Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice erupted for 129 yards and two touchdowns on just 10 carries in Sunday's win over the Panthers, marking by far the best performance of his young career. There was promise coming into the matchup against a porous Panthers run defense, with the downside being that Guice might continue to suffer from the even backfield split he's been sharing with Adrian Peterson. As it turns out, neither Guice nor Peterson were held back by limited touches, combining for 228 yards and three touchdowns between the two of them. Whether Guice earned himself a larger share of the opportunity going forward remains to be seen, but it's hard to ignore what he's capable of at this point. He should be firmly entrenched in the fantasy conversation for the remainder of 2019.
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice posted 10 runs for 129 yards and two touchdowns in Week 13 against the Carolina Panthers and he added two catches for eight yards.
Fantasy Spin: Guice entered with only 74 rushing yards and no touchdowns in his entire career, but he showed that he is officially back from an ACL injury and ready to share the workload with Adrian Peterson. He'll look to keep it cooking in Week 14 at Green Bay.
Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice is the high-ceiling option in a frustrating backfield split with Adrian Peterson. Guice has taken a relative back seat to Peterson since returning from injury two weeks ago, but his youth and explosiveness make him the more likely candidate to go off despite a limited touch count. The Redskins have understandably been easing their second-year RB into action after long-term injuries cost him most of his first two seasons, but Week 13 represents a good time to take the training wheels off. Washington plays the Panthers, who are allowing just south of five yards per carry to RBs and have surrendered a league-high 16 rushing touchdowns to the position. Guice carries plenty of risk based on the evidence at hand regarding his workload, but he could be staring down flex value with an increase in opportunity.
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice led the team with 26 offensive snaps played Sunday, Nov. 24, against the Detroit Lions. Adrian Peterson played 20 offensive snaps while Wendell Smallwood played 16 snaps on offense.
Fantasy Spin: Guice rushed 10 times for just 32 yards and made one six-yard catch. He's averaging just 2.7 yards per carry including his abbreviated Week 1 outing. The overall quality of the Washington offense can take the bulk of the blame, but fantasy managers will want to see at least a few flashes from him to close the season before being able to trust him next year.
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice rushed 10 times for 32 yards and caught one pass for six yards in a 19-16 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 12.
Fantasy Spin: Guice and Adrian Peterson both logged 10 carries, but if Guice can stay healthy, his role in the offense will likely grow. He still has plenty of long-term potential, but splitting carries with Peterson and the struggles of quarterback Dwayne Haskins figure to limit his upside the rest of this season.
Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice continues to be eased into the offense, accounting for 11 touches and 38 total yards in Sunday's win over Detroit. He and Adrian Peterson appear set to continue cutting into each other's workloads, meaning touchdowns and big plays will likely be necessary in order for either player to return high-end fantasy value. Guice owners should maintain optimism that the second-year back will eventually transition into a more featured role as the season nears its end, but there is no evidence to suggest that's an imminent development. Continue to treat Guice as a fringe starting option in fantasy lineups for the time being.
Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice saw a relatively even split with Adrian Peterson out of the backfield in Week 11, and with Chris Thompson potentially returning this week, Guice's workload could suffer even more. The Redskins have nothing to play for, so it stands to reason that they will continue to ease Guice into a featured role as opposed to throwing him to the wolves. Expect Peterson to continue cutting into Guice's volume, with Thompson possibly reclaiming his role in the pass-catching department. Detroit has been exploitable on the ground, but Guice's sample of work is just too narrow to trust him on a limited touch count. Start him only as a flex if you must.
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice rushed seven times for 24 yards in Week 11 against the New York Jets and he added a 45-yard touchdown on his only reception.
Fantasy Spin: Guice was an exciting player coming out of LSU, but a serious injury wiped out his rookie season. This is essentially his rookie season, and he has missed time this season, too. If he could stay healthy, we might see him emerge as a fantasy stud, similar to what has happened to Minnesota's Dalvin Cook after injuries limited him early in his career.
Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice (knee) will return in Week 11 against the Jets after missing eight weeks with a torn meniscus in his knee. Previous head coach Jay Gruden sat Adrian Peterson in Week 1 with Guice as the lead back, but interim head coach Bill Callahan has built the offense around Peterson since he took over. Callahan said he plans to use both running backs, and their usage will depend on game situations. Weve got a pretty good rotational system for that, Callahan said. We feel pretty confident [Guice will] see quite a bit of action this weekend. Chris Thompson (toe) remains week-to-week and is doubtful for this weekend, so it should be easier to split the load between Peterson and Guice. Still, both Peterson and Guice will cannibalize each other unless the 'Skins go with the hot hand. Guice has more long-term upside, but Peterson might be the more attractive RB3/flex given Callahan's loyalty to him in previous weeks. It's a situation to avoid if you can given Washington's poor offense overall.
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is expected to see plenty of work against the New York Jets in Week 11. Interim head coach Bill Callahan expects Guice to work in some passing and screen-game situations.
Fantasy Spin: Callahan reportedly likes Guice in passing downs, so expect veteran Adrian Peterson to continue serving as the primary ball carrier. However, Guice is making inroads and will likely see some fantasy appeal in re-draft leagues by season's end. He could be the primary back, which is what he was drafted to be, heading into the 2020 season. Fantasy owners in long-term dynasty formats will want to watch him closely.
Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson is expected to remain atop the depth chart despite the return of RB Derrius Guice. Before Guice's injury, interim head coach Bill Callahan said Guice was coming into his own as a check-down back and in pass-protection scenarios. Guice remains behind Peterson on the depth chart.
Fantasy Spin: Peterson and the Redskins actually face a difficult matchup in Week 11, as they meet the Jets. New York ranks No. 2 in the NFL against the run, allowing just 81.9 yards per game on the ground. However, they have allowed 10 rushing scores. Peterson remains an RB2 or flex fantasy option in most leagues.
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 6.
Fantasy Spin: It is not known if Guice will be eased into the offense or if he will take over the starting job. Fantasy players will need to monitor his practice participation next week to have a better idea on his role. He can be a starting option in leagues if he receives most of the carries.
The Washington Redskins officially activated running back Derrius Guice (knee) from the Injured Reserve on Wednesday. The second-year back is eligible to play when the team returns from their bye to face the Jets in Week 11. Guice was out all of his rookie year with a torn ACL and was injured in the season opener this year. He should be able to assume a large workload in the backfield the rest of the season, which is bad news for both Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson (toe). Guice has the most upside of anyone in this backfield, but he'll be running behind a poor offensive line. Consider him a shaky RB3/flex until we know more about how Washington will split up the carries moving forward. He's worth stashing in most leagues, especially if you're hurting at running back.
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) remains on the Reserve/Injured list, but he is practicing with the team 'on track' to return to game action in Week 11 against the New York Jets, according to interim head coach Bill Callahan.
Fantasy Spin: Fantasy owners would like nothing more than to see Guice resume feature-back duties, but it seems unlikely he's going to make much of an impact this season. While Washington has committed to the run under Callahan, the team lacks enough talent just about everywhere else offensively. Even if Guice remains healthy once he returns, he'll likely share duties with Adrian Peterson.
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) could return to practice next week, according to head coach Bill Callahan Wednesday, Oct. 16. RB Bryce Love (knee) will need more time, Callahan said.
Washington Redskins interim head coach Bill Callahan said that running back Derrius Guice (knee) could return to practice next week, but nothing is definite. Guice has been bothered by injuries since he came into the NFL, and there remains no timetable for his return. He's still a worthy stash in deeper leagues given the team's newfound commitment to the run under Callahan, but Washington's offense as a whole doesn't have much upside the rest of the way. They also still have Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson in the backfield, which makes it hard to predict a big role for Guice whenever he's fully healthy.
The Washington Redskins placed running back Derrius Guice (knee) on the Injured Reserve on Friday, according to a source. Guice had surgery to fix a torn meniscus in his knee on Thursday and will be out for the next six to eight weeks. He has a chance of returning later this season, but he can likely be dumped to the waiver wire in standard-sized leagues. The second-year back missed all of his rookie season with a torn ACL. Veteran Adrian Peterson will take over early-down duties moving forward, with Chris Thompson handling the pass-catching duties out of the backfield. Thompson has more fantasy appeal in PPR formats, while Peterson has limited upside in standard-scoring formats as an RB3/flex.
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a knee injury Friday, Sept. 13.
Fantasy Spin: As a result, Guice must sit out at least eight weeks. In the interim, Adrian Peterson will go from Week 1 healthy scratch to early-down workhorse. He should be considered a volatile flex option in fantasy. Chris Thompson will continue his role as the explosive change-of-pace/passing-down back. He'll also be on the flex radar.
Washington Redskins DE Jonathan Allen (knee), DT Caleb Brantley (foot), CB Quinton Dunbar (knee), RB Derrius Guice (knee) and QB Colt McCoy (leg) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 12. CB Fabian Moreau (ankle) and S Montae Nicholson (foot) were limited during practice.
Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice (knee) underwent surgery to trim a torn meniscus on Thursday, according to sources. Guice is now out indefinitely and is expected to miss the next six to eight weeks. The second-year back missed all of his rookie season with a torn ACL to his other knee. If you don't have an Injured Reserve spot to stash him, you can dump him for better options in redraft leagues. Guice is still a hold in dynasty formats. Adrian Peterson, who was a healthy inactive in Week 1, will now handle early down work for Washington and will start in Week 2 against the Cowboys, where he'll be an RB3/flex. He has a limited ceiling with Chris Thompson catching passes, but AD needs to be scooped up off waivers if his previous owner dropped him after he was inactive in the season opener.
