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.
Huddle Up: 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 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.
Huddle Up: 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 Derrius Guice (knee) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 6.
Huddle Up: 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.

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.
Huddle Up: 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) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a knee injury Friday, Sept. 13.
Huddle Up: 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 RB Derrius Guice (knee) had surgery Thursday, Sept. 12, to trim a torn meniscus in his knee, according to sources. Guice is out indefinitely.
Huddle Up: Hang on to Guice if you have an open IR or bench spot, but expect to see Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson handle the RB duties in D.C. for the next month.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) could have surgery Thursday, Sept. 12, to repair a torn meniscus. If he has surgery, he'll be out four to six weeks.
Huddle Up: Adrian Peterson figures to step in and take most of the carries with Chris Thompson playing on passing downs. It would be best to avoid the entire situation this week against the Dallas Cowboys, but Peterson should be picked up off waivers.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is dealing with a meniscus injury and hopes to miss only a few weeks, according to a source. Guice is still waiting for an official diagnosis.
Huddle Up: Adrian Peterson should take over the starting role with Guice likely to miss at least a few games. Peterson played well last season and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option this week.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) underwent an MRI on his knee Monday, Sept. 9, and is likely to 'miss some time,' according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The injury is not to the same knee that sidelined Guice for the entire 2018 season.
Huddle Up: Guice was limited to 18 yards rushing on 10 carries before exiting in Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles. This injury paves the way for Adrian Peterson to return as the starter for however long Guice is sidelined after he was a healthy scratch in the opener.
