Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) should be ready for the start of the 2020 season, according to vice president of player personnel Kyle Smith.
Huddle Up: Guice has struggled with injuries since entering the NFL and was limited to five games this past season. He did rush for 245 yards and two touchdowns in those games. He may be part of a committee at running back in 2020, so fantasy players should monitor the situation during the offseason. He can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) said he has fully recovered from the knee injury that sent him to the Reserve/Injured list at the end of last season, and he is focused on proving he can be a reliable back. 'I want to show the whole thing,' Guice said. 'I want everybody to see everything.'
Huddle Up: Guice has been plagued by knee injuries since entering the NFL, but he has shown flashes of his RB1 potential when he has been on the field. He should enter 2020 as the starter, but he will be a high-risk, high-reward pick because of the injury history.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a sprained medial collateral ligament Tuesday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: The Redskins will finish out the season with Adrian Peterson carrying the load on early downs and Chris Thompson handling most of the work on passing downs. Guice has flashed several times during his two-year NFL career he's been healthy, but he has only been healthy for parts of five games. While Guice could open 2020 as the starter, Washington will almost certainly make sure it has a viable fallback option, which will likely include Peterson.

Huddle Up: Adrian Peterson has rushed 33 times for 175 yards and two touchdowns in the last two weeks, and he'll be a flex consideration against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) rushed for 42 yards on five carries against the Green Bay Packers in Week 14 before he left the game because a knee injury.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Guice will have a chance to play in Week 15. He can be a flex option in fantasy leagues if he plays, but players should have other options available in case he is ruled out.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) will not return to the Week 14 game because of his knee injury.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should know more about Guice's injury in the next day or two. Adrian Peterson will receive most of the work if Guice misses time and can be at least a flex option in leagues.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 14 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation to see if Guice will be able to return to the game. Adrian Peterson will receive most of the snaps at running back if Guice misses time and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option.

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.
Huddle Up: 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 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.
Huddle Up: 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.
