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.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) was diagnosed with a sprained medial collateral ligament, but his anterior cruciate ligament was intact. He'll be out in Week 15, and he could miss the rest of the season.
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.

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.
