Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice rushed 11 times for 44 yards and caught one pass for four yards in a 19-7 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Aug. 22.
Huddle Up: Guice is Washington's most talented back, but he finds himself with plenty of competition for snaps after missing his rookie season with a knee injury. He is a RB3 with upside in redraft leagues, and he has long-term potential as a RB1 in dynasty formats.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is scheduled to play Thursday, Aug. 22, in a preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons. It's likely to be his only action of the preseason.
Huddle Up: Guice didn't play at all in his rookie season after being selected in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He's being drafted as an RB3 on average, but he's likely to open the season behind veteran Adrian Peterson in the Washington backfield. He has more value in keeper and dynasty leagues, as he may need to wait another full season before leading the backfield.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice may not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Guice has dealt with multiple injuries since entering the league, so the Redskins probably want to be cautious with him. He may end up splitting carries with Adrian Peterson this season, which would hurt is value. Guice has a chance to be a No. 3 fantasy running back if he receives most of the carries.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (hamstring) indicated that his hamstring injury is not serious.
Huddle Up: Guice could start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list but likely will not miss a lot of practice time. Guice probably will have to share playing time with Adrian Peterson this season but could still be a No. 3 fantasy running back if healthy.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) will 'be the guy right away' in the backfield if he looks healthy in training camp, in the opinion of John Keim of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Adrian Peterson is still in the mix, but if healthy, Guice offers versatility and big-play potential that Peterson can no longer match. Guice's exact role is up in the air, but he has the best chance to emerge as Washington's lead back. He has RB2 upside.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) has reportedly 'made good progress' and is expected to take part fully in training camp, according to comments made by head coach Jay Gruden on Monday, May 20.
'Derrius is coming along very well. We're just trying to make sure that leg - his quad and everything - is full strength before we let him go. That will probably be another thing we'll wait for training camp as well,' Gruden said.
Huddle Up: Guice returns to a much more crowded backfield than the one he left after tearing his ACL last August, as the team has since added Adrian Peterson and Bryce Love to the mix to go along with Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson. The 2018 second-rounder will likely share early-down reps with Peterson if he holds up and could eventually emerge as the starter later in the season if he finds his pre-injury form. Owners should consider him a late-round lottery ticket in fantasy drafts.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and could be ready to practice before the start of training camp, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Guice was the starting running back last season before the injury, but his role is uncertain with Adrian Peterson and Bryce Love on the roster. Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation, but he could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back if he receives a majority of the touches.

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.

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.
