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.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice rushed 10 times for 18 yards and caught three passes for 20 yards in a 32-27 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Guice had no room to work against Philadelphia's talented defensive front, but on the plus side, he was used as the main back on early downs and saw some work in the passing game. If he continues to receive a bulk of the touches, he should at least be a low-end RB2 option most weeks.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice's performance against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Aug. 22, impressed head coach Jay Gruden. 'Looked like he was decisive with his cuts for the most part, ran with some power at times, moved the pile when there wasn't anything there,' Gruden said.
Huddle Up: While Guice is likely slated for a committee with Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson to open the year, he could take command of the backfield sooner rather than later. He's a safer pick in keeper formats, but he has a enough upside in redraft leagues to take a chance on in the middle rounds.

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.
