    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.

  • Posted: 1/17/2019 7:10pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) posted a video of himself on social media running and doing other drills on the field.

    Huddle Up: Guice's rookie season was lost to a knee injury, but he should still have a chance to show he can lead the Washington backfield as early as next season. For now, he's a great stash candidate in keeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/12/2018 11:08pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) required three additional procedures following August surgery to repair his ACL due to an infection, all of which has slowed his rehab. Guice is no longer dealing with the infection, however, and still hopes to be ready for OTAs next summer.

    Huddle Up: Guice's recovery will be a story to watch as he looked the part of a quality NFL back prior to injury. He's obviously a nice stash candidate in keeper leagues as well.

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) will have surgery Friday, Aug. 17 to repair his torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to a source. Renowned Dr. James Andrews will perform the procedure.

    Huddle Up: Guice is done for the season with a torn ACL, so it will be up to a committee led by Rob Kelley, Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson to fill the void. Kapri Bibbs might also factor in at some point. Each have their strong points in fantasy, with Thompson useful in PPR leagues and as a flex play in standard. Kelley and Perine are more RB3-type options in standard leagues for now, and their value could fluctuate based upon touches.

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is out for the season, but head coach Jay Gruden said he is satisfied with the depth behind Guice.

    Huddle Up: Chris Thompson, Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley will compose a three-headed committee with Guice out of commission. Thompson is the preferred option in PPR leagues as a PPR RB2 or RB3, while Perine has a slight edge over Kelley as of now. He's more of a flex consideration.

  • Posted: 8/11/2018 11:44am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Aug. 11.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins may use a committee at running back with Rob Kelley, Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson all receiving snaps at the position. Thompson will be a valuable option in point-per-reception leagues and could be a flex option in standard leagues. Kelley and Perine could be No. 3 running backs in standard leagues depending on their touches.

    Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) tore his ACL against the New England Patriots on Thursday, Aug. 9, and will miss the rest of the season, according to ESPN's John Keim.

    Huddle Up: This is obviously a huge downer for one of the best rookie running backs in the 2018 draft class and a big blow to the Redskins' hopes for improving their rushing attack from a season ago. Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley will battle it out for the right to replace him as the early-down back, while Chris Thompson may be asked to resume a similar role to what he had in 2017 and will likely be the back to own for fantasy purposes in Washington.

  • Posted: 8/10/2018 8:21am ET

    Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) received an initial diagnosis of a sprained medial collateral ligament, according to a source. He'll have an MRI to confirm.

    Huddle Up: The injury could knock him out the rest of the preseason, but it sounds like he dodged a blow here. If the injury forces him to miss real time, Rob Kelley should re-enter the fold on first and second downs. Guice is a high-end RB3 right now with potential for more. Kelley is RB5 insurance.

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI Friday, Aug. 10, on the knee injury he suffered in the first preseason game.

    Huddle Up: Owners should know the extent of Guice's injury in the next few days. He appears to have a decent chance to win the starting job if the injury is not considered serious. He can be considered a No. 3 fantasy running back if he starts.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 5:29pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is being evaluated for a knee injury during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 9, against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Guice recorded six rushes for 19 yards before apparently suffering some sort of knee ailment. The severity of it, if any at all, could have big ramifications on the Redskins offense, so stay tuned if something arises here. Chris Thompson, Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine would be worth monitoring if Guice has to miss any time.

  • Posted: 7/31/2018 11:34am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice has already been praised by the coaching staff for his involvement in meetings and his aggression on field. Guice has been working to improve his pass protection and trying to solidify his technique so as not to overcommit on a block.

    Huddle Up: Plenty of teams were unsure of Guice heading into the draft; a lot of that uncertainty was off the field. So far he has shown the Redskins that they made the right choice. His PPR value is lessened due to the presence of Chris Thompson, but he's an RB2 candidate in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 7/26/2018 2:53pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice received most of the snaps with the first-team offense during practice Thursday, July 26.

    Huddle Up: Guice appears to be on track to be the main ball carrier for the Redskins this season, but owners should monitor the situation. He can be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he wins the starting job.
