Redskins | WAS captain speaks highly of Derrius Guice

Wed, 18 Jul 2018 17:48:06 -0700

Washington Redskins SS D.J. Swearinger predicted that RB Derrius Guice "will be a Pro Bowler," while adding, "He will be one of the top three rushers in the league this year. For sure. No doubt in my mind about that."

Fantasy Tip: Swearinger will be entering his seventh year in the league and is one of the team's captains, so his glowing commentary does hold at least a little bit of water. The problem is it's still unknown what Guice's workload will be out of the gate, with the Redskins also having Chris Thompson, Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley. Guice is worth targeting regardless, though, for his incredibly high ceiling, being capable of notching RB1 production.

Redskins | Former teammate high on Derrius Guice

Sun, 17 Jun 2018 19:04:43 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice is going to do "big things" this season, according to Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette. "He always had the talent when I was there at LSU," Fournette said. "He's going to have a great year."

Fantasy Tip: Fournette powered his way to 1,040 rushing yards and 10 total touchdowns as a rookie, and Guice could approach those numbers if he commands most of the carries on early downs, as expected. Guice is a RB2 candidate in redraft leagues and a first-round pick in rookie drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Guice is already slated to handle the carries on early downs, and if he can add the occasional reception, it will only bolster his fantasy value. He looks like a solid RB2 at this point.

Redskins | Chris Thompson in line for big role?

Thu, 17 May 2018 19:44:20 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice will likely be the starter according to Gregg Rosenthal of, but Rosenthal said it "wouldn't be a surprise" if RB Chris Thompson ended up playing more snaps this year.

Fantasy Tip: Prior to his injury last year, Thompson had emerged as a dynamic weapon in the passing game. Expect the same role for Thompson in 2018, and he should be an excellent flex option in PPR formats.

Redskins | Derrius Guice's role already clear

Thu, 10 May 2018 09:59:08 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice has the fortune, as a rookie, of already knowing when he'll be on the field. Head coach Jay Gruden has made it clear that Guice will be in on first and second downs with RB Chris Thompson maintaining his passing-down role. Gruden added that Guice needs to improve his pass protection, but he also gave Guice credit for being a good pass-catcher.

Fantasy Tip: Guice and Thompson have the ability to form quite the dynamic duo in the nation's capital. Guice's role is more suited for standard leagues since Thompson will be in on the majority of passing situations. In either format, Guice is an RB2 candidate as Washington's primary ball-carrier.

Redskins | Chris Thompson's role not changing

Tue, 08 May 2018 17:19:17 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson will continue to be the top option out of the backfield on passing downs despite the arrival of second-round RB Derrius Guice, according to ESPN's John Keim, who believes Jordan Reed's health will affect the degree to which Thompson needs to be leaned on in 2018.

Fantasy Tip: In six games with Reed last season, Thompson was targeted 21 times and caught 18 passes with two touchdowns. In four games Thompson played without Reed, the former was targeted 31 times with 21 receptions and two touchdowns. Considering Reed's durability issues, Thompson figures to be busy at some point again this season. And as long as Thompson stays healthy, Guice's role in the passing game figures to be limited. Consider Guice a low-end RB2 at best and Thompson a high-end RB3/flex.

Redskins | Derrius Guice motivated

Sun, 29 Apr 2018 19:59:27 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice said he can't control all "the rumors and stuff" that surrounded him leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft but will use the situation as motivation. "Now I'm going to run angrier than ever," Guice said. "It's going to be tough for a lot of teams to bring me down."

Fantasy Tip: Guice will have a great opportunity to win the starting role in Washington. He'll be a RB3 with upside in redraft leagues and one of the top prospects in rookie drafts.
