Injury Knee - ACL
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Nagging injuries at LSU combined with character concerns likely led to Guice's fall to the bottom of the second round in the 2018 draft. But Washington was all too happy to scoop him up with the 59th overall pick, and he entered training camp as the favorite to serve as the team's lead runner. Guice has the speed, vision, balance and power to be a nightmare for defenders, and he was extremely difficult to take down in college once he broke through to the second level and had some space to operate. Even in close quarters he's no easy target, as he rarely allows defenders to square him up until he's ready to lower his shoulder and pound out extra yardage, something he seems to delight in doing. Unfortunately, Guice will need to wait until 2019 to strut his stuff in the NFL, as he had the misfortune of suffering a torn ACL during the first week of the preseason. Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine are left to compete for carries, with Chris Thompson handling passing downs. Read Past Outlooks

Happy to have Peterson back
RBWashington Redskins
Knee - ACL
March 17, 2019
Guice (knee) and Chris Thompson have expressed satisfaction with the Redskins' re-signing of fellow running back Adrian Peterson, Zach Brook of NBC Sports Washington reports.
ANALYSIS
Peterson initially signed in mid-August after Guice suffered a torn ACL in the preseason opener, ultimately finishing the season with 1,250 scrimmage yards and eight touchdowns as a 16-game starter. Meanwhile, the rookie second-round pick suffered a major setback early in his recovery, requiring three additional procedures and a seven-week course of antibiotics to treat a post-surgery infection. Guice has made up for lost time since the end of the season, with a report from mid-February suggesting he's regained his upper body strength and resumed straight-line sprinting. Assuming he's ready for training camp, Guice will compete with Peterson for carries while Thompson presumably handles most of the passing-down work. The crowded backfield is far from ideal for fantasy purposes, but each of the three players has enough talent to provide considerable value if he finds his way to a stable workload. Given his age, draft pedigree and potential versatility, Guice has the highest ceiling of the bunch.
