Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (hamstring, knee) 'tweaked' his hamstring several weeks ago as he was continuing his rehab from ACL surgery. According to 106.7 The Fan contributor Erin Hawksworth via sources, Guice may miss the start of training camp as a result.

Summary

Derrius Guice was the talk of the 2018 preseason, for his effusive personality off the field and his hard work and impressive work ethic on the field. Unfortunately, Guice tore his ACL in the preseason and missed the season. He also endured a post-surgical infection, which extended his recovery time. The coaching staff expects Guice to be 100% healthy for training camp, in which case fantasy managers can re-acquaint themselves with the powerhouse runner. Guice probably wouldn't have outperformed Saquon Barkley last season, but he was more than capable of emerging as a workhorse, every down back and No. 1 fantasy option. When healthy, Guice has great patience and vision and can break tackles consistently. He's got lateral agility to break into the second level, and the aggressive mentality to win inside battles in short yardage. Adrian Peterson's decision to return for another season complicates Guice's role this year, but he's got the talent to displace Peterson at some point this year, if not in 2020 and beyond. (May 2)

Redskins | Derrius Guice not worried about hamstring (Sun Jul 14, 01:11 PM) - Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (hamstring) indicated that his hamstring injury is not serious.

Our View: It was reported late last week that Guice injured his hamstring while rehabbing and is going to be questionable for the start of training camp. Guice missed all of his rookie season in 2018 due to a knee injury and now this injury could at least limit him when he's ready to return. He has a ton of talent when at full strength, but Guice also has to split time with Adrian Peterson. His current ADP might be too rich for some as Guice is going off the board at RB30 (6.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Redskins | Derrius Guice injures hamstring (Fri Jul 12, 03:58 PM) - Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (hamstring, knee) 'tweaked' his hamstring several weeks ago as he was continuing his rehab from ACL surgery. According to 106.7 The Fan contributor Erin Hawksworth via sources, Guice may miss the start of training camp as a result.

Our View: Guice just can't catch a break. He missed all of his rookie season in 2018 due to a knee injury and now this. A hamstring injury can linger, so expect Washington to take it easy on him as he deals with coming back from yet another injury. When healthy, Guice will get some work alongside Adrian Peterson in Washington's backfield.
