Guice suffered an infection after ACL surgery in August and had to have three additional procedures, but he hopes to be ready for OTAs. Jay Gruden expects him to be a full go for the open of training camp

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)
