Washington RB Derrius Guice will see his first action today since Week 1. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, "It's likely that Guice gets his carries and catches on third down to begin with." Adrian Peterson is expected to keep operating as the starter and should lead the team in carries against the Jets. We'll see how much work Guice gets and how involved he'll be in the passing game. The continued absence of RB Chris Thompson (toe) helps free up playing time and touches.

Redskins interim HC Bill Callahan said that he'll deploy a committee backfield with RBs Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice. "We've got a pretty good rotational system for that," Callahan said. "We feel pretty confident [Guice will] see quite a bit of action this weekend." Try to take a wait-and-see approach with this situation and avoid both RBs against a surprisingly stout Jets run defense.

Redskins interim HC Bill Callahan said that RB Derrius Guice (knee) is on track to return when 1st eligible in Week 11. He got back on the practice field on Monday. It'd make sense for the 1-7 'Skins to get another look at Guice down the stretch, rather than pounding Adrian Peterson into the ground. Guice is worth stashing now in deeper fantasy leagues.

The Redskins have placed RB Derrius Guice (knee) on IR. It's unclear if he'll be a candidate to return, but he's out for at least 8 weeks. Guice can be dropped in leagues without an IR spot or super deep benches. Adrian Peterson steps back in as Washington's lead back after rushing for 1,042 yards on 4.2 yards per carry last year. Peterson won't contribute much in the passing game, though, and should only be considered a RB3 on fantasy rosters.

Redskins RB Derrius Guice indeed underwent surgery on Thursday and is out "indefinitely," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We should get a more concrete timetable for Guice's return over the next few days. He's worth stashing if you have an IR spot or a deep bench. But he's also cuttable if you're desperate for immediate help. Adrian Peterson takes over as Washington's lead back, with Chris Thompson continuing to dominate passing-down work.

Injury Predictor

Guice enjoyed an explosive LSU career that included leading the SEC in rushing in 2016, with Leonard Fournette still on his team. A left-knee strain cost Guice a game in 2017 and limited him in others. His yards per carry dipped from 7.6 in 2016 to 5.3. In Washington, Guice should immediately assume lead ball-carrying duties, with Chris Thompson dominating the pass-catching role.
