Fantasy Impact:

Straight from the dog's mouth this time, so to speak. My previous report on Guice entering the draft was as follows, and nothing changed: "Guice is widely viewed as the #2 fantasy prospect in the 2018 class behind Saquon Barkley, and will likely be a first round pick in the NFL Draft. He was very productive at LSU, rushing for over 3,000 yards and 29 touchdowns in three seasons. He averaged an excellent 6.5 yards per carry over his career. Guice added 32 receptions for 250 yards and three touchdowns in the passing game. Guice's biggest detriment in relation to Barkley for both NFL teams and fantasy owners will be that he catches far fewer passes. If Guice is used in the passing game, he could become an elite option at the position, but if not, his outlook will be less rosy. Guice is a distant second to Barkley at this point, but landing spot can change a lot, especially for running backs."
