Apparently Guice hasn't yet earned the job over Perine and Rob Kelley, but you can choose to ignore that unless it lasts into the preseason. Guice is a potential workhorse and this Redskins' offense should score enough that we could see a fringe RB1 season out of Guice should he be given 250+ touches.

Derrius Guice stands out during reps with first team

Rookie running back Derrius Guice made a positive impression throughout OTAs and minicamp, splitting first-team reps with Rob Kelley and also flashed a three-down skill set. The Washington Post's Kareem Copeland wrote that Guice was "running with juice, showing off sharp cuts and displaying a good set of hands in the passing game," and his presence has elevated the play of the team's entire backfield.

Fantasy Impact

Guice was tremendous at LSU, especially during his sophomore season when he ran for 1,387 yards and 15 touchdowns. Guice has been lauded as s a first- and second-down back but showed promise as a receiver in 2017 and has looked solid so far this summer. Often times a player is labeled as a poor pass-catcher but that may simply not be the case. Sometimes it's just not part of his college pedigree--former teammate Leonard Fournette is a good example of this and caught 36 balls as a rookie. Guice is shaping up to be a nice value in redraft leagues and could easily wind up as a top-3 rookie producer in 2018.
