Dynasty & Redraft: RB Derrius Guice, Redskins

I think this is just his way of saying he wants no part of the Washington running game in 2019. But if we look out a year from now, Guice might be poised to be approaching RB1 territory and he can be had for less than that. 12-18 months from now I think his value is much higher so buy now.

The owners of Guice spent high draft capital on him last year and don’t want to move him on the cheap in my situations.  Not even sure what to offer at this point. 

I’m hoping he starts the season off slow, and then is the time to go get him.

Pretty sure everyone knows he'll start slow, probably as AP backup, for the first 5 games or so. However, around week 6/7, look out.

Just acquired him for the 1.12, 2.10 and 2020 2nd.

That's a steal. Makes my trade back in March of 1.03 (Harry) look like a bad overpay

Where would Guice go in this draft, 1.02 maybe?

Possibly. 

I'm not regretting my trade, just saying this one shows Guice can be had much cheaper.

I would take him 1.01 and I wouldn’t have to think about it.  By far the best back if he was in this draft

Had this discussion last week in the trade thread but I think in different drafts he'd range from 1-5 but his ADP would be 1.2. I traded him last week along with a projected late 2020#2 for 1.2/2.2. FWIW I'd have held him for just the 1.2, he would be my #2 player.

They are predicting 1100 yards total and 6-8 tds. That is about what I expect as well and don’t think it is a bad thing. Starts slow, finishes strong.

hard to believe those stats dont put him into the top 24

ETA: that very well may not be enough... just glancing at those numbers I feel like I'd be pretty happy with that from my rb2. guess I'm a bit off on what it takes to be top 24

Agreed. I just think it may be a tale of two halves for him. Similar to Chubb last year.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden expects Derrius Guice (knee) to be ready for training camp.

"Derrius is coming along very well," Gruden said Monday. "We’re just trying to make sure that leg — his quad and everything — is full strength before we let him go." ESPN's Adam Schefter reported last month that Guice was coming along "a little slower" than expected, but Gruden has been working overtime since to prove that's not true. Only time will tell. Guice went down early last August.

I'm reading something here I dont particularly like

 

Most coaches dont mention anything specific about a particular injury/recovery. it's always "we just want his knee to be stronger." to specifically call out the quads, to me, means this has been an issue (expected for me, but its early yet).

The biggest issue with his infection and follow up surgeries is the delay in strengthening the quadriceps. The fact that Gruden called this out specifically means that it is or has been an issue for Guice that the medical staff has mentioned to him. Most coaches are grossly uninformed when it comes to anatomy. Since this is an issue already for someone with an ACL tear, I imagine it's worse for a guy who had an infection that delayed things for a month or two. 

He still has plenty of time to get it stronger, but I wouldnt be surprised to see him off to a very slow start, maybe even PUP if his quad isnt ready

Significant risk for compensation injury?
