|Redskins release Adrian Peterson|
Moving forward with Gibson, Barber, McKissic
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 4, 7:59 am
|A surprise: The Washington Football Team is releasing legendary RB Adrian Peterson, sources tell me and
@MikeGarafolo. Ron Rivera valued Adrian Peterson’s leadership as he set the program. But with Antonio Gibson emerging and the likes of J.D. McKissic and Peyton Barber also having strong camps, there just was no role for Peterson, who intends to keep climbing the all-time rushing list elsewhere. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: With the team liking what they've seen from their other running backs, Peterson's role was going to be diminished. The veteran RB has stated he still wants to keep playing. The fantasy RB situation now becomes a jumbled mess with no obvious target. Barber and Gibson are the most likely to return notable fantasy value, but this is largely a situation to stay away from.
|Derrius Guice arrested, released by Washington|
Domestic violence charges
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 7, 7:36 pm
|Shortly after running back Derrius Guice was arrested Friday on domestic violence-related charges, the Washington Football Team announced it was releasing the 23-year-old running back.
Guice faces charges that include one count of strangulation, a felony, according to a spokesman for the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. The other charges are three counts of assault and battery as well as one count of destruction of property. (Washington Post)|
FFToday's Take: Guice turned himself into police earlier this evening and was released on bond. He's been plagued by knee injuries since entering the league in 2018 playing only 5 games in two years. The Football Team now has Adrian Peterson, Antonio Gibson, Peyton Barber, Bryce Love and J.D. McKissic in the running back room. Guice is likely to be facing a league suspension when/if he resurfaces.
