2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Age is just a number when you are a physical freak of nature like Adrian Peterson. After getting cast aside by the Saints and then a quick 10-game stint with the Cardinals, Peterson found a home with the Redskins last season after Derrius Guice suffered a season-ending knee injury in the preseason.

The ageless one rushed for just over 1000 yards and seven touchdowns on 251 carries, while adding 200 yards and a touchdown on 20 receptions through the air. His 10.8 fantasy points per game placed him 20th among running backs, just a tenth of a point behind Nick Chubb and Kerryon Johnson. AD scored more rushing touchdowns than Ezekiel Elliott and caught more passes for more yards than Marlon Mack, Chris Carson, and Lamar Miller.

The Redskins rewarded Peterson with a two-year contract that will pay him just over $5 million over the next two seasons. It is conceivable that the team could cut Peterson with a limited cap hit should Guice blow up, but all indications point to a committee approach on first down with Peterson and Guice both getting work to start the year.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury More injury troubles for Derrius Guice
Expected to miss time with knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 9, 12:36 pm

Washington Redskins
Sources: #Redskins RB Derrius Guice had an MRI this morning on the other, non-ACL knee and he’s likely to miss some time. The hope is he does not need surgery, but the team is doing a full evaluation. He gained 18 yards on 10 carries, looking like he wasn’t himself. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's unfortunate for Guice who was set to get the bulk of rushing duties for the Redskins after Adrian Peterson was declared inactive in Week 1. Expect Peterson to take over work on early-downs beginning in Week 2 with Chris Thompson sticking in his familiar third-down role.


Adrian Peterson expected to be inactive
Wendell Smallwood expected to be active

Washington Redskins
The Redskins resurrected Adrian Peterson's career, then handed him a big new contract. And now, in his first game in 2019, he won't be on the field. Sources say that Peterson is expected to be a surprise inactive as the Redskins play the Eagles today. Second-year back Derrius Guice will be the starter. "We feel like he can be a first, second and even a third down back," Gruden told reporters this week. "I think the offense, carries wise, will probably go through him, pretty much." (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Peterson doesn't play special teams so his spot will be taken by Wendell Smallwood. Guice gets a bump on this news as he and Chris Thompson should handle the bulk of running back duties against the Eagles. However, the matchup isn't great leaving Guice with a ceiling of a low-end RB2.


Adrian Peterson looking at healthy scratch?
Derrius Guice appears to have locked up early-down role
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 5, 8:40 pm

Washington Redskins
Jay Gruden plans to start Derrius Guice at RB but hasn’t decided whether to dress two more or three more backs. Could need the third back to play teams. Won’t say if Adrian Peterson is the odd man out yet. Still trying to decide. (USA TODAY - Mike Jones)

FFToday's Take: Peterson can't be pleased after rushing for more than 1,000 yards in 2018 and signing a two-year extension in the offseason. It's hard to know if Guice earned the job or if Washington is ready to see what it spent a second-round pick on last year, but there's no question about his talent. Guice has quickly ascended from a fantasy bench stash to possible every-week starting option, even behind what appears to be a bad offensive line.


Washington offense to go through Derrius Guice?
Missed all of 2018 with ACL injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 2, 5:00 pm

Washington Redskins
Redskins RB Derrius Guice will have the offense "go through him", coach Jay Gruden said Monday. That means veteran Adrian Peterson will open in a backup role, with Chris Thompson as the third-down back. The biggest question regarding this situation has been Guice's health. He's coming off a torn ACL suffered in August, but looked good enough in his one game this preseason - 44 yards on 11 carries vs. Atlanta - that Washington feels confident in him. More importantly, they need him to trust his left knee again. (ESPN - John Keim)

FFToday's Take: Not many teams have the luxury of sitting a 1,000-yard back from a season ago, but many teams aren't the Redskins. (Pause for laughter.) There's no question Guice is a high-level talent, but one has to wonder if featuring him - or something close to that - is the right move behind an offensive line without Trent Williams and little to speak in the passing game. Either way, if Gruden sticks to his plan and gets Guice 200 or more carries, he'll definitely be in the RB2 mix.
