Could a Redskins Running Back Not Named Derrius Guice Be Relevant?

Washington head coach Jay Gruden said Derrius Guice has yet to be cleared for contact as he continues to recover from a torn ACL and other complications. The Redskins have a handful of backs who have been serviceable at times in their careers, but this isn’t exactly a desirable offense. Our experts examine whether anyone could emerge from this backfield as a fantasy starter outside of Guice.

Which non-Guice Redskins RB has the best chance to contribute RB2 numbers?

STLCards: It’s the Redskins. They will use about six guys, and none of them will be consistent. Seriously, though, it has to be Adrian Peterson by default. To his credit, Peterson is saying all the right things, including that he wants to run for 2,000 yards again. Even one-third of that goal would be a positive year.
