NFL Best Ball: How Does Derrius Guice's Latest Injury Affect His Draft Stock?
A hamstring injury has slowed Derrius Guice in his recovery from a torn ACL, putting his training camp in jeopardy. Our experts explain how far the Washington running back moves down their rankings, and whether they’ll risk taking him at all.
How does Derrius Guice’s latest injury affect his draft stock?
STLCards: This depends on your risk tolerance. In the middle rounds, sometimes it’s easier to take a chance. I’ll bump him down about 5-6 spots in the RB rankings right now.
Beermakersfan: Guice is a guy I was once very high on, but the combination of the nagging injuries plus the offense likely not being very good has me looking elsewhere at that point in the draft to guys like Tevin Coleman, Darrell Henderson, Latavius Murray and the Seattle RBs.
Chris Gimino: I nearly crossed him off my board to begin with and I’m now fully out. I won’t even own one share.
JSURab: I was not very high on Guice to begin with this year coming off of that injury. I feel like they were going to ease him in anyways, but with this latest injury I did drop him another six spots. It’s really just a situation I am going to avoid unless he starts to drop too low in drafts.
JoshADHD: I was already avoiding the Washington offense this offseason, and this injury doesn’t give me a reason to draft Adrian Peterson or Chris Thompson. I would perhaps take a look at Bryce Love in the last round of drafts, but wouldn’t make him more than 15% of my portfolio.
