Every year there seems to be a slew of season-ending injuries that happen before the season even truly gets started. Unfortunately, this year is no different. First, we saw Hunter Henry lost for the season, and now Derrius Guice is as well. We here at Dynasty League Football all wish him a speedy recovery. However, it is our job to provide you, the readers, with the impact this has on dynasty values.
Derrius Guice, RB WAS
Guice was one of the crown jewels of the incoming rookie draft despite “slipping” in the real NFL draft. Few of the rookie running backs landed in better spots than Guice did, and this was reflected by his most recent rookie ADP of 1.2. Additionally, DLF staffers were high on Guice’s prospects as evidenced by his RB14 average ranking.
With his ACL torn, it’ll be another year before we get to see what second-round pick out of LSU can do. The good news is that an ACL injury is generally no longer career-ending, but most running backs take a bit of time to return to form. Hopefully, Guice will be fully recovered by the time week one hits next year. His price is sure to drop, so if you have an IR spot on your team or can afford to stash him, now would be a good time to strike up a trade conversation with his owner.
