2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL BREAKING NEWS: TORN ACL FINISHES DERRIUS GUICE FOR 2018

Unbelievable.  Updating an earlier item, a subsequent MRI conducted on Washington Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice revealed he suffered a torn ACL in his knee during the team's preseason opening Thursday night and he will now miss the entire 2018 season.  Even the most ardent Redskins haters have to feel for Guice as it is simply brutal to go down in your first professional action and then have to miss the rest of the year.  Having possessed some intriguing fantasy football upside in what was looking like a prime opportunity on a running back-needy team, Guice will now leave it up to second-year man Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson to fill the void.

As far as Perine is concerned, he was terrible when given the chance to play as a rookie but he will likely be the first and second down guy and then ceded third down to pass-catching dynamo Chris Thompson.  Thompson's fantasy football value is the most prominent of who is left in the Redskins backfield but either way this looks like one big mess.
