Washington Redskins

The hype train for second-round rookie Derrius Guice has officially left the station. The Redskins have praised the rookie’s receiving ability, pass protection and even his work in the meeting room this offseason.

Guice is the RB21 in The Action Network RB Rankings and could secure the team’s early-down role with a strong preseason. Proof of enhanced receiving ability (combined with a slow return from space back Chris Thompson) could maybe land Guice a three-down workload.

New England Patriots

The Patriots’ defense finished last season 31st in DVOA . Bill Belichick and linebackers coach Brian Flores have since taken over for former defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, while ex-Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler has been replaced by cornerback Jason McCourty (brother of starting free safety Devin).

The good news is that linebacker Dont’a Hightower and defensive end Derek Rivers (the team’s top 2017 pick) are healthy and give the front seven some much needed juice. Our experts rank the Patriots D/ST as fantasy’s eighth-best unit in The Action Network D/ST Rankings.
