Wondering how people look at Guice in rookie drafts? Seemed to be the consensus 1.02 until today. Some would argue he is still the 1.02 just on talent alone, depending on the drafters current needs. I’m hoping he gets to 1.04. I really don’t have any needs. He’d be a stash to potentially move down the road. Or..... would you target another RB that has upside? Penny, Freeman, Jones? Or.... would you try to trade the pick for a 2019 or 2020 1st and 2nd?

Has your rookie draft occurred? I'm not really a fan of stashing guys who will miss a season, since you can always target guys who are most likely to play. Do you mind posting your roster/league scoring? I think DJ Moore should be on the radar as a potential 1.02 provided you've got good RBs
I believe @CKl and @devinmci have some very good thoughts here.

@DynastyLove Yeah, we were discussing this question the other day--to me Guice's value essentially reverts to the 2019 1.02, in the sense that his value will more or less be bubble-wrapped until next summer. Of course you need to downgrade a little for the risk of complications/setbacks in his recovery, but I think they are only slightly greater than any player's baseline risk for injury over the next year.
If I'm not contending, I'm content taking Guice 1.02 if you think his talent level is the highest, although I would probably try to trade down and get him a bit later. For most teams, I think he slides below Penny, Freeman, Michel, and is very similar now to Kerryon Johnson and Nick Chubb. Rojo I think is league dependent, but is probably sliding down considering his reported issues in the passing game (when his upside is tied to heavy passing game volume).

@DynastyLove not sure if you're bragging or what, but you probably should be.
if you were asking what to do with your 1.04 I'd probably try to trade back and acquire a few more picks and pick up one or two of the WR in the late first/early second (miller, Washington, Sutton, etc) since it seems like you are pretty well set at RB.

Sorry..... not trying to brag at all. I’ve been fortunate with drafting and trading over the last few years.
I still have not won a championship in this league, though. That is frustrating.
I have an offer to swap the 1.04 for the 1.08 and the 2.06. If Guice falls to 1.08 I’d take him. Or, like you said, one of the top WR’s.
Another offer is 2019 1st and 2nd. Guessing these picks will be in the middle of each round? But, who knows?

I like the 1.08 and 2.06 here vs. future firsts/seconds. I think you've put together a ridiculously strong roster, and could honestly move some RB depth for WR help. I like Landry and JuJU, but Docston/Agholor/Cobb could all be upgraded to other potential studs.
But goodness, this is one hell of a squad. I got no words. Just silent admiration and i'm bummed you haven't won the league given this monster of a squad.

@DynastyLove I agree with @hrr5010 -- I like that 1.08 and 2.06 swap.

I have only mild dissent with the other two guys.
you have two reasonable offers on the table, and while I much prefer the 1.08/2.06, if you're on the clock you may end up getting a bit more. but I think I would need multiple future 1sts, since you're only moving down 4 spaces in a really stacked rookie draft with the other offer.
if you wanna make it happen prior to the draft then I would go 1.8/2.6.
