If in your shoes I would wait out the rest of preseason to see how the various rookie RBs shake out in playing time. If I had to draft today I would be tempted to take Guice anyway as a 2019 stash, or if with your roster that includes Burkhead, grab Sony Michel as handcuff (although we all know the NE backfield is a coin flip week to week). This year I have the 1.01 and 1.05 p icks and still have no clear plan for 1.05. Am waiting for more preseason action to help me figure that out. 1.02 must be a real headache right now. Maybe you can get some greater value by trading it?

I'd take Penny, or a top RB in this years class. Everyone is too high on Guice IMO, if they think they should take him at 1.02 and stash him, this RB class has tons of talent that could help you this year. He's being overarated, he isn't some generational talent. He was taken at the back end of the 2nd round behind a lot of good RB's, and character issues weren't all of it. Guice will have had a bum knee for 2 years, he had disappointing numbers his junior years supposedly because his knee was hurt, now he just tore it. He isn't nearly the same prospect Fournette is. Just pick the best RB that can play this year. I think Penny is better anyway, but regardless, Guice was behind Marshall on 3rd downs in the first preseason game with Thompson out, so they don't really view him as a 3 down guy, and Gruden stated that already. He's a 2 down back with 3rd and short mixed in, and IF their passing down back gets hurt, he may spell them. I'd go with someone who can help this year, there are a ton of rookies people might be high on next year, try and get Guice then. You're got the making of a good team this year, don't stash with a premium pick, like I said, he's not that much better (IMO not better at all) then some of the guys avaiable.
