Carlos Hyde rushed 13 times for 65 yards in the 49ers' Week 12 loss to the Dolphins, adding five receptions for 30 yards and a touchdown.
With the 49ers doing an excellent job of executing the read option, Hyde averaged a season-high 5.0 yards per carry. The receiving score was his first of the year. Looking rejuvenated the past two weeks, Hyde will be a solid RB2 against the Bears' decimated defense in Week 13. Nov 27 - 6:27 PM

49ers coach Chip Kelly said Carlos Hyde is the "main focus of what we’re doing offensively."

"It’s just overall the way our team is built," Kelly said. "We’re built to run the football." Hyde has been a workhorse when healthy this season, but he has struggled to stay on the field his entire career. His chances will certainly not be helped by running the ball 20 times a game, but fantasy owners will take the production. Hyde will be a high-end RB2 this week against the Dolphins.

Carlos Hyde delivered 86 yards on 19 carries and caught all three of his targets for 24 yards Sunday in the 49ers' Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

This was one of Hyde’s better performances of the year and a huge improvement from last week’s debacle (13 carries for 14 yards). Game script was expected to work against him on Sunday but the Patriots didn’t blow it open until the fourth quarter, which afforded Hyde three quarters of solid production. Hyde never broke the big one but he kept the chains moving and opened the offense up for Colin Kaepernick. Hyde will be in the RB2 discussion next week against Miami.

Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is practicing fully for Week 11.

Hyde returned to action last week after missing the previous two games with a sprained AC joint. He had an awful game, totaling just 14 yards on 13 carries. Despite his lackluster showing, Hyde will be in the RB2 conversation Sunday against New England.
Nov 16 - 5:28 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed 13 times for 14 yards in the 49ers' Week 10 loss to the Cardinals.

Making his return from a shoulder injury, Hyde was completely ineffective, running for a long gain of five yards. He also didn't catch his lone pass-game target, though Colin Kaepernick overthrew him a bit in the end zone on the play. Hyde simply had no room to run, and DuJuan Harris wasn't much better with just 14 yards on five carries. Hyde will look to rebound in a Week 11 home date with the Patriots. New England has played pretty well against the run this year.
Nov 13 - 7:53 PM

Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is active for Week 10 against the Cardinals.

Mike Davis is a healthy scratch, leaving Hyde, DuJuan Harris, and Shaun Draughn as the 49ers' backfield. Hyde's shoulder issue has given him more fits than was initially expected, and he's expected to share more work with Harris after Harris' big Week 9 against the Saints. In addition to Davis, OLB Aaron Lynch, CB Rashard Robinson, QB Christian Ponder, OT John Theus, and TE Je'Ron Hamm are also inactive.
Nov 13 - 2:58 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Carlos Hyde (shoulder, questionable) is expected to play in Sunday's Week 10 game against the Cardinals.

Hyde's shoulder injury sidelined him a bit longer than expected but after putting in another limited week of practice, it looks like he's finally ready to go. Hyde is usually a weekly RB2 in fantasy but we're always hesitant to trust players coming off lengthy injuries, especially in a matchup where game script could become an issue. He belongs on the RB2/3 borderline. Daily Slant: The last time Hyde played the Cardinals, he picked up six receptions for 36 yards. With San Francisco entering the game as 14-point underdogs, they’re expected to implement a similar pass-heavy game plan. However, DuJuan Harris will have a role today, most likely in the passing game. This could take away a lot of plays from Hyde. In a tough matchup with the Cardinals, it’ll be hard to trust him in fantasy without his normal allotment of snaps and touches.

Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 10.

The 49ers have said they will determine Hyde's availability on Saturday. If Hyde can't go, DuJuan Harris will be San Francisco's every-down back against Arizona. If Hyde plays, we would still expect Harris to be heavily involved.
Nov 11 - 3:28 PM

Speaking Thursday, Carlos Hyde (shoulder) sounded optimistic about his odds of returning for Week 10.

"Things are going in a good direction," Hyde said. Hyde has missed the past two games, with San Francisco's bye sandwiched in between. He's yet to get in a full practice. Coach Chip Kelly hopes to know Hyde's status by Saturday. Daily Slant: For DFS players, the Carlos Hyde situation is absolutely worth tracking. Despite Arizona having one of the league's best run defenses, Hyde was still able to do plenty of damage in the first meeting between these teams, running for 78 yards and a score on 22 carries in addition to a 6-36-0 receiving line. Even in games where the 49ers are down early, they continue to feed Hyde, so he'll be a viable GPP play if he's healthy. The fact that he's banged up could lead to Chip Kelly giving some other backs work later in the game if it's not competitive, but Hyde is a fine GPP gamble at a mid-range price tag.
Nov 10 - 4:48 PM

Carlos Hyde (shoulder) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Hyde is still wearing a non-contact jersey and remains extremely questionable for Sunday's game in Arizona. Coach Chip Kelly said the team will decide his status on Saturday. DuJuan Harris would draw the start if Hyde can't go. Hyde hasn't played since Week 6.
Nov 10 - 1:59 PM

49ers coach Chip Kelly said Carlos Hyde's (shoulder) playing status will be determined on Saturday.

"He’ll go through just like he did last week," Kelly said. "It’s really range of motion and Carlos’ comfort level." Hyde should practice in a non-contact jersey again this week, and it sounds like he is at best questionable to face the Cardinals. Luckily, we should know his status well before the early games kickoff on Sunday. DuJuan Harris needs to be owned everywhere.
Nov 10 - 10:44 AM

Carlos Hyde (shoulder) remained limited at Wednesday's practice.

Hyde has been practicing for a week but has yet to be cleared for contact work. He won't be active on game day until that happens. DuJuan Harris will start again if Hyde can't get the green light Sunday at Arizona.
Nov 9 - 4:29 PM

Carlos Hyde (shoulder) was still wearing a non-contact jersey at Tuesday's practice.

It's discouraging that Hyde has yet to shed his non-contact jersey, but it's still early in the week. The Niners won't release their first injury report until Wednesday, which should give us a better idea of where Hyde is at in his recovery. He's missed the past two weeks. DuJuan Harris played well in Hyde's absence last week, and will be a low-end RB2 if forced to start against Arizona.
Nov 8 - 2:02 PM

49ers declared RB Carlos Hyde, LB Aaron Lynch, WR Keshawn Martin, QB Christian Ponder, NT Mike Purcell, CB Rashard Robinson and OL John Theus inactive for Week 9 against the Saints.

Hyde was ruled out with a shoulder injury earlier today. He's week to week. DuJuan Harris has been tabbed as the starter, though he'll likely share work with Mike Davis and Shaun Draughn. Harris offers the most fantasy appeal and should be viewed as an RB3 this week.
Nov 6 - 2:53 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is out for Week 9 against the Saints.

DuJuan Harris will draw the start in his place. Hyde returned to practice this week but wasn't cleared for contact work. The 49ers were planning to see how he looked in pre-game warmups but obviously it never came to that. Injuries continue to be the story with Hyde, who has now missed 11 games since the start of last season. Consider him week to week.
