Carlos Hyde is the early favorite to open the season as Cleveland's starting running back.
Hyde's veteran status gives him the edge over second-rounder Nick Chubb. His contract may also play a role after the Browns gave him $5 million guaranteed this offseason. ESPN's Tony Grossi expects Chubb to spell Hyde early in the season. Hyde figures to be on a short leash if he wins the Week 1 job. Jun 9 - 1:27 PM

Browns agreed to terms with RB Carlos Hyde, formerly of the 49ers, on a three-year, $15 million contract.

This feels like spending money just to spend it. Hyde went to Ohio State and is from the state, so it's a homecoming of sorts for him. However, he isn't all that different from ex-Brown Isaiah Crowell, who left for the Jets on Tuesday and wasn't used often enough by coach Hue Jackson. The Browns also have Duke Johnson and have been linked to Saquon Barkley at the top of the draft. Hyde is now a top-eight-paid running back in the NFL at $5 million annually. It's going to be really hard to get behind him in fantasy after seeing Crowell's usage last season.

49ers GM John Lynch said "discussions are ongoing" with impending free agent Carlos Hyde.

Lynch also said the 49ers talked to Hyde throughout the season, however, and added nothing is "imminent" between the two sides. Despite the talks, it still seems extremely likely Hyde hits the open market. Hyde gained 1,288 yards from scrimmage and caught 59 passes in 2017, both career-highs.

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows believes the odds are high free agent Carlos Hyde leaves the 49ers.

The Niners didn't seem all that committed to Hyde throughout coach Kyle Shanahan's first year in charge. Hyde lost reps to UDFA Matt Breida, and Hyde's receiving numbers really fell off once Jimmy Garoppolo took over. However, Hyde did have some solid rushing days -- 14-78-1 and 15-90-2 -- with Garoppolo. We tend to side with Barrows here; Hyde can likely command more outside of San Fran.

Carlos Hyde rushed 15 times for 90 yards and two touchdowns while adding 10 yards receiving on two catches in Sunday's Week 17 win against the Rams.

Hyde finishes the season with 940 rushing yards on 240 carries and eight touchdowns. His rushing yardage was lower than the 988 yards he posted last year on just 215 carries as his efficiency dropped. His 3.9 YPC were the lowest mark of his career, but Hyde made up for that with a career-year in the touchdown department to go along with catching the ball out of the backfield, snagging 57 passes for 340 yards. This was Hyde’s final season on his rookie contract as he will hit unrestricted free agency this offseason. A return to San Francisco would be ideal for retaining his current fringe-RB1 fantasy status, but his landing spot in free agency will play a large role in how he’s regarded for fantasy purposes heading into 2018.

Carlos Hyde rushed 21 times for 54 yards and a touchdown and caught 3-of-3 targets for 19 yards in the 49ers' Week 16 win over the Jaguars.

It was a highly inefficient effort from Hyde, who struggled to find open running lanes but did turn in an RB2-caliber fantasy effort by way of sheer volume and his goal-line score. Hyde may play his final game in a 49ers uniform when San Francisco visits the Rams in Week 17. Hyde is up for free agency in March.

Carlos Hyde rushed 16 times for 25 yards in the 49ers' Week 15 win over the Titans, adding two receptions for 14 additional yards.

It was one of Hyde's 2-3 worst games of the season, but the 49ers rode Jimmy Garoppolo's arm to a narrow victory. Hyde's stats have been worse since Garoppolo took over, which is surprising since the 49ers' offense has been much smoother overall. One of the main reasons for Hyde's statistical downtick is that Garoppolo isn't checking down to him nearly as often as Brian Hoyer and C.J. Beathard did. Hyde has only five catches in three games with Garoppolo at quarterback. Hyde will be a low-end RB2 for Week 16 against the Jaguars.

Carlos Hyde rushed 14 times for 78 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Week 14 win over the Texans.

Hyde’s stat line did not look great early, but he got things going in the second quarter. He finished a long drive with a two-yard touchdown run, and he kicked off a successful two-minute march with a 31-yard scamper up the sideline. He was mostly shut down in the second half, however, and saw fewer than three targets for only the second time this season. Matt Breida also stole 12 carries for the second game in a row. With the Titans' good run defense up next, Hyde will be just a back-end RB2.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 04:42:00 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed 17 times for 54 yards and caught 3-of-5 targets for 12 yards in the 49ers' Week 13 win over the Bears.

Hyde got his best touchdown chance on the 49ers' final drive, but he was buried in the backfield, and San Francisco kneeled a play later before Robbie Gould kicked the game-winning field goal. Hyde remained the 49ers' primary back, but it's notable that Matt Breida swiped 13 touches and has stayed involved as a change-up option. Hyde will still be a solid RB2 play in Week 14 at Houston.

Carlos Hyde rushed 16 times for 47 yards and caught 7-of-13 passes for 21 yards in the 49ers' Week 12 loss to the Seahawks.

Hyde was completely shut down in the first half, rushing for just nine yards on eight carries and catching just 3-of-8 targets for ONE yard. He made up for it on the opening drive of the second half with 38 yards on seven carries to help set up a field goal. That was about all the success he could muster, however, in a game the 49ers struggled to do much. Hyde should have more success next week in Chicago.

Carlos Hyde rushed 17 times for 98 yards in the 49ers' Week 10 win over the Giants, adding two receptions for six additional yards.

The 98 yards rushing were Hyde's second most of the season, though the two receptions were also his fewest in five games, and second fewest of the year. With the 49ers controlling the game, Matt Breida was worked in liberally, touching the ball 10 times and scoring a 33-yard touchdown. Although matchups haven't mattered much for Hyde because of how often he's catching the ball, the Seahawks will be a daunting Week 12 opponent when the 49ers come off bye.

Carlos Hyde was ejected late in the fourth quarter Week 9 against the Cardinals for fighting.

Hyde did not do much in a scrum following a late hit on C.J. Beathard, but he was ejected anyway. He racked up 41 yards on 12 carries and 84 yards on a team-high nine catches before being tossed, with several of those receptions coming as the 49ers were in comeback mode late in the game. Hyde also could have had a touchdown, but he was vultured at the goal line by Beathard. Assuming he is not suspended -- it would be a miscarriage of justice if he was -- Hyde will be a good play against a struggling Giants defense next week.

Carlos Hyde rushed 12 times for 25 yards in the 49ers' Week 8 loss to the Eagles.

Hyde led the team with nine targets in the pass game, but he caught just four of them for 22 yards. A ton of those passes were off-target throws from rookie C.J. Beathard, who was consistently throwing behind his receivers, forcing them to contort their bodies to make tough catches. Hyde seemed to get phased out a bit in the second half, with Matt Breida turning a shovel pass into a 21-yard touchdown and getting several more looks in the red zone late in the game. Hyde will look to bounce back next week at home against Arizona.

Carlos Hyde rushed 14 times for 68 yards in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to the Cowboys.

Hyde added four receptions for 20 additional yards. Hyde's day was pretty solid all things considered, as the 49ers stuck with the running game even in a blowout. Hyde was on the field until almost the game's final moments. He also finally appeared to be over his hip injury, ripping a number of chunk gains. With the Matt Breida episode long in the rear-view mirror, Hyde will remain locked in as an RB2 for Week 8 against the Eagles.
Sun, Oct 22, 2017 07:24:00 PM

Carlos Hyde played 56 offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Redskins.

Undrafted rookie Matt Breida was limited to 17 snaps in the loss. Hyde was bottled up on the ground Sunday, but still scored a pair of touchdowns while playing an integral role in the passing game with five catches for 47 yards. Coach Kyle Shanahan had suggested the Niners would go with a hot hand approach at running back and apparently Hyde had it on on Sunday. There have been rumblings that San Francisco is shopping Hyde (an impending free agent), so it's possible the team is showcasing him in anticipation of a trade with the October 31 deadline fast approaching. Hyde gets the Cowboys in Week 7.
