49ers RB Carlos Hyde blamed his recent struggles on opposing defenses stacking the box.
"They brought the safeties down, played a zero look a lot," Hyde said. "They brought extra defenders in the box. It’s hard to run against eight or nine guys in the box." It would be easy to paint the comment as sour grapes from a struggling back, but Hyde is right. Opposing defenses do not respect Colin Kaepernick's ability to throw outside the numbers, allowing them to key on the run. Hyde managed just 20 yards on eight carries Week 4 against the Packers and has just 114 yards total since his 168-yard, two-touchdown explosion Week 1. Oct 5 - 11:17 AM

Carlos Hyde rushed eight times for 20 yards in San Francisco's Week 4 loss to the Packers.

Hyde added a two-yard reception. Like every one of his starts since Week 1, Hyde found himself bottled up as the defense declined to respect Colin Kaepernick's "passing ability." Along the same lines, the 49ers again had to abandon the run. Hyde has shown impressive on-field ability, but his role is in the gutter along with his team. He's becoming hard to trust as an RB2 simply because Kaep will never allow him to get into a rhythm. On pace for 1,128 yards and eight touchdowns, Hyde gets the Giants next Sunday evening.
Oct 4 - 7:48 PM

Carlos Hyde managed 51 yards on 15 carries and caught his lone target for 10 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Cardinals.

He was also tackled for a safety. Although Hyde generally looked spry and powerful on his carries, game flow absolutely killed him for the second straight week as Arizona jumped out to a massive early-game lead. When Reggie Bush (calf) returns, Hyde may be relegated to two-down duties on a bad team. That's a big concern for Hyde's fantasy outlook moving forward. Game flow seems likely to become an issue again in Week 4, when the 49ers face the Packers. Since looking like a surefire RB1 in Week 1 against Minnesota, Hyde has fallen well back into the RB2 ranks.
Sep 27 - 7:06 PM

Carlos Hyde (thigh) is listed as probable for Week 3.

Hyde missed the second half of last week's game, but his Week 3 status was never in doubt. He's Rotoworld's No. 12 running back for Week 3.
Sep 25 - 5:13 PM

Carlos Hyde (thigh) practiced in full on Wednesday.

Hyde missed the second half of last week's game as a precaution. He's avoided a concussion, and his thigh injury isn't considered serious. Hyde should be all systems go for Sunday's matchup with Arizona.
Sep 23 - 5:50 PM

Carlos Hyde will be "closely monitored" with a thigh contusion this week.

Hyde's thigh is a new issue after talk of a concussion dominated his Sunday. Hyde did take a huge lower-body shot before departing, however. There's little reason to believe Hyde will miss Sunday's game against Arizona, but we'll update his status when the 49ers return to practice on Wednesday.
Sep 21 - 3:31 PM

49ers coach Jim Tomsula indicated Carlos Hyde (head) was held out of the second half of Sunday's loss as a precaution.

"He was evaluated for a head injury," Tomsula said following the 49ers' 43-18 loss to the Steelers. "He was cleared, but (we) opted not to put him in." Hyde admitted to feeling "dizzy" after taking a hit early in the third quarter. It sounds like he should be all systems go for Week 3 at Arizona.
Sep 20 - 8:39 PM

Carlos Hyde was cleared after being taken to the locker room with a possible concussion in Sunday's Week 2 game against the Steelers.

He returned to the sideline, but rookie Mike Davis served as the 49ers' primary back in the final two quarters. Hyde lost a fumble late in the second quarter, and got buried by game flow in addition to nicks and bruises as Pittsburgh jumped out to a huge lead. The underrated Steelers run defense also got consistent backfield penetration against San Francisco's makeshift offensive line, with gap-shooting ILB Ryan Shazier leading the charge. Hyde finished with 43 yards on 14 carries and four catches for 18 yards. The 49ers head to Arizona next.
Sep 20 - 3:59 PM

Carlos Hyde went to the 49ers' locker room in the third quarter of Sunday's Week 2 game with a possible concussion.

Hyde was banged up throughout the contest before exiting, and got replaced by rookie Mike Davis on a goal-line series late in the third quarter. Hyde's return is questionable. He had 43 yards on 15 carries and four catches for 18 yards before walking off the field. Hyde's gait looked fine as he made his way to the locker room, but he appeared dazed and was moving slow.
Sep 20 - 3:06 PM

Carlos Hyde blew up for 168 yards on 26 carries with two touchdowns and caught two passes for 14 yards in the 49ers' Week 1 win over the Vikings.

Hyde ate up huge chunks of yards all night, gashing the Vikes for 116 yards on 19 carries in the second half. His first touchdown of the night is sure to end up on the highlight reels. Hyde went right, then spun to his left for a brilliant 10-yard touchdown. He put the game on ice by following his blocks to another impressive score in the fourth quarter. We’re buying Hyde as an every-week RB1 while Reggie Bush is out with a calf injury. He’ll get the Steelers in Week 2.
Sep 15 - 1:26 AM

Carlos Hyde averaged 6.0 yards per carry on read-option plays last season.

Hyde's strong preseason has been one of the 49ers’ only bright spots. With Colin Kaepernick projected to run more, he’s a good bet to improve on last year’s 4.0 YPC. Hyde’s biggest concern is his two-down role on a team that will be playing from behind most weeks. Rotoworld ranks Hyde as the No. 16 running back for Week 1.
Sep 12 - 4:57 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed four times for 28 yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

Hyde was the lone bright spot on the 49ers offense. He bounced off several tacklers on his 17-yard run and once again looked quick. Hyde could be hurt by the lack of talent around him on offense and the negative game scripts the 49ers are likely to find themselves in this season, but he has shown enough to be considered a low-end RB2. Hyde has 13 carries for 73 yards (5.61 YPC) this preseason.
Aug 29 - 11:45 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed seven times for 39 yards and caught a six-yard pass in the 49ers' second preseason game Sunday night.

He's up to 45 yards on nine carries (5.0 YPC) through two preseason affairs. Hyde's teammates are a concern, but so far he has been mostly impressive in the month of August. He's a low-end RB2 fantasy pick with upside for more.
Aug 23 - 10:14 PM

The MMQB's Peter King expects Carlos Hyde to see around 250 carries this season.

Only eight running backs had over 250 carries last year. It suggests the 49ers see Hyde as their workhorse, with Reggie Bush only cutting into his workload on pass downs. Hyde operated as an every-down back in the preseason opener, and remains the frontrunner to lead the backfield in touches.
Aug 21 - 10:09 PM

Carlos Hyde started and rushed twice for six yards in the 49ers' preseason opener Saturday night.

Hyde operated as the 49ers' every-down back with the first-team offense, while Reggie Bush and Kendall Hunter were held out. Hyde had an excellent blitz pickup on San Francisco's opening drive, but managed gains of 3 and 3 yards on the ground. Hyde is the 49ers' early-down back, quite clearly, but remains in danger of losing significant passing-game work to Bush and/or Hunter.
