Carlos Hyde rushed 23 times for 98 yards and two touchdowns in the Browns' Week 3 win over the Jets.
He added two receptions for five yards. No joke: Hyde then had to rush to the hospital for the birth of his child. Best wishes to the Hyde family. As for the game, nearly all of Hyde's damage, including both his scores, came after Baker Mayfield checked in for Tyrod Taylor (concussion). The Browns' offense looked reborn with Mayfield under center, complicating the defense's thinking and freeing up running lanes. Hyde took advantage with his trademark power running. Hyde will be an upside RB2 for a tasty Week 4 matchup with the Raiders. Sep 20 - 11:48 PM

NFL Network's Omar Ruiz reports Carlos Hyde is awaiting the birth of his child on Thursday evening but is expected to make it to FirstEnergy Stadium just before kickoff.

Aka, Hyde is going to have a police escort to the stadium. Hyde's significant other was reportedly induced last night, so it has been a long day for the Browns' feature back. As any new parent can attest, the adrenaline should be enough to get him through the game against the Jets. We are not adjusting his Week 3 rank.

Carlos Hyde rushed 16 times for 43 yards and touchdown in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Saints.

Hyde added one catch for seven yards in the passing game. It was the second-consecutive game where Hyde struggled on the ground, but was bailed out by a 1-yard rushing score, this time following a pass interference in the end zone. Hyde has now rushed 38 times for 108 yards through two games. He will remain a fringe RB2 in Week 3 versus the Jets.
Sep 16 - 4:58 PM

Browns RB Carlos Hyde rushed 22 times for 62 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 1 game versus the Steelers.

Hyde added three yards on one catch. He ran just nine times for 26 yards in the first half before having a positive drive in the 3rd quarter where he carried four times for 30 yards a touchdown. The Browns offensive line appears to be a real problem for generating consistent yardage, but Hyde handled 22-of-30 Cleveland rushing attempts to open the season. Hyde will be an RB2 option next week on the road versus the Saints.
Sep 9 - 5:55 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed seven times for 45 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles.

Hyde lost five yards on his lone reception. 33 of Hyde's yards came on a first quarter rumble where he schooled CB Jalen Mills, but big plays are a part of Hyde's game when he's healthy. "When he's healthy" the obvious and ever-present caveat for a back who finishes the preseason with a 17/108/1/6.35 slash line. Hyde is a risky pick on the RB2/3 borderline. In addition to his injury history, he has Duke Johnson monopolizing passing downs and rookie Nick Chubb waiting in the wings.
Aug 23 - 10:27 PM

Brown RB Carlos Hyde rushed nine times for 64 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game versus the Bills.

After playing just three snaps in the preseason opener a week ago, Hyde got four possessions with the first team offense. Hyde set the tone early, rushing five times for 41 yards on the opening drive of the game, capped off with a 4-yard touchdown run. Five of his nine carries went for five or more yards, including a 26-yard jaunt in which he bullied Jordan Poyer to the ground with a stiff arm. Hyde is clearly the starting running back for the Browns entering the season, providing a discounted fantasy option for owners looking for RB help in the middle of the draft.
Aug 17 - 8:48 PM

Carlos Hyde was listed as the Browns' first-team running back on the team's initial training camp depth chart.

Duke Johnson was Hyde's immediate backup while second-rounder Nick Chubb was listed as the third-string back. It's no surprise to see Hyde atop Cleveland's initial depth chart, though the rookie Chubb could push the veteran for snaps at some point. Johnson is locked in as the Browns' passing-down back.
Aug 5 - 10:04 AM

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.
Mar 1 - 11:01 AM

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.
Jan 31 - 10:56 AM

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.
