2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
A dominant college running back with tremendous NFL upside, Carlos Hyde finds himself in an excellent position for the future … but make sure that you understand that we are talking about the future. Hyde should be drafted as a late-round flier who has the possibility of becoming a major contributor should Gore suffer an untimely injury. Unless that happens, though, Hyde will likely be limited to a 5-10 touch per game role, which of course puts a damper on his fantasy upside. If Hyde does somehow come out with the starting job, though, he could be an absolute beast in this offense. San Francisco has a top-level offensive line and Frank Gore is beginning to slow down toward the end of his career, but the expectations still need to be kept in check for this rookie tailback.

Comment: Hyde would need a Gore injury to have any real fantasy impact in 2014.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury LaMichael James out with dislocated elbow
Expected to miss four weeks
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jul 27, 8:00 pm

San Francisco
Running back LaMichael James was carted off the field Sunday after he suffered an injury to his left arm early in practice. NFL Network reported that James suffered a dislocated elbow and that he is expected to miss a month or so. (San Jose Mercury News)

FFToday's Take: The 49ers running back corps has taken a beating the last couple days. Kendall Hunter (ACL) will miss the entire season and now it appears James will miss a good chunk of training camp. Frank Gore and rookie Carlos Hyde continue to be the fantasy running backs to own in San Francisco with Marcus Lattimore (knee) being a wildcard. Lattimore remains on the non-football-injury list.


Injury Kendall Hunter tears ACL, out for the season
Injured during non-contact drill
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jul 26, 12:45 pm

San Francisco
Running back Kendall Hunter tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee Friday at practice, the team confirmed Saturday morning. Candidates to fill the 49ers’ No. 2 tailback job are LaMichael James, Carlos Hyde, Jewell Hampton and Marcus Lattimore, who’s on the non-football-injury list but has been doing conditioning drills on a side field in camp. (San Jose Mercury News)

FFToday's Take: Hunter is a key part to the 49ers offense, able to spell Frank Gore on early downs as well as play on third downs in a receiving role. Hyde will be the favorite to become the No.2 running back but this injury might breathe some life into LaMichael James who had been rumored to be on the outs in San Francisco. Hunter averaged 80.5 touches the last two seasons.


Injury Lattimore placed on non-football injury list
RB was cleared for full practice in offseason
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 17, 7:25 pm

San Francisco
RB Marcus Lattimore, who was cleared to resume full practice in the offseason, was one of six players declared on the non-football injury list to open training camp. The 49ers’ rookies reported to training camp on Wednesday. Lattimore was allowed to report with the rookies because he does not have an accrued year of NFL service after spending his rookie season on the NFI list due to a knee injury he sustained during his final season at South Carolina. (CSN Bay Area)

FFToday's Take: The NFI and physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) lists are procedural lists from which a player can be removed at any time to begin practice, so the Niners could just be playing it safe with Lattimore. However, it would have been a more positive sign to begin camp without limitations. Rookie Carlos Hyde continues to enjoy a clear lead over Lattimore in the race to be Frank Gore's handcuff.


Hyde has chance at "big" playing time in 2014
Has reportedly shined in offseason workouts
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 23, 3:55 pm

San Francisco
Carlos Hyde: The running back has shined out of the backfield as a runner and as receiver. I expect the Ohio State product to get a chance to get big playing time right away. He was considered a steal at No. 57 on draft night and he's still looking like one. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Frank Gore is 31 and tailed off badly as last season wore down, Kendall Hunter has been used primarily as a change-of-pace back and Marcus Lattimore is still being brought along slowly from the serious knee injuries he suffered in college. In other words, Hyde has a realistic shot to be a solid rookie contributor if the Niners are willing to cut back on Gore's workload and Lattimore isn't all the way back yet in another month.
