2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the more highly-touted fantasy rookies coming into the 2014 season, itís hard to not be disappointed about what Carlos Hyde actually produced. Hyde primarily played as the backup to Frank Gore throughout the season, finishing with 333 yards on 83 carries, a 4.0 yards per carry average. The yards per carry itself isnít too worrisome, but the fact that he was fresh for the vast majority of his carries throughout the season and still barely cracked four yards per carry has to give fantasy owners some pause heading into the 2015 season, where he is expected to be the 49ersí primary ball carrier.

With Gore now in Indianapolis, the second-year back, Hyde, will have a chance to prove he was worth a second-round draft pick a year ago. Gore took the eighth-highest number of carries of any back a season ago, and thereís little reason to believe that the 49ers wonít again rely heavily on the run. This bodes well for Hydeís chances to have a solid season, as he is almost a lock to touch the ball 180-plus times. Unfortunately for him, he will likely lose some touches to offseason acquisition Reggie Bush, particularly on third down. Hyde did make a few catches in 2014, but heís still primarily a first- and second-down back. Given his lack of production as a rookie, itís a little surprising to see Hyde going as high as he is, but itís all about opportunity. With Hyde likely to be the primary ball carrier on a run-heavy team, he should be a safe option to be a productive RB2 this season with RB1 upside.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Carlos Hyde suffers multiple injuries in Week 2
Week 1 star avoided concussion, dealing with thigh contusion
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 21, 6:05 pm

San Francisco
Carlos Hyde exited the game Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the third quarter and was cleared to return after testing negative for a possible concussion. Hyde returned to the 49ers' sideline in the fourth quarter. He did not return to action. "I got hit on the crown of my helmet, so I was dizzy when I got up. I felt better when I got to the sideline. The concussion test, I passed that and I was ready to go but they decided to pull me." (CSN Bay Area)

FFToday's Take: While it's good to know that Hyde avoided a head injury, he reportedly suffered a thigh bruise prior to departing and those injuries can be difficult for running back to shake off. The Niners stated that Hyde's status - regarding his leg contusion - will be "closely monitored throughout the week". Mike Davis did not fare well in relief of Hyde and San Francisco's Week 2 loss and it may be too much to ask for either one to have a big game against Arizona in Week 3.

Injury Reggie Bush to sit out of tilt with Steelers
49ers' RB dealing with calf strain
By: John Canario | Fri Sep 18, 4:35 pm

San Francisco
Reggie Bush, who suffered a left calf strain in the San Francisco 49ers' season-opening win against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night, will not travel with the team to Pittsburgh for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Niners coach Jim Tomsula announced Friday. "We're going to leave him back here, let him get the treatment," Tomsula said. "Make sure it's 100 percent before we move [forward with him] there. Feel great about it being 100 percent fast too." Bush had not practiced this week but was seen walking without a limp in the team's locker room Thursday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Under the bright lights of Monday night football, Carlos Hyde showed that he's a more than capable workhorse back, taking 26 totes for 168 yards and a pair of TDs. While Bush is out, Hyde should remain in line for 25-plus touches per game, and is always a must-start.

Injury RB Kendall Hunter placed on IR
Still recovering from ACL injury last season
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Sep 5, 3:45 pm

San Francisco
Kendall Hunter is headed back to injured reserve. Hunter missed all of last season with a torn ACL, but was able to return to practice this summer and played in the teamís final two preseason games. Apparently that wasnít enough to convince the team that heís well enough to help them this season and the 2011 fourth-rounder will miss a second straight year. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Carlos Hyde, Reggie Bush and Mike Davis are now locked in as the No.1, No.2, and No.3 running backs respectively for the 49ers.

Rugby star turned RB continues to shine for 49ers
Shifty runner Jarryd Hayne giving his all to earn roster spot
By: John Canario | Fri Sep 4, 4:00 pm

San Francisco
Only a few weeks ago, former Australian Rugby League player Jarryd Hayne was a blip on the NFL map. Predicted to bomb out in his rookie preseason with the San Francisco 49ers, Hayne instead has been doing everything right to assure him a final spot in the roster. Thursday night he did it again, running up the sideline before pummeling cornerback Lowell Rose. The move, known as a shoulder charge down under, has been banned in rugby league due to its dangerous nature. Hayne did more than just run over players, he also showed some nifty moves and agility to break off a big run. (SB Nation)

FFToday's Take: Hayne has amassed 175 rushing yards on 25 carries this preseason, good for an impressive 7.0 yards per carry. His inexperience playing football is going to limit any fantasy value he might otherwise have had, but he might be a name worth remembering should Carlos Hyde and Reggie Bush both prove ineffective.

Niners will use camp to figure out backfield
OC: Does not want "tightly defined roles" at RB
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 3, 9:30 pm

San Francisco
San Francisco 49ers new OC Geep Chryst has no idea how the 49ers will ultimately attempt to replace RB Frank Gore, who was the main man in the teamís backfield for nearly all of his 10-year run with the franchise. ďThatís what we need camp to find out,Ē Chryst said. Carlos Hyde will get an opportunity to be the featured back, but Chryst said he does not want tightly defined roles. He wants Hyde, Reggie Bush, Kendall Hunter and Mike Davis to be able to thrive in different roles. (CSN Bay Area)

FFToday's Take: Hyde seems to be a good bet to command early-down work and his fantasy upside could be his current fourth-round ADP, but the odds of him serving as the featured back aren't going to be particularly good since Bush has been one of the better passing-game weapons at running back for several years. The Niners also figure to be trailing more often than they have in recent seasons, which is another reason to let someone else use an early pick on the second-year back.
