Hyde torn an MCL in his knee in Week 16 of the 2016 season, but did not have the injury surgically repaired. He was not back to full health as of April 11, 2017, saying "I can cut, just not all the way I like to run, but I'm making improvement."

Summary

You can't say Hyde outright lacks talent - he did manage 88.5 scrimmage yards per game and 4.6 yards per rush in last year's dreadful 49ers offense. Still, the peripheral concerns are almost too big to ignore. First and foremost, in a Brian Hoyer-led offense that lacks passing-game talent and won't produce many touchdown opportunities, few backs carry safe fantasy value. He's not an impressive receiver, and he'll probably find himself on the sideline in most passing situations beyond early-down checkdowns. Furthermore, Hyde has been ravaged by a variety of injuries as a pro, missing 14 of 48 games and parts of others. There's also major concern over his fit in Kyle Shanahan's zone-read run game; Hyde is a power back, and rumors are already swirling over his ultimate backfield role. Shanahan hand-picked Utah's Joe Williams in this year's third round, and some are expecting an early-season timeshare. The bottom line on Hyde is that there's real potential in play - Shanahan's lead backs traditionally post strong volume - but gobs and gobs of downside. The answer will, as usual, probably land somewhere in the middle, but at this point it's fair to wonder whether it'll be closer to his ceiling or his floor. I'm not expecting much, and I'm not targeting Hyde as a fantasy RB2 with any degree of confidence. (May 21)

49ers | Joe Williams has chance to start in 2017 (Wed May 17, 01:46 PM) - San Francisco 49ers fourth-round pick RB Joe Williams has a 'legitimate chance' to 'immediately unseat' RB Carlos Hyde as the team's top running back this season, according to CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.

Our View: The 49ers new regime doesn't seem to be enamored with Hyde at all. He's in the final year of his contract, but the 49ers may move him behind Williams on the depth chart. Williams is a runner who can create space for himself in a variety of ways. He's got burst to and through the hole, and he can make defenders miss in the open field. Williams is not a third-down back, but he can lead the way in a RBBC as the featured runner.
