RB Carlos Hyde - Seattle Seahawks
|6-0, 235||Born: 9-20-1991||College: Ohio State||Drafted: Round 2, pick 57 (2014)|
SummaryHyde surprised in 2019 by dominating rush attempts for the Texans and finishing with over 1,000 yards on the ground for the first time in his six-year career. He was still met with an icy reception in free-agency and had to wait until late May to sign a backup deal in Seattle, his fourth team since 2017. We're likely to see Hyde spell Chris Carson on base downs until Rashaad Penny is healthy enough to return, which should equate to six-to-eight carries most weeks. There isn't much here for fantasy besides low-end value as a handcuff, with a smidgen of early-season upside if Carson isn't fully over his hip injury by Week 1. (May 23)

Latest NewsSeahawks | Carlos Hyde contract terms (Fri May 29, 12:16 PM) - Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde's one-year contract with the team has a base value of $2.75 million, which includes a $750,000 signing bonus, $1.5 million base salary and $500,000 per-game roster bonuses. The deal also includes incentives worth $1.25 million with a maximum value of $4 million. Our View: Hyde was an important piece for the Seahawks to add this offseason. He's a proven 1,000-yard rusher who could start and be productive if called upon. In Seattle, Hyde is going to be a valuable reserve behind starter Chris Carson.
link to story Seahawks | Carlos Hyde officially signs with SEA (Thu May 28, 04:54 PM) - Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Texans) officially signed with the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, May 28. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed. Our View: We've known about this deal for some time and today it became official. Hyde had 1,000 yards rushing for the Texans last year but failed to get much interest in free agency. Seattle needed to sign him as a backup to Chris Carson since Rashaad Penny is likely to be on the PUP list to begin the regular season. Hyde (shoulder) played much of the 2019 season with a torn labrum and underwent surgery in February.
link to story Seahawks | Carlos Hyde to complement Chris Carson (Tue May 26, 06:59 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde is expected to complement RB Chris Carson with early-down work in 2020, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. Our View: That sounds about right. The Seahawks needed someone to back up Carson with former first-round pick Rashaad Penny expected to be placed on the PUP list to begin the regular season. Hyde is coming off a 1,000-yard season with the Texans in 2019 and has a running style similar to that of Carson.
link to story Seahawks | Carlos Hyde had surgery (Fri May 22, 10:21 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) played much of the 2019 season with a torn labrum and underwent surgery in February. Our View: The truth comes out now about Hyde. He is coming off a 1,000-yard season with the Texans but couldn't find a new team until now. His shoulder must've checked out (or been a non-issue) for the Seahawks to sign him on Friday.
link to story Seahawks | Carlos Hyde to join Seahawks (Fri May 22, 06:08 PM) - Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Texans) agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Friday, May 22, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. Our View: Hyde fits the hard-hitting rushing attack the Seahawks have with starter Chris Carson. The team needed help in the backfield since former first-round pick Rashaad Penny is unlikely to be ready for the start of the regular season. Hyde had over 1,000 yards rushing last year for the Texans but will serve as a backup to Carson in 2020.
