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." He is expected to be ready for training camp.

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 | Carlos Hyde could be a surprise cut? (Tue Jul 25, 12:39 AM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde could be a surprise cut before the start of the regular season, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

49ers | Carlos Hyde must earning starting job (Tue Jul 11, 03:32 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde will need to earn his starting job over rookie RB Joe Williams, according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. Maiocco envisions a committee approach with RB Tim Hightower also being involved.

Our View: Fantasy owners seem split on Hyde's outlook for 2017. Some feel as the 49ers starter he's got low-end RB1 upside, while still others think he'll be unseated by Williams sooner rather than later. In the final year of his rookie contract, Hyde is a bit of an odd fit for Kyle Shanahan's zone-blocking system. The oft-injured veteran has a current ADP of RB18 (4.07) in 12-team PPR leagues. That could change drastically if we watch this battle unfold in favor of Williams (or a RBBC) in training camp and the preseason.
