From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Hyde is playing the best football of his career. He'll be held back by Brian Hoyer and this offense, but they won't stop him from being an everyweek start in fantasy leagues. The 49ers defense is at least showing enough ability and effort to keep games close against weaker offenses.

Week 3: vs Los Angeles Rams

All RB vs LAR

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Carlos Hyde had his way with a stout Seahawks rushing defense last week, rambling off 124 rushing yards on 15 carries, including a 61-yard scamper that definitely padded his overall yardage total. Even without that long carry, Hyde was averaging over four yards per attempt against a defense that allowed only 3.4 yards per attempt last season. Hyde routinely shed tacklers and showed his elusiveness throughout the day while serving as a true dual-threat option due to his contributions in the receiving game. The 49ers offensive line turned in a great performance here also, with both tackles providing excellent run blocking. Left tackle Joe Staley, in particular, provided the block that set up Hyde's 61-yard run, while right tackle Trent Brown is really coming on strong in his third NFL season, playing well in the first two games this year. The Rams front seven has been a solid group after ranking second in rushing defense in 2016, but they really struggled last week against a mediocre Redskins rushing offense even with Aaron Donald's return in this game after missing the season opener. The Rams allowed the trio of Redskins backs to rush for a whopping 222 yards and two touchdowns, good for just over 6.1 yards per carry. While the interior of their defensive line has played solid, the Rams linebackers had a very tough time last week missing tackles left and right. Their poor performance against the run downgrades the Rams slightly, but with some slightly improved linebacker play, this unit has what it takes to be very tough on the run.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs SEA (15 / 124 / 0 rush, 6 / 3 / 19 / 0 rec)

Hyde once again confirmed that he's the bellcow back in San Francisco -- and deservedly so. Playing 82 percent of snaps necessarily means he had to have been on the field for most passing downs, but Hyde was actually featured as a receiver. Brian Hoyer's blind spot led to Hyde's first target being intercepted, but lining up in the slot against a linebacker was/is a mismatch Kyle Shanahan seems eager to exploit. As a runner, although Hyde did display his usual modicum of broken tackles throughout the game, his two highlight-reel carries -- accounting for 88 of his 124 rushing yards -- were more of the "untouched" variety thanks to his offensive line and a great kick-out block by fullback Kyle Juszczyk.

2017 Week 1 vs CAR (9 / 45 / 0 rush, 6 / 6 / 32 / 0 rec)

Hyde was primed for a big game, but the 49ers couldn't sustain drives and get him in a rhythm. He got to the second level on multiple runs and ran with great burst and power. The Panthers tough linebackers met him with equal force at the end of runs to limit his yards after contact. Hyde was used more as a receiver in the second half and looked good in the role. He was the red zone offense on a late drive deep into Panthers territory but couldn't crack the Panthers defense for a score.
