From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 24): A quarterback change should open up a lot for Hyde in the running game. He immediately had a multi-touchdown game and should be considered a strong RB2 against the Raiders this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 3 vs NYJ (23 / 98 / 2 rush, 3 / 2 / 5 / 0 rec)

Hyde turned in his best game as a Cleveland Brown against the Jets in Week 3. The veteran running back got off to a slow start but got going with a nice 21-yard run at the end of the first quarter. He showed excellent vision with a nice cutback and followed his lead blocker for a big gain on the play. The insertion of Baker Mayfield into the starting lineup also served to assist Hyde as the defense had to account for Mayfield's arm, which opened up running lanes for Hyde to exploit. Hyde continues to operate as the team's preferred option at the goal line. On the second drive of the third quarter, Hyde saw a red zone carry on 1st-and-goal at the eight-yard line. He was stuffed on the play. He bounced back on the next possession, ripping off an 11-yard carry and finishing off the drive with a one-yard touchdown run. He showed a great second effort on the run to power his way over the goal line. Hyde was not finished there, however, as he came back in the fourth quarter to score again. At first, it appeared he had a 16-yard touchdown run but that was nullified by an illegal block in the back penalty against Jarvis Landry. Hyde wound up getting his touchdown, anyway, as he powered in another one-yard score shortly after the penalty. The presence of Mayfield represents a positive for Hyde and his rest of season outlook.

2018 Week 2 vs NO (16 / 43 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Hyde saw a heavy workload early in the game as the Browns ran often to try to keep the ball out of the hands of Drew Brees. Hyde saw 10 of his 16 rushing attempts in the first half, although he mostly struggled to get much going, picking up just 23 yards in the first two quarters. He caught just one pass, a dump-off at the line of scrimmage. He was able to turn that into a seven-yard gain. The Browns went away from the run a bit in the second half, although Hyde was his most productive during that time. The Browns called his number twice at the goal line on their scoring drive in the third quarter. He was stuffed on the first carry but he punched in a touchdown from the one-yard line on the ensuing play. Unlike his days as a 49er, the Browns are not using Hyde as a pass-catcher in their offense, which will limit his weekly upside. He still remains the team's preferred goal line running back.

2018 Week 1 vs PIT (22 / 62 / 1 rush, 2 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)

For the most part, Hyde struggled to get much going on the ground. He spent much of the afternoon getting tackled at or near the line of scrimmage. His best series came when the Browns went extremely run-heavy in the first drive of the third quarter. Hyde ripped off runs of nine, 12, and six yards to power his team down into the red zone. In all, the Browns ran on nine straight plays on that series. Hyde later scored a one-yard touchdown after a Cleveland interception put him in excellent scoring position. Hyde continues to operate as the team's clear lead back on early downs. He lost just three carries to rookie Nick Chubb in the game. Hyde was only targeted twice in the passing game and doesn't appear to be a big part of the team's plans in that phase of the game.
