Week 12: vs Seattle Seahawks

All RB vs SEA

FBG says: Bad matchup. Carlos Hyde got going for the 49ers in their last game as he rushed for 98 yards on 17 carries, his second-highest rushing yard total of the season. The 17 carries were the most Hyde had received since Week 3 as he finally had a favorable game script for the run. Matt Breida saw 17 snaps for the second week in a row, but he received nine carries for 55 yards and a touchdown this week--with his touchdown coming on a nice 33-yard run. Hyde remains the number one back here though as Breida would need another favorable game script to cut into Hyde's workload now that he appears healthy again after the lingering hip issue. The Seahawks front seven had an outstanding performance in Week 10 as they smothered the Cardinals ground game, allowing just 34 yards on 24 rush attempts. Last week, while they allowed quite a few more yards, the Seahawks still did a very good job in limiting the Falcons run game as Tevin Coleman managed just 43 yards on 20 carries with one rushing touchdown. This 2.2 yards per attempt allowed to Coleman helps explain why the Seahawks run defense has allowed just the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing running backs this year. Led by Bobby Wagner as their best run defending linebacker and a solid front four on the defensive line, the Seahawks run defense has played progressively better as this year has evolved. Carlos Hyde may be looking forward to this week though as he had his best game of the season in Week 2 against the Seahawks. This game also happened to be the Seahawks worst game against the run, as they have only had one other running back amass over 55 yards against them since then. Don't fall into the trap of Hyde's great Week 2 performance--this run defense is playing much better now than they were earlier in the season.
