Summary

Hyde earned a free agent contract and the starting job in Cleveland only to find himself in the middle of an internal power struggle between Hue Jackson and Todd Haley. The offense suffered and once the Browns front office cleaned house, it also sent Hyde packing for Jacksonville--a team with a struggling quarterback and injured offensive line. It was Hyde's second team within the span of a year where he was playing in a hamstrung offense. While possible that Hyde has also declined as a player, it didn't appear that way during the preseason. Although the Chiefs lost two offensive linemen, including stalwart center Mitch Morse--there's enough talent remaining to build effective continuity. If this happens and Hyde's woes were related to his surroundings rather than a decline of his talents, he could easily win a share of the Chiefs' workload and provide fantasy starter production. Andy Reid has recently confirmed the Chiefs backfield will be a committee and Hyde has performed well during training camp. (August 9)

Chiefs | Carlos Hyde making most of reps (Sun Aug 4, 12:12 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs RB Carlos Hyde has seen increased reps with the first team with RB Damien Williams currently sidelined with a hamstring injury. 'Carlos has done a nice job,' head coach Andy Reid said. 'He's getting a lot of reps and he's taking advantage of them.'

Our View: One Chiefs beat writer and Gregg Rosenthal both raised the possibility of Hyde not making the team, but these positive words from the coach seem to downplay that doomsday scenario. He still deserves to be the second Chiefs back off of the board, but Darwin Thompson and Darrel Williams need to stay on our waiver wire watch lists, and maybe even on our late round target lists in deeper leagues.
