Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 14 vs TEN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / -3 / 0 rec)
Hyde was irrelevant with the Jaguars unable to establish the run or build a lead in this game.
2018 Week 13 vs IND (13 / 36 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
TJ Yeldon got the start, but the Jaguars tried to run a fair amount of their offense through Hyde. He fumbled on the third play of the game. The dropoff from Leonard Fournette to Hyde was noticeable in this game. They tried mostly slamming him up inside from heavier formations, and the Colts defense stopped it easily.
2018 Week 12 vs BUF (10 / 33 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Hyde mainly got spell duty until the 4th quarter after Fournette was ejected. He will probably get a significant of work next week with Fournette serving a suspension and Cody Kessler making his first start for the Jaguars. He has actually been really good for the Jaguars as a spell RB, even though the acquisition of him came from questionable motives (the GM freaking out with Fournette out and wanting to give Bortles every possible chance to fail).
2018 Week 11 vs PIT (8 / 44 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
In the two games following the addition of Carlos Hyde to the Jaguars' offense, Hyde was sparingly used and ineffective. This changed on Sunday when he received more touches than T.J. Yeldon, and was effective with each of them. Hyde's usage in the second half dwindled because the Jaguars committed to featuring Leonard Fournette, but he was one of the sole reasons the Jaguars scored nine points in the first half. He hit the gaps with burst and aggression and did not go down on first contact on any of his eight carries except for two. He did not make an impact in the passing game, but he provided a 1-2 physical punch with Fournette that the team has been trying to create all season. Expect him to continue to gain touches over the course of the season.
2018 Week 8 vs PHI (6 / 11 / 0 rush, 2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The Jaguars gave Hyde a lot of snaps early and tried to feed him before the game script situation could get out of control on them as it has for the past month. He did very little with his work, totaling out with 6 carries for 11 yards. The Eagles defensive line dominated the Jaguars running game, and the Jags abandoned it pretty early once they went down in the second quarter. He was also abysmal in pass protection, being responsible for at least one sack and giving up some other pressures.
2018 Week 6 vs LAC (14 / 34 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The Browns continued to use Hyde mostly on rushes up the middle on early downs. It was a slow day for Hyde, who was mostly ignored once the game got away from Cleveland. His best run of the day came in the first quarter and went for 20 yards but the play was nullified by a face mask penalty on one of his teammates. Hyde did get most of the red zone work, as usual, but was unable to find the end zone in this contest. He saw a red zone carry from the Los Angeles 19-yard line and was able to gain five yards. He later got a carry on 1st-and-goal from the Los Angeles one-yard line in the fourth quarter but was stuffed by the defense. Hyde was not targeted in the passing game as the Browns continue to mostly ignore him in that department. His weekly floor remains relatively low in weeks that he doesn't score.
2018 Week 5 vs BAL (17 / 63 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
There were concerns that Carlos Hyde would start to lose carries to rookie Nick Chubb after Week 4, but that was not the case against Baltimore in Week 5. Hyde saw 17 carries to Chubb's three and continues to operate as the team's clear lead back. Hyde caught a short pass and turned it into a nine-yard gain on the first play of the game. He ran hard throughout the contest, breaking tackles and fighting for extra yards. He saw one red zone carry on the second drive of the third quarter but he was stuffed on the play. Hyde isn't catching passes the way he did for San Francisco in 2017 but it is clear that the Browns like to use him when they get into scoring position.
2018 Week 4 vs OAK (22 / 82 / 1 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The Browns continued to insist on running Hyde up the middle, especially on early downs. Two of Hyde's first few carries in the first quarter were such runs, which went for little or no gain. Hyde did have a first-quarter run of about ten yards nullified by an offensive holding penalty. He saw plenty of red zone work in this game, as has been the trend through his first four games as a Brown. On the third drive of the first quarter, Hyde saw three red zone carries, ultimately getting the ball down to the two-yard line on his final tote. Hyde did find the end zone in the fourth quarter, getting two consecutive goal line carries. He was stuffed on the first before powering his way into the end zone on the second. That gives Hyde five scores in four games with Cleveland as he has seen plenty of goal line work thus far. With 1:38 left in the game, he was involved in a controversial call with the Browns trying to run out the clock with a 42-34 lead. On third down, Hyde appeared to have a first down but the booth called for a review and the spot was changed, forcing the Browns to punt on fourth down. Hyde continues to hold off rookie Nick Chubb for lead back duties, although Chubb made things interesting with two long touchdown runs in Week 4. For now, Hyde's arrow continues to point up as he should keep seeing frequent red zone opportunities in an up-and-coming offense.
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.

Our View: Hyde should see more action...but he's still working in a RBBC with T.J. Yeldon this week. He's played about 12 snaps on average over the last three games, but Hyde should see an increase against the Colts on Sunday. We feel Hyde could produce like a RB3/deep flex play for Fantasy GMs.
