RB Carlos Hyde - Houston Texans
|6-0, 235||Born: 9-20-1991||College: Ohio State||Drafted: Round 2, pick 2014|
Week 11: at Baltimore Ravens - $4600
FBG says: Tough matchup. Texans running back Carlos Hyde had a full extra week to bask in what was one of the top games of his career as he ran for 160 yards on 19 carries against Jacksonville in Week 9. Hyde has been receiving a very steady workload all season long as the lead running back for Houston, averaging 16.6 carries per game with a season average of 4.7 yards per attempt. Duke Johnson has been the clear secondary running back in terms of rushing usage, averaging fewer than six carries per game with just three games in which he has rushed for more than 50 yards--none of which have come within his last four outings. The Texans offensive line certainly needed a bye week as they had both starting tackles banged up leading into Week 10. Right tackle Tytus Howard looked healthy in his Week 9 return, while left tackle Laremy Tunsil missed Week 9 but expects to suit up in this one. Tackle is the strength of what has been an evolving offensive line trending in the right direction prior to these injuries. With all five starters back and rested, this should at least be an average unit. While the Ravens defense allowed Joe Mixon to run for 114 yards last week, it came on the heels of 30 carries (just 3.8 yards per attempt) and during a blowout Baltimore win in which some of this defense saw some rest. Overall, the Ravens have been very strong against the run for most of the season outside of Week 4 against the Browns. They have allowed just one rushing touchdown to running backs in their last four games and given up the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position over that span--which includes the big game from Mixon last week. They have a solid defensive interior anchored by spectacular play from nose tackle Brandon Williams. Right tackle Michael Pierce has also been having a great season, but he suffered an ankle injury that has him day-to-day coming into Sunday. While the absence of Pierce would be concerning, the Ravens have solid depth behind him. Linebacker Josh Bynes has also been a big reason for this unit's success against the run while this secondary has chipped in well to limit big plays. The Texans offensive line has certainly been improving, but their rushing offense should certainly be at a disadvantage in this one based on how well this Ravens defense has been playing.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 9 vs JAX (19 / 160 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec - 18 points, $4500)
The day will be clouded with a 58-yard run that Carlos Hyde was free to score but had the ball punched out inside the five-yard line for a fumble. It was the only mistake, a big one, for Hyde on the day who put up 160 rushing yards on the day. In usual Hyde fashion, the Texans continued to pound the rock with Hyde all game, and he was eating up yards at will. The 58-yard run capped off an impressive 100-yard performance, but it would have been even better if he could have scored the touchdown.
2019 Week 8 vs OAK (19 / 83 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec - 8.3 points, $4700)
It always seems that Carlos Hyde needs his customary fumble to get going, and it happened again against the Raiders. Hyde only had 25 yards rushing in the first half, but then after a fumble that he recovered on his own, he went to work. Hyde rushed for 58 yards in the second half, including a 20-yard rush after injuries to a key offensive lineman. Hyde carried the offense down into scoring territory for the game-winning touchdown. He continues to be the Texans be running back between the tackles.
2019 Week 7 vs IND (12 / 35 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec - 3.5 points, $4700)
It was a slow day for Carls Hyde with the Colts defense shutting him down, running the football. Hyde's longest run of the day was a 10-yard scamper that saw him break tackles and get into the second level. Outside of that run, Hyde was a non-factor for the offense. Hyde also had a drop in the passing game on a key thrid down throw late in the game.
2019 Week 6 vs KC (26 / 116 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec - 22 points, $4400)
The Texans wanted to run the football, and Carlos Hyde notched his first 100-yard game in a Texans uniform. Hyde was able to do whatever he wanted on the ground. He helped the Texans close the gap late in the second quarter with a 2-yard touchdown run. His longest run of the game was 26-yards that saw him break multiple tackles including a nice stiff arm to finish the run. Hyde does an excellent job of breaking initial tackles and making sure all of his runs go for positive gains. Hyde also had a reception for 14-yards on a check down. His only issue of the game was fumbling on the first offensive drive of the game. It was Hyde's second fumble in as many weeks.
2019 Week 5 vs ATL (21 / 60 / 1 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec - 12 points, $4300)
It was another productive day for running back Carlos Hyde who was able to get back into the end zone with a one-yard touchdown run. Hyde was able to cap off a near touchdown from Will Fuller. Hyde's longest run was 14-yards but outside of that is was tough sledding for him. He did have a fumble in the first drive of the game after a Falcons defensive lineman got int he backfield to punch the ball out. Hyde remains the Texans top back to tote the ball
2019 Week 4 vs CAR (12 / 58 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 6 / 0 rec - 10.4 points, $4300)
Carlos Hyde's best run of the day came on what was not a designed run. It was a lateral on a missed pass protection call. Watson was able to find Hyde last minute and hit him for a 25-yard run. Outside of that run, Hyde has been wildly inconsistent running the football compared to the first two weeks of the season. Hyde is giving up on his blocking too quick and not getting downhill as he did in the first two games of the season. Hyde only had 35 yards outside of that 25-yard broken play averaging 3.2 yards per carry.
2019 Week 3 vs LAC (10 / 19 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec - 7.9 points, $4500)
It was a slow day for Carlos Hyde and part of it was due to him giving up on his blocking too soon. There were creases for him to work but Hyde was attempting to get to the cut back lanes too quick not following his blocking. Hyde did have a 3-yard touchdown run to get the scoring going for the Texans to start the game.
2019 Week 2 vs JAX (20 / 90 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec - 9 points, $3600)
When the Texans needed a spark, they turned to Carlos Hyde to handle the run game. 20 carries and the continues to get the bulk of the work in the running game. He had strong runs and no negative runs. Two of Hyde's longest runs of the night were 14 and 11 yards, and on both runs, he finished by running over defenders. The Texans went away from Hyde in the red zone, which is unfortunate with how well that ran the football.
2019 Week 1 vs NO (10 / 83 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec - 9.5 points, $4100)
A surprised in the running game, Carlos Hyde was able to infuse lift into the backfield. Hyde was breaking the first tackle consistently and eating up yards. His longest run was 20-yards and he averaged 8.3 yards a carry. He was productive moving the football and appears to be in line to be the Texans primary ball carrier in the running game.
