From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 18): Hyde's long run came in garbage time and was one of the only high points for the Texans offense on a long afternoon.
Week 12: vs Indianapolis Colts - $6200
FBG says: Tough matchup. While the game script was certainly against the Texans last week, they still had success on the ground as both Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson averaged over six yards per rush attempt with Hyde found the end zone for the first time since Week 6. While garbage time may have helped this rushing offense last week, they have been rushing well for most of this season--averaging the fifth-most rushing yards per game (140.7). Hyde continues to lead the backfield in carries and has rushed for 60 or more yards in five of his last six games, including a pair of 110+ rushing yard outings over that span. Duke Johnson continues to see a small and unpredictable workload on the ground with fewer than six carries per game. His output with those carries has also been unpredictable in recent weeks as he has averaged over six yards per carry in four is his last seven games but amassed just 14 rushing yards on 10 attempts in Weeks 8 and 9. Deshaun Watson must also be accounted for in this ground game as he had rushed for 30 or more yards in five straight games leading prior to last week--however, he did suffer an ankle injury in last week's game that could certainly limit his mobility considering the early start on Thursday. The Texans offensive line is back to full strength with both tackles healthy again, and while they are far from a top-tier unit, they have consistently improved in run blocking as the season has progressed. The Colts run defense has smothered opposing ground games in recent weeks, giving up the third-fewest rushing yards per game (59) and the third-fewest fantasy points per game (non-PPR scoring) to opposing running backs since Week 5. Only two running backs exceeded 50 rushing yards over that span of games, while not a single running back has exceeded 90 rushing yards against the Colts this season. The lack of scoring has certainly helped them limit fantasy production as well, giving up only three rushing touchdowns to running backs with just one coming in their last eight games. Solid play from top linebacker Darius Leonard has been a big part of their success as he has looked great since returning from injury in Week 7. Denico Autry is also playing very well in the interior of that defensive line while safety Malik Hooker offers a nice insurance option with his excellent tackling skills displayed from the safety position. The Texans ground game struggled against this group in their Week 7 meeting, and much of the same can be expected in this week's contest.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 11 vs BAL (9 / 65 / 1 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec - 12.5 points, $6300)
From a production standpoint, it was a pretty insignificant day for Hyde until he broke a 41-yard touchdown run late in the game during garbage time. Outside of that long run, Hyde had tough sledding, only rushing for 24 yards on eight carries.
2019 Week 9 vs JAX (19 / 160 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec - 14 points, $6100)
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, $6100)
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, $6300)
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 - 17.5 points, $6000)
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, $5600)
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 - 8.4 points, $5900)
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, $6000)
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, $5400)
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 points, $5400)
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.
