There is no 2015 profile for this player yet. Here is his 2014 profile:
Hunter has played the role of handcuff to Frank Gore for a few years. He definitely has fresher legs than the former Miami Hurricanes back. Hunter's yards per carry average over the last three years have been 4.58 compared to Gore's 4.35. Normally, he would be in high demand in drafts, except there are a couple of younger backs named Hyde and Lattimore that will draw attention as well. The 49ers know what they have in Hunter and it appears unlikely they view him as their back for the future after adding RBs in each of the last three drafts.Last updated on Jul-06-2014 by Brad Kruse
Eyebrows were raised yesterday when 49ers projected starting running back Carlos Hyde was placed on the active/NFI list. He had been sidelined with an apparent calf injury during minicamp too. Well, he spent all of one day on the list and today was medically cleared to participate in training camp. He didn't miss a single snap at camp.Fantasy Analysis:
Crisis averted for Hyde owners. He appears to be good to go heading into training camp. Hyde projects to be the primary ball carrier. However, he may end up in a semi-committee with a washed up Reggie Bush, Kendall Hunter coming off a torn ACL and rookie Mike Davis. Hyde should see the majority of the carries this season. His current ADP has him being drafted as the RB15, which isn't crazy but may be a little high. We have him ranked as the RB23, he has a lot more value closer to that range.
