2014 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)

Last updated on Jul-05-2014 by Brad Kruse

The 49ers drafted Hyde in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. This implies they believe in Hyde and his strong college career. The former Ohio State back is a powerful runner and a decent blocker. He could fulfill short-yardage situations or some goal-line work for the 49ers if he can surpass Kendall Hunter on the depth chart. Hyde has a great chance this year to find a way on the field. The opportunity won't be won until the pads go on, but that's where Hyde has shown well. If you draft Gore, make sure you also draft Hyde as a handcuff (unless the coaching staff announces someone else will be the primary backup).

Latest Update

Dec-20-14 49ers RB Carlos Hyde out, Frank Gore questionable for Saturday night

The San Francisco 49ers will be without rookie running back Carlos Hyde, who has been ruled out with an ankle injury. Frank Gore, who's trying to get clearance to play after suffering a concussion in Week 15, is listed as questionable after getting in a limited practice Friday. If Gore can get cleared by doctors, he's expected to suit up tonight when the 49ers host the Chargers.

Fantasy Analysis:

Gore is a decent flex option this week if he plays. If not, the 49ers' backfield should be avoided in every which way. FB Bruce Miller, RB Alfonso Smith and newly acquired RB Philip Tanner would share the backfield duties should Gore not receive clearance. None of those guys are fantasy-relevant this week.
