2014 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Jul-06-2014 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).
According to 49ers GM Trent Baalke Carlos Hyde has lost some weight and is now down in the 'mid-220 pound range'. He was listed as 230 pounds last season and is now down to the weight of his early college days. Baalke also went on to see that Hyde looks 'extremely good.Fantasy Analysis:
Hyde is expected to be the feature back in San Francisco this season. The shed pounds could help add some more speed and quickness to his powerful style of running. Expect his ADP to rise more and more as we get closer to the season. He's a very talented back and was considered by many to be the best RB in last year's draft, despite not being the first back off the board.
