49ers RB Carlos Hyde shedding weight

Matt Barrows, Twitter - [Full Article]

49ers GM Trent Baalke says RB Carlos Hyde is down into the mid 220-pound range, his lowest weight since early in college, and looking "extremely good."

Fantasy Impact: 

Hyde is expected to take over as the team's primary ball-carrier, with Reggie Bush assuming the passing down role. Given Bush's presence and Hyde's 4.0 YPC during in his rookie season, Hyde is probably being overdrafted as he's been going in the middle of the 3rd round of early PPR drafts. Expect 250 or so carries and a limited role in the passing game.
