49ers RB Carlos Hyde looks ready for OTAs

Sacramento Bee - [Full Article]

Carlos Hyde seems to have recovered from foot surgery.

Hyde’s Miami, Fla.-based trainer recently posted a reel of Hyde and 49ers teammate Bruce Ellington going through drills and both players look ready for the team’s offseason program, which begins April 4.

The clip shows Hyde, who had surgery in December to repair a stress fracture in his left foot, weaving through cones, hopping over hurdles and looking perhaps a little slimmer than the 235 pounds at which he was listed last year.

Fantasy Impact: 

Hyde was the #14 RB (PPR) through the first six weeks before missing the rest of the season with a foot injury. Chip Kelly's teams in Philadelphia had an average ranking of 7.3 in total rush attempts, so Hyde should get plenty of work as the team's lead back. The team re-signed Shaun Draughn after he showed solid productivity down the stretch, but Hyde is the better talent and should serve as the team's RB1.
