49ers RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. Hyde was spotted with his arm in a sling, and is out for Week 7. On the season, Shaun Draughn has 26 carries to Mike Davis’s 10, though Davis has out-carried Draughn by a 7-to-3 margin in the last two games, so we believe Davis will be the lead back. Draughn should fill in on third downs, but it should be noted that Davis saw three targets in Week 6, while Draughn only saw one. Davis has a 1.8 YPC on the year, while Draughn isn’t much better (2.1 YPC). Draughn had a decent fantasy stretch late last season (averaging 73 total yards in a six-game stretch), but he didn’t run the ball particularly well during that span (3.5 YPC). The 49ers have a Week 8 bye, so it’s possible that Hyde returns in Week 9 against the Saints.
