He's a backup to Damien Williams at least for now but running back Carlos Hyde has stayed busy at Chiefs mini-camp. Hyde, who signed with the Chiefs as a free agent this year, has occasionally played in the lineup with Williams and frequently has been used as a receiver out of the backfield. "For a running back like me who likes to catch the ball . . . it would be like a dream come true," Hyde said.
Hyde was quoted as saying "I didn't know they used the running back so much in the passing game until I got here. It put a smile on my face." He's looking for a fresh start in Kansas City, but will most likely remain in a back-up role unless something were to happen to Damien Williams. The 28-year old is currently being drafted as RB48 but could see his ADP rise if he performs well at camps and the preseason.
JAX RB Carlos Hyde - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Houston Texans
Last week at Miami Carlos Hyde received eight carries for a team-high 47 yards. The Jacksonville ground game was able to amass over 120 yards which helped the team control the clock in the win. Due to a sore hamstring, Hyde missed the October game versus Houston and due to his lack of touches should not be a part of your starting lineup on Sunday.
