49ers RB gets opportunity in season finale
Shaun Draughn is in line for his seventh career start on Sunday when the 49ers close out the regular season against the Seattle Seahawks at Leviís Stadium. Hyde is out with a MCL sprain of his left knee.(CSN Bay Area)
FF Today's Take:It's tough to get excited about Draughn considering DuJuan Harris will likely see action as well and the matchup against the Seahawks isn't promising. Draughn will be a volume-based Flex option in Week 17.
Torn MCL for Hyde creates opportunity for Draughn-- Mon Dec 26 11:00 am --
Draughn and DuJuan Harris should share the load in Week 17
Carlos Hyde had the medial collateral ligament in his left knee severely sprained in Saturdayís win at Los Angeles, a league source said. ESPN first reported the MCL injury Sunday, characterizing it as a tear.(San Jose Mercury News)
FF Today's Take:Shaun Draughn (16 touches) got the majority of work Saturday once Hyde exited the game and should get the start Week 17 against the Seahawks. It's less than ideal matchup making him more of a flex consideration in the season finale.
