FF Today's Take:Hyde has been on the wrong side of the questionable tag all week and it seems to be a longshot for him to suit up. If the doesn't play, we could see a three-man committee of DuJuan Harris, Mike Davis and Shaun Draughn at running back for the 49ers with Harris having the most fantasy value.
Carlos Hyde dealing with sprained AC joint-- Thu Nov 3 8:15 pm --
FF Today's Take:Sprained AC joints tend to lead to multi-week absences, so it is likely San Francisco's Week 8 bye didn't give him enough time to heal. OC Curtis Modkins stated earlier in the week that he felt DuJuan Harris "earned more opportunities" after posting 57 total yards on 13 touches in Week 7, so he should be the target for desperate Hyde owners looking for a handcuff. Mike Davis and Shaun Draughn will also steal snaps if Hyde misses this week, making all three backs low-end options at best.
Carlos Hyde still in non-contact jersey-- Thu Nov 3 2:00 pm --
Kelly: Carlos Hyde is still in non-contact jersey, hasn't taken any hits on shoulder. Sunday status TBD, will monitor end of week.(49ers on Twitter)
FF Today's Take:Coming off a bye, most expected Hyde to be ready for Week 9 but as of Thursday his status is in doubt. This may be gamesmanship by the 49ers but Hyde owners should have plan B in place. DuJuan Harris, Mike Davis and Shaun Draughn are next up on the depth chart.
Carlos Hyde in danger of missing Week 7-- Wed Oct 19 1:45 pm --
FF Today's Take:Hyde is dealing with a shoulder injury and if he's unable to go, Mike Davis and Shaun Draughn would handle the running back duties for the 49ers. Davis has the more fantasy upside and should work most on early downs.
