2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the more highly-touted fantasy rookies coming into the 2014 season, itís hard to not be disappointed about what Carlos Hyde actually produced. Hyde primarily played as the backup to Frank Gore throughout the season, finishing with 333 yards on 83 carries, a 4.0 yards per carry average. The yards per carry itself isnít too worrisome, but the fact that he was fresh for the vast majority of his carries throughout the season and still barely cracked four yards per carry has to give fantasy owners some pause heading into the 2015 season, where he is expected to be the 49ersí primary ball carrier.

With Gore now in Indianapolis, the second-year back, Hyde, will have a chance to prove he was worth a second-round draft pick a year ago. Gore took the eighth-highest number of carries of any back a season ago, and thereís little reason to believe that the 49ers wonít again rely heavily on the run. This bodes well for Hydeís chances to have a solid season, as he is almost a lock to touch the ball 180-plus times. Unfortunately for him, he will likely lose some touches to offseason acquisition Reggie Bush, particularly on third down. Hyde did make a few catches in 2014, but heís still primarily a first- and second-down back. Given his lack of production as a rookie, itís a little surprising to see Hyde going as high as he is, but itís all about opportunity. With Hyde likely to be the primary ball carrier on a run-heavy team, he should be a safe option to be a productive RB2 this season with RB1 upside.

Rugby star turned RB continues to shine for 49ers
Shifty runner Jarryd Hayne giving his all to earn roster spot
By: John Canario | Fri Sep 4, 4:00 pm

San Francisco
Only a few weeks ago, former Australian Rugby League player Jarryd Hayne was a blip on the NFL map. Predicted to bomb out in his rookie preseason with the San Francisco 49ers, Hayne instead has been doing everything right to assure him a final spot in the roster. Thursday night he did it again, running up the sideline before pummeling cornerback Lowell Rose. The move, known as a shoulder charge down under, has been banned in rugby league due to its dangerous nature. Hayne did more than just run over players, he also showed some nifty moves and agility to break off a big run. (SB Nation)

FFToday's Take: Hayne has amassed 175 rushing yards on 25 carries this preseason, good for an impressive 7.0 yards per carry. His inexperience playing football is going to limit any fantasy value he might otherwise have had, but he might be a name worth remembering should Carlos Hyde and Reggie Bush both prove ineffective.

Niners will use camp to figure out backfield
OC: Does not want "tightly defined roles" at RB
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 3, 9:30 pm

San Francisco
San Francisco 49ers new OC Geep Chryst has no idea how the 49ers will ultimately attempt to replace RB Frank Gore, who was the main man in the teamís backfield for nearly all of his 10-year run with the franchise. ďThatís what we need camp to find out,Ē Chryst said. Carlos Hyde will get an opportunity to be the featured back, but Chryst said he does not want tightly defined roles. He wants Hyde, Reggie Bush, Kendall Hunter and Mike Davis to be able to thrive in different roles. (CSN Bay Area)

FFToday's Take: Hyde seems to be a good bet to command early-down work and his fantasy upside could be his current fourth-round ADP, but the odds of him serving as the featured back aren't going to be particularly good since Bush has been one of the better passing-game weapons at running back for several years. The Niners also figure to be trailing more often than they have in recent seasons, which is another reason to let someone else use an early pick on the second-year back.
