There's nothing necessarily wrong with Carlos Hyde as a player, but it seems like he's given being given way too much credit as a potential hindrance to Damien Williams in the Kansas City offense this season. Hyde, despite playing in the league for five seasons, has never reached 250 carries, never hit the 1,000 rushing yard mark and he's averaged fewer than 25 receptions per season. In 2018 he played for two teams - the Browns and the Jaguars - and he rushed for an average of just 3.4 yards per carry in Cleveland and 3.3 yards per carry in Jacksonville. Yes, he's been more productive in the past and we shouldn't judge a running back solely based off of his yards per carry, but Hyde simply is not a special talent.

Make no mistake about it - Hyde will see some touches this season for the Chiefs, but even if he sees 30 percent of the team's carries, that still shouldn't be viewed as a huge hit to Williams. A 60/30/10 carry split between Williams/Hyde/others is certainly common in today's NFL, but the most important factor is that Williams is really the only player with proven pass catching ability in this backfield. Sure, Hyde once came completely out of nowhere in San Francisco when he caught 59 passes in a season, but his career 5.6 yards per reception is a pathetic number, even for a running back.

The prevailing belief among Hyde believers seems to be that he'll see significant work near the goal line this season. That really doesn't make a lot of sense, though, when you consider that Hyde has never been a particularly effective goal line runner. He's not necessarily bad at it, but he's never exceeded eight rushing touchdowns in a season and despite his "grinder" style, he's really only a couple of pounds heavier than Williams with significantly less explosiveness and versatility.

It would be shocking if the Chiefs deploy Hyde in anything other than a late-game grinder role this season. That type of usage could have some value in games where the Chiefs are blowing out their opponents, but we know that blowouts are often difficult to predict in the NFL so it becomes extremely risky to start players like Hyde based on the hopes that he'll get carries down the stretch when the game is already put away.

Hyde is currently being selected as a ninth-round pick and even that might be too much. He's essentially a handcuff to Williams with very little standalone value due to his lack of passing game prowess.

Injury Damien Williams returns
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Aug 7, 10:20 am

Kansas City Chiefs
Damien Williams is practicing for the first time since the first day of camp. We’ll see how much he does. Damien Williams is back but Carlos Hyde is taking the starter snaps at RB as Chiefs begin team drills. 10 plays of a team drill and Damien Williams didn't play. So looks like no team work for him today. (Adam Teicher on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Williams has been absent from training camp with a hamstring injury and still isn't a full go. It's unlikely he'll see any action in Kansas City's first pre-season game. Carlos Hyde, Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson have been handling the bulk of running back duties with Damien out. I


Injury Damien Williams bothered by hamstring issue
Has yet to practice in training camp
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Aug 3, 1:00 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Andy Reid sounded frustrated with starting running back Damien Williams, who has yet to practice with the Chiefs at training camp because of a sore hamstring. "He’s missed quite a bit," Reid said. "He’s missed a lot of plays. It’s been great for these other guys. (Carlos Hyde) has done a nice job. He’s got a lot of reps and he’s taking advantage of them." (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Williams is in a prime position to be a fantasy RB1 but has some legitimate concerns surrounding his health and lack of experience. Williams has never carried the ball more than 50 times in a season and is not getting off on the right foot in 2019. The Chiefs are currently looking at DB Tremon Smith on offense as a RB.
