2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL STATUS REPORT: CARLOS HYDE RB SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

All it took was one game where San Francisco 49ers running back Carlos Hyde was operating at less than 100 percent for head coach Kyle Shanahan to claim late Monday that he would ride the hot hand at the position moving forward.  This after Hyde was terrific the first four weeks of the season in running with authority and even contributing in the passing game.  Rumors from the beginning of Shanahan's hiring over the winter however indicated that he was no fan of Hyde and that he may even go so far as cutting him before the opener.  While that did not happen, it looks like Shanahan is taking advantage of a down week in terms of Hyde's stock to change around things at running back.  Rookie Matt Brieda is now the object of Shanahan's eye and especially after seeing him rush for 49 yards on just 10 carries against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5.  This of course is potentially disastrous for Hyde's fantasy football value moving forward as it will remove the rare bellcow role he was carrying and open the door to him being replaced as the starter as well.  Anyone who owns stock in Hyde may want to start offering him around the league before this circulates entirely.
