Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde's one-year contract is set to expire at the end of the league year, and he has made it clear he wants to remain with the team on a more long-term basis. The team reportedly has interest in a deal as well, according to a source. 'Yes, I definitely want to be back here. I don't want to go to another team and start all over again. I felt like Houston was home. I think I handled my part. I've just got to let things play out in the offseason and see what happens,' Hyde told the Houston Chronicle.
Huddle Up: Head coach Bill O'Brien has long been enamored with Hyde, who performed well at Ohio State when O'Brien coached at Penn State. The problem is that despite reaching 1,000 rushing yards for the first time in his career with Houston this season, Hyde doesn't bring much to the table as a receiver and is almost entirely game-script dependent as a result. The Texans would do well to search for an upgrade in the offseason rather than commit to a multi-year deal with a one-trick back set to turn 30 early next season.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde rushed for just 27 yards on 17 carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Saturday, Dec. 21, but he was able to get into the end zone for his sixth rushing score of the year. He added one 10-yard catch.
Huddle Up: The touchdown salvaged an otherwise disastrous day for Hyde in which he averaged just 1.6 yards per carry. It was reassuring to see him still trusted at the goal line.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde (ankle) is active for Week 16 Saturday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: Outside of a 10-rush, 17-yard performance against the New England Patriots, Hyde has been productive the last four weeks. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a slightly poor matchup, but he's worthy of a high-end flex play.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to check the inactive list to see if Hyde will be ready to play. He has rushed for at least 65 yards in six of the last seven games and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in leagues if he is active.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde (ankle, non-injury) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Hyde is coming off one of his best games of the season in which he topped 1,000 rushing yards for the season. He faces the No. 1 rush defense of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week and is only an option in deeper leagues.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde (ankle) was limited at practice Tuesday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Hyde rushed for 104 yards and a touchdown against the Tennessee Titans in Week 15. It was his third 100-yard rushing game of the season, but he faces a tough matchup this week against the No. 1 rushing defense of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fantasy managers should be able to do better for their championship game.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde rushed for 104 yards and one touchdown on 26 carries against the Tennessee Titans in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Hyde had one of his better games of the season this week and has rushed for at least 65 yards in six of the last seven games. He will have a tough matchup next week but can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde carried 10 times for 17 yards and caught his only target for five yards in Week 13 versus the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: There's not really much to say that hasn't already been said about Hyde, who typically needs to score a touchdown in order to be worth starting in fantasy because he is a non-factor in the passing game. Hyde has made more than one catch in a game only once all season and has been held to 67 total yards or fewer in three straight. He'll be a dicey flex option in Week 14 versus the Denver Broncos.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde had 16 carries for 67 yards against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: It was another workmanlike effort from Hyde, who the Texans seem determined not to feature despite him averaging nearly five yards per carry on the year. A nonfactor as a receiver, Hyde is best suited as an RB3 down the stretch, particularly in PPR formats.

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson played 59 percent of the offensive snaps against the Baltimore Ravens Sunday, Nov. 17. RB Carlos Hyde played just 34 percent of the snaps.
Huddle Up: It was the first time since Week 7 that Johnson led the timeshare. Week 7 was also the last time the Texans lost. Johnson is used more in the passing game and should be expected to see more work in the Texans' tougher matchups, while Hyde will continue to be used to run out the clock in victories.
