Kansas City Chiefs RB Carlos Hyde has seen increased reps with the first team with RB Damien Williams currently sidelined with a hamstring injury. 'Carlos has done a nice job,' head coach Andy Reid said. 'He's getting a lot of reps and he's taking advantage of them.'
Huddle Up: A situation to definitely keep close tabs on as the lead-back role in the high-scoring K.C. offense is a prime fantasy commodity. Hyde would be a solid RB2 if Williams' injury issues linger past August.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Carlos Hyde is listed as the backup to RB Damien Williams, but he has been busy at minicamp, lining up along with Williams in the teams backfield on occasion. He has been used as a receiver. 'For a running back like me who likes to catch the ball, it would be like a dream come true,' Hyde said Wednesday, June 12.
Huddle Up: Hyde sees a giant improvement going from Blake Bortles in Jacksonville to Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City, so if he can carve out a role as a pass catcher out of the backfield he might be a decent PPR fantasy option again.

Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Jaguars) could see significant playing time after agreeing to a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, in the opinion of Adam Teicher of ESPN.com, because of general manager Brett Veach's preference for bigger backs. 'I kind of have a thing for 220-pound backs that can run and catch and block,' Veach said.
Huddle Up: Hyde will start the year behind Damien Williams in the pecking order, but he has shown he can handle a lead role if necessary. At the very least, he should be considered a handcuff for owners who draft Williams.

Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Jaguars) agreed to a one-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday, March 9. Yahoo Sports! writer Terez A. Paylor reports the deal is worth $2.8 million, citing a source.
Huddle Up: This makes some sense for both parties. The KC backfield is poised to lose Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware, leaving Damien Williams as the lone back with any notable experience. Second-year RB Darrel Williams will be in the mix, and Hyde is versatile enough to play long stretches, if needed. The veteran back gets a year to prove himself in a better situation than last year's messes, and he will not have to take the pounding of being a full-time guy. Fantasy owners are looking at an RB4 in most scenarios, but he has a hint of upside should something happen to Damien Williams.

Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Jaguars) is scheduled to visit the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, March 9.
Huddle Up: Hyde would be the backup to Damien Williams if he does end up with the Chiefs, but he'd still be worth grabbing in the later rounds, especially if you select Williams earlier your draft.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde was released Friday, March 8.
Huddle Up: Hyde is a versatile back that can help a team in a timeshare. He could still be RB3-worthy in the right situation, but he's more likely to fall into an RB4 scenario.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde is being shopped to other teams in a trade, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Hyde rushed for 571 yards with the Jaguars and Cleveland Browns last season but did not have much success during the second half of the season. He could be a No. 2 running back for a team if he is traded but likely will not be a strong fantasy option.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde could be released this offseason because the team would save $4.75 million in salary cap space if Hyde is let go.
Huddle Up: Hyde probably will not be able to find a starting job if he is released but could be a No. 2 running back for a team. He probably will see a handful of carries during games next season and may only be a late-round option in fantasy leagues.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde rushed for 13 yards on 10 carries against the Houston Texans in Week 17. He also caught two passes for six yards during the game.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde will be the starting running back for the Jaguars in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Hyde likely will receive most of the carries during the game with T.J. Yeldon being involved in the passing game. Hyde can be a flex option in standard leagues, while Yeldon can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
