Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Hyde has taken over the starting job and will continue to receive a majority of the carries in the running game. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in most leagues.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) stayed a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 19.
Huddle Up: Hyde has performed well through two games after bouncing around the league the last two years. He has 173 yards on 30 carries through the first two weeks and is a solid FLEX play.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 18.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde rushed for 83 yards on 10 carries in Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints on Monday, Sept. 9. He added one reception for two yards.
Huddle Up: A trip to the Los Angeles Rams a week after LA was gashed by Christian McCaffrey. Hyde is no Run CMC, but he looked spry making his Texans debut in Week 1. Gamers in deep setups can consider him a flex and hope for a touchdown.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Carlos Hyde was acquired by the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 31, in exchange for OT Martinas Rankin.
Huddle Up: Hyde likely will serve as the No. 2 back for the Texans and could receive a solid amount of work depending on how they use Duke Johnson. He could be a late-round option in deeper leagues or a waiver wire pickup during the season.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Carlos Hyde is likely to be released this weekend, barring a late-preseason injury, in the opinion of NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.
Huddle Up: The Hyde-release rumors persist, and rookie RB Darwin Thompson stands to be primary fantasy beneficiary as he would likely assume the No. 2 role behind Damien Williams.

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.
