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.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde rushed nine times for a team-best 65 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens and he had no catches on one target.
Huddle Up: Hyde visited the end zone for the first time since Oct. 13, although his nine carries marked a season low. That was due to the fact Houston was getting tuned up and they got away from the run early on. He'll look to bounce back against the Colts on Thursday night. He had just 35 rushing yards on 12 attempts in Week 7 in Indianapolis in the first meeting.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde rushed for 160 yards on 19 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9. Hyde did lose a fumble during the game.
Huddle Up: Hyde has received at least 19 carries in four of the last five games and has posted two 100-yard games during that span. He will continue to receive most of the carries in the running game and can be a No. 2 fantasy running back against most opponents.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9, and Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com believes Hyde will be held to less than 40 rushing yards by a Jacksonville defense that has allowed a combined 56 rushing yards to New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon and New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell over the last three games.
Huddle Up: Hyde's lack of involvement in the passing game already limits his upside, and withe Jaguars shutting down opposing backs recently, he is best viewed as a low-ceiling, volume-based flex play.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde ran 19 times for 83 yards in Week 8 versus the Oakland Raiders. He failed to haul his only target.
Huddle Up: Hyde broke loose for a 20-yard run late in the game, making his overall numbers look respectable. While he's on pace for his first career 1,000-yard season, he's exceedingly hard to trust in fantasy because he doesn't contribute in the passing game and needs to score a touchdown in order to be usable. Hyde will be a low-end RB2 at best in Week 9 when the Texans meet the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson out-snapped RB Carlos Hyde 39-to-26 in the Week 7 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Johnson received a total of nine touches and racked up 56 yards. It was his first start of the season but Carlos Hyde still had more carries. Johnson has the higher ceiling in PPR formats, but Hyde is the safer option in standard leagues.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde rushed for 35 yards on 12 carries against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Hyde has been playing well this season but was not able to find much room against the Colts. He can still be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option next week against the Oakland Raiders.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde (calf) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Hyde has been a solid starter for the Texans this season and will continue to receive plenty of carries during games. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde (calf) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: Hyde is coming off his first 100-yard game of the season and has recorded a touchdown in three of the last four games. He will continue to be the main option in the running game and can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.
