Fantasy Football: ESPN Projects 49ers RB Carlos Hyde To Rush Over 1,000 Yards


The Forever Faithful have been patiently waiting for San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde to have a breakout year. They were hoping that year would be last year, but due to a stress fracture, that never came to fruition. Now as he enters his third season, the time is now for Hyde to showcase his talent for a full 16-game regular season.

And ESPN believes that will happen, as they project Hyde to rush well over 1,000 yards while scoring 7 touchdowns in the process. Coming in as the 12th best running back to start the 2016 season, it will be fun to see Hyde in action as he should thrive under HC Chip Kelly’s offense.
