2014 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)

Last updated on Jul-05-2014 by Brad Kruse

The 49ers drafted Hyde in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. This implies they believe in Hyde and his strong college career. The former Ohio State back is a powerful runner and a decent blocker. He could fulfill short-yardage situations or some goal-line work for the 49ers if he can surpass Kendall Hunter on the depth chart. Hyde has a great chance this year to find a way on the field. The opportunity won't be won until the pads go on, but that's where Hyde has shown well. If you draft Gore, make sure you also draft Hyde as a handcuff (unless the coaching staff announces someone else will be the primary backup).

Latest Update

Jul-26-14 49ers RB Kendall Hunter has torn ACL

The results are in from Kendall Hunter's MRI, and they show the worst-case scenario. The 49ers confirmed Saturday that Hunter tore the ACL in his right knee during Friday's practice and will miss the entire season. Hunter was set to compete in camp to remain the team's direct backup behind Frank Gore.

Fantasy Analysis:

Without Hunter around, everyone moves up a rung. Rookie Carlos Hyde is now clearly in the lead for the No. 2 job. Hunter's injury raises LaMichael James' chances of making the final roster. Marcus Lattimore might have a shot at the backup gig, but he has to prove he is all the way back from a brutal 2012 knee injury.
Hyde was already the team's most popular secondary back in fantasy circles. He's an RB4 who could be a touchdown maven this season. He is the team's running back of the future and with Gore in his 30s, the Niners would be well-served to give Hyde a significant role right away if he can handle it.
