NEWS: Carlos Hyde could become fantasy relevant fast?

According to reports, 49ers rookie RB Carlos Hyde has looked solid so far in camp. With Kendall Hunter (ACL) done for the year, LaMichael James (elbow) out 4-6 weeks, and with Marcus Lattimore (knee) still unproven health-wise, the team fully expects to lean heavily on Hyde in 2014.

SMITTY: Carlos Hyde could quickly look like a strong flex play in early 2014; he has much more upside as the season rolls along, too. Hey Frank Gore owners, get your ear muffs on! Gore is 31 and has 2,189 regular-season rushes to his name. Runners usually start dropping off talent-wise at about 2,000 carries, so Gore could fade in a big way this year, especially from mid-season on. This makes Hyde a MONSTER “down the stretch” sleeper candidate, where he could crank out fantasy RB2-type numbers during the span of games he essentially gets starter-type carries. Now, Marcus Lattimore might have something to say about all of this, but he is a wait-and-see type prospect until he proves (on the field) otherwise.
