Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
 Cam Akers will likely seize the starting job sooner than later, but Brown is expected to start Week 1. He's not a guy to be thrilled about for the rest of the season, but if you're looking for a starter in fantasy's opening week, you've found your man.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After ranking 12th in rushing yards last year, Hyde accepted a one-year deal with the Seahawks. It seems that he's insurance for Rashaad Penny, who's expected to start the year on the PUP list. But you never know with Pete Carroll, as he's not afraid to shake things up. If Chris Carson struggles coming off his hip injury, or fumbles again, we could see Hyde in a 15-touch role. He's worth a pick in one of the last few rounds.We've heard Sean McVay say that the Rams backfield will be more of a timeshare in 2020, but will it include Brown? It's highly unlikely considering they already tried that, and they've now spent a second- and third- round pick on running backs over the last two years. Brown may get some goal-line work, but he's not going to be anything you can rely on for fantasy.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Hyde finds himself on a new team once again, this time in Seattle. While it is a run-heavy offense, I can't imagine Hyde being all that productive considering we haven't seen him play at a high level for years now. He's at best a handcuff to Chris Carson.Malcolm Brown has had his chances over the years and has never proven an ability to be productive nor consistent. The Rams have Darrel Henderson and rookie Cam Akers ahead of him on the depth chart, Brown doesn't need to be drafted in redraft leagues this year.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Hyde's going to be relevant to begin the season if Rashaad Penny does indeed start the season on the PUP list. If you loaded up on WR early, Hyde's a perfect target late for instant RB production. He'll be a borderline RB2/RB3 when he's in the lineup.With the addition of Cam Akers, Brown is irrelevant for fantasy football yet again. He can stay on your waiver wire this season.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Hyde is the new Frank Gore in that he now travels from team to team, mercilessly killing the value of the starting RB on that team. First it was Chubb, then Duke, and now Carson? @4for4_John 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Hyde had a surprisingly effective year with Houston, despite joining the team just before the season started. He saw 245 carries and averaged 4.4 yards per carry, proving useful in fantasy despite not factoring into the passing game at all. He signed late this offseason with the Seahawks, which, for now, appear to be more of a hedge for Rashaad Penny's injury rather than a chance for Hyde to supplant Chris Carson. But, given Carson's fumbling issues and hip injury, Hyde makes a decent handcuff in a run-heavy Seattle scheme.Brown is entering his sixth season and has yet to surpass 255 yards rushing in a season. Although Todd Gurley is now out of the picture, Darrell Henderson remains, and Cam Akers has been brought in. At best, Brown is likely looking at being the third piece in a three-headed backfield, and although his size lends itself to being used around the goal-line, there are far too many roadblocks in his path to fantasy relevancy.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Carlos Hyde's move to Seattle is inconvenient for everyone involved. He'll likely take 6-10 carries a week without providing any fantasy value but he's also not a good handcuff. If Carson goes down he'll likely still be in a committee and be little more than a flex start. I really don't like this situation and I'll have zero shares to start the year.I'll let you in on a little secret, Malcolm Brown is a better footballer than Darrell Henderson and the Rams agree. Henderson rarely had more than a couple of touches when Brown was healthy and it's highly likely Brown starts Week 1 while Cam Akers finds his feat. He's a sneaky early season play with plenty of scoring upside in the high-powered Rams attack.
