Carlos Hyde is listed behind start Damien Williams at running back, but he's been sharing the backfield with Williams at minicamp and has seen extensive work as a receiver. (ESPN)

Fantasy Impact:

Hyde is excited about the role, and fantasy owners should also be happy to get their hands on a potential starter in the later rounds. While Williams has been named the starter, he hasn't proven able to handle a full workload over the course of the season like Hyde has. Should Hyde get a shot at being the team's starting RB, he would carry RB1 upside in this Andy Reid offense. Given that upside, Hyde is someone to strongly consider at his current consensus ADP of 117 overall and RB45.
