Although he was rumored to be on the trading block and on the verge of losing snaps to Matt Breida, Hyde had one of his most productive fantasy games of the season on Sunday against the Redskins, scoring two touchdowns. It wasn't a great effort overall, as he averaged just 2.2 yards per carry, but he was on the field for 78 percent of the snaps, showing that he is still the back to own in San Francisco. The Cowboys allow the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing running backs, so Hyde should have a big day here, as the 49ers will likely look to the running game to ease the pressure off C.J. Beathard. Consider him a borderline RB1 on Sunday.

Carlos Hyde back to top dog status in 49ers backfield

Carlos Hyde carried 13 times for 28 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the 49ers' Week 6 loss to the Redskins. Hyde added five receptions on six targets for 47 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Hyde proved to be pretty independent of game-script, as the 49ers trailed essentially the whole game. Hyde saw 56 snaps to Matt Breida's 17, allaying any concerns of a real timeshare. Perhaps Hyde had the "hot hand" in this game, but with all of the offseason talk about the 49ers moving on from Hyde that proved to be fluff, Shanahan's comments should be taken with a grain of salt. Hyde continues to dominate this backfield, with Week 5 seeming to be an outlier. Hyde is a high-end RB2 moving forward with potential to be an RB1 any given week. Hyde's usage in the passing game bodes well for a 49ers team that is unlikely to blow anyone out this season.
