The Chiefs have already acknowledged Damien Williams will be their starter, but he's a running back who's still yet to see more than 13 carries in a regular season game or 50 carries in a full season. There's no better handcuff to bet on than Andy Reid's, as whoever is taking snaps in his offense will post RB2 numbers, at minimum. Hyde doesn't cost you very much to have on your bench, and let's be honest, if someone would've asked you a year ago who you'd rather have as your team's running back, you would've chosen Hyde over Williams. He's someone who may not even need an injury to eventually take the starting job.

Carlos Hyde sharing backfield with Damien Williams

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.

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.
