I thought Hyde looked fantastic on Thursday night, rumbling through a somewhat depleted Cardinals defense for 95 total yards and a touchdown. Carson was close to playing last week, so he should be ready to rock after another 11 days. How does this timeshare look upon his return? In the three full games they both played, Carson totaled 12, 20, and 17 touches, while Hyde had 7, 7, and 5 touches. Do they even it out a bit more with Carson coming off the multi-week injury? It's possible. The Eagles have allowed just 3.43 yards per carry on the year, which ranks as the second-lowest number in the league. The Eagles are also one of four teams who've yet to allow a receiving touchdown to a running back. Despite running backs averaging 28.0 touches per game against the Eagles (12th-most), they've combined for 113.3 total yards per game (8th-fewest), so efficiency will be hard to come by. Nick Chubb was the first running back who topped 81 yards on the ground against them this season, and just the second running back to top 63 yards. Considering no Seahawks running back has totaled more than 18 carries in a game this year, you're looking for production to come through the air. Carson is the only running back on the team who's seen more than five targets in a game, so he's clearly the one we'd look to. There have been just seven running backs who've cracked double-digit PPR points against the Eagles and all of them touched the ball at least 14 times. Put Carson in RB2 range for his return, but let's hope they don't ease him back in. Hyde is nothing more than a handcuff to Carson right now. If Carson were to sit again, Hyde would step into that low-end RB2 conversation.

Carlos Hyde trucks sticks his way to 95 total yards in Week 11

Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde rushed 14 times for 79 yards and a score while adding two receptions for 16 receiving yards in the Seahawks' Week 11 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Hyde ran angry and possessed on Thursday night, delivering blows to the Cardinals defense on what seemed like every carry. Between his truck stick on LB Haason Reddick and leveling CB Patrick Peterson near the goalline, Hyde ignited the Seahawks run-game and looked the part in his return from a hamstring injury. According to HC Pete Carroll, RB Chris Carson is on track to return in Week 12 but should he suffer a setback, fantasy managers should make sure Hyde is not on waivers. He'll likely still have value against the Philadelphia Eagles even if Carson returns.
