The Niners are favored...what?Manny Sanders is out and Paxton Lynch is his quarterback.

The Rams are 29th against fantasy running backs and the Rams will be resting starters. Hyde is a RB1 for Week 17.The Chiefs are 31st against fantasy receivers and they will likely rest key players. Thomas has a chance to close out 2017 on a high note.
Dan Harris

Hyde found the end zone against the Jaguars on Sunday, but had a relatively mediocre day otherwise. His production has actually waned a bit with the addition of Jimmy Garoppolo, though he remains in the weekly RB2 discussion weekly. That's at least where he'll remain in Week 17 against a Rams team that has been generous to opposing running backs, and may decide to rest some starters on defense. Hyde will make a fine play next week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
One of the best plays in Week 17, Hyde will go against a Rams team who is likely to rest a bunch of their starters. Of course, that's not to mention that the Rams aren't a good run defense to begin with, and have allowed over 4.5 yards per carry along with 12 rushing touchdowns on the season. With Jimmy Garoppolo playing the way he is, Hyde should continue to get scoring opportunities.
