 Hyde is unlikely to get 20 touches right away, but he is startable right away in Jacksonville and makes for a high-end RB2 the rest of the season now that he has been dealt to what should be a run-heavy offense. The trade likely means Fournette is going to go on the IR.

Injury-Based Fantasy Advice - OUT- Leonard Fournette has been ruled out for Week 7.

 Hyde hasn't been quite the workhorse he was earlier in the season, as he's begun to lose a few snaps to Duke Johnson and Nick Chubb. Still, Hyde is an excellent bet for 15+ touches and will face off with a crumbling Bucs' D that should allow for plenty of scoring opportunities.

 It's now been two bad weeks for Hyde, who started out the year as one of the top performers at running back, as he was the No. 6 running back through four games. He's now totaled just 97 rushing yards on 31 carries (3.12 yards per carry) against the Ravens and Chargers, while failing to record a touchdown. It's also been 5-of-6 weeks where Hyde has failed to generate more than 3.7 yards per carry, while his teammates Johnson and Chubb have combined for 284 yards on 35 carries (8.11 yards per carry) this year. You can't simply compare backups to starters in those categories, but when comparing Hyde to the league average, he's been downright bad in his fight to retain the job. The Bucs may be a cakewalk through the air, but they've been relatively good against the run, not allowing a single running back to post more than 61 yards on the ground, which included Tevin Coleman, Jordan Howard/Tarik Cohen, James Conner, Jay Ajayi, and Alvin Kamara. Think about that… not a single running back to top 61 rushing yards. That's not the end of this story, though, as they've been murdered against pass-catching backs, allowing 31 receptions for 333 yards and three touchdowns. Keep in mind that they've only played five games and their bye week is already out of the way. Johnson has seen 12 targets in Mayfield's three starts, while Hyde has seen just four targets in that time, so it's possible the Browns bring Johnson to life in this game. He's still yet to touch the ball more than six times, but if they're paying attention to strengths and weaknesses, they'll use him this week. Consider Hyde just a mediocre RB3 who again busts without a touchdown.
