Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Over the last five weeks, Hyde has less than 19 carries just one time. The drawback, however, is that he also has just one reception over that span. He's heavily involved but his upside hinges entirely on his ability to score. He's a high floor, generally low upside RB3.Freeman has his games where he can contribute, but generally he doesn't provide the upside you need to start him. He's an acceptable bye week RB2 or FLEX, but we'd recommend you avoid starting him if at all possible.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Ravens are 9th against fantasy running backs, Hyde is a low-upside flex option on the road this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The last time we saw the Texans duo on the field, the timeshare was a lot closer than it'd been the previous seven games. From Week 2 through Week 8, we watched Hyde tally 125 touches while Johnson totaled just 51 touches, a near 2.5 to 1 ratio. The gap was Hyde 19, Johnson 12 while in London, and it won't help Hyde's cause that he fumbled for the fourth time this year towards the end of that game. The truth is that Hyde needs to get it done on the ground, as he's tallied just six receptions the entire season and 66 percent of them came in one game. The Ravens are not a team to target on the ground. Outside of one game where they were missing defensive tackle Brandon Williams, they've allowed just 528 yards (66.0 per game) on 146 carries (3.62 yards per carry) and five rushing touchdowns over eight games. Oddly, there's been just four running backs who've reached double-digit carries against them and just two running backs who've topped 65 yards on the ground. Hyde is a low-upside RB3 in this matchup and one to avoid in DFS.
