Carlos Hyde Player Overview

What You Need to Know:

  • Hyde finished top 17 in carries (245), rushing yards (1,070) and TDs (6) last year.
  • But he was just average in yards per carry, yards after contact and missed tackles forced. Hyde was also bad in the passing game.
  • He settled for a 1-year deal with the Seahawks, where he’ll likely open the season as the #2 RB behind Chris Carson.

2019 in review

Hyde was better than expected in 2019. The Chiefs thought so little of him that they traded him to the Texans in late August for OT Martinas Rankin, who ended up playing just 272 snaps on offense last year.

Despite arriving in Houston just a week before the start of the season, Hyde quickly carved out a significant role. He led the Texans with 10 carries in the opener and then toted it 20 times in Week 2. Hyde went on to tally double-digit carries in 14 of 16 games, including 8 games of 16+ attempts.

He finished the 2019 campaign with 245 carries — tied for 11th most in the league. Hyde turned those into 1,070 yards (12th most) and 6 TDs (tied for 17th).

He was just average from an efficiency standpoint, though. Hyde’s 4.37 yards per carry ranked 24th among 44 RBs with 100+ attempts. He ranked 27th in that group in yards after contact per attempt and 32nd in Pro Football Focus’ Elusive Rating, which factors in yards after contact and missed tackles forced. Hyde finished 26th among 45 qualifiers in Football Outsiders’ DVOA.

He was also rarely used in the passing game — and wasn’t good when he was. Hyde turned 16 targets into 10 catches and 42 yards. He ranked dead last in yards per route run among 88 RBs with 10+ targets.

2020 outlook

So, despite the raw production last year, it wasn’t a surprise that Hyde toiled on the free-agent market for nearly 3 months before finally landing a 1-year, $2.75 million deal with the Seahawks. He joins a backfield in Seattle alongside Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, Travis Homer and 4th…
