Fantasy Drop Alert: Carlos Hyde Is Currently Expected to Be Out Through 11/7 Which Hurts His Fantasy Value

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Carlos Hyde may be worth a roster spot in deeper leagues or may be a decent waiver wire pick up. His 32 projected fantasy points puts him at #67 behind Boston Scott and ahead of Benny Snell. He is expected to be out through 11/7 which impacts his rest of season ranking. He has averaged 8.74 fantasy points in his past 37 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 3.5 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#68) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #68 ranked running back. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 34%, he is the #61 most highly owned running back. Carlos Hyde is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #25 fantasy position rank.

CARLOS HYDE IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $5.7K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $5.1K

He is projected for 2.3 FanDuel points and 2.7 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$4339 short of $5.7K on FanDuel and -$3925 short of $5.1K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
