Hyde's two-year contract with Jacksonville is for $4.5 million, including a guaranteed $1.25 million base salary for 2021 and a $900,000 signing bonus, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
It's a modest contract even by backup RB standards, but the guarantees should at least lock in Hyde for a Week 1 roster spot. The Jaguars could still bring in more bodies to compete for backup work behind James Robinson, who averaged 45.8 snaps and 20.6 touches per game as a rookie. A similar workload isn't out of the question even if Hyde also gets some carries, considering the Jags had an NFL-low 337 rush attempts last season. Robinson accounted for 71.2 percent of the attempts (240) despite missing Weeks 16 and 17.

The Jaguars and Hyde agreed to a two-year, $6 million contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
With Chris Thompson (back) set to be an unrestricted free agent, Jacksonville has brought in Hyde, likely to be the top reserve to starting running back James Robinson (ankle). Hyde played under new coach Urban Meyer at Ohio State, but the seven-year pro has just one 1,000-yard season to his credit (2019 with the Texans) and doesn't pose much of a threat as a receiver.

Hyde rushed four times for five yards in Saturday's 30-20 wild-card loss to the Rams.
EDGE Analysis
Hyde's final two games of the 2020 season were against the Rams, and his usage was limited to just seven touches for 31 yards. The 30-year-old running back's seventh NFL season was defined by injuries, specifically shoulder and hamstring issues, and he played just 10 games. In that stretch, Hyde carried 81 times for 356 yards (4.4 YPC) and four touchdowns and added 16 receptions (20 targets) for 93 yards). Hyde is set to be an unrestricted free agent in March. Chris Carson, who led the Seahawks' backfield with 968 yards from scrimmage, is in the same situation, and his status with the team could weigh into Hyde's decision to stay or not.

Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Hyde (illness) will play in Saturday's wild-card game against the Rams, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hyde missed the regular-season finale due to a non-COVID-19 illness, but he'll be back in action for the first round of playoffs. With Rashaad Penny back in the lineup, there are fewer reps to go around behind Chris Carson, and Penny could ultimately end up with more playing time Saturday.

Hyde (illness) won't play in Sunday's game against the 49ers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hyde hasn't tested positive for COVID-19, but he didn't travel with the team and will miss his sixth game of the season. The 30-year-old running back finished the 2020 regular season with 356 rushing yards and four touchdowns, adding 16 receptions (on 20 targets) for 93 yards. Hyde will aim to return for the playoffs. Rashaad Penny figures to see an uptick in usage behind Chris Carson on Sunday.

Hyde (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
EDGE Analysis
According to head coach Pete Carroll, Hyde sat out each of the Seahawks' three practices this week while battling flu-like symptoms, per Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic. Hyde hasn't missed a game since returning from a hamstring injury to face Arizona in Week 11, but he could be in danger of sitting out the regular-season finale. If Hyde is unable to go this weekend, Rashaad Penny would serve as the clear top understudy to lead back Chris Carson.

Hyde (illness) missed practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
With two absences under his belt during Week 17 prep, Hyde is trending in the wrong direction as he deals with an illness. If the Seahawks ultimately don't have his services Sunday versus the 49ers, Rashaad Penny is the likely candidate to slot in as the No. 2 running back to starter Chris Carson (foot).

Hyde (illness) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
At this time, Hyde's illness hasn't been linked to COVID-19. If he doesn't get cleared for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Rashaad Penny likely would take over the change-of-pace role behind lead back Chris Carson (foot) because DeeJay Dallas (ankle) is trending toward another absence.

Hyde rushed twice for eight yards and caught his lone target for 18 yards in Sunday's 20-9 win over the 49ers.
EDGE Analysis
Hyde logged 20 snaps on offense as the clear No. 2 behind Chris Carson, while Rashaad Penny played just four snaps. Carson will continue to be the bell cow in a Week 17 clash against the 49ers, leaving minimal fantasy upside for Hyde, especially if Penny receives an increased workload in his third game back.

Hyde rushed twice for 55 yards and a touchdown and caught two of three targets for eight yards in Sunday's 20-15 win over Washington.
EDGE Analysis
Hyde made his mark on the opening drive of the second half, ripping off a 50-yard touchdown -- the Seahawks' longest rushing score since Week 12 of the 2019 season. Still, the 30-year-old back was rarely involved, as Chris Carson handled a lion's share of the reps (18 total touches). Rashaad Penny figures to garner more looks moving forward, too, as he eases in from a lengthy ACL recovery. Therefore, it will be tough to rely on Hyde in fantasy championships, especially against the Rams' daunting run defense in Week 16.
