Hyder finished the 2020 campaign with 49 tackles (30 solo) and 8.5 sacks in 16 games. Hyder joined the 49ers as a depth option at what was a loaded defensive end position to begin the year. Injuries decimated San Francisco's defensive front, opening the door for the 29-year-old to take over as a starter and post a new career high in sacks. Hyder will be an unrestricted free agent this upcoming offseason, and his performance in 2020 should result in another career best in terms of salary as an edge rusher.
Hyder recorded four tackles (three solo), two sacks and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Rams. The 49ers' defensive front has been decimated by injuries this year, most notably Nick Bosa (torn ACL), but Hyder has been a bright spot. The 29-year-old has blown away the rest of the team, recording 7.5 sacks through 11 games while D.J. Jones is a distant second with just two sacks. Hyder sits a half sack away from the career high he recorded in 2016, when he played for Detroit.
Hyder finished with five tackles (two solo), a sack and a tackle for loss Sunday against the Saints. After recording just one sack over each of the last two seasons, Hyder now sits with 5.5 sacks in 2020 through 10 contests, his best mark since the 2016 campaign with Detroit. He's also collected 33 tackles (18 solo) this season for the 49ers.
Hyder collected three tackles (two solo), one sack and one tackle for loss Sunday against Seattle. Hyder has totaled just five total tackles over his last two contests, but he does have 4.5 sacks through eight contests this season. He'll look to apply pressure to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in Week 9.
Hyder had four tackles (three solo) and a half-sack during Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Eagles. The 29-year-old has played a significant role up front for San Fran this season, and he did so again Sunday by playing 47 of 62 defensive snaps. Hyder has 18 tackles (10 solo) and 2.5 sacks through four games.
