Hyde rushed 14 times for 78 yards and a touchdown while failing to haul in his lone target in Sunday's 26-16 win over Houston.
The highlight of Hyde's afternoon was his first touchdown since Week 6. He was originally bottled up down the middle on that play, but bounced it outside for a two-yard score to make it 10-3 just before the two-minute warning in the first half. San Francisco has won consecutive road games with Jimmy Garoppolo under center, so Hyde's workload should remain lofty at home next week against the Titans.
Hyde rushed 17 times for 54 yards and added 12 more while catching three of five pass attempts in Sunday's 15-14 victory over the Bears.
While it was hoped that a change at quarterback might mean improved production from Hyde, such was not the case in Jimmy Garoppolo's first start for San Francisco. It was the 26-year-old's sixth straight contest without a touchdown and second straight with fewer than 70 total yards. To make matters worse, Matt Breida also saw 12 carries and nearly equaled Hyde's output with 45 yards. No matter who is under center in Week 14, the former Buckeye faces a tough Houston run defense and will be difficult to trust as much more than a flex option.
Hyde rushed for 47 yards on 16 carries and added 21 yards on seven catches during Sunday's 24-13 loss to Seattle.
Sunday's outing snapped a two-game streak in which Hyde had topped 100 total yards. Though it's hard to find many silver linings in San Francisco's season, Hyde has actually averaged an impressive 85 total yards per game this year and is well on his way to shattering his career high for a season. What's held him back from a fantasy perspective is the fact that he's scored in just two games this season. That might be an issue more illustrative of the 49ers' overall struggles and might be solved to a certain extent should Jimmy Garoppolo be handed the keys to the offense.
Hyde gained 98 yards on 17 carries and caught two passes for an additional six yards during Sunday's 31-21 win over the Giants.
Hyde averaged 5.8 yards per carry in this one en route to his best rushing performance since the second week of the season. He tied for third on the team in targets after wreaking havoc in the passing game last week, but he was only able to make a modest contribution in that department. While he's scored just four times this season, Hyde has topped 75 scrimmage yards in eight of 10 games and has seen increased involvement through the air. The potential switch to Jimmy Garoppolo under center following the team's upcoming bye can only help the tailback, who could see less attention in opposing gameplans if the team establishes some sort of consistent passing attack.
Hyde was ejected from Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Quarterback C.J. Beathard took a hit from Cardinals safety Antoine Bethea during a foot-first slide, inducing a brawl between those on the field. In the aftermath, Hyde was among three players booted from the contest -- also, the Cards' Haason Reddick and Frostee Rucker -- which won't allow him to build upon his 125 yards from scrimmage, including 84 yards from nine catches (on 11 targets). It remains to be seen if there will be any additional punishment from the NFL, but Hyde is the clear-cut No. 1 running back in San Francisco.
