Hyde is slated to become an unrestricted free agent next week after declining an offer from the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Hyde signed a deal with the Chiefs last offseason, only to be dealt to the Texans at the end of the preseason after having lost the battle for running back slotting behind starter Damien Williams. Once in a Houston backfield without Lamar Miller (knee), Hyde paced the team with career highs in carries (245) and rushing yards (1,070), but predictably, he didn't make much of an impact as a receiver, hauling in 10 of 16 targets over the course of 16 games. Hyde seemingly has decided to test the market for his services, and his landing spot ultimately will determine his value.
Hyde ran for 44 yards on 13 carries and caught three of four targets for 18 receiving yards during Sunday's 51-31 divisional-round loss to the Chiefs.
The 6-foot, 229-pound bulldozer wrapped up his 2019 postseason with just 3.2 yards per carry, after establishing the second-best yards-per-rush rate of his career during the regular season (4.4). He characteristically remained a peripheral contributor in Houston's passing attack during the playoffs with five total targets, but he was bailed out somewhat in the wild-card round by hauling in a five-yard TD pass from Deshaun Watson. Sunday, he was held out of the end zone for just the second time since Week 14, as Houston managed only 10 points over the final 40 minutes of regulation against a resurgent Kansas City defense. The 29-year-old back is set to become a free agent this offseason, but he may be brought back if the coaching staff believes he can remain a viable contributor despite having six years of NFL tread on his tires.
Hyde carried the ball 16 times for 48 yards and caught his only target for a five-yard touchdown in Saturday's 22-19 overtime win over the Bills.
His fourth-quarter TD grab gave the Texans their first lead of the game, but overall, Hyde had trouble making a dent against a tough Bills defense -- his longest run went for only eight yards. He should find more room to operate next Sunday in Kansas City during the AFC divisional round, facing a Chiefs defense that allowed 4.9 yards a carry (28th in the league) and 128.2 rushing yards a game (26th) during the regular season.
Hyde had four carries for 13 yards and was not targeted in Sunday's 35-14 loss to the Titans.
Hyde was one of several skill position players given a light workload in the regular-season finale. He started and played just five snaps on Houston's first series before heading to the bench for the day. Hyde will resume his role as the Texans' lead back in Saturday's wild-card game against the Bills, who ranked 10th against the run in 2019.
Hyde ran for 27 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries and added a 10-yard catch during Saturday's 23-20 win over Tampa Bay.
Hyde helped give Houston a two-score lead midway through the second quarter, bouncing off of defenders for a tough one-yard touchdown run. From a yards-per-carry perspective, Saturday's matchup against a stout Buccaneers run defense was Hyde's worst game of the season, but he's otherwise been solid down the stretch with at least four yards per carry in six of his last eight games. He'll have an opportunity to rebound in the season finale against Tennessee next Sunday. The veteran back ran for 104 yards and a touchdown in the division matchup in Week 15.
Hyde (ankle) is listed as active for Saturday's game against the Buccaneers.
Hyde, who tied his season high in carries (26) in Week 15's win over the Titans en route to rushing for 104 yards and a TD, will be out there Saturday, but it remains to be seen how much, if at all, he'll be hampered by his ankle issue. Change-of-pace back Duke Johnson is next up for touches should Hyde be limited at all or suffer any in-game setbacks.
Hyde (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Buccaneers after returning to a limited practice Thursday.
Hyde's return to practice Thursday, albeit in a limited capacity, is encouraging, but those considering him in their Week 16 fantasy lineups will still want to circle back on his status leading up to Saturday's 1:00 ET kickoff. The running back tied his season-high in carries (26) in Week 15's win over the Titans, en route to rushing for 104 yards and a TD.
Hyde (ankle/not injury-related) didn't practice Wednesday.
Hyde was limited by an ankle injury Tuesday, but Wednesday's practice report added a "not injury-related" tag to the running back's name, suggesting his absence from the session may have been maintenance-related. In any case, final word on Hyde's status for Saturday's game against the Buccaneers will arrive Thursday, shortly after the Texans wrap up their final practice of Week 16.
Hyde was listed as a limited participant in Tuesday's practice due to an ankle injury.
With a Saturday matchup against the Buccaneers on tap for Week 16, the Texans are facing a quicker turnaround than normal coming off Sunday's 24-21 win over the Titans. To that end, Houston may just be managing Hyde's load carefully after he tied his season high with 26 carries versus Tennessee. He'll likely be ready to handle a full slate of snaps once Saturday arrives.
Hyde rushed 26 times for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' 24-21 win over the Titans on Sunday.
Hyde got the better of the Titans' normally stingy run defense with a workmanlike effort as his long run went for a modest 11 yards. The veteran back wasn't involved in the passing game whatsoever for the sixth time in the last eight contests, but he helped make up for it with his first 100-yard effort since Week 9, reaching his first career 1,000-yard rushing season. Hyde's 10-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter was also his first trip to the end zone in the last four games, and he'll look to build on Sunday's effort versus the Buccaneers in a Week 16 Saturday matchup.
Hyde rushed 14 times for 73 yards and caught two of three targets for another five yards in Sunday's 38-24 loss to the Broncos.
Houston trailed 38-3 in this one, so the team had to abandon the run, despite Hyde's robust average of 5.2 yards per carry. Hyde has rushed for 65 yards or more in five of his past six games, establishing a high floor ahead of his team's pivotal Week 15 trip to Tennessee.
Hyde rushed 10 times for 17 yards and caught his lone target for five yards in Sunday's 28-22 win over the Patriots.
Hyde had an extremely disappointing stat line when considering the Texans played with a lead for the entire contest. Part of the blame can be placed on the Patriots' stout run defense, which has stymied many a back this season. Still, it was the worst performance of the veteran's 2019 campaign, as the only other time he was limited to less than 20 yards (Week 3 against the Chargers) he was able to hit paydirt to salvage his fantasy line. Next week's opponent, the Denver Broncos, are far more susceptible to the run (113.5 rushing yards allowed per game) compared to the pass (207.5), giving Hyde good bounce-back potential for Week 14.
Hyde rushed 16 times for 67 yards in the Texans' 20-17 win over the Colts on Thursday.
Hyde led the Texans' backfield as usual, but he often found running room hard to come by against a stingy Colts front. The veteran back accrued almost half his production on a 33-yard scamper in the third quarter, leaving him with just an average of just 2.3 yards per tote on his other 15 carries. Hyde should continue in his usual lead-back capacity in a tough matchup versus the Patriots in Week 13, a week from Sunday.
Hyde rushed nine times for 65 yards and a touchdown and failed to bring in his only target in the Texans' 41-7 loss to the Ravens on Sunday.
Hyde's final numbers are largely a mirage, as 41 of his yards came on a fourth-quarter, garbage-time rushing score. The touchdown was Hyde's fourth of the campaign and first since Week 6. Hyde now has at least 65 rushing yards in four of his last five games, and although his nine carries Sunday were a season low, they were clearly a product of game script. Hyde will look to bounce back with his normal workload against the Colts in a Thursday night matchup.
Hyde rushed 19 times for 160 yards but wasn't targeted in the passing game and lost a fumble in Sunday's 26-3 win over the Jaguars in London.
Hyde could have had an even bigger day but watched Duke Johnson vulture a 1-yard touchdown in the third quarter. That was Johnson's first rushing score of the season, so it's hardly cause for concern, especially considering Hyde broke out for a season-high rushing total in this one, topping the 100-yard mark for just the second time in 2019. The 29-year-old running back will get to rest up during a Week 10 bye before returning stateside to face the Ravens in Week 11.
Hyde carried 19 times for 83 yards during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Raiders.
Hyde averaged a respectable 4.4 yards per carry against a tough Raiders front, with his long gain going for 20 yards. He received one target in the passing game but was unable to haul it in. Hyde also received a couple of carries in the red zone, but he was unable to convert in what amounted to a middling performance from a fantasy perspective. He'll look to make a larger impact next Sunday against the Jaguars in London.
Hyde rushed 19 times for 83 yards and had one target in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Raiders in Week 8.
The Texans found themselves trailing for much of the game, but not so much that they had to abandon the run. Hyde's 19 carries was his fourth-highest total, while the 83 yards were his third highest. He once again out-touched backfield mate Duke Johnson by a wide margin, 19-7, although it was Johnson that had the lone touchdown scored by a running back.
Hyde rushed 12 times for 35 yards and failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Colts.
Hyde couldn't find much running room, but he still finished as the team's leading rusher, edging out Duke Johnson by one yard and Deshaun Watson by three. Johnson -- who had seven carries in this one -- isn't much of a threat to Hyde's rushing workload, as Hyde has racked up double-digit rushing attempts in every game while getting at least 20 carries in three of seven contests. Expect a stronger performance out of Hyde against the Raiders in Week 8.
Hyde carried 26 times for 116 yards and a touchdown Sunday, adding one catch for 14 yards during the 31-24 win over the Chiefs.
Hyde was a workhorse in this one, touching the ball 26 times as he posted his highest output of scrimmage yards since Week 2 of the 2017 season. He managed a respectable average of 4.5 yards per carry and made noise with a two-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter. Hyde has now been given a whopping 47 carries over the last two weeks and seems to be the go-to option in the running game moving forward. He should receive his fair share of touches again in next Sunday's road matchup with the Colts.
Hyde registered 60 rushing yards and a touchdown on 21 carries and failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 53-32 win against the Falcons. He also fumbled once, but the loose ball was recovered by a teammate.
Given his lack of passing-game involvement -- just seven targets over the first five weeks of the season -- Hyde has proven to be a touchdown-dependent fantasy asset thus far in 2019. On Sunday, the veteran back punched in a one-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter to provide Houston with a lead that it would never relinquish, now providing him with two scores over the past three weeks. Despite Hyde's minimal pass-catching upside, the fact that he has averaged 14.6 rush attempts per game is encouraging as the Texans prepare to take on a Chiefs defense that is conceding an astronomical 5.8 yards per carry to opposing running backs.
