Gets $2.15 million guaranteed

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 reports.

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.

Links up with college coach

The Jaguars and Hyde agreed to a two-year, $6 million contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

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.

Finishes in cold spell

Hyde rushed four times for five yards in Saturday's 30-20 wild-card loss to the Rams.

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.

Cleared for wild-card round

Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Hyde (illness) will play in Saturday's wild-card game against the Rams, Brady Henderson of reports.

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.

Jan 5, 2021 1:32 PM EST

Ruled out for Week 17

Hyde (illness) won't play in Sunday's game against the 49ers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

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.

Carries questionable tag for finale

Hyde (illness) has been labeled as questionable heading into Sunday's game against the 49ers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Hyde sat out the Seahawks' final two practice sessions of the week Wednesday and Thursday will recuperating from an illness, keeping the 30-year-old's availability in question for the wrap up to the regular season. He hasn't missed a game since returning from a hamstring injury to face Arizona in Week 11. If Hyde is ultimately unable to pull through his illness in time for kickoff, it would likely mean increased opportunities for Rashaad Penny, with Deejay Dallas (ankle) confirmed out for Week 17.

Jan 1, 2021 1:39 PM EST

Sits out again Thursday

Hyde (illness) missed practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

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).

Dec 31, 2020 4:55 PM EST

Misses practice with illness

Hyde (illness) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

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.

Dec 30, 2020 4:43 PM EST

Registers 26 yards

Hyde rushed twice for eight yards and caught his lone target for 18 yards in Sunday's 20-9 win over the 49ers.

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.

Dec 28, 2020 1:04 PM EST

Rips off 50-yard score

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.

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.

Dec 20, 2020 5:14 PM EST

Puts in full practice

Hyde (toe) practiced fully Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: While Hyde upped his activity level from Wednesday's limited session, fellow running back Chris Carson (foot) maintained that listing for a second straight day. In three games working in tandem with Carson, Hyde has totaled 37 touches for 106 yards from scrimmage, which is a far cry from the former's 41 touches for 267 total yards and three TDs. Despite the guaranteed reps, Hyde hasn't been able to do much with the workload.

Dec 17, 2020 4:40 PM EST

Limited during Wednesday's session

Hyde (toe) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Hyde logged a trio of limited practices last week before leading the Seahawks with 15 carries for 66 yards in a 40-3 triumph over the Jets. The Seahawks are once again capping the 30-year-old running back's practice reps for what is likely maintenance purposes. Chris Carson (foot) was also limited Wednesday. If both players are healthy in Sunday's game against Washington, Hyde should serve as the clear second fiddle to Carson as long as the game is relatively close.

Dec 16, 2020 4:25 PM EST

Leads backfield in carries Sunday

Hyde carried the ball 15 times for 66 yards in Sunday's 40-3 win over the Jets.

Analysis: With the game well in hand by the second quarter, Hyde mixed in regularly with Chris Carson and ended up seeing the same number of touches on the day, although Carson's 98 scrimmage yards far surpassed Hyde's total. He's more likely to take a back seat to Carson in Week 15's road tilt against a Washington squad that should put up more of a fight.

Dec 13, 2020 7:03 PM EST

Ready for Week 14

Hyde (toe) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game versus the Jets, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Despite having limitations on his practice reps this week, Hyde has been cleared for Week 14 action. The same can be said for Chris Carson (foot), so with Travis Homer (knee) doubtful to play and Rashaad Penny (knee) still on the PUP list, Seattle is slated to roll with a three-player backfield Sunday. In Week 13 against the Giants, Carson paced the unit with 16 touches and a 58-percent share of the snaps on offense. Behind Carson, Hyde had five touches on 25 percent of those plays, while DeeJay Dallas compiled two and 17, respectively.

Dec 11, 2020 1:22 PM EST

Limited again Thursday

Hyde (toe) was limited at Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: As was Chris Carson (foot). Assuming the Seahawks end up rolling with the same three-player backfield Sunday versus the Jets as they did Week 13, Carson will lead the unit, followed by Hyde and DeeJay Dallas. Carson easily outpaced the other two this past Sunday against the Giants, compiling 16 touches for 100 yards from scrimmage and one TD. Meanwhile, Hyde had five touches for 11 total yards, and Dallas matched Hyde's yardage on two catches.

Dec 10, 2020 4:57 PM EST

Puts in limited practice

Hyde (toe) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Both Hyde and Chris Carson (foot) were listed similarly on Seattle's first Week 14 injury report. In Week 13 against the Giants, Hyde took a back seat to Carson, with the former earning five touches on 25 percent of the snaps on offense to the latter's 16 and 58. Meanwhile, DeeJay Dallas picked up the remaining two touches and 17 percent with Travis Homer (knee) still sidelined. As long as the status quo holds, a similar breakdown of reps can be expected Sunday versus the Jets.

Dec 9, 2020 4:48 PM EST

Limited usage in loss

Hyde rushed twice for one yard and caught all three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 17-12 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: After narrowly leading the backfield in carries last week against the Eagles, Hyde took a clear back seat to Chris Carson in Week 13, getting out-snapped by a 42-18 margin. This is the usage we'd expect from Hyde while Carson is healthy. The veteran running back could face competition for the No. 2 role if Rashaad Penny (knee) gets healthy soon. For the time being, he'll spell Carson and possibly take some goal-line work. The Seahawks host the Jets in Week 14.

Dec 7, 2020 8:43 AM EST

Playing Week 13

Hyde (toe) is listed as active Sunday versus the Giants.

Analysis: Hyde sandwiched limited sessions around Thursday's absence from practice ahead of being considered questionable for this contest. When Adam Schefter of ESPN reported late Saturday that Hyde was expected to play Sunday, he also revealed the running back is tending to a turf toe injury. Such issues can linger for weeks, but Hyde will gut it out as he likely supplements a ground game led by Chris Carson.

Dec 6, 2020 11:41 AM EST

Set to play Sunday

Hyde (toe), who is listed as questionable, is expected to play Sunday against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The 30-year-old has been battling a turf toe injury and put in a pair of limited practices this week, and he's on track to suit up for Sunday's contest. Assuming he plays, Hyde should fill a secondary role with top tailback Chris Carson (foot) clear of an injury designation this weekend.

Dec 5, 2020 9:34 PM EST

Questionable for Week 13

Hyde (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest versus the Giants, Joe Fann of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

Analysis: Hyde was limited at Wednesday's walkthrough before the Seahawks kept him off the field Thursday. Still, he has a chance to suit up this weekend, in spite of his toe injury. Seattle ruled out Travis Homer (wrist/thumb/knee) yet again, while Chris Carson (foot) doesn't have a designation, so Hyde likely will be the second fiddle, at best, out of the backfield if he's cleared to play.
