1. Carlos Hyde, RB-49ers
The San Francisco 49ers will undoubtedly struggle this season after losing what seems like half their team, but there’s no rule that struggling teams can’t still have fantasy upside.
One of the bright spots for them last season was Carlos Hyde, who had some exciting moments backing up Frank Gore. Now, with Gore out of the picture, Hyde will take over the lead running back duties.
Yes, they added Reggie Bush, but he was not much of a factor last year in Detroit, and continues to have issues with injuries. Meanwhile, Hyde is a young player who’s had flashes of brilliance, and may end up as one of the best running backs on your team.
