Seahawks’ Carlos Hyde out with non-COVID illness for Week 17 against 49ers
Carlos Hyde will not be with the Seahawks for their quest toward the NFC’s number one seed. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Hyde is out with an illness that is not coronavirus and will miss Seattle’s meeting with San Francisco. The ‘Hawks can still clinch the top playoff-berth with a win combined with a Packers loss and Saints loss or tie.
With Hyde out, expect a heavy dose of Chris Carson. Carson hasn’t eclipsed 20 carries in a game this season, in part due to Hyde eating into his usage. With the Seahawks’ handcuff back nursing an illness, Carson is worth a look in the player props department at FanDuel’s Sportsbook. Heavily owned in nearly all fantasy leagues, Carson could be the man to lead poolies to a league title this week. And while he carries a hefty $7000 price tag in FanDuel DFS he is certainly worth consideration.
Rashaad Penny jumps to the backup RB role and could steal some carries from Carson. Penny, who has shown great promise, should see an uptick in production and fantasy value. Russell Wilson’s ground-game may also receive a boost against the 49ers this week.
