Carlos Hyde, Cleveland Browns at Oakland Raiders
You talk about tough matchups and that’s exactly what Hyde has. The Raiders are giving up the 10th fewest fantasy points to the position, but they’ve given up two 100-yard games already and Hyde has proven that 1) he’s healthy and 2) he’s getting an incredible workload, averaging 21 carries and with Baker Mayfield now at the helm, Hyde will be entrusted to carry the ball a lot, especially in the red zone. It’s a smart way to keep the offense low risk and open up Mayfield’s play action. If the Week 3 comeback was any indication, of the type of balanced offense we can expect, then Hyde will remain a quality start.
