How to handle Carlos Hyde injury in Week 5 fantasy football

Carlos Hyde is on the Seahawks final injury report for Week 5. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.

Game status: Carlos Hyde is INACTIVE for Week 5.

Seattle Seahawks running back Carlos Hyde is listed as questionable on the team’s official Week 5 injury report. Hyde is dealing with shoulder injury. He missed last week’s game with the same issue.

Fantasy impact: Carlos Hyde injury

Hyde was able to get in some limited work in practice this week, ahead of Seattle’s Sunday night game against the Vikings. But the same was true last week, and he still missed that game.

Whether he plays this game or not, Hyde’s role in the Seahawks offense is too limited to be of fantasy value. Running back Chris Carson gets the lion’s share of the work in this backfield. Carson, who scored twice last week against the Dolphins, has been limited in practice this week too, but he is not listed on the injury report. He’ll be a must-start player in this game, with the chance to rack up big points against a weak Vikings defense.
