San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore is unlikely to play in the preseason this year. RBs Carlos Hyde and Jewel Hampton have both looked good so far during training camp. The injuries to RBs Kendall Hunter (knee) and LaMichael James (elbow) have left the team thin at the running back position. RB Marcus Lattimore isn't practicing yet due to physical limitations and not the mental side of his recovery from a significant knee injury in college.
Fantasy Tip: The Niners have even more reason to try to keep Gore healthy heading into the regular season now. With Hunter out for the year, Hyde's price will rise drastically, likely making him somewhat overvalued as a handcuff to Gore.

The San Francisco 49ers may consider RB Kendall Hunter as their No. 2 running back at this point, because they know he does well in pass protection and blitz pickup. The team has not seen RB Carlos Hyde and RB Marcus Lattimore in pads at this point and is not sure about their pass protection skills.

San Francisco 49ers rookie RB Carlos Hyde has picked up the team's terminology well in offseason workouts, and he's impressed offensive coordinator Greg Roman with his quick learning. "Since he got here from the draft, really impressed me as a guy that football just makes sense to him. If you could just tell him what to do, and you don't have to tell him too much. And that's a beautiful thing in a running back because they have a lot of adjustments to make and protection, et cetera," Roman said.
Fantasy Tip: Hyde will be a popular draft pick as running back depth or as a handcuff to Frank Gore, who is nearing the end of his career. However, don't forget that Kendall Hunter remains in the picture and would split touches with Hyde should Gore miss time with an injury. Regardless, he's a fine speculative pick with plenty of upside.

ESPN.com's Bill Williamson thinks San Francisco 49ers rookie RB Carlos Hyde will see more opportunities for carries than RB Marcus Lattimore (knee), who is recovering from a major knee injury. The Niners are expected to be cautious with Lattimore.
Fantasy Tip: While Frank Gore is nearing the end of his career and will need to be spelled much more often, don't forget that Kendall Hunter is still on roster and currently ahead of Hyde on the depth chart. Hyde could figure into the team's plans, but unless injuries occur ahead of him, he might not be a major factor.

The San Francisco 49ers selected Ohio State RB Carlos Hyde with the 57th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Fantasy Tip: The Niners are looking to eventually replace Frank Gore in the backfield, because he's nearing the end of his career. Hyde could wind up being the best value pick of the draft. There are a lot of mouths to feed at the RB position in SF, though, so Hyde will have to earn his touches. This pick puts the futures of LaMichael James and Marcus Lattimore in question.
