Carlos Hyde can help get Jacksonville’s offense moving again

Getty Jacksonville Jaguars new RB Carlos Hyde

The Jaguars (3-3) were willing to take on the financial commitment because leading rusher T.J. Yeldon will become a free agent at the end of this season. Hyde has been the team's bell-cow this season and leads the team in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns.

The Jaguars are moving to fill the hole left by Leonard Fournette's continued absence, acquiring running back Carlos Hyde from the Browns. The trade for Hyde cost the Jaguars only a 5th round draft pick in 2019. It will be the fifth game he's missed this season because of the nagging injury. The numbers have shown that the Browns are a better team when giving the ball to Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson; Hyde was just blocking those two from getting more touches. In addition to their own picks in the first six rounds, the Browns acquired a third-rounder from New England, Jacksonville's fifth-rounder, another fifth-rounder from New England and a seventh-rounder from Jacksonville.

If Hyde can come in and make an impact right away, he could help get the Jaguars back on the right path to the playoffs. Heck, he scored five TDs in the first four games and led the National Football League in carries through Week 5.

Chubb hasn't caught a single pass this year, so you'll likely be relying on him in the exact role Hyde held prior to the trade. The talented former 49'er will get more looks in Jacksonville. It's been three weeks, and Chubb has seen very little, if any, increase in his amount of carries.
