He's really the only guy that compares to the climb that Phillip Lindsey had last year (two rounds from being a UDFA). I find it intriguing that Andy limited Darwin in the last game, and used Darrell the rest of the night. Almost like he seen enough and wanted to conserve him.

You convinced me enough to take him in the 19th round of a league.

Hyde hasn’t done much so far in pre season, couple rumors he’s on the roster bubble. Darwin reportedly has been working with first team in red zone/goal line situations. Darwin has looked great so far in pre season, is supposedly super strong with his weight lifting, and also has been praised for blitz pickup and passing game involvement. Damien Williams is a career backup with minimal actual playing time. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to pick Darwin if he’s available in double digit rounds, I expect by Labor Day weekend his ADP makes a big jump, and even then I’ll be willing to take him most likely.

(Rotoworld) The Athletic's Nate Taylor again left Carlos Hyde off his 53-man roster projection Tuesday.
Analysis: Hyde has been dreadful this preseason, forcing zero missed tackles despite his 6'/229 frame. He's rushed seven times for 25 yards (3.6 YPC) and one touchdown to go along with a fumble this past weekend against the Steelers. The Chiefs' starters played two series, and Damien Williams handled the first set with Hyde in on the second. Hyde was talked up by coach Andy Reid early in camp, but it's been quiet ever since as rookie Darwin Thompson has ran circles around him. Working against Hyde is he doesn't play special teams. Taylor has the Chiefs keeping Damien and Darrel Williams, Thompson, and converted-CB Tremon Smith in the backfield. The entire appeal with Hyde in fantasy was him merely wearing a Chiefs uniform. If he's cut, he obviously has zero value.

Esp in redraft.

In Dynasty i think it'll balance out over time, but not this year.

Thompson is practicing with the 1's now.

Were people waiting for this before moving him up draft boards?
