San Francisco 49ers star running back Carlos Hyde is considered questionable to face the Seattle Seahawks in the team’s week seven Thursday Night Football showdown. Hyde has been dealing with a sore foot and due to not getting in much practice time on a short week, there is a small chance the Niners could hold him out of the game.
RB Carlos Hyde (foot), WR Anquan Boldin (hamstring), RT Erik Pears (back) only 49ers questionable vs #Seahawks. All others hurt are probable

Hyde is tentatively expected to suit up for a huge NFC West clash, but with Reggie Bush (calf) likely returning this week, it’s not out of the realm of possibility for San Francisco to consider holding him out to get him to 100%. Wide receiver Anquan Boldin is also questionable, but is also expected to play.
The odds are Hyde suits up, but he’s clearly not at full strength and hasn’t delivered an elite fantasy performance since his crazy week one outing. It’s very unlikely he suddenly accomplishes that on a short week, at less than 100% and against a very tough Seahawks defense. Fading Hyde in daily fantasy football leagues isn’t a bad idea, while you probably have a better option on your bench in redraft leagues, as well. Reggie Bush would gain minor value if Hyde were to sit this one out, but with such a tough matchup, 49ers players in general don’t look too attractive this week.
