...and it's apparently not an April Fools move.

Kyle Juszczyk and Tim Hightower are a lot better running backs than what was there behind Carlos Hyde previously.

Could be a solid ball control offense.

Could also be a quagmire now at RB. I'll avoid the situation entirely me thinks.

Think it's a great pick up for the Niners.

Does nothing to hurt the Value of Hyde.

If Hyde can stay healthy I like him as a sold Rb2.

Hightower helps the Niners if or even when Hyde gets hurt.

Hyde is the guy to get 60% of the rb touches. Thankfully there finally appears to be some coherent planning coming out of Santa Clara. They've been adding players who appear to already know some of the offense

Don't know what to make of this...Hyde losing touches or not.

Yes, adding Juszczyk & Hightower should help Hyde. He'll definitely be a top rb2 because he has better backs behind him. Plus it should help keep him healthy.
