Despite having totaled 160 rushing yards in his matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans running back Carlos Hyde frustrated fantasy owners with a fumble on the one-yard line after breaking off a big run.

After hitting the hole and exploding for a 60-yard run, Hyde was caught from behind at the 1-yard line and stripped. The ball rolled into the end zone, the Jags recovered, and fantasy owners everywhere saw an opportunity for a monster game slip through their fingers.

Fortunately for Texans fans, the fumble didn't cost the Texans any ground in the game as Houston walked away with a 23-point win. Much of that came from Hyde who has 19 carriers for the aforementioned 160 yards.

At the end of the day, Hyde has given fantasy owners a lot to be happy about. With that being said, losing that fumble cost them all the chance at a monster start to their Sunday.
