Summary

Danny Woodhead is mainly a passing-down back, and therefore has value in PPR leagues. He is returning from a nasty ankle injury (including a fractured fibula) suffered in Week 3 of last season, but reportedly feels good in OTAs and is no longer affected by the injury. He's 30 years old, but his quickness and intelligence will guarantee him a regular (though limited) role in the Chargers' offense. (May 16)

Chargers | San Diego to use committee at RB (Wed Sep 2, 08:07 PM) - San Diego Chargers RBs Melvin Gordon, Danny Woodhead, Branden Oliver and Donald Brown will be part of a committee at running back this season, according to QB Philip Rivers. 'As Coach has always said I'm not saying anything out of the blue it's a running back by committee crew,' Rivers said. 'It's going to be a team effort in that bunch. We're going to need all of them to carry the load in the run game and to catch the ball out of the backfield.'

Our View: Message! Danny Woodhead is going to produce for PPR fantasy owners. Melvin Gordon is their hot rookie, but he's been struggling to impress in the preseason. As their 2015 first-round pick, Gordon will get every opportunity to prove himself as the lead back. However, he's struggled in pass-protection and is not as good of a receiver as Woodhead is. Start moving Gordon down your draft lists.
