Summary

In Danny Woodhead's three seasons with the Chargers, he has proven to be a tremendously versatile running back who keeps getting thrust in to a larger role than initially planned due to injuries to others. In 2015, Woodhead played a huge role in the passing game when injuries at various points in the season hobbled Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates, and Stevie Johnson. In fact, Woodhead ended up leading the Chargers in receptions (81), receiving yards (756), and total touchdowns (9). If things go as planned in 2016, Woodhead will play a complementary role behind starter Melvin Gordon, but will still likely get the majority of the goal-line work and passing-down reps. You can view Woodhead as a handcuff to Gordon, but you can also view him as a solid fantasy RB3 in his own right. He has been a top-20 fantasy RB in each of his two healthy seasons with the Chargers, after all, finishing as RB19 in 2013 and as RB12 in 2015. Woodhead will be 31 years old this season, but has yet to show imminent signs of slowing down. (May 18)

Chargers | Chargers leaning towards RB committee (Fri May 27, 02:38 PM) - San Diego Chargers RBs Melvin Gordon, Danny Woodhead and Branden Oliver will each be 'used to their strengths' in the upcoming season in helping comprise a committee, according to running backs coach Ollie Wilson. 'Those guys can do a lot of different things and they have all bought in to working together and having their own role instead of being (angry) not getting all the touches,' he said. 'They understand we donít have just one starter here. They are all part of our scheme and system.'

Our View: Fantasy owners are anticipating this according to the latest ADP for the Chargers backs. The news of Gordon's microfracture knee surgery has caused his draft stock to take a tumble. He currently sits at RB27 (6.07) while Woodhead is at RB24 (5.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.
