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 | Danny Woodhead involved in passing game (Thu Jul 23, 12:39 PM) - San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead will remain involved in the passing game and on third downs.

Our View: Don't forget about Woodhead when you're considering rookie RB Melvin Gordon in fantasy drafts. Gordon is a capable receiver out of the backfield, and he'll be the lead back for the Chargers this year. However, Woodhead is too valuable as a change-of-pace back--so the Chargers aren't going to keep him off the field in certain situations. Woodhead has more value in PPR leagues because there's a chance he could catch 50-plus passes for the Chargers this season.
