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 | Danny Woodhead back at full health (Mon Jul 25, 05:32 PM) - San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) said he's as healthy as he's been in a long time after suffering a scary ankle injury this offseason. The versatile running back added that he feels great heading into the 2016 season.

Our View: The Chargers want Melvin Gordon to be the featured back, but it could be Woodhead who emerges as the best fantasy option. Fantasy owners currently feel that way. Woodhead has a current ADP of RB20 (5.02) while Gordon is coming off the board at RB33 (7.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.
