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)

Latest News

Chargers | Danny Woodhead has ankle sprain (Wed Jun 15, 06:42 PM) - Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle in practice Wednesday, June 15.

Our View: A sprain is OK, though we hope he can get it right before camp as those things can linger a bit. Woodhead has a good chance to put up RB3 numbers in a standard league and perhaps low-end RB2 numbers in a PPR league.

Chargers| Danny Woodhead hurt, walks off (Wed Jun 15, 03:19 PM) - San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (leg) was injured during practice Wednesday, June 15, but walked off the field under his own power.

Our View: It doesn't seem serious, but you never know. Keep it locked here and we'll keep you up to date. Woodhead has been a versatile weapon for the Chargers and should do the same this season, though he may see less passes thrown his way if the receivers are less banged up. We could see him as a solid RB3 in a standard league or as a borderline RB2/RB3 in a PPR league.
