Woodhead was an RB1 on average in PPR leagues in 2015, and he'll get an inflated opportunity in the passing game for the first four contests while Kenneth Dixon is suspended in an offense that loves to target the running back and has a shortage of proven wide receivers. He fits well as part of a best ball draft approach that waits on running back until the mid-rounds.
Woodhead tore an ACL on September 18, 2016. He has been a full participant in OTAs and there's no sign that he will be limited in training camp.

Summary

Woodhead enters a high-potential situation after coming over from San Diego in free agency. He's expected to be the third-down back and dominate the passing downs snaps right away. But the team would be wise to take a cautious approach with a 32 year-old that relies on quickness and agility coming off a torn ACL. Because Baltimore has two big-play receivers who are typically low-volume players and a tight ends group with two aging players, Woodhead is a legitimate candidate to lead this team in receptions, if he proves to be back to full health of course.

Ravens | Joe Flacco excited by Danny Woodhead (Thu Jul 20, 12:05 AM) - Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead has impressed his new teammates thus far -- specifically QB Joe Flacco -- not just with what he can do after making a reception, but also before making the catch. 'Really, ever since we lost Ray Rice, we haven't had a type of back that's quite like how Ray was and quite like how Danny is in the passing game,' Flacco said. 'They just have a very good feel for when they're open and how to get open, how to sit in holes, how to find my eyes, and you can already see that. You can see he has a really good feel for those kinds of things. If you remember back, obviously, Ray was really good at doing that, and that gives a lot to your offense for sure.'

Ravens | Terrance West the Week 1 starter? (Fri Jul 7, 09:58 PM) - Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West is projected to be the starter in Week 1, according to Ryan Mink of BaltimoreRavens.com, with RB Danny Woodhead seeing some carries but being used mainly in the passing game.

Our View: West has RB2 value for the first four weeks while Kenneth Dixon is suspended, but after Dixon returns this will turn into an ugly three-way committee. The Ravens backfield didn't support one consistent fantasy starter as a two-way committee last year, so the outlook isn't great for any of these backs. Woodhead in PPR leagues is best commodity because of the high target volume to running backs in this offense.
