Player Outlook

Danny Woodhead is one of the best running backs you will find in PPR leagues and his total stats always look good in standard formats. In 2015, Woodhead had 97 carries for 335 yards and three touchdowns and 81 catches for 756 yards and six touchdowns for the Chargers. His receptions were the best among running backs, and he also finished as the No. 11 running back in standard formats. While he should be started as at least a flex option in PPR leagues (he had at least five catches in nine games), he scored double digits in Fantasy points in a standard league in only five outings since he scored touchdowns in just four games. We'd love to see him spread out his production, but you know what you're getting with Woodhead as the passing-downs complement to Melvin Gordon. He posted similar stats in 2013 (106 carries for 429 yards and two touchdowns and 76 catches for 605 yards and six touchdowns) before getting hurt in 2014. He is worth a mid-round pick in all standard formats and a fourth- or fifth-round selection in PPR.

  • Chargers' Danny Woodhead: Fully healthy again
    By RotoWire Staff

    Woodhead is fully healthy ahead of the start of training camp Saturday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Woodhead sprained his ankle at the end of San Diego's minicamp this spring, but the time off has fortunately allowed him to make a full recovery. With teammate Melvin Gordon (knee) coming off microfracture surgery, Woodhead should be plenty involved out of the backfield early on, and is coming off a season in which he led the Chargers in catches (80), receiving yards (755) and receiving touchdowns (six). With numbers like those, the veteran continues to stand out in PPR leagues, making his return to health encouraging for the Chargers and fantasy owners alike.

  • Woodhead (ankle) is expected to be healthy for training camp, Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Woodhead sprained his ankle during the second-to-last day of minicamp, but was able to walk off under his own power. Considering Melvin Gordon may need some time to get his feet underneath him following offseason microfracture knee surgery, the 32-year-old running back is expected to be one of the main weapons for the Chargers, particularly in third down and no-huddle situations.

  • Chargers' Danny Woodhead: Banged up during minicamp
    By RotoWire Staff

    Woodhead suffered an ankle injury during Wednesday's minicamp, per ESPN.com reports. During team drills, Woodhead appeared to get tangled up with an offensive lineman and fall to the ground with a left ankle injury. Fortunately, Woodhead was subsequently observed walking off the field on his own strength. The injury isn't expected to be serious, but he should be considered questionable for San Diego's final day of minicamp. Woodhead's status for training camp doesn't appear to be in any jeopardy, though.

  • Woodhead gained 11 yards on five carries and secured eight of 10 targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Broncos. One week after gaining five yards per carry against the Raiders, Woodhead struggled to find any running room against a stout Broncos front. He also recorded eight catches for the second straight week, and managed at least 50 yards receiving in each of the season's last three games. With 2015 first-round pick Melvin Gordon having significantly underwhelmed in his first season, Woodhead proved to be a invaluable component of the Chargers running game and to an even greater extent, their short-range passing attack. His pass-catching prowess allowed San Diego to often replace an absymal ground attack with short throws to Woodhead that were both safe and often productive. The eight-year veteran received a career-high 96 targets and equaled a career-best six receiving touchdowns. Under contract through the end of next season, Woodhead figures to once again be an important component of the Chargers' offensive attack in 2016.

  • Woodhead rushed for 55 yards on 11 carries and caught eight of his 10 targets for 53 yards in Thursday's 23-20 overtime loss against the Raiders. It would have been very unlikely for Woodhead to match his production from Week 15, but he still had a very productive night, despite not getting in the end zone. Donald Brown led the team with 14 carries, but he amassed just 17 yards while getting the lone score on the ground. Woodhead should once again be very involved in the Chargers rushing and passing attacks in next week's season finale in Denver.
