Woodhead had four carries for eight yards and caught all six of the passes thrown his way for 39 yards in Sunday's win at Jacksonville. This was another rather slow game for Woodhead despite the fact that the offense had a much better showing overall. With Melvin Gordon getting the bulk of the rushing attempts each week, Woodhead usually does his best work on receptions out of the backfield, but he only has 48 receiving yards over the last two games and has only scored one touchdown in the month of November. Still, Woodhead has been averaging 11 total touches per game and is a safe bet to continue producing at about that level going forward.
Woodhead had six carries for seven yards and one reception (on two targets) for nine yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. This was a dreadful game for the entire Chargers offense, and Woodhead was no exception. The 16 total yards were by far his lowest total of the season. He will look to bounce back next week against the Jaguars.
Woodhead rushed six times for 33 yards and caught six passes (on 10 targets) for 78 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's loss to the Bears. Woodhead led the Chargers in both rushing and receiving Monday night, fueling an otherwise depleted offense. Like most weeks, Woodhead played second fiddle in terms of touches to rookie Melvin Gordon in the running game, but managed to excel as a target out of the backfield, catching a 14-yard touchdown early in Monday's contest. That marked Woodhead's fifth score of this season, bolstering Woodhead's already impressive PPR value, as he now boasts 45 catches and 751 all-purpose yards through nine games played.
Woodhead rushed three times for nine yards and caught two passes on two targets for 36 receiving yards Sunday against the Ravens. Melvin Gordon dominated the backfield touches Sunday, rushing 18 times for 54 yards, and the Chargers appear to be comfortable giving the rookie another run as long as he can avoid fumbling. Woodhead's fantasy value is a bit limited if Gordon keeps dominating the touches, though he does usually make an impact in the passing game. Up next is a Week 9 home game against the Bears before their Week 10 bye.
Woodhead caught a career-high 11 passes on 12 targets for 75 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 37-29 loss to the Raiders. He also carried the ball five times as a runner, adding 26 yards on the ground. Woodhead surprisingly didn't play much in the second half, until late in the fourth quarter, when he racked up loads of catches and scored both of his touchdowns. The undersized Woodhead continues to catch a ton of passes, with 37 grabs on the season, and thus has reestablished himself as an attractive option in PPR formats. He's got a decent matchup in Week 8, facing the Ravens in Baltimore.
