    Chargers' Danny Woodhead: Slow game versus the Chiefs

    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.

    Chargers' Danny Woodhead: Scores against Bears

    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.

    Chargers' Danny Woodhead: Only five touches in loss

    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.

    Chargers' Danny Woodhead: Career game in loss

    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.

    Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (ankle) misses practice Wednesday

    Chargers running back Melvin Gordon (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. The rookie back is "tentatively expected to play" this Sunday against the Raiders, per the San Diego Union Tribune. While the Chargers aren't going to stop giving Gordon the ball, it's fair to speculate that he may lose touches to Branden Oliver and Danny Woodhead.

    Chargers' Danny Woodhead: Five receptions for 63 yards in loss

    Woodhead caught five passes on seven targets for 63 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss at Green Bay. He also rushed seven times for just eight yards. Starter Melvin Gordon fumbled twice in the first half, losing one, so Woodhead and Branden Oliver took over in San Diego's backfield for most of the game. The diminutive Woodhead had a couple chances at the game-tying touchdown in the final minute of regulation, but was stuffed twice around the goal line, and had a pass thrown his way batted away in the end zone on fourth down to end the game. He has only received double-digit carries once in a game this year, but he's delivered in PPR formats, turning 34 targets into 26 catches through six weeks. The game script could favor Gordon at home next week against the Raiders, although Woodhead should be good for his usual strong receiving numbers, with a chance to score a touchdown.

    Chargers RB Danny Woodhead gains 76 total yards on MNF

    Chargers pass-catching back Danny Woodhead rushed four times for 10 yards and caught five passes (on seven targets) for 66 yards in the loss to the Steelers on Monday night. Woodhead's attempts and yards on the ground represented a season-low, but he compensated by ranking second in receiving yards among San Diego players. He also continued to prove his extra value in PPR formats, which should sustain itself over the course of the season even if rookie Melvin Gordon commands the bulk of the backfield touches.

    Chargers RB Branden Oliver invisible in Sunday victory

    Chargers running back Branden Oliver did not record a single touch in the defeat of Cleveland on Sunday. The San Diego running game is clearly a two-man show with Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead taking the meaningful snaps. Consider Oliver nothing more than insurance.

    Chargers RB Danny Woodhead racks up 138 totals yards

    Chargers running back Danny Woodhead ran eight times for 54 yards and caught 4 of 4 targets for 84 yards in Sunday's 30-27 win over the Browns. Woodhead made a couple of really nice plays, including a career-best 61-yard catch, but his biggest contribution was on a 19-yard run in the final minute of regulation that put the Chargers in field goal range for the game-winning kick. Meanwhile, rookie RB Melvin Gordon was somewhat bottled up Sunday, rushing for just 38 yards on 12 carries. Expect Woodhead to see most of the work on passing downs and in the red zone moving forward, unless Gordon really busts out. In Week 5, Woodhead will square off against the Steelers on Monday Night Football.

    Chargers RB Danny Woodhead nets five carries Sunday

    Chargers running back Danny Woodhead carried five times for 16 yards in Sunday's game against the Vikings and caught three of his four targets for 32 yards. After a pair of double-digit fantasy point totals to start the season, Woodhead came back down to Earth on Sunday, as he received a season-low eight touches. He won't always find success on the ground, with Melvin Gordon handling most of those duties, but the Chargers seem committed to using his receiving skills out of the backfield and he is now averaging 40 receiving yards per game. The Browns, who just allowed 233 total yards to Oakland running backs, will visit the Chargers in Week 4.
