    Ravens' Danny Woodhead: Unfulfilling first season in Baltimore

    Danny Woodhead finished his first season in Baltimore with 14 carries for 56 yards to go with 33 receptions for 200 yards over eight games.The veteran was acquired in the offseason with the idea of becoming the Baltimore Ravens' next high-volume pass catcher out of the backfield. The early returns were promising as he caught his first three targets for 33 yards in the first half of the season opener against the Bengals before a hamstring injury knocked him out for eight games. Woodhead was moderately productive down the stretch, averaging 4.5 targets per game in the second half of the season, but Javorius Allen and even Alex Collins started to take passing-down snaps away from him. The Ravens are financially committed to Woodhead for two more seasons and quarterback Joe Flacco's penchant for checkdowns means that Woodhead should continue to see a fair amount of targets, but his complete lack of utility as a rusher coupled with his minimal touchdown upside render him as a PPR-only type of fantasy option.

    Ravens' Danny Woodhead: Catches six passes

    Danny Woodhead caught six of seven targets for 31 yards and gained one yard on his only carry in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Browns.Woodhead has been a useful part of the Baltimore offense, but he isn't getting a ton of volume and hasn't seen much work in the red zone. He's yet to reach 50 scrimmage yards in a contest, and a Week 16 matchup with the Colts would seem to favor Alex Collins and Javorius Allen over Woodhead, as the Baltimore Ravens probably won't need to attempt too many throws.

    Ravens' Danny Woodhead: Nabs four receptions

    Danny Woodhead had four catches for 29 yards and added two carries for seven yards in Sunday's 39-38 loss to the Steelers.The Baltimore Ravens ramped up Woodhead's usage as a pass catcher, targeting him five times after his two-target outing against the Lions. He responded with four grabs, which is one shy of his season high. However, Woodhead's usage as a runner has been limited since returning from a hamstring injury that kept him out eight games. He's seen a total of 10 carries in that four-game stretch and has been held to single-digit yardage in three of those contests. Woodhead is unlikely to see an uptick in carries with Alex Collins and Javorius Allen running well, but he figures to see steady work in the passing game the rest of the way.

    Ravens' Danny Woodhead: Minimal production Sunday

    Danny Woodhead had three carries for nine yards to go with two catches for 14 yards in Sunday's win over the Lions.It was a muted outing from Woodhead, who saw roughly the same amount of snaps as he did a week ago (22) but had his usage rate plummet. Woodhead had caught at least four passes in each of his previous two games but only garnered two targets against the Lions. Part of that can be attributed to Joe Flacco taking more shots down the field to his wide receivers rather than checking it down to his running backs like Woodhead. Flacco will likely revert to more check downs next week against Pittsburgh to keep the pass rush honest, so look for Woodhead to see more chances in Week 14.

    Ravens' Danny Woodhead: Posts 45 total yards

    Danny Woodhead had four carries for 22 yards and caught all four of his targets for 23 yards in Monday's win over the Texans.In his second game back from injured reserve, Woodhead was slightly more involved in the run game and it paid dividends, as he averaged 5.5 yards per carry. Woodhead has also maintained a role on passing downs since returning, catching nine of 10 targets for 44 yards. His production as a runner will likely be unpredictable with Alex Collins and Javorius Allen still in the mix, but Woodhead's capability as a pass catcher is why Baltimore signed him in the offseason, so look for him to continue seeing regular work out of the backfield.

    Ravens' Danny Woodhead: Won't have limitations

    Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Marty Morhnhinweg said Danny Woodhead won't have a snap count Monday against the Texans, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.Woodhead didn't really appear to have any limitations in a 23-0 win over the Packers last week, but he ended up with only six touches (five catches) on 13 snaps due to the blowout nature of the contest. It's notable that he was targeted on more than one-third of his snaps, as similar usage could lead to some very productive days when the Ravens find themselves in more competitive contests. Monday's game won't necessarily qualify, as the Ravens are heavy favorites against a Houston team that's gone 1-3 with a minus-44 point differential in Tom Savage's four starts.

    Ravens' Danny Woodhead: Catches five passes in return

    Danny Woodhead (hamstring) caught five of six targets for 21 yards and took one carry for two yards in Sunday's 23-0 win over the Packers.Woodhead returned from injured reserve and instantly replaced Javorius Allen as the Baltimore Ravens' back of choice in passing situations. Allen entered the game as the team leader in carries, receptions and targets, but he finished with only three carries for eight yards and one catch for nine yards on one target. Alex Collins had 20 carries for 49 yards and a touchdown while also catching four of seven targets for 22 yards, though the split with Woodhead actually looked pretty even early in the game. With Baltimore leading by at least 13 points for the final 28 minutes, Woodhead didn't have much of a role in the second half. He should be a bit busier if the Texans are able to keep things close in a Week 12 matchup on Monday Night Football.

    Ravens' Danny Woodhead: Activated to 53-man roster

    Danny Woodhead (hamstring) is eligible to play Sunday against the Packers after being activated off the IR-R on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.Woodhead injured his hamstring in Week 1 and has been sidelined since. The Baltimore Ravens seemed optimistic regarding the veteran running back's status throughout the week, so this news does not come as too much of a surprise. He has been practicing with the team for two weeks, but it remains to be seen what type of workload he will see in his return. Javorius Allen figures to see his role as the prime pass-catching back take the biggest hit in Woodhead's return.

    Ravens' Danny Woodhead: Finds fate in hands of doctors

    Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said the team's medical staff will make the final decision on Danny Woodhead's (hamstring) status for Sunday's game in Green Bay, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.Harbaugh did at least provide a hint when he said that Woodhead did pretty much everything in practice this week and looked good in the process. The veteran pass-catching back has been practicing with the team the past two weeks, hoping to return when first eligible Sunday. Should Woodhead pull it off, Javorius Allen might find that his role quickly evaporates. Allen has caught 39 of 49 targets (including two touchdowns) during Woodhead's eight-game absence, but Allen's meager average of 4.8 yards per reception suggests the Ravens will be pleased to get an upgrade. Woodhead was injured on the team's first drive of the season, after catching three passes for 33 yards. The Ravens need to remove him from injured reserve by 4 p.m. EDT on Saturday if he's going to return for Sunday's game.

    Ravens' Danny Woodhead: Looks active at practice

    Danny Woodhead (hamstring) appeared to take part in most activities at Wednesday's practice, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.Woodhead is still on injured reserve, which means he isn't included on the Baltimore Ravens' official injury report. It sounds as if he might be a full participant if the Ravens could list him, though the team hasn't confirmed that he'll return from IR when first eligible Sunday against Green Bay. Whenever he's ready -- be it this week or in the future -- Woodhead will likely replace Javorius Allen as the Ravens' primary pass-catching back. Allen has parlayed the role into team-leading outputs in receptions (39) and targets (50), though he's no match for Woodhead when it comes to receiving skills out of the backfield.
