Danny Woodhead, RB, Chargers
2014 Outlook: Quality BackupLast updated on Jul-14-2014 by Jeb Gorham
Danny Woodhead is a traditional pass-catching RB who will also carry the ball a handful of times per game. Woodhead can be a quality backup in PPR leagues, and would fit nicely as a flex in your roster. The big question is whether or not head coach Mike McCoy and San Diego will opt to give Woodhead the same workload as last season. Woodhead accumulated 1,034 total yards and scored eight TDs. His 76 receptions were the second-most for a running back in the NFL, trailing only the Saints' Pierre Thomas (77). The addition of Donald Brown is a definite concern, although Woodhead (now 29 years old) is in a contract year so the Chargers may have made the move to plan ahead for the future. The former Chadron State back is the 39th RB drafted with an ADP of 117.62. This makes him a Round 10 pick. Such a spot in the draft is usually reserved for bench players.
Editor's note: Woodhead was a great PPR pick last year. He never rushed for more than 52 yards or gained more than 77 receiving yards in a game; however, his steady yardage as both a runner and receiver made him supremely dependable and safe. With a new year ahead of him and another decent RB in the backfield (Brown), Woodhead has lost some of his luster. Doubt has crept in. Can he really score eight total TDs again? In the 10th round, Woodhead is worth taking the risk.

|9.05||KFFL - While Woodhead is not your conventional RB2, he caught 76 balls last year and should be good for around 60-65 this season. That is weekly PPR playability.|
