2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


I have to admit I missed on Woodhead's value in 2015. The Chargers passing offense made a huge step forward as a result of a poor running game. This led to the RBs being much more involved in the passing game with about a 50 percent growth in opportunity. The injury to Keenan Allen also added to his success. Danny finished as the third-highest scoring back in PPR leagues while setting career highs in catches (80), receiving yards (755), and TDs (9). His catch rate (75.5) remains elite while his value in the run game still lacks explosiveness (98/336/3 - 3.4 yards per rush), which is a result of a weak offensive line. In a way, he's a WR playing RB with any of his production the run game being a bonus. His opportunity is outlined pretty well in his two healthy seasons in San Diego (70+ catches with over 1000+ combined yards and mid-level TDs). He projects as a solid RB2, who more upside if the Chargers' passing game remains in line with 2015.
