2015 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-in

Last updated on Nov-25-2015 by Shawn Childs


Update (11/25): As usual, almost everybody slept on Woodhead this summer and he's once again been an excellent source of PPR value. On top of a modest 64 carries for 237 yards and two TDs, he has an impressive 46 receptions for 530 yards and three TDs through the air. With all the injuries to the Chargers' pass-catchers, particularly the tight ends, Woodhead could end the season very strong. He's definitely the running back to own in San Diego. First-round pick Melvin Gordon is clearly a subpar option this year.

A broken leg ended Woodhead's season after Week 3 in 2014. Danny had 20 touches last year for 72 yards in what amounted to about two games. The previous season Woodhead delivered a top-12 RB season as a result of 76 catches and 1,034 combined yards with eight TDs. He had his success in an offense when RB Ryan Mathews had 311 touches. This year San Diego could use the same game model for the RB position, but Danny May have a third wheel in the equation (RB Branden Oliver). Woodhead is a solid pass-catching back with no explosiveness as a ball carrier. He'll see most of action on passing downs with a step back in opportunity. At best, 100 touches for about 650 yards with a couple TDs.

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.
