|A pleasant surprise in 2010 as a late training camp addition after being cut by the Jets, Woodhead saw his touches and production drop in New England last season. After registering 131 touches for 925 yards and six touchdowns in 2010, he posted just 95 touches for 508 yards and one score in 2012. With Shane Vereen expected to be healthy after several nagging injuries ruined his rookie season and Joseph Addai added in free agency, Woodhead has plenty competition for the teamís pass receiving role out of the backfield. He isnít expected to get consistent touches this season and that makes him a borderline RB5 on your fantasy squad.
| Danny Woodhead out for year, torn ACL -- Mon Sep 19 2:25 pm --|
Gordon an every-week RB2

FF Today's Take: The Chargers have now lost two key pieces to their offense in back-to-back weeks. Melvin Gordon is now forced into a bigger role and should be the lead back and an every-week RB2 moving forward. Gordon had 24 carries in Week 2.
| Keenan Allen out for season -- Mon Sep 12 6:10 pm --|
Suffered torn ACL, minor cartilage damage in Week 1 loss
|Chargers coach Mike McCoy confirmed that receiver Keenan Allen suffered an ACL tear in his right knee and is done for the year after the team received results from an MRI on Monday.
The Chargers will place Allen on injured reserve, and use his vacant roster spot to activate rookie defensive end Joey Bosa from the exempt list.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Allen also suffered some minor cartilage damage in addition to the ACL tear. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Less than one year after suffering a lacerated kidney, Allen is getting hit with another major injury. While Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead should be locked into their respective TE1 and high-end RB2 designations in PPR leagues with the likely bump in volume they are about to receive, San Diego will also expand Travis Benjamin's role. The Chargers also love Tyrell Williams, and he could be the one that ends up replacing Allen as a starter. Williams is worth a speculative add in all leagues.
| Woodhead recovered from ankle sprain -- Mon Jul 25 8:00 am --|
Ready to go for training camp
|Their spring ended with a scare, Danny Woodhead suffering an ankle sprain that couldíve been far more severe. He walked off the field under his own power. This week, he will sprint back onto it.
More than six weeks separated the end of minicamp and start of training camp. That gave ample time to recover for Woodhead.
ďIt took a couple weeks, but now Iím as healthy as Iíve been in a long time,Ē Woodhead said. ďI feel great going into the season.Ē (San Diego Union Tribune)|
FF Today's Take: The sprained ankle apparently wasn't the high variety which allowed Woodhead to recover. He's 31 years old but is still locked into the Chargers passing back role and should see plenty of opportunities in 2016. Woodhead has been a top-25 fantasy running back in three out of the past four seasons.
