|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.

Torn cartilage in left knee
|Chargers rookie RB Melvin Gordon will miss the team's final two games, coach Mike McCoy said Monday, due to torn left-knee cartilage the running back sustained against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
Gordon, who went 15th in the NFL Draft, finished his rookie season with 641 rushing yards on 184 carries (3.5 per carry). He caught 33 of 37 passes for an average of 5.8 per reception. His longest rush was 27 yards. Though Gordon never scored a touchdown this season, he also seldom played when the offense reached the red zone. (San Diego Union-Tribune)|
FF Today's Take: Gordon's rookie season will go down as a huge disappointment based on his low YPC, four lost fumbles and the fact he didn't score a single touchdown on over 200 touches. It should be noted, however, that he was often pulled for Danny Woodhead in the red zone and suffered from one of the worst run-blocking lines in the NFL. Assuming San Diego addresses its shortcomings up front this offseason, Gordon has a chance to live up to expectations in 2016. The Chargers will play out the string with Donald Brown and Woodhead in the backfield.
