2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
If you were naming off the top 12 fantasy running backs in the NFL from 2015, chances are that you would stop for a moment after reading Danny Woodhead’s name. Did he really finish 12th at the position in Non-PPR leagues? He did. Very, very quietly. Perhaps more surprisingly is that it’s nothing new for Woodhead to be ranked high in fantasy production at the position. With the exception being a 2014 season which was ended early by injury, Woodhead has been a top-25 fantasy running back in three out of the past four seasons. But even with that kind of a track record, Woodhead not only fails to get the praise he should, but he is often completely forgotten about on fantasy draft day.

2015 was perhaps the time when Woodhead was most disrespected by the fantasy industry, primarily because of the addition of his teammate, Melvin Gordon. Woodhead didn’t get nearly the amount of carries that Gordon did, but his production in the passing game simply cannot be overlooked. He finished the season as the only running back in the league to be targeted more than 100 times (107) and his 81 receptions and 756 receiving yards led all players at the position.

While Gordon is being drafted ahead of Woodhead once again in standard fantasy leagues, don’t be surprised if Woodhead once again sneaks onto the field more often than Gordon owners would like to see, especially on passing downs. The high number of receptions that Woodhead can produce gives him a nice floor most weeks, but his lack of touchdowns doesn’t often allow him to be one of the high-end scorers very often. Woodhead is one of the players who is most affected by scoring systems, so be aware of how your league scores receptions before your draft and then make your decision on Woodhead accordingly.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Danny Woodhead out for year, torn ACL
Gordon an every-week RB2
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 19, 2:25 pm

San Diego Chargers
Chargers RB Danny Woodhead has torn his ACL, source said. His MRI just came back. He's out for the season. Bad blow. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday'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.


Injury Keenan Allen out for season
Suffered torn ACL, minor cartilage damage in Week 1 loss
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 12, 6:10 pm

San Diego Chargers
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)

FFToday'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.


Injury Woodhead recovered from ankle sprain
Ready to go for training camp
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jul 25, 8:00 am

San Diego Chargers
Their spring ended with a scare, Danny Woodhead suffering an ankle sprain that could’ve 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. “It took a couple weeks, but now I’m as healthy as I’ve been in a long time,” Woodhead said. “I feel great going into the season.” (San Diego Union Tribune)

FFToday'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.


Injury Melvin Gordon expected to be full-go by camp
Took part in spring camp as well
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 30, 2:40 pm

San Diego Chargers
Melvin Gordon, said LaDainian Tomlinson in December, will rebound from an uneven rookie season. Following microfracture knee surgery Jan. 5, the 2015 first-round draftee took part in spring camp and is expected to be back to 100 percent in training camp. Chargers players say OC Ken Whisenhunt's return bodes well for the ground game and Gordon in particular. In Whisenhunt's other season with San Diego, RB Ryan Mathews got his career back on track and led the Bolts down the stretch to a playoff berth. (San Diego Union-Tribune)

FFToday's Take: By all accounts, Gordon's rookie season went about as poorly as it could have. Not only did Danny Woodhead steal a significant chunk of his potential red-zone work, but the No. 15 overall pick received no help from his offensive line and then hurt his knee late in the season. Gordon's 7.03 ADP in PPR this summer is understandable, but one he should be able to outperform with only slightly better luck, assuming his knee holds up.
