2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
The plan for Danny Woodhead has likely changed greatly from the day he was signed by the Ravens in the off-season. Coming off a torn ACL in Week 2 of the 2016 season, Woodhead was brought in to spell young runners Kenneth Dixon and Terrance West, and provide a reliable 3rd down target. Since then, Dixon has been lost for the year with a torn up knee, and the road to meaningful snaps only goes through a guy who was dumped by the Cleveland Browns.

During his entire career, teams intend for Woodhead to only be a role player, but when coaches see the kind of consistency and ability he provides, he ends up being a big part of an offense. Take 2015 for example. The Chargers took Melvin Gordon with a high draft pick, but Woodhead out-touchdowned him 9-0 and had over 1,000 total yards to Gordon's 813. Even in the one full week he played last year, Woodhead scored a touchdown and had over 100 total yards while Gordon was barely noticeable.

John Harbaugh is a coach who respects veterans who can get the job done, even if they don't provide game breaking ability. Terrance West is a better running back than Woodhead, but the little dynamo from Chadron State is a better football player. In standard leagues Woodhead's lack of rushing attempts will hurt, but in PPR leagues I think he provides tremendous value. The big knock on Woodhead is age, and the fact he's missed most of the games in two of the last three years, but I'll be more than happy to snap him up in my drafts and have a high floor guy at a low price.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Dixon injury worse than expected, out for the year
Medial meniscus repaired today - not trimmed
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 25, 5:15 pm

Baltimore Ravens
Source: Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon will be out for the season. He had his medial meniscus repaired today - not trimmed. Out 4-5 months. Brutal (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Tough blow for Dixon and the Ravens. His initial recovery tine was set at 6-8 weeks but now he will miss the entire season. The Ravens will look to Terrance West, Danny Woodhead and are brining in Bobby Rainey for a workout. West and Woodhead will get a bump in our next projections and rankings update.


Injury Kenneth Dixon tears meniscus
Ravens RB will have surgery, miss about 6-8 weeks
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Jul 25, 1:13 pm

Baltimore Ravens
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Kenneth Dixon suffered a tear in his meniscus, according to a source informed of the situation. He'll have surgery today. The Baltimore Sun first reported the news. (NFL Network)

FFToday's Take: Dixon was already slated to miss the first four games of the season due to suspension for violating the league's performance enhancing drug policy, so this isn't a major development as he wasn't high on too many cheatsheets anyway. This does, however, add to the job security of Terrance West and Danny Woodhead and inches them a spot or two up the draft boards.


Danny Woodhead winning over Ravens
Flacco makes comparison to Ray Rice in the passing game
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 17, 6:40 pm

Baltimore Ravens
Danny Woodhead looked as elusive as ever during the Baltimore Ravens' offseason. While the Ravens are excited about what their new weapon can do after the reception, everyone has been more impressed with what Woodhead has done before the catch. "Really, ever since we lost Ray Rice, we haven't had a type of back that’s quite like how Ray was and quite like how Danny is in the passing game," quarterback Joe Flacco said. "They just have a very good feel for when they're open and how to get open, how to sit in holes, how to find my eyes, and you can already see that." (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: From 2009-13, no running back caught more passes than Rice, who averaged 67 receptions a season during that span, and that is considered one of the primary reasons why Baltimore outbid the Broncos and Chargers to secure his services. It should come as no surprise if Woodhead pushes for 70-plus catches given the fact the Ravens lost players like Steve Smith, Dennis Pitta and Kyle Juszczyk in the offseason. Owners could easily make a case Woodhead will be a top-20 PPR back this fall.


Terrance West in line for big workload?
OC: I'm looking forward to him toting the rock
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 15, 5:55 pm

Baltimore Ravens
Ravens senior offensive assistant Greg Roman: "I'm very excited about Terrance West. I'm looking forward to him toting the rock this year." (Baltimore Sun)

FFToday's Take: To be fair, Roman was only asked about West, not Kenneth Dixon, who will miss the first four games of the season due to a PED suspension. However, ESPN's Jamison Hensley suggested earlier this month West is the "unquestioned starter". Caution is advised, if only because Dixon is the more explosive back and Danny Woodhead is a more complete back who will likely replace West in the red zone. It's hard to imagine West being much more of a fantasy factor this year than he was in 2016.
