Danny Woodhead: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Woodhead signed a two-year contract extension with the Chargers on Tuesday, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Woodhead proved to be a seamless fit in the running back committee with Ryan Mathews and Ronnie Brown last season, becoming quarterback Philip Rivers' favorite receiving option out of the backfield. The 29-year-old set career-highs with 76 receptions, six touchdowns and 1,296 all-purpose yards. Woodhead will carry most of his interest in PPR leagues in 2014, but considering the high volume of touches he'll see when combining his carries and receptions, he's worth owning in just about any format.
Woodhead finished the 2013 regular season with 429 rushing yards on 106 carries and 605 receiving yards on 76 receptions with a total of eight touchdowns.

Woodhead rushed a season-high 15 times for 54 yards and a touchdown, while also catching two passes for 14 yards Sunday against the Bengals.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Woodhead's five-yard touchdown rush opened the scoring Sunday and he was relied upon throughout the contest, in light of adverse weather conditions. Although his average wasn't anything special, Woodhead's 54 yards did mark a season-high. As usual, Woodhead will split time at running back with Ryan Mathews next weekend versus the Broncos, who he scored a receiving touchdown against in Week 10.
Woodhead had five carries for 18 yards and seven receptions on seven targets for 42 yards in Sunday's overtime victory over the Chiefs.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

A 5-8, 197-pound scatback, Woodhead totaled more than 2,100 yards and posted 14 touchdowns in three seasons in New England. Now in San Diego, Woodhead should do the same this season for the Chargers. He's expected to see a significant chunk of third-down work, and considering starter Ryan Mathews' durability problems, Woodhead has a good opportunity for increased carries even if he shares with fellow backup Ronnie Brown.

2012

Although he saw his receiving numbers cut nearly in half last year compared to the prior season, Woodhead is the favorite to act as New Englandís primary third-down back. The teamís depth chart also includes Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen and Joseph Addai, so thereís not much of a role for Woodhead beyond that. Aside from extremely deep PPR formats, Woodhead is probably no more than an emergency bye-week fill-in at best.

2011

Released by the Jets in training camp, Woodhead joined New England and made an impact. As a situational player, he totaled 926 yards and six touchdowns on just 131 touches. Expect him to be used similarly in 2011 as a member of a crowded Patriotsí backfield that includes BenJarvus Green-Ellis and two rookies. Woodhead has more value in PPR formats.

2010

He'll probably be the No. 3 or No. 4 back into the season, which means players will have to get hurt before Woodhead comes into any appreciable fantasy value. The Jets like his work ethic, but no one is deluded into thinking Woodhead is a future star.

2009

Woodhead enters traing camp as the Jets No.4 RB and as a result needs a break or two to make the team, let alone make any fantasy impact with Thomas Jones, Shonn Greene and Leon Washington ahead of him.
