Danny Woodhead | RB | San Diego Chargers

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead is being used as a slot receiver and caught two passes in his preseason debut against the Arizona Cardinals. WR Eddie Royal (lung, concussion) has been sidelined in the preseason with a bruised lung and concussion. WRs Vincent Brown and Malcom Floyd are expected to be the starting wide receivers in Week 1. Woodhead may join the offense in third-down situations, and WR Keenan Allen should mostly work out of the slot.
Huddle Up: The Bolts do need playmakers, and Woodhead is coming off a career receiving year (40-446-3) in New England. That mean he has some later-round sleeper potential, particularly in PPR leagues.

The San Diego Chargers are expected to use RB Danny Woodhead like they did RB Darren Sproles when he was a member of the Chargers. Woodhead is expected to be used on third downs and in the two-minute offense. He could also be used as a slot receiver at times during games.
Huddle Up: Woodhead has much more value in PPR formats because of his ability as a pass catcher. He could wind up being a solid weekly flex play in PPR leagues given Ryan Mathews' inconstancy so far in his career. Regardless of Mathews, Woodhead is expected to have a big role in the Chargers' offense this season.

San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy lauded RB Danny Woodhead for his versatility and expects him to be in a lot of offensive packages this coming year.
Huddle Up: Woodhead, who has spent the past 3 seasons as part of the Patriots' RB jumble, figures to be the main beneficiary of Ryan Mathews' inability to step up as a durable, do-it-all No. 1 back.

The New England Patriots value impending free-agent RB Danny Woodhead but may not be willing to pay him what he is looking for because they have depth at the running back position.
Huddle Up: Woodhead is one luxury the Pats can do without as Stevan Ridley stepped forward as a No. 1 back, while Shane Vereen emerged as a dual threat late in the season.

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said RB Danny Woodhead was available to go back into the team's playoff game Sunday, Jan. 13, if needed. Woodhead should be available for the AFC Championship Game.
Huddle Up: Shane Vereen's increase in touches was due largely to Woodhead's absence, so if Woodhead is healthy expect him to get the work in the passing game while Vereen returns to spot duty.
