Danny Woodhead | RB | San Diego Chargers

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead has signed a two-year contract extension. Financial terms were undisclosed.
Huddle Up: Take it as a definite sign Woodhead still figures heavily in the Bolts' RB plans after logging career highs in both rushes (106) and receptions (76) last season. And with the Chargers signing free agent Donald Brown to a 3-year, $10.5 million deal this offseason, you have to really wonder about the S.D. future of Ryan Mathews, whose 4-year contract is up after this season.

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.
