Fantasy Football Outlook: While Danny Woodhead has moved on from the Patriots, he might end up with an even better fantasy outlook in San Diego. The Chargers have a long history of using their running backs out of the backfield and Woodhead will certainly be the next in line for 40 plus receptions.

While Stevan Ridley and BenJarvous Green-Ellis proved to be durable backs in front of Woodhead, we can’t say the same for starter Ryan Mathews.

Clump Mathews in with other talented, yet often injured, running backs like Darren McFadden and DeMarco Murray and it’s understandable that Woodhead could see an expanded role if and when Mathews goes down.

That said, Woodhead is a running back we should target in the mid to late rounds for PPR leagues and likely avoid in standard leagues. I’m not sure we will see Woodhead find the end zone like we did in New England in his 2012 and 2010 seasons.

Even though Woodhead may see a career high in carries this season, he remains undersized and one or two other running backs will remain with him in the offense.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections

Danny Woodhead will continue to have a niche role in the Patriots offense, but unless Shane Vereen or Stevan Ridley are out for an extended amount of time, he’s not worth much more than a late round stash in deep PPR leagues.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections

Last season had to be the year of the white running back as Toby Gerhart was drafted in the second round then Peyton Hillis and Danny Woodhead become fantasy relevant starters. While Woodhead is listed at 5’8,195 on NFL.com, he can’t be more than 5’5, 170 as this guy rivals Darren Sproles (listed an 190 pounds, yeah right) as one of the smallest runners in the game.

As we all know by now Woodhead was cut by the Jets, and the Patriots picked him up and turned him into a media darling. While Woodhead found his way to fantasy relevance, the additions of Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley will probably squash his value going forward. Look for Woodhead to be used as a receiving down option in the Patriots’ offense, but he probably won’t come close to his 97 carries from as season ago.

Woodhead will remain a fan favorite as long as he’s in the game but don’t look to him as anything more than a late round PPR option at best.
