by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (9/3/14) Chargers running back Danny Woodhead filled his role to near-perfection last year. He caught 76 passes, 36 more than he ever had in his career, and his catch rate of 91 percent led the team. Woodhead piled up a career-high 1,034 yards from scrimamge
San Diego plays an efficient style that moves the chains and controls the clock, and Woodhead is a big reason why. He converted first downs on 31 of his grabs, second-most in the league behind Jamaal Charles.

Donald Brown, Danny Woodhead both look sharp Friday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com (8/16/14) With Ryan Mathews sidelined, Chargers running backs Donald Brown and Danny Woodhead each saw a healthy share of work Friday night against Seattle in exhibition play.
Brown got the start and ripped runs for 4 and 5 yards before Woodhead got his first touch of the night on the opening drive. Brown finished with four carries for 16 yards and two catches for 13 yards and three targets. Woodhead rushed for a 24 yards on six carries.

Danny Woodhead gets off to a good start
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer (8/8/14) Chargers running back Danny Woodhead split first-team snaps with Ryan Mathews in the team's preseason debut vs. the Cowboys on Thursday. He totaled 10 yards on two carries and also picked up 25 yards on a flare pass when the Dallas defense blitzed and effectively left Woodhead unaccounted for. It's also worth noting Woodhead got a carry on a third down near the goal line, proving that the Bolts aren't afraid to use him inside the 10-yard line.

Owners are starting to get the itch to pull off that blockbuster trade. Our Dave Richard helps you get the better end of the deal with his Fantasy Trade Values for Week 3.
Danny Woodhead played well in his first year in San Diego and we'd like to see him do it again this season. He was the perfect complement to Ryan Mathews, but now the Chargers added Donald Brown as a free agent, which should affect Woodhead. He had 106 carries for 429 yards and two touchdowns in 2013 with a career-high 76 catches for 605 yards and six touchdowns. His value is obviously higher in PPR leagues than standard formats, and we'd draft him with a mid-round pick in those leagues. In standard formats, Woodhead is only worth a late-round pick, and keep an eye on Brown's role in training camp. But if Woodhead remains the passing-down back then he will still post quality stats, especially for PPR owners.
