Woodhead will be good for 3rd Downs and the occasional games that Ryan Matthews miss. Woodhead can put up Fantasy Numbers if he gets his opportunities, which looks to be the case. The Chargers also lack a lot in the offensive line, which could bring Woodhead in the game on passing downs consistently.
What to say about Bilal. Even if he starts, he is still a bench option. Mike Goodson will be playing the role that Powell played in 2012, Goodson is also a better RB.

Woodhead has nice PPR value but in standard leagues is a shaky Flex at best to get 2013 started.
Powell is supposedly ahead of Ivory on the depth chart, so that's cause for concern. With this matchup, though, it may not matter.

Woodhead is now with the Chargers and will serve in the same capacity as he did in New England. Sparkplug/change-of-pace.

Woodhead figures to see the field plenty in third-down opportunities, so his worth will be limited. However, Ryan Mathews is made of glass, as we know, so Woodhead's workload could escalate in the event of an injury to the San Diego starter.
Powell can catch passes, but little else.
