Fantasy Impact: Danny Woodhead is entering his eighth NFL season as the No. 2 running back on the San Diego Chargers behind 2015's rookie bust, Melvin Gordon. Woodhead had an outstanding camping last season as a receiver out of the backfield. In 16 games, he caught 81 targets for 756 yards and six touchdowns, adding another three scores on the ground. In the upcoming fantasy football campaign, consider Woodhead a mid-to-low end RB2 who's upside depends solely on Gordon. If the second-year pro struggles once again, Woodhead could see an ample increase in playing time and light up the fantasy scoreboards especially in PPR formats.

His volume should decrease. I look for Gordon to take a big step forward.

Last season, Woodhead was the No. 10 fantasy running back in fantasy points scored. This year, the Chargers actually have a healthy offensive line, Keenan Allen should be back and Danny Woodhead is still expect to get plenty of touches, so there is no reason he should be drafted so low, especially in PPR leagues.

With Melvin Gordon stinking up the place and the Chargers receivers constantly nursing injuries, Woodhead saw a ton of usage last season. Almost all of his value came through the air though, as he averaged just 3.4 yards per carry, while catching 80 passes. With Keenan Allen and Stevie Johnson back and the addition of Travis Benjamin and Hunter Henry, his receptions will take a hit and if Melvin Gordon can step up even a little, Woodhead's ceiling might get smashed in.
