Danny Woodhead to sign with Ravens

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting former Los Angeles Chargers running back Danny Woodhead is signing with the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Earlier in the offseason, there were reports that the Ravens would add a running back in free agency, and they did. They are signing Woodhead when the free agency signing period opens on Thursday. Woodhead, who missed 14 games in 2016 due to a torn ACL suffered in Week 2, is now "fully healthy" after undergoing surgery to repair the injury, per Rapoport. He'll likely assume his usual role as the primary receiver out of the backfield in Baltimore, while Kenneth Dixon enters 2017 as the starter, sending Terrance West to the bottom of the totem pole for touches.

Danny Woodhead 'ahead of schedule' in his rehab

Los Angeles Chargers beat writer Michael Gehlken reports running back Danny Woodhead (knee) is "six weeks ahead of schedule" in his recovery from an ACL tear.

Fantasy Impact

Woodhead suffered a torn ACL in Week 2 of the 2016 regular season and was placed on IR shortly after. Because of the severity of the injury and the recovery time that comes along with it, Woodhead is still months away from being fully ready for offseason workouts. He will likely be on the shelf until training camp and could begin the mid-summer sessions on the PUP list. The 31-year-old running back is an impending free agent this offseason.

Danny Woodhead suffers torn ACL, is done for the year

San Diego Chargers running back Danny Woodhead tore his ACL against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2, according to Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

The team was fearing the worst, and the results of the MRI confirmed their fears. Melvin Gordon is locked into a huge workload going forward and could flirt with low-end RB1 numbers the rest of the season as a result. Getting up there in age, it is fair to wonder if Woodhead can successfully rebound from this injury.

Danny Woodhead to undergo more tests Monday

Chargers RB Danny Woodhead will undergo further tests on his right knee Monday. The team hopes that Woodhead suffered only a sprained MCL, which would likely mean a return at some point this season.

Fantasy Impact

Woodhead's injury situation will be clarified Monday. If Woodhead misses any time RB Melvin Gordon would see the biggest boost in carries and targets. Rookie RB Kenneth Farrow could also get some reps and looks to be Gordon's handcuff.
