RB - FA
Week 3 Outlook
NFL Network's Mike Garafolo is reporting former Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead has announced his retirement from the NFL.
"It's time to say goodbye to the game I love," Woodhead said via his personal Instagram account, announcing his retirement from the NFL after 10 seasons in the league. One of the prominent pass-catching backs of our generation, Woodhead's career could have been that much better but couldn't shake the injury-woes -- he only played in 10 games in the last two years. Woodhead will retire with 2,238 yards and 15 TDs as a rusher and a 300-2,698-17 stat line as a receiver while playing for the Jets, Patriots, Chargers and Ravens.
Danny Woodhead had one carry for three yards and four receptions on six targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Bengals.
Woodhead didn't have much of an impact after returning from a hamstring injury in Week 11, he just never looked 100%. He is signed through 2019 but is no lock to return with a $2.5M salary.
Danny Woodhead had one carry for eight yards and five receptions on six targets for 33 yards in Saturday's 23-16 win over the Colts.
Woodhead is perfect for Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense, he plays a specific role and is good at it. The matchup next week is a solid one against a Bengals defense flamed for over 100 passing yards by Jerick McKinnon Week 15.
Danny Woodhead had one carry for one yard and six receptions on seven targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 27-10 win over Cleveland.
The targets and receptions represented season-highs for Woodhead and his usage might exceed today's numbers if Jeremy Maclin sits next week against the Colts.
Danny Woodhead had two carries for seven yards and four receptions on five targets for 29 yards in Sunday night's 39-38 loss to the Steelers.
Woodhead hasn't been much of a factor since returning from injury, recording less than 30 yards receiving in each of the last three weeks. He'll be a low-end PPR FLEX candidate for the Week 15 matchup against the Browns.
