Danny Woodhead placed on IR

Danny Woodhead has officially been placed on IR due to a hamstring injury. He is eligible to return in Week 11 this season.

Fantasy Impact

Woodhead's hamstring never seemed right and the team will now give it time to heal. In a corresponding move, the team signed Jeremy Langford from their practice squad. Javarius 'Buck' Allen seemed to be the biggest beneficiary as he received 21 carries in Week 1 and also saw more offensive snaps than Terrance West.

Danny Woodhead to miss even more time?

Updating an earlier report, ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Baltimore Ravens running back Danny Woodhead (hamstring) is expected to miss the next 6-to-8 weeks of football activities with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact

Initially, it was reported that Woodhead would miss 4-to-6 weeks with his hamstring. However, Schefter's latest report is suggesting more of a 6-to-8 week timeframe. Although it is not a lot of time added on, it is roughly another two weeks of football he'll be out. Still, he is worth hanging on to roster size permitting. Terrance West and Buck Allen are in line to share the workload in Woodhead's absence, but keep in mind, the latter out snapped the former in Week 1 and is viewed as the more versatile back by John Harbaugh.

Danny Woodhead to miss extended time with injury

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Baltimore Ravens running back Danny Woodhead (hamstring) is expected to miss the next 4-to-6 weeks of football activities with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact

The good news is that Woodhead will return at some point in 2017. The bad is that he will miss at least a month of football activities and is another blemish on his injury-filled resume. From a fantasy perspective, Woodhead's absence opens the door for Buck Allen. The Week 2 waiver wire add is in line to receive an expanded workload while Woodhead is out, likely, as the Ravens' early-down back. For Terrance West, he is expected to assume Woodhead's vacant role as the team's primary receiver out of the backfield, per reports, and is the Baltimore rusher with the most upside. Since this is likely a short-term injury for Woodhead, he should remain on fantasy rosters, especially in leagues with a deeper bench.

Danny Woodhead leaves game with apparent hamstring injury Sunday

Danny Woodhead left Sunday's game after grabbing his left hamstring and is listed as doubtful to return.

Fantasy Impact

Woodhead dealt with hamstring injuries in the offseason and appears to have aggravated an existing hamstring injury as he went down on a non-contact play. Monitor his status heading into Week 2 but expect to be without him for at least a week, if not longer.

Woodhead, Maclin return to practice

The Baltimore Sun's beat reporter Jeff Zrebiec reported that both Jeremy Maclin and Danny Woodhead practiced in full on Wednesday and are good to go for Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

There was never any doubt about Maclin, but Woodhead was dealing with a dreaded soft-tissue injury that can re-aggravate at any time, so it's good to see him practicing early in the week. Considering the lack of options the Ravens have in the passing game, Woodhead will be involved often when he's on the field. If he practices in full the rest of the week, feel free to lock him into lineups as a solid flex-play. Maclin has a dream matchup with Darqueze Dennard this week with Adam Jones out on suspension. It's a shame we haven't got to see him work with Flacco very much, but he looks like a strong WR3 this week.
