Chargers | San Diego likely to sign Dexter McCluster

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 10:40:49 -0700

Free-agent RB Dexter McCluster (Titans) is expected to sign RB Dexter McCluster shortly to fill the pass-catching role out of the backfield left behind by the season-ending ACL injury to Danny Woodhead, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Tip: McCluster is familiar with offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt from their days together in Tennessee. While McCluster isn't quite the well-rounded runner Woodhead is and won't be nearly as active at the goal line, he should be scooped up right away in most leagues. Given his familiarity with Whisenhunt's system, he should be able to contribute immediately and could have a Theo Riddick-like (circa 2015) impact in fantasy.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead placed on IR

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 13:33:09 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a torn anterior cruciate ligament Monday, Sept. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Melvin Gordon figures to be a three-down running back with Woodhead gone and is a borderline RB1 going forward. Branden Oliver is out for the season, too, so Kenneth Farrow might be worth a pickup in deeper leagues.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead likely out for season

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 11:48:55 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (knee) is reportedly still awaiting MRI results, but the team is "pretty certain" he tore his ACL in a Week 2 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Tip: Woodhead was ticketed for another huge pass-catching role with Keenan Allen suffering the same injury in Week 1. As a result of the former's injury, Melvin Gordon may very well become an every-down back and should be treated as a high-end RB2 going forward.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead helped off

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 13:52:24 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (knee) was carried off the field, Sunday, Sept. 18, unable to put any weight on his injured knee. Woodhead was being evaluated by team trainers on the sideline before a cart brought him into the locker room for further testing.

Fantasy Tip: This could be a huge blow to PPR owners looking for the explosive pass-catcher to be a weekly lineup play. Check back for more details.

Chargers | Melvin Gordon not benched in Week 1

Sat, 17 Sep 2016 12:04:02 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon drew compliments from offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt for his play in Week 1 versus the Kansas City Chiefs. Whisenhunt insists Gordon was mostly the victim of circumstance, suggesting San Diego had an effective personnel grouping including Danny Woodhead that got the offense into third-and-manageable situations in the second half. "I certainly was very pleased with how Melvin played. That's my first experience with him in a regular-season game. And I thought he did a tremendous job," Whisenhunt said.

Fantasy Tip: Woodhead held a 50-23 advantage in snaps over Gordon in a game the Chargers led by multiple scores for roughly half of the contests. Woodhead remains the most trusted option of the two at this point and Gordon's workloads are going to depend greatly on the flow of the game. The second-year back should expect to see roughly 15 touches per week going forward and be considered a strong RB3 for the time being.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead the preferred back?

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 18:37:33 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon had six carries in the second half against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 1, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt said he felt packages with RB Danny Woodhead were more effective.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon scored twice in the first half, so it is discouraging how his workload dropped in the second half. He still has time to carve out a steady role, but you should view him as a RB3 for the time being.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead would like long-term deal

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 23:58:43 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead would like a long-term deal with the club but contract talks have been unproductive, and he is now focusing on the upcoming season.

Fantasy Tip: Provided the contract talks don't prove to be a distraction, Woodhead could be a potential sleeper RB in terms of end-zone scores. He is the type of back that often plunges into the end zone from five yards or less.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead back at full health

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 14:32:22 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) said he's as healthy as he's been in a long time after suffering a scary ankle injury this offseason. The versatile running back added that he feels great heading into the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: Woodhead is one of the top pass-catching running backs in the NFL today. There's no reason to think he can't finish as an RB1 in PPR leagues, but it's safer to draft him as an RB2 in such formats with Melvin Gordon healthy and returning.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead to be ready for camp

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 13:57:07 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) is expected to be ready for training camp despite suffering a sprained ankle earlier in June.

Fantasy Tip: As stated earlier, Woodhead is a solid low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 candidate in PPR leagues despite splitting time with Melvin Gordon.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead has ankle sprain

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:42:32 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle in practice Wednesday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: Woodhead has avoided a serious injury, but the Chargers could take it easy with their unsung running back leading up to training camp. He's still a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 consideration in PPR leagues.
