San Diego Chargers running back Danny Woodhead has been having an impressive season relative to his late-round ADP. While he is not an integral part of the Charger's rushing attack, Woodhead has been earning his keep as a versatile receiving back. He has a total of 49 catches for 391 yards and four touchdowns (one rushing) on the season. Fantasy owners couldn't realistically ask for much more out of the former New England Patriot, who they likely stole in the late rounds of their drafts.
Fantasy Impact: In his first season with the Chargers, Woodhead has proven to be a Dareen Sproles-esque PPR monster. On pace for 98 catches on the year, the Chargers have moved Woodhead all over the field, lining him up in the backfield and splitting him out wide to exploit mismatches. With 27 catches in his last four games, Woodhead has been a nice security blanket for quarterback Philip Rivers.
In standard leagues, Woodhead doesn't make for a particularly appealing play. However, in PPR formats, he is a solid Flex option. Woodhead figures to be heavily involved in Week 10 as the Chargers take on Peyton Manning and the potent Denver Broncos. PPR owners should start him with confidence.
