The Baltimore Ravens are expected to activate Danny Woodhead using the injured reserve-return designation, making him eligible to play in Week 11 vs. the Green Bay Packers. According to Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun, the expectation is Woodhead will be active for Sunday’s match.

The return of Woodhead is imminent, something the Ravens have been hinting at this week. After injuring his hamstring in a Week 1 win at Cincinnati, Woodhead went straight to injured reserve in hopes of returning around the midpoint of this season.

It appears that will happen against the Packers this Sunday, making him a sneaky waiver-wire pickup this week, though it’s probably too soon to toss him in your starting lineup.

Fantasy Impact: If Woodhead is active, he will face a Packers defense allowing the eighth-most fantasy points to running backs this season. It’s tempting to play him, but keep Woodhead on the bench Sunday.
