The San Diego Chargers agreed on a two-year contract extension with running back Danny Woodhead, the team announced today. Woodhead originally signed a two-year contract when he joined the Chargers as an unrestricted free agent from New England in March 2013. His new contract runs through the 2016 season.
Woodhead finished #19 in standard formats and #12 in PPR, but the arrival of Donald Brown has seemingly put a dent in Woody’s stock heading into the 2014 season. It’s fair to think that he’s a stretch to finish in the top 20 again, but that doesn’t explain why he’s the #41 RB off the board in early drafts. He’s a capable RB3, especially in PPR formats.
