With the return of Ronnie Brown and signing of Danny Woodhead, the Chargers are more than hinting at the switch to a multi-back system that’s not so totally reliant on Ryan Mathews. Early as it is in the process, Woodhead would appear to be a highly viable addition as a third-down back, given his combination of blocking and pass-catching skills.
He’s already showing signs in camp of being a go-to guy for Rivers. Woodhead’s height certainly isn’t making it difficult for Rivers to find him, open as the back so often has been.
If this is the case, Mathews current ADP (5.05) may be high and Woodhead would be a bargain in the 9th or 10th round, especially in PPR formats. He has been a serviceable RB3/RB4 for a few years now and that shouldn't change much in San Diego, especially if he gets a healthy workload.
