What can you expect from Baltimore Ravens running back Danny Woodhead in 2017? At RotoViz, our motto is Seeing is believing. Our team leverages various internal apps and external resources to make that motto come to fruition. This series will provide you a fantasy outlook on our top-40 RBs according to projected points in PPR formats. My intent is to provide you a line of sight on the pros, cons, and projections for these RBs to empower you to make educated decisions on draft day. Did you know that Woodhead produced 1.91 yards per route run the last time he was on the field for an entire season back in 2015? Woodhead signed a three-year contract with the Ravens this offseason after a torn ACL ended his 2016 just two games in. His statistical body of work on a per game basis speaks for itself. Woodhead is expected to be the Ravens pass-catching specialist in an RB by committee with Terrance West. Woodhead caught 80 passes for 755 yards and scored six touchdowns in his last full season. A torn meniscus ended Kenneth Dixon‘s season and solidifies his role in the Ravens offense even more.
What effect will Woodhead’s recent hamstring injury have on his availability and efficiency during the regular season? Will West threaten his number of snaps played and touches? What impact will the addition of Ravens offensive coach Greg Roman have on the team’s running game? How will the Ravens defense influence game flow? I will address these questions and more while discussing the pros and cons of Woodhead’s role as part of the Ravens RB by committee.
RB Danny Woodhead is apparently dealing with a hamstring injury. Not sure we’ll see him rest of preseason. Hope is he’s OK for Week One.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiecsun) August 23, 2017
