2013 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)

Last updated on Aug-24-2013 by Jeb Gorham

Woodhead is an interesting addition to San Diego's rushing core. Mathews will take the lead, but Woodhead, Brown and McClain can all change pace and add value to this running game. Woodhead should be categorized as a sleeper considering his new team and undefined role. I think he has great potential to perform in this scenario, so keep your eyes on him in your draft. You might be able to steal him.

Update 8/23/13 - Woodhead could be a draft day steal or a great keeper wonder this season. His ADP keeps him eligible later in drafts and if you have him in a keeper league, his value of $0 is wonderful. Woodhead looks to be the beneficiary of a short-focused passing game. His PPR value could be solid.

2013 Mock Draft Results

10.07 Fantasytaz - Jim Day - Woodhead is one of the RBs I am targeting late in most of my drafts. He landed in a good situation in San Diego. Playing behind oft-injured Ryan Mathews is never a bad thing, but the fact is that he does many things better than Mathews. He is a much better pass protector, catches the ball better and is much more durable. It will not surprise me at all if Woodhead actually starts 5 or so games, but even with Mathews starting Woodhead will be on the field for almost all 3rd downs.

9.07 The Huddle - There were other banks ranked higher on my cheat sheet who were still available, but Woodhead's upside in a PPR format warrants a bit of a reach. He was a top-25 fantasy back with a sliver of a role in New England last year; now he's Ryan Mathews' caddy, which can only help his numbers in 2013.

10.07 DynastyLeague Football - With multiple flex positions in a PPR league, Woodhead can be a poor man's Sproles in SD at worst. If Ryan Mathews can't get it together he has a chance to be much more than that. This pick has the possibility of being one of the steals of the draft, in my opinion.

9.10 FootballDiehards - Love me some Woodhead. ... In addition to providing an excellent outlet for Philip Rivers on passing downs, it's worth noting that Woodhead touched the ball over 100 times per season on average in New England and often was asked to handle short-yardage duties near the goal line despite his diminutive stature. He figures as the primary backup to Ryan Mathews, who has missed time in each of his first three NFL seasons because of injuries.
