He never look fully healthy and showed signs of decline in his age-32 season. Woodhead is signed through 2019, but isn't a lock to return at his $2.5 million salary. Sun, Dec 31, 2017 08:21:00 PM

Danny Woodhead caught 5-of-6 targets for 33 yards in the Ravens' Week 16 win over the Colts.

The receiving back added an eight-yard rush. Woodhead has been a catch-and-fall specialist since returning from his hamstring injury. Admittedly, it's a skill-set that suits 2017 Joe Flacco. Woodhead is averaging just 6.3 yards per grab.

Danny Woodhead caught 6-of-7 targets for 31 yards with one yard rushing on his lone attempt in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Browns.

The targets and receptions were season highs for Woodhead, but it was another nondescript performance for the 32-year old receiving back. Woodhead will enter Week 16 as just a low-ceiling option in PPR formats only against the Colts.

Danny Woodhead caught 4-of-5 passes for 29 yards in Week 14 against the Steelers.

He had just two carries for seven yards. Woodhead tied for the second most targets behind Jeremy Maclin. It's another nondescript game for Woodhead, who hasn't had over 30 receiving yards the last three weeks. Woodhead hasn't been much of a factor since returning from injury. He's not more than a low-end PPR FLEX for Week 15.

Danny Woodhead rushed three times for nine yards while catching two passes for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Lions.

With the Ravens up 20-0 at the half, the game never set up for Woodhead to be active, similar to each of his first three games since coming off injured reserve. Woodhead has now totaled 128 yards from scrimmage over his four games since returning from injury. Woodhead could be more prominently involved next week against the Steelers, but will only be a low floor and ceiling flex option in PPR formats.

Danny Woodhead rushed four times for 22 yards and caught all four of his targets for 23 yards in the Ravens' Week 12 win over the Texans.

He watched as both Buck Allen and Alex Collins scored rushing touchdowns. Allen received only six touches to Woodhead's eight, while lead-back Collins got the ball 17 times. Woodhead still played just 22 snaps after playing 13 last week, and Allen was in for 15 plays. This looks like a backfield to avoid for Week 13 versus Detroit outside of Collins and his newfound touchdown ability.

Ravens OC Marty Mornhinweg said Danny Woodhead won't be on a snap count against the Texans in Week 12.

Woodhead saw just 13 snaps last week in his return from a torn hamstring but won't have any restrictions on Monday night. Alex Collins remains the Ravens' lead ball carrier, though Woodhead should play an active role on passing downs. He'll be a flex consideration against Houston.

Danny Woodhead caught 5-of-6 targets for 21 yards in Week 11 against the Packers.

Woodhead only had one carry, but was featured in the short pass game. He played ahead of Buck Allen, who had just four touches. Woodhead looks like a major part of Baltimore's offense going forward. He's on the FLEX radar for Week 12.

Danny Woodhead (hamstring) is active for Week 11 against the Packers.

Woodhead will make his season debut after getting removed from IR this week. He's expected to resume his pass-down role over Buck Allen, with Alex Collins remaining the starter. Woodhead's return has made Terrance West a healthy scratch.

Ravens activated Danny Woodhead (hamstring) from injured reserve.

The Ravens tried to play coy this week, but Woodhead was always expected back. Ravens OC Marty Mornhinweg said Alex Collins will remain the team's featured back even with Woodhead returning, but that "featured" role has mostly consisted of early-down work. Woodhead should be the primary passing-down back once he is fully ready to go, a role Buck Allen had ridden to the RB21 spot in standard scoring. Woodhead is a risky play this week, but he should be a fantasy starter the rest of the way.

According to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun, the "expectation remains" that Danny Woodhead (I.R., hamstring) will return against the Packers in Week 11.

Coach John Harbaugh has been noncommittal when asked about Woodhead's status for Week 11, though Zrebiec is hearing he'll be activated from injured reserve on Saturday. Woodhead has practiced all week and appears to be healthy after missing the Ravens' last eight games with a torn hamstring. Alex Collins will remain the Ravens' lead ball-carrier, though Woodhead should still see plenty of work, especially as a pass-catcher. Woodhead's return is bad news for Buck Allen, who had been filling his role on passing downs.
Fri, Nov 17, 2017 01:35:00 PM

Coach John Harbaugh said the Ravens will make a decision on Danny Woodhead's (hamstring) Week 11 status this weekend.

"We'll be ready if he goes," Harbaugh said. "We’ll be ready if he doesn’t go." Woodhead has yet to be activated from I.R., and Harbaugh said the trainers and doctors will make that final call this weekend. Woodhead has been practicing this week. If he doesn't play, Buck Allen will again handle passing downs. If Woodhead suits up, Allen will be rendered nearly useless in fantasy.

The Ravens are "not sure" Danny Woodhead (hamstring, I.R.) will be ready to play in Week 11 against the Packers.

"It's kind of hard to predict," said coach John Harbaugh. Woodhead himself was also noncommittal on his Week 11 availability when asked by reporters last week. Woodhead will practice on Tuesday, but the Ravens won't decide his status until after they see how he responds. Woodhead suffered what amounted to a torn hamstring in Week 1 and has been on I.R. ever since.

Danny Woodhead (hamstring, injured reserve) is practicing again this week, but won't guarantee he will return when first eligible in Week 11.

"I'm feeling good but I understand there's a process," Woodhead said. Woodhead hasn't played since Week 1. Despite his words of caution, most signs suggest he will indeed suit up against the Packers on Nov. 19.
Tue, Nov 7, 2017 01:15:00 PM

Danny Woodhead (hamstring, injured reserve) has resumed practicing.

It puts Woodhead on course to be activated when first eligible in Week 11. He'll be returning to a crowded backfield, but will likely blow by Buck Allen as the Ravens' pass-catching back. If you have a spare roster spot, it's not a bad time to stash Woodhead in PPR leagues.
