RB Danny Woodhead has announced he’s retiring. Baltimore recently released him after an injury-marred 2017. Woodhead spent 9 seasons in the league after arriving as an undrafted free agent

The Ravens have released RB Danny Woodhead. A nasty hamstring injury cost him 8 games last year. He caught 33 balls in the other 8 but averaged just 6.1 yards per catch. Woodhead turned 33 in January and has missed 35 games over the past 4 seasons. We'll see how much interest he garners on the open market.

Ravens RB Danny Woodhead (hamstring) has been activated and will play tomorrow against the Packers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Woodhead carried once and caught 3 passes on his only series of the season. It's uncertain how big his role will be in his 1st action since then, though. Woodhead is a risk/reward Week 11 fantasy play.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh admitted Monday that he's still not sure whether RB Danny Woodhead (hamstring) will be ready for this weekend's game against the Packers. Woodhead returned to practice a couple of weeks ago is coming back from a significant hamstring injury. He should still be rostered in all PPR leagues at this point, but owners can't be counting on him for Week 11 yet.

Ravens RB Danny Woodhead (hamstring) returned to practice on Tuesday. That seemingly puts him on track to play when he's 1st eligible in Week 11. Woodhead hauled in 3 balls on Baltimore's very 1st drive of the season before going down. In 7 games since, RB Buck Allen has racked up 41 targets and 32 catches. There lots of PPR potential for Woodhead down the stretch.

The Ravens have placed RB Danny Woodhead (hamstring) on IR. HC John Harbaugh said Wednesday that Woodhead's hammy would cost him at least 4 weeks, but this move knocks him out for at least 8. (We're expecting him to be designated-to-return.") Woodhead isn't worth stashing outside of leagues with deep benches or an IR spot. Terrance West and Buck Allen will handle backfield duties while Woodhead is out.

Update: They also promoted RB Jeremy Langford from the practice squad.

Ravens RB Danny Woodhead is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with his hamstring injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That puts his return somewhere between Weeks 6 and 8. Baltimore's bye isn't until Week 10. We'd try to hang on to Woodhead -- at least in PPR leagues -- but it might be tough in shallow-bench leagues. Woodhead will also remain an injury risk when he returns as a 32-year-old RB with recurring hamstring trouble. Terrance West and Buck Allen will handle backfield duties for Baltimore while Woodhead is out.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports that the Ravens "fear" RB Danny Woodhead will be "out for a significant amount of time" with the hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Bengals. It's still unclear if this is the same hammy he hurt back in August. Regardless, fantasy owners need to be prepared to be without him for a while. His absence will leave Terrance West and Buck Allen as Baltimore's top 2 RBs. Allen actually out-carried West 21 to 19 vs. Cincinnati. Both guys saw 1 target. We could be looking at something close to a 50/50 split going forward. Allen is worth grabbing off the waiver wire in all leagues.

Ravens RB Danny Woodhead injured his left hamstring in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Bengals. He was sidelined by a hammy late in August, although it's unclear if this is the same one. (We're guessing it is.) We'll update his status when we learn more.

Ravens RB Danny Woodhead (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s set to make his Baltimore debut and is a solid PPR play for Sunday’s game against the Bengals.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh confirmed on Wednesday that QB Joe Flacco (back) is "ready to roll" for Week 1. He resumed throwing in late August and returned to practice this past weekend. Flacco isn't a recommended Week 1 fantasy play on the road against the Bengals. But his availability is good news for Baltimore's skill-position guys.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back), RB Danny Woodhead (hamstring) and WR Breshad Perriman (hamstring) all returned to practice on Saturday. It puts them on track to play against the Bengals in Week 1. Flacco, of course, will be under center. Woodhead figures to play a significant pass-catching role. We'll see how much action Perriman gets after missing all of August, but he won't be a fantasy option.

Ravens RB Danny Woodhead is sidelined with a hamstring injury, according to the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec. It's unclear when Woodhead was hurt or how serious the injury is, but Zrebiec doesn't expect him to play the rest of the preseason. Hammy issues are always concerning, especially for a 32-year-old RB playing in a new offense. Woodhead is a risk/reward pick at his early-7th-round ADP.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec believes RB Buck Allen has proved "worthy of an offensive role" this summer. "Allen has been the Ravens’ most effective back throughout training camp and the preseason," Zrebiec adds. That latter part isn't exactly saying much. Allen has averaged just 3.4 yards per carry through 2 exhibitions, but that bests Terrance West's 1.9, while Danny Woodhead has carried just once for 2 yards. Allen has some pass-catching chops -- he caught 45 balls as a rookie -- but has posted 3.8 YPC in both of his first 2 seasons. Don't bet on him becoming a fantasy factor this year. We'll see if he sees enough action to dent West's or Woodhead's numbers.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon will miss the entire 2017 season after undergoing surgery today to repair his torn meniscus, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The meniscus needed to be completely repaired, rather than the trimming procedure that would have sidelined him 6-8 weeks. Dixon's rehab is now expected to take 4-5 months. He should be a full-go for the start of the 2018 campaign, but he's now had 3 knee injuries in just a little more than a year in the NFL. Terrance West is the big winner here -- essentially locked in as the lead ball-carrier on an offense that should run more this year with Greg Roman on staff. He's not an exciting talent but should at least be a volume-based RB3 or flex. RB Danny Woodhead should also pick some up extra carries while dominating passing-down work.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon will undergo knee surgery today, according to the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec. The team believes Dixon has a torn meniscus but will know more after the operation. Zrebiec notes that meniscus tears usually sideline guys for 6-8 weeks -- but that can vary based on the severity. Dixon, of course, is suspended for the first 4 games of the season, so it's possible that this injury doesn't cost him any additional time. But he'll likely miss all of training camp and the preseason, costing him valuable reps to earn playing time. It's also worth noting that Dixon suffered a pair of knee injuries last summer, so durability is certainly becoming a concern. There's still a chance that he emerges as Baltimore's lead RB at some point this season, but Dixon can't be drafted as more than a late-round flier at this point. Terrance West will serve as the primary ball-carrier early on. Danny Woodhead will handle the majority of the pass-catching work.
