Woodhead to play 'big' receiving role | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Ravens HC John Harbaugh told The Associated Press this week that RB Danny Woodhead is "a big part of the passing game." QB Joe Flacco added that the free-agent addition returned something to the offense that had been missing since Ray Rice left. "Ever since we lost Ray, we haven't had the type of back quite like Ray was and quite like Danny is in the passing game," Flacco said. "They just have a very good feel for when they're open, how to get open, how to sit in holes, how to find my eyes." Rice caught 58+ passes in each of his 5 seasons as Baltimore's starter, including years of 76 and 78. Woodhead will have to share his new backfield with deft receiving back Kenneth Dixon once the later returns from a PED suspension. But a team that has lost WR Steve Smith, TE Dennis Pitta and WR Kamar Aiken from last year offers lots of available targets. Woodhead's a nice PPR value at his current mid-Round 7 ADP in MFL10 drafting.

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.

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.
