Patriots-woodhead-tackled
This might seem like an inappropriate proposition when our lead this week has only 19 carries for 90 yards on the year with zero rushing TD’s, but trust me, I’m writing this with the best of intentions. Danny Woodhead was the apple of Phillip River’s eye this past weekend with his 5 catches for 54 yards and 2 TD’s. “But Jack, those are his only two TD’s on the season?” That is correct diligent commenter, but please let me finish. On the year he is second on the Chargers with 22 receptions, has provided a different look  in the backfield with his 4.7 YPC and looks like he uses “what’s up brah” as a greeting. If you are looking for a bye week flyer or a potential PPR flex then look no further than Woodhead. Am I the only one here giggling every time I say his name? Before I move on to the ranks I want to pay my final respects to the 2013 Fantasy Baseball Season. It was one hell of a ride for those of us in the RCL and to my frequent commenters, I say thank you for making the ride that...

Game Preview: San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders

(Christopher Hanewinckel-US PRESSWIRE) The San Diego Chargers (2-2) head into the black hole to face their longtime AFC west rival the Oakland Raiders (1-3).

Rivers prospering in no-huddle, no-hurry offense

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By BERNIE WILSON AP Sports Writer It turns out that Philip Rivers didn't need to be fixed after two tough seasons. He just needed to be plopped into the no-huddle, no-hurry offense that rookie coach Mike McCoy and his top assistants drew up. Rivers has thrown for 400 yards twice in four games after doing it three times in his...

You Interpret: ESPN Refers To Danny Woodhead As “Working Man’s Darren Sproles”

So, ESPN, what are you trying to say here?  Is Darren Sproles not a hard worker?  Does Danny Woodhead work harder than Darren Sproles?  Perhaps there are some racial undertones here as well.  Either way, interesting take on the Chargers running back who is a diminutive dynamo.

San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders: 2013 Week 5 NFL Pick

San Diego Chargers (2-2) at Oakland Raiders (1-3) When I did my top-200 players back in August, the Chargers were the only team in the NFL that only had 1 player on the list (safety Eric Weddle). Even the Jaguars (Eugene Monroe, Maurice Jones-Drew, Cecil Shorts) and the Raiders (Jared Veldheer, Lamarr Houston) had more than one. They didn’t have a single player on the offensive...

Something In The Night
