|A pleasant surprise in 2010 as a late training camp addition after being cut by the Jets, Woodhead saw his touches and production drop in New England last season. After registering 131 touches for 925 yards and six touchdowns in 2010, he posted just 95 touches for 508 yards and one score in 2012. With Shane Vereen expected to be healthy after several nagging injuries ruined his rookie season and Joseph Addai added in free agency, Woodhead has plenty competition for the teamís pass receiving role out of the backfield. He isnít expected to get consistent touches this season and that makes him a borderline RB5 on your fantasy squad.

Violating NFL policy on PEDs

FF Today's Take: This will take some of the shine of Dixon's upcoming fantasy hype. Dixon would likely have the Week 1 starting running back in Baltimore but after this suspension and the likely addition of Danny Woodhead, Dixon's value takes a hit.

Missed final three games of season with sprained PCL
|Melvin Gordon missed the final three games to a sprained posterior cruciate ligament. He finished with 254 carries for 997 yards and 10 touchdowns, adding 41 catches for 419 yards and two scores. By choosing a proactive approach Sunday, he ensured to be healthy when working to build off a breakout campaign. (San Diego Union-Tribune)|
FF Today's Take: Gordon will enter the offseason fully healthy, which was not the story last season when he underwent microfracture knee surgery. Despite finishing just three rushing yards shy of 1,000, Gordon established himself as a three-down force once Danny Woodhead (ACL) was lost for the season. The Chargers hope to bring back Woodhead, but there is little doubt he will play a bit role behind Gordon, who should be in the discussion to be among the top-five RBs in fantasy drafts.
