|Danny Woodhead winning over Ravens|
Flacco makes comparison to Ray Rice in the passing game
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 17, 6:40 pm
|Danny Woodhead looked as elusive as ever during the Baltimore Ravens' offseason. While the Ravens are excited about what their new weapon can do after the reception, everyone has been more impressed with what Woodhead has done before the catch.
"Really, ever since we lost Ray Rice, we haven't had a type of back that’s quite like how Ray was and quite like how Danny is in the passing game," quarterback Joe Flacco said. "They just have a very good feel for when they're open and how to get open, how to sit in holes, how to find my eyes, and you can already see that." (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: From 2009-13, no running back caught more passes than Rice, who averaged 67 receptions a season during that span, and that is considered one of the primary reasons why Baltimore outbid the Broncos and Chargers to secure his services. It should come as no surprise if Woodhead pushes for 70-plus catches given the fact the Ravens lost players like Steve Smith, Dennis Pitta and Kyle Juszczyk in the offseason. Owners could easily make a case Woodhead will be a top-20 PPR back this fall.
|Terrance West in line for big workload?|
OC: I'm looking forward to him toting the rock

|Ravens senior offensive assistant Greg Roman: "I'm very excited about Terrance West. I'm looking forward to him toting the rock this year." (Baltimore Sun)|
FFToday's Take: To be fair, Roman was only asked about West, not Kenneth Dixon, who will miss the first four games of the season due to a PED suspension. However, ESPN's Jamison Hensley suggested earlier this month West is the "unquestioned starter". Caution is advised, if only because Dixon is the more explosive back and Danny Woodhead is a more complete back who will likely replace West in the red zone. It's hard to imagine West being much more of a fantasy factor this year than he was in 2016.
