Woods will bring a massive frame who runs routes with suddenness and can more than hold his own in the blocking department.

Despite his large frame, Woods is an asset in the passing game. However, with Granson and Alie-Cox already on the roster, Woods may not see the field often. He will likely battle for reps with Granson this offseason.

Woods is clearly not draftable in redraft formats, but may be worth a third-round flier in dynasty leagues.
