Buccaneers | Doug Martin's competition falls to injury

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin carried seven times for 23 yards in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 17, against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: LeGarrette Blount (knee) left Friday's game with a knee injury, and will have further tests. If Blount has a serious injury which forces him to miss any extended period, Martin would open as the team's starter. Both were already vying for the job in camp. Martin would be a solid RB2 or 'flex' fantasy option if he starts out as the top tailback in Tampa.
