Buccaneers | Optimistic about Doug Martin

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are optimistic that they'll have RB Doug Martin (shoulder) back at some point this season since they play one game in the next 18 days after their Week 8 contest Thursday, Oct. 24. Martin will strengthen his shoulder and wear a harness over the next 18 days, and the target date for his return is Nov. 11. If he experiences a setback, he'll be shut down for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Good news for Martin owners. Continue to keep him stashed on your roster. In the meantime, if you haven't already, Mike James is the waiver wire addition if you need another body at the RB spot. He'll receive the majority of work in Martin's absence.
