Buccaneers | Doug Martin finds the end zone

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 19:44:16 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin finished with 14 carries for 53 yards and a touchdown and one catch for 11 yards in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has scored in both of his games since returning from suspension, and he is clearly the team's lead back. He should be no worse than a RB2 moving forward.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin ready for more work

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 09:04:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin admitted to wearing down after logging 26 snaps in his season debut in Week 5 but feels as though he is ready to go wire-to-wire in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals if necessary. "I feel like I can handle anything coach asks me to do. I'm prepared to do everything," Martin said.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Dirk Koetter seemed hesitant at the thought of adding too much to Martin's workload when asked about it Thursday, suggesting "he has no problem with any of his other backs" and giving Martin more work is something that will "present itself." Martin looked great in limited action in Week 5 and has certainly earned the right to be an every-week RB2 in fantasy, even in a difficult matchup against Arizona.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin made his season debut against the New England Patriots Thursday, Oct. 5, finishing with 74 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries and one catch for eight yards.

Fantasy Tip: Martin wasted no time reclaiming the lead role in the backfield, and he dominated the touches. Pencil him in as a RB2 against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin to have big role?

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 11:10:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has a chance to have a significant role on offense against the New England Patriots in Week 5 because the team believes his return can spark the offense, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Dan Graziano.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has missed the first three games because of a suspension and had limited practice time this week but should have a role against the Patriots. He should become the team's starting running back in the near future but it is not known how many touches he will receive this week. Owners can consider him a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in leagues.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin added to roster

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 12:21:20 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin was activated from the Reserve/Suspended list Monday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Martin's role for Week 5 is uncertain since it will be his first game of the season and the team plays on Thursday Night Football. He may see limited work if he is active against the New England Patriots because he missed the first three games, which makes him a risky option. Martin should become the starting running back in the near future and can be a weekly starting option when that occurs.

Buccaneers | Tampa Bay to use RBBC without Doug Martin

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 10:43:08 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers will most likely be the first- and second- down back, while Charles Sims will handle most of the third-down work and Peyton Barber will be the goal-line back while Doug Martin serves his season-opening three-game suspension, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine.

Fantasy Tip: No real surprises here, although Laine points out Barber has improved quite a bit and may have been the most explosive back in camp behind Martin in the preseason. As things stand right now, expect Martin to handle the early-down and goal-line work upon his return, while Sims keeps his role and Rodgers becomes more of a handcuff.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin now returning Week 5

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 06:47:27 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin will now be eligible to return from suspension in Week 5 after the team's Week 1 game was pushed to Week 11 due to Hurricane Irma.

Fantasy Tip: He'll still miss three games and return against the New England Patriots Oct. 5. One drawback now is he won't have a bye week, and he has a checkered injury history. That has to limit his upside some, but there is little risk in having him as an RB3.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin on suspended list

Sat, 02 Sep 2017 15:32:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin was placed on the Reserve/Suspended list Saturday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Martin will miss the first three games for the suspension, so it is not known what role he will have in the offense when he returns. He could be a No. 2 running back if he becomes the main running back when he returns but could also be a No. 3 or flex option if he is a part of a committee.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin finds end zone

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 20:19:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin rushed for 30 yards and one touchdown on five carries in the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Martin will miss the first three games of the regular season because of a suspension, so it is not known what his role will be when he returns. He has a chance to be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he is the starter when he returns from his suspension.

Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers could beat out Doug Martin?

Sun, 30 Jul 2017 12:16:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers has received plenty of praise from teammates and coaches about exceptional vision, toughness and his versatility, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine, who adds "there's always the possibility" Rodgers could remain the starter after Doug Martin returns from his three-game suspension to begin the season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers filled in nicely when called upon in 2016, but he is a longshot to overtake Martin if the latter is in his 2015 form - as general manager Jason Licht said he is. Rodgers' 129 carries last season were by far the most of his six-year career. He would do well to hit that mark as Martin's handcuff in 2017.
