Buccaneers | Doug Martin turning it up

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 05:46:36 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin rushed 23 times for 87 yards against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Nov. 27. He caught two balls for three yards and lost a fumble as well.

Fantasy Tip: He has carried the ball 24 and 23 times in respective weeks, and yesterday's 3.8 yards per carry was a season high. He has a good matchup against the San Diego Chargers next week as an RB2.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin totals 105 yards

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 19:16:46 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) rushed 24 times for 63 yards in the Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added three receptions for 42 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: The 27 touches was a good sign that Martin's hamstring issue is official behind him. He'll face a big test when the Seattle Seahawks come calling to Raymond James Stadium in Week 12. Treat him more as a flex fantasy option in that matchup.

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 14:21:40 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin ran 16 times for 33 yards and scored a 1-yard touchdown in his return to the gridiron Sunday, Nov. 13. The Buccaneers beat the Chicago Bears, 36-10.

Fantasy Tip: Martin wasn't expected to do much his first game back from hamstring issues, so the touchdown was a bonus. Martin will improve as time goes on, barring injury, so monitor how the team uses him,

Buccaneers | Doug Martin active for Week 10

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 08:58:21 -0800

Confirming previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) will be active for Week 10's game against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is active for the first time since Week 2 and has a somewhat unfavorable matchup this week against a Chicago defense that has been strong against the run this year. He is also expected to have a limited workload, so daily fantasy gamers should look for safer options.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin to have limited workload

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 07:22:01 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) is expected to be active for Week 10's game against the Chicago Bears, although his workload is likely to be limited, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has been sidelined since Week 2 and will be facing a tough Chicago run defense in his first game back, making him a risky play in all formats. RBs Peyton Barber and Mike James are also expected to see carries but neither player should be considered a viable fantasy option.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin will dress

Sat, 12 Nov 2016 12:23:47 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) will be active for the game Sunday, Nov. 13, against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Considering he was limited in practice this week, it's unlikely that he'll have a full load. The Bears have been good against opposing running backs, and Martin is a very risky flex option in Week 10.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin unlikely to play Week 10

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 12:41:01 -0800

Updating a previous story, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) was still doing rehab work during the portions of practice open to the media this week and doesn't appear prepared to play, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud.

Fantasy Tip: It seems very likely Tampa Bay will sit Martin out this week and hope he can get in a full practice or two next week. Peyton Barber and Mike James should see the bulk of backfield work this weekend against the Chicago Bears.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin to be game-time decision

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 11:23:09 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) has yet to be cleared to play and will be a game-time decision, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has not played since Week 2 and been limited in practice all week, so there is virtually no chance he'll be asked to carry a significant workload this weekend against the Chicago Bears. Even if Martin plays, owners should expect Peyton Barber to get the start and Mike James to see some work as well.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin participates in practice

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 16:07:10 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) participated in practice on a limited basis for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Even though he was only limited again, it's still good news that Martin was able to get in another practice, considering he's missed the last six games. The Muscle Hamster also said after Wednesday's session that he was feeling "fine," which could be an indication that he's ready to get back on the field. With Jacquizz Rodgers likely out again this weekend, Martin can be plugged back into lineups in all leagues as long as he is active.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin looking to do more

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 08:50:09 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) plans to do more in practice Thursday, Nov. 10, and felt fine after his first practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: The signs are that the team is going to tread cautiously with Martin after his season has mostly been a wash due to recurring hamstring strains. If he plays, he'll likely be limited, and he's probably not the best flex option against the Chicago Bears.
