Martin acknowledged that he has had "two rough weeks," but he believes additional film study and more attention to detail will take care of any concerns.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin carried 18 times for 56 yards in the Week 13 game against the Denver Broncos, and he added three receptions for 42 yards.
Fantasy Tip: The yardage total from scrimmage was fair, but fantasy owners need touchdowns. Martin has failed to reach the end zone in three of his past four games since his breakout 251-yard, four-touchdown performance in Week 9. Still, he remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues.
