Buccaneers | Doug Martin should play in Week 3

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 07:41:01 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) has a good chance to play in Week 3 on Thursday Night Football. The team held him out of the Week 2 game to ensure that he would be ready for Week 3 at Atlanta. RB Bobby Rainey, who had 22 carries for 144 yards in Week 2, could be heavily involved as well.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned this week for further details on how much of a timeshare we can expect moving forward.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin could miss Week 2

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:44:29 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) will test his injured knee during pregame warmups, but he appears to be a longshot to play at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Bobby Rainey likely would see most of the time at running back if Martin is not able to play. Rainey would be a solid option on FantasyScore, because he would only cost $3,700. Rainey would also be useful in point-per-reception leagues.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin iffy to play

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:35:11 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) is unlikely to play Sunday, Sept. 14, in the opinion of beat writer Tom Krasniqi. RB Bobby Rainey is expected to see more action in Week 2, regardless of Martin's status.

Fantasy Tip: Martin might be too risky to play ($4,700; 9.4% of your cap on FantasyScore) at this point. Rainey is a solid bargain buy ($3,700; 7.4%) as a flex option for Week 2.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin endorsed by coach

Sat, 13 Sep 2014 20:23:13 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) is still the team's lead back, head coach Lovie Smith said Friday, Sept. 12. Smith also refuted reports that Martin was benched in Week 1 because he missed an assignment in pass protection.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is expected to play in Week 2 despite a knee injury, and it looks like he will at least have another shot to prove he can be the workhorse in the backfield. As long as he suits up, Martin should earn enough touches to put together a solid stat line, and he is a very affordable option at the running back position on FantasyScore with a salary of $4,700 (9.4% of cap).

Buccaneers | Doug Martin questionable

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 13:18:44 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 12, and is questionable for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has an attractive FantasyScore price of $4,700 (9.40% of cap), but he could be a risky play if he is not at full strength. It may be smart to look elsewhere this week.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin practices

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 11:10:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) returned to practice Thursday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: It is great news that Martin is back on the practice field as the team gets ready for Week 2, but it may be hard to justify Martin's FantasyScore price of $4,700 (9.40% of cap), especially if he is limited.
