Buccaneers | Doug Martin goes nowhere fast

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 17:32:14 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin ran 19 times for just 38 yards in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins and he had two grabs for six yards on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: It was a forgettable day for Martin, who had nowhere to go. Luckily for the offense it was Ryan Fitzpatrick to the rescue. He is averaging 2.0 yards per game, posting just 96 rushing yards over his past 47 attempts. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes right now heading into Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 13:55:02 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin rushed for 51 yards on 20 carries against the New York Jets in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has been a bit inconsistent this season and has been held to 58 yards over the last two games. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option next week and may struggle while Jameis Winston is sidelined.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin facing tough test

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 21:46:11 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin faces the Carolina Panthers in Week 8, and the Panthers haven't allowed more than 67 yards to a running back in any game this year.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has seen his number of carries go up but his yards decrease in the three games he has played this year, and he draws a tough matchup this weekend. He is a low-upside flex play.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin held in check

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 18:46:54 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin ran 20 times for 49 yards and caught two passes for 31 yards in a 30-27 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Martin's season-high 20 carries yielded a season-low 49 yards. He faces another tough matchup against the Carolina Panthers in Week 8, which relegates him to the lower end of the RB2 spectrum.

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.

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.
